Sharing my media collection with friends:

- rsync/scp/ftp is fragile for big files, firewall/NAT problems
- #bittorrentsync went payware
- #dropbox / #onedrive / #icloud are payware at this scale (and evil)
- #bittorrent needs manual creation of torrent files, no browsing
- #retroshare has no ipv6; linux crashes
- #syncthing isn't made for this, fiddly settings needed to avoid accidentally propagating deletes.
- #nextcloud not made for this, PITA to install, firewall issues.

Suggestions?

Just had a visceral experience today regarding how destructive and manipulative #Facebook (and other corporate #socialmedia platforms) is.
