Also might go lewd on here now and then? I miss pre-pornpocalypse Tumblr, where the culture seemed to support treating sexuality just like any other interest or part of life.

Anyway, hi, glad to be here!

Hey y'all! I'm tentatively moving over here because my old instance,, was just kinda... dull. I like the vibe here.

: I'm Spencer, a Millennial in his late 20s living in Oregon, USA. I'm big on decentralizing and cultivating small-scale community, 'cause I think that's how we avert the cyber-fascist future we appear to be barreling toward.


I successfully installed the latest version of on my server!

I'm now a stone's throw away from my dream of having a private social network for my friends and myself.

Big thanks to @darius for his "Run Your Own Social" guide, which kicked this off for me, to @hypolite for ongoing work on Friendica, and @tobias for help upgrading the YunoHost installer script.

I'm nearly jumping for joy. πŸŽ‰πŸ˜

I'm running up against the limits of my understanding in both my 3D printing and my attempt to fix the Friendica installer for YunoHost, and it's a decidedly frustrating feeling.

Hey @tobias, thanks for providing a roadmap for upgrading the Friendica for YunoHost install script. Turns out that was just enough direction for me to get in there and start making changes myself. I appreciate it immensely. :)

Really wishing I could square the circle and set up a install on my own computer that could also send and receive mail. My ISP seems to have other plans.

Replying here because I forgot to tag , which seems to be a somewhat more active hashtag.

If anyone has the know-how and time to spare on updating a YunoHost package, please check out my toots upstream. The package is out-of-date by about a year, and fixing that could help make the Fediverse even more available.

I'm assuming it's outside of my grasp, that is. If it's as simple as changing a variable for the source file name and some checksums, that's one thing, but if just about *anything* else needs done (databases? new certificates? I dunno, configuring APIs?), I'm clueless, and I don't know how to tell if that's necessary.

Does anyone have the time and know-how to update the [Friendica package for YunoHost]( It's currently packaged with version 2019.01, and the latest release version of Friendica appears to be 2019.12.

The [YunoHost contributor documenation]( has information on packaging apps.

This is outside of my technical understanding, so I don't feel capable of doing it myself, hence the call. All help would be greatly appreciated!

I ordered a 3D printer after Christmas and I'm *so* eager for it to ship. It'll take some tweaking and setup, but I don't mind.

I can't wait to start printing board game inserts and accessories. 😁

My installation went so smoothly last night! In the course of an evening, I went from having nothing to having a server with OwnCloud, Wallabag, RainLoop, DokuWiki, and Bitwarden installed.

There's still a little bit to iron out with some of the individual apps (Bitwarden in particular doesn't work; the session times out as soon as I log in), and I wish I could radically change the apps screen because the Adobe-style tiles don't work for me. But otherwise, huge success!

After months spent progressing at a snail's pace on getting my server set up, I've rediscovered tonight and it's almost *exactly* what I want.

I had given up on my goal of having my server up and running by the year's end, but it actually may be feasible after all!
