I recently switched over since neeva shut down (though I’ve had a free account for a while). It’s amazing how good it is sometimes.

I thought the whole point of the Fediverse was to have an entire social media website to myself!

You still can if you’re technical enough. Many people run their own instance.

Mastodon has a flagship instance for normies before mozilla. Lemmy doesn’t

This feels like a strawman. It’s one thing to use some apple because you must but another to embrace it to the point of using their facial thing as your profile picture (which could be construed as indirectly endorsing it).

Lite-XL is my light editor for all situations. Vscode for more stuff. Rider for .net

Plus maybe it’s just me but when I open lemmy, I don’t want to see the rest of the fediverse. Lemmy serves a very different purpose from mastodon or plemora.

It’s one thing I never understood about the fediverse. These platforms are separate on the normal web for a reason.

AV1 is the best option we have for video but co-opting for image use is just dumb when we have better things like jxl.

It was my search engine for like two years. They really did do a lot of good stuff:

  • no ads
  • focus on community generated (reddit, forums) content over seo spam
  • special widgets for things like recipes/sports scores and even stack overflow
  • search your own content from e.g gmail (though I never trusted them enough to use this)
  • ability to rank sites
  • one of the first to implement AI results, with sources from the beginning

Now I’m looking at kagi.com. They’ve basically been doing what neeva did, but better, and with more features. Plus they’re bootstrapped and sustainable instead of running on a VC money high like neeva was.

It’s not instagram itself, but a new app made by instagram

I’m thinking of joining beehaw for this very reason. I like lemmy, been on here a while (and used to browse without an account for longer), but lemmygrad and tankies spoil lemmy.ml and it’s not getting better as I’d hoped. I still stayed so far, because until recently these two were the only instances with any activity, but now that’s changing.

Honestly can’t explain why it’s so satisfying. I’ve never seen one that goes this far either. Not only does he disprove the app’s bolder claims, he full on hacks into their database and gets accesses to everyone’s messages.

The fedddit chaps seem to be making lots of cool tools

Reddit did add the ability to add text to anything recently, but yeah, it’s weird it took so long while they keep releasing useless new rot.

The problem is, even with the huge shift to electric cars, this is not changing, even though issues of weight are even worse there. Tesla has the model x and are hyping the cybertruck. Rivian started with a pickup. Ford led with their F-150 lightning.

Also known as cunningham’s law, and certainly not specific to reddit.

Musk didn’t own twitter when I made that comment. Twitter has revealed how bad he’s gotten. I don’t think my comment applies anymore.

I’d be more interested in connecting lemmy with discourse, as it’s a more natural fit, and I’m assuming easier too since they’re partially copying lemmy’s approach.

??? = tell people to send bitcoin to an address to show whatever they want.

yeah well, we’re talking about the illegal stuff

It’s a paradox. I can see what you will do in the future, but you can read my mind and see it too, and so you will change your next moves, but if I can see the future, surely I would already know that, but then you will know it too, so you change your moves… etc.

The only way out is if you make the same moves regardless of what you read in my mind.

That’s how good reporting works.

Pakistan is a poor country that gives off very few emissions and has very little ability to make large scale changes. Also the government(s) are utterly incompetent.

Former Prime Minister Imran Khan did make some efforts to improve the country’s environmental outlook, but well, not likely to get anything more than that.

Two options I’m guessing:

  1. Well, why would they bother, the whole world knows it’s all a shame anyway, it’s all just posturing. Well except the tankies, and they’ll suck it all up.
  2. Putin has surrounded himself with too many yes men, and is now living in some sort of dream world.

Weird that you should post this older blog post, because they just finished open sourcing this morning, here’s the repo

Precisely. California is in fact well known in setting new standards that other states follow, especially regarding car emissions. Actually even Massachusetts was following California, they were just faster to sign it into law.

I’m also looking for something like this, but it’s hard. Facebook is really hostile to apps like this, far more than say google, reddit or twitter.

Consider how much credibility I’d have if I babbled about Germany as “The German Federal Republic” (or, more extremely, translated it like you did and came up with “The Dutch’s Land’s Federal Republic”) or about the USA as “The American United States”. Extrapolate.

If the entire english speaking world did likewise with irrelevant exceptions then you would not lose any credibility. Calling it “The German Federal Republic” would tell me nothing more beyond that you are part of the english speaking world.

Newer search engines like neeva and kagi allow you to blacklist or downrank certain sites as well as the reverse. Try them, if you can. @Helix@feddit.de

Unfortunate time to comment this. I’ve realized my error now too, not that it matters.

It absolutely does, because if you’re dabbling in crypto, it affects others too

“Centrism” isn’t really a position one can have… what you mean is “in support of the status quo” which is IMHO also right leaning as it is inherently conservative.

This is why we need more diversity of thought

You don’t solve a problem by ignoring it.

I think you want nfc, it was supposed to be what qr codes are now.

This is more of a summary for a series of articles btw.

Community updates
1. The community now has a topic 2. The community now has rules ~~totally not stolen from the other one I moderate~~ 3. Though the discussion has currently been mostly about nuclear fission, please feel free to post about nuclear fusion as well. It is all nuclear power I mentioned in the announcement post that I want to make a wiki. Still stands. Lemmy of course does not have a wiki function like Reddit, so I just gotta figure out how I will do it. Suggestions are welcome.

Lemmy.ml is a test instance? [Edit: fixed]
This is currently the sidebar on lemmy.ml ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/7fbdfb34-13e7-4c96-80fc-32d13064b4a8.png) and the page title says the same. I hope this is a mistake.

Google search is dying, Reddit is the next search engine
Essentially saying that due to seo spam and commercialization, Google is now useless for search and more and more people do site:reddit.com. I think it's a little extreme but agree generally. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/073f5202-c6b1-407c-b60e-797a52a3c06f.png)
