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.
It is proven! I am sushi on Keybase: https://keybase.io/sushi/sigchain#c946c24015af2951bd7fa3f1ce01575fd33b70610f81aabc57836e0cee6a74310f
This seems like a very sustainable method of adding Mastodon to keybase.

Happy Trans Day of Visibility!
Here's a fun fact for you today: Trans people have always existed.
My personal speciality is documenting the lives of trans people in Medieval Europe. If you'd like to find out more about this topic, feel free to read my threads:
About a trans woman who lived in London in the 14th century https://mastodon.social/web/statuses/101076816100786504
And about a 13th century French poem which discusses a transmac person's gender-questioning https://mastodon.social/web/statuses/101802067896206745
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)
