pump.saz.im and Pumpa development shutting down

I’ve decided to shut down my home server at the end of August (i.e., in about two months). This also means, unfortunately, that my pump.io server pump.saz.im will go down, thus ending my presence on the pump.io network. I know I could move to one of the public pump.io servers out there, but I’m also trying to consolidate my “social media” presence – and Mastodon seems to be winning out for me. You can find me on Mastodon as sazius@soc.ialis.me. (I’ve also recently deleted my Twitter and Facebook accounts, of course for even better reasons…)

This decision also means that I’m no longer actively maintaining or developing Pumpa, the Qt-based pump.io client that I created. It doesn’t make sense for me to work on something that I don’t use anymore. If anyone is interested in continuing Pumpa development, I would definitely be open to transferring maintainership. Anyway, the source code will always be out there if anyone wants to use it. For a good and actively maintained pump.io desktop client, I recommend people instead use Dianara by @JanKusanagi.

I still love the pump.io community, it has been a lot of fun over the years! Perhaps we can link up again once ActivityPub federation works.

I posted a very similar message in my pump.io feed, but as that server is disappearing soon I put it here as well for posterity.
