@imncls i don't want all data to be centralized at one service like github, so I host my own gitlab.

@lain btw why are you using gitlab instead of github?

Mastodon: 12GB 71.5% Used
Pleroma: 1GB 27.5% Used

@kensanata @starbreaker this really shouldn't be a thing people think

That is my life goal, and that is why I am pouring my heart and soul and years of my life in to Adélie Linux. Installing a package should be easy and fun, sort of like iOS. Muon (Kubuntu's GUI package manager) gets close but not close enough.

@awilfox @starbreaker There are alternatives, of course. They're just not as easy to deliver as a web page. You can run Bitlbee with the Mastodon plugin and use an IRC client in a terminal for Mastodon. The problem is that the web facilitates delivery so much we forget how tricky the alternative will be: installers, packages, setup, everything is harder. wiki.bitlbee.org/HowtoMastodon

@starbreaker we need a masto app that doesn't require entire kitchen sinks/a web browser

Same with chat, things like GitLab, etc

Everyone in their glass towers, spoiled by their high salaries and ubiquitous city fibre connections, sees the web and thinks it "runs everywhere".

I know and help rural people who have computers with 512 MB RAM that barely run Mint and can't open browsers due to memory. They use AbiWord and claws mail, and that's it. Think of what they're missing.

@awilfox I literally don't get paid enough for that shit. :)

How much software do we actually need, anyway? Isn't there already a shitload of good software freely available?

WHY DOES LITERALLY NOBODY WRITE SOFTWARE ANY MORE

THE WEB MUST DIE.

@Trev I get too caught up in the planning and never get around to actually doing ._.

how the fuck do people *consistently* create these things anyway???

@Elizafox or even better:

- don't allow a password to login (use Google, Facebook, twitter Auth.)
- Secure the damn DNS with DNSSEC
- use HTTPS

@Elizafox I'd change that to require ssl always and "always use bcrypt" because bcrypt makes it very difficult to get password hashing wrong.
