Just joined! Glad to be part of this!
I discovered Mastodon after reading about the "Re-decentralizing the Internet" movement. It hit me right on the nose. Being a developer who's worked in media and ad tech, and someone with kids, I'm concerned about the direction we seem to be moving in. Joining this community is my first small step towards decentralization of my "personal infrastructure" and taking back ownership of our data and privacy.
Minetest 5.0 release candidate 1 (5.0.0-rc1) is now available!
This is a pre-release version which has some remaining issues. Please help us by trying it out, and reporting any issues.
I configured sshguard on my main server and holy cow, my iptables is absolutely full of hosts to drop. Crazy how many automated applications try to gain unauthorized access to computers on the internet.
This is exactly why you shouldn't use password logins for your servers and instead use SSH keys.

@evertprants Unfortunately, email is the only open standard everyone supports. Which is awful. Because it's awful.
