Not only that, but my God, everything in Discord is called something different, moved God knows where and... I mean, if you're not used to it, it probably saved you some time. I get Pidgin, etc so get off my lawn. Though I'll probably try this other group sometime. Invite?

Anyone noticing the most active post we've had in ages was started by a spammer?
Maybe you need an invite?
This URL definitely works for me:

Well, in certain ways the fiasco with the way LC just dumped the Open Source version
resembles a really cheesy 1970s porn movie . . .

Also I'm on the 'HyperCard' Discord server, and so is the StackSmith/Hammer(the xTalk)/Leonie(VM) creator Uli Kluster.
I suggest you guys hang there, some interesting and technical posts on there. And it's OK to talk about ANY xTalks there (per the admin). I will be popping in there from time to time. Discord is a bit weird IMO though.

Still making progress I think and also plotting out the next moves.

Did some preliminary research a while back into wrapping the Emscripten/HTML5 Engine with Electron (which includes Chromium v8 or v9 engines and Node.js, macOS universal native runtimes).

You can install Electron and something called 'natifier' with 'Homebrew' on macOS, from most Linux repos, as well as in FreeBSD Ports list.
Natifier will wrap ANY web-site as an app, cross-platform in that it runs on any platform that has chromium and node builds.

nativefier --name 'OpenXTalkietron' 'https://openxtalk-org.github.io/OpenXTalk-Playground/''

I have become very interested in all of this stuff lately, wrapping JS, WASM modules, HTML5 APIs, Node libraries, and I really think there's a case to made there for enabling OXT to be hardware agnostic into the future, not to mention gaining all of the benefits of a web rendering engine and full access to everything JavaScript and Node.js, including OS native things and shell access, as well as being able to run in multiple processes (similar in architecture to Crhome which runs each web-page in it's own process).
Additionally the work done to port the Engine is very interesting to me, I mean web assembly is still intermediate but it's compiled so its faster than interpreted, but its compiled into a hardware agnostic bytecode format (very much like Extension Builder does).
Obviously more of the engine can be either compiled into .wasm modules or hooked in to any chromium APIs or APIs that exist in our Electron wrapper engine (which includes API for native file system access, among other extremely useful APIs), or hooked into a Node library, or even hooked into a C++ library via JS FFI (just as Extension Builder has the ability to do).

If not the entire IDE running inside Electron (or similar such as DeskGap) wrapper via the Emscripten engine, then at minimum I would want there to at least be an Electron wrapper as a deploy option for that HTML5 tab of standalone builder (the one that currently contains only a single check-box).

What a super picture.

HOWEVER my comment was another desperate comment to persuade 'someone' to actually do what they stated they were going
to do when they set these forums up, as soon as is humanly possible.

Let's hope that this is not done Elvis-style, who, however good a singer he was (and there's something one can waste hours on debating),
was an almost totally uneducated truck-driver.

So... if our forum-master was present, what's with the post existing? As a mod, rip out the contents of the first post; just blank it out or something?

Edit: I reported it, of course.

It seems like Elvis may have left the building.
Elvis IS in the building, in the basement studio, snacking on fried peanut-butter and banana sandwiches and ripping off blues song writers.

Haha, don't worry - I'm not taking offence, or the gates with it.
It's quite hard to get me stirred up. Life's too short. I just want to see some progress, like anyone.

Righto.
Just wondered if we had more of an active way of preventing messages like that link.
What if new users were to have all their new posts approved first (say, up to the first 5) - at that point, we'd know if they were genuine and can let them contribute. This would weed out any spurious posts.

Just a thought.
Many thanks.

When these messages are reported (and I reported this one) they CAN be removed, but that presupposes an active
Forum-master: and as there has been NO sign whatsoever of anything like that for at least 2 weeks . . .

I'm sick of these spam posts.
Are these spam posters accounts deleted when they post something like the above message?
Or, I'll gladly remove them if I had the permissions to do so.
