Hi everyone!

Just joined Fosstodon and I hope to meet all kinds of people. 👋
I'm mainly interested in web dev and web design, but I like to tinker with nearly everything.

This time on the podcast, @dos from @purism talks about his Die Hard GNU/Linux User On Phones life. How he's developing lots of great things for Phoc/Phosh, the Librem 5 and how he implemented his personal dream of shrinking windows that he had since the Openmoko days.

@sudoedit managed hosting is just so cheap that it doesn't make sense for me to run it on my servers IMO. Makes it easier to nuke an install if it doesn't contain my important emails.

So now the question is... do I need to host my own email? This is a question I ask myself fairly regularly, but have never attempted. I have no doubt that I could do it...

Thank you to the people who still watch my Minetest Mineclone videos. Here is another episode.

Five years of seems to have gone by so quickly, and in the time it's been here it's done so much more than @kev and I anticipated. Thank you everybody in the Fosstodon community who have helped make it more than we ever expected it could be!

@RL_Dane There are some VERY light (terminal) clients out there for Matrix, but that protocol is always going to be slow imo.

@ru what are your biggest issues with it?

@ru from a user perspective it definitely comes short, but I like it a heck of a lot more than Matrix. \o/ all it really needs is a snazzy client for every device.

@ru the server plays in to the clients sluggishness, so it's all a factor.

@ru I've been trying for a long time, assuming it'll get better eventually. At this point I think I've run out of personal patience. I'm sticking to XMPP where everything seems to work for me.

Its just too slow, and the only way to make it run efficiently is by throwing so much hardware at it that it becomes unrealistic as a truly decentralized SELF-HOSTABLE protocol.

I have to say, after disappointing me for a couple of years now, I might have finally given up on the Matrix protocol.

I think I'll be moving my public mumble server from to today. Seems like a more fitting use for the domain.
