I have a host for the pod that is great. I get enough in donations most months to keep my share of the bills in check. I personally have gone in and out of paying attention to the code base and what is going on (make sure you follow https://blog.diasporafoundation.org/). I am a computer geek and always love keeping the server going, currently debugging some Nginx to Unicorn timeout issues again, had them years

The core team has a new post no on their blog   It’s hard to believe, but we’ve been working on Diaspora for a whole year now. And I am happy to report that we’re still here, and we’re going strong.
