I just got an email saying my phone (which provides me with internet) will be suspended for non-payment.
I can't even afford bread right now, and I have bills that I cannot pay.
Boosting puts my need in front of people with an extra dollar or two.
With LiberaPay in limbo, the GoFundMe is my only option:
Even a dollar or two helps.
Sharing to other social media helps immensely as well.
Do you live in the Lents neighborhood of Portland, OR? We are exploring an opportunity to open a second co-op store there, and are seeking feedback:

I really don't understand why Mastodon is not written in a way that is more customizable. Sure, have good defaults, but why not make most features a toggle? So, long as the endpoint to keep the federation working properly are consistent it seems like the rest of the features could just be optional. Heck, make them plugins.

slowly figuring out how to implement ActivityPub for GetTogether. I have a setup for webfinger. Now, I need to work on http-signatures. Then, I need json-LD representations for everything. Finally, I need an inbox, outbox, and cucumber workers to process those.

I'm gonna start working on an ActivityPub implementation for GetTogether. I've written up my thoughts on how to architect it, and I would love your feedback if you are interested federated event management.
hey, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself after I made those few PRs on GetTogether. My name is Briar Rose, and I have about 6 years industry experience as a full stack dev, android app engineer, and sysadmin. For a few years I worked for Cvent the event host company. Today I'm the sysadmin at People's Food Co-op in Portland, OR.
I love event software, and GetTogether seems super interesting. Maybe even something the co-op could host a community event instance at some point!
Just submitted my first pull request for gettogether.community. :D
Now I have to dive into a more serious issue now that I know the codebase :|

For those of you that run home services that are reachable on the web (ie running a pleroma instance on a Pi in the closet) what do you use for DNS? Is everyone just using something like pagekite? Can everyone afford a static IP?
I'm thinking about getting a rack server and setting up something in a colo, but even that is going to be economically prohibitive :(
