I closed public registration on #diasporg in hopes that will push new users to other pods and help distribute things out more. You can of course invite your friends to the pod with your invite link if you like or send them to http://podupti.me so they can find one close to home!
#bitcoin seems to be humming along and doing well. I was just able to renew domains for #diasporg using the coins folks have sent me to support the pod. The one thing I was thinking is ooh I wonder what other bills I can pay for the pod with the coins folks have sent me, so I go and check out the bitcoin site and I can not for the life of me find a list of who takes coins.. I am sure ill find it, but I would think this to be a major need for users? reminds me of how the gnome.org site has no link to extensions.gnome.org and you have to go find it on your own…
Doing some server work, spinning down one smaller dedicated server that was not being used much. Let me know if any email in or out issues from diasp.org I have moved all email handling to another server. #diasporg
Donations picked up this week and Diasporg is out of the red again!
Several people have asked about a direct credit/debit link, https://www.wepay.com/donations/66744 allows for donations of any amount with no account, just enter your card data, much better than paypal and they take a lot less of the money.
If you use diasp.org email you may have noticed I installed spamassassin and you should see new headers on your email (view sorce). If it scores high enough you will see ***SPAM*** in the subject line also.
