The drake.network domain name has been renewed and is secure for yet another year!

P.S.
I blurred out some of our company details to prevent cursory trolling :)

We've upgraded to both #Mastodon and #GlitchSoc v3.1.2! ^,==,^ 

Extenuated multimedia issues, software upgrades, and some minor downtime within the next few hours! 

With the advent of Coronavirus (i.e. COVID-19) onto the global stage, not much has changed at GekkoFyre Networks in terms of where and how our employees work from. Since everyone who works for our organization in a professional manner from a home office already, there has been little difference! UPDATE: Please read the addendum below!

Though that's not to say that our routin

I was just talking to a close friend about our new routines and how they could be improved, on both sides.

Currently, I have implemented measures to wipe down the following at the end of every day with (i.e. ):

What measures has everyone else implemented so far, if any?

We have finally fixed the / problem that has been plaguing The Drake Network for, what is, way too long at this point x..x

Today is a day wherein we reflect on the values we hold towards our users and clients. The purpose of Data Privacy Day is to raise awareness towards and promote best practices of both user privacy concerns and the way in which user data is safely/securely stored.

At GekkoFyre Networks, we take security of your private information very seriously. Listed below

#HamRadio power supply has been repaired! I'm also sick 😫 

That's the abomination of a filename for a SSL/VPN certificate that our instance tried to export.

Ooof x..x

There have been some major updates towards and around GekkoFyre Networks as of late, with some of them a direct result of the generosity of our donors, through both our Patreon account and via other means. We'll mention a few of these just below.

We are nearly ready to release the exclusive page here at GekkoFyre th

I'm hoping to fix the multimedia issues sometime in the next 24-hours, that have been plaguing The Drake Network the past few days or so.

It seems to be a permissions issue with regard to our S3 instance, from what I can understand. Should be an easy, albeit time consuming fix >,==,>

Attn. admins! Suggested user and federation block. 

The backup restoration has succeeded and once again, The Drake Network is online! We do apologize for the outage but out of this, we have been able to contribute to the greater Mastodon community by reporting a critical bug that occurs in the very latest versions. You may view our issue reports here and here.

Once this bug has been resolved by the Mastodon program

The Drake Network will be going offline later today (Australian EST, so rather soon) for a few hours as we perform desperately needed maintenance.

Currently, the database is located too far away from the virtual private server this instance is on itself after a migration to a newer, more powerful server some weeks ago.

We will be changing database servers as a result and lastly, be moving to a new S3 provider for our multimedia. Namely, ourselves at @gekkofyre! :D

As of late, we've created a rather large Ceph S3 object-based cluster that contains many tens of terabytes of data at its disposal with the intention that this will lower fees overall from providers such as , , and .

P.S.
We'll be enabling once again as well :)

We thank everyone for their understanding ^,==,^

We wish a Merry Christmas to all and family! Whether this be your natural family from birth or even your new, found family, as we at GekkoFyre do realize it can be quite a lonely time of year for some.

Please be on the lookout for those closest to you who might be a little down around this time, as they could require a little more attention than usual.

Not everyone gets to enjoy this sp

With the immense help of all our donors and as well as patrons from our Patreon, we've been able to add a brand new dedicated storage server to our lineup of assets!
