        • @aral Aye, but the risks of being 100% unable to run !FS on the platform (i.e. Apple) must surely be a worse strategic approach?

          Of course I mean repurposing used hardware and not purchasing new Google-financing dung.

          • @mikael Ive considered switching in the past, but its a lot of work to do so for not an awful lot of benefit I'd actually use.

            • @tom79 I'm not sure what you're asking really. Do you want to know the endpoints for subscribing to a !fediverse user on !GNUsocial? If you do a # lookup you'll get this:
              curl -s https://social.umeahackerspace.se/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:mmn@social.umeahackerspace.se | json_pp
              ...
              "href" : "https://social.umeahackerspace.se/api/statuses/user_timeline/2.atom",
              "rel" : "http://schemas.google.com/g/2010#updates-from",
              ...

              The Atom feed, just like an PubSubHubbub enabled feed, has metadata for the subscription endpoint:

              curl -s https://social.umeahackerspace.se/api/statuses/user_timeline/2.atom | grep rel=.hub
              <link href="https://social.umeahackerspace.se/main/push/hub" rel="hub"/>

              To this hub you do the subscription dance for the feed URI (i.e. the Atom link from before): https://pubsubhubbub.github.io/PubSubHubbub/pubsubhubbub-core-0.4.html

              The activitystreams signalling - please note that this is optional, that is something else.

            • @tom79 Oh wait, you want to follow an entire instance? Well, you could always just subscribe to the https://social.umeahackerspace.se/main/public feed. I think maybe that's only notices and not activities in general and it's not served via PuSH natively. But a generic, separate PuSH service that's not tied into the core of GNU social code would be nice.

              • @tom79 Do you want to "share" or download a status via a similar interface that you remote-subscribe via?

                • @gargron I'm sad I can't find a feed for remote users' "mentions" so I can see that my notice has reached them and is in their inbox. Also to see what others write to that person.

                • @aral What's your stance on reused hardware etc? I.e. when and where - if ever - do the benefits outweight the costs on Android vs. Apple?

                  I.e. repurposing Android phones by installing Google-free FLOSS vs. being unable to reuse Apple stuff at all, causing environmental hazards?

                  Do we support surveillance capitalism with environmentalism, or should we support Apple-like capitalism by wasting resources?

                  I'm asking in a constructive manner so please interpret it like that .)

                    • In related news, I am probably going to moosh the two servers I have (right now for HLA and postActiv) into a single more powerful dedicated server.  Talking with the DC about options.

                      Having the two is simply not financially feasible for me right now unless I suddenly get a bunch more subscribers or something.

                      I'll be trying to keep the same amount of IP space and just have them as VMs on another ESXi host, for what its worth.  Disruption should be minimal unless migration fails in a particularly spectacular way.

                        • When I post a claim backed up with links and references and someone else responds with just "no, you're wrong", I think they basically have just confessed they don't have an actual argument.

                            • @bob @fosslinux@tilde.zone Learning anything new is an investment of time and effort, and it's easy to rationalize the familiar.  All the same, Linux, and many other things, would do well to remember that people's priorities are different and "computer stuff" is not going to be a priority for  alot of people.  Your average person in a developing country just wants to view the things you and I do, they aren't invested in how.

I'd print it out for you but the shipping costs would be too high for its novelty value (about 16€ for shipping a small parcel worldwide for me).

I have an own apartment and it is miraculously cluttered as my former room. I'm an IRL Tetris packing master.
