@Mainebot they're still hosted but i'm making the infrastructure as light and simple as possible, so the panel won't work and all that.
in the end i expect to keep only my instances and a few friends and stop the whole commercial side
@Mainebot not really, that was very automated and i'll still charge people while instances are up (i'm still paying servers)
@CobaltVelvet Hi! Sorry if I'm being too curious. Do you stop because it's too much time consuming and you're doing this on your freetime, or did you try to live from it and it doesn't pay enough, or are there personal reasons?
@danstonchat a bit of all of those - it's too much work, i don't have the energy to run a full business, and there it's not paying enough for me to live from it (it doesn't look like it would for a very long time, assuming expansion).
@CobaltVelvet Are the scripts for running that open-source?
(Still interested in doing something with this, but events seem to be overtaking me.)
@woozle i'll certainly make them open-source someday, ping me sometime later if you want it before i take the time to clean and document it
@CobaltVelvet I'm not too sure how to say that, but I'm supporting you.
I hope you'll get your spoons back.
@rick_777 what no
maastodon was my mastodon hosting provider, and it's now at least temporarily closed
@CobaltVelvet Thank you for everything. (I know this could be read as sarcastic, but I'm 100% sincere.)
