I’d be interested in how the fact that the Tor browser in Tails has uBlock Origin pre-installed affects the security/anonymity of the browser instance. I’m all for blocking ads and trackers everywhere, but since regular Tor doesn’t have an ad blocker, wouldn’t fingerprinters be able to identify at least that you’re on Tails and not a normal OS? And therefore also know when you change where you’re accessing Tor from?
(Also, I totally thought this was referring to Tails from Sonic for a second lol)
The way I see it, they ruined ads for themselves and it’s not our fault for hating them enough to want to get rid of them. If ads didn’t make the web literally unusable, steal our data, consume more system resources than the site itself, and be a portal for malware, people would be more accepting of them to support websites.
This is a textbook greed leads to ruin tale, like cyberpunk Aesop.
Short answer: you can’t be because Lemmy and cPanel are based on different software architectures.
Long answer: First, as far as I know cPanel can only deploy PHP app, which most open source forums are. Lemmy is written in Rust and is executed differently to generate a website. Second, Lemmy has its own server that connects to the web host’s server in a process called reverse proxying, and it does this by having a main “Lemmy” program constantly running as long as the site is live, just like the web server it connects to. This works very differently from PHP, where each webpage is a separate very small program that runs when the page is called, and then exits when the page render is complete.

You know cooking? That thing that allowed humans’ brains to develop and significantly reduced food related infection and is the single most important invention in the entire history of our species and one of the major things that allowed us to be where we are now? Believe it or not, that’s called processing.
Honestly, their “make money while you browse while making money for your favorite websites all while maintaining privacy” thing is so on the nose for “too good to be true” that I’m genuinely disappointed by how many people who are supposedly pro privacy and FLOSS development fall for it. If someone promises the world, they’re almost always either misguidedly deceiving themselves, or maliciously deceiving you.
Hydrogen is a potential mitigation for the peak use vs peak production issue of renewables. Think of hydrogen tanks less like conventional fuel but batteries, with higher energy density by volume and simpler engineering and less resource intensivs to manufacture compared to lithium ion.
Also, if you have a lot of tracks, the resistive and inductive losses of overhead wiring can actually put your energy efficiency below batteries or even hydrogen. Also, maintaining overhead wires and associated poles and gantries can both be more expensive and consume more resources than batteries or hydrogen. It can double the infrastructure costs per distance of track. What is the most efficient or cost effecrive system all things considered depends on factors like how much track you have, how often the trains run and how much power they draw, and whether you can use any tricks like dynamic electrification that turn off when no train is passing by. Though this is more of a problem with long distance heavy rail that runs less frequently.
Not necessarily. You’re thinking of liquid hydrogen, which is definitely widely used, but almost all consumer hydrogen powered stuff, like cars, use compressed hydrogen, which is the same as the compressed natural gas you get from the municipal mainlines. Actually, compressed natural gas is used in vehicles too, but usually busses and trucks and not so much personal cars.
PSA: If you don’t absolutely need ARM or the really tiny form factor and can settle for higher power consumption, you can get a used Dell or Lenovo business PC from a few years ago for less than a new Raspberry Pi or even some of the higher end alternatives/clones but with similar computing power. Or something a lot more powerful for not that much more.
I really like their ultra-small form factor models. About the size of a coffee table book so not that much larger than a raspi with a case, and if you factor in the fairly high quality case, more I/O, active cooling, non-soldered CPU and RAM, and expansion through hard drive slots and M.2, it’s an even better value.
