🆕 The status.lol UI is now available! Just sign into https://home.omg.lol, pull up your address, and click the button in the Statuslog section. Let me know if you run into any issues!
Spontaneous evening omg.lol development stream — going to try to finalize the status.lol UI (hopefully!). Feel free to join in! 📺 https://twitch.tv/neatnik
⚠️ [API update, continued] When the refreshes occur, you’ll just need to update your API key wherever it’s in use. With that said, the next one will happen today at 5 PM UTC. I’m really sorry for the disruption!
⚠️ [API update, continued] I could spend a couple of days rewriting the refresh process to try to preserve API keys, but I think everyone would agree that the time would be better spent working on the core service (especially getting v2 launched so that these keys never rotate!). What I’ll do going forward, though, is post a note here in advance of server refreshes (and will try to avoid unscheduled refreshes), and also post another note confirming when they’re complete.

⚠️ [API update] In addition to the endpoints changing at some point (as mentioned here: https://social.lol/web/@omgdotlol/109059471189368382) I need to stress that API keys on the staging site are routinely rotated as part of the staging server refresh process. Until I rolled out status.lol, no one was using the API, so nobody really noticed or cared. But now there are a bunch of folks doing fun stuff, and I’m a little stressed out over the possible disruptions. 😬 (continues)
To all of the cool people already building stuff with the status.lol API, first, thank you! It’s so awesome to see that happening within just a couple of days. Second, uh, don’t get mad at me, but... the endpoints will be changing soon. I’ll post about it here when they do (and after this change, I don’t think they’ll change again). Just wanted to let you know in advance!

Earlier I discovered that your “reward” for attaining Affiliate status on Twitch is that your channel starts forcing ads on your viewers. No way to disable them—gross! So, today I set up Owncast and I’m now going to stream from https://home.omg.lol/stream. No ads or other BS — just me doing my thing, and everyone’s welcome to watch. 😀
