They continue to amaze me… Then again, this is the kind of things one should expect from such projects with such companies behind them. The undergoing “discussion” is a good laugh at the very least.

Never heard of this project. It sure sounds like an interesting and highly needed project in this day and age. I am interested in seeing where it goes from here. Although, as has been already mentioned earlier, the site definitely requires more work to be done on UX in general. Nevertheless, if there are more invites left, I think I might try to add a few reviews up there myself.

Today I learned. Interesting. I did not know about this at all. Never mind, then.

This is the first licence that came to my mind as well. I think it should be what we are looking for here. Not ideal for static linking, though (see other replies to this comment).

I personally use Bitwarden as a cloud solution and KeePass (KeePassXC for desktop and KeePassDX for mobile phone) as a local solution (I sync KeePass password database with Syncthing across all my devices).

If you do not trust Bitwarden, you can always self-host your own Bitwarden server (I would use vaultwarden, an unofficial Bitwarden-compatible server written in Rust).

Alternatively, if you do not want your data to be stored on any server whatsoever, KeePass with decentralized synchronization between devices with Syncthing works really great for me.

I hope you find what you are looking for.

Gigablast and Private.sh implement some nice ideas, but these engines have always seemed a bit shady to me. I am yet to see any proof or at least an opinion implying the opposite.

“Welcome, everyone. So, we have decided to remove the ‘Don’t be evil.’ from our branding as it no longer represents the moral values our company holds and we strive to achieve. That is all for today. Have a nice rest of the week.”

Yeah, there are a few such apps, which would work just as well. However, as you say, they do not provide proxies. It is then up to each one of us to decide what our intent and threat model is. I hope you find what works best for you.

I would use any privacy-respecting FOSS frontend for Reddit (such as Libreddit, Teddit, etc.). Only when (if) you need to comment, you have to go through all the Reddit bloat.

Surprisingly, Lorien truly looks great. I am eager to try it out.

I would say this is a completely fair and valid point of view. It definitely has its uses. As I said earlier, it could make a nice issue, if you feel like proposing it.

Alternatively, one could make a custom CSS or custom filter for uBlock Origin, for example, to hide the score from your page.

I believe this could make a nice issue for the Lemmy project: Allowing to completely hide voting from the user interface as an instance default option (with option in user settings to turn it back on for themselves).

Yeah, I agree that this is not ideal in the least, but there is nothing better to prevent some communities overtaking over your feed yet.

Same for me. What I do is subscribe to communities I am interested in and show only subscribed feed. Then federation came and I wanted to be able to see other posts too, so I just abuse the communities blocking feature to block everything I am not interested in while having all as my default main page filter. After a while, I was able to block most of the unwanted communities and now I have mostly interesting posts in my all feed.

What really helped me is to use Jerboa on Android to quickly block communities straight from the posts (that is something I would probably welcome in web app, too). It is much quicker than having to go to the profile settings.

The shadows create an interesting effect when they collide with each other. Someone was having fun modifying the configuration values.

Oh, such wonderful news. I am so glad Marcel (M66B) seems to be doing better. I hope everything will work out for him in the future, both with the changes and in life. Even more so because FairEmail is an amazing piece of SW and absolutely essential for me.

Arch has a setup script now. People say it is actually pretty good, if you know what you are doing. But that really is not something a newbie to the GNU/Linux world should be trying out (and planning to get any real work done with that system) unless they want to just have some fun. If you want some real work done on a working out-of-the-box system, using Arch setup scripts to install a clean Arch is definitely not the way. If one wants a working out-of-the-box Arch system (with all the Arch advantages but without any hassle connected to Arch installation), I would suggest going with ArcoLinux. Their excellent customized Calamares installer with plenty of options to choose from is a great way to get an Arch system working in no time. However, it is simply an Arch system, so you have to be prepared to solve the issues coming with a rolling distro and all that. Not a thing I would recommend to someone without the knowledge of Linux or the time to learn about Linux before the system can be used as a daily driver.

But I agree that there always seems to be some problems with Manjaro here and there. Endeavour OS seems as a good choice for a working Arch system, too. However, they are all just Arch Linux. I would not recommend them for a newbie unless there is a good reason to use only them and nothing else.

Therefore, I think that Fedora is a great choice for what is required in this case.

I would say that Debian-based distros (Linux Mint and LMDE, preferably) are good for a newbie, too. But a clean Debian would probably be a bit too much of a hassle to set everything up, in my opinion.

Hey, most SW in the GNU/Linux world is designed to allow you to personalize it to your liking. And if you do not like what one application looks like, you can just switch to another which could suit you better. Bear in mind that desktop environments (GNOME, KDE, Cinnamon, etc. – the overall layout and look of your system) are just like other applications, in this sense. Fedora ships with the GNOME environment by default, but if you want something more customizable with the Windows-like layout (or any other layout, customize to the oblivion), KDE Plasma (shown above) could work for you as well. There are plenty of others desktop environment, each with their specifics and differences. Start slow, and if you feel adventurous, feel free to look around and try them.

That being said, Fedora should be a perfectly suitable GNU/Linux distribution for you to start with. After all, it is just an OS, allowing you to run the applications you work with. If you want to have a backup solution, start with dual-booting with Windows, possibly removing Windows later altogether, if you feel like it.

