@wim I've had a single person instance on Pleroma ... got pretty big after few months

@wim is Postgres running there, too? I wonder how those boxes deal with the bloated way the messages are stored in the DB (especially with Pleroma)


If any other network model claims to be superior, it should be tried on real links in the wild and at a scale.

Eh, CJDNS would work fine as a replacement for BGP, but lots of other systems would too. Maybe some adjustments yeah, but nothing those full time salaried programmers with control of those real backbone routers in the wild couldn’t iron out. IMO the only real reason BGP is still a thing is money, politics and inertia.

Had peer connections been on real layer 1/2 links, the need for dynamic routing would probably become apparent.

Uh… it is? CJDNS does dynamic routing. I think it even does roaming.

If one is freeriding on the exisiting Intenet one should not pretend they are not an overlay network.

I think I haven’t made myself clear. CJDNS has an interface for operating on the existing Internet. It also has an interface for discovering and peering with locally available ethernet devices. It can operate on mesh networks without issue. The only reason for “freeriding” on the internet is financial. It has nothing to do with the network model, or the quality of the code.

@djsundog let's see how far @mntmn fares, you could port CP/M not only to i.MX 8 ARM CPU but also ATmega MCUs deployed within.

@edsu I think I am going to start using that term from now on!

@edsu I like that you referred to large social media users as their "subjects"... (6:16)

@djsundog I bought a special USB hub from Sabrent for this (but no GPIO). There is also uhubctl tool available, but not all hubs are compatible.

Finished my 2020 project.

Let me call it .

It closes the loop between my starting point in 1986 and now. Like a Terminator time line, just backwards.

It's an Atari 800XL on a USB powerbank, video output captured into a Raspi on a 2nd powerbank.

Visuals inspired by Alien movie where computers look like they should. Released in 1979, the year of Atari 800.

I have rarely felt more satisfied.

oh my god omar.website/tabfs/

“TabFS is a browser extension that mounts your browser tabs as a filesystem on your computer.”

“Now you don't need to code up a browser extension from scratch every time you want to do anything. You can write a script that talks to your browser in, like, a melange of Python and bash, and you can save it as a single ordinary file that you can run whenever, and it's no different from scripting any other part of your computer.”

@stephaniewalter @deejoe but then I wonder what is the business model of companies behind products like Thermomix or Cookit - they appear to want to have whole "app stores" filled with non-copyrightable recipes... what are they? trade secrets?

(full disclosure: I am contracting to one of these - but I honestly don't know)

@jackyan I don't know how do you monitor this but HitCounters got removed later mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1 - you can carefully migrate to the extension, it also uses cache for better perfomance

@solene I feel you. I'm facing the same dilemma, and I resolve it by:

defaulting to English;
being deliberate about other languages. For example, I write my ICFPC reports in Russian because I want to popularize the contest among Russian-speaking programmers;
using other outlets for my other languages. For example, I participate in a Russian-speaking community of programmers, and also translate my software project into Ukrainian.

@Gina pixelfed or it didn't happen

@cy Regarding social relationship as a network goal - aren't today's peering arrangements working like this? They have an advantage that BGP exchange forms a layer on top of the dynamic routing (IGP and real routing tables I'd say). And yes, you have to know a directly connected IP address of your peer!
