At the moment the Mastodon instance at indieweb.social is struggling to keep up with the network surge. I still have my own site here however where I am writing this post on. Chugging along the stream - Don't forget that using your own site for posting to Mastodon and the Fediverse is totally fine and actually promoted. It's called

Sites like Instagram and Reddit, which are hiding content after teasing access to the content a bit, are really only doing it for the monetization of your content and your profile data. Post on Mastodon or on your own website and you decide yourself who gets to see your contributions.

Tried installing Mastodon on the Yunohost server on a Raspberry Pi 3. Turns out it does not have enough RAM. Installation aborted itself, left a nice clear log message and then uninstalled everything nicely. That is what is really awesome about Yunohost.

In the process of moving my OpenPGP based keys and claims - which started on Keybase.io - to Keyoxide.org. It is unclear what will happen to Keybase any given moment since Zoom bought it, so I wanted to be prepared. Even-though Keyoxide has less features, the base principle of confirming ones online identities with public key pairs remains. And it seems that most special Keybase features can be replaced with other services, like Mastodon and such.

Reminds me I need to send some moneys to Tim for keeping my Mastodon instance up over at https://indieweb.social.

Johan Bové

Thanks for the info and insightful stats. About the rising costs; I would personally be fine with sending brid.gy a modest monthly support for keeping the service going, especially as I totally rely on it for my publications to Twitter and Mastodon. Any way you think is cool?

Trying this from my Known site. But it seems to fail. Not sure what is going on.
