Just signed up to pay @tursiops a bit of money every week for running tooting.ch. Nothing is really free, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are 'free' because they sell your data. @tursiops does not sell your data, so he needs to make money some other way to pay for the service. If everyone on tooting.ch paid him just a tiny bit a week, it wouldn't cost him money to provide this service for us. Make your #mastoAdmin happy: https://liberapay.com/Tursiops/
(This is also why I also pay for Wikipedia.)
@karen honestly I don't have any crt since even before 1998 so I didn't even know you could still buy then, now lcd screens are so cheap that it's a no brainer to replace them
@eff I see that the Frontier alliance is only for US I run a small non profit in Switzerland and would love to join it.
Free, subsidized world-wide shipping for products from China is a price we just can't afford to pay.
On the contrary, we're overpaying for this by further destroying our environment and economies.
Mind you: I'm not trying to bash Chinese products here. But please, let's not pretend shipping something worth $5 across the entire globe is something you'll get for free.
@chris j'ai trouvé du monde en suisse qui l'utilise mais c'est encore vraiment très marginal
@6a62 the story of my life
@greg_harvey you're welcome. More to come once we paid that subsequent bill I talked about ;) let's take over the world!
@greg_harvey ok then just a pat on the back ;)
@greg_harvey well you're a noble man mister, I salute you ;)
And yeah I forgot liberapay counted donations per week ;) lol
@esheep good idea, go to the cellar if you have one it would be the ideal temperature
@esheep pretty good, it's beautiful outside so I'm preparing myself to go out have a nice walk. What about you?
@esheep Hi sheep! Great to see you!
@greg_harvey indeed my friend. If everyone paid only 1$ a month like you do, I wouldn't have to write such messages. The long version is over at diasporing.ch
@greg_harvey thank you very much, you read my mind. Also you sent this message at the same as I sent mine ;) coincidence ;) lol
Dear everyone using tooting.ch, it's this time of year again where the bill is due for the hosting cost for the year, and if I'm writing this message it means that we don't have enough money to cover it all. At the moment we are about 200$ short, in the spirit of transparency here are the raw numbers: price for a year is 752.8 CHF we currently have 571.6 CHF in the association bank account
This money powers the server that not only hosts diasporing.ch but also tooting.ch and a few other projects
@satanya Thank you :D
Yay! Let's celebrate the 100th user on tooting.ch ! #mastoAdmin
@solidsanek Yay for tetris!
