@climagic Thank you for doing this. Despite having lived in the shell for over 15 years, I'm amazed at all the stuff I can still learn.
I've been trying to search for a somewhat comprehensive guide on how to install #linux projects in one's $HOME directory, e.g. $HOME/usr, but all I can find is "install your stuff in /usr/local". I know about ./configure --prefix=... but I'm looking for all the things I'm missing, like ldconfig, pkgconfig and other stuff I don't know about. Is it really a #bestpractice / #goodidea to have to use #root for every random $binary you download/build from internet?
@bclindner I miss AVS (visualizations).
@Gargron I respectfully disagree. I like to follow "project updates" from various people on Mastodon. I rarely use it "in the moment", more like "weekly digests of things that interest me". But maybe I'm just misunderstanding this whole thing :)
@Gargron my Mastodon server had ~2 months of downtime (due to me not having time to care for it, stuck in Postgres migration), and I have a gap in my timeline. I could not find documentation about this - how does federation work exactly? Are toots federated only when instances are online? If so, is there a way to "backfill" the data? I can definitely see everything when I go to individual profiles.
I just migrated my Mastodon instance from "docker-compose internal" Postgres instance to a shared one running outside Docker on my machine (I do have more plans for Postgres). It took waaaaaaay longer than I anticipated (given what's happening in the world), and my account seems "stuck" in Feb. Let's see if this toot kicks the federation machinery to start federating again.
@hisham_hm Thank you for adding documentation! Always a welcome addition.
