I just rediscovered my first self-hosted fediverse instance mb.byzero.de, if laconi.ca counts as fediverse.

It does for me a bit and I still regret that I stopped continuing the journey with status.net to pump.io to the other things that eventually ended up in mastodon.

But it’s ok. 15 years ago would have been the best time, the second best time is today to be on the fediverse!
