In case some of you dont know(todays postings disappeared..) Facebook is commercial-lizing the site now.So anything you post CANT be shared en mass anymore and they want you to pay up $7/post.
This is like saying buying a happy meal lunch everytime you need to put stuff on the net.BTE, thats over $600 a month, one happy McDonalds lunch a day...
Im sorry, thats what a WEB SERVER is for. What a BLOG and a WEBSITE is for. If you dont like it, We'll use EFNET.We'll go underground. I WROTE the book on these protocols dont dare tell ME I dont have a voice or way to communicate..PEOPLE like ME built the DAMN INTERNET!
XCHAT is easy enough to come by and EFNET is usually text forums about software or tech support or the like. Its chat. But its not hi speed chat usually. Can almost always connect thru a browser proxy or directly thru xchat client itself.
TO HELL with this commercialization of tweets. I dont care how much it makes FB or TWITTER. I REFUSE TO BE OWNED.
If you have a site or server, USE IT. REFUSE to be silent.
Arduino based webserver is around 75 or so.BUILT. Cant promise you everything on an 8-bit microcontroller but people have used them as webservers..need either xbee or ethernet shield and the arduino base module.If yer good at hacking, you might be able to hack it together for less.
