Yeah yeah, you may have a dedicated server, but I have a dedicated serval

Have you checked out any of the federated social networks, like Mastodon?


 


 
Condolences to the person running mastodon.rocks (which lost its database). I know that sinking feeling as you realize that something went wrong.

Let it be a serious reminder to everyone to have regular backups.

I've lost an entire VPS to Scaleway once, it wasn't even anything I did, their hardware just failed. Not having backups is living on the edge.


 
My results shooting a roll of Cinestill 800 have been mixed:

I'm not sure if the weird color flares on some images are my fault due to static, due to a development issue, or an issue with the original (from Cinestill) film.

Suggestion: when you're building a user database, assign each user a 16-digit hexadecimal number as a unique identifier, disallow that internal identifier from changing, and let everything else change.

Want to change your username? Great. Want to change your email? Fine. The unique hex ID is all that matters.

16 hex digits is enough collision space to give every person on earth about 2.5 /million/ accounts on your system, but short enough that you can write it down on a post-it note.
