All Patreon donations go 100% towards server costs, etc. I don't take any of that for myself.
Running a somewhat popular instance, moderating it, doing all the maintenance and upgrades, responding to emails and DMs and mentions... It's a lot. It's manageable, but a lot.
If you want to throw a few bucks my way I just set up a Ko-fi
Multiple people donated towards the server costs (y'all are great <3) but the lack of a central place to donate was a problem, so I decided to create a Patreon.
Every contribution helps!
If you wish to donate a different way please send me a message
Oh, a new Mastodon report. Better deal with that immediately to keep my community safe.

apparently "you need to move out of your apartment because you're flying to Pakistan in a few days" is the amount of motivation i needed to sort shit out
(No, I'm not a communist, or a supporter of Stalin, or Russia invading other countries, or have any intetest in Sri Lankan politics, but the coincidences are noteworthy)
Today, on the anniversary of Russia invading Georgia in 2008, and being the day Sri Lanka arrested an opposition politican called Joseph Stalin, me and a Russian friend went to Stalin's Underground Printing House Museum and drank alcohol with a former member of the KGB.
None of this was planned or predicted, but what a hell of a day.
