I've released version 2.0.0 of my RSS to ActivityPub converter! This now provides functionality I'd hacked in to - it requires OAuth 2.0 authorization for someone to create a new AP account for an RSS feed.

I used to run this service "in the open" but was overwhelmed by spammers. Now the admin of a Mastodon (or Pleroma or any federated server that is an OAuth 2 provider) can provide this converter as a service solely to members of their instance.

Despite being rendered obsolete by seven-segment LEDs, this display unit was a remarkable technical achievement - since not only was Nixon not dead at the time, he was actively serving as Vice President of the United States.
