If it’s bad, but a media you need to consume for whatever reason, it can be over faster


Is that a good thing? If the media is good, don’t you want time to think about it and ponder what might happen next?


Neither am I, but it’s a pretty decent article. Straight to the point with more details later.


It feels like upvotes don't have enough weight in the algorithm, as the order is almost always newest-comments-first

In most parts of the world, it tells us which bathroom to go into. If that’s something that’s sexist or needs to change, sure I won’t debate you on that, but I’ll definitely tell you that your priorities are whack.


I’m preparing by having the most fun I’ve ever had. Moving abroad, chilling with friends, and focusing on hobbies. If I was single maybe I’d be holding random girls at night too. YOLO


It is literally the only thing the account does


What did the Viet people ever do to you, @yorma?

Vietnamese people must be pretty passive if you have to go all the way back to 2019 to find a case of organized crime.

Sounds like it’s returning an HTML page with an error. Check the logs


Yea, it’s in South Korea. I had the chance to go, but didn’t. Regret is strong, never going to say no to something like this again ㅠㅠ


Can’t believe you brought up Seo Dan, I’m about to cry lmao. That show fucked me up. Excited to forget about it then watch it again.


What happened to Seo Dan was gut wrenching. My girlfriend actually just came back from a musical a few hours ago of the show. Here’s a never-seen-before online pic :D


All I’m saying is when people don’t stand by their values when their values actually matter, they don’t have values, they have hobbies


My bad, dropped the words “do not condone”. Comment is also sarcasm. Read again now.


Thankfully people are venting in a controllable fashion online. It’s important we do not condone acts like Jan 6 or other uprisings that threaten the status quo.


I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this community. You take out the politics and you’ll be left with… Nothing.

There’s some great instances like Beehaw that might be more up your ally


Don’t strive for equality, strive for your goals. If your goals are an abstract idea you’re kinda weird dude


For me, I put my pride aside and watched K-Dramas.

After watching Crash Landing On You (Torrent Link), a story about a South Korean woman who finds herself in North Korea, my life was a complete emotional wreck for months. If I ever get Alzheimer’s, I’ll be happy knowing I can rewatch this continuously.


What are you glad you did before you died?
"debated more NATO shills/tankies on Lemmy" probably won't be on that list

I’d rather it this way than on Reddit where nobody knows shit




Point 1 refers to the “Name” and “Display name”. For example it’s cumbersome to have cases like “Programmer Humor” pointing to “/c/programmerhumor” and “Lemmy Support” pointing to “/c/lemmy_support”




Snap actually sucks. This isn't even a meme.
Upgraded Ubuntu to 22.04, where Firefox is Snap by default. Wasn't going to fight it, especially since Canonical has made 3 blog posts talking about how much faster they made Firefox on Snap. Since then, I've had subtle but annoying issues. * Can't Google things that have a colon after the first word- i.e. `error: file not found` doesn't work * I get *notifications* for pending updates * Other apps like Gnome's Software take a minute+ to load on my beefy computer This isn't even a meme. Snap is trash. I wanted to be neutral and not join the "hate train" but seriously. Snap is that bad.

Lemmy.ml link blocked on LinkedIn for being "general malware"

MIT and BSD are cuckold licenses
I would say "change my mind" but I won't. I spent 5 years believing \*maybe\* I was missing something about them, but no, these are licenses selected 49.5% of the time for the wrong reason, 49.5% of the time because the original project devs were cucks, and 1% of the time because they're trying to replace a corporate dominant proprietary solution (which is the only valid usecase for these licenses). If you're a FOSS dev, have some self respect and choose a proper license.

Looking for an Open Source program to automatically seed latest project torrents
Hey Lemmy - I was downloading the KDE Neon edition ISOs yesterday night and noticed there weren't many seeders for the nightly edition. It gave me the idea to write a program that automatically grabs the .torrent file for lots of FOSS projects and throws them on my seedbox every night, but before I reinevent the wheel, does something like this exist? Qbittorrent has a Python API so the code isn't complicated, but with a bit of Google-foo I wasn't able to find something like this already, which kind of blows my mind tbh. Does Lemmy know?

What are some good charities to donate to on behalf of someone for Christmas?
My family is fairly well off, and nobody needs anything. We have a poor tradition of buying gifts nobody needs. I've spoken with some of my family and we're going to change this to make Christmas about giving to those in need. Unfortunately, everyone has slightly different interests and I'm having a hard time coming up with impactful charities for various family members. **Does anyone know of some (global or Canadian) charities in these categories?** * Environment * Animals * Human Rights/Poverty * Technology Some charities I've got so far: * [The Water Project](https://thewaterproject.org/) (Human Rights) * [Software Freedom Conservancy](https://sfconservancy.org/donate/) (Technology) * [Godot](https://godotengine.org/donate) (Technology) * [Doctors Without Borders](https://www.doctorswithoutborders.ca/donate) (Human Rights) Any suggestions appreciated (:. Share this post with your family if you want to start something like this too!

I have a $50 prepaid Mastercard. Where is a place I can donate it to open source?
The Mastercard is in CAD and I don't have a Paypal account. Where's the easiest place I can donate it? Edit: Donated it to KDE through Paypal without registering an account

Anyone know where I can buy a longer engine oil stick?
My check oil light is on, but my engine oil stick doesn't reach the oil. I want to check how much oil I have though, so it's not very helpful. Google says just add more oil, but I don't know how much oil I already have. Can someone tell me what to do here?
