@agocs What do you think we should do with this? By this I mean the route66?

@jon I'm thinking make a silk-road style drug marketplace.

I get the feeling we're not getting the kind of utilization out of this that we thought we would. If you don't want to put up the $30/year to renew route66, I don't think anyone would blame you.

@agocs But I worked so hard to link my ID here ;)

But yeah, maybe there's no point.

@jon You've got this domain through Jan 1 2020, right?

@agocs Aye, through the end of the year.

@agocs I think I’m going to keep running this. If only for the principle of it. I need to upgrade it though and right now I’m not sure how to do that without blasting the current DB. I can always snapshot, but, not sure the path forward for upgrade yet.

@jon I wish you all the best. My impression of the Mastodon stack is that it's way more complicated than it has any right to be for something that average folks are supposed to be able to run. Good on you for taking it on.

@agocs I think it wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't waited so long btwn upgrades.
