Server move complete, however there are still some network and hardware changes to make.

Expect additional periodic downtime throughout the weekend. Thank you for your patience.

At some point tomorrow, NAS will be shut down for a physical server move. It may be down only a few hours, maybe all weekend. I don't know, but it WILL be back up. Please have patience, as I'm certain there will be unforeseen delays.

For those asking how to donate, I appreciate it. The NAS load has increased much over the last two weeks, and I expect it to continue in the future. I'll have more to say about this once the migration is complete and the seas are once again calm.

Love & Light

I believe NAS may be the internet's largest non-cloud-hosted mastodon instance.

going down for a quick backup, be back in a bit.

I'm going to be decommissioning one of the NAS-tangential servers later today (for those curious, it's the Wireguard bastion). Because this is a "hot-path" for the site, Cloudflare will probably throw some errors. All is well, I assure you. This will cut cumulative power consumption by half.

Server going to be going down for a complete data backup at some point in the next 12 hours. This will take a few hours to complete.

The Terabytes of NAS cat pictures will live on in perpetuity.

Server will be playing catchup for a bit while it pulls in everything missed during the downtime. Just a little turbulence folks, nothing to be worried about.

Upgrades to all infrastructure are complete, thank you folks. We know you don't have a choice in server administrators, so you'll take what we give you. Thanks for Tooting on NASocial.

Need to apply networking gear firmware updates, hold on tight!

Identified the problem, but I want to take a data snapshot before I fix it. Server will go offline for 20m or so during snapshot. After it's finished, I can make fix while the server is live.

I have no idea what caused the extended downtime, containers just didn't schedule correctly. Investigating....

Just made some changes to the caching system. Should be transparent to NAS members.

Database migrations were not automatically run after mastodon was updated automatically to the latest version. Unfortunately, errors like this are not caught by the server status checker.

Your experience has been improved, citizen.

Media almost all off of local storage and into cloud blob storage. I've reclaimed almost a TB of storage and offloaded lots of bandwidth.

Status available here, and will be available even when mastodon is down: nastatus.com

Jiggling the handle. Web interface and images may be temporarily broken while the transition completes. Will flush cache once finished. Mobile apps will probably work.
