  • Almost as if it is a bad idea to use any kind of social media run by for-profit, venture-capital funded businesses... (sarcasm obviously).

  • Move Stonehenge to Tuvalu to Protect it from the Effects of Climate Change Activism
  • protest does shine a light on humanities superficial respect for historically important monuments and cultural sites

    Interestingly the former leader of the Taliban argued exactly the same way when asked why they destroyed some world famous statues in Afghanistan (but compared it to the total lack of care for the actual humans living in Afghanistan, which is ironic considering the source... but hey, everyone is the hero in their own story 🤷‍♂️ ).

  • ‘What if there just is no solution?’ How we are all in denial about the climate crisis
    www.theguardian.com ‘What if there just is no solution?’ How we are all in denial about the climate crisis

    In his new book, Tad DeLay suggests there is no rosy roadmap to go forward – but there are things we can do

    ‘What if there just is no solution?’ How we are all in denial about the climate crisis

    > >For denial doesn’t only amount to rejecting the evidence, he argues – it also consists of denying our role in the climate crisis; absolving ourselves through “carbon offsets, hybrid cars, local purchases, recycling”. And in this, far more of us are implicated. > > >In some ways, this argument might not seem all that new. Multiple authors have pointed out that green capitalism, not rightwing deniers of the crisis, is our greatest obstacle to properly confronting the problem. DeLay agrees. The difference is the lens he brings to it – using psychoanalysis to explain the mechanisms behind denial. > >

    Already 61 servers updated to Lemmy 0.19.5!
  • Yes, I could easily configure our Podman containers to auto-update, but given how there have been significant breaking bugs in Lemmy releases before, I think it's better to not automate it.

  • Removed
    “Systemd is the future”
  • Systemd is very useful for managing (rootless) Podman containers.

  • "Moderation tools are nonexistent on here. It also eats up storage like crazy [...] The software is downright frustrating to work with" - Can any other instance admins relate to this?
  • They are not included. You need to divide the 3.600€ by two main developers and then add up the irregular NLnet payments to that. So as a result it comes to approximately 3000€ for each of the two devs per month (6000€/month total). At least that is my understanding from what is written above.

  • "Moderation tools are nonexistent on here. It also eats up storage like crazy [...] The software is downright frustrating to work with" - Can any other instance admins relate to this?
  • Here it isn't so heavy on CPU, but the database eats RAM like crazy. My guess would be that their server is constantly swapping out stuff from RAM due to insufficient surplus RAM and this as a result creates the high CPU load.

  • Outrage Over Kidnapping of East African Pipeline Opponent
  • It's not that bad actually. Uganda has a very progressive refugee policy (likely because the President once was a refugee himself). But yeah, anything that could be seen as a threat to his decades long presidency is clamped down hard on.

  • Self hosting kids-friendly multiplayer games on Raspberry Pi 4
  • Minetest with mods & SuperTuxKart

  • Two definitions of self hosted
  • Hmm, I think there are more people that are #1 and #2 the same time (not me though) and the bigger divide is between those that rent a VPS and those that run a homelab.

    immich: Does a SSD/HDD make a noticable difference?
  • Usually* there is a database for the file meta-data that will benefit from faster access times of a SSD, the files themselves can be on a HDD.

    *not sure how Immich specifically does it.

  • Write Free Software Community
  • Yeah, sounds like the same bug that prevents cross-posting to work properly on lemmy-ui.

  • Write Free Software Community
  • You forgot adding a link (or more likely the stupid Lemmy 0.19.4 post submission bug at fault again).

  • Italy in late July? Have 15 days available
  • Probably too hot to do hiking in central and southern Italy during that time.

  • Lindroid
  • Hmm, yes maybe running GNU/Linux on a Lapdock could be an interesting usecase for this. Didn't think of that, thanks!

  • Lindroid
  • Hmm, interesting project from a technical perspective for sure, but I am not exactly sure why anyone would use it for anything other than testing some Linux distribution.

    I mean unlike Waydroid, which helps to run "that one Android app" you need on a mobile Linux device, there isn't really "that one Linux app" you need to run on an Android phone.

  • 80% of Americans say grocery costs have notably increased since the pandemic started, survey finds
  • Perceived inflation is not the same as actual inflation as measured by the official inflation basket. Quite often you have a situation where day to day goods are increasing in prices (and thus driving perceived inflation), while more permanent expensive but rarely bought goods (TVs, cars etc.) are dropping in prices, so that on average the official inflation rate isn't increasing that much.

  • 80% of Americans say grocery costs have notably increased since the pandemic started, survey finds
  • The main issue with their reporting is that they completely fail to mention that the profits of the retail chains have also spiked and are the main "cause" of these price increases.

  • Stop playing games with online security, Signal president warns EU lawmakers
  • Its a slippery slope thing. Sure, technically it doesn't break e2ee, but it basically forces app developers to integrate a trojan into their app that scans messages before they are encrypted and send. Right now it is "only" for images, but once this is in place and generally accepted, what is stopping lawmakers to extend it to scanning all messages?

  • Time to fix sleep schedule
  • I was being ironic. But look for a microwave with grill function. That is entirely separate from the microwave itself and adds some infrared heaters at the top. This is insufficient for baking, but frozen pizza with a pre-baked crust will absolutely get a bit cispsy in it.

    The regenerative urban garden I: No-till gardening

    I am an advocate of regenerative farming . But I’m not a farmer myself. The piece of land I steward is 1/3 acre — still sizable for an urban lot, but laughably minuscule compared to what Real Farmers are working with.
