Hello to the fediverse, I guess?
I'm John, a systems administrator/devops/monitoring guy from Montana. Not sure how I'll use this, but setting it up was a fun way to test DigitalOcean doplets...

There's a part of me that suspects a bad network config that I just had to fix on buster...

I have had a tremendous amount of instability lately on my RockPro64 that is hosting this instance.

I guess random hangs that I can't diagnose are fine?

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.
