omg.lol boosted

Haven’t streamed in eight months — doing a little live development stuff with omg.lol! twitch.tv/neatnik

It’s going to be a rainy weekend here in Louisville — perfect for making more progress on omg.lol!

The social.lol server upgrade is complete. Everything went smoothly!

Tonight around midnight EDT / 4 AM UTC, I’ll be making a hardware upgrade to social.lol. Mastodon and IRC will be unavailable for a brief period (expecting less than 10 minutes total). If things get weird, though, look for an update on status.omg.lol. Thanks! 💛

💬 Some social.lol updates:

ℹ️ Our IRC service remains extremely stable.

ℹ️ Our Mastodon instance also remains stable.

ℹ️ Our server is, uh, wanting a bit more memory. So, I’ll fix that soon.

ℹ️ I was experimenting with a hosted web-based IRC client, "The Lounge", which is really nice — but I don’t think it’s going to be scalable in the way that I had hoped. I’ll soon be redirecting that to another web client, as well as sharing more info on IRC client options. 😄

social.lol update: IRC and Mastodon are both pretty stable and working well. The signup process for each is a bit rocky, so I’ll be working on improvements soon. Then it’s back to total focus on the omg.lol overhaul. 😄

Overjoyed at how omg.lol has developed into a complete Internet package a la carte.

OK, this should be working now. It’s still *super* slow, though. (If anyone knows how to do the equivalent of tootctl --confirmed via the API, that would be awesome!)
