As remote server administrators, we’re responsible for everything except the physical maintenance of the machines on which the server is installed. We operate this and a few other servers in our spare time as a personal project.

This project is largely a labor of love that we’re hoping to sustain with some modest financial support from individual community members.

* Mastodon is a free, open-source social network server based on ActivityPub where users can follow friends and discover new ones. On Mastodon, users can publish anything they want: links, pictures, text, video. All Mastodon servers are interoperable as a federated network (users on one server can seamlessly communicate with users from another one, including non-Mastodon software that implements ActivityPub)!
