At least this way I can run a multi-user pleroma instance and not worry about disk space issues for the time being.
@fristi so you literally have a local server for it?! This is actually damn awesome, we all pay for renting :awoo:
@fristi I remember 2 months ago I added an if statement for Reisen bot for her to not completely ignore gifs and mp4 files, but to download them instead. I mean when she picks arts if it's not jpg on png she ignores them and pulls next art.
And then I completely forgot about it. Good that I remembered recently because my droplet has the smolest amount of space and she somehow saved damn lots ready :youmuhype:
@blobyoumu @fristi me and other admin both pay for super huge server where we keep matrix, mastodon instance, next cloud and vpn (and funkwhwle but I don't use it) and then I have a personal smol droplet for 5$ where I just run all my bots, not Reisen only.
And there will be more. Because writing bots is fun.
But the biggest thing I worry about is how to keep this thing safe from the elements, such as electrical surges, especially lightning strikes. It's currently powered by a UPS that grants some level of surge protection, but a full blown lightning strike can still take things out. Also, the network cable isn't protected from surges. I still need to go around fixing that stuff.
"I am going to ruin this fcking weeb instance" :honk_chen:
@fristi imagine having a cat just to call it "Chen". And then on Christmas and Halloween you make it to wear a smol touhou bonnet :blobawoo:
