hey @switchingsocial, maybe this question doesn't belong here... I have a VPS running tinc and nextcloud

any service recommendation of alternatives (like Linode, Dreamhost) not based in the U.S., with focus on privacy?

Wish you get a good work/employment soon, Sean.

Hang up tight!

@sean I sent $100 your way for everything you've been doing for decentralized social media. You've been its reporter for as long as I've joined it, and I never had the chance to express my gratitude to you. I'm sorry I'm only doing it when your personal situation is dire but it is heartfelt nonetheless.

Hey, listen.

I've been unemployed for the last few months, recovering from intense burnout. I'm in the process of looking for jobs, but realistically, I'm very close to being broke.

I'm trying my best to live lean and come up with some kind of income...but to be honest, I need help. I've got only 400 bucks to my name right now, and bills are going to cause major damage.

I'm trying to work my way up to $1210 to cover rent after the next month. While I don't at all expect that kind of money to just be handed to me, I'm not confident that I'm going to be able to get a job in time to cover it.

My biggest costs right now are servers. I'm running We Distribute and VidCommons entirely out of pocket with no donations. This probably is why neither have been updated very frequently in recent months, but if they're to continue operation, I need at least 80 bucks to cover it. If I can't, both of those projects will be on ice for a while, with their sites taken down.

If anyone would like to help me financially during this trying time, here's some links for donations. I hate having to do this, but I'm trying to survive.

@praveen @abhas I think we should talk and give examples of "Why should we care?"
We can show that people can still make enough money without being evil and use free software for getting things done,

How about we setup a booth to check all laptops with 100% Free Software (have bootable pendrives of #debian and live boot the laptops) and update ? #FreeSoftware
