sazius and Pumpa development shutting down

sazius at

I've decided to shut down my home server at the end of August (i.e., in about two months). This also means, unfortunately, that my server will go down, thus ending my presence on I know I could move to one of the public servers out there, but I'm also trying to consolidate my "social media" presence - and Mastodon seems to be winning out for me. You can find me on Mastodon as (I've also recently deleted my Twitter and Facebook accounts, of course for even better reasons...)

This decision also means that I'm no longer actively maintaining or developing Pumpa, the Qt-based client that I created. It doesn't make sense for me to work on something that I don't use anymore. If anyone is interested in continuing Pumpa development, I would definitely be open to transferring maintainership. Anyway, the source code will always be out there if anyone wants to use it. For a good and actively maintained desktop client, I recommend people instead use Dianara by @JanKusanagi.

It has been fun over here, and I still love the community. Perhaps we can link up again once the ActivityPub flows (or pumps) all around :-)

Hopefully, ActivityPub federation isn't too far off!

Yes, I'm also eagerly waiting for that day!
