I’ve been having this recurring issue with Beaker where put in a dat url, load the site, I’m reading through it and suddenly - wham, “It doesn’t seem like anybody is sharing this site right now.”
Well, someone was sharing this site twenty seconds ago. I doubt they took it down. And if I open a new tab & navigate to the same dat, half the time it will load – briefly… before going down again.
What gives? This issue is really frustrating and, frankly, doesn’t make sense when you consider the fact that I can load sites in the first place, before losing them.
Honestly I’m having a lot problems with Mastodon too, can’t follow or reply to anyone from different instances. “Trouble looking up the remote account.” I guess P2P is harder than it looks. It’s making me wonder if it’s worth the effort, honestly.
