me. it’s me. I’m the one.
Howdy everyone! Here’s a public summary of my activity this week ending September 29, 2023 and reminders about some things upcoming!
Pretty much this whole week the main library site server has been slammed. From the outside, it probably looks like a DDoS attack, but, checking the logs, everything seems normal, just, I guess, the server is suddenly overworked and underpowered. I don’t remember if I mentioned it, but this is similar to what happened a while ago (a month, or two?), but then it was a ton of new bots (probably LLM companies thirsty AF for content to slurp up) hitting every page but not so much this time? Traffic seems organic to me from what I’ve seen. Well, either way, I’ve been working on it, probably won’t have things fully operational again until next week-ish, when I hope to have set up a bigger and better new server. Bummer, but these things happen; and, hey, new server incoming! What shall I name this one, eh? Oh, and this is just the main library site, not the blog and underground.
Although that issue took a lot of my time this week, I also worked on digital distribution of MMR5 (now available!) and MMR6 (up next!), along with adding Pandora and Tidal links to all the album pages where they exist. And other work on the site.
I’d also mentioned a few time that I was in conversation with R Loftiss (of Hermetic Library Anthology Artists Black Lesbian Fishermen, Karyæ, The Gray Field Recordings, and The Howling Larsons), and this week I’ve posted that to the blog.
Thank you for visiting and being a guest of Hermetic Library. You help me be of service and make the work of the library meaningful. Especial thanks to each and every ongoing Patron on Patreon, Subscriber at Bandcamp, and Member on Ko-Fi for making the work of the library possible!
