I’m sorry, I don’t have much in the way of advice. But you should look into “stealth camping”. From what I’ve seen on youtube and reddit, with the right resources you can set up just about anywhere. Like someone else said, in most public areas you can find a nook, or you can use a car if necessary.

Also, make sure you know what temperatures your meds should be stored at.

Best of luck to you friend, and may the gods’ blessings be overhead.

(: I’m really excited. They’re good kids and they need a device so we can finally play minecraft with them properly!

Thank you!

Highest performance, easiest set up, most versatile with proprietary hardware I suppose are my personal criteria for this question.

I am clinging on dearly for survival. I can only say it is like I have been on a log raft in an endless, stormy ocean for years. My methods of coping are not ideal. But somehow I have survived this long. I really don’t know how

What are the best Linux distros available currently for gaming?
Perhaps including what kinds of hardware work best with them. I'm interested in people's opinions on this.

Awesome. I’ve been playing minecraft since almost the beginning and that computer handled it well. I used to use Ubuntu a long time ago. I wasn’t sure what was the best nowadays but I knew there were some new ones. I’ve heard of pop a lot these days so I think I’ll try it! Thanks!

Advice on distro
Hello, I am preparing a gift for my partner's two brothers. They are in their single digits, still don't know how to read, and are mainly going to be using this computer for minecraft. I have an old computer I got back in 2014 that has a pretty decent graphics card. Nvidia GeForce 650 or 750 or something like that. I want to put a Linux distro on it that will be easy to set up, and easy for them to use to play minecraft and possibly some steam games. I use Manjaro and have been using Linux for a while but I'm not super adept, beyond general comfort with the command line. So, what's my best bet to get it set up easy and quick for these two that they can play minecraft with some mods possibly and other older, less graphically intensive games I have available? Thanks. Hope you are all well!


I just love them so much. They are little guardians and always around whether you see them or not. Tend to try and stay away from you because they’re afraid of you, and we of them, of course… I just love how they look, behave, and the important work they do for preventing pestilence from overwhelming us.

It’s hard to pick a favorite species. Huntsman are very incredible, and tarantulas. The bigger the better. Although jumping spiders of all kinds are simply adorable and I love wolf spiders because they’ve always been around in my life.

Yeah. I want to go to Mars but not if it means torching Earth. I don’t know why people think we’ll somehow make Mars liveable when we can’t even keep our already habitable planet going.

I’m definitely down for interplanetary travel after we figure out how to keep things going down here.

I wanna play it so bad! I think my computer can do VR but I haven’t been able to find out because I don’t have a headset… I can’t believe I’m missing out on new half life content…

I hope your finals are going well! You got this!

And soon, soon…

Pokémon cards. I have a massive collection somewhere in storage, probably have some serious money in there. It’s cool seeing Pokémon booster packs at the store still.

Purple all the way! It’s a liminal color. I just think it’s neat.

Although turquoise has been a long favorite of mine. Anything with a green-blue mix is special to me. That’s the color of life to me.

In my local area we have a lot of “co-op” retail stores that aren’t employee owned at all. I haven’t seen a single employee owned store, just “consumer coops” where the consumer can vote on… Something, but the people who actually work there are treated the same as at any other retail outlet.

The desert I’m in doesn’t get that much rain… I like standing in the rain. But when it does come it’s usually big storms with lots of thunder and wild rains. I enjoy that.

I got on an antidepressant and am doing better than ever. It’s still hella hard, don’t get me wrong. But I’m here and I’m enjoying myself.

Eh, better than this whole platform being a centrist cesspool.

But even then all of these beings have human problems and human like personalities, and voices. I think this is the difficulty in writing non human tales, is that the tales that most people empathize with, no matter how alien their premise or characters may be, still end up centering around human like traits and problems.

But these are essentially humans dressed up in fur suits. They have human attributes, human voices, even humanoid shapes.

My nickname in real life is vi, I sometimes add a second vi because I think it’s cute, and vox is Latin for voice, I think. So, vivivox. My voice.

So many things. Dealing with racists and bigots in the “most progressive” “safe space” communities, the fact that the reddit admins were totally fine with right wing terrorists organizing on their platform until it brought them bad press, the fact that if you so much as hint at the existence of transgender people on a major subreddit people will lose their damn minds.

Same here, I turned 21 in the midst of lockdown so I’ve been missing out…

Yeah that’s gonna be a lot of fun. I’ll definitely be getting it, I just can’t resist…

I’m excited for the myth & magic update to Dwarf Fortress.

“Under no pretext…”

But seriously. As a member of a minority group I understand that there are people who would have me killed. I understand as a worker living in the US that the government does not have my best interests in mind. I understand as a minority and a worker that the police are more likely to harm me than save me from a bad situation. So, with all that being known, how could I ever reasonably give up my weapon? It may stand between me and death some day.

Alongside this, the issue of gun violence in the US is not primarily an issue of people having guns, or mental illness. It is an issue of white supremacy and reactionary attitudes being normalized, and violent, toxic masculinity being entrenched in our society. The vast majority of shooters may have some kind of underlying mental illness, but notice the main things that are in common between them. Namely, they are generally white cishet men, and they almost always ascribe to some kind of hateful ideology.

Likewise when you tolerate another person’s intolerance you are showing them that their bigotry and hatred is simply a difference of opinion. This is dangerous because these are not simply differences in opinions. These beliefs reinforce systemic structures that get people killed day in and day out. By treating such opinions like just that - opinions - you are legitimizing oppressive structures. Even if your intent is to disprove these oppressive opinions through debate, the issue is that the simple act of debating is enough to bring legitimacy to a dangerous ideology. You are essentially telling minority groups that their right to exist is simply another talking point which is up for debate and questioning, while telling the bigot that their ideas are acceptable in day to day life. They absolutely shouldn’t be.

Paganism - for the pagans of Lemmy
I have created paganism as a safe place for discussion of pagan beliefs and practices. Please come on over if the path interests you or you are an adherent.

Heathenry, a place for Heathens to discuss their faith and practice.
I have created Heathenry, a safe space for Heathens or anyone interested in the path to discuss their worship, practice, and journey. Heathens are those who worship germanic deities - such as the Norse, Gothic, or Anglo Saxon - and believe in cosmic forces such as Wyrd and Orlaeg and the divine economy, aka the gifting cycle. If you are interested in the path or a follower already, please help me build a community where we can comfortably and safely share our thoughts and experiences.
