(#6ouob5a) @lyse Maybe, have a single computer fan removing the H2S smells from pit compost toilet, a room about 1.5 by 1.0 by 1.5m and this fan works 247 has done for 4 years, plus AGM lead acid battery for 4 years, remarkable really. No dead battery after 4 yrs, but it daily cycles to 95% fully charged each day.

I will see how this room stands up, two fans on 247, size 4 by 2.8 by 2.0m.


(#t7a55bq) If some regional pods can get going. They could each periodically have an in-person social event to fundraise to keep their server online (may have other services like pixelfed and peertube). If the events are successful, the organisers should direct some funds to the developers.

@vain (#vjmprgq) The benefit is actually on remote feeds and their “server”(s). By using ETag and/or If-Modified-Since you reduce the potential for unwanted full fetches of remote feeds. (_something I’ve gotten in trouble with @EvilBob myself and promptly fixed). The other solution to this os to use Range requests (something I plan to add to twtd at some point)

(#t7a55bq) @jlj Appreciate your candidate questions. Let me do my best to answer…

Short-Medium term goals:

  • Fund development of a new Mobile App that is sustainable for the currently development team.
  • Continue development of intra-pod features, without breaking the Twtxt ecosystem.


  • A not-for-profit org that can continue to expand:
    • (or whatever) fully managed pod hosting.
    • A set of geographical pods (which require a combination of pair and volunteer staff to manage)
    • Ongoing development, maintenance.

Does this help answer your q’s?

📣 Hey Twtizens! 👋 We would love some feedback from you all on how we can monetize so we can fund ongoing development and maintenance of

So far we’ve got:

  • GitHub sponsors (1 so far! Thank you @jlj ! 🙇‍♂️)
  • Patreon sponsors

As you all know, I am very much against selling data for advertising — so I would appreciate not going down that rabbit hole!

All feedback is greatly welcomed and appreciated! 🤗

Hopefully this is hooked up OK, hard to confirm this on the Internet, as not much about Ni-Fe battery banks around. But I ran across a few images the same as mine.

@xuu @thewismit @jlj The next time you upgrade your pod, it will terminate with an error if you have not properly configured a few things. It will tell you what you’re missing of course. Pay attention to this 😀 I’m also trying to make configuring SMTP_ optional, but for the time being this needs to be valid too (or at least filled out and different from the defaults). This is mostly important for sensitive/secret material, mostly *_SECRET, e.g: COOKIE_SECRET, API_SIGNING_KEY and MAGICLINK_SECRET.
