@mxsiege i remember reading an article once that boasted entire towns had been relocated out of its path; madness

@technomancy yeah, but, like, game over is that scene from The Motion Picture and i've already got enough on my conscience

Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?

I am a big supporter of Small Tech: three line shell scripts, gopher holes, when websites render properly on a VIC-20, building your new PC tower out of the 10 year old PCs your neighbours recently discarded, solving your own problems without worrying about scale.

@gamehawk @js290 what about the sms/email gateways? some of those still work. niece would be able to email [your number]@some.carrier.url and you'd get the text.

hey y'all remember when I encoded the hit film Hackers (1995) in 8M? and how it was entirely unrecognizable, low resolution, low framerate, and had no audio?

well, since then, Mastodon has upped its media limit to 40M

so, I present to you: Hackers (1995) in 40M, with sound, at 24FPS and full resolution! encoded with state-of-the-art tools and codecs for your viewing pleasure
