brave is also run by a homopobic alt right ass so…

please note: I do not support coil


It’s a novelty, it can fit on a floppy. That’s my conclusion, it’s possible I’m missing something.

Also add nim to that list!


More so, their mirroring from Gemini, not the other way around


Drew is going to be very mad…

I share your frustration however, and am happy you did this. Maybe he will eventually come around and laugh



Someone said

Ad blockers are a self defense technology by nature

Add ads in small quantities to your website that respect me and my privacy and I might just whitelist you, but at this point the internet is unusable without AdBlock


Freenom attempts to take your domains after you miss a reregistration or if they decide to, without emailing you.

You then need to buy the domain because you have linked to it everywhere


  1. There is literally nothing better, discord is closed source, matrix is slow and buggy
  2. It gets the job done with no fan fair
  3. It self moderates, only people willing to jump through the hoops to talk constructivly will do so
  4. Retro tech is fun

Not positive about OBS, it’s mostly support in software I use


I’m not using wayland because I need to screenshare


All this does is make it harder for your contributors. I’m ok with it for my projects, but many are not. I have certainly skipped out on some drive by contributions because it would require the hassle of making an account.


Yeah this, also consider that gitlab is not federated and people are not likely to make an account on your gitlab instance to contribute.

The same thing goes for discord, more people use it than matrix, and therfore you reach a larger audience by using it

re @Echedenyan@lemmy.ml not sure what part you are talking about, I’m happy to shoot myself in the foot for my projects because I don’t expect much contributors nore feel a drive for a big star count


Do I like discord personally? No

Do I think discord is a necessary evil? Yes

You’re shooting yourself in the foot as a OSS project if you don’t use discord, same with not using github.

But, at least for me, I hate my feet :)


Leasure reading has fallen by the wayside. It’s a pity but I like a particular type of book that is rarely fulfilled. I mostly just read my subscribed RSS feeds

If anyone has recommendations, I like surreal nonfiction and fiction (not too fantasy, think “his dark materials”), with an emphasis on storytelling and character development. I enjoy most densities, I occasionally dare read academia.



I think explicitly gendered emojis are due to have different varieties, but imagine if we added hair to 😒.

I do agree with the skin color, why? No one is that color.


Yeah I’m certainly trying to abstain from bringing politics into moderation. Do you agree to a reasonable (human rights are not political, don’t offend people, no conspiracies) extent?


Do you want to nominate someone for mod?

Hey all, I think it’s unfair for me to be the only moderator (plus the admins!). …

Someone should really revamp email

Email is already nicely federated, but I think it’s time for a change. Services like protonmail claim to offer encryption between users, but you can’t host your own instance. It would be awesome if there was a spec somewhere for a federated email service that defines …

Libre micropayments?

I really like this idea of coil.com, supporting creators based on how often you engage with their content, but don’t really like the cryptocurrency and the closed source aspect. Flattr seems better but is still closed source. Is there anything I can use to fund my website? …

[Mod] What is your vision for asklemmy?
lock

Hey! Back after a large break from lemmy and after returning to the community it seems it is more advice focused: what is the best way to learn programming vs story focused what is a bad mistake when you started programming. …
