Is XMPP a thing of the past or do people just not use it in masses anymore? I'm looking for chats on FOSS software that are active and not dead (discounting IRC)

securesocketfunneling.github.i really cool project, lets you UDP forward among other things so if y'all are behind a NAT or something, this is a solution for you

Swear to God DeaDBeeF is damn near the best local music file player *period*.

I tried using XMPP at some points, but ended up bailing out due to lack of users. Is there a specific community of XMPP users I should look at or-?

Shower thoughts 

If a sysadmin mainly deals with managing and tending to various Unix services, does that make them a daemonologist?

Turns out Netcup in fact didn't cancel my order, so I paid for the whole year, feel optimistic about the results

Was about to order then they asked me for my ID. No thanks

There are various open source chat protocols. Each protocol has its advantages and limitations.

A protocol might be the most popular on this list, but a small percentage of the population actually uses it.

So my question is, what makes an open source chat protocol popular?

Interesting observation, my antiX Linux install on my 300 € craptop seems to get faster the more it runs. Firefox is way more responsive, and the system overall chugs less.
It's been running for two hours and it's only gotten faster.

Boy do I enjoy finishing work experience after a week and a half then waking up after a good sleep only to be even more tired

5 days off before I start with classes again, should probably pick up on more Maths.

Got a national coding competition tomorrow. Here's to hopes that my "syntax dementia" doesn't kick in.

Not entirely sure the whole Discord/Microsoft scuf is something to be 100% worried about. It's not necessarily going to work out, you know?

I'm starting IT work experience at a local high school tomorrow for the next two weeks. It's a 7-3 shift, so I gotta be up early.
I'm just hoping there isn't too much complaining, to be honest.

Recent developments, everywhere is dealt with and okay 👍 

As you may or may not know, Tusky was temporarily removed from the Google Play store, and it has since been reinstated.

We will always appeal against any removals that we see as incorrect, or fix something that we view as fixable. If for some reason the app can't stay on the Play Store we won't stop the development just because of it, we'll find other ways to reach you.

Thank you for reaching out while that whole mess was going on. 🙏
