holy shit. I did it. It actually works.

I have spun up a Pleroma instance on... my fucking Nintendo Switch. I don't think the Switch was ever intended to be a **webserver**, but hey, it's 2019 and there are lightbulbs with CPUs built into them soooo

It can be accessed at cursed.frinkel.tech. don't sign up if you want a reliable instance, since it'll probably be down 90% of the time, since I'd actually like to use my switch to do what it was intended to do and play games. :P

"Free software is totally radical, dude. Like, see, on a proprietary operating system, you can't add your own totally bodacious code, and that's way past lame-o. They don't even let you see how it works, so they could be doing loads of uncool stuff without you knowing. I developped the GNU(GNarly Utililties) operating system so the user has the freedom to make his system as wicked sick as possible."
