* Who is behind this?
Currently eyeblea.ch has just the one sysadmin, duncanb. Get in touch
by mail, local newsgroups, or (if I'm around) IRC.
* Why does this exist?
To provide an alternative to the Web, and social media sites like
Facebook and Whatsapp. It exists in the spirit of wabi-sabi, Unix,
ephemerality, and DIY.
* Is this secure?
There's a Perl CGI script running as root, creating users from Gopher
query input and permitting password auth on SSH. So ... no. Not
really. But that's not what it's /for/ :)
* Is this backed up?
No. See 'emphemerality' above. If your creations matter to you - and
they should - then /you/ should have a backup of them, not some
nebulous cloud provider :) .
* Are there any known bugs?
None at the moment :)
* What are the future plans for eyeblea.ch?
+ Create a cron job to reap old, inactive accounts.
+ Set up user quotas.
+ Get the code onto GitLab or somewhere similar.
+ Write some decent user documentation. Actually, any user
documentation would be nice.
+ Ponder what happens when we either exceed 7,999 users or (more
likely) the limits of a nano instance.
+ Promote eyeblea.ch in and around Melbourne.
+ Find some other sysadmins :)
