@mikelynch Good to hear you're okay, take care of yourself!
@Are0h Ughhhh. :(
re: p2p, hypercore and activitypub
my big take on activitypub clients lately is that it's ridiculous to insist on "we only support these activities because we are a twitter clone AND NOTHING ELSE" like instead a client should focus on fostering and accessing an ecosystem of type support plugins. otherwise you go down this scope-denying rabbithole that only reinforces the power of the denying cadre. users should have broad capabilities to customize their own client, and to distribute customized clients.
look: i know scope-creep is bad news, but i want you to think hard about what it has done for facebook.
@emmadavidson BE RIGHT THERE
@mike Hah, I have _absolutely_ done that. Which bit of software was it in your case?
@liamvhogan Pretty sure you've got zero chance of that one, haha.
@liamvhogan Oh shit, son!
@twiddlekins :( :( <3
@emmadavidson Oh god! D:

@drbuttocks Just wow.
@nolan I tried WebStorm a handful of years ago, before I was using TypeScript, and it just felt _really_ bloated and slow and overkill for what I was doing.
Granted I'm not any sort of professional developer, just strictly hobbyist, but VS Code and TypeScript has been wonderful for me. :)
