I've got a question about hub.toot.cat - what are your intentions when it comes to continued maintenance of hub.toot.cat (and other servers on this droplet)? I've been thinking, and it makes more sense for me to pool financial and time resources with someone else than just do the self-reliance thing with my own server.
So, I'd rather share in the costs and sysadmin effort on hub.toot.cat rather than just go it alone, myself. That only makes sense if your intentions are to keep hub.toot.cat around for years.
I'm still going to try installing hubzilla on one of my Microsoft Azure Ubuntu VMs, isaackuo.centralus.cloudapp.azure.com, as a backup where we can "clone" our stuff. However, this VM is really wimpy in specs, and it's attached to my MSDN account which I may not keep long term, necessarily. As such, this is really just a backup.
Oh, and thanks again for spinning up hub.toot.cat!
