which you know probably doesn't matter we'll have bigger apocalyptic issues to deal with but it should be easier to run your own fediverse server cheaper/leaner. Pleroma is better for that right now.

@adam "just use one of the giant instances managed by someone else" but isn't the whole point of this federated thing that we can control our own destiny? What are the chances half of these Mastodon instances are running in 10 years?

@adam and I know you're all like "just rent another VPS and use Docker and whatever it's fine nobody understands how software works" to which I say "if I can't set it up with some simple shell scripts and understand what the hell is going on I don't want it running on a box I'm responsible for" and also "get off my lawn I'm old, ok?!"


Pleroma's stack is simple (elixir/postgres) and has tiny resource needs so running it on my OpenBSD box with the rest of my miscellanous stuff is fine. Probably.

Running a whole extra ubuntu server for a single user mastodon instance seems like overkill. But the stack is so complicated and the resource usage so high I don't want to put it on a box with anything else!

I'm going to shut this server down soon and switch to my pleroma server on vllm.net where I'll continue not actually fediversing as @adam


First Christmastime for the Jews I've had in a few years and it's so good, I really missed it.

Making a list of winter break things and it’s all like 90% binge watch shows I missed and eat things

Do you like your domain registrar? Who do you use? *taps mic* Is this thing even on?

I want to buy a new domain name but it’s just reminding me I pay too much for domains at name.com and I need to move everything but that seems like work

“How can we make it feel like the kind of place that has books?”

“Put books there?”

“No, no. That’s absurd, Without actually having any books.”

What’s the technical term of pastiche Anthropologie aesthetic in corporate contexts?

Sadthropologie? Corpthropologie?

also pleroma comes with a gopher server built in as a joke but also it works so that's funny too
