I run my own personal instance for me and my friends called Cybr Egg.
@ctrlsquid how was your experience getting a server up and running? I'm debating on it but worried it would be easy to get lost in the weeds?
@stonedonkey I actually found it extremely easy using Digital Ocean's setup. Took maybe...10 minutes? https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/mastodon
Admittedly, I use AWS for most of my hosting, but I found the more manual way super intimidating. Glad there's solutions like these. And I love DO, they're a cool group. I've done volunteer work with them before.
@ctrlsquid awesome thanks!
