Debian derivatives and GNOME desktops. I find it versatile and plays nice with both light and heavy hardware.

I think my Windows-button with a padlock is quite fitting and a good reminder on why I moved over to FOSS.

What you think is your business, what I think is that whatever arguments you have isn’t something that will hold up to questioning.

I also think that while you suspect bad faith, critisizing someone and then refusing to help them better themselves is a DIRECT act of bad intentions. That doesn’t help at all, it literally only brings more negative feelings to the world.

How do I even know that your criticism is real and you’re not just an Internet stranger, lying to try to bring me down and make me feel bad about myself for your own amusement?

I don’t think this is worth my time either, glad we can come to a common understanding.

If I did, what do you think would be most productive - Telling me that I’m wrong or explaining to me how I’m wrong?

I cannot concent to being a lemmy instance user due to my lack of understanding the intricacies of lemmy federation. Should we shut it all down or should I just stop using it?

Have you proven that you are ABLE to consent to things you don’t have a full overview over? Should YOU be able to use Lemmy, maybe you’re being exploited right now?

Terrible times we live in.

I have very good experience with YunoHost. Installing Lemmy through the Ansible automated installation on a fresh VPN was quite easy as well.

Hmm, have you considered notifying Freenom as they think .ML is the top level domain for Mali?

My first MP3 player was a cheap Sandisk Sansa E130 in the age of the iPod. One of the best MP3 players I’ve ever had, used AAA batteries, came with a whopping 8GB storage AND SD card support! Great sound and battery life, 5/5 stars.

Edit: I remembered wrong, it came with 512MB storage, the SD card I had was 8GB lmao

Decrease ZRAM, add swap on external drive and set priority, nohing extreme. 🤷‍♂️

To be fair it’s not dense commands all the way down.

Well I did download ZRAM so now every GB of RAM is 3 GBs of RAM. 🫠

Old stuff is pretty neat. My favorite part of the article was the clip from The Mummy, it dates back to the turn of the millenium.

By the way, I shared a video about the looting of the Great Pyramid yesterday if people want some more egyptology.

I’ve had the same thing happen on both .com and .no TLD’s despite setting the DKIM keys, all mail goes to the spam box. And I’ve had the same setup cause no issues.

In my experience it’s spam filters and the large companies behind them, I’ve even had my home IP blocked as untrustworthy - Until I power-cycled my modem and got a new IP from the local pool. To me it’s the reciever that unjustly blocks the mail, not our TLD’s that are “untrustworthy”.

I know it’s not an answer to the situation, but I don’t think there are any. To me, e-mail is another good idea ruined by big tech.


It’s a different platform, you won’t participate in the monopolization of Chromium as the only browser worth building webpages for.

Google Chromium and install uBlock Origin

AFAIK you’d have to do some tweaking under the hood to achieve the same effect, particularly when it comes to de-coupling Google from Chrome. My impression is that you’d be closer to Brave if you started with Chromium or even Ungoogled-Chromium.

I would try to contact the head devs, or on Matrix, Lemmy have several offical rooms where they hang out.

Not beyond confirmin that it exists and the link to the main site.

This reminded me about a joke where the punchline is that mens soap is multipurpose - One can use it to wash body, hair, floors, do the dishes, grease ballbearings, use as hair pomade and salad dressing.

Dr. Bronner’s soap, I’m surprised to say after investigating, is not a joke.

If there is an issue with gaming the system, that’s where the solution will be.

I don’t think participating in something percieved as unfair should be the solution to something I percieve as unfair. In such a situation, actively distancing myself would be more aligned with my ethics. On a personal level it’s easy to block other individual users from cetain instances (although a never-ending process), but as an admin action it would impact a lot of users on both instances.

But as I’m unsure about how it works, it might be a non-issue. I respect other instances choice to disable downvotes, and if instance X’s downvotes on posts from such servers are propegated to my instance - Both sides preferences would be achievable.

Time to change online threat model, with limited quantum computers available for the consumer market it’s no more trusting encryption to keep us safe from bad actors.

