@dzombak thank you for donating your time which is the giant hidden cost here 🤗

@samfirke heh, true. I'm honestly happy to do so, as long as other people are willing to kick in the cash.

@dzombak obviously not worth it at this level, but it'd be cool to run something like this as a coop

@bdimcheff totally! but right, at this scale I think "as simple as possible" is the right thing to do

@dzombak this is about a penny per toot, at 7.2k toots currently.
