(#6bwqvpq) No, I haven’t. points to a web host that wouldn’t let me host a broker. I’ve got a VPS and some other domains, I just haven’t done it.

I couldn’t figure out the client, anyway. I couldn’t see my messages, and when I run salty-chat read I only got one message at a time. I haven’t touched it in a long time, though, so maybe things improved.


(#ix5mbfa) How long does the battery last? I’m skeptical of electric yard equipment like that. I had to borrow an electric string trimmer a few weeks ago. Piece of garbage! It struggled to cut through anything, and the battery died in less than 20 minutes. I don’t think it was a real inexpensive one, either.

I’ll have my real gas one (that would cut your leg off) running by the time the weeds come back.
