It seems the server is catching up – our backlog is shrinking continuously, so the missing statuses should start to show up. I'll be offline for a short bit (shower), then a long bit (50 minutes way to work), so if against all odds things don't fix themselves, please be patient just a bit longer.
I investigated the current chaos.social problem and completed some dark rituals – if all goes well, we should be back into regular operations in a few hours – our server is currently hard at work playing catch-up with the rest of the fediverse. Please be patient, get some sleep/offline enjoyment, and check back in the morning.
Whelp, we see a still increasing amount of sidekiq tasks on chaos.social, we seem to be backlogged by about six hours. I can't see any reason for this – the tasks don't seem out of the ordinary, disk i/o is fine, … I'm not sure what is going on. Any ideas? #mastoadmin
This is a *very* good interview defining the term "emotional labor", with Prof. Hochschild, who introduced the term. It speaks to my feeling that the term is applied to scenarios it's not suited best for:
"It seems like this is mostly becoming a popular term in feminist conversations. But if we talk about all the unpaid labor women do in the home as “emotional labor,” we’re insinuating that any kind of labor that falls most often to a woman is “emotional.”"
