a digital community for socializing, learning, and making cool stuff

tilde.team is a shared system that provides an inclusive, non-commercial space for teaching, learning, practicing and enjoying the social medium of unix.

i created this tilde after hearing about paul ford's tilde.club. when i was unable to join due to the waitlist, i decided to create my own tilde.

thanks for stopping by!

tilde.team is a founding member of tildeverse.org, which is a collaborative effort among several other tilde servers.

hosting and domains are paid out-of-pocket. tilde.team will always be free to use. however, if you are able and willing to pitch in, you can donate here.

happy 7th birthday, tilde.team!

may 30 2024ben

my, how time flies!

somehow seven years have passed since i set up tilde.team.

life has been a bit busy lately and i haven't had as much time as i would like to spend on tilde stuff. luckily, most things seem to keep running with little interference and folks keep making cool stuff and building community.

if you haven't been around in a while, stop by! ssh in, update your homepage, and maybe even pop in to irc to say hi :)

happy birthday tilde.team!

see ya around the interwebs, ~ben

ubuntu 22.04 upgrades

september 25 2022ben

i completed the upgrade to ubuntu 22.04 today!

this one was relatively easy, only a couple things to sort out.

got all kinds of new software with this one, including stuff like ruby 3, php 8.1, and python 3.10.

it's likely that you will have to recreate any python virtualenvs or any similar locally-downloaded deps.

holler if you notice anything amiss on irc or the mailing list!

5 years of tilde.team

may 31 2022ben

as of may 30 tilde.team is 5 years old!

the early days were hectic and the memories for me are a bit hazy so i'm going off the date that the domain was registered. according to WHOIS info:

Creation Date: 2017-05-30T20:25:48Z

at the time of writing (one day late) we have 1224 members. 219 people have logged in since the last reboot.

i'm not particularly good at words but tilde.team has been a massive part of my life over the last 5 years and i'm so grateful for all you folks who make it fun and enjoyable to hang out here.

keep on making cool things and see ya 'round!
