For people who live in colder climates, I’d assume harder to heat


Oh wow thank you! Added to my book list, much appreciated!


No worries about the length of time. Would you happen to know the book you read? I’d be real interested in reading it! I’m very aware of skin barrier damage (had acne when a teenager and killed the barrier so I kept getting acne until I healed that up!) but never thought about those stinky bits having their own…something to ponder on


https://bigboy.us/other/aws/

That’s a how to guide for blocking Amazon and their web services! Will friend be sharing the project? Sounds cool!


I’ve actually read that using soap everywhere actually might be harming our skin barrier if showering every day. It seems soap on the armpits, genitals, and any stinky parts are the only place you should wash daily.

The article in question: https://web.archive.org/web/20220121065824/https://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/magazine/my-no-soap-no-shampoo-bacteria-rich-hygiene-experiment.html

Also, haven’t read it yet, but “The Joy of Sweat” by Sarah Everts seems like a good look at sweat.

But also, yeah use deodorant around other people. I’d suggest something unscented because really fragrant smells can be just as aggressively stinky (in the opposite way) as natural sweat.


The first mistake was picking up a random phone call. Can’t get scammed if you never pick up haha!

But yeah, if money is involved, I initiate the call to the person. If you didnt call, don’t give out information!


As someone who lives with their parents in adulthood and is planning on moving soon but racked with guilt about leaving, most of the people I talked to about this seem to say that you need to live your own life. So basically, think only of your own wants and needs and not others. Even tho I’ll be farther than my other sibling, I’ll probably still be the one my parents lean on for support. For me, I always saw myself as taking care of my parents out of my love for them. So I’m not bothered by my siblings lack of care because I’m motivated through my own desire to help and care. Idk if that helps?


1000km is around 621 miles, which is what I get for my car. This is seriously huge but unfortunate it’s a pricey brand rather than something more affordable for consumers like rural and small town residence.


Good investment? Nah, that thing loses value like it’s a job. Car investments are worthless from what I’ve seen. On the brightside, the market for used cars is actually in high demand so you’ll get more for a car than in other times. Car buying, if you dont have a downpayment or good credit, is very difficult so sticking with owner sales would be your best bet, or short term rental like mentioned. Alternative, any coworkers who live around you? As someone who carpools with a coworker, it’s not a bad thing to do.


I think this would be a really cool idea and not one I can think of already so would be interested


Music I use Metro, mostly for its UI. Most of the other music players in fdroid look kinda ugly or crowded, so Metro was one that works and looks much better (or different). It works and looks like Samsung Music player hence why I picked it.

For note taking app, I enjoy using Notally, it’s the closest to how the Samsung Notes app worked, so I can easily make a todo list or jot down a note (and putting things on seperate lines! Surprising to find some apps didn’t let me?) I also have Joplin to sync some references and such.

I haven’t found a good Diary app yet, but looking for one to use for gardening purposes.

Vpn don’t know, I have NordVPN and they dont have their app on fdroid

Maps, what everyone else suggests

Messenger apps again, what everyone else suggested

Social media again, what others suggested

Peertube I don’t use for uploading videos, I watch using NewPipe

Todo app I use Notally mentioned above! I also have SimpleTask for grocery management but it’s meant to be a todo app. That one has lots of functionality tho so I’m sure it can work well for you!


Money, mainly. In my area, there are jobs offering far more per hour than what I get at my current job. I’m talking double what I make for a job that doesn’t even require a college degree. And it isn’t even like it’s the only news station in the area, there are three total in the area, so they should be offering more.

Outside of that, I do like my job, and probably have far more freedom than most jobs. I question management decisions often, but if you are just chilling then it isn’t a bother


Local news but considering leaving it all behind and starting a farm


I’m also looking to get into HAM, since a coworker of mine is super into it…but I still am having problems with maintaining a server so idk if I should get into it


The city if Philadelphia banned cashless stores, so going to other major cities, it’s wild seeing the prevalence of cashless stores. Where I live cash is still king but I do see the slow switch over happening


Work at a news station, so I see the national and local news every day. Also some email subs and social media like lemmy and mastodon, sometimes Tumblr


Not that’s fair, I also don’t care that much for my coworkers to invest the time. Unless I already know something well, I just ignore really


Only spend time trying to unravel someone like that if they are important to you. My dad tends to end up watching a lot of those videos, and he started talking about how covid was a hoaxs by the US gov, and so I said first, some of these “facts” are just plain false, second who benefits from you thinking that, and if that was true, what’s the gameplan for them?

My dad is an extremely logical person, in that he values logic above all else. So I tend to use logic to help guide him out. My mom on the otherhand is far more trusting, so I use her trust in me to affirm what I say is true and try to use experiences to show her, should she believe in anything like that.

That’s why you should only help those you know well. It’s not a one and done conversation, it’s a continous situation.


I’d really love to see someone who is visually impaired to review it


Haha I’d love to be at that point when I could brag about my uptime! Seems like I’m overthinking the move in that it’s just a computer 🤦🏽


[Question] Home Server Relocating
I started self hosting with a home server last year, and had put it in a room in the house where there was an ethernet port. Last week, me and my dad wired up the house with ethernet ports and a switch and now I want to move my home server from it's current location to a different room in the house. Is there any sort of guidance or guide about how to properly move a server? I don't want to mess up my server since it is a repurposed old desktop. I also run Yunohost on it if that's important to know.

Hosting Recommendations
There seems to be a lot of options when it comes to companies to host with. Anyone have a favorite they'd rec to someone or companies to avoid? Or, alternatively, anyone have recommendations for things to host? Things you're glad your self-hosting or glad you aren't self-hosting?

Privacy Guide for Servers for the Average Person?
I recently started self-hosting an XMPP server for my friends and family, but when looking for privacy specific guides I can't really find any. It seems like self-hosting is the baseline way to gain privacy, and with things like Docker and Yunohost it feels within reach for average users to learn enough to do it. I loved the phone guide that was published here and was able to follow the steps and learn more about phone privacy. So are there any good guides like that but for servers? I know security is different from privacy, hence why I'm asking specifically for privacy-oriented guides. Thanks in advance, lemmy has always been a fantastic community for helping out newbies! Edit: More specific questions; is there a way for me to make my host IP address not readily available (I'm hosting in my house, not a VPS), is there a better option for security than using Cloudflare (this one I'm having a hard time with mostly because I still don't quite understand what Cloudflare does?), I know some other servers say they delete messages from the server and identifying data...how? (I have metronome as the server for XMPP, using Yunohost)
