Yeah, $50 doesn't begin to cover what we'd lose by letting sponsored posts into the fediverse.

The answer, again, is no.

Sooo with some additional logging on my server I confirmed it's the HTTP Signature verification failing. If I cheat and disable that on my instance, posts show up! 🎉

But apparently Go's libraries don't create a valid signature -- and neither does openssl when I call the CLI with the parameters I did. If I could figure out what arguments are passed to create the digest, I could quickly make it work. But that's enough for today too.

Follows work! Finally! I was missing the `@context` property 🤦‍♂️

Now to see about those posts.

GETting an outbox works; correct number of posts shows up. Now I guess I need to keep track of followers on my end to know where to deliver events when a new post is published.

Sometimes you have to wander out into a nearby forest to get some work done. writing.exchange/media/BIofoMO
