I feel like i'm getting a little spammy with this, but that's not my intention. I just thought I'd pin it to this profile since I've been spending a lot of time on Kolektiva.

It's also kind of important because the Internet just got knocked out for a lot of people across 3 states a couple days ago when that bomb went off in Nashville. That's not how the Internet was supposed to be, but it's kinda how it is right now.

Might want to start thinking about alternatives.

@raye yeah, we've been on this road for a long time. I'm trying to figure out how to blame Ajit Pai, but I don't have enough info tbh.

BTW I'm not saying ham radio can completely replace the Internet. It can't, and probably shouldn't. For one thing, depending on the frequency space you're using, your range is dependent on freakin' sunspot cycles.

But we need methods of communicating that are decentralized and resilient in case *this* type of shit happens. Because it will.
