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!

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 haven't had a whole lot of time to hang around the fediverse lately (other than ensuring this instance and @sotd both keep from imploding), but hopefully I'll have some cool stuff coming up. (And some games to give away)

Cleaning up a customer's PC, I made the mistake of leaving a tab open on Yahoo's home page. Only 1 minute later: malvertized. Sunuva...
I did it again to pin down the cause, & indeed it's Yahoo's ads breaking out, taking over the page, & loading scary messages that make it difficult to leave.
I can't stress enough, folks, that an ad blocker is Internet SECURITY software.
