Magnora forgot to pay the bill.

Stop misleading people and wait for M7 to let us know. D3rr redirected us back here when he noticed the server was accessible.

The account above me is a famous shill account and should under no circumstances be listened to.

We know, we know. He's so obvious, too.

You obviously have no idea what a shill is, fucking snowflake.

Socks isn't a shill. He just doesn't condone right wing Zionist propaganda like a lot of other people on the site do.

[–]JasonCarswell 7 insightful - 5 fun7 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 5 fun -  (7 children)

I love you Jesus but he's a shill, paid or not, for authority, the establishment, their corrupt systems, lying media, and of course harmful medical shit.

How's the lemmy/lenny instance project coming?

Cassy Catch Up, 2021-05-17

I get a bit more communication from Larry than from magnora7. Optimus, and the others have been silent too. I have no idea what's going on with our indie-server on my old box. I ask the same questions and get few answers. I think we have grand plans, yet I have no clue what's going on. I'm wondering if we're even on the same page. I'm okay with things taking as long as it takes, but not being in the dark. Plus I only asked for things asap: 1) set up a simple stable Linux server (I've forgotten all the Linux I ever knew 22-26 years ago), 2) set up wiki, 3) set up Lenny, and critically 4) let me access the drive space from my Win7 (I'm crazy tight for space). Everything else is bonus without hurry. So far we only have one and a half. It took a few weeks but the server is up. The wiki is installed somewhere unconventional but it works. Larry wanted to install a non-decentralized phpBB forum to be his own project and I haven't heard a peep from him for days since. I'm not even sure what his terms or plans were, or how he was going to moderate it. I can't get a domain name to connect through my router to the server. The wiki not being accessible to the world is not critical as there is a lot of wiki-related geekery to learn and apply and of course content to draft up, and then it can be announced. Maybe I should fund-raise to buy a couple decent server boxes, a dedicated fiber line, and some local sysadmin help to guarantee results. fschmit is eager to throw money at development but he has no time for it and I don't code, couldn't knowledgeably manage that project, nor do I know any who can. Perhaps I can find someone local to help. I'm starting to think I need to tap my local resources more where people may be more reliable in person with names I know and faces I can measure up. I don't like being pushy or demanding but I don't think I've been asking too much. Yes it's all generously volunteered I.T., but herding cats with one and a half cats is not much of a movement. I'm considering quitting or something. I'm pissy and need more sleep. Maybe I just need to focus on the wiki content for a while.

Sounds like you have too many projects. I think you need to make the lenny instance work first and then build around that. If one thing works well then people will enjoy using it. It will grow and volunteer programmer help will come. Do one thing well and let everything flow from that.

edit. Good song by the way. Never heard it. Reminds me a bit of Laibach for some reason.

[–]Horrux 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Exactly. Hell, he might be so brainwashed he actually believes the unimaginable drivel he posts. He is sort of entertaining that way.

[–]JasonCarswell 3 insightful - 6 fun3 insightful - 5 fun4 insightful - 6 fun -  (0 children)

Suddenly I miss downvoting him on Reddit.

[–]ActuallyNot 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

You have a very weird idea of what sort of posts people pay for.

[–]Excantare 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

How do you know

[–]RightousBob 4 insightful - 6 fun4 insightful - 5 fun5 insightful - 6 fun -  (10 children)

Socks you should go back to Reddit and fucking stay there. Worthless shill.

[–]socks 9 insightful - 7 fun9 insightful - 6 fun10 insightful - 7 fun -  (9 children)

I'm here to see if you will ever have an original thought to share on Saidit. Thus far - after several months - nothing.

[–]RightousBob 7 insightful - 5 fun7 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 5 fun -  (6 children)

Original thought? That's rich coming from a bush league shill who simply regurgitates msm/cia talking points. Also, take your puppet account actuallynot with you when you leave! Fuck outta here punk!

[–]socks 6 insightful - 4 fun6 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 4 fun -  (5 children)

Again: nothing. Is it really that difficult, Bob?

[–]Dinosaurysus 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

So... Did you miss Saidit?

[–]socks 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

I didn't miss Bob, LOL

[–]Jesus 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Me neither.

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Rule 1 of Reddit, and now SaidIt ... don't engage with shills. ESPECIALLY the shills who accuse you of being one.

You have a choice ... be a troll and help them dig their grave, or be a real person and help the website and community flourish.

[–]socks 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

The first rule of Saidit is: You do not talk about Saidit. The second rule of Saidit is: You do not talk about Saidit. Third rule of Saidit: Someone yells "Stop!", goes limp, taps out, the discussion is over. Fourth rule: Only 20 shills to a discussion.

[–]jet199 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

Well of course not, if you're here.

[–]socks 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I wonder if you understand what you've written.

[–]usehername[S] 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

Again?

[–][deleted] 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (2 children)

Yeah, unfortunately this might become a regular thing.

[–]mongre 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Just stop. You have no clue.

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Except it's the truth. You're the one that has no clue.

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 3 fun1 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Last time, according to one who would know.

This time it remains to be seen.

[–]hennaojichan 4 insightful - 5 fun4 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 5 fun -  (1 child)

Good to see you guys but except for a few I don't know who the hell you are>

To get to the other side.

[–]dissidentrhetoric 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Can I set up a mirror of the site or something?

[–]infocom6502 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (5 children)

Was this some sort of DNS hack? I kept getting redirected to reddit

[–]usehername[S] 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

Apparently one of the owners set it up to redirect to the reddit sub when this site is down.

[–]infocom6502 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

makes sense, thanks!

was the outage caused by DoS attack, or just forgot to pay bill (I can't figure out whether they are joking in the discussion above)?

there've been a lot of outages of alt-sites recently over course of a few weeks (way longer for snew). saidit, conspiracies.win, snew.notabug .

Today i noticed the privacy twitter client seems to have been hit by hackers: nitter.cc , nitter.net both very kaputt

one can luckily still find many functioning instances, eg nitter.pussthecat.org

https://github.com/zedeus/nitter/wiki/Instances

i'd guess there's some sort of campaign (against Alt) going on.

[–]Ash 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

The first outage was because of 'unpaid' bills or something similar. Mag7 explained it further in a post a few days later. I haven't been on here in a while and wasn't aware that saidit was down again. I have my own suspicions and some reddit threads let me deeper into the rabbit hole.

[–]usehername[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

No problem. Can't say I haven't wondered if something fishy's going on, but it could be another missed bill. The site's not run by many people, lots could go wrong that isn't necessarily nefarious. No word from anyone yet. :/
