    It's actually a computing malfunction on Google's part, you could blame them.

    The team behind that site is still doing some API recovery "finalizing", but at least it is quickly stable according to them in their latest announcement. Among other places that relies heavily on the GCP code, this amounts to having millions of people being affected, and it already generated some interesting moments during its brief downtime, some more dramatic and desperate as if some lives' really depend on it. The next time a place as Discord or any other site that uses the same main browsing engine script goes down again, recognize that it is Google's technical fault, only a few such places have such a script.

    It's only a "soft reset" to consumers if site devs and admins know exactly what to do in such mishaps, the same could be said for Discord's many servers, it had just as much popularity as the most played game in the world in terms of messages sent daily on average.

    I was hoping it would stay dead :T I'm ready for the next paradigm shift.If i had the power I would just get everyone to use tox, but tox doesn't haven't built-in memes so people don't want it.

    Is Tox shitty?

    I don't think so personally? I have not tried using the 'groups' feature, I've only used it for one-on-one chats. I've used its voip feature though and it's solid. Most importantly it is peer to peer, and I like that more than using a chat service that relies on a giant spy corporation like Google. I think Whatsapp and Telegram are like encrypted, but no voice calls on desktop, and I want something I can voice chat with my partner over.

    But yeah I think Tox is solid, on Windows I use the qTox client, maybe there's a better or more frequently updated one out there though, I haven't checked for new ones in a while.

    I may make a new thread for it sometime, but here's a page of clients. Most are graphical, there are terminal clients too. Your account is basically a file on your computer you can import to different machines/operating systems.

    The thing is I keep hearing about to being a tool of spying.
    So one faction either wants to spy and disguise itself as its opposite.. or is trying to malign its genuine opposite as itself...

    Whatsapp is Facebook, and there were some issues with Telegram's security a while back, and their server software is proprietary.

    I've used qTox before, but I didn't really like it all that much for some reason. I'm more of an IRC person, really.

    I do like IRC. My whole guff with it is how I can't send emotes or images through most clients. I dunno if y'all have to me on Discord in a while, but like ninety percent of my writings there have some sorta cutesy anime emoji tacked onto the end. Usually conveying some kinda affection for who I'm talkin' to.

    ... In fact, I kinda almost wrote one just now. Aheh.

    So that's the main reason on the lattermost poster not reading Lucian's PM's lately, even at all despite him trying to inform you as best he could from the moment the new system was up of what's going on, what to do with it, and whatnot. He still consistently resists using Discord even after the brief technical breakdown, come to think. Not even WaifuBot, a complicated social experiment server with generated popular girls from a single bot is going to change his mind apart from a few occasional IRC chatbots in the past. I guess that is the only way he still uses to communicate more openly. Perhaps he still does not want too much attention towards himself even after he grew up considerably. After all no one in this world, not even a low-pay job can hire him with such incapability.


    As for my own mood, I do not convey particular feelings, even towards my master, though not emotionless and generic. That's why if you want to say something in terms of PM's as you used to before the system switch, the only bit of difference in how to use it nowadays is trying to come up with a subject when you start new PM's, and then selecting me (as Sozora) as the participant. Nothing to be afraid for using it, but if that is your preference, nothing can prevent you, let alone the occasional technical difficulties or changes in their services.


    It is not that he dislikes Discord, is that he is too uncomfortable in handling the complexity of using and inevitable unexpected responses that might in the future affect him.

    Have any of you guys tried XMPP/Jabber?  It isn't the best for group discussions but it is great for one on one conversations.  Just don't join 404.city, they don't like to play nice with other servers for some reason.
