At first I thought WordPress had another security bug but this time it's hacked sites running something bad in the themes. A key logger and Bitcoin miner as the payload.

Why themes? These are usually updated via the website so are writable by the web server process. Often the core WordPress code is not.

Hrm. Did #mastodon 2.0.0 have a memory leak somewhere? Just noticed the linear growth in the committed memory graph of my mastodon instance for the previous week (now upgraded to 2.1.0rc).
Ok, could have been redis or postgres too, but I don't remember any recent changes with those, and memory usage dropped immediately as I restarted the services for the upgrade.

This really is a great book, anyone who does any sort of programming should read it. It's not very long but really gives you an understanding of the fundamentals of C.

Spent a good 5 hours trying to get Mastodon up and running on a dedicated (clean) server. Tried the standalone approach. Tried the docker approach. Tried on Debian. Tried on Ubuntu 16.04.

Ah, well. Giving up for the day. Might need to enlist some assistance in figuring out where I might have gone wrong (or of I'm justing hitting a known issue).

Would be cool to have a self-hosted instance for me and my community... if I can figure out how. :)

I have Internet! I can get back to my and stuff now

Thought I would try something different tonight. Egg and pumpkin stir-fry was pretty good. Think it become a regular meal.

Probably should have taken a photo before I ate it!
