is it just me or is ipfs way faster recently? peer discovery, even just accesing files on your own node is snappier. my 150gb+ repo’s always been a tad slow, but now it’s surprisingly quick.

ipfs contributors’re kicking ass!

what are you utilizing IPFS for? I always struggle to find use for it.

I use it for my blog. If you have metamask installed it will resolve nullradix.eth using ethereum and if you have IPFS companion it will load the site from IPFS.

i’ve been thinking on starting an ipfs webring (remember those?). the centralized web may’ve outgrew them, but dweb clearly hasn’t. want in?

Sure, would be good motivation to start writing again.

i use it to host most sites on my server and for a file-host (filenames redirection via HTTP, data over IPFS).

if you look at the DNS records of xwx.moe, you’ll see how you can host an HTTP site on IPFS— redirect to a gateway, with a TXT record containing the hash. it’s super-cool.

as for everyday use, i don’t use it too much either. there just aren’t enough cool sites or blogs that are on IPFS, y’know? i only have five bookmarked, at least.
