#Blender is now running the latest version of #peertube! Follows were weird before due to the old version but are working perfectly now! If you are a peertube admin, follow it!

Glad to help out and I'll be helping with this instance going forward.

Please boost!

The latest version of Site.js took me four months to release not just because of general world-wide what-the-fuckery but also because I wrote a Let’s Encrypt library for Node.js called Auto Encrypt from scratch.
