Techrights-secFor that I would recommend renting a very low-end VPS. Nov 02 05:51
schestowitz-TRsounds like clown computing for me and they can shut it down, citing [something]Nov 02 05:52
schestowitz-TRbtw, finished my shift at 1am, not free till satur.Nov 02 05:55
schestowitz-TR*nowNov 02 05:55
Techrights-secIn that situation, it does not matter, it is just another node.Nov 02 05:56
Techrights-secIPFS, if I understand correctly, is decentralizedNov 02 05:56
Techrights-secNot?Nov 02 05:56
Techrights-secackNov 02 05:56
schestowitz-TRwould rather convince tr supporters to set up ipfs and pin the CIDsNov 02 05:57
Techrights-secThat would be the best option but there is so little material about IPFS,Nov 02 05:59
Techrights-secor else it is just hard to understand.  No idea what it does, how it works,Nov 02 05:59
Techrights-secor most importantly how to interact with it to retrieve informationNov 02 05:59
schestowitz-TRI would do more coverage about IF I thought it did not suck... esp. suck up resources (CPU and BW)Nov 02 06:00
schestowitz-TRI would do more coverage about IPFS IF I thought it did not suck... esp. suck up resources (CPU and BW)Nov 02 06:00
schestowitz-TRwhen I put it in Tasmania the guy was a bit alarmed by how many connections it made, inc. with ChinaNov 02 06:01
Techrights-secHence the idea to look for other distributed publishing methods.Nov 02 06:03
Techrights-secBased on resource requirements IPFS does not seem to scale.Nov 02 06:03
Techrights-secAFAIK you get lots of connections from China if you do anything out of theNov 02 06:03
Techrights-secordinary. Even running a Tor middle relay will get you probed activelyNov 02 06:03
Techrights-secby Chinese addresses, some very slow and subtle others rather blatant and noisyNov 02 06:03
schestowitz-TRpeople have come to assume connection is attack is breach... Microsoft media teaches them thisNov 02 06:04

schestowitz-TRnews getting drier each moonth, but we are copingNov 02 16:40
Techrights-secI guess so.  But it certainly is drying up.  I was just noticing that againNov 02 16:42
Techrights-sectoday it has gone down further.Nov 02 16:42
Techrights-secPatents of any kind are not covered. Nov 02 16:42
schestowitz-TRIt has gotten LAUGHABLY bad, esp. in patentsNov 02 16:42
Techrights-secAnd now that it is too late, the press is starting to mention JA and his trial.Nov 02 16:42
Techrights-secAnyway, the weekly pool of available articles seems to have shrunk againNov 02 17:08
Techrights-secquite a bit.  Nov 02 17:08
schestowitz-TRI compensate for it by 1) posting Daily Links more often (BTW, the CMS feed recently added... still nothing coming from it, not sure if technical issue), 2) subscribing to lesser known sites for gnu/linux howtos and stuffNov 02 17:09
schestowitz-TR*CMDNov 02 17:09
Techrights-sec I wonder how much further it will decline before they decideNov 02 17:11
Techrights-secto stop pretending that there is new service at all.  I remember a long timeNov 02 17:11
Techrights-secago, at the turn of the century, there was *lots* of news daily just about Nov 02 17:11
Techrights-secFOSS and GNU/Linux alone.Nov 02 17:11
Techrights-secYes, I try to check blogs these days.  There are many with RSS or Atom feeds.Nov 02 17:11
schestowitz-TRlxer and 'linux' 'today' became very bad. Many links to howtos, usually from over 5 years agoi. WHAT IS THE POINT?Nov 02 17:11
Techrights-secI've lost track of all the sites that turned to crap and / or vanished.Nov 02 17:13
Techrights-secZDNet used to be great, now it's drivel at best. Nov 02 17:13
Techrights-secThey had a handful of people writing about FOSS and GNU/Linux in particular.Nov 02 17:13
schestowitz-TR"no money in it..."Nov 02 17:13
Techrights-sec.Nov 02 17:15

schestowitz-TR"one of the best and brightest"Nov 02 21:03
schestowitz> It’s  a pleasant thought to think that after I am below ground someone above ground will be making good use of some of my better postings. Although it’s an easy task for me, i must say it takes a lot of skill to do the job. When you loosened the reins a bit on using pictures is when I started to really enjoy posting. The right picture enhances the text and being able to use Photo Elements and Pic Monkey was the icing on the cake.Nov 02 21:31
schestowitzYour 'competition' may decrease over time because many sites perish, leaving just some junk in sites like Facebook, where little is visible to the outside.Nov 02 21:31
