Brave Software’s CEO is Brendan Eich https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_Eich

Eich resigned from Mozilla in 2014 after it turned out that he’d made political donations against California’s same-sex marriage equality bill. Since then, he’s got press for being some kind of COVID denialist https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/22/business/brave-brendan-eich-covid-19.html

So, as well as the crypto bullshit and advertising cooperation that others mentioned, company’s run by a shitlord.

anyone who believes it’ll be truly “end to end encrypted” I got a bridge to sell ya…

weird that they picked a name so similar to the longstanding (not gmail based) seemingly unrelated service mailinator.com

and they started serving CAPTCHAs to Tor users…

Wow, That’s A Lot Of Bad Takes

culminating in “A Market Based Approach” 😆

another vote for Gitea - much easier to host than gitlab in my experience, lots of great features (e.g. it can work as a single sign on system for other apps, host docker images and PHP packages, and integrates well with Drone for CI/CD), and if you don’t wanna run it yourself I’ll also big up Codeberg as another person suggested

if the admin has turned on the option, folks can log in with github or gitlab or discord or a community OAuth/LDAP/etc server.

full federation will be great, but there’s technically more options than just “tons of accounts” right now already.

can’t find docs, but the web admin interface makes it pretty easy to set up.

Hey thanks for the reply, didn’t notice you were the author, I wasn’t intentionally speaking to you in the 3rd person.

I figured you probably didn’t intend anything racist by the word “ricing”.

And I know that it’s about “overly-customized shitty cars”, going back to the “Gentoo is for ricers” blog. Did you know it’s about Japanese overly-customized shitty cars?

This forum thread seems helpful: https://www.resetera.com/threads/is-the-term-ricer-racist.103962/

Yes, it started to mock Asians that decked out their cars. There was no term for white people, it was meant to put Asians down in the automotive scene due to their early success.

I think it is. I have only heard it used to describe Asians. I couldn’t imagine going up to an Asian and calling him a “ricer”

Oh my god. I haven’t heard that term in over 15 years. People still say Ricer?! And yeah, I always heard it in reference to Asian street racers. So I assumed it was at least a little racist, whether that was playful ribbing or full on go fuck yourself racism, I dunno. I wasn’t really in that scene.

(It also mentions the “Racing Inspired Car Enhancements” theory of the word origin, which I’d never heard, but I agree with folks there that “RICE” is a backronym, i.e. it was invented after the fact, like “RAP” = “rhythm associated poetry”)

More sources:

anyone have a minute to ask the author to take out the probably-racist term “ricing”?

And if you’re interested in doing some ricing…

cool now do instagram

(edit: and Whatsapp)

try making friends with some migrants and some queer people (there are lots of both on Lemmy) - I’d bet everything that your dehumanising views will change, and you won’t have to worry about “self censorship” to participate here

“To be able to set up a branded surveillance paywall around something that should be a free public service”

I’m a bit surprised you’re surprised, it’s got “master race” in the name. At best it’s too soon to be cracking uncritical jokes about the Nazis, at worst it’s a deliberate dogwhistle. Another depressing search to do on that sub is find the times people begged for it to be changed.

Be kind to yourself for what you do manage, look for any ways you can make things easier for yourself. Can you keep your toothbrush, and a bottle of water and something to spit into, near where you sleep, if you don’t usually get to the bathroom before sleeping? Or if you do make it there, could you get out your toothbrush and toothpaste in advance, when you’ve got more energy, so there’s not so many steps when you’re in there when you’re tired? Do you have mouthwash, as a quick fix if you’re too shattered for brushing and flossing?

On flossing, I couldn’t motivate to floss my whole life, same as you, waste of time - I wasn’t getting cavities, and when I flossed my gums would bleed and when I didn’t they didn’t, so it felt totally counterintuitive.

Since I got a filling a couple of years ago I’ve been trying to find something that works, before I need more.

I’d seen the disposable single use picks with a piece of floss, but I couldn’t feel goodabout that much plastic waste, and it was still too hard to reach back teeth when I tried a couple.

Then I got a kit like this, it was the equivalent of about $4:

Between the two different sizes, the whole process is closer to 2 minutes vs closer to 10 with floss (I’m sure both would be quicker with practice), I’ve seen blood a lot less, there’s a satisfying amount of gunk that comes out even after brushing well, and I tell myself (hopefully accurately) that any time I manage to use them, even if it’s only once a week, is a favour to myself vs before, when literally the only times those places got regularly cleaned was at the dentist.

Search for the community from your own instance, you should get a button to subscribe.

That showed up for me too, it might still work for new tweets if you follow the account?

Reddit/Lemmy bridge would be AWESOME, though in b4 an arms race with Reddit devs to stop it working 😶

If you block a community from your profile, it won’t show up on “All” either

If they’re both on the same network, Snapdrop is pretty good https://snapdrop.net/

There’s an android app but it works fine in a browser.
