Ok migration done! It was easier than expected 😀.
So I moved from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 using a new machine. I use docker so I didn't have to rebuild the database, I just copied the files over.
- It took ~1 hour of work.
- In roughly 2 weeks that I've been in Mastodon, my instance has accumulated ~932MB of media and ~19MB database.
- I have not noticed the "downtime" at all, If anyone talked to me or something let me know, but I don't think it happened.
Well I am going to migrate my instance from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04, so it may be down for a while, or something weird may happen.
But since it's fun, feel free to interact with me anyways, just to see what happens :P Keep in mind I may not receive it though.
@Gargron Hey I just heard the changelog podcast where you talk about Mastodon. I feel like I get a better grasp of the community now, but when you talk about what instances are and how they are centered about a "community" or "interests", you did not mention instances of one and what part they play on the ecosystem. Is that because that use-case doesn't happen a lot? Or what do you think about them?

Lately when I read or hear a statement from a company including the word "nuanced", whatever follows is bullshit.
Why do most APIs from big companies have congruency issues? I would think the bigger a company is, the most important having a solid data model is.

I executed `sudo chown noel:noel / -R` by mistake some months ago (instead of `sudo chown noel:noel ./ -R`) and I still haven't formatted my computer. Since then, weird stuff happens every now and then, but at this point I'm just letting it be out of curiosity 🤷
