Hi everyone at diasporing.ch, I wanted first to thank every single one of you because the amount of users has increased and its making me very happy and slightly worried. Very happy because more people means better visibility for the pod and for the decentralized web, so don't hesitate to invite all the people you know because the more the merrier.
Then it's also making me slightly worried, because the server hard drive space is currently at half capacity, and even though it took nearly 2 years to get to that state, it's now accelerating. So the server is going to be out of space next year for sure.
So I will have to either close the new users from being able to register or increase the space, and who says increase space means increase cost. So to be perfectly transparent, I currently receive around 70 cents per week on liberapay, which only covers 4% of the cost of running this server.
So what I would like is to make a donation drive to be able to get 9.- per month from 10 persons per month. You would agree that it's not really asking much...
So tell me dear users what should I do to convince you? Should I dance the makarena or jump to the moon and back?
Don't hesitate to pm me or send me emails I always answer to those.
Enjoy your time on my pod and let's hope to keep it up against all odds!

Finally, I have deleted my #Google account today!


It was a long an challenging breakup. It started roughly 2 years ago, when I was not able to ignore anymore that Google started switching to the #darkside.

You can easily guess which social network I use instead of #googleplus. [Yes, I use and <3 #diaspora* ;-).]
Instead of #gmail, I use the email account provided by my workplace and #disroot for personal emails.
I chat by using #xmpp (via clients #conversations and #gajim using #omemo for #encryption).
I use #davdroid to synchronize my contact list, calendar and tasklist to my #moblie.
Instead of #chrome, I use #firefox, #torbrowser, #iceweasel, and #icecat.
Instead of #webmail, use #thundebird, #icedove and #k9 email clients.
I use #nextcloud and #syncthing, instead of #googledrive.
For #searching, I sue #duckduckgo and #searx.
Instead of #android, I use #replicant.

Instead of paying with my #privacy, I pay with #donation using #liberapay.


I'm also grateful to @Tiberiu C. Turbureanu (from #technoethical) for helping me fixing my broken replicant install.

Earlier this month, GNOME Foundation announced that they receieved a $400,000 donation from Handshake.org, of which $100,000 they transferred to GIMP’s account.

We thank both Handshake.org and GNOME Foundation for the generous donation and will use the money to do much overdue hardware upgrade for the core team members and organize the next hackfest to bring the team together, as well as sponsor the next instance of [1]Libre Graphics Meeting.

[2]Handshake is a decentralized, permissionless naming protocol compatible with DNS where every peer is validating and in charge of managing the root zone with the goal of creating an alternative to existing Certificate Authorities. Its purpose is not to replace the DNS protocol, but to replace the root zone file and the root servers with a public commons.

GNOME Foundation is a non-profit organization that furthers the goals of the [3]GNOME Project, helping it to create a free software computing platform for the general public that is designed to be elegant, efficient, and easy to use.

Dear people of Diasporing.ch I wanted to tell you that Liberapay has now fixed its problem with the bank they had, and is now available to receive money again. I've done the necessary modifications to the account so that it will correctly send the money to the FairSocialNet bank account.
If you feel so included to start supporting this website it would be a great help! Thank you in advance!
Yours sincerely Tursiops, your friendly podmin.

Please donate to the Libreboot founder


The Libreboot founder, Leah Rowe, needs money for an operation that is probably the most important one in her life: gender reassignment surgery. She cannot afford to pay for the operation herself because she has funded Libreboot with her money and paid a lot of money to get Libreboot onto server hardware and other hardware. You can read more about this topic here:

https://vimuser.org/surgery/

Plase consider making a donation to her. She has given so much money to make Libreboot available to us all for free. I don't think that it is asked too much to give her some of our money in return.

This is also one of the very rare occasions where I ask you to reshare this post so that more people know about this opportunity where you can directly help someone else in the free and libre software community by sending money.

Now we can #donate to #syncthing at #liberapay! \o/

Syncthing project recently joined to liberapay. If you also, use Syncthing to synchronize files between your computes without relying on someone else's computer. Then consider joining its patrons and donate at least a symbolic €0.01/week [per computers you use ;-)] to the project https://liberapay.com/Syncthing/ (or directly to the developers).

Imagine if all the Syncthing users just give this symbolic amount, then the project would get €349.54/week (see current usage statistics). For similar a calculation explaining why even symbolic donations can have a great impact if enough of us are willing to give, see my symbolic €0.01/week Diaspora* donation challenge.

**And we're back bigger and better! **
So the story begins with a small server receiving about a day's worth of public posts at once and being a bit overwhelmed by all this...
In the moments after it started to become unstable and crash, that's why if you have tried to access the site in the last 15 to 30 minutes you might have seen a message saying it couldn't be reached for maintenance or because it was too busy, because it was!
So since a few weeks it was already obvious that the current server config was becoming was too small for what it was growing in.
I've tried to trick it into freeing as much ressources as I could but in the end it could barely hold the load.
So long story short, I made a generous donation to myself, and upgraded the server until next January where I would need to have around 800 CHF to renew the hosting for a year. Yeah I know it's a big number, specially knowing that currently I have around 2$ of recurring donations per week (not counting single donations).
So I might be able to renew it myself, but I also might not we never know... So this is a call for a renewed action for donations to keep this service running at the current specs level. (btw I literally doubled the power, to 4 cpu and 12G of ram)
So pretty please gimme money lol ! ;) Liberapay donation

I will be eternally grateful!

Your devoted podmin!
