One nice (?) Side effect of messing up my mastodon install so much is that I know its database structure quite well now lol... OTL.

@galacticstone I made a mistake on my mastodon server and wiped my follows/followers OTL. Just a heads up. You might need to refollow me for me to show up again. Sorry!

This is, funnily enough, the second time I've wiped my follows/followers. The first time was from a bad database migration shortly after I joined the fediverse.

I have daily backups going back a month. I tried importing my old data, but it doesn't work because of how mastodon communicates follows/followers.

Looks like the issue for me was self-inflicted. I forgot to account for follows/followers when culling old accounts. Fixed now.

I haven't done anything to the server. Weird.

I have just noticed that I somehow lost everyone I've followed for some reason.

Practice gouache painting done over the weekend of a pink flamingo. Like my practice pieces lately the subject was chosen at random.

New practice piece. Random subject, random color palette. Subject is a coyote, painted digitally from a random photo on the internet using a color palette generated from colormind.io.

So went to the grocery store, and as I was walking to the front door I saw someone had dropped some eggs in the parking lot. As I walked by this one I could hear it sizzling. If you've never seen what an egg frying on concrete looks like this is it. lol

When is it going to be normal to refer to this as surveillance technology?
