...I mean, how long before our luck runs out? All things considered I don't think I want to tempt fate and risk being done in by "a really bad cold".
@Azure thatis true, though I also grew up in a time when most enclosed public spaces were filled with varying degrees of cigarette smoke which wasn't always something we could opt out of.
These people protesting pandemic measures remind me of the "smokers' rights" groups of the past who figured breathing clean air was a privilege of others that shouldn't impede on their right to recreationally poison themselves.
@msh Great question. I just don't know. This past week in this city has been awful with people being idiots due to the nice weather and other factors. I'm worried, but to be frank the essential services that I provide have made me angry and bitter.
I just don't know...
@msh Hi Mark. in case this helps: a couple of times this past week a :mastothingy: has rendered in plain text on my toots, not as a graphic. Running latest firefox on macos.
@msh Also, FWIW, Notifications have returned to my browser in recent days. Or maybe it has been fine all along and I'm broken. Well, clearly I'm broken, but... well, never mind.
There was some index corruption on my database, probably due to the now-sunk docker playing flappy Bird with my containers last month. I cleaned up the problem and notifications started working again.
I helped another instance admin fix their database too. A similar fix helped their broken emojis, so I will check out mine now too.
Thanks for letting me know. Sometimes issues don't affect all users the same way.
@puzzled @ink_slinger I decided to check all the indexes of my database and found a number of similar issues with un-enforced constraints causing duplicates that shouldn't exist. They've all been corrected and glitches involving emojis, preview cards, conversation threads etc. seem to have resolved themselves.
And things seem a bit snappier too but that might just be me
@puzzled @msh Thank you, I greatly appreciate it! Luckily, I'm almost always wearing gloves, washing my hands and we sanitize most surfaces every four hours at least. We force people to stand in squares too and whatnot, but often get told off back.
I'll honestly likely be fine no matter the outcome, but our hundreds of customers who need their trademarked frozen soda beverages, I worry about.
