it is So Fucking Slow. i can’t use it for more than 10 minutes without it slowing down to the point of unusability

Ah, I see your point now. I still think it’d sell the wrong idea since it just causes centralization, which is a problem that platforms already deal with, but now I see its potential usefulness as well

But this isn’t the case with “usual” social media stuff either, why should it be the case with the fediverse?

Also just like, they are decentralized. You can’t tell dozens upon dozens of different people to “hey, make ur instance’s design follow these arbitrary rules thanks”

Same case as Fakefunk, I have my own fictional world set in the year 2500. I don’t really care about how the world is doing, but there’s this small, human-made island operated by sentient machines that is what i call a “utopia in the works”. They’re trying to make a utopia, but they’re not quite there yet. One thing I do know about this world is that “zero world countries” are now a thing, that is, countries that reach post-scarcity. The island this worldbuilding is focused on is one of those.

My friends have called them the intersection of transhumanism and buddhism, and solarpunk with a cyberpunk aesthetic

  • you can also say that a dozen is a group of 1100, does that mean that a dozen is a reference to binary? of course not, that doesn’t make any sense. just because you can use decimal digits to write a definition doesn’t make it a decimal-centric definition. duodecimal is decimal-centric not because of its definition, but because it’s literally “two(duo) ten(decimal)”

  • there are a lot of ways to count to 12 with only two hands. some with only one hand

The problem with “duodecimal” is that it’s in base ten, which makes it unfitting for a community centered around replacing base ten

Not just technology, I can’t remember anything I learnt on school besides like basic mathematical operations. Everything else they tried to explain I had to learn on internet

I clicked on this with a “this really shouldn’t use that word” mindset, and was very pleasantly surprised

Is there a way to input dozenal numbers? It can output them but i cant seem to input them

Ten is also divisible by 2

In base ten, you can tell when a number is divisible by 2, 5 and ten by looking only at the last number (if it ends on 2, 4, 6, 8, 0 its divisible by 2; if it ends on 5 or 0 its divisible by 5, if it ends on 0 its divisible by ten)

In dozenal, you can do this with 2,3,4,6 and twelve

To do numbers like 10 and up, I use the other hand for the dozens place

A community for people who enjoy using base twelve and prefer it over base ten

I’ve only used it to contact people who I have had to find when I fall into whatever rabbit hole, but not really to communicate with friends. Like, just a few days ago I fell into a Z-SAMPA rabbithole and I used email to talk to the person who was my only source of information

the best part of that excuse rn is that getting a life is extremely unadvisable due to Global Situations

what, you want them to catch the 'rona, m8?

You’re confusing communities and instances. If you want the RSS feed of an instance you need to do what you just said, but for a specific community what you said doesn’t apply

There isn’t even a subscribed, local, all selector

I think it’s absolutely clear

I’m glad you think that! Development has been very slow this year because my computer has started to fail me, but hopefully I’ll get back on giving updates and stuff about it soon!

Shameless self-promotion time!

I make languages, stories, sometimes drawings and I’m currently making a webcomic called Survivor’s 9-Step Guide To Conquering The Multiverse. I’m also working on a game called Treize, which currently has a released playable demo on itch

finally someone else talking about it, this is something that has always bothered me for a while

Not really, that’s mostly why I asked. It wouldn’t look as good without a slogan on top, but I also have no idea what to replace it with

I like them! Do you have ones that don’t have Reddit in them tho? I think it’s more valuable when people join Lemmy for its features and community and not just because it’s not Reddit.

That is very understandable, and the work you do is very appreciated

Besides being fully finished (it’s not even on version 1.0 yet)? I’d say topic variety. Currently most of lemmy’s content is very techy stuff, which is enough for people like me who are into that, but reddit has active communities for a lot of interests. Lemmy stuff is like, privacy this, linux that, tor this, development that, while reddit is more like, privacy this, conlang that, drawings this, water that, politics that other thing, etc

I think this is the kinda stuff that will come over time as people start using Lemmy, tho. Art nerds, water nerds, bird nerds, etc will come around and create communities for their interests, and people who are interested in those things will come to share their interests too

This would be really nice to have

Wait, I googled what Bluesky is. Are they working on a decentralized network or did I misunderstand?

Gladly, this seems like the kind of thing that only works with specific browsers

If they are clickbait or otherwise insufficient they can just delete the post or something, idk

The issue here is that the user is in sopuli, so Lemmur assumes “oh, they must be posting on a sopuli instance too” which is not the case. This is a bug with Lemmur

People from any instance can perfectly post on communities from another instance as long as they allow federation with each other, that part’s perfectly normal and a sign that things are working fine

because as seen by the events in Blaseball, where the Los Angeles Tacos became the Unlimited Tacos bc someone from the other team did a home run with five bases loaded, i think we’re fine to fuck the timeline here too

So that’s the excuse they’re using now? I recall seeing this exact same reason for other privacy-focused apps and stuff being removed by doogle

A lightbulb that has to be switched a random number of times before actually being switched

Thought I'd share this album, mostly as an excuse to introduce blaseball to here