Many distributions (such as Fedora, Ubuntu, Arch Linux, etc.) will give you an option to send some basic telemetry data, but there usually is a way to opt-out, if telemetry is not off by default. And otherwise, the distributions themselves do not collect much data, if any (not the applications you use on them – that would depend on the application altogether, proprietary applications especially, of course).

That is interesting. I have never heard of anyone requesting Thunderbird for Android, but if there is a demand for this app, glad to hear they try to deliver.

Then you must specify that it is meant to be a sarcasm, though. Sarcasm cannot be identified in a written text without a non-verbal communication, speaker’s posture, voice intonation or body language. We cannot tell when you are being sarcastic and when serious otherwise.

Oh, I see the culprit. Consider the following.

You have here:


but you want here:


Without the https, the text parser handles the link as a local link related to the website itself (In Markdown, you can link – redirect – to other files in the filesystem. Websites supporting Markdown often reimplement this behaviour, as seen here.). I should have checked the source first before posting myself. I have already seen a few posts with this issue.

I can imagine the set would look really nice and cute. It would still be pretty usable, I think, too. What a great idea.

It sure helps me when I feel like having a shower in the morning. All it takes is to force yourself to get out of bed and walk the short distance to the bathroom. Then, in about 2 minutes after you wake up, you are completely awake, full of energy and (at least in my case) happy and ready for the day. No more morning grogginess, fatigue or grumpiness that it is morning again. I would encourage you to try it. It might not work for you, but if it does, it changes mornings completely.

Looking fantastic. Good work.

Creative. I will have to do the same, I presume.

And I absolutely agree. This would be a great QoL feature.

I agree. And I got you with the meaning of bad news. I would say it is the right approach. Cannot talk for others, though. Thank you for extending the fediverse.

I hope you feel better soon.

If something doesn’t go our way it’s a bad moment, the whole day isn’t bad.

I would say this is generally true, but it can also mean that when we have a good/bad moment, these moments tend to affect how we behave for the rest of the day. Furthermore, how we see the rest of the day. Therefore, bad moments can lead to a bad day as well as good moments can make us deliriously happy for the remainder of the day, which we would call a good day. If multiple moments occur, the feeling is just that stronger one way or the other.

That sounds nice. Yeah, I agree with how you see the community goals.

Thinking about it now, I might not be the only one without a clear understanding of which topics should I post to which community. If I were you, I would probably even explain the difference in the community sidebar where the link to !pixelfed@lemmy.ml community is with something like:

General Pixelfed discussion community: [!pixelfed@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/c/pixelfed) 

If this is bad news I’m sure I’ll hear about it :D

I do not understand what do you mean. What could be (possibly) bad news and why? I can see nothing wrong about this. Just curious why would you think it could be bad news in some way.

Is there any difference in the goals of the communities !pixelfed@lemmy.ml and !frompixelfed@sopuli.xyz? Is it that !frompixelfed@sopuli.xyz is focused purely on finding creators instead of general Pixelfed-related discussion as in !pixelfed@lemmy.ml?

It does support Piped. However, LibRedirect uses random instance every redirect. LibRedirect does not sort instances by latency, as far as I know. You can customize the list of used instances with the ones with good latency, though.

I would say this cannot be a step in a wrong direction. And if you feel adventurous, you might want to start exploring how your browser can be hardened to ensure better privacy. Or you can install pre-hardened forks of Fennec. The beauty in this is that you actually have the choice. Many proprietary browsers do not give you that. Have fun and enjoy.

Fennec is just like Firefox, only for mobile phones. LibreWolf is a privacy-oriented hardened fork of Firefox. Mull is practically the same as LibreWolf, only for mobile phones. It is a privacy-oriented hardened fork of Fennec. You can get the same results as Mull or LibreWolf with Fennec or Firefox, if you adjust the Fennec or Firefox settings accordingly. I usually say that if you use LbreWolf, you should use Mull on mobile phones.

Bromite is a Chromium-based browser which, in my opinion, means unusable on mobile phones. It lacks many features and (as I feel it) the UX is terrible from the usability perspective. However, I would say that Bromite is the closest you can get to Ungoogled Chromium on mobile phones. Privacy-wise, Bromite browser should be a good choice if you want/need Chromium-based browser. However, there are some perks of using Bromite one might find pretty useful. For example, see @beta_tester@lemmy.ml’s comment here.

Actually, the fzf functionality in zoxide is exactly what I wanted from both z and autojump. zoxide looks super neat.

I did not think about torrent links at all. That is actually a really neat idea.

Ah, exactly. I very much exercise this precise technique to backup all of my work and personal files. It could be a good comedy, once my PC breaks up, to watch me go through all the different services (external HDDs, NAS, distributed content on my other devices, Git repositories and so on) to set up my PC once again. Another TODO in the never ending list of what to do next.

I am surprised one does not see more mentions of Mull browser for Android. It is a privacy-hardened fork of Fenix with proprietary blobs removed and enabling upstreamed features from Tor Uplift. Otherwise, LibreWolf for desktop without a doubt, in my opinion.
