Alright, I'm setting up our tilde, finally.

I think I've got the apache ./~ config figured out, I've done that half a dozen times before, but I need to remember how to set up local only email, IRC, and ... uhhh...

What other software and configs are essential for a tilde generally, and oen targeted at new users specifically?

A hyper local MUD, mapped to a town, and where ever you happen to log in from, that is where you come online IN the MUD.... AND IF YOU GO TO PLACES IN THE TOWN (like the coffeeshop) YOU CAN INTERACT WITH THEM IN WAYS THAT HAVE REAL WORLD CONSEQUENCES (like coffee being ordered)!!!!!!

@rgegriff @ajroach42 when "high speed" internet became a thing, I was living in silicon valley, and my coffee shop of choice set up one of the first consumer webcams pointing out from the register so one could look and see how long the lines were before deciding to go down and get coffee and it was life altering. this is truly augmenting reality - the rest is gimmicky video game stuff to sell eyeballs to corps.

@rgegriff @ajroach42 that's not to say I don't want the gimmicky video game stuff, because it can be awesome too, being able to paint pixels over reality consensually, but it'll be a while yet before we have the right tools in the hands of the people instead of the profitseekers

@djsundog @ajroach42 let the profitseekers build the toys. We can subvert it like we always have.
