New instance rule: "If your activity results in a lot of extra work for me, e.g. dealing with complaints and reports, your account will be silenced."


If I've found a successor by Oct 9, they will take over the server and hopefully run it without interruption thereafter. If I haven't found one, the server will become unstable and could be down for periods of time. If no successor is found after 6 months (Jan 9), it may go offline.


I don't have time to run it anymore. It crashes randomly, even with only a handful of active users. And I no longer enjoy this type of social media. [2/2]

IMPORTANT: I'm preparing to hand off this instance to a new admin, which could be you!

I'll run the instance as normal for three months. In that time, message me if you want to apply to run the instance. Ideally I'd find someone who would maintain the existing instance rules, since users agreed to those when they joined.

Timeline and rationale to follow. [1/2]

My first dabble in ikebana. Foraging for the bits is a lot of fun!

So I cast off my 2018 temperature blanket on Jan 1st and I am so pleased with how it turned out. I knit one garter stitch row every day for 365 days based on the daily high temp for my city. It was a very rewarding project. #knitting

all these articles and talk about "alternative careers for PhD graduates"... I should ask them if they graduated high school. "Yes." "Ah, so you're a high school teacher now?" "uh no." "Oh interesting, you chose an alternative career."
