@denydias:matrix.orgDeny DiasI was about to say just that... Syncthing doesn't need a central server, but you can have it if you like... I don't.05:07:52

@agentsmith6969:matrix.orgagentsmith6969it's just a convention, I get it05:08:49
@slacktoid:stax.xyzSlacktoidexactly!05:09:31
@denydias:matrix.orgDeny DiasNot even a convention in the way it was designed. Each device is a node fully capable of sync'ing. If you call one of them a "central server" it's just a matter of implementation, but never a requirement.05:10:01
@slacktoid:stax.xyzSlacktoid^ nailed it 05:09:53
@agentsmith6969:matrix.orgagentsmith6969i meant a convention from the management point of view, not from the technical point of view05:36:30
@agentsmith6969:matrix.orgagentsmith6969if one has a desktop, a laptop and a phone, it makes sense to call the desktop the server05:36:57
@drgibbon:matrix.orgdrgibbon agentsmith6969: OK, so the docker command is in the docker-cli package now. 05:38:02
@drgibbon:matrix.orgdrgibbon * agentsmith6969: OK, so the docker command is in the docker-cli package now. 05:38:10
@agentsmith6969:matrix.orgagentsmith6969 drgibbon: thanks, I am following the SBo mailing list as well 05:38:23
@agentsmith6969:matrix.orgagentsmith6969in readonly mode though05:38:32
@agentsmith6969:matrix.orgagentsmith6969the maintainer of docker SlackBuild should probably mention docker-cli in the README, if this incident bugged so many people and triggered fuss on the mailing list05:39:30
@drgibbon:matrix.orgdrgibbonyes, it's a little odd, CLI tools seem basic to me.05:40:50
@agentsmith6969:matrix.orgagentsmith6969btw, if I symlink a file into syncthing's shared dir, I suppose it will push the real file to remote hosts?05:51:51
@denydias:matrix.orgDeny DiasNever tried with symlinks... test it and let us know what happens. Symlink folder too, if you may.06:05:42

i do the opposite.. real file in syncthing and symlink to where it needs to be used

@rbn:orgizm.netrbnfwiw, upspin.io is also working nice, it never really took off on the "share stuff with people" front though 13:05:16
@rbn:orgizm.netrbnit inherits some concepts of 9p, only with federated servers & addressing13:11:33
@rbn:orgizm.netrbnand everything is encrypted by default13:12:24
@rbn:orgizm.netrbnbut, never really took off, i guess it's usable enough for the go/old bell labs folks to use it ;)13:13:06
@agentsmith6969:matrix.orgagentsmith6969never heard of upspin, but their mascot is wonderful :D13:47:24

@rbn:orgizm.netrbnyeah, renees drawings are quite memorable :)14:05:19
@denydias:matrix.orgDeny DiasSpeaking of animals illustrating nerd stuff, does someone knows from where O'Reilly inspiration comes from? How they decide what pet will get into the cover of what book?20:57:37
@denydias:matrix.orgDeny Dias

Found it! I never took the time to search about it, but it was not hard... there's even an article from Edie Freedman, who came up with the idea, in O'Reilly official website:

https://www.oreilly.com/content/a-short-history-of-the-oreilly-animals/

Quoting:

Even the terms associated with Unix—vi, sed and awk, uucp, lex, yacc, curses, to name just a few—were weird. They sounded to me like words that might come out of Dungeons and Dragons.
...
As I looked for images for the book covers, I came across some odd-looking animal engravings from the 19th century. They seemed to be a good match for all those strange-sounding UNIX terms, and were esoteric enough that I figured they’d probably appeal to programmers. And, as I investigated the attributes of the real animals, I quickly discovered that there were intriguing correspondences between specific technologies and specific animals.

Here are all those 1243 (!) animals:
