What would happen if I use tor browser while using archtorify? I find it helpful to be able to change the tor circuit with a button. I wish there was something like that in firefox when using torify.
I think I’ll modify archtorify to change the circuit every so often. Perhaps I can check for internet speed and choose different circuits until it’s above a given speed.
Don’t know if this goes here or in /AskLemmy, but just wanted to know the best FOSS social networks, why are there so good? What would be the propietary equivalent?
FOSS social networks don’t sell your data or show you adds. Have you heard of alternativeto.net? You can see the different open source alternatives to any software you want in there
I think mozilla TTS is the best. But I think this questions should have been asked in Open Source.
The problem is that there is a scary red banner in the wiki that says:
Warning: AUR helpers are not supported by Arch Linux. You should become familiar with the manual build process in order to be prepared to troubleshoot problems.
I don’t what to find out what they’ll do to me if I go and ask there XD. Kidding, I actually hadn’t seen it.
pop doesn’t support folders, just an inbox. it’s old and basic
mutt-wizard is quick and very clever and will probably give you a working config, but it can contain a lot of detail that you might not need or understand
oh, local folders. if you try to save to them, I think they should be created
Dimowner/AudioRecorder worked fine.
This seems helpful but after following it I still don’t see any italics. Perhaps I haven’t configured it properly in neovim.
I fracking hate discord. People use it for everything now, not just gaming, for the convenience of an easy to use cross-platform application. Almost every message board on the internet has been deserted and moved to discord. And it makes it so difficult to find anything useful. Every time I want to find something there I feel as if no matter how much time I spend using the search I’m never going to find it. And when I ask I feel as if the same question has probably been asked hundreds of times before and makes me feel dumb for not being able to find the answer. If you read the messages as they arrive, with just a couple of servers that you follow, your day is gone and you can’t do anything else. Of course it makes it convenient not having to create an account for each website like before, but so does the fediverse. I won’t even go into the privacy concerns I have with so many people feeding their life into discord’s database.
The thing is that you have to choose the lesser of two evils, on one side if you don’t use Tor there is the NSA logging everything and on the other there are some malicious exit nodes between many that aren’t.
I have most applications traffic blocked anyway, with Invizible Pro, and the rest of the apps are routed through Tor using a VPN.
The point of federation is that each instance has it’s own unique selling point.
Dividing instances by interests makes sense in sites like Mastodon but not in Lemmy because Lemmy already has a way to select what interests you. People like what the rest of the people use because they don’t want to marginalize themselves, so I guess there will always be one instance used by most and the rest used by few.
In my opinion it would be better to have a main peertube that displayed the most relevant videos from all instances and implemented that sepiasearch. And leave the details about how to create instances and the fact there are 861 PeerTube websites on another tab instead of the main page where it’s just confusing people.
In one extreme there’s youtube that wants to make you addicted and in the other extreme is a platform with no algorithm to suggest content. I would like something around the middle. But that was just an example. I wanted to focus on why each instance focuses on a different community of people instead of trying to bring them all together.
