Trump's new social network is preparing to launch... look familiar?
I advise you get on blocking the below domains.
You knew it was going to happen.
Boost it far and wide!
@anotherkiwiguy No problem ! Reading your previous post I wanted to find your new account, but I was glad to see you'd already sent a follow request :D
The Domain “kaitaia.life” is being dropped. This means my account and all associated posts on social.kaitaia.life are also being dropped (soon, just preparing for now). A new instance has been setup at contra.privacyhub.xyz
My new account is @anotherkiwiguy
The PEBKAC Show is also getting its own account @pebkac_show
I fully understand how inconvenient this is, and I apologise if it’s annoying. But if you feel like you still want to follow me or the podcast, please look me up there.
Thanks, you’re the best!
Why is this happening? (short version)
Basically, the small server running the instance of Pleroma is not powerful enough to cope with the large amount of content coming in, or being posted. Because of hardware limitations, it cannot be upgraded.
A new, long term instance has been created at contra.privacyhub.xyz, and this machine is a lot more powerful, and able to be upgraded in the future.
Why is this happening? (long version)
I originally hosted Pleroma via Yunohost, on a small Intel Atom based Shuttle. While it was sufficient at the time, it has since far outgrown the available resources of the machine.
There is also a rather nasty bug in the Yunohost Pleroma app that causes upgrades to fail, and crash. There is no known fix, and movement on the project has been stagnant. This essentially means, that unless I completely reinstall the Yunohost Pleroma app, I run the risk of any future upgrades breaking my system. This has been the case for almost a year now.
Rather than rely on a 3rd party to deal with any Pleroma issues, I thought that if I’m going to have to reinstall anyway, I might as well upgrade to a bigger machine, and pull Pleroma directly from the source.
Also, moving domains with a current installation is prohibitively difficult, as it would break federation, and require manual intervention in the database. Not an ideal situation.
This will also allow me to split The PEBKAC Show off from my own personal account. Meaning, I can post more about things I’m interested in, and offer my opinion without it interfering with the Podcast.
It also means that people can contact the podcast directly, and I can keep things nice and tidy. If I bring on anyone else to help in the future, I can share the access to the account.
Cheers for reading my ramblings, I know it’s a great wall o’text.

Insightful. We can't repeat often enough that @mobian , @debian , @postmarketOS , @manjarolinux and others would not be where they are now, without @purism adopting a cooperative upstreaming policy. We would wager that everyone purchasing a (true) Linux device now, benefits from your investments. There is plenty to criticize and nag about you 😝, but you are doing the whole FOSS community a service that could not easily be replicated by volunteers.
lookin for work [software dev or somethin] boosts appreciated

HOW COOL IS THAT!? My Pinephone, my Linux mobile phone ran the CI workflow of InfiniTime correctly and provided valid firmware in the end!
I've spent some time ironing out some porting bugs, but so far it looks really good!
There's still a lot of work to do, plus probably refactoring some stuff, but it's finally coming together!
My home server running #Yunohost was desperately outdated, it was still based on Debian Stretch! So as a good server admin I started the upgrade to Buster and left for work. Because what could go wrong, right? 😅
Kidding aside, I'm checking access to web services remotely (Nextcloud, Pleroma) and things seem fine for now. I had done a backup last night, and it's not like this is a critical server. 🤓
