Cake day: kesä 28, 2020


Yeah, KDE comes with an automatic wallpaper changer with the “image of the day”, usually Bing or NASA are good picks.

I’d only consider Elementary OS “too user friendly”.

Argentina is a good first option, I think Chile would be even better. Not only a global conflict, but a massive global catastrophe.

I thought the answer was going to be Falkon, but it ended up being an ad response…

It’s not free? Maybe because I was an early adopter, but I have never donated and have both pm.me and proton.me

Yeah you’re right, it was a realization for companies like Disney; “why are we letting them profit from our stuff when we can do it in our own terms?”

I’m surprised music companies are not doing the same with Spotify, but I guess most of the music is under UMG (I think) anyway.

It does cut a considerable chunk of size from a video, I’ve noticed Youtube uses AV1 in 8k more than anything. But so far only Google seems to have a decent way of converting videos to AV1 because ffmpeg is still way too slow to even consider.

Unless there’s a big leap in encoding time, I don’t see the piracy scene switching to AV1 in the next 5 years.

That’s neither crazy nor stupid, but it does seem those are more like inner thoughts and most people don’t share them.

It’s not dumb shit, nowadays if you create a company like that you need to rely on someone else’s servers, so your word of keeping your data safe means nothing. At least if they don’t keep their word with their own servers, they’d be going down on their own.

Also, the question “does anybody use their service” sounds very naive of what’s going on in the world, a lot of people uses Protonmail, it’s probably the first choice of people wanting to avoid big companies.

From what I’ve seen when a community dies, you need to seize the moment and invite those people to come to a new place. Like for example, if r/GME finally gets banned, many would need a new similar place to lurk; after many are aware of it, it’s only a matter of time.

Are you not following the conversation? What was so hard to understand? This stance of “they’re taking my freedom away” is always ridiculous; as I already stated, allowing that kind of content will hurt the platform in the long run.

It’s an extremely easy decision, either prohibit that content and as a community agree it’s the only kind of stuff nobody wants to see, or blindly allow anything and see lemmy die.

That’s completely wrong. People agree on things we don’t want to see, like how most forums on the internet ban porn, which is not something bad but nobody wants to see that while browsing funny cat videos.

It’s called agreement of civility. This will make the site last longer.

Flawed logic. Saying the dev will ban random things he doesn’t like is wrong since it ignores the fact he’s only disallowing something we’re all agree it’s toxic and will only destroy the site at the long run.

I created an account not knowing what kind of site it was, and now my email is in someone list…

In my experience, even Ubuntu was hard to use in 2006. The documentation for most distros was meant for people already familiar with technical stuff.

I don’t see how filtering very few words could annoy anyone, none of them are used in normal circumstances (except b***h I guess).

Instead of filtering the words, you could change them for something nice. Like changing “idiot” for “dork”; sounds like it’d make it fun (and of course, still filtering the worst offenders).


Ah! the other day I was thinking I made an account in some reddit alternative years ago but couldn’t remember the name of it. Made like 2 posts until I realized it was just the same kind of politics everywhere.
