holy shit. I did it. It actually works.

I have spun up a Pleroma instance on... my fucking Nintendo Switch. I don't think the Switch was ever intended to be a **webserver**, but hey, it's 2019 and there are lightbulbs with CPUs built into them soooo

It can be accessed at cursed.frinkel.tech. don't sign up if you want a reliable instance, since it'll probably be down 90% of the time, since I'd actually like to use my switch to do what it was intended to do and play games. :P

> A silo, or web content hosting silo, is a centralized web site (like most social media) typically owned by a for-profit corporation that stakes some claim to content contributed to it and restricts access in some way (has walls).

Regarding spam: Should we make this Mastodon instance invite-only (with invites available from any existing user or from me if you email me directly)?

Honestly, though, if you're going to try and advertise *anything,* this instance is probably the worse choice for that.

Someone from Cisco went on stage to propose weakening TLS 1.3 for "network-based security solutions" (enterprise spyware).

There was a long line at the mic of people pushing back on it... I almost felt bad for the poor speaker 🙂

After over 3 months of using on my iPhone I’ve finally figured out how to view the local/federated timeline 👌

Hey-o! Just want to say if you're enjoying our Mastodon server, our Matrix chat, or anything else we're doing @ privacytools.io, I would really appreciate it if you'd consider donating any amount towards our costs 😄

We're currently spending around $60/month on servers and other infrastructure, and we'd like to be able to pay our team more in the future! We prefer liberapay.com/privacytools.io/ but there are many other contribution methods at privacytools.io/donate/ 😅 Thanks everyone!!

"Jonah has 1 patron."

Huh, someone is giving me money. I wonder who it is, but LiberaPay won't say...

So what’s the deal with kiwifarms and why have multiple people told me to silence/suspend them now? I’ve never even heard of them, is this a preemptive thing? Hard to keep up with things at this rate 🤔

Finally setup my own Nextcloud install! 😄

This place (this fed) is amazing.

Every time I login here it's what I always hoped Twitter was going to be but wasn't.
