i'm sorry about the closure of computer fairies, but after 4 years of fighting the software and the external community, for as little upkeep as we strain ourselves to do these days, it still hangs around our necks like an anchor at high sea.

we'd love nothing more than to continue to provide the service for the few who we are thankful for continuing to stick with us through this whole journey to this day, but the financial and technical upkeep cannot be justified in its current state.

@mavica_again CF was my first instance by complete accident. I appreciate all the effort you put in and I'm sad to see it go.

@mavica_again I didn't get How Instances Work so when my gf said "you should join masto!" I just scrolled back in our FB chat and found the last post she sent me and assumed it was the instance she was on

Even though I ended up taking a hiatus and then moved to snouts (since when I came back you were gone and the local feed was too quiet), you did provide a very nice introductory space to the fedi. Thank you so much.

@mavica_again Gonna get some CF stickers and put them on my stuff to keep it close.

@synthgal i appreciate your kindness a lot. stories like that are what made running this instance all the more worthwhile

@mavica_again I don't remember much about it because my memory is literally just a bag of trash contained in my skull but I do specifically remember it being Good.
