I may need to shutdown the squid.cafe instance so I can migrate it to a new system where more storage is available. A notice will be posted here before that happens.

Sorry about the downtime, y'all. Cronjob had a typo and the disk filled up. Kid's been in hospital, so I wasn't aware until now.

If you haven't gotten your flu shot, get it. You're not only protecting yourself, but others like my kid.

Upgrade's complete. Apologies for the delay.

Issues with the upgrade. I'm trying to fix ASAP.

Time for an upgrade! (Way past due.)

🦑 ☕️ Squid Cafe

🦑☕

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830

This is Squid Café, a special (to me) Mastodon instance.

It is not focused on any particular niche interest, however, I am a fountain pen user/collector, hence the semi-related "squid" name. (Squid. Ink. Get it?) Also... Cephalopods. Analog/digital photography, science. It’s all good. Everyone is welcome as long as you follow the code of conduct.

Bow to your cephalopod overloards!
