Large account migration, potential for service impact

We’re welcoming Tim Bray to the CoSocial Mastodon server today. He’s written a blog post talking about the move and what we’re doing here. Tim has quite a large following, so we expect some server load as part of him moving his account.

Things might be slow or unresponsive starting at 5PM PST, and we may even have a server outage. You can follow this post to find out current status.

This is the first TechOps status post. We’ll use this blog and messages like this to give updates about technical infrastructure, especially in case of downtime.
