I’m more concerned about the Chinese hackers that have stolen decades worth of information from the US government. It has been called the largest transfer of wealth in history.

> As a Community Interest Company its main purpose is charitable, to make light aviation available to developing countries, where aviation fuel is scarce and expensive, but sunlight is plentiful.

My family lives in the USA and my brother has been a Manchester City fan for the past decade. He, recently, asked me to watch a soccer (i.e. football) match for the first time. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it and will be following the Premier League for the rest of this season.

Server logs wouldn’t contain anything pertaining to the users here. This sounds like something you could bring to the Lemmy developers since they may know. Devs: Dessalines & nutomic

I’ve checked the Modlog (and you can too) and I don’t see anything to indicate a ban against your account.

To almost no one’s surprise. Many years ago, when it dawned on me what Google is (the largest data mining corporation on Earth), I’ve tried to avoid them as best as I can.

Thanks for letting us know.

I’m not sure, exactly, what it means to “live an honest life”. In my opinion, that’s subjective.

Saving money is finance 101 from a personal standpoint. So, what are the best vehicles for saving that money? I understand that it differs based on where you are geographically and any number of other circumstances.

For middle-class Americans, such as my self, I have tied up our retirement savings (mostly) in the US stock market through Roth IRAs.

I’ve written a script that automatically keeps the logs small.

The server is, currently, using 18GB of the allotted 25GB.

At what level do we have control over the images uploaded to beehaw?

How much are the server costs?

All of our financials are transparent and can be viewed here.

The server costs are roughly $6 per month.

When Beehaw was first launched our disk usage (physical space on the server) was approximately 45%. Right now we are up to 72% and this will continue to climb over time. At the moment, I can only see two options. Firstly, go up an additional tier with our server host which would increase the monthly hosting cost. Secondly, figure out a way to remove old and inactive posts. Hopefully, there is a batch process for this or something similar. I'm not an expert in this area, sadly. What are your thoughts?

Forthcoming book by Siddharth Kara: [Cobalt Red: How the Blood of the Congo Powers Our Lives ]( > Cobalt Red is the searing, first-ever exposé of the immense toll taken on the people and environment of the Democratic Republic of the Congo by cobalt mining, as told through the testimonies of the Congolese people themselves. Activist and researcher Siddharth Kara has traveled deep into cobalt territory to document the testimonies of the people living, working, and dying for cobalt. To uncover the truth about brutal mining practices, Kara investigated militia-controlled mining areas, traced the supply chain of child-mined cobalt from toxic pit to consumer-facing tech giants, and gathered shocking testimonies of people who endure immense suffering and even die mining cobalt. > Cobalt is an essential component to every lithium-ion rechargeable battery made today, the batteries that power our smartphones, tablets, laptops, and electric vehicles. Roughly 75 percent of the world’s supply of cobalt is mined in the Congo, often by peasants and children in sub-human conditions. Billions of people in the world cannot conduct their daily lives without participating in a human rights and environmental catastrophe in the Congo. In this stark and crucial book, Kara argues that we must all care about what is happening in the Congo―because we are all implicated.

I’m surprised that it took this long for them to implement this.

Same and I will support them as much as I can. Firefox (Developer Edition) has been my default browser for a very long time.
