acme + sqlite is already shaping up to be a much better SQL experience than that huge mess of Java that is Oracle's SQL Developer

@ajroach42 @lesbianhacker @alcinnz I wasn't very serious, but don't mistake my disagreement for incomprehension. We have email and file transfers; have had since the UUCP and FIDO days; and those things are not broken and are the core applications. I don't think needing new application areas is really the top issue for non-realtime networks. It is true that "social networking" doesn't seem well served by them but I think we might do better to just not have that, than to try hard to build it.

@ajroach42 @alcinnz @lesbianhacker Email is *the* core application of UUCP, and client software always used to support UUCP-style email addresses just fine. Maybe there are some new email clients that don't, but going back to the older clients wouldn't require all that much new software.

The Web, yes, is something we can't do without realtime networking. But it's basically dead at this point anyway as browsers have changed from reading documents to executing code.

@mattskala @ajroach42 @lesbianhacker And, by the way, I do like to advocate for transitioning back to a Web without clientside scripting.

Le 4e jeu des #ergogames est sorti et c'est moi qui l'ai développé avec mes petites mimines 👐 (premier jeu en 10 ans d'informatique alors que j'étais parti là-dedans pour faire des jeux #originalité #ilétaittemps)

Le principe des Ergogames est de vous faire découvrir des principes d'ergonomie à travers des mini-jeux et c'est imaginé par deux anciennes collègues.

Which browser is consuming much more power than competitive ones? @3rik presenting interesting numbers and thoughts on #digital #sustainability in connection with #FreeSoftware at the @fsfe GA.

So, what's your guess?

Shamar boosted

@mxmehl @3rik @fsfe All I know is that there's far more code/features in all the browser engines than I'd like. I've looked.

@eff ayup. It's not a question of "do you trust the government?" but a question of "do you trust all possible future governments?". If not, it doesn't matter what decent people are *collecting* the data now.

the thing about blockchains is that they don't work *at all* in an off-grid scenario. i don't think there's anything to gain from excluding blockchain solutions from tracker, but they won't be in core because we want to have robust support for off-grid scenarios.

Does anyone here have a really crazy project on github I can collaborate to?

Free software doesn't have to mean a design free-for-all.

HTML is fragmented and has market share because Worse Is Better, and it has been very productive. But we are not talking about what's more productive.

We are talking about what's conceptually clean, usable and programmable for the casual end user, grokkable. HTML is not it.

With what we have learned from over two decades of web, we are armed with the knowledge to create a Better Is Better alternative.
