PussTheCat.org now has a BreezeWiki instance!

Like a lot of our services, it's using our own docker images.

:linux: PussTheCat.org Announcement: :linux:

Good news!

After years of financial instability/struggle in real life (and to pay for PussTheCat.org), I am now officially, a professional IT technician.

Today, I signed a 6 months employment contract, that is planned to become a permanent one if everything goes right.

This will allow me to have a stable source of income, to kick-start my career, and, for PussTheCat.org, will allow me to enhance/refactor the whole setup.

:linux: PussTheCat.org Announcement: :linux:

Follow up to an older announcement / continuation of an ongoing process.

Tonight/tomorrow multiples services will be shut down:

- Lingva
- PeerTube

I don't know what to host more that's ACTUALLY useful (and doesn't eat a MASSIVE of resources - like LibreTranslate was doing).

I just need to figure out what to focus on honestly but I genuinely don't know, this is why I'm asking you: what should I do? - Focus on hosting 5-10 instances of useful software? Diversify? Something else?

Note: Hosting services like a public Matrix server, a Mastodon instance or similar, isn't planned because of the resources/moderation required. 3/3

Currently 1/4 of what I host publicly is crap and/or useless... (I shut down 3 services today because they were too crap and/or useless and I'll surely shut down more). Nothing I host now, or can host later is "needed", if you look at pussthecat.org/stats/ other than Nitter and Bibliogram (which is now basically dead), everything else is pointless because no one use them, the stuff that are *kinda* useful have a lot of other available public instances. 2/3

:linux: PussTheCat.org's Users feedback required: :linux:

I have been for some months now, trying to figure out where to go with PussTheCat.org. 1/3

:linux: PussTheCat.org Announcement: :linux:

I just spent a bit more than an hour moving the Status page ( status.pussthecat.org ) from a French VPS to a new Moldovan VPS (from another provider).

The VPS is now almost half the price of the previous (and it already was cheap). The bugs of the server DNS that stop responding should now be gone.

Also... the "fix" was just to fix a new quality setting... yet he didn't even see it...

DistroTube/Derek just discovered the reason people don't use Arch/rolling release.

So, as a FOSS advocate: he made a video where he generalize the problem and said that it's a "linux" problem in general.

The comments are filled with Windows users, justifying their "choice" with this video.

Seriously, I like him, but he's such an idiot sometimes.

@thunderbird @k9mail

>K-9 Mail officially joins the Thunderbird family.

In other word, Mozilla is buying K-9... fuck.

Hope someone fork it if the Thunderbird spyware/crap come to it.

I like (and use) Thunderbird, but the fact that it loads a tracking web page when you start it, the fact that analytics is opt-out and the fact that it's a full browser is really shitty.

My opinion on this subject is that it's incompatible, by design, simply because FOSS is fundamentally anti-capitalism (but there are great points made in the video).

@fsf Oh and I almost forgot: for a foundation "with a worldwide mission to promote computer user freedom" I don't see your Nitter instance in the instances list.

Ironic that one-man projects can do more "to promote computer user freedom" than the FSF itself.

@fsf Also... I never saw you talk about any of the other front-ends, because yes, a LOT more than just Nitter exist: Invidious, Bibliogram, Teddit, Libreddit, SimplyTranslate, Librarian, Scribe, ProxiTok, Libremdb, Quetre...

Again: Where were you when half of the instances of some of those projects had to shut down because the maintainer couldn't afford it?

@fsf

The FSF promoting one of the privacy front-ends... cool.

I like you guys, but come on... some of those projects (and most of the services hosting instances of them) have been struggling for years to get funding/developers/legal help...

This post is basically a "look this exist, we never helped it, but go use it"... instead of you know... actually helping...

Where were you when Barinsta got C&D? Where were you when the Bibliogram developer got threaten?
