Do you want to run your own Fediverse instance, but don't want to do the tech stuff?

✅ Managed hosting services let you create your own instances without technical knowledge. They handle the tech stuff behind the scenes, you do the rest.

Some hosts for Mastodon, PixelFed & PeerTube include:

:mastodon: masto.host

:mastodon: :pixelfed: :peertube: app.spacebear.ee

:mastodon: hostdon.jp (in Japanese)

Are there any anarchist collectives offering hosting for things like mastodon and email?

I did it :flan_XD:

I wrote a simple #Gemini server using #openbsd pledge/unveil

Took me 2 hours but I'm really a C noob :flan_despair: I learned a lot though!

Because I am REALLY lazy, I delegated TLS to proper tools instead of managing it myself.

My server is simply using STDIN and STDOUT! :flan_smile:

You can learn more about it on gemini://perso.pw/

So disappointed in Mozilla recently. Their response to the Google antitrust case was unforgivable, in my opinion.

I worked for the Foundation 2012-15, having mostly an incredible time with super-talented people.

However, in the last five years, and especially since Mitchell Baker took over as CEO of the Corporation again, Mozilla has lost its way. I was talking to someone who left there earlier this year who said it's turned into a kind of 'court' with those in favour and those not 😕

#Foak - What are your favorite peertube channels?

Who are your favorite pixelfed posters?

What do you call a musician who uploads their own music to Funkwhale and where can I find six?

If you want to make your own website, for free, message me. I'll help you get it online, I'll help you find places to host it. I'll help it live forever.

If you have media you produced and you need help archiving or documenting it, I'll probably help with that too (time permitting, but it probably will.)

If you want to help build a thing that will serve as a viable community alternative to youtube, and might outlive it, HMU.

does anyone have recommendations for how they downsize or optimize images on their wiki/site? i'd like to run all images through a downscaling and maybe dithering script before linking? not sure what other people do / use, and while i'm tempted to write my own approach, i wanna learn more first
