There are many ways this site could go down, at any moment. Is everyone just gonna migrate to newtotse? It would likely be the death blow of a community that's already on life support, probably for the best. What are you gonna do? keep the legacy of TOTSE going so your children can follow in your footsteps, spread the teaching of THE TEMPLE far and wide?!
Is anyone willing to take up the mantle and host it themselves? and is that person trustworthy? There are many outcomes under this current model and in my opinion more bad than good ones, lets examine a few;
Lanny gets bored/says fuck it and pulls the plug, Lanny dies, A bomb gets dropped and explodes the entire server, earthquake tornado flooding, Government server raid, Malicious actors frying the motherboard, Getting cancelled by keffels and blocked by every ISP. Any of those could happen at any moment, and there is no plan. But not only is this forum at risk of an immediate disaster, it could all be lost forever when it doesn't have to be.
A BBS style forum isn't exactly the cutting edge of technology, if you look at other software like Xenforo or SimpleMachines.. they have been around many years and could probably survive 100 years. This codebase could have a similar lifespan to commercial alternatives if it was more widely adopted.
But why stop there? Honestly I think ISS forum software is one of the biggest contributions to the TOTSE community anyone has provided, and I would hate to see such a gift wasted when we live in a time of emerging singularity future tech. Here are some ideas I had that would make this forum resilient and able to withstand any scenario from nuclear war to an entire freak accident where every user dies.

Litty. How big is it?
I'm looking into converting the files into a flat structure bytecode encoded with BRAINFUCK using a transformative portable array sent through the D bus to an Osiris portal

2023-02-21 at 6:45 AM UTCWhat the hell do our great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandkids do after the 1,000 years?? I don't think you've fully thought this out.

Ummmmm maybe in normal person english please bro?
Im still trying to learn this shit myself
but apparently its been around for a while so yeah learn it before the government bans you looking at stuff like this
But fellas networking is really a luxury at this point, tor/i2p are probably good enough for now, We should really be focusing on ways to get this deployable, which I don't think will happen until someone starts submitting pulls. I just finished my python lessons for today and Did a little JANGO practice, I'm thinking maybe I can use QT to build the package repo installer , anyone here ever build an exe ? I feel like I must be missing something.
Also check this out, it converts lots of forum types into p2p network code. I think it's serverless too

only the first 1000? This should last waaaay longer if set up right, space networking and zero trust money filecoins
ON THE BLOCK CHAIN!!
only one other company offering a decentralized lifetime hosting for such a rate and its filecoin, both crypto. eat your heart out folks

Filecoin, Storj Tokens Outperform Bitcoin Amid Increased Use of Decentralized Storage Protocols
The utility FIL token jumped 62% over the past week. Decentralized storage protocols have recently gained attention as their use has increased, an analyst said.
Okay I will try to fix code now

2023-02-26 at 11:15 PM UTChow da fuck do you backup a website? I can;t figure out what software I even need. Do I just need some kind of mass scraper? Unless lanny or fralala is willing to give me the IP address of the physical server back end I can't really do much and as far as I know there is no backup in place . Off site couldn't hurt otyherwise ill just save all my own shit and move on from that,.

Originally posted by Lanny This would be a simple enough change that I'd say just do a PR, BUT it gets a little tricky with how the themes are set up. Basically the server side view of themes is "a user's theme is one of X values, load a stylesheet corresponding to the theme". The UI code knows lots of stuff about a theme, like what the dominant color is, but the server side doesn't. So the config had to be changed to allow "theme attributes", e.g. the theme color (since the meta tag in question is generated as part of templateing, which is server side). And then this broke other things that expected the theme configuration to be a certain format. I changed the theme config so adding more "theme attributes" in the future will be easier and not require this kind of hoop jumping, but it involves enough of the config mechanism that I wouldn't really expect anyone to do it without being pretty familiar with the code. This ended up being the code change necessary if anyone happens to be interested:
tl;dr: it's kind of complicated so I just went ahead and did it myself.
Falcon: I don't have device with an appropriate OS to test this. It should be live now. Could you try it out with the three themes and let me know if it looks OK? Please screenshot if not.
2023-05-16 at 5:26 AM UTCthe code to make youtube shorts and tiktok works
the dice bot code is like 40% developed
I don't remember if time limits to polls were a thing but that should be added too, it's all gonna one big fat greek pull
get your request in now this might be the only chance in years
bumping to remind myself this exists
you could remove the login, stop all spam and alt accounts with zero captcha, In theory.
not ETH wallets, you should not need to download anything or have to set up or do anything, just press the button and it works
verified trust with 1 press. It's possible but very experimental technology. I have seen sites experimenting with alternate web3 auths so it's not standardized, there are some trends forming.
