Debian derivatives and GNOME desktops. I find it versatile and plays nice with both light and heavy hardware.

I think my Windows-button with a padlock is quite fitting and a good reminder on why I moved over to FOSS.

What you think is your business, what I think is that whatever arguments you have isn’t something that will hold up to questioning.

I also think that while you suspect bad faith, critisizing someone and then refusing to help them better themselves is a DIRECT act of bad intentions. That doesn’t help at all, it literally only brings more negative feelings to the world.

How do I even know that your criticism is real and you’re not just an Internet stranger, lying to try to bring me down and make me feel bad about myself for your own amusement?

I don’t think this is worth my time either, glad we can come to a common understanding.

If I did, what do you think would be most productive - Telling me that I’m wrong or explaining to me how I’m wrong?

I cannot concent to being a lemmy instance user due to my lack of understanding the intricacies of lemmy federation. Should we shut it all down or should I just stop using it?

Have you proven that you are ABLE to consent to things you don’t have a full overview over? Should YOU be able to use Lemmy, maybe you’re being exploited right now?

Terrible times we live in.

I have very good experience with YunoHost. Installing Lemmy through the Ansible automated installation on a fresh VPN was quite easy as well.

Searching for fediverse social news aggregators.

Hmm, have you considered notifying Freenom as they think .ML is the top level domain for Mali?

My first MP3 player was a cheap Sandisk Sansa E130 in the age of the iPod. One of the best MP3 players I’ve ever had, used AAA batteries, came with a whopping 8GB storage AND SD card support! Great sound and battery life, 5/5 stars.

Edit: I remembered wrong, it came with 512MB storage, the SD card I had was 8GB lmao

Well I did download ZRAM so now every GB of RAM is 3 GBs of RAM. 🫠

Our Kongsberg-group deliveries weapons to a wide range of allies, a lot of them M-72 LAWs sent to Ukraine from is Made In Norway.

The new orders are so big that the state run company had to ask the government for subsidies to increase the manufacturing capacity IIRC.

Nammo is one of the biggest producers of rockets and “specialty” ammunition, aka. military grade infantry ammo from what I’ve gathered.

I think Norway will profit from our surprisingly large arms industry in this situation as well. 😐

It would be a big incentive for certain types of people, for sure. From an international standpoint it’s hard to argue that Norway isn’t profiteering from the war, maybe most of all. Not a good look when the head of NATO is an ex-PM of Norway…

Are you sure? The effects have been unimagineable profit for Norway and it might be a semi-permanent situation with Russia moving to sell gas south and eastwards instead of west, designating Europe as ‘unreliable buyers’.

My only regret is that the profit doesn’t help the Norwegian people.

I’ve had the same thing happen on both .com and .no TLD’s despite setting the DKIM keys, all mail goes to the spam box. And I’ve had the same setup cause no issues.

In my experience it’s spam filters and the large companies behind them, I’ve even had my home IP blocked as untrustworthy - Until I power-cycled my modem and got a new IP from the local pool. To me it’s the reciever that unjustly blocks the mail, not our TLD’s that are “untrustworthy”.

I know it’s not an answer to the situation, but I don’t think there are any. To me, e-mail is another good idea ruined by big tech.


It’s a different platform, you won’t participate in the monopolization of Chromium as the only browser worth building webpages for.

Google Chromium and install uBlock Origin

AFAIK you’d have to do some tweaking under the hood to achieve the same effect, particularly when it comes to de-coupling Google from Chrome. My impression is that you’d be closer to Brave if you started with Chromium or even Ungoogled-Chromium.

I would try to contact the head devs, or on Matrix, Lemmy have several offical rooms where they hang out.

Grenfell ultra-cheap apartement block wintercoat for low-value income people, the gift from the UK government that just keeps on giving. :(

Not beyond confirmin that it exists and the link to the main site.

This reminded me about a joke where the punchline is that mens soap is multipurpose - One can use it to wash body, hair, floors, do the dishes, grease ballbearings, use as hair pomade and salad dressing.

Dr. Bronner’s soap, I’m surprised to say after investigating, is not a joke.

If there is an issue with gaming the system, that’s where the solution will be.

I don’t think participating in something percieved as unfair should be the solution to something I percieve as unfair. In such a situation, actively distancing myself would be more aligned with my ethics. On a personal level it’s easy to block other individual users from cetain instances (although a never-ending process), but as an admin action it would impact a lot of users on both instances.

