This is an awesome throwback to waaay too much of my time around college – it inspired (what eventually became) http://revengerists.com/library/ – originally the library game was hidden, and to find it you had to navigate a few domains of notpron-style puzzles before being tasked with the library
I agree with the title.
To me, the rest seem pretty obtuse.
In 2018 people should be talking of self-hosting, not about paying web hosting (that are likely to resell cloud services)
I think paying for web hosting is one step above letting FB control your data.
Of course, self-hosting is the best position to be in, but not everyone has a stable internet connection or the technical know-how to do that. Although, I would love for both of those to start moving in the right direction, baby steps first.
there are literally web/ssh/vnc/ftp/etc server apps for android…
hosting your own servers is easier than ever…
tho stable net is one obstacle, the bigger one is ISPs not allowing incoming traffic…
It sucks that ISPs have made it so difficult to have a home server - not impossible, just more difficult than it needs to be.
If there was an iOS/Android app made to turn a phone into a server, that’d be incredible – I’d love to have people dial into my cellphone which hosts a BBS, but alas that’s only a dream.
dialing part might be a dream, but server part definitely isn’t…tho your server will probably not reach the internet cause dam ISPs deciding so…
I hope someday that Microsoft will give up on trying to create a working browser, and focus on creating a working operating system.
I don’t know their strategy, but given WSL, I suspect they will soon give up on trying to create a working operating system.
“… a buggy set of drivers…” is my hope, but with less “buggy” :)
