Hey all! Looks like the rsync job is taking _way_ longer than expected. So, for today, I'll mostly focus on migrating our instance over to the new droplet. Depending on when the rsync job is finished, I might be able to just swap over to Spaces once it's done.

Hope you're having a fantastic day so far! :D

Merveilles meta, planned downtime 

If everything gets copied over and the new droplet looks good—I'll have to change the remote git repo to pull from our Merveilles repo with our customizations—the next steps would be:

1. Take down the old droplet,
2. Do one last rsync for assets & copy over the DB to make sure things are up to date,
3. Point the DNS for the domain to the new server!

Looking through the docs of various sources, I think I have a better plan put together for later today.

If things go well, we'll be migrating to a new server with assets being served from Spaces—I'm testing that out now, and I'll do a dry run in the morning before swapping over.

Right now I'm removing old remote assets and soon, I'll be cloning over the assets (with rclone) from S3 > Spaces. Then, I'll copy over the config & DB and see if things look the same! :D

So, my new netlabel is up and there's already a release on it, it's an EP I made with @neauoire's Orca esoteric language.
It has two sides, a techno one and a glitch one.

Enjoy, it's in NYP, so you can grab it for free or give a little donation !

Hey Merveilles! I'm going to give migrating the assets another go this upcoming Sunday, March 22, from 12:00 to 20:00 PDT.

I'm going to do some prework the day before to make sure I can migrate over everything smoothly, but I still want to give myself a wide swath of time to make sure I can move everything over properly.

Thanks a bunch y'all! :3

Hey all, we're back, and I wasn't able to do any of the upgrades due to some pretty frustrating errors I found when upgrading the Ubuntu version—plus I wasn't able to see the updated Space I created. Apologies. I'm going to have to change my strategy for updating like this and I'll try again at a later date.

Okay all, time to upgrade the instance for! You'll see some downtime from now until 6pm PST at the latest. Cheers, and I'll see you all on the other side! Financials, February 2020
