My favorite service to host is #Mastodon.
It‘s high quality all around: The frontend is nice and easy to use, it has all the features I expect and setup + maintenance are uncomplicated. I’ve never run in major trouble in more than 2 years of hosting my instance.
Kudos to @Gargron and all the other developers! 👏

Just moved my Mastodon instance to another storage pool with minimal downtime, thanks to ZFS and its incremental FS copies! \o/

metalhead.club is now running #mastodon 2.9.0 🎉

Have fun with the new version!
Every day ~ 4,000 cached media attachments are deleted from metalhead.club ( ~1.3 GB)
metalhead.club disk usage: 147 GB. #mastodon
Re-indexing the Mastodon database for Elastissearch. This will take forever.
Oh, another nice feature from the #Mastodon release notes - now there's:
