You need to live closer to a substation and a network POP.

It isn't exactly ncurses, but a tad more supported on a variety of awful TTYs if you happen to be stuck on one of those.

But there's history, I suppose. Citadel doesn't hail from the WWIVnet days, predating that.

Subject: Updated privacy policy for UNCENSORED!

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]



For some reason, every site in the universe seems to be spewing endless privacy policies at everyone lately. So here's the privacy policy for UNCENSORED!

Part 1: Privacy

You have no privacy. Get over it.

Part 2: more privacy

No really, that's all. Get over it. At least our privacy policy tells you the unvarnished truth.

It's the EU. They have new requirements, and it's making everyone pump out emails about it.

Dear EU:

Screw you, and screw your policy. If you're reading this in Europe, ha ha, I set a cookie on your browser and am reading your private email. Come and get me.

Feature request: when being asked for a password on the command-line client, can CTRL-C please be used to abort the operation? I mistyped my username (kc5tja), it asked me to create the account, I tried to abort via ~. but that didn't work. Out of habit, I was typing another command, which included 'y' in it, and, well, here we are.

:(

I've always preferred Citadel's spartan terminal interface to the others out there at the time.

It helped you focus entirely on conversation, and not stoopid 'signatures' with ANSI codes, animations, and other rot.

Consequently, I found conversations on Citadel systems to have a higher quality than on FidoNet or WWIVnet.

Although, unfortunately, the latter two BBS networks had far more people participating.

Using Webcit for the first time in a while.

Still works.

Er, is it intentional for Uncensored's certificate to be dated Sunday, November 04, 1906, 10:31 AM?

Probably. I got tired of dealing with it so if anyone really wants SSL they can accept the certificate.

I am planning to add support for Let's Encrypt into WebCit's replacement so it can order and renew its own free certificates.

People complain about 3270-style screen-oriented interfaces all the time, it seems; however, when push comes to shove, it seems more people prefer them to something more free-form. Like, on the one hand, "LOLZ, the 60s called and they want their block-oriented terminals back," but as soon as you present an interface of simpler structure, they're all like, "LULZ, where R teh fancy ANSI graffix and slicc menyooz?"

You just can't please everyone.

Heh.. today's version of ANSI animations are 'Web 2.0' or whatever they're calling it these days... oh, I think it's 'Responsive' now.

As everyone who actually uses these things knows ... and this applies to people who work in hospitals, at point of sale terminals, mechanical shops, etc ... once you learn a keyboard based interface, it is MUCH faster to operate than something that requires a mouse.

Depends on the activity; I wouldn't want to do interactive 3D modeling or bitmap manipulation with a keyboard. But for data entry purposes? Basic file management? Text editing? Absolutely. Nothing beats a keyboard.
