  • Telegram enable sign up without a SIM card
    Oh, you're poisoned. There's something shady about all these new "chat clients" that require so much personal crap. I tend to prefer software that allows you to host your own server - Jitsi and Jitsi Meet allow that. Jitsi has ZRTP encryption and Jitsi Meet uses WebRTC for end-to-end encryption, but I like that even if you don't want to host it yourself, you can still use it without software/logins here on their... - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • Offering: English (American), Seeking: French (hexagonal)
    I'd be happy to find a long-term language partner who has the same lofty goal and interest. I'd love to meet virtually on Sundays via Jitsi - even if it's just for ten minutes at a time - or send each other audio files on the weekend. I don't know much about American English phonetics, so my feedback will be whether or not the sounds you make sound like those of a native speaker to my ear. I can demonstrate... - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago

  • Ask HN: Is it still possible to live in a terminal?
    Https:// for example… I don’t think mindless cargo culture is a trend to follow, nor will tech savvy devs disappear nor will the need to remotely administer servers via command lines tools disappear. Remote Desktop solutions are not realistic tools for server administration in any sort of serious way, so I’m pretty sure that’s a niche that will always exist…. - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • Hey fellow lawyers do any of you use Zoom to conduct meetings with clients?
    I've used Jitsi a few times for quick conversations. It's free and open source and there's no set up, login, or required software. I go to and put in a name for the meeting and send the URL to the client. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
