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

Old timers

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

Meta meme

Old stuff is pretty neat. My favorite part of the article was the clip from The Mummy, it dates back to the turn of the millenium.

By the way, I shared a video about the looting of the Great Pyramid yesterday if people want some more egyptology.

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.


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.

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.

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.


"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?
