For now I've settled on GNUsocial. I'll keep my profile at @ng0, but I'll switch to using this instance.

@cwebber Do you know if the team around GNUsocial works on implementing ActivityPub?

I could also go for GNUsocial as it doesn't imply trusting a full NodeJS blob'ed path of dependencies.

my only concern is disk usage - I pay 2.50€ per 25GB per month. I know the feediverse is big at this point and that the stored data (as little as I know about Mastodon's internals) depends on the world view of my node.
What kind of growth is in there?

hey user ! I have :

1) How much traffic does your instance consume per month?

I have no limits, but I'd still know stats to be sure - running a tor exit with 4+ TB/month was okay in the network this would be located in.

2) If possible I'd like to know how big your disk usage of Mastodon is - I will never use external services like AWS. From past exchanges with Diaspora admins I know that old instances use large amounts of disk space.

Seems like doesn't federate here yet. So, copy-paste repost:

Oh yeah, another thing: Yesterday I've update the preview version of the for Guix that is currently (since at least August) in QA. It can be found in the repo named 'packages' on in the group 'ng0_guix'

Among many other productive things in the last days, I will:

- mentor someone who'll build a Docker package (Docker itself from source, not an image)
- finish Buildbot for Guix and
- Give the gnunet shepherd service another try and work on it with other GNUnet hackers in one location later in 2018.

The #c3nav team decided to stop working on the app until #ccc makes public statement regarding latest treatment of victims. I could not read all linked tweets but think that's a good decision. #34c3

News from congress: I managed to get a more precise description and low + high-level view on infotropique. Some open questions remain.

Good that in Leipzig has their own website. I would've almost gone there. They are closed until 2nd of January.

A restaurant overlay for Openstreetmap would be nice, being able to filter out restaurants by type of diet they serve.

Also: the first time ever I had to book a hotel. I only had hostels, B&Bs, camping sites and couch surfing and everything else before.

Strange experience. At least they take cash and not just plastic.

Zone 110 in Leipzig covers surprisingly much of Leipzig. My hotel is so much "in" Leipzig city/middle that I would call it "outside" of city/middle.

As of December 2017, we are a 0.27083166893 Debian by package (not output) count \o/

and in the end it's up for the office to decide wether my art (currently it's just hacking, music is taking a long break) is really art. blergh.

Not that I'm selling my work, but the fact that my name goes through like seventeen computers a day (well more, but quote for the sake of bad movie quotes ;))
and it's on public statements etc should count.

Looking into getting my "initialism + added 0" kind of pseudonym added to my IDD.

Wtf Germany. I hope this is just one of many *recommendations*. So far I figure that there is no standard process for this, differs by town and state.
