Aether

https://getaether.net/docs/how_is_it_different_from/

I like their "Real Prime Directive":

Act fast and chomp down on posts that just haven't gotten the basic idea.

Why? Vast majority of people are genuinely good, pleasant humans. But a very small number of misbehavers can make any place not so great, even when almost all of the people in the place is still well-meaning.

Vast majority of people also have no concept of just how much effort and vigilance it takes to keep a community a pleasant place, or how efficiently an awful post can ruin a lot of people's days. The work you do is valuable.

Aether attempts to fix that by making your actions visible, and in the front and center. People will see just how much work you're doing to keep your corner of the world an enjoyable place.

It's hilarious because the FIBs and their corporate media mouthpieces were desperately trying make it a thing that "white supremacists" were plotting a nationwide wave of terrorist protest demonstrations for today under this slogan. There was a small media blitz about it going into the weekend. When I read about it yesterday afternoon on Gab, it'd been the first I'd heard of it.

The need for some event they can point and shriek "White Devil!" at is palpable. The desperation on display.

Simply not true.

This kind of narrative can only come from a disinformation/propaganda broadcast or website. With the exception of a few criminals, BLM supporters are not like this. Get better information, look at video evidence and see for yourself that this is not true. (Also notice the whites who are creating problems at protests.)

One can also say that White Lives Matter supporters:

...are racist and want installation of racist laws such as [retiring] affirmative action. They blame everyone else for their own misery and pretend my ancestors are slave owners, while I'm irish. They want privilege and are willing to steal, loot and murder to reach their goal. They are the definition of a terrorist organisation and should be put in jail.

(BTW: My Irish/British ancestor had slaves. He said he'd not step foot on US soil if Lincoln was elected. The remaining years of his life he managed the farm while sitting at a window, directing farm hands, with a fire in the fireplace behind him year-round.)

There is an obvious context for this statement, which is a reaction to the Black Lives Matter movement and the sign they've used. It was not an issue or a comment before BLM. There have been, however, many "white people are superior" comments over the years. White Lives Matter is - for many - also another version of "white people are superior." Posts like this are the reason Saidit sometimes fails as a website. Though this is of course "free speech" it's obviously a message of division, hatred and bigotry, and doesn't help anyone. It also makes the "whites" who support this kind of statement look weak, racist, stupid, crazy, and infantile.

The suggestion from u/Dinosaurysus about the CMOS battery needing replacement sounds valid. Especially if you have the computer for a few years, and the erratic behaviour might be a sign of a dead battery. It pays little to try to replace it before resorting to more drastic measures. Just pay attention to buy the correct battery.

But I find it really weird that if I leave Windows on too long it reverts, but if I restart immediately: I can do whatever I want — except boot Linux, apparently, that won't work no matter what I do.

The first question: That's because the battery has some charge to hold the changes for a few minutes but not for longer? For the second question: I see you tried with two distributions, the first isn't exactly a major one, and the second one has certain requirements that must be met in order to run and it's not a livecd unless you tried an earlier version.

Replacing the battery is easy, but if you have been attacked by a rootkit that's vastly more difficult to address. Somewhat irrelevant to these two, if you want to experiment with linux you can try with something more suitable for general use from an established source.

Very not statistical proof. I suppose it may prove that they are both airborne viruses, but correlation, as they say, is not proof of causation.

Unfortunately it is never just the smug disaster making leftists who feel the degradation of their nation destroying ideologies.

We all eventually get culturally enriched by the violence and resentment of the incompatible hordes being packed into western nations.

Bummer. I'm guessing that may be old too.

I wonder if this thing is trying to be too many things at once.

That reminds me of the current state of browsers... I often wonder if it might be better to have many different specialty apps with "bridges" to each other and occasionally "frames" within sandboxes. Perhaps the main app would be the "bridges".

Or maybe I'm just talking out my ass and pretending that inverting to flip "addons" on its head makes any difference.

My Initial Review

After delving into RetroShare I have mixed feelings.

4/10 : GUI Flow

The interface is confusing, not well planned out, and not presented well. It's like they just kept adding features to it. Some things are customizable and some are not. Some fonts are too big and others too small. Some things offer 4 visual modes (ie "Chat": bubbles, compact bubbles, standard, standard compact) while there's nothing compact about "Activity". Having a 2 dark modes is good but neither is adequate.

