Just paid €16 Cyprus customs on a package from the US. It's value? €0, a patch for being a disaster response supporter. But because shipping was €25, they charged the minimum import fee. #thatsfucked
If you TRULY think, that #PatientsAreNotFaking I implore you to work a week as support in an ER and take the job of telling sick people that they'll have to wait another hour because "compassionate care" applies to everyone, and STEMI or needing a day off, you're same in line.
Hey guys, we're moving the move (pun, pun) of mastodon.bayern by one or two weeks. Today's pre-move testing revealed, that we have shitty connectiity between the old and new host, owing to an outage at the DECIX. This would make the rsync take ~8 hours and we're not sure if we can get everything over inside the window.
They don't test well... https://write.as/jevuqgab2d8qhz1a.md

IMPORTANT NOTICE: On November 15, around 8pm GMT we'll take down mastodon.bayern to move from Digital Ocean to a better host (longer explanation in a post on write.as as soon as we're done). The migration itself might take between 3 and 6 hours, followed by DNS propagation delays. We're setting TTL for mastodon.bayern very low, but can't guarantee that your DNS server or upstream DHCP DNS relay will catch up quickly.
