A quick clarification about the instances list I posted yesterday: it is not a list of dead instances, my bad. As @loke pointed out, mastodon.sdf.org/ is alive and well.

The process I started on monday was checking all remote accounts of this instance (about 115k). These accounts are followed by or follow one or more accounts of .

The remote account can be unreachable for different reasons: the instance is down, the ssl certificate of the instance is no longer valid or the remote user doesn't exist anymore.

At the end the process (tootclt accounts cull[1]) spits out a list of all the instances involved.

You guys have no idea about how many Mastodon instanced died these years... 🤦‍♂️

Hi . To ease the migration to Pleroma, I'm going to do a little maintenance, so the instance will be down for a bit, starting from 8.30 am UTC.

Thanks for your patience.

Sorry guys, I have to postpone the migration to Pleroma due to a lack of time (too much work related stuff).

I'm planning to migrate on my holidays in a couple of week. Of course, I'm going to make an announce probably one or two days before the actual migration.

Thanks, Marco.

Mastodon -> Pleroma 

Ok, so the poll is closed, looks like we are going to migrate to Pleroma.

I'm going to make a couple of tests this weekend and probably we are going to do the actual migration on 01-02/08.

I'm always open to discuss this matter, but I think the choice is made.
Hope we'll all gain from this change.

This is a course on the foundations of computational linguistics, using :
From what I can see from a quick glance from the table of content, it contains a lot of stuff, from formal languages over bag-of-word approaches to Markov chains, but is not addressing more high-level aspects of CL, like semantics or discourse.

Mastodon -> Pleroma 

I'm going to recreate the poll, since it looks like users from outside the instance can vote it too and it will "poison" the result... Sorry about that.

Mastodon -> Pleroma 

Ah, I keep forgetting, if you want to give Pleroma a try, there's p.functional.cafe/ available.

Mastodon -> Pleroma 

I know I already bring this up before, but here I ask again: would be an issue for you guys to migrate from Mastodon to Pleroma?

Mastodon is really heavy, has a complex structure (3 different mastodon services, 1 postgresql, 1 redis) and somehow "castrated" by default, forcing to switch to a fork of it (glitch-soc, which works but of course have a "use at your own risk" disclaim) and sometimes it's a real PITA to update.

Actually, has 463 users registered, but only about 15-20% of them are active.

Now, an eventual migration to Pleroma will take some times, probably a day but you will keep your toots and your followers.
(see gitlab.com/soapbox-pub/migrato).

I'm going to make another poll on another toot for this decision, but I really hope to make the switch. It will means less maintenance, less downtime, less issues thanks to a minor complexity...

Let me know your thoughts.

Ok, updated to 3.1.5+Glitch, let me know if you have any issue.
Enjoy!

Hello fellow users of . Today I'm going to update our instance with the latest Glitch release (for those who doesn't know we are running a fork of the offical Mastodon).

There will be some downtime, so be patient. Thank you all for the collaboration.

I want to apologize for the instance issues yesterday, I'm busy, tired and stoopid: a lethal combination.

I don't know how, I broke the certificate renewal and that was the result. Won't happen again.

Thanks you all, especially: @spectrumgomas, @minoru and @JK008
