Been meaning to set one of these up for the Instance for a long time.
But with the kind suggestion from @obsolete29, just got this live today.
Appreciate anyone's support to help us keep this labor of love of hosting, managing and evolving this instance going strong.
Special thanks to @jeannie who is a co-admin here, & who graciously donated the domain name to this effort. Key links:

I'm interested in #Gemini and other small internet protocols, along with mobile Linux, real sustainability, and various computer languages (including Rust and Zig).
I won't follow too many people here, or engage in politics, but I will share some updates on the things I'm working on.
Trump's social network (Truth Social) is now open source due to pressure from the maintainers of Mastodon.
I have now mirrored the code on Codeberg and GitHub to keep track of changes, ease public examination, and ensure a copy stays public.
I have also generated a basic diff between Mastodon v3.4.1 and Truth Social's latest code. https://codeberg.org/TruthSocial/diffs/
Good article on the implications of "Big Tech" corporations... https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/nov/21/can-big-tech-ever-be-reined-in. We need to deprecate them, methinks.
Fedizens, great news!
Your help is vital!
Surprise! When you force Big Tech to do the right thing, it turns out not to be such a "world-ending" event as they'd like you to believe:
"#Apple is opening up iPhones and Macs to at-home repairs. The company plans to start selling parts and tools and offering instructions on how to repair Apple products at home, without having to bring them into a store or a third-party repair shop. Apple plans to start with the iPhone 12 and 13, followed by Macs with M1 chips."
There are some really amazing designs for the iPad version of our official app in the pipeline, but I'm afraid some scheduling conflicts in engineering mean they won't be implemented for the next few weeks. While the app is iPad-ready in a general sense, since the iPad version requires separate App Store screenshots it makes sense in my view to wait until all the screens are implemented properly to avoid having to re-do the screenshots.

The Facebook leaks should be the starting point, not the end, of a sincere policy debate over concrete approaches that will make the internet—not just Facebook—better for everyone.
