linux, why isn't this the default 

# grep ^UID_MIN /etc/login.defs
UID_MIN 1024

i had been playing about with it locally for about a week but going from no server and a domain to a "working" mastodon instance in a night isn't too shabby

is . (full stop/period) a valid character in fedi usernames?

basically the big thing i need to test before going live is upgrading the mastodon version

oh and setting up backups :notlikeblob:

hmm 2gb ram might be enough to run one instance, but not two...

oh but i am using a lot of cloud services to host this particular test instance...

ouch i just realised is £25pa renewal. can't be buying too many of those is only £17py

i guess i'm keeping my new laptop as i've had it for 15 days so i can't return it
