My Curious Cat crossposter is up and running! You can sign up here: cg.lynnesbian.space/

Once you've created your account and set everything up, anything you post to your Curious Cat will automatically be crossposted to your Mastodon account! :blobcathappy:

feedback is super duper appreciated! if there are any bugs or improvements you'd like or anything, don't hesitate to let me know! 0u0

i'm so sorry for all the technical issues, i've never done anything like this before!

i probably shouldn't have published this at 00:15, huh

i added more worker threads and it seems like things aren't dying constantly now

oh btw it should work for pleroma too but i haven't tested it

@lynnesbian Why does it require me to both log in with mastodon *and* create a local account? You'd think one of the two would be enough

@embr yeah i guess so. i can't remember why i chose this but i did

@lynnesbian now it's 502ing trying to connect to a curiouscat account :(

@embr aaa i'm so sorry i thought it would work right off the bat
try going to /home and redoing the connection process

@embr just checked the database and it looks like it went through successfully actually

@lynnesbian I think the link to the code is missing the "lynnesbian" before the repo :)

@lynnesbian I'm getting a 500 error "The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application."

@lynnesbian upon retry, i'm only getting it with octodon. Knzk and mastodon.social work fine

@realmaxkeeble huh weird. that must be an error with octodon, then... idk

@lynnesbian if you need a hand hmu, I'm quite well versed in bending servers to my will :P

@lynnesbian nobody in the history of computers has ever launched something that worked perfectly on day one

I do this shit for a living, launch days are *always* "hotfix all the bugs you never saw in staging" days

and that's with people who've done this before, *everyone's* first application crashes horribly right away

@embr @lynnesbian yeah, I do this shit for a living, for money, and 25% percent of my time is just live-hacking craptastic code that was deployed

@embr @lynnesbian Atlassian has a free t shirt for you: I bought thousands of dollars worth of bug tracking software and all I got was this t-shirt

@lynnesbian Oh, and: the real world is fucking weird.

I work for a bank. The last "big" project I was a part of launching had a bug where you just, couldn't buy anything from this one, random Japanese tour guide. I was late at the office the last day of the beta, before it rolled out to everyone in the morning, trying to fix that.

It turns out this *one website* ran software that rejected all messages that didn't put the fields in the *exact order they're listed in the protocol specification*.

@lynnesbian Oh and I got there in the morning, after *months* of testing to try to stamp out bugs before we switched everyone onto it.

The moment we hit ship, a bunch of shit broke, because computers are extremely bad.

@lynnesbian anything similar for retrospring? I don't use any Q and A sites like that, but I've seen both Curious Cat and Retrospring being used on fediverse

@lynnesbian the ability to manually go up and down by a single number is really really tempting me to waste my god damn time going up by like every single number

@lynnesbian

Two questions:

1. would it have worked if I entered lubar.me instead of mastodon.lubar.me

2. if so, can you fix it on your end

@lynnesbian How about this: delete my curious greg account and I'll try remaking it as @ben.

Time to dissect your code and see if I can fix it from my end...

@lynnesbian ok, two things:

1. /.well-known/host-meta and all that

2. the "uri" field of mastodon.lubar.me/api/v1/insta gives the preferred domain for accounts hosted on that instance.

@lynnesbian

it, uh, takes longer to error out now

so that's nice I guess

@ben okay yeah you can't do the thing you're doing, you gotta do it the other way

@lynnesbian

me: approves app

app: please create a passwor<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
