Hi folks, I'm trying moving to aus.social because a) I'm curious, b) Straya. I've run a couple of "tilde"-like services over the years, and there's something in that #SmallWeb world that I miss nowadays and hope to somehow find a way of sustainably recovering as a way to escape from my daily grind. I once helped some people start a #Linux User Group back in the days when we all wore onions on our belts. I love long, aimless #walks where I can listen to #music and practice my #photography skills.
@acb I’m curious if the “local” aspect has any gravity. I never got much out of the “local” tab on my other host. Will I get much out of this one? It’s easy enough to experiment.
@cos Last time I was there (years ago), it was one or two people posting a lot and nobody else posting all that much.
I’m still contemplating setting up a small instance for friends/foafs, as that could be more organic
@cos There are hosted services, such as spacebear.ee, which cost barely more than a lightweight DigitalOcean instance
