F*** it, I'm doing this - I'm setting up the instance. Wish me luck. At worst, it's 500 SEK in the toilet for the domain name if I fail.
After careful consideration, I've decided that my instance for #Python developers will be based on Pleroma rather than Mastodon. But, as I've learned, Pleroma is part of the Fediverse too, has an interface similar to that of Mastodon, and works with Mastodon smartphone clients. So people who are used to Mastodon should have no technical problems joining my instance once it's up.
@enfors Good luck!
@bjonte Thanks! Waiting for DNS propagation takes forever, I was hoping I'd be able to get this working today, but apparently not...
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
