I have an XMPP/Jabber server. It features OMEMO encryption. I run it from a closet in my house. It is up if my house has power and internet (so, most of the time.) It allows uploads of pics and video for sharing. Those files are deleted after 24 hours.
You can join it by using "Conversations" on Android, or "Siskin IM" on iOS, to create a new account at thraeryn.org
If you do, please let me know your user name! I am, as one might expect, email@example.com
thraeryn.net will never support hate speech. We will always come down hard on users who promote inequality, and de-federate with instances who are unwilling to say (and do) the same.
If you see one of our users violating these terms, file a report. Send me a message. (I'm on the lookout, of course, and.) The response will be as swift as I can make it.
This is the how-to I wish I had when I set up my Prosody XMPP server. I have no idea why in tarnation no search engine would show it to me.
I'm Thraeryn, the Embodiment of RED and #admin of thraeryn.net.

Anyone have recs for a hard-sided projector case? I think my projector is about 8"•12"•4". Needs to have extra room, ideally, for its power cord and a 4" Fire Stick, as well as two 4" remotes.
(Jinya didn't like that I just tossed it and its accessories in a grocery bag last night.)
I'm grateful the other friend at least texted this morning to confirm details; I was able to set him straight about twelve hours ago :P
I'm just flabbergasted
My entire family has withdrawn for the evening, my partner's asleep, and I have one friend who was apparently in their car trying to locate my house 😶
I had to organize a grocery run to make the trip to Lowe's to get the primer and glue,
but I got that dang frame glued in all the spots I wanted it glued. 💪🏼
Yeah, that works.
I built the PVC frame I described. It works pretty well.
Thinking we'll have a Procession of Snacks
which, sure, will just be a bunch of masked people queueing to go inside & pop popcorn in the microwave
but we can play "Pomp & Circumstance" for it
I think I'm gonna make a stand/frame for the screen with PVC pipe and bungee balls. Take it down, put it in the garage. Maybe be able to tote the whole thing to a buddy's for similar stuff.
I should look into getting a decent speaker (set) for it. Maybe put it on my Christmas list.

Check out Owncast, a neat self-hosted live streaming server!
Opensource, written in #golang, easy to install & setup!
It's still fairly young, but looks super promising and already works amazingly well 😍
My stomach was ready to crown my brain King of the Universe before the Velveeta was even melted.
I might spend time tomorrow caramelizing another two onions to keep on hand in fridge & freezer, because holy shit do I love those things. I got the texture just right today, too.