But as I’m unsure about how it works, it might be a non-issue. I respect other instances choice to disable downvotes, and if instance X’s downvotes on posts from such servers are propegated to my instance - Both sides preferences would be achievable.

Time to change online threat model, with limited quantum computers available for the consumer market it’s no more trusting encryption to keep us safe from bad actors.

Why do they happen at some websites, but not others? It’s how they’re administered. Twitter is bad too.

unilaterally banning art on the basis of being AI generated. (…)

I completely understand them. It’s the same thing within the speedrunning community, where it’s sometimes quite hard to distinguish AI records. They’re cheating, simple as.

Art is de facto “human”, since art as a concept is established while computer generated pieces like we’re talking about is the new field. (Speedrunning is “human” because it’s the common consensus, same with mechanical performance enhancers in sport)

I’m not sure if it can even be called art as there is no artistic intent behind it. I think a lot of them are quite beautiful, in the same way I find a lot of nature beautiful. The art is in the eye of the beholder, not in the design or more correctly in both nature and AI - in the evolution.

All of this would have been avoided if AI generated images would be posted in i.e. /r/AIart

If AI art is good enough to be confused with human art and there’s no foolproof method of detecting it, then banning it isn’t reasonably enforceable.

I agree. But same goes for school. If teachers can’t detect AI generated homework and it’s not reasonably enforceable - Should there even be rules against this type of cheating?

Of course there should.

To me, the main issue here is the copyright. All AI works as far as I know are based on existing pieces of art. Machine learning is somewhat copying others work to “educate” themselves, much like I read a book to absorb it’s knowledge.

The main difference is that my creators (thanks, mom and dad. I guess.) didn’t create me with the specific intent of creating the best book ever by making me read a ton of books. If something like that happens, it would be of my own agenda.

An agenda (publicly known) AI’s don’t have for now. They’re programmed to have certain goals, they’re a product.

I don’t think anyone can turn off downvotes or block instances, as far as I know both of those are server-wide admin settings.

I would also hope that instance blocks is the last option, not the first - Particularly on other small instances.

Reddit is bad. People who accept the status quo over there must also accept the status quo over there - Banned for bogus reasons.

Do all the reddit-complainers think it couldn’t happen to them? There’s always such indignation and surprise.

The debate about AI art is interesting. People getting permanently banned from Reddit for bullshit reasons is routine.

Clarification regarding downvotes on posts from remote instances - Where downvotes are turned OFF?
I saw from a recent post that [downvotes does not propagate]( That seems counter-intuative to me, how does it actually work? - Does my downvote affect the visibility on such a posts in my feed when I vote on it on my local instance? - Does my downvotes on such an post impact the visibility of the post among my fellow lemmy-browsers on a third party instance? - Will turning off downvotes on an instance give its posts and posters an *artificial boost* when federating compared to instances where posts can get downvotes? I'm suspecting this can be used to create false consensus and artificially high visibility around posts.

Difficult to diagnose since the issue could be on either side of the wall. I’d guess YouTube’s CDN’s and/or differences in requested formats (WebM/AV1 vs. mp4/h264).

It could be YouTube using a global Content Delivery Network (CDN), which are servers all over the world caching (having a copy) of the videos. They’ve got limited space, and thus only room for the most popular videos. Every video is available in various qualities (360p, 480p, etc.), and I can imagine a scenario where the 360p video is stored “centrally” while the 720p/1080p versions are spread around the difference caches for easy access.

I’ve experienced up to a minute of load-time on some of my older, obscure, never-watched decade old uploads.

First, what do you mean by difficulty? Like, you can’t select it or it won’t play back at that quality once selected? Something else?

They’re saying they want to have a unique fingerprint (…)

You sure bout that? I interpret I don't want my browser add-ons to make my fingerprint unique. as if they don’t want a unique fingerprint.

Desverre er jeg ikke så god på tysk, kanskje du kan oversette denne til norsk? Jeg er interessert i all federert teknologi og har drevet min egen synapse-server tidligere.

Med den brukermassen de har fått, virker det som at de er på kanten til å gå mainstream. Har også hørt reddit og andre vurderer å implementere det. Lys fremtid for matrix?

