Do you know if gifs work?

I have a Vega 64 myself and its pretty good. Most games run perfectly on high graphics settings and my experience with the drivers are seamless since they are fully integrated within the Linux kernel. One thing to note is that Freesync sadly doesnt work on a multi monitor setup with X11 (it only really works with Wayland and the Sway window manager).

I have never had any firsthand experience with a 1080 TI, but from what I hear the drivers aren’t very fun to deal with. Aside from that, performance should be somewhat similiar with some experiences being better and worse on both sides.

Yup, and in this case the Soviets (/Russians) weren’t really portrayed as villians IMO.

The Boys isn’t much anti-Russian because (beware of Spoilers):


The captured super hero (Soldier Boy) was actually betrayed by his own comrades and then handed over to the Soviets. IIRC, this betrayal was even coordinated by the super hero company in order to profit off of their new, lab-grown super hero.

If anything, The Boys is more anti-US than anti-Russian due to its underlying anti-Capitalist/anti-Neoliberal messages (The US being more Capitalist than Russia in this case). The show also portrays corruption, illegal business and unethical practices conducted by companies in order to maximize profits. The show is mainly a criticism of Capitalism and Neoliberalism in the US and doesn’t really show anything having much to do with Russia.

Besides that, the most vile characters in the show are actually the american super heros themselves together with the company. From committing murders to doing drugs and even human trafficking. So, I think it’s fair to say that the show isn’t specifically anti-Russian.

I was using Lemmur with the AMOLED theme which is pure black. But yeah, with the web UI gray dark theme its definitely usable.

Sadly doesn’t mix very well with dark mode. It practically becomes invisible.

Inserting the community with the instance into the url when using the web UI also works. For example, if you would want to subscribe to the Technology community but you can’t find it with the search function, you could enter https://midwest.social/c/technology@lemmy.ml to subscribe to the community. From what I’ve heard, communities not being searchable is because no one else from your instance subscribed to that community yet.

Is The New Oil the website you were referring to?

This would mean sharing content under the users name without their consent. I don’t think I have to elaborate on why this is a problem…

If a mod or admin wants a title changed then they can ask the user or just remove the post if it breaks a rule. Lemmy DMs and comments do exist for a reason.

You’re right. There’s even a section in the Docs dedicated to this topic.

What exactly are you asking? Are you asking about gender roles, gender or biological sex? Because I would say that it depends heavily on what you’re asking.

The video you sent is way out of date…

Joe Biden and Olaf Scholz were both committed to take Nord Stream 2 offline. So what happened? Germany simply took it offline as a form of sanction against Russia. This has already happened over half a year ago and has absolutely nothing to do with Nord Stream 1. Besides, why destroy a pipeline that isn’t in use anymore?

You talk as if motives don’t matter when looking at who the perpetrator is. But motives are very important when looking at suspects. Neither the US nor NATO benefit in any way by destroying Nord Stream 1. So why would they do it?

Do what? Keep Nord Stream 2 from running? Destroying Nord Stream 1?

Neither really makes any sense. Germany threatened Russia on their own volition to stop Nord Stream 2 from running.

With destroying Nord Stream 1 the US gains nothing and besides, if the US actually did say that they would destroy it then why keep the operation so secretive and make it look like sabotage?

And how does the US fit in?

Because Nord Stream 2 has never been in operation, it wouldn’t make any sense within the meme to have the US “unplug” it.

And honestly, I don’t think the meme even makes any sense in the first place.

Not like Nord Stream 2 was ever in operation anyway…

As OP already stated, the problem isn’t the politics but rather that they just simply aren’t memes.

if it is possible to restrict a group so only one person could post new articles

IIRC there’s a setting when creating a community for only mods to be able to post.

There is no overarching theme or politics for the Lemmyverse – Every instance represents only itself and it’s users. Lemmy is not left-wing. Lemmy is not right-wing. Lemmy is what ever you make of it.

Very well written! I think this is very important to point out, especially for people who assume lemmy.ml and Lemmy are the same or assume it’s the “default” instance.

Here’s a good example for this sort of confusion.

