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

@ebeth @crecerelle hello, I use @joshuatj more. What exactly do you want to know?

@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 @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!

@joshuatj 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 @joshuatj

Digitization is the not panacea though.

"Why isn't library science in Brazil at a place where digitizing existing materials is as important as going out and collecting stuff?”
