I'm following this guide: https://anystack.xyz/how-to-install-mastodon-ubuntu/ on Debian Stretch
Just in case you want a nice big dose of depression this evening:
"One of the smartest aspects of this design is that nobody who staffs the machine has any stake or power in the structure as a whole. They, meaning I, can’t talk to someone more important ourselves, even if we wished to. [...] When you scream down the phone you’ve ruined my life, your system error means I can’t get a mortgage, you will rarely if ever be screaming at anyone who could help you."
I have a C7000-100NAS #Netgear router, which I'd expect to support #VPN, as it's advertised. Apparently, that just means while they don't block VPN ports. WTF? I'm definitely not buying from them again, would not recommend!
(worse is that Netgear's firmware *does* have support for VPN, it's just not enabled on this $170 router)
I have an idea... launch a #Mastodon instance (maybe mastodon.network) that follows all users to get them to show up in the federated timeline. That way, not only would it be a complete federated timeline, it would also be an archive of the network, so if an instance goes down, content from those users is still mostly available.
I know mastodon.host does something similar to this with Federation Bot but I'm thinking of doing it at an even larger scale.

This #Discord "feature" annoys me so much. It pops up every few weeks and is just soo annoying. It's not even a message.
