Are you using any of the phone apps, or a web browser? In order to help you we ned to know a little more about how you access Lemmy.

Edit: probably you are accessing with a web browser, reading your post again.

Not afaik, but the distinction subscribed - local - all might make more sense for Lemmy given it’s intended purposes.

From Lemmy I think, I had the same problem when remote subbing from Beehaw. Resubscribing seemed to have solved it for me though.

I have been using it for a bit since yesternight, so far I like it although I still kind of have to get used to it (I have been out of the habit of microblogging for like 6 or 7 years).

The UI is actually quite nice, with pretty good looking themes. There is a distinction between “global” (known network), “local” (your instance), and “social” (mostly people you follow), as well as “recommended” timelines. Features like channels I might explore some time in the future, so currently cannot say much about them.

Onboarding works quite nice with how you are being guided through filling in a profile, selecting a first few people to follow and writing a first post.

My Lemmy profile page shows my Calckey account, for those of you who wish to follow me. 😁


Especially for those in the States. Nevertheless, good (dad) joke.

You mean I should have used an Invidious instance? I will do that next time if that is a rule (I understand why it could be one).

There probably are many reasons to doubt the likelyhood of using Discord, lol.

Then again, what query would I have to use on Searx (or any other search engine) to find more info whether any official from the Pi Foundation would have made those claims in the first place?

And what are you trying to communicate with that?

I have read some news on it a while ago and I still think everything got a bit overblown. I do not remember at this point ( I got bigger stuff to care about RN, like possibly most of us do right now), but was that officer not even actually hired but rather a community contributor instead? Plus, surveillance does not have to be against citizens but could also be against organised crime rings. I do understand that cops can be proverbial bastards (especially in the US and certain developing nations and dictatorships), but are some activists and netizens not overreacting a bit?

And what is your reply* for kind of comment anyway, after your showcase of maturity (/s) when calling something more akin to a potential (massive) PR blunder, “trolling”.

*Your “have it your way” remark.

Not sure on the veracity of all that, but I doubt that a company (or rather their PR team) would “troll” people.

Most SBCs would be too large to fit inside headphones, lol. And tbh, I do not get the RPI hate that pops up in a lot of places recently.

Well, if I were to remove my generalisation on age out of my comment, what would that make you think of it?

For the record, there are millennials who are now in their early forties.

I suspect (but never tried to test this) that the fedi in its current form mostly targets the ideologists (left and right), the tech savvy and (when generalising a bit on age) Gen X and younger. Ideally this would not be the case but right now it is what it is.

I am thinking for quite a while now that you should not take that blog too seriously. Not just for still having that typo in “kernel” after all this time, and usually not even really discussing kernels in the first place (afaik). But indeed for things like you mention.

I think OP was thinking more along the lines of those “content creators” with their shopping vlogs or similar.

About once or twice a day.

Does that include any server that has “yes” in the signups column?

As I pointed out in your other thread about this, Atomic Frontier.

I think we need far more context to give you a useful answer.

That is mostly lemmy.ml, lemmygrad.ml etc. Beehaw is chill.

The Falconeer (good Indie game, btw). I definitely would not be able to fly on the back of large birds dogfighting with others doing the same. I would not fare well as a sailor either (another big sector of the game world’s economy, at least when considering what NPCs are often doing). So I would be stuck on one of the countless islands not really making a living. Indeed there is the Mancer Order, who have a lot of workplaces in archives, libraries etc. (besides more manual labour) but unless they make good enough spectacles (their tech is still not ours) I would not be of much use to them either.

The official app for Lemmy is known as “Jerboa for Lemmy” in the Play Store. It works pretty well.
