I've been considering check-ins with people from the fediverse, where we can log into a self-hosted video/audio/text chat and literally just check in.

We can talk about things we've read, watched or listened to. We can share our pet pictures, or talk about things we've tried for the first time. We can even share our low points, talk about issues with people who are in the same place.

Maybe a problem shared is a problem halved etc. I can only volunteer my bandwidth and cat.

Is this something that may help the isolation? If so, I can set something up.

@GigaByte4711 that sounds really lovely. Check ins help! I miss personal contact, but this is a lovely idea :)

Whitespashe Mastodon

This is a mastodon instance that allows users to share ideas and participate in discussions.

Whitespashe is named after the Admins' first joint coding project, which replaced spaces within a Word document with non-printable characters.
This would preserve readability, but would fool plagiarism detection sites such as Turnitin.
This site was named after this project, as it represents a desire to create whilst simultaneously sticking it to the Man (or in this case, the hellscape that is Twitter).

We have a hidden service frontend running at: http://whtspshcehqg4nj4wqyiopjcfxradop7ujflycxum7wkfivewqt36zyd.onion
