I just opened registrations on the alpha version of my new self-hosting-oriented cloud service provider, Greenhouse!

You can check it out, sign up for an account, and download the CLI or desktop application here:

--> greenhouse-alpha.server.garden <--

If you are interested in learning about self-hosting, please try it out and let me know what you think!

I'm not publishing this on blast yet! I'm not quite ready for the unwashed masses yet, so please don't re-share this for now. A full public release will come soon!!

These are gonna be HTTP error pages too. Consider "504 Gateway Timeout"

Today I heard from @handle that the next NLNet grant application deadline is in 4 days -- I also learned that this year they have a new category called "User Operated Internet". I got really excited about this because the last time I applied to the NLNet grant program, there wasn't really a good category for my project to fit under. But "User Operated Internet" is perfect!

I spent today throwing up a rough draft of a home page for my project. In the past I have called it Greenhouse, but I am thinking now I'm going to change the name to Server Garden, because the original thing that was going to be called Server Garden is now on hiatus.

Please take a look and let me know what you think! I know it has tons of issues, but I'm still interested to hear what folks think about it:

my favorite co-host decided to join me today. he blends into my shirt lol

I was able to modify owncast to stream HLS segments that are outputted by OBS directly instead of re-encoding the video on the server -- got it down to 10 seconds stream delay in my experimental test!

Smol server part of the pixie.town infrastructure. Registration is approval-based, and will probably only accept people I know elsewhere or with good motivation.
