If I want to run a Calckey instance, what do I need?

I have no idea if my friends will ever make the switch, but I want to offer a space. At most I've ever done is shared hosting (my site runs on WordPress). I'm not considering any Mastodon software at all. I might consider Pixelfed as well. What do I need to know, to set up a Calckey (or Pixelfed) instance in terms of: - what to look for in hosting - what technical knowledge do I need to know or find people who know - where are the admins getting their blocklists these days - related, where do admins mingle to communicate all these management stuff - any movements on the legal liability side of things?

Story about a guy who trapped opossums and released them near his house?

A few days ago there was a post on the blue about opossums. It made me remember the funny story I saw online in the last few years, sort of a This American Life-type story or maybe a Twitter thread, about a guy who got a job or started a business trapping and releasing unwanted opossums that were in people's yards.

Processing donations

Do you have experience using Patreon or competitors (Ko-fi, OnlyFans, other?). How did you pick which service to use? How did you research the costs to you? Especially interested in communities/organizations experiences but will take any advice or ideally a link to a side by side comparison around price, ease of use, etc.

Paris (Bastille-ish) secure short term bike parking options?

We are taking our bikes to France to ride in the countryside (yay), but first we will be in Paris for a few days. We are not able to store our bikes at our hotel in Bastille. It seems like there are a few bike storage rental options (train stations, private garages), but it is hard to tell how secure they are. If you have experience dealing with Paris bike storage, what was it like?

Where can I find the most private privacy screen filter for my S 10+?

I know little about filters and how they function, but I don't want people to be able to see/read my phone screen. I have a decent one from Amazon called LYWHL, but there are even better "4-way" filters or reduced angle filters like one by dipos in Germany, but I can't find any available in USA for shipping soon. Recommend me a good privacy screen filter for my S10+ please!

Help me find this famous zen saying, in calligraphy?

Visiting Osaka, we went to a tea museum which had a calligraphic hanging scroll inside which was called something like "Ro-Ko-Sui" and has a famous zen saying on it about the "humble owl." It's something about the importance of staying humble yet highly capable as a zen priest. Could you point me to it? Haven't been able to find anything on google. [more inside]

Anybody remember a cartoon from the 60s — New Yorker or possibly Playboy — with this caption? The speaker was an older, tweedy academic.

A friend and I have pretty much played ourselves out on Scrabble/Upwords word-based games and are looking for a new game to take their place. Numbers based games would be welcome, but in general something with massive replay-value where each game takes a few days would be ideal. Suggestions?
