Lemmy instance is running

So, we did actually place the Lemmy instance online
and have been playing around with it for a few days.
The fediverse is kind of neat and the content is all
over the place.

As long as people play nice and the instance doesn’t
grow to eat up too much of our network and server
resources, it’ll stick around for a bit. For the time
being it was given 512GB of disk space and 100Mbps of
network bandwidth. I think that’s fair for a trial run.

CX router reinstated and Lemmy service being worked on

After a failure on the CX router caused by our network
engineers playing with things without a backup in place,
the CX router has been reinstated running a newer firmware.
Along with the fixin’s and what not, the engineers have
also laid the groundwork for us to host games and other
small service VMs down the road. This includes NAT’d
IPv4 and native IPv6 for the networking!

Side note of some importance? Maybe, not sure yet…
We are looking into placing a Lemmy instance online for
members of MFN to make use of if they wish. There are
no concrete plans as to when the instance will come
online because the setup is a bit involved.

New Member: ProjectDeko

Hey guys,
The MFN Project is happy to announce that we have approved
and placed IPv6 allocations online for ProjectDeko. We
look forward to seeing how that project grows and what all
their lead creates as they skip along.

We also wish to be fully transparent in that ProjectDeko
is sponsoring MFN through providing us with two additional
IPv4 addresses from their /29. So, yes, both projects are
working together on different but similar end goals.
