Hi! I've been using Mastodon for about a year now, having gone through two problematic instances. Hopefully this one will be reliable/stable enough to stay on for a long time 😅. I work as a senior systems engineer in North Carolina, and have been exclusively using Linux for 14 years now. Things I like: museums, 1980s horror films, IPv6, maintaining AUR packages, Ruby, RTL-SDR, and music on the Warp, Skam, and Ninja Tune record labels.

ok. I may set up a separate playground Mastodon instance and put it behind cloudflare just to see what happens, but I'll not be putting infosec.exchange behind it (unless some unforeseen event demands it).

Just to be clear - I'm interested in whether moving the instance behind cloudflare improves user experience, particularly in terms of performance. Early comments are that it's just a bad idea.

Anyone have experience setting up Mastodon behind cloudflare?

#introduction

I'm a software engineer / web developer. I'm working on internal software at my company built in #angular. I have been in the web/software industry for about 9 years.

I also have experience in #php, #javascript, #nodejs, #react, and #python.

I'm currently interested in learning about #security, including #appsec, #osint, #opsec, and anything else #infosec related. My current goal is to start researching for #bugbounty programs and start a blog about the bugs I find.

What happened with witches.town? I see they are shutting down.

Had a blast teaching at my friend’d group. Walked through what hacking into a corporation and person looks like. Then taught tools to prevent those hacks.

Had normal folks downloading and using password wallets, multifactor authentication, and Signal very quickly.

A couple deleted some choice public facebook and twitter posts :P
