Ah, I see you already set that up. Thank you 👍

I’m happy to see that the draft for the Lemmy article that I started came in useful.

I was under impression that the process on Wikipedia is that draft gets improved until it gets accepted. But ok, going directly for an article seems to work as well.

Since draft is no longer useful, it should probably be deleted, right? Any idea how to request it’s deletion? I checked around some templates. There is a not-yet-accepted template for proposed draft deletion and a rejected template for proposed draft deletion. So I have no idea what the actual current process for proposing draft deletion is.

fuggggg, Linux 4.0 was almost 8 years ago. How time flies.
but maybe my perspective is skewed, as I got into Linux around the time of 2.4 and 2.6. those two felt like Linux version releases move very slowly. But now that I check Linux version history, I see that versions 0 and 1 went for about as long, if not even faster, than versions 3 and 4

what exactly does “locality-specific” mean here?
https://fediverse.observer/map seems to show more instances, but I guess those additional ones are not locality-specific?

wait, does HedgeDoc also allow real-time collaboration like Etherpad does?

No, Commafeed is the new Google Reader.

But article is correct about RSS being awesome. More info sources should utilise it.

Wait do people in this thread even understand federation?

regular expressions? Any decent text editor should have them. But with text editor you could either just find the hashtags, or do the “replace text” with a regular expression that matches everything that is not a hashtag, and replaces it with nothing.

If you are willing to use command line, you could copy the contents of the article into a text file and then use grep command in combination with regular expression that does match hashtags. That would get you a proper list.

Oh wow, you are correct, I provided an incorrect URL at first. Fixed it now.
Thank you for pointing this out 👍
I guess all the upvotes were from people who already knew about magic wormhole.

I came here to shill as well
it’s an amazing piece of software that allows you to transfer files between any two machines or easily share them with your friends.
it’s P2P most of the time, except where there is no direct path between two machines, then it goes through wormhole relay

Interesting article.

It is good that people are sharing good practices, ideas and suggestions for how to better configure infrastructure that is used for Fediverse.

But I get a feeling that this is somewhat similar to the classic business solution of “throwing money at the problem”. It’s providing solutions to the symptom, not the cause.

The solutions that would benefit the whole Fediverse the most would be the ones that improve things at the protocol level, so that the increased activity would not put as much pressure on hardware and software as it does now.

Isn’t Framework DIY Edition meant to be used mostly with Linux?
they say that you get to “Build it yourself and bring your OS”


lf only there was a word for it, like a “community” or something.

Now I wonder whether I should delete the posts that I made on Reddit.

actually, Matthew (the main Matrix dude) clarified this:

the >60M users (actual figure is 64M) is based on the phone-home reporting to matrix.org that synapse optionally does
the graph looks like this:
Screenshot 2022-07-14 at 10.58.51.png
of these, around 30M are natively on Matrix (the others are bridged in from other platforms)
and of those about 14M are long-term matrix users

I’m still trying to find the source of this “60 million users” claim. Any idea where that came from?

I use any chance I get to fight against this misconception

Didn’t Fedora introduce something that prevents the system from allowing programs to actually eat whole RAM and cause whole system to freeze?

Are any other distros working on stealing acquiring this functionality?

from what I see, Lemmy is still too small to be a full “network”, it’s just a flagship instance with some satellite instances around it.

We need to help it grow in order for proper decentralised network to form.

But I don’t see many people promoting it. About a year ago I made a draft for Wikipedia article about Lemmy, but I did not find much to write about. Recently I checked how it is doing, and I saw that apparently people made some questionable additions to the draft and submitted it for review. Submission got rejected, reason being that Lemmy is not “notable” enough, as in, practically no independent information sources talk about it or even mention it. Of course I went to search the internet in hopes of proving this wrong, but I was not successful. Apparently promotion of Lemmy and rest of the Fediverse is something that is not being done as much as I would have wanted.

There should probably be some Fediverse Promoting Guide that would list effective means of spreading the word about what Fediverse is and why people should use it.


Would someone please make a Fediverse Promoting Guide?

!lemmy_suggestions community
would it make sense to make such community? or would that take away too much focus from GitHub Issues? I'm lazy, so posting suggestions in such community would be "path of least resistance", as opposed to opening issues on GitHub. if such community did exist, maybe have a bot that makes a new post in it every time new issue is opened, copying content and linking to it, and vice versa, open an issue every time new thread is made in the community? Or, ideally, have bot open the GitHub issue only if OP gets enough upvotes.
