@cblgh Great, will check when it's back up - thanks again!
@cblgh Thanks for these suggestions - used Fidonet when I was in Dakar in the 90s! BBS doc also a good idea. Am pretty familiar with old-school p2p (Usenet, Bittorrent) but less up on recent/current developments other than Devine and Rekka's tools and things like Hypercast on Beaker.
Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
