I spent hours running in to issues and solving them with updating the computer to work with the new WiFi card. Then there was an issue that hit like a brick wall and I just don't think it will be an easy fix. So I'm now contemplating just getting the new drive that I was glad I decided not to get. That way I can start from scratch and everything is likely to work out of the box.
And like a hundred crappy ones.
In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
