Search finds existing knowledge. ChatGPT easily makes up lies as answers. I don’t think this is comparable.




it actually is !asklemmy@lemmy.ml! usernames start with @, communities with !


We’re currently earning a bit more on average per month than it cost to run our current server

awesome, that’s good to hear.


This is scary I think. Is the fediverse that big already, that megacorps are trying to get in? :/


They won’t because their business model is exactly the opposite. They host your blog but then only allow viewers to read like 5 articles per month until they have to pay a subscription. Or something like that, it’s one of those deeply annoying websites that I don’t understand why anyone uses it.



captivated investors, tech giants

that doesn’t mean anything. Investors and tech giants are building the metaverse that nobody uses as well.




Because activists often are already very busy and ironically don’t have too much time to learn new and better alternatives. I know it’s frustrating.



Politics and journalists should never have used twitter as much as they did… It was always weird to me how journalists perceived twitter as some kind of public square.


I never thought it was bad. We have tonnes and tonnes of problematic garbage, but solar panels made from aluminion framing and silicon can just be put on a landfill if there’s nothing else to do with them. Just make a special landfill and that’s it, I bet it’s 1000 times better for the environment than putting normal household trash in a landfill.



Go for it, that’s why Lemmy exists!


Yeah story of mastodon 😂

I love mastodon but some people there really think that they understood it all just because they like privacy.







Many right-wing parties in other parts of the world are like them. They are dangerous.

[Question] Add cheap HDD storage (from home) to a small Peertube VPS

So why not have a virtual file system on the VPS, which looks like it has the size of the HDD and it uses a specified amount of the vps storage for caching. So if someone watches a popular part of a popular video, the vps can serve the video content from the local disk. If someone wants to watch the video that nobody ever watches, it's not a problem since the uplink from home can easily deliver that as well, without the video taking the precious storage. > Block caching would be best, since file caching wouldn't be ideal with video files being really big in some cases.

I know that peertube works with s3, but it will only move transcoded videos into a bucket and then serve them directly from there. I don't want that from home, it would also not use the upload performance of the VPS for popular videos. > > Any thoughts? Good idea or not? > > I have worked with bcache in the past and was always very impressed with the performance, I think my scenario could really work.

[SOLVED] Add cheap HDD storage (from home) to a small Peertube VPS
This is the second try (original post: https://feddit.de/post/426890) of me trying to get an answer, this time I'll be more specific of what I am thinking to do. I thought a more generalized question would be enough. Sorry for that. A peertube server needs lots of storage. Many of the videos will hardly get any views. Storage space on a vps is pretty expensive, storage space in general isn't cheap. So my thought was to have a disk at home (maybe external disk on a raspberry pi) and a VPS. The VPS only has a very limited amount of storage, but is otherwise totally able to run peertube well. So why not have a virtual file system on the VPS, which looks like it has the size of the HDD and it uses a specified amount of the vps storage for caching.

If someone wants to watch the video that nobody ever watches, it's not a problem since the uplink from home can easily deliver that as well, without the video taking the precious storage.

I know that peertube works with s3, but it will only move transcoded videos into a bucket and then serve them directly from there. I don't want that from home, it would also not use the upload performance of the VPS for popular videos. Any thoughts? Good idea or not?

Oh weren't they one of the automakers who thought hydrogen was the fuel of the future?? xD

Expand VPS with slow cached network storage
Hey I am looking for a way to have a network folder on a vps that uses a configurable amount of local storage for caching.

right-wing libertarians be like
hey I am a genious I will simply make a social space (or social media website) without any rules. So everybody can do whatever they want. *Someone spamming horse porn everywhere* okay maybe let's have some rules, like no spamming or illegal stuff. *People keep posting my little pony content or gore to unrelated sub forums* Hmm let's just make a full CoC that basically only permits the kind of right-wing thought that we like. End result is a shithole that nobody likes using, since right-wingers don't even like their own people. genius