Why do they happen at some websites, but not others? It’s how they’re administered. Twitter is bad too.

unilaterally banning art on the basis of being AI generated. (…)

I completely understand them. It’s the same thing within the speedrunning community, where it’s sometimes quite hard to distinguish AI records. They’re cheating, simple as.

Art is de facto “human”, since art as a concept is established while computer generated pieces like we’re talking about is the new field. (Speedrunning is “human” because it’s the common consensus, same with mechanical performance enhancers in sport)

I’m not sure if it can even be called art as there is no artistic intent behind it. I think a lot of them are quite beautiful, in the same way I find a lot of nature beautiful. The art is in the eye of the beholder, not in the design or more correctly in both nature and AI - in the evolution.

All of this would have been avoided if AI generated images would be posted in i.e. /r/AIart

If AI art is good enough to be confused with human art and there’s no foolproof method of detecting it, then banning it isn’t reasonably enforceable.

I agree. But same goes for school. If teachers can’t detect AI generated homework and it’s not reasonably enforceable - Should there even be rules against this type of cheating?

Of course there should.

To me, the main issue here is the copyright. All AI works as far as I know are based on existing pieces of art. Machine learning is somewhat copying others work to “educate” themselves, much like I read a book to absorb it’s knowledge.

The main difference is that my creators (thanks, mom and dad. I guess.) didn’t create me with the specific intent of creating the best book ever by making me read a ton of books. If something like that happens, it would be of my own agenda.

An agenda (publicly known) AI’s don’t have for now. They’re programmed to have certain goals, they’re a product.

I don’t think anyone can turn off downvotes or block instances, as far as I know both of those are server-wide admin settings.

I would also hope that instance blocks is the last option, not the first - Particularly on other small instances.

Reddit is bad. People who accept the status quo over there must also accept the status quo over there - Banned for bogus reasons.

Do all the reddit-complainers think it couldn’t happen to them? There’s always such indignation and surprise.

The debate about AI art is interesting. People getting permanently banned from Reddit for bullshit reasons is routine.

Clarification regarding downvotes on posts from remote instances - Where downvotes are turned OFF?
I saw from a recent post that [downvotes does not propagate]( That seems counter-intuative to me, how does it actually work? - Does my downvote affect the visibility on such a posts in my feed when I vote on it on my local instance? - Does my downvotes on such an post impact the visibility of the post among my fellow lemmy-browsers on a third party instance? - Will turning off downvotes on an instance give its posts and posters an *artificial boost* when federating compared to instances where posts can get downvotes? I'm suspecting this can be used to create false consensus and artificially high visibility around posts.

I went full ramming speed straight into the main module. I was told I went to fast. No, I went at the intended speed.

They’re saying they want to have a unique fingerprint (…)

You sure bout that? I interpret I don't want my browser add-ons to make my fingerprint unique. as if they don’t want a unique fingerprint.

You might not care about that, but many people do.

Many people want Lord Journo, the teller of Truf to create an artificial wedge between users? Well then I certainly don’t support them either!

I want to know if someone has fact checkers looking over their shoulder or whether they’re free to pull claims out their ass till the cows come home.

You have no idea how much I’d love that. Unfortunately the last 10 years of media have shown me that this isn’t the case.

but rather one mechanism for establishing a basis for trust.

Yes, it’s disruptive at least - If not destructive to modern society that the trust in media have dropped to what I perceive to be critical levels, particularly in the last decade or two.

It’s because Lemmy allows setting a display name that shows up almost identically to a local name. If it continues to be a problem, my guess is that will be changed.

I think the first step will be to show the username next to the display name, just like on Mastodon. I will continue to assume this lemmy-specific is a non-issue on mastodon.

It’s that journalists are, by their nature, very tied to their reputation

They certainly are.

Having a system for verification is helpful for the general public to know that the person is at least who they say they are is useful.

Depends on what metric you evaluate people’s content by, if you want to be seen as Lord Journo the teller of Truf I don’t care if you work at Washington Post or not. I don’t want it.

