  9. flo hello is there a way to find out the total amount of active xmpp users worldwide? I know about the prosody monitor https://network.trashserver.net/ but I would like to know if there is any estimation of the deep net...

  22. moparisthebest It'd be really hard to do flo , could maybe stalk cert transparency logs until Feb 28th and look for the number of XMPP servers then multiply by a few for users or something

  25. Zash You can guesstimate the number of servers. Users are harder.
  26. flo moparisthebest "Any list of XMPP servers, clients or libraries will, due to the dynamic and evolving nature of the XMPP market, be out of date almost as soon as it’s published." Maybe it would be worth a study to ask the biggest players for numbers.
  27. Zash Guess a distribution curve and multiply by the number of guesstimated servers
  28. moparisthebest Yea that will tell you how many users are on those servers
  29. Zash There are things like the Debian popcon and such that can provide some numbers
  30. moparisthebest If you want to try the cert transparency logs though you better do it quick the free lunch ends Feb 28th
  31. Zash waitwhat
  32. moparisthebest Zash: that's the go live date for wildcard certs at letsencrypt
  33. moparisthebest Today every xmpp domain you get a cert for is in the log, when *. example.org is issued you just have to guess

  42. Zash But certs aren't xmpp-specific in any way
  43. moparisthebest But a simple DNS query to check
  44. moparisthebest With any of the certstream projects
  45. Zash you mean srv records? those aren't required?
  46. SamWhited has left
  47. lskdjf has joined
  48. Zash might as well go for one of those entire internet port scans
  49. Ge0rG has left
  50. Ge0rG has left
  51. moparisthebest Yes srv and or connecting to 5222 you'd catch a good number
  52. moparisthebest Can't tell how many domains though, and useless for ipv6
  53. flo You would catch whatsapp on port 5222 too... I'm more interested in the numbers of alternative xmpp clients
  54. Ge0rG has left
  55. moparisthebest flo: oh well for that just search GitHub

  58. Dave Cridland has joined
  59. flo moparisthebest‎ how does github tell me something about the userbase of lets say conversations?
  60. moparisthebest flo: sorry what are you after, number of users, number of clients, or numbers of users per client?
  61. moparisthebest Because those are all different things
  62. flo well users would be the most interesting thing, but the hardest to find out...
  63. flo just look at the prosody monitor, something is still better than nothing

  556. moparisthebest well zinid privacy and e2ee overlap a bit but it's not the whole story, no commercial walled gardens offer the kind of privacy xmpp does
  557. moparisthebest my point was if the average user is surprised that twitter has what they send to twitter, they have no concept of the term privacy and selling xmpp to them based on that is impossible
  558. Ge0rG has left
  559. moparisthebest the less nice way to put it is you'd have to sell xmpp to those morons by saying it has prettier stickers

  573. vanitasvitae My Grandmother recently got an iPad for christmas. She had no experience with computers before and hasn't even used a typewriter once in her life (neither have I but thats not the point :D). I did not even think about installing her an XMPP client, because there is *no* simple to use client that I know of (let alone for iOS).

  576. Kev I kinda think Swift is as simple as it can sensibly be, for the very basic cases, but certainly the more complex stuff isn't as straightforward as it could be.

  579. moparisthebest well conversations is simple and pretty, but if you are trying to sell it to someone over whatsapp, I think all I can come up with immediatly is 'privacy' and for morons who are surprised twitter has what they send them, that's a non-argument
  580. vanitasvitae Originally my brother installed her Facetime, but then she couldn't call me, so I installed her Wire instead. Even Wires interface is too complicated (too many buttons and thingies to accidentally tap on). In the end we stayed with Wire, but my brother put the ipad in "guided access" (he basically blocked away many buttons and prevented wire from being closed).
  581. vanitasvitae I havent used swift, so I cannot tell, but conversations is certainly *not* easy to use unfortunately
  582. vanitasvitae at least in my opinion.

