Every time I think I've encountered all the different proposed file transmission protocols from the late 1970s, I find another. Notably:
- FTP (File Transfer Protocol, the "winner", though there were DOZENS of sub-implementations of this over the years)
- BTF (Bulk Transfer Function)
- FMP (File Management Protocol, Michel Gien, CYCLADES 1976)
- DTP (Data Transfer Protocol, Stenning)
Here's a 1975 RFC called "Leaving Well Enough Alone" which is complaining about FTP(s) https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc686
@darius want to turn this into one of those “what are your kids texting about” memes
FTP - full time pug
BTF - butts trucks fucks
FMP - fuck my pug
DTP - down to pug
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
