Pleased to announce that the official instance now has support for images and media uploads. We currently have 2tb of storage set aside on a ZFS file system for all of our data. I’ll continue to admin the system, blog about it, and come up with a compelling open source privacy policy for us. In the mean time - please send cat/dog pics!
