This looks extremely useful and, after a few minutes of playing around, seems to work exactly as described. It captures full web pages with all their dependencies to a single HTML file.

Big thank-you to @bkhl for introducing me to it.

Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to actually own anything. Media is streamed, and devices are locked from the users.

It's hilarious how all the things people were afraid of happening under communism are actually happening under capitalism.

Typical man pages be like:

sltcl – surrate little total compuloots

sltcl [-abgfewbctlvvqmABDVQWLZØ] [-C file] [-E file] [-h file [-d file]] path …

-a Display all paths
-b A synonym for bltcl(1)
-B A synonym for bltcl(5)

The typical sltcl configuration file. Good luck guessing the format.

Show all paths
$ sltcl -a
Use bltcl
$ sltcl -b

bltcl(1), bltcl(5), info sltcl

5/? - It's probably obvious by now that I know almost nothing about network protocols. :) Please still be my friends.

4/? Does any of that make sense? or has this already been tried and failed?

3/? - I also get that there are tools that simulate this a little bit. Static websites are a move in that direction, but they still ultimately rely on a server that operates on the request / response model. Is a broadcast model even conceivable? It seems like it should be. When I tune my radio to the right frequency, I automatically pick up whatever's playing there. Similarly, it seems like people should be able to see a website by "tuning in" to the right address, but without making a request.

2/? - But I'm fairly sure it's impossible to launch a DDoS attack on a radio station because radio stations only broadcast; they don't respond to requests in the way web servers do. So, I guess my question is this: is there a web / networking equivalent to broadcasting? There probably is. But can such a protocol interoperate with HTTP and/or be used in a web browser? I'd love to be able to "broadcast" my website in a read-only, browser-friendly way, like a radio station except on the web.

1/? - So, a long time ago, I said I wished that there was a record player equivalent for web servers: a device that could only read from its storage medium when it serves requests. I've been thinking more lately about that. The primary model for information transmission on the web is probably request / response. But, of course, this is what makes servers susceptible to DDoS attacks: servers have a limit on the number of requests they can respond to in a certain amount of time.

Does anyone here have any opinions about Perkeep? It looks like an interesting project!

I always read "fomo" in lowercase as "forno", Italian for "oven"

this in turn implies the existence of such recipes as "pasta al FOMO"

I hope you all are ready the debut of my new joke! This is one I've been refining for years. Things finally fell into place at the start of 2019 and, after what seemed like endless plans and dreams and delays, we were able to put it into production. At long last, it's here, ready to be sent out into the world. It is my great pleasure to finally, finally share with you...


How horrible of an idea is it to create my own password manager that just manages a local (encrypted) JSON file, and I'll manually sync that file between devices? I've been using Enpass for a while, but it doesn't run on my RasPi, and most of the other products out there require storing stuff (even if encrypted) on someone else's servers. Thoughts?
