Hey there! I run this instance because I love the idea of the Fediverse, and want to provide a space for people to be themselves, and share their ideas and work.

If you'd like to help me out with the cost of running this instance, it's appreciated, but by no means required. Here are some options if you still wish to contribute!

Donate via Ko-Fi:

Rent a VPS from Vultr using my affiliate link:

Or a VPS from DigitalOcean:

So, a little detail about the setup, for later:

* Running on a tiny VPS right now. (1GB RAM)
* Media is uploaded to Wasabi, and served via BunnyCDN to help with worldwide latency (using the Volume Tier POPs)
* This was fun to set up. :)

Hello! I'm Caff/Caffeinewriter/Brandon! I'm the creator of this instance. I'm a programmer, I play video games, sometimes while people watch, and I like to do new and exciting things.

I also apologize for slacking on approving invites, but welcome @aardvark, @Liberonscien, @DarkArmy and @ikhen.

Sorry I've been absent for so long! Hopefully the instance has been chugging along well in my absence.

Sysadmins: "It's secure because it's in a container"


Thanks to all those who reported a rather toxic user on here! They deleted their account before I had a chance to suspend them myself, and I apologize it took so much time to take care of that. Please keep on reporting, and feel free to message me directly if you see anything that needs to be taken care of. Any DMs will be 100% private. Thanks again!

Hopefully my decision to dockerize Mastodon will help me, not hurt me in the end.

So my new server's ready to go. I just need to find the time to actually plan the migration here. I'll announce it via @status when I do.

I have officially gotten re-obsessed with Pokémon Go. If you wanna add me, my friend code is 6593 0217 9087 ^^

Man, I'm suddenly wanting to watch Code: Lyoko again. It's been a loooooong time. Sadly, I can't find anywhere to purchase it digitally, (there's some rights snafu due to MoonScoop being taken over IIRC)
and I need to set up a NAS or something so getting it on DVDs is more feasible.

Welcome to the instance @thanosthanos! I hope you enjoy your time here!

Okay, Bonding on Netflix is so damn good.

I just wanna share this article that's amazing, and insane. Running GUI apps in Docker by mounting X11 sockets. I have Jessie Frazelle to thank for getting me interested in containers. Her writings and talks are always A++

Any folks knowledgable with pleroma able to help me figure this out? (boosts accepted)

Fresh install of pleroma. Seems to be working fine except for the MastodonFE component
Clicking on the Masto FE link results in the behaviour shown in the screenshot.
