There's not many instances out there that's dedicated explicitly to disseminating honest to god original content, directly from the authors of said content.
You don't have to like the stuff, but curb your contempt. Shitposting and reposting memes from other places is good and all, but original hand-made images and videos is what gives a platform its soul.
I just spent 15 minutes setting up this instance to prove it can be done. total cost to set up this instance - $0.00 upfront, $0.00 recurring
the domain (pl.poo.li) came for free from afraid.org public subdomain registry and is free for me to use as long as the person who owns the root domain renews it (look for domains with high ages if you are using this method)
the VPS hosting is free on the always free tier from Oracle. they offer free trials and when you sign up for always free tier you get a trial of the other services as well. these instances are 1 full CPU core (2 threads) on AMD EPYC server grade CPU with 1GB ram (1GB swap) and 50GB of hdd space. the caveat to them always being free is the disk speed is limited to 50MB/s and the network bandwidth is limited to 50mbps in/out. a single user or a handful of users would not notice this under normal circumstances.
I will likely write up a guide this weekend but this is just proof it can be done. thank you for coming to my tedtalk
Yeah it's been over a decade, somehow this monolithic, opinionated display protocol still doesn't have anything to say about colour management (yet), which basically makes Wayland useless for professional use cases like illustration, photography and VFX.
As long as these use cases aren't accounted for in baseline Wayland, then the catchphrase "every frame is perfect" is literally a myth.
You read that right.
