Hachyderm is on ZFS, a Copy-On-Write file system.

Are you familiar with Copy-On-Write (COW) file systems?

Historically, file systems would modify data in place, destroying the old data.

COW file systems always write to a new location and keep track of what's changed as metadata. Written data is immutable, though it can be garbage-collected. This means more aggressive caching, easier snapshotting, integrity checking, and easier to implement correctly. It's also easier to distribute.

I am so sorry everyone!!! 🙇

A mistake was made, photos were lost, a system was rebuilt, photos were not regained, but we're back online!

A few things: most of your profile photos will need to be re-uploaded. Photos cannot be regenerated, so older posts with photos will show a broken image.

Lessons were learned, and we'll make sure to provide a good post-mortem soon! We'll also make sure to build up a more robust backup solution as we progress.

Good news: Learning way too much about operating Mastodon at scale.

Bad news: I am now developing opinions. We have a lot of work to do. I am excited to contribute to the project.

Tech bros repeating the meeting back to each other in their own words.

Would it be inappropriate for me to talk about founding a startup here? I feel a bit like corporate content is something we are trying to get away from.

I did it. I removed all politics from my timeline and it's now all cats

I am wondering how far my reach is on Mastodon? Are folks from other servers randomly seeing my posts in their federated timelines? What about co-follows? Will you see my toots if somebody you follow, also follows me?

I am still confused on the rules of engagement here.

@nova i just got here too, and what a moment. CW has saved my blood pressure

@nova already feeling more at home here than I did on birdsite in 13 years.

How is everyone feeling about Mastodon so far?

I am really fond of the content warning features and how its substantially more personal than Twitter.


Blocked by the DoD. How is your Tuesday going?

Goodnight awesome people. You all did fucking amazing today. Good job. You deserve it.

For the longest time my Twitter account ( has been permanently flagged as sensitive content by Twitter. Almost 2 years of asking for help and they continue to blatantly ignore me.

Anyway -- In a past life I used to be fond of posting selfies online before they started coming with "THIS IS SENSITIVE CONTENT" warnings. The warnings triggered me for transgender trauma reasons.

Anyway if I started posting selfies here on Hachyderm again -- would you all be interested?

I am also realizing that its my duty to provide you all with up-to-the-minute thoughts on my stupid open source projects.

Talking with a colleague this morning and I’m realising we are going to need to build an eBPF probe to search for eBPF probes with xpid 🤓
