#rust support in VS Code with the rust-lang.rust extension is frustratingly buggy. Has anyone had a different experience?
I'm new to the idea of distributed hash tables. Question: If a project is built on top of a DHT (like @Jami), does that mean message metadata is basically open to the public? Is a DHT-based system a bad choice for people trying to avoid metadata leaks (i.e. third parties knowing who I talk to and how often)?
Giving Mastodon a go again. Had a very difficult time choosing which instance would be best, but @fosstodon seemed the most appropriate.
Linux as a daily driver for about 10 years both in my profession (web developer) as well as my hobbies. I enjoy tooling around with ham radio, building circuits, vintage electronics, and some coding on the side.
I guess the advantage of federation over fully-distributed systems is that my devices don't need to be running all the time in order for things to work.
Wishing I could have a #jami server that synced messages with my phone after an off-the-grid camping trip.
I'd like to hear some thoughts and first impressions about my new project. Is this useful? A good or bad idea? Know of any projects that already solve the same problems better? Grateful for any feedback.
