would be nice for bike trips tho bc it's all flat around there

* Thin-client protocols like Matrix or XMPP are going to typically use way less battery and bandwidth than maintaining a full p2p mesh on a mobile device, which is generally desirable. The way to fix that in p2p is to introduce master nodes of some flavour... at which point you're back in a hybrid p2p/federated architecture again.

* A thin-client-first approach also means that you can easily support different clients (and bots/bridges etc) rather than the client being tightly coupled to a complicated p2p protocol.

To repeat: i'm advocating a hybrid p2p/decentralised approach - not religiously pure decentralisation, nor religiously pure p2p either.

A very good comment yesterday from one of the lead #Matrix developers:

> What are the benefits of decentralized servers over p2p?

* A server-based system gives you a well-defined secure place to keep an always-on copy of your data, with whatever physical/geographic/network security model you prefer... rather than smearing it across a bunch of handsets or laptops which could get lost/stolen/run-out-of-storage etc.

The website is in Spanish but if you want to work here I can help with an English translation because why not?

@rixx

To be fair, 5.7.0 is not stable, you have to actively install it as 'next' tag.

Mostly people crying about having to run a pre-release version as root...and some people hating that two queer women are running the show.

Stay classy bros

@theotix Sure. Also don't merge code that reassigns recursively the ownership of folders you don't own and put it in a pre-release.

ATTENTION, Public Service Announcement: Do not upgrade your npm. Do not upgrade to 5.7.0, released yesterday.

It changes file permissions of /etc, /boot, /user, … when run with sudo. Avoid, duck, cover, whimper.

I may have to code in PHP in the near future.

Oh oh.

I want to make DEEP COPIES ALL THE TIME.

FUCK JAVASCRIPT.

A Vim plugin to toot on mastodon.

Like REPL execution plugins.

Select and toot.

tap -> Toot a paragraph
tas -> Toot a sentence

I can imagine all the coordinate transform stuff I need to do just fine, but converting that into code is always a pain.

@victorhck Eres la persona adecuada yo creo.
Cuentas cosas sobre OpenSUSE y tienes bastante alcance.
Así puedes sacar a alguno de su mierda de curro y darle opciones.
