@kemonine lol, you warned me many months ago to self-host docker images, and here we are today, with docker hub pricing plan changes where they are significantly limiting plans (6month retention, and 100pulls per 6 hours)

SpaceBear is a managed hosting service that makes it easier to create your own PixelFed, Mastodon, PeerTube or HomeTown instance.

Managed hosting means SpaceBear takes care of the technical stuff, while you own and manage the instance.

You can follow SpaceBear at:

➡️ @support

Their website is at https://app.spacebear.ee

(HomeTown is a fork of Mastodon which includes support for non-federated posts.)

Oh my, the music streaming world just lost 8tracks https://blog.8tracks.com/2019/12/26/to-everything-there-is-a-season/

Murfie, another streaming option also suddenly closed it doors and seemingly not allowing users to get their physical media/data out first. https://www.theverge.com/2019/12/13/21019565/murfie-madison-wisconsin-store-stream-cd-vinyl-collection-closed

Last year, Soundcloud almost went out of business until they got a 100m investment at the last minute.

Hopefully @funkwhale sees a huge uptick in usage.

Figured since I run a hosting company I should host my own (a mastodon fork) instance.

Hometown is adapted from Mastodon, a decentralized social network with no ads, no corporate surveillance, and ethical design.
