You can give your site “taglines”, short markdown messages, which are shown at the top of your front page.

What is considered the Front Page?





I think I searched for “open source reddit” and Lemmy was one of the search results. Joined lemmy.ml, and then a year or so later started my own instance.








This one I use daily: https://www.logitech.com/en-us/products/mice/mx-vertical-ergonomic-mouse.910-005447.html

You can keep the usb connector attached and use it that way if you want to avoid bluetooth.





You da real mvp! Thanks for contributing to my instance!

They’re fucking annoying. The fact that someone would put effort into becoming an influencer is cringe.



She’s pretty young. Under 8 years old. We think she got soap or something on her from sitting in the sink and that’s what caused it.


Somehow, this shorthair cat got a lump of fur tangled up on her back. My mom finally managed to remove it.

I know that logs take a good amount of storage on Lemmy servers. For example, my database is only ~1.9 GB but I’m using about 25 GB total space because I haven’t truncated my logs in a while. You do have a much more populated server than mine though.

Here is the link to the privatebin that contains the site's longest running queries of today. Take a look at it and see if you can find anything out of the ordinary. Thanks!

Awesome! I tried to do this awhile back and the article was rejected because not enough news sources had written about it.


I’ve stuck with the blue lo-carb one. Tastes about the same as the green but with way less calories.




Hmm, I’m just running it on Android and updated this morning. Works fine for me.



Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!
Hope you are safe and warm and surrounded by friends and family.

The high CPU issue that is causing midwest.social to slow way down and timeout on HTTP requests is still a mystery to me. But, it seems to do it less often and for less time now. Here is CPU usage over 24 hours: ![](https://midwest.social/pictrs/image/6d9927c9-1c88-4321-b2f9-b533ea867921.png) It's a bunch of SELECT statements in Postgres that all seem to fire at one time and take a while to complete as a batch. I've inspected the logs and haven't seen anything unusual. Just stuff federating and posts receiving upvotes.
