@asonix it's no problem at all. One of my friends bright me into this group. I really like it, unfortunately the introduction yeah isn't working for me right now. So I'll just do it here. I an a transwoman, nb, pansexual. In also a vehemently leftists internet activists. I was really interested in how you guys were able to set this up on a SBC.
@KodiakCouch yeah I mean mastodon is too heavy for 1 raspberry pi, but if you get 2 or 3 rock64s you can run it really well.
The limitation is Memory, not CPU (although it is a bit slower than other instances). You just need to make sure you have enough RAM to transcode videos and images when they show up.
My setup has masto-web and masto-streaming on a rock64, postgres on another rock64, and masto-sidekiq on a pi2 that mounts an NFS share from the masto rock64
@asonix I was also looking at AtomicPi's. Connected to PiServer. Thank you Soo much for the info.
@asonix ugh stupid keyboard, sorry for my grammar. We're also looking to build up more groups on these types of platforms. So we can get people off of Facebook. We currently also have designs for a new type of social media that will utilize this. Also I really hanging out with you guys.
Here's my neat mastodon instance on a collection of Single Board Computers. This instance is for me and a few of my local friends.
