in order to support growth and general continuation of the service, queer.party is going to be moving to a new server. not exactly sure when cause i'm still testing to make sure nothing's gonna break.
it will happen at some point this month and in the following stages:
* load-balancer migration (w/ internal redirect back)
* database migration (w/ removing redirect in load-balancer)
* CDN migration (expected to take longest. q.p will be up during this but media will be unavailable)
folks, load-balancer migration has been done for the CDN, and will be done for the main site shortly. Note that while we're transitioning from the old to new servers, traffic might be a little slower than usual (cause internally traffic is being routed from germany to france)
gonna start working on migrating the main mastodon stuff now folks. queer.party should, hopefully, only be down for around 30 minutes.
ok i significantly underestimated how big the database was and as a result queer.party was actually down for ~2 hours, but we're now running on the new servers! next to be migrated will be the content server, but not for a while (it's a big boi)
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
