Congratulations!!!

Wonderful write up!

For those who don't understand the technical jargon, fundamentally this will keep the old SaidIt classic engine running long after newer evolving Internet-hosting standards would have otherwise forced it to shut down in a year or few, unless you have an army of coders to upgrade the code. Docker is a virtual container in which the old system can run in an isolated old environment contained within modern environment hosting systems. (Correct me if I'm wrong d3rr.)

It's almost like being able to play an 8-track on your Blu-ray machine with a special Docker.

This is a minor victory in the perpetual info-culture-cyber-wars.

This is an epic huge achievement for our SaidIt truth-seeking free-thinking communities.

Thanks to both of you for your hard work.

But, I can't help but getting the sense that people don't seem to like the multiple versions of python fiasco that sends to occur every so often.

Yep, python 2 to 3 was rough, and we're still stuck in python 2 world.

Docker will help Saidit continue docking TPTSB.

Wow this is very impressive, especially with such a small team! Thank you for your hard work guys.

The Docker Team is /u/d3rr solo, no relation to Han Solo.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Amazing work, d3rr and co.

I hope everyone realizes what a huge project this is and how important it is for saidit's future. Thank you!

How can I get RES to also act on saidit?

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

I have this installed, but i can't resolve my reddit.local to reach my server.

I have it on linode and it's on ubuntu 20 as instructed. I'm not sure what i'm missing.

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

Any successful installs? I'm trying to install it on my server and having no luck at all. Dependencies that are no longer there (tomcat7 has been replaced by tomcat9).

I can't figure out how to even get an initial load..the instructions don't seem complete. I would love to run this, but it's not seeming possible at the moment.
