Many large instances have been struggling to deal with the big increase in users from Reddit.
Therefor I wanted to setup this server to divide the load. I also really like hosting and managing a server, so I thought it was perfect for me
endlesstalk.org is intended to be a serious long-term instance!
Rules and info can be found in the sidebar.
- Have been built with redundancy and recoverability in mind
- Database and images are backed up every 2 hours, so there is always a fallback.
- Servers for endlesstalk.org are runing in the clould and I strive to get the best mix between stability and pricing.
If you decide to join, let me know of any issues or improvements at issues and improvements
Lastly I would appreciate any donation to cover the server costs. At the moment, its not really needed, but I would appreciate it regardless.
A tweet from the George Takei Twitter account which states:
"A Democrat was in the White House when my family was sent to the internment camps in 1941. It was an egregious violation of our human and civil rights.
It would have been understandable if people like me said they’d never vote for a Democrat again, given what had been done to us.
But being a liberal, being a progressive, means being able to look past my own grievances and concerns and think of the greater good. It means working from within the Democratic party to make it better, even when it has betrayed its values.
I went on to campaign for Adlai Stevenson when I became an adult. I marched for civil rights and had the honor of meeting Dr. Martin Luther King. I fought for redress for my community and have spent my life ensuring that America understood that we could not betray our Constitution in such a way ever again.
Bill Clinton broke my heart when he signed DOMA into law. It was a slap in the face to the LGBTQ community. And I knew that we still had much work to do. But I voted for him again in 1996 despite my misgivings, because the alternative was far worse. And my obligation as a citizen was to help choose the best leader for it, not to check out by not voting out of anger or protest.
There is no leader who will make the decision you want her or him to make 100 percent of the time. Your vote is a tool of hope for a better world. Use it wisely, for it is precious. Use it for others, for they are in need of your support, too."
The last paragraph I find particularly powerful and something more people really should take into account.
'Your Turn': United Auto Workers Launches Campaign to Unionize Tesla::After the UAW won contracts with the Big Three, it's seeking to unionize 150,000 workers across a dozen companies including Tesla.
The applicants made it clear the space wouldn’t be just for LGBTQ+ students. It would be for anyone who needs to “just breathe for a second,” said one of the students who confronted the adults Nov. 14.
The grant asks for just one thing — that they identify the sponsors, something that every grant does, one school board member reminded the room. In this case, it would be with one simple phrase anywhere in the space: “It Gets Better.”
