Running Casually.cat and Transfur.online in a lower resource mode while the server computer handles some heavy tasks. Should still work all good, but some actions may take a bit longer. #InstanceUpdates
Being without VR and a computer to run it has given me a sense of peace the past few days. I think sometimes having expensive-ish things means you’re always stressed they’re going to break and you won’t be able to replace them.
Also, VR had a profoundly negative impact on my life in general and I’m ready to move on. Becoming more firm to those who keep bringing it up to me that I’m never doing it again has been good.
If you're on a big instance with lots of members, you might want to consider moving to a smaller instance.
Smaller instances can give members more personal attention, as the admin has more time to deal with members' feedback. They also tend to have more interesting local timelines if you pick an instance that matches your favourite topic.
Using smaller instances also protects the Fediverse from nasty people or companies, because a spread-out Fediverse is much harder to hack or buy.
Made the decision to suspend a few accounts on the instance that showed little regard for fact checking content. While what was originally posted was correct information, I'm really not interested in federating with folks who aren't interested in making sure what they spread around is consistent across multiple sources. This goes for liberals and conservatives. There's enough extremism out there.
Hello! Never cat, always pig. I finally figured it out! Also fighting with @Dook_Ferret! >:3
