After much deliberation, it’s been decided to shut down The domain will stay up to point to online communities that relate to Chico, CA. We’ll be removing the communication services that were hosted locally. This change will happen over the next month, if you need more time, please let me know.

So I upgraded the server and swapped Riot/Matrix for on ChicoCA Chat. I think it’s a better project.

I’ve been notified that will be brought down for around an hour for maintenance on the server. Here are the dates and times for the scheduled maintenance:

2020-08-07 05:00:00 AM UTC -
2020-08-08 04:00:00 AM UTC - chicoca-main

I set up a radio for and you can find it at It's currently streaming one mix @iiogama recorded for, but eventually it will start streaming more and unique things.

I’ve updated the federation block list to include known porn, spam, and nazi instances.

I deleted and rebuilt the server, because I had accumulated a bunch of junk when I was trying to relay with other servers. Since there were only two accounts (this one and iiogama's), I figured I could do it without any impact to other ChicoCA users.

This does mean that the federated feed will be empty until people join the server and start following others.

I hope it's obvious that I won't be doing this in the future when there are other accounts.
