I've done a brief write up of my experience over the last 2 weeks with the influx of sign ups and expansion of mastodon.nz 😃 (I'm by no means a writer/blogger! Just documenting bits and pieces)

@idanoo Appreciate the update and the behind-the-scenes information.

@idanoo very cool! Thanks for all the effort 👍 there's a coffee coming your way

@idanoo So cool to be able to see the actual hardware we exist on. Takes me back to hosting my minecraft server in high school and experiencing a very similar growth from server for friends (literally hosted on a broken laptop) to suddenly getting a huge growth in users. Exciting, confusing and challenging.

@allison683etc Definitely! I should have documented more as I went but it just happens so fast. Old laptops are great for that kind of thing!

@idanoo that this is hosted on a box you own makes this even cooler. I'd have just used aws, but seeing physical hardware is 🤌

@epii1 Yeah for sure! I did consider AWS. But other than cost, it'd have to be in Sydney 😅
