If you are a :tchncs: :matrix: user and cannot login after the maintenance:
A few people seem to have clients that really liked the old machine and still cache the old IP. Try logging out and in again, clearing cache, restarting the client or device. If you are affected, you currently receive the error code 502.

for the veloren server and things like maintenances, i have decided to bring forum.tchncs.de back to life. :tchncs:

welcome to the new host :tchncs: - woke up early and started maintenance 4am 馃挭

if not interrupted/disturbed, i will put this instance down for db maintenance (to maintain its happiness) and migration to a new host (to ensure the instance stays snappy) - around 8am CET, Jan 12.
See also: status.tchncs.de

i slowly should move mastodon to that new host... it seems that almost no timewindow is really nice for it based on user activity, but i need to do a maintenance on the database as well:
we previously had some errors due to duplicates in the db which have been resolved by hand. the new mastodon release brings a tool that can scan the database for leftovers... for a healthy migration and future.
i think i will do it tomorrow morning. :tchncs:

okey, now testing 480p and 720p transcoding for livestreams at tube.tchncs.de.
