The StatusCake monitoring for ttw was paused again -- I hate picking on software services but like ... it has _one_ job, and pausing an uptime check without notifying anyone makes it almost useless. I need an uptime monitoring service monitoring service.
I'm DTA -- down to #admin -- Going to relocate our compute stuff from Paris to well .. Ottawa for now, and maybe pay for some uptime monitoring as I am currently getting what I pay for (nothing).
There might be some downtime. 🐿
We're now running out my basement. People's home feed are rebuilding on a new, empty Redis. The old one had its Sidekiq queue drained; apart from the home feed thing this should be a seamless cut over and way faster than it's been since Friday.
We are still sending HTTP from France to Canada, which is not ideal. So, I'll look at getting a VM in North America to be our proxy in order to avoid these oceanic voyages.
Aaand now a DigitalOcean droplet in Toronto is providing us with a stable IP address and fronting the whole show (and autorenewing TLS certs, hopefully).
Those of us in North America should have the best ttw experience so far. My European friends: sorry, but also the server should be broken less often so that's also nice. ❤️
And we're done again. Let's all agree to leave things alone for a little bit
