    1. What are your recommendations for self hosting?

      First, thanks to everyone who chimed in on the earlier thread where I asked about private messaging app preferences. I learned a great deal from it!

      Basically, I'd like to self host Pi-Hole and Matrix/Riot. There is a slight chance that I may self host some other things in the future.

      Would a Raspberry Pi be the best option (I'm assuming that I could plug this into my router)?

      I'm on DSL (currently 15mbps download/1mbps upload) and wondered how this might affect the use of Matrix/Riot. Would voice and/or video work properly?

      Also, I'm not quite sure how Matrix/Riot works with self hosting. Will I be able to access other public Matrix/Riot homeservers through my self hosted account?

      A little over a year ago I created an unofficial matrix room for the tildes community. I believed at the time, and still do, that the infrastructure supporting the community should be founded on open, sustainable software, and matrix was an interesting new solution in this space similar to the Discords and Slacks of the world. Though the room is bridged with the IRC chat activity has remained relatively low compared to Discord.

      Unfortunately I haven't had the time to properly moderate this channel. Though the community's involvement there has remained civil I do not think I'm active enough to ensure things stay that way.

      As such I am looking for an interested person or persons to take over this channel over the next week or so and if no suitable replacements are found will be shutting the room down until further notice.

      Thanks everyone,

    3. A music Discord server borrowing some principles from Tildes

      Hi there, I've started a new public server on Discord for music discussion, recommendations, etc. I've seen a number of these go down in flames or completely lose the appeal for their core audience, so I've borrowed some principles from Tildes, adapted for the somewhat different but related issues this kind of Discord server typically runs into. I thought this may be of interest to some users here, so you're all welcome as long as you play by our rules!

      If you'd like to see our rules and goals first, check the paste here. They'll be pretty familiar to anyone here, though they are subject to change depending on our needs. This should go without saying, but to be clear, this server is not officially connected to Tildes, nor is it exclusive to Tildes users. There just might be some overlap in ideas :)

    4. Looking to chat? I've created an (unofficial) Tildes community Matrix room!

      #tildes:matrix.org

      So there are many, many Matrix clients but the most popular one seems to be Riot which is available on iOS, Android (F-Droid, Play Store), and as a web app which you can join by clicking the link above.

      It's similar to Discord in the features it offers, but being open source I thought it might be more in the spirit of Tildes than some of the proprietary alternatives.

      That being said I'll be the first to admit Riot is a bit rough around the edges and Matrix seems to be under both heavy load and development. If there's demand for it I should be able to get a dedicated server up since it's an optionally federated service.

      Oh, and as a bonus the Matrix chat links with the Tildes IRC channels (#tildes and ##tildes) on freenode, so there's that. (Thanks @tyil)

      Don't forget to visit @Kat's wonderful ~tech wiki for links to other options such as Discord and Telegram if them's more your fancy.

      Happy wordsing!
