I kinda want to play around with a Mastodon instance without actually investing anything. I'm not sure if that's possible, though. I tried to run it locally via Docker and it failed. Could have been user error...
I don't _think_ there's currently an instance for my area (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill/Carrboro), and I think it would be a fun project to work on, even if I'm the only one there.
DigitalOcean looks like it would be easiest, but it doesn't have the latest version on the marketplace.
I was recently reminded of Days N' Daze when a friend played them in the background. Forgot how fun they were to listen to.
your regular reminder that censoring words l*ke th*s is actively counterproductive because it bypasses the filters that people set up for themselves
to take an innocuous example, if i use filters to block the word "orange", and you write "or*nge", you have now ensured that i will see a post that i have explicitly tried to get out of my timeline