  584. moparisthebest why not? my 5yo uses it to message grandma
  585. Dave Cridland has left
  586. moparisthebest she can't even fully read, just simple words
  587. Kev Swift's certainly straightforward enough for my parents, but they can use a web browser and the such too, so that's not as extreme.
  588. Kev Compared with relatives who're unable to work a phone.
  589. daniel Probably depends on the grandma. I wasn't able to teach my grandma to use a feature phone
  590. vanitasvitae moparisthebest, fair enough, most features of conversations are hidden away in menus, so mistake clicks are not made so easily
  591. daniel But then again I can't use Instagram
  592. vanitasvitae still, no encryption by default (I know we are getting there), and for example the green indicator thing doubling up as status indicator (if configured so) and image send button is confusing for starters
  593. daniel And I don't really want to learn it either because that's not my generation
  594. Kev You're too young to instagram?
  595. moparisthebest those users don't need to worry about status ?
  596. moparisthebest (no one really *needs* to from conversations honestly)
  597. Ge0rG has left
  598. Kev Not that I think instagram's the most enriching thing in the world, but ... yeah.
  599. Alex has left
  600. daniel It has a very confusing interface...
  601. vanitasvitae moparisthebest, sure I'm nitpicking here. My point is, that XMPP could still be *even* simpler.
  602. daniel Kev: I was thinking I'm too old? But maybe I'm too young...
  603. moparisthebest vanitasvitae, does conversations even show status without fiddling in advanced options? I didn't think it did
  604. Kev daniel: I think you're younger than me, and a lot of my friends use it (and going down from my age to 25 or so - I don't have many friends below that).
  605. vanitasvitae sure it doesn't point taken :)
  606. Kev But I think we might be digressing :)
  607. Kev As an aside, I think status needs to be seriously rethought and simplified at the protocol level - at least by convention.
  608. Dave Cridland has left
  609. daniel Kev: maybe it's different in the UK? I dont know a single person who actually uses it on a regular basis. I always assumed it was a generation thing. But maybe it's a culture thing
  610. vanitasvitae moparisthebest, some time ago I installed conversations on my fathers phone. It was a hassle to explain OMEMO fingerprints to him.
  611. Kev It could be regional. Back in the day, whether you were MSN/ICQ/Y! etc. was heavily influenced by region.
  612. moparisthebest oh I agree there vanitasvitae , I installed conversations on my mom's phone , trusted my fingerprints, and didn't mention omemo :)
  613. Kev vanitasvitae: I'm not convinced that e2e for all is actually the right thing to do.
  614. Kev Because in order for e2e to be meaningful there are some slightly tricky things that you *have* to deal with, or else have a central entity with too much control.
  615. daniel vanitasvitae: why did you even try to? Leave it in BTBV mode and don't bother with verification
  616. moparisthebest my 5yo doesn't know about omemo either, it just works
  617. vanitasvitae Try to explain him, that some times (when I reinstalled conversations), the fingerprint would change, and what that means
  618. vanitasvitae daniel, that was back, when BTBV didnt exist
  619. vanitasvitae I'm a long time user lol
  620. Link Mauve daniel, how do you enable that btw?
  621. moparisthebest I am convinced XMPP is the *best* (or only) choice for safely creating children's accounts :) https://burtrum.org/kids_firewall.pfw.txt
  622. vanitasvitae Link Mauve, just dont scan somebodies fingerprint :D
  623. Dave Cridland has left
  624. Link Mauve Ok, but you still have to select it in the dropdown (?) menu, right?
  625. Ge0rG has left
  626. vanitasvitae I think no
  627. vanitasvitae but daniel is probably the better one to ask :D
  628. moparisthebest if you mean turn omemo on, yes you still have to do that
  629. moparisthebest (until feb or something? he has a plan to make it default)
  630. daniel Link Mauve: enable BTBV? That's enabled by default. You can disable it in the expert settings
  631. Link Mauve Ok, my parents definitely didn’t do that. :)
  632. Link Mauve I just enabled OMEMO for them between them and with my sister, without saying anything special about it.
  633. jubalh has joined
  634. jonasw I disabled OMEMO everywhere because the interop with non-OMEMO clients on the same account is terrible.
  635. jonasw (and the pidgin-omemo-plugins mess my pidgin up badly, for some reason)
  636. Link Mauve I didn’t enable it with me, because I don’t use it. :p
  637. Link Mauve But they all use Conversations, and some use Dino, so that’s fine.

  655. moparisthebest ha I feel like that's all that is discussed in the dino muc nowadays
  656. moparisthebest the 'one true DE Gnome' dropped systray support so all other DEs should drop it, or something
  657. moparisthebest I disagree, but meh
  658. SamWhited I don't think it was a GNOME thing, I think the Freedesktop spec dropped it, IIRC
  659. SamWhited GNOME and many other DEs follow that
  660. moparisthebest gnome is the only one I know of without a systray
  661. SamWhited It moves faster than others, yes
  662. moparisthebest also iirc Link Mauve said it won't work in wayland either
  663. Link Mauve moparisthebest, my DE also doesn’t have a systray.
  664. Link Mauve I haven’t had one even when I was still on X11.
  665. mathieui I don’t have a systray either
  666. SamWhited Neither does mine (also on X11), although that might not matter much since I'm in a weird MATE/i3 mix and it's pretty heavily customized
  667. Link Mauve moparisthebest, KDE and Unity were the ones who wrote a specification (hosted at fd.o) to support systray on non-X11, but with Unity moving to GNOME I’m not sure where that went.
  668. moparisthebest leave my KDE alone kthx :P
  669. Link Mauve Hmm?
  670. moparisthebest I have been meaning to try something tiling though, maybe i3
  671. moparisthebest (I was just joking around, that I want to keep my systray in KDE)
  672. SamWhited I like i3 a lot, but I've also heard good things about "awesome" (I think that's what it's called)
  673. SamWhited But i3 is firmly in the "good enough" category for me, so I haven't tried anything else
  674. moparisthebest that's how I am with KDE, started with it in 2005ish and just could never switch to anything else
  675. Ge0rG has left
  676. Link Mauve “20:31:17 moparisthebest> (I was just joking around, that I want to keep my systray in KDE)”, if you read what I said again, that’s exactly what I said they are doing. :p
  677. SouL moparisthebest, +1
  678. jonasw SamWhited, if you like i3, awesome isn’t for you :)
  679. jonasw (I say that as a long-time awesome user who switched to i3)
  680. jonasw (because i3 had the single feature I always missed from awesome)
  681. SouL Which is? :)
  682. jonasw SouL, more freely tiling windows. awesome has rather fixed layouts

  685. Zash Having workspaces switchable independencly on each monitor is pretty nice
  686. jonasw Zash, yeah, that too
  687. SamWhited My only real problem with i3 is that I haven't found a good way to swap easily between the 1080p screen on my laptop and a 4k external monitor
  688. SamWhited (although luckily the only external monitor I use right now is also 1080p, so it stopped being a problem)
  689. SamWhited has left
  690. Zash Swap how?
  691. Ge0rG has left
  692. SamWhited pluging in a 4k monitor everything on it is tiny, if I make it bigger when I unplug it the bar eats half my screen
