oh btw you can probably run mastodon entirely on one of those 4GB raspberry pis now, so total cost comes out to

$55 - raspberry pi
$8 - wall adapter
$10 - micro SD
$25 - 120GB Solid State
$10 - external SSD enclosure
---------------------------------------------
$108

but it's a 1-time payment, unlike renting a VPS from a cloud provider.

@hyperlink It's now easier than ever to run a small mastodon instance for your friends or family!
