Instance updates 

Hi everyone

Sorry that this weekend has been so terrible for downtime

Changes:

* We have switched to masto.host
* We are now running Mastodon v 3.0.1

Upsides:

* We are now Amazon-free
* We don't have to pay for both a VPS and AWS, which reduces the costs of running the instance
* Less down-time when it's time to do an upgrade

Downsides:

* Unfortunately, we no longer support LaTeX in posts, unless it's incorporated into mainline Masto

Thanks for your patience, everyone!

@socrates What happened to the beautiful little site icon? It has been replaced with the standard mastodon icon.

@drbjork It was a casualty of our migration to a new host, I'm afraid :(
