Wow the fedverse slows down a bit when amazon is offline
@Sir_Boops Amazon died?
@woah I can't hit a bunch on sites hosted on amazon shit it it would seem
@Sir_Boops OMG. That is really surprising seeing as how they have like 100x redundency for it's aws and shit
@woah This is the second time this month :x
@Sir_Boops This is why people need to stop putting all their instance in AWS and DO...
It's just another form of #centralization.
@UberGeek YES or self host more!
@UberGeek @Sir_Boops where else would you put it? Not everyone can self-host :(
@woah @UberGeek pleroma + any potato you have sitting around works :p
@Sir_Boops @UberGeek I can run pleroma on myself?!?!
@woah @UberGeek Awww :<
@Sir_Boops @UberGeek Call me sir spuds.
@woah @Sir_Boops @UberGeek self hosting is the only way decentralization makes sense.
@woah @Sir_Boops If for some reason, you believe you cannot self host, other than AWS and DO there are:
VultrOVHHiFormanceetc etc etc
Google: "VPS hosting".
That being said, if you have any computer, and an internet connection: You can self host.
@UberGeek @Sir_Boops places like OVh isn’t self hosting because you do not OWN the hardware or the internet connection.
@woah @Sir_Boops originally, I had posted ppl need to stop cramming everything in aws and DO. Self hosted is obviously optimal for decentralized, though, for most use cases.
