Looking for connections who know a thing or two (or even more than two things) about doing an MA in Archiving.

If this is you, can I ask you a few questions?

If this is not you, please could you signal boost?

@crecerelle @ebeth a good place to start is to attend a conference. Any particular field in archiving?

@hugh yes. I believe the latest documentation for setup includes a setup cron job step. Our instance was so old, didn't have that.

@hugh I think it means you can run it without the RAILS_ENV part. Try running tootctl and see what happens

@hugh there's something about running it in production environment, so RAILS_ENV=production bin/tootctl might be necessary

@hugh is your instance docker or not? I used tootctl media remove seems to do the trick. @andrewjbtw not necessary, figured out a way to purge old media. All is good.

@andrewjbtw it was, and it's up again. We are running out of space over there and I'm trying to figure a way to clear old media

I decided to finally give a certain well-known library resource a try. One of those things that lots of libraries offer and I've been meaning to try anyway.

Great. Sign up, sign in, pick my topic, let's get started!

"You need to install Adobe Flash Player."


Shit. UPDATE: The upgrade and migration worked seamlessly 🎉. We're now at the latest stable release 2.7.2 and hosted by Toot 🍍 me if you notice any issues.

Thank you @mastohost

@platypus yeapppp, was just about to announce to the world! Haha

Hello fellow tooters, we are conducting some long overdue instance upgrading and server migration in a day or two. Expect some intermittent downtime.

If there's anything urgent, toot me at my account

Show older Mastodon is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles.
