[type: feature] remove unused contrib files xj9 >>35e91148b1e3a39e30 [Reply]
[delete]

i'd like to have one theme, no extra frontends. srndv2 and nntpchan aren't especially large programs, but there are a lot of contrib modules in lua, python, and php that we don't need at all.

let's try to keep track of something xj9 >>80f76b71aed16133ac [Reply]

so the idea of this message board is to have a p2p messaging system that we can use to coordinate whatever projects we want to be working on. anyone can create a topic which will be replicated to everyone in the network. spam control works based on consensus since content is difficult to delete unless everyone removes it. this is a feature. lost data is no bueno. the consensus ui is not the best, so that's something that we can address. 

i think an adhoc tagging system is a good way to go. down

what aboud identity? Anonymous >>b4d515a794e69b1770 [Reply]

i'm not certain how important identity is in here. maybe going anon would be a good thing? focusing on ideas over people is possibly a good reason. maybe it can be a per-topic thing. not really important to enforce.

Once upon a time there was a young prince who believed in all things but three. He did not believe in Princesses, he did not believe in islands, he did not believe in God. His father, the king, told him that such things did not exist. As there were no princesses or islands in his father's domains, and no sign of God, the prince believed his father. 

But then, one day, the prince ran away from his palace and came to the next land. There, to his astonishment, from every coast he saw islands, and o

As Gandhi said, the poor of the world cannot be helped by mass production, only by production by the masses. 
The system of mass production, based on sophisticated,highly capital intensive, high energy input dependent, and human labour saving technology,  
presupposes that you are already rich, for a great deal of capital  
investment is needed to establish one single workplace. 

The system of production by the masses 
mobilises the priceless resources which are 
possessed by all human beings, their

In almost every computation a great variety of arrangements for the 
succession of the processes is possible, and various considerations 
must influence the selection amongst them for the purposes of a 
Calculating Engine. One essential object is to choose that 
arrangement which shall tend to reduce to a minimum the time 
necessary for completing the calculation.” 

  Ada Lovelace, 1843 


Lovelace’s words still ring true, almost two centuries later. One way 
to choose that arrangement is to use an

A well-designed device should not injure a human being. If possible, it should not allow a human being to come to harm through its inaction. 


The later is the difference between a car and a scissors. I expect a car to have safety devices. I don't expect a scissors to stop me from running while I hold it, if I'm stupid enough to do so. Devices should only be expected to work at their general level of complexity. 


A well-designed device should obey the direction given to it by human beings, exce

Desktop Environment-Related Thoughts Anonymous >>b42b4257aeace648ce [Reply]

What does a desktop environment need to be? I believe that it should function like a desk. Sure it may take a while for long time computer users to get used to the feel of such desktop environment, but wouldn’t it be more productive in the long run? As computers get further integrated with the office and other sorts of work its more and more important that the computers act the way everything else acts. Besides this I always like to know why. Why is this this way? or Why is something done th
