Each link off the main page would have its own file, that gets updated and synchronized with each post.
- Gab can be censored or taken offline
@Tenpoundbass What would be in each of these files?
Or maybe you'd be introduce to friends of people who are on the same server, because you all know the guy who is paying the $5/month. So that would be kind of social.
But html is pretty simple and people all have browsers.
- decentralization, resistant to censorship - completely private to your friends (ssh has good privacy)- every friend would have a local copy of everything via rsync, so the server could be easily re-created if somehow destroyed- you can't delete anyone else's work, nor can they delete yours- relatively easy to set up- easy to use via web interface without ever needing a web server anywhere- no advertising- cheap- no dns to pay for or to have cut off- no ssl certificate required- works offline! you can still view anything and create content when you're not connected, and then rsync to put/get the latest
late 90's era
I recall the bulletin board system back in the 1980s and using my Commodore 64.
Question, what if people "remove friend", will that still work due to how certificates work?No login thing seems like it would be very confusing for many people, especially for people like me with multiple computers, i have a phone and computer and I use two different logins on both because it's hard to remember random password or transfer one to another.
we develop a Social Network Transport Protocol
Just need to figure out a way to prevent a browser which has loaded a page from the local filesystem from using the network at all. We just want to browse the files we have downloaded from the server with rsync
You are at the mercy of some Commie dirt bag, depersoning you, and demanding that your registrar, and hosting company dump you if they don't like you.
1)Facebook type apps need physical storage space and cpu cycles/electricity to run. That takes money.