Just go to the doctor…

About a week ago Bitwarden created an official community on the instance sopuli. But now it seems the community has been removed by Bitwarden due to public backlash.

Such a shame…

I was even excited to see them join a community as small as ours.

The other day a public representative for a company withdrew their community the same day they created it due to the public backlash.

This was probably Bitwarden on the Sopuli instance right? Could you perhaps share a link discussing this in detail?

Huge respect for making the decision! Most wouldn’t even consider the idea of creating an official community on smaller social platforms.

From nutomic in #2301:

After some thinking, I came to the conclusion that it doesnt really make sense for Lemmy to accept only likes which are marked as public. I mainly implemented it that way because most other content in Lemmy is public, but in fact likes are expected to be private. This is a problem in federation with Friendica, which publicly lists all Lemmy users who liked a post. For that reason, i think it also makes sense to not mark Lemmy likes as public, meaning they will be private.

I also buy about 80-90% of my music from Bandcamp. If some music I really like isn’t on Bandcamp, then I download it from Youtube which would make up the other 10-20%.

I’ve thought about maybe buying the music that’s not on Bandcamp from Itunes instead, but I really don’t like the idea of giving Apple my money or even using their services.

Definitely, especially when the app starts spamming you with notifications.

AFAIK it’s mostly because using cashless payment methods in germany is taxed which is why most smaller businesses don’t accept cards in the first place.

Amazing quality post with lot’s of useful info, thanks! I was already aware of the bakchodi instance but hexbear is something completely new to me…

Relative to other fines? Not really.

A lot of fines I’ve seen against such companies for violating privacy regulations were usually about 50 - 250 Million EUR/USD (Most of them being from the EU). The only exception being Facebook getting fined for 5 billion USD by the FTC in 2019 for the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Relative to their annual revenue? No.

From what I can tell, Twitter apparently had a revenue of about 5 billion USD in 2021. So if my math is correct then this fine is only about 3% of their annual revenue from last year.

FTC Orders Twitter to Pay $150 Million Penalty for Profiting from Deceptively Collected Data
> The Federal Trade Commission is taking action against Twitter, Inc. for deceptively using account security data for targeted advertising. Twitter asked users to give their phone numbers and email addresses to protect their accounts. The firm then profited by allowing advertisers to use this data to target specific users. Twitter’s deception violates a 2011 FTC order that explicitly prohibited the company from misrepresenting its privacy and security practices. Under the proposed order, Twitter must pay a $150 million penalty and is banned from profiting from its deceptively collected data. > “As the complaint notes, Twitter obtained data from users on the pretext of harnessing it for security purposes but then ended up also using the data to target users with ads," said FTC Chair Lina M. Khan. "This practice affected more than 140 million Twitter users, while boosting Twitter’s primary source of revenue.” > In addition to the $150 million penalty, other provisions of the proposed order would: > > - prohibit Twitter from profiting from deceptively collected data; >- allow users to use other multi-factor authentication methods such as mobile authentication apps or security keys that do not require users to provide their telephone numbers; >- notify users that it misused phone numbers and email addresses collected for account security to also target ads to them and provide information about Twitter’s privacy and security controls; >- implement and maintain a comprehensive privacy and information security program that requires the company, among other things, to examine and address the potential privacy and security risks of new products; >- limit employee access to users’ personal data; and >- notify the FTC if the company experiences a data breach.

Funnily enough, I got the exact same score…

It’s likely he will stay for another 4 years since the state had their parliament election just 3 days ago and the current Minister president (Daniel Günther) is confirmed to stay. The Minister president chooses the individual ministers for his cabinet which means that he will probably want to keep Jan Albrecht because he already chose him as a minister 4 years ago.

But I guess we’ll see how this plays out in a few weeks or so.

The statement about Germany is misleading. It isn’t the Federal Republic of Germany which is making the switch but rather only the german state of Schleswig-Holstein.

This was made possible by Jan Albrecht, who is the current Minister for Energy, Agriculture, the Environment, Nature and Digitalization for S-H.

The most creative use I’ve personally come up with, is to create a QR code for Croc codes when i want to transfer some files to my phone. I know that I could just use a USB cable, but I’m on Artix have procrastinated looking into how to do that.
