@nelson @snarfed.org hah, on second thought, i don't even bother syndicating posts there either. guess i should start.

@nelson 😆 thanks! feel free to unfollow this account to avoid spam if you want. real posts are over on @snarfed.org.

“It’s about doing the one little thing you can do, even if it’s useless: planting seeds in the midst of the apocalypse, spitting on a wildfire, bailing out the ocean with a bucket. Individual action is almost always pointless. Hope and strength comes from our bonds with each other, from the actions we take as a community, holding hands in the dark.” festive.ninja/one-atom-of-just

@ashfurrow hi! just a heads up, i may have discovered a bug: searching for "@xyz" (include double quotes) 500s. can replace xyz with anything; doesn't need to be an existing user.

i don't know if this is a misconfiguration, or a bug in your fork, or in upstream, or just transient, so i figured i'd nudge you before i filed a github issue anywhere.

thanks for running this instance! :hugops:

@fluffy @ben @beesbuzz.biz nope, no recent bridgy fed changes. it definitely does make the fediverse think your site is an activitypub/mastodon instance, which will trigger requests like these, but that’s always been true. more details: github.com/snarfed/bridgy-fed/

@mdbraber good find! it's actually been just ~$800/yr for the last couple years, and current run rate is down to ~$450/yr.

regardless, if you run it yourself for just your own accounts, it should fit entirely within app engine's free tier. you'd need a few config tweaks, specifically reverting github.com/snarfed/bridgy/comm . background in github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issu

@mdbraber @aaronpk definitely doable! a couple people have done it before. most of the work will be generating the silo API app credentials you need and putting them into the right files in your local repo: github.com/snarfed/oauth-dropi . then just sign up for google cloud, create an app engine app, and deploy!
