I want a Web where CDNs are unnecessary.

Where different organizations, different website operators, can help each other out by hosting assets for each others' websites, thus spreading the load across many orgs in solidarity, instead of centralizing it in gatekeepers.

I've had this idea for years. The problem always was: how do I trust third party operators with my website's assets?

I believe I might slowly be getting to a point of having a decent answer to that question.

No blockchain required.

@rysiek True.

How about IPFS? It seems to be supported by a few browsers now and for the other browsers there are extensions.

@thegibson Find the nearest old-school electronics store and spend 1-2h in there!

Did that between the years. Owner said hello and instantly knew that I don’t need anything really and was just looking at and touching old computers and peripherals - Had a really great afternoon in there.

@thegibson Have you tried FreeCIV?


I recently got started on Endless Sky - Neat game with a big ole Galaxy to explore.


@obsolete29 @iron_bug Get your joke. However, I doubt that we all are able to produce a more secure router than even the mainstream vendors do. Writing secure code is rather hard. Especially without proper training.

I fully agree with the auto-update ON philosophy. There are billions of devices connected to the Internet these days. I would guess that only 10% of them are managed by IT professionals.

Recently, I've discovered some really interesting procedurally generated 1-bit patterns online. So, as one does, I decided to make my own version of them by building a custom stack-based DSL.

This one is based on a pattern by Foldster (on Twitter), created using this expression:

x y + abs x y - abs 1 + ^ 2 << 3 % !

Who of you defenders does something out of the ordinary for egress traffic filtering?
