@mister_monster I don’t know what you mean. Impersonate you where exactly?

@mister_monster yes but that is a different situation, because I don’t want my email provider reading my emails. In this situation, your VPN provider can read your traffic regardless, so it is moot.

@mister_monster I’m not aware of *any* VPN provider that lets you generate your own private key. I don’t see how this is a security vulnerability anyhow.

@mister_monster honestly I haven’t looked into WireGuard too much because I don’t use it myself. But presumably Mullvad can see all your traffic either way so I’m not sure it matters?

@angristan did you move back to Wasabi as well or are you sticking with Scaleway?

It now comes with a neat criteria section, and a ton of other information. Major shout out to our team member daniel for being the driving force behind this assignment :)

Go take a look and enjoy!

@L1Cafe dunno how you do that. I'm constantly at 14-16 GB used (out of 16) running essentially nothing. I'd kill for a 64GB model.

In case you need to email me, I have a new PGP key! Please download & sign & whatever: jonaharagon.com/keys/ 0x6A957C9A9A9429F7

We are especially interested in mobile hardware, laptops, and security keys, but also things like routers, IoT stuff, etc...

@mewmew Xeon E3-1245 V2 (4c 8t), 32 GB RAM, 2x480GB SSD. But we host a lot of stuff on this server, not just Mastodon.

The new server will probably have the same specs. We're just running out of storage space currently. Matrix is the other big resource hog, so one instance had to go. And god forbid I have to migrate our Matrix install again lmao

Hello, good people of Mastodon!

I'm going to be migrating this instance to a new dedicated server tomorrow at 11 AM (Central Time) so uh, there's gonna be some downtime 😄

@kylejj thank you for your donation to PTIO btw, every time I visit our page this cracks me up lmao

@CyberSocialist so far it seems like a social network, kind of a mix of Facebook and Medium.com, but more privacy-focused, and it pays you for interacting & publishing content. Idk, you can see my page: minds.com/jonaharagon/ seems like an interesting idea as far as monetization goes.

Oh, now I gotta post to have people interact with me? These are the hidden costs they don't tell you about when you sign the Mastodon contract
