What do you mean? Do you believe China is not a Dictatorship? That they do not heavily regulate the news both out and in. Are you even aware China has a “Great Firewall” to filter dissent speech? I like to read Light Novels from Japaneses, Korean and Chinese authors. From the many I’ve read, I encountered 3 really good novels that are sadly on “Hiatus”. Guess from where and why? If they can be this petty with fictional LNs they are capable of everything. I really don’t understand how will anyone defend China’s government unless you are a Chinese government shill, or are oblivious to world news.
My favorite is hands down Vsauce. His Mind Field series is the greatest YouTube Originals on YouTube. There are many other great science content creator on YouTube but Michael Stevens approach is the best in my opinion. It elicit curiosity like no other while entertaining and educating. Too bad he is not as active as before.
Because snaps are slower than flatpak per my experience. Also there is already many other ways to install software and why bother making things complicated, specially if the community already have a favorite. To install apps I chose distro_repo>flatpak> AUR≈Snaps≈appimage. This because it depends how the app behaves, its limitations and ease of update with everything else.
Oh! the irony. Points out facebook is not the best place, that is killing itself, that would like for a replacement to thrive but, makes no effort to promote a reasonable alternative. Its like when people say they are hungry but could not decide what to eat so they end up eating the same shit they are complaining about.
There is different phenomenons happening regarding your question.
More people playing on Linux may bring the interest of developers to create a Linux version for their games. More developers familiarizing or liking Linux may mean more native Linux versions. This way there is no need to use wine/proton middle-man software. Proton may work wonderful but there’s still the fact that there is a middle-man software, and will never be as optimize it can be. Games often have bugs and are release unfinished, imagine bringing more things in between, more points of breaking.
To me is understanding. Understanding that before current times depression was less common because of community. Now society have change to be more selfish and isolated. That’s why group treatments are such a success in almost any mental health and substance use treatments. So…
Understanding mental health for the most part is a combination of mental and physical issue. That’s why exercising “cure” depression for more than 30% of people. Food also plays a big role in mental health since we are what we eat.
Understanding perspective is everything. What we belief, think and perceived is basically you fate. So access your beliefs/perspective, if you are not getting better, they are sabotaging you by maintaining the depression. That’s why most self help books focus on this.
Another drawback is that it’s centralized, kill the company and so go your passwords I suppose.
You supposed wrong. If for some reason their servers are unavailable you still have local access but lose sync. Enough for exporting and using another service if necessary. Still you should create a backup once in a while.
But the major drawback is that I can’t trust it. It’s got a “premium” version, and that has always meant a slow steady spiral into “you must pay now that we have you by the balls” situation.
So you have a beef with paying for services? or believe you deserve a premium quality software/service for free? If you don’t want to pay then chose a choice that…
suck major ball sack…
Also some people already recommended Keepass but it weird you didn’t mention it since is usually the first result for FLOSS. That one seems to fit your requirements.
That’s like asking why touchscreen TVs are not mainstream. There is different devices for different purposes. Most people that buy a laptop need the keyboard and use it as a desktop. If a person wants or needs a laptop with touchscreen they either buy the niche models that exist (2-1 laptops) or they use a tablet since that’s the main intended use. Otherwise it will be a waste of resources for a feature most laptop users wont be using enough.
My hypothesis is the adage “out of sight, out of mind”. Is not the same having someone physically following you everywhere in a surveillance van, looking inside your home, when you buy groceries the cashier hands a copy of your receipt to the surveillance guy, etc. Since all that happens “hidden” away through the many services, apps, store cards, credit cards, etc. Although not all are too ‘hidden away’ as you can read it on their TOS and privacy terms or overwhelmingly obvious like in places like casinos with all the cameras but people cant be bothered reading TOS or got normalized to see all the cameras. We also often overestimate ourselves (human beings) thinking we have a level of intelligence and rational capacity but in reality we are more emotional and prioritize bias over rationality.
What do you mean by
lethargic or hyperactive? If is about lethargic you should address your mental health hard to improve your mood. If its hypeactive, the same advise but focus more on organization and priorities. Like others have suggested floss while doing other things like on the computer or watching TV. Use any tools that help you keep you productive like Calendar, Task apps and its reminders, alarms, Notes app and, use the widgets on the Phone HomeScreen.
On the oral hygiene topic I’ll say if you can, buy an electric tooth brush. You can buy a good one for less than $50 on ebay. I also notice that using a regular floss was tedious until I tried a better one like ‘Listerine Ultraclean Mint Floss’. Regarding Mouthwashs there a various types of it. Try which one you really like the most and that will help you use it more often.
IMO Friendica feels like beta software or outdated with no signs of improvement. Similar to how LibreOffice used to be for years. The layout is just not streamlined enough. It’s unnecessary complicated and the UI looks outdated on all themes.