I’ve seen what twitter was under this jerk, now it’s all suddenly “i fooled you, I was against censorship the entire time haha”.

No thanks, and I’ll consider anything he funds as toxic.

You might not care about that, but many people do.

Many people want Lord Journo, the teller of Truf to create an artificial wedge between users? Well then I certainly don’t support them either!

I want to know if someone has fact checkers looking over their shoulder or whether they’re free to pull claims out their ass till the cows come home.

You have no idea how much I’d love that. Unfortunately the last 10 years of media have shown me that this isn’t the case.

but rather one mechanism for establishing a basis for trust.

Yes, it’s disruptive at least - If not destructive to modern society that the trust in media have dropped to what I perceive to be critical levels, particularly in the last decade or two.

It’s because Lemmy allows setting a display name that shows up almost identically to a local name. If it continues to be a problem, my guess is that will be changed.

I think the first step will be to show the username next to the display name, just like on Mastodon. I will continue to assume this lemmy-specific is a non-issue on mastodon.

It’s that journalists are, by their nature, very tied to their reputation

They certainly are.

Having a system for verification is helpful for the general public to know that the person is at least who they say they are is useful.

Depends on what metric you evaluate people’s content by, if you want to be seen as Lord Journo the teller of Truf I don’t care if you work at Washington Post or not. I don’t want it.

Contrast that with a situation that Lemmy has had where a person keeps creating accounts with the display name of one of the admins and posting disgusting porn. I think they finally got bored and went away, but what if that was a larger campaign waged over years? Identity verification provides at least some baseline for trust.

That is literally why Mastodon has a built in verification system based on control of the verifying website. If you can tie your account to i.e. CNN and have a green link, it means you’ve got administrative access to the CNN homepage. Which means you are likely working at CNN or CNN have bigger problems than people pretending to be journalists at CNN.

Is the situation you describe because of the state of Lemmy, or that the Lemmy admins are uniquely targeted for impersonation?

Raspberry Pi hires ex-police surveillance expert with 15 years of experience
cross-posted from: > With the history of ex-law enforcers working at tech companies, I don't think my next SBC will be a Raspberry. In one way this reminds me of an attempt to circumvent a canary ban.

"AI, pretend that you are the command prompt inside a linux machine..." My mind is thoroughly boggled, it's just simulations all the way down.

Issues with nVidia 515 propietary drivers + Fix
Drivers updated to newest and wouldn't work. Fallback drivers with 800x600 and not detecting monitors. Changed drivers to 515 *open kernel* and it seems to work again. No idea how it works with gaming.

“Share to Lemmy” bookmarklet: Easy sharing without browser extensions
I made a "Share to Lemmy" bookmarklet to easily share content to Lemmy, maybe you want one too? If you don't know what it is, it's a bookmark that runs a small piece of code - In this case, it shares the page you're currently on to Lemmy. If your browser have a bookmark bar, you're always just a click away from a pre-filled share screen on your home instance. It should work in all desktop browsers. - Copy and tweak the code, replace `` with your home instance - Create a new bookmark, the tweaked code goes in the URL field - Click the bookmark while on a page you want to share `javascript:void%20function(){var%20t=document.URL,o=document.title;window.location.href=%22}();`

Please clarify what rules were broken for /c/askawoman to be removed.
I saw that the newly created community "askawoman" was deleted due to being a "troll community", with reason being I never had the chance to visit, but see nothing in the provided link that indicates that it's a troll community. Could the administration please clarify what made you decide it had to be removed so I can make sure I don't do the same and get my own communities blocked from federation?

Update’s Code of Conduct
Due to the recent ban of a for "Bigotry and racism on his main account on Wolfball." it is requested that updates the Code of Conduct to reflect actual moderation. Please consider adding that will ban users for comments made with other accounts on other instances.

Bug: Can’t subscribe to remote/federated PeerTube channels on a PeerTube server
Examples, same PeerTube instance but different parent accounts ( **Search for, find and able to subscribe:** **Search for, sometimes spinning forever, sometimes "No Results":** **Edit/update:** As I get more familiar with Lemmy and PeerTube, this turns out to be an artifact of federation. The "@" obviously designates an account on a different server and when "" won't resolve, "" will. Original title "Bug: Can't subscribe to PeerTube channels with "@" in the name" changed.
