As I'm starting to use Mastodon more and more,
I'm also learning more about how the underlying ActivityPub protocol works.
Using the WebFinger protocol my domain now acts as an alias for my actual Mastodon account.
It has become a tradition for me to look at the year that's about to end.
I did so in 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014.
Let's look at 2022 now.
Every year Advent of Code happens.
Every year I'm not super enthusiastic to actually solve those challenges.
Every year I still start (and then maybe stop after some days).
Everyone and their dog is getting on ActivityPub.
Yes, me too, for now.
Mastodon is what everyone is going for,
but running an instance is kinda resource intensive
and I really don't want to be responsible for yet another service.
Back in 2018 I handed over maintenance for various (hi)redis projects to different people.
I retained access to some repositories and packages, but purely out of caution.
