Mastodon Streaming Fix


There was a misconfiguration that caused streaming to not work on mastodon.cyborgcentral.net that has been fixed. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. As always, if anything is broken on CC or any of CC's sub-sites, please let me know.

Sustainability Re/CC


OpenSource.com has a really good article about sustainability up, focused around the sudden popularity of Mastodon, and how us FOSS people can keep things going for the foreseeable future, by participating in distributed systems.
