I don’t even think they have a monopoly… as a hardcore gamer myself, it feels like most of my Steam library is indie games. If there’s even one Activision title among them I’d be surprised. Microsoft yes because I have Minecraft, but that’s the only one I can think of off the top of my head.

Big “meh” to this. Microsoft? Activision? Is there even a difference?

Probably actually based in Tirana

I think that’s because these things become real for you when you’re the victim of them, so for example someone who suffers as a victim of racism now has race made an important and real thing to them, whereas people who don’t suffer in that way can be “not interested” in it because it’s not real to them.

I’m not an expert in these things, but what is described in the post you linked sounds good to me

Ukraine’s needs are more important. Also the purpose of NATO, which won’t include Ukraine, is defensive. Putin should consider how shitty is government is and how much it threatens its neighbors.

How is this better than any of the existing open source protocols?

I mean, terms like “eastern” and “western” are not totally accurate, but in general yes Esperanto is a western language, and I can confirm. Essentially it takes after both western and eastern European languages to the maximum degree, and the fact that it became hyper-agglutinating and analytic (I hope that’s the right term) is not necessarily an “eastern” trait. Finno-Ugric languages are not “non-western”, are they?

Exciting headline, but I looked into it a little further and it is as of yet not abolished, nor has the government said it will do so. However, there is hope I guess that it will not come back after protests have forced it into remission.

I wonder how the bright people over at and lemmygrad are attempting to explain this. Probably what hfkldjbuq wrote (“funded and led by the CIA”).

Yeah I definitely get that. What I wanted to say was just something along the lines of, “statehood equals terror”, so by all means…

While I don’t disagree, all states pretty much engage in terror.

CaspianReports is not as good as it used to be, I think. I stopped watching it a long time ago.

To think I lived to see this day

Eventually Russia will withdraw from all of Ukraine and other occupied territories

And then when Lemmy adopts the AT protocol it will become the world’s biggest social site

OK checked PIV and it does in fact mean to search.

Religion is already an identity, so you can’t turn it into one…

Admittedly I don’t really know what I’m doing, but I came at a set of options after reading articles online and looking at the documentation. I ended up with this set of options:


noatime and nodatacow should obviously increase speed because it’s just doing less. I have not yet determined if autodefrag is worth it, but in theory it helps the mechanical disk in the long run by having it seek less. You lose some performance I think especially when a lot of data is being written, but my expectation is that it does more good than harm.

I tried alternative approaches like disabling autodefrag and enabling datacow but with compression to see if compression would significantlly boost performance (by taking some load off of the disk and putting it onto the CPU/RAM, which are faster on my system), but that didn’t help at all and I just went back to nodatacow.

I guess the smartest thing would be to just replace the disk with a fast SSD and this problem would probably just go away, but even today computers are still shipping with very slow hard drives, which doesn’t agree with Linux anymore.

Note: Also even before btrfs when I was running ext4 I still had to tweak it like disable atime and turn off journaling. For my use case the best FS is probably FreeBSD’s file system, which doesn’t need journaling or cow, but can just do soft updates which keeps the FS healthy and doesn’t cost anything. A power failure could only result in unwritten data but never file system corruption.

I find that the pros outweigh the cons. I had to disable datacow and a couple things but overall I got more or less the same performance in the end plus some nice features like pooling storage.
