i am also over here - @wrul - coaxing hometown/mastodon along on a modest little v.p.s. with only a few gigs' spare storage. will rejecting media on the basis of top level domain do the trick...?

eighteen hundred domain blocks in place - the vast majority being only the rejection of media, in order to conserve storage space - and this fragile little instance might be ready to federate!

hiya! #introduction?

i’m taking.. consults watch …the pandemic off from facilitating productions in the arts, and your more in-person aspects of activism and advocacy in community. meanwhile, a lot of my attention has been on decolonial thought & practice; issues in community organising; urban nurture of ecology; multilingual stenography theory; dance and music from xentonal/-rhythmic/-timbral and social perspectives; mechanics of bicycles in terms of adaptive cycling; and assessment of wheelchair design. i conduct a lot of wobbly darning and weaving now, too. & hang on—what’s that! a somewhat begrudging interest in computing?

in recent years, i’ve been considering a variety of ways to build a cosy venue on the internet for a small bunch of people. i’m personally rapt with the gemini protocol (despite being yet to get serving anything in gemspace), but reckon the go may be a pubnix-socmed blend that maintains some connection webward. cue intermittant wild duckpaddling to learn What Does a Sysadmin and How Can a Novice?

so hello fediverse! i’m mainly doing gentle stress tests of possible platforms, examining administrative minutiae, and scouting ahead for the hazards, to try and ensure a proactive, comfortable, and adaptable environment from the very beginning, especially for multiply marginalised people.

sorry my posts’ll skew naive and techy and meta for a while as a result. and heads up, i often can’t type or press buttons accurately, so online i am much less conversational than i’d like. but nonetheless lovely to meet you!

homet etc etc is a test instance, really
