@Gargron I'd have to dig through my notes when I get home, can't remember offhand.

@Gargron oh well then I fixed it the wrong way. I'll keep that in mind when doing more storage work in the future!

@Gargron Pretty sure I ran into this issue transferring to DigitalOcean Spaces, it would have definitely been useful at the time.

@jackwilliambell Cynically, I don't see this as anything other than an "Embrace, Extend, Extinguish" move.

The Fediverse's tipping point is arriving. Brace yourselves.

@Gargron perhaps countries should be running ActivityPub implementations for their heads of state, public officials.

When agencies, institutions, brands, celebs, media, et cetera come to the fedi with their own instances, what will the "tipping point" look like?

@BernieOrVest As it is now the Fediverse only has around 4 or 5 million accounts and only a fraction of those are actually active users in a given month. has a little more than 400k total accounts. It won't be cheap to operate a server that's effectively 2x the existing fedi.

@BernieOrVest it'll likely be cheap to start out with and it may be worth looking at @mastohost for getting started.

@BernieOrVest good news is that if hosting becomes a major expense for you, you have *other* problems to worry about and if you set your organization up the right way, you could qualify for certain incubator incentives from your provider of choice.

@BernieOrVest deploying to a cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services, I imagine it'll be $$$ for things such as media storage, readiness to scale horizontally, and to engineer a proper highly available site architecture. Ball park about $20-200k a month for 10m MAU

It's odd that version v3.0.1 of Mastodon is still not on the DigitalOcean marketplace. I submitted it in the middle of October

@Gargron How do you build your images? Do you have a packer script you can open source?

"Distance Instagram from other social networks"

This shit is why the fediverse will thrive.

Facebook is too scared to let other social networks be mentioned along side them 😂
