Hot take: Matrix actually sucks
@SamanthaCayne yeah but it's an incompetent design and an incompetent implementation
@Elizafox You know what doesn't suck and still works
@FimbulFlower IRC sucks in its own way but it could be improved
@Elizafox IRC is pretty much the perfect chat protocol so idk what needs to be changed. There's a dearth of really good irc clients but xchat works fine for me.
@a_breakin_glass Just put your files on your web server instead of a cloud you don't know! Or just DCC the file.
@FimbulFlower isn't DCC non-standard between clients?
@a_breakin_glass I don't know, I mean, if you want to upload an image there's always framapic or something. If it's a bigger file, megaupload, idk.
@FimbulFlower I thought we were talking about IRC
@SwooshyCueb Well I don't see how the IRC protocol could support voice chat. It's just text for the most part. I personally only use voice chat for extremely specific things so using mumble works fine for me.
@FimbulFlower problem is, if I'm gonna be able to convince all my friends to switch platforms again, it's gotta be a single platform that's got both
@FimbulFlower I tried IRC/XMPP and Mumble back in the day and the software was great, but like, nobody was willing to switch with me
@SwooshyCueb o ya, I just hope people don't go back to skype when discord dies.
That program is hell, still.
@FimbulFlower you know they will tho :c
@Elizafox Oh god I tried running a matrix server and it fucked itself somehow in less than two weeks and riot sucks so much ass (in a bad way). I want it to be good though. Like it's a great idea, but a poor implementation
