Sorry for the lengthy downtime.

We had an hardware issue with the new server at a very inopportune time 😨

For now I migrated the Lemmy instance back to the old server, but it looks like I will have to revise that new server a bit (again...). At least the old server is going strong so fingers crossed.

No worries, I just browsed as [anonymous] for a few hours. Appreciate the effort y'all put into our little solarpunk corner of the internet😊

Worthy of note, XMPP chat stayed up and moderators were able to see updates as the repairs took place. Thanks for setting that up, @poVoq - it's working well.

Joining XMPP chat is easy - https://movim.slrpnk.net and login with your SLRPNK username and password.

Hey, I tried to login but got the message:

Movim failed to authenticate. You entered wrong data

I have a pretty long password - could that be it? If this is the wrong place to mention this, let me know :)

I'll work on fixing some current issues with Movim today. Maybe try again tomorrow. If it still doesn't work, please contact me by DM to troubleshoot it.

Just thanks for keeping it all going! If I was worried about five nines of uptime I'd probably be hanging out on corporate sites.

In fact I'm kind of fascinated by low tech magazine and their deliberate acceptance of downtime. And the argument I've seen somewhere (maybe there) that a lot of the waste is in pushing those last few percents rather than accepting that websites go down sometimes. I know that's not related to the issues here but it's interesting to think about.

Thanks again for all your hard work maintaining this place for us
