I’ve used it. It works great! Shuffle mode isn’t quite as varied as I’d like, but beyond that, it’s a really great music player.

I’ve replaced Signal with SimpleX, and for SMS I use Simple SMS Messenger.

Linux Mint has been my daily driver for the last 4 years when I got tired of Windows bullshit. It has proven to be stable, regularly updated and secure. It does absolutely everything that I need it to (yes, including gaming), and I’ve never felt compelled to try anything else.

SimpleX appears to be a worthy alternative to Signal. And it doesn’t require a phone number.

I take regular vacations from social media and video games and use the time to try to actually engage with people and nature on a face-to-face basis. It usually works wonders for me.

This is what I currently have on rotation:

  • Conan: Exiles
  • Project Zomboid
  • Lord of the Rings Online
  • Song of Iron
  • Generation Zero

The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings trilogy. You can’t go wrong with Tolkien.

I think any person or group who actively works to harm the people or institutions of a democratic nation through illegal or violent means should have their citizenship revoked.

My my my…gitlab is looking better and better all the time…

I use the EXCELLENT ‘Feedbro’ addon for Firefox on PC, and the similarly EXCELLENT ‘Feeder’ on Android. Both are open source with no ads, no subscriptions and no bullshit. Check them out!!

It’s pretty difficult to truly understand circumstances that one has never experienced. Sure, you can read about them or watch a movie, etc…but there will always be something lacking that will likely prove pretty jarring if one should ever be in a position to experience the real thing. At best, we create elaborate fantasies in our minds to accommodate the gaps in our experience - and that’s usually when reality slaps us in the face. =)

I’d love to see more positive news/posts on lemmy. There ARE good, even great things happening out there that never quite seem to get the attention they deserve. You’d be surprised at what a difference a little positivity will make in one’s life.

Most definitely. There is a lot that is wrong in the world right now, but being bombarded by hundreds of posts about the same terrible things every day is just not good for anyone’s mental health. These days, I just steer-clear of overly negative groups and posters.

I understand the privacy aspects of TOR, and I fully support the idea of the TOR Browser, but holy jumped-up jesus on a birch-bark canoe is it fucking slow…

When it takes, on average, almost five minutes for ANY webpage I try to access to load, that’s just not a useable browser, imho. This is 2022, not 1995. is what I’ve switched to. I quite like it so far. Open Source and highly customizable and more private than the others out there.

Your operating system is software, and it seamlessly integrates everything you’ve mentioned! Sorry, I’m in a weird mood…

It’s open source. Anyone can take it over and contribute bug fixes and new features. Let’s hope someone does. I’m not a fan of K-9 Mail…

Yes. They’re called assholes.

If it’s a matter of hygiene, then I would listen. If it’s a matter of personal taste, then I would see whether I share their taste. It’s pretty simple, really. I don’t want to be offensive, so that tends to be my compass.

Well, I’m both employed and happily married, but you can bet if my boss or my wife told me I needed to use deodorant, I wouldn’t argue with them. C’mon, man.

Your parent keep bringing it up because your smell is offensive. They’re trying to help you learn the things that will help you get a job, or have friends, or go on dates. In short, they’re being a parent. Help them help you.

Ah well, hope you enjoy it anyway! I’d be interested to learn what your new friend uses to give it ‘Puerto Rican flavor’! Cooking is allllllll about evolution! :D

Crazy busy at work, but I’m doing great. Thanks for asking!

Thankfully, the recipe is super easy. You’ve got it made, my friend! :)

Let me know how it turns out & what you think. I serve this with jasmine rice. :)

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Prep Time: 5 m | Cook Time: 10 m | Servings: 8


1/2 cup Parmesan cheese 1/8 cup butter, softened 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1/4 teaspoon dried basil 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/8 teaspoon onion powder 1/8 teaspoon celery salt 2 pounds tilapia fillets


  1. Preheat oven broiler. Grease broiling pan or line with aluminum foil.

  2. Mix Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder, and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.

  3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip fillets over and broil for 2 or 3 minutes more.

  4. Remove fillets from oven and cover with Parmesan mixture on top side. Broil until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 2 minutes.

I had the same issue on an older version of Android, but not the latest version.

I imagine via donations like most other open source projects.

Your criticism is based upon an experience from ‘a few years ago’. Maybe give the latest build a try.

I really love the idea(s) behind Briar, and I’m excited to see how this critical piece of software evolves. Right now, what I’d like to see implemented most would be the ability to sync ‘accounts’ between different devices like my phone, PC, tablet, etc.

I like it a lot. I honestly don’t give two shits about federation. The UI is attractive and logical and everything does what I want it to do. I wanted a Discord clone that was open source and doesn’t spy on me. Revolt is just that, and I love it.

I am much, much happier since I started using Freetube and Newpipe. When I can watch the content I want to see on other platforms like Peertube, I’ll happily switch. Until then, Freetube and Newpipe are godsends.

Happy holidays, everyone!!!