The GUI is all over the place. Some stuff offers icons, buttons, drop-down menus, tabs, tables, etc and some stuff there is zero indication that there are right click menu options.

7/10 : Features

Many features in one place rather than many clients/apps. Many seem to overlap functionality thus adding to the confusion. The features are called "tabs" but are icons/buttons horizontally across the top (option: left vertical). They are:

  • Home
  • Network
  • People
  • Chat
  • Mail
  • Files
  • Channels
  • Forums
  • Boards
  • FeedReader
  • RetroChess
  • Activity
  • Preferences
  • Quit

Also:

  • Links (ie. Posts, Feed Reader, etc.) get opened in your external default browser - pros and cons.
  • VoIP doesn't have a tab for some reason (yet chess does).
  • No wiki.
  • Limited save/archive/expiry controls. Because it's decentralized I will be re-sharing everything I have, kind of like bittorrent.
  • No way to mail to external email addresses.
  • No way to archive mail, feeds, forum, etc.

I could be wrong about some of this, my first limited impression.

The Network, People, Chat, Mail, etc sections are not intuitive and confusing with the contacts list. I love that the mail has custom tags that can be used like folders to organize and sort your stuff. We have nothing like that on SaidIt.

In the "Boards" you can post a link, image, or post. Only the image has a thumbnail. :( The voting is strange and awkward as are the comments and the layout. Boards seem to be more like what we have on SaidIt - easily confused with Channels (video), Forums (discussions), and FeedReader (typical feed aggregator IMO).

FeedReader seems very promising. 2 types: Forum or Local Feed (I'm assuming I can feed into the 3 forums I made but I can only do local feed so far. (https://infogalactic.com/info/SaidIt#RSS_Feeds). I've set mine up to get the SaidIt Hot Posts, New Posts, and New Comments. "Authentication (not yet supported)" seems to imply that we might soon be able to login to SaidIt via Retroshare. The feeds can be stored for a standard (not mentioned) or variable time (I plugged in 999999 days). Update interval standard (not mentioned) or custom in minutes. They downloaded the first 100, which I think may be standard either for feed readers or for SaidIt's RSS.

The problem with feed aggregators is that it's just another step between you and the source. It's one thing if you have many feeds from different sites - but SaidIt already IS an aggregator. Thus it's a hat on a hat in this case.

7/10 : Options

Very good but not great. All the features and more have settings you can customize but each is a mixed bag, from basic to advanced, but not expert. Again in somewhat confusing arrangements.

9/10 : FLOSS Decentralized

Not only is it open-source and decentralized - it doesn't even need any websites. I don't give a 10/10 because I don't know what I don't know and maybe there are other issues with it, maybe not.

Also, one critical universal problem with decentralization is that for wide adoption people need to have plug-n-play, basic, advanced, and expert options available, IMO. Most people won't have time for the learning curve and dealing with the 4/10 GUI flow.

I suspect most users comfortable with Reddit and SaidIt would be too lazy to bother to learn this new desktop client (not sure if it's also a smart phone app). If the flow were better they might dig it for the decentralization and/or other features. Needing an external browser to read/see links may be a deal breaker though as some may not like switching between them.

27/40 : Conclusion

I can't help but think of what someone once said about starting up a new luxury car company (Tesla, Saturn, Lexus or something, I forget), something to the effect: It's not enough to just have a product that's a little better because they are established, our product needs to be universally vastly superior in order to break into the market and survive.

Sadly, IMO, Retroshare is very neat but not enough. Yet it's not without value and much potential. It's a neat side toy. Or maybe I'm completely wrong and it's the next great thing.

Regardless, I'm going to keep playing with RetroShare and Session for a while longer. PM me if you want to join our exploratory activities there.

If you research how the modern Israeli state was founded, how an eschatological jewish movement in eastern europe planned the colonization and takeover of Palestine through immigration, fraud and political subversion—a country that was 95% Palestinian muslim in the 19th century—, how everything we’ve ever been taught about our greatest ally is a lie, then you will understand why there should only be a one state solution, a palestinian state, and theft should not be rewarded.

It is an ethnostate: any racial jew can claim citizenship in this country, in spite of the fact that they may only have partial ancestry that has not inhabited that region for close to 2 thousand years. Antimiscegenation laws are enforced: no jew can marry a non-jew. It is a theocracy: tax dollars support radical clerics of this race based religion who believe non-jews dont have souls!