Contrast that with a situation that Lemmy has had where a person keeps creating accounts with the display name of one of the admins and posting disgusting porn. I think they finally got bored and went away, but what if that was a larger campaign waged over years? Identity verification provides at least some baseline for trust.

That is literally why Mastodon has a built in verification system based on control of the verifying website. If you can tie your account to i.e. CNN and have a green link, it means you’ve got administrative access to the CNN homepage. Which means you are likely working at CNN or CNN have bigger problems than people pretending to be journalists at CNN.

Is the situation you describe because of the state of Lemmy, or that the Lemmy admins are uniquely targeted for impersonation?

On what device?

Edit: I froze all my kernels at 4.20 for the lulz

I don’t think about them at all.

I have nothing negative to say about Micah Lee beyond that I’m very critical of the system he’s chosen to partake in. I don’t care how long anybody’s been on Mastodon, what they’re trying to do is create a divide between pleb and power users.

Besides that, I guess sometimes it can be useful to send a Direct Message to a journalist rather than trying to phone or write them.

Yeah, and almost all serious people dissuades people from using Mastodon DM’s. Maybe that’s why Micah Lee have listed both his keybase handle and his Signal phone number as contact info, while we’re free to follow him on Mastodon.

The external forces are hard at work on centralizing and monopolizing the fediverse. Same thing with fedifinder, these things are trying to ruing what the fediverse could be. People who use services like this want to port over the kudos they’ve garnered on Twitter, they’re literally the people complaining that there’s no blue checkmarks on Mastodon. They’re trying to create the infrastructure to lord over regular users.

No thanks.

It’s still Google so that’s a bad sign.

Raspberry Pi hires ex-police surveillance expert with 15 years of experience
cross-posted from: > With the history of ex-law enforcers working at tech companies, I don't think my next SBC will be a Raspberry. In one way this reminds me of an attempt to circumvent a canary ban.

I think a lot of Vivaldi users already enjoys it, at least that what’s it looks like from interacting with them. The setup isn’t for me either, but I understand why certain user segments would like it.

There’s always this:

I’m fine with them having somewhat preferential treatment for their own instance in their own browser.

"AI, pretend that you are the command prompt inside a linux machine..." My mind is thoroughly boggled, it's just simulations all the way down.

“Share to Lemmy” bookmarklet: Easy sharing without browser extensions
I made a "Share to Lemmy" bookmarklet to easily share content to Lemmy, maybe you want one too? If you don't know what it is, it's a bookmark that runs a small piece of code - In this case, it shares the page you're currently on to Lemmy. If your browser have a bookmark bar, you're always just a click away from a pre-filled share screen on your home instance. It should work in all desktop browsers. - Copy and tweak the code, replace `` with your home instance - Create a new bookmark, the tweaked code goes in the URL field - Click the bookmark while on a page you want to share `javascript:void%20function(){var%20t=document.URL,o=document.title;window.location.href=%22}();`

Please clarify what rules were broken for /c/askawoman to be removed.
I saw that the newly created community "askawoman" was deleted due to being a "troll community", with reason being I never had the chance to visit, but see nothing in the provided link that indicates that it's a troll community. Could the administration please clarify what made you decide it had to be removed so I can make sure I don't do the same and get my own communities blocked from federation?

Update’s Code of Conduct
Due to the recent ban of a for "Bigotry and racism on his main account on Wolfball." it is requested that updates the Code of Conduct to reflect actual moderation. Please consider adding that will ban users for comments made with other accounts on other instances.

Bug: Can’t subscribe to remote/federated PeerTube channels on a PeerTube server
Examples, same PeerTube instance but different parent accounts ( **Search for, find and able to subscribe:** **Search for, sometimes spinning forever, sometimes "No Results":** **Edit/update:** As I get more familiar with Lemmy and PeerTube, this turns out to be an artifact of federation. The "@" obviously designates an account on a different server and when "" won't resolve, "" will. Original title "Bug: Can't subscribe to PeerTube channels with "@" in the name" changed.
