do the world a favor and get your friends back on xmpp
@cwebber not sure what you mean by "back" 🙄
What about matrix?
@teecee ideally everyone should be able to run a server. it should be as easy as possible. matrix, right now, does not have a good server implementation, and is not worth installing. it also doesn't really have any usable mobile clients except riot, and riot kind of sucks.
I'm on my way doing that 😎
It's gonna take a while but I'm doing my best
Hint: rational arguments don't work
Emotional ones do
the most obvious joke to make
@cwebber 🤔 that's a funny way to spell "IRC"
@cwebber write more clients. more usable clients. modern clients. and sadly, someone needs to do that for all platforms, including ios (the forgotten stepchild of libre software, due in large part to the platform's hostility to such and expensive cost in even shipping software at all)
@cwebber xmpp lacks usable clients. especially on iOS. but pretty much the only actually good client is Conversations for Android, sadly.
@cwebber they were never there
@cwebber Contacted an old friend that I have not seen in a long while via e-mail. He was my first contact over xmpp, introduced me to it, and the only for quite a while. He replied, then I replied saying we can talk over xmpp again... and he stopped replying :-/ Trying, but it's not working.
