Things may be bleak indeed – but not for his sex life.

He has no self-awareness, and that is also creepy as fuck.

I would answer him “Just beat it!”

According to my understanding, the instances to be listed at join-lemmy are collected with a crawler. The crawler seems to have had problems, and this makes me curious. I am not suspecting anything like my instance not being fit for being listed there.

According to my understarding, it’s just because of the crawler.

Choose an user of your instance, press the three-dot-button --> There is an option “appoint as admin”.

The year of the Linux desktop has been going on for the last few years.

Oh, I remember! My first MP3 player could play music from an SD card, no idea of the brand. Later I got Creative Muvo V200 that also had a radio.

In 2006 I got my fist phone, Nokia 6630. Some years afterwards I bought a headphone adapter for it, a 2GB memory card and downloaded a good MP3 player software. Then I used it as my “daily driver” for listening MP3’s for years. At the time it wasn’t really common to use only a phone for such purpose.

Don’t forget the late Satoru Iwata of Nintendo.

Elon Musk has done a tremendous job in making alternative social media platforms flourish!

FFDP is radio-friendly crap that has nothing to do with heaviness. When it comes to band recommendations, try The Dillinger Escape Plan for example.

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

Been watching let’s plays of Scorn and HR Giger would certainly be proud of it.

PSA: The latest Pop OS update breaks Plymouth
I started my computer today and after the BIOS boot logo nothing showed up. Usually Plymouth's disk decryption screen shows up as my SSD is encrypted. I legit thought something had broken my computer and even updated my BIOS. Still, nothing, just a black screen. Then I checked Reddit's /r/Pop_OS and many users have had [the]( same [problem]( Apparently the latest system update has broken Plymouth, so after the BIOS logo one has to input the decryption password blindly. And BAM – then the Pop OS desktop shows up! I'm telling this here in case anyone else uses Pop OS. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

There has been many leaked videos and it all looks carefully crafted (albeit heavily in progress), it can’t be fake.

Wait until Zoomers become teachers.

The new PM has barely worked a week and BAM – suddenly the Queen has died! I know the first week in a new job is usually hard but THAT hard?

Zucc has the latest cyborg tech combined with his lizard DNA, he is the most interesting (and the least human-like) option.

I don’t think Chris Pratt would be fitting for Eggman, he’s just not the villain type. Eggman’s voice actor Mike Pollock would however a logical choice! However, it may be that the third Sonic movie may have a different villain altogether.

Valve really set the ball rolling with Steam Deck and Steam OS.

Yo dawg I herd you like Doom so we put a Doom in your Doom so you can Doom while you Doom.

Today, in "Look how the mighty have fallen", part 9001: > With more than 30 years of experience, Tomonobu Itagaki said that entering the field of Web3.0 is completely new for him but really rewarding since he can work with new technologies. Although the industry is still brand-new, Itagaki believes it will grow steadily. > His Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series have created multiple sales records in the Japanese game industry, which has made him an icon and one of the highest-grossing game series producers in Japan. > He explained his intention to make games—real experiences—where people can compete against each other. He also commented that he was interested in not only developing games based on nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, but also the Metaverse and is planning to use the technologies as a great weapon. Itagaki believes it is vital to embrace the changes and take on the new challenges inherent in blockchain technology. This all makes me want to puke.

I'm absolutely disgusted by this. Legal action all the way! Also this shows what problems disinformation causes.

There couldn’t be a better time for switching to Linux.

Exactly, this sounds like playing with semantics.

If Trump really played 4D chess as it’s often claimed, he wouldn’t reveal that publicly.

Blockchain can have practical use for fields like supply chain management, energy, banking and food industry. Do NFTs have this quality?

This reminded of the son zone, as told by this vintage rage comic.

My guess is that you receive new users mainly via, is that correct?

I haven’t really done promotion for my instance so that is correct.

I think it would help a lot of we put 2-4 “recommended instances” at the top of that page, particularly small or general-purpose instances like yours. It would also be pretty simple to have different recommendations for each language, which should help regional instances. There could be a sort of tag system as well, but thats a bit more effort to implement. What do you think?

That would be magnificent!

On a side note, we would also like to help with the creation of a general-purpose instance that is less focused on politics than most of the existing instances.

My intention with was to create a general-purpose instance with no specific political leaning.

And never forget what Lincoln said.

I have a folder full of troll science, this brings back memories!

The GameCube games we still love, 20 years later
Nintendo GameCube was released in Japan 20 years ago today.

I’ve been struggling the whole day about how to respond to this.

My first reaction was disgust, as the thing going on with Uyghurs in China pretty much looks like a genocide, regardless of semantics. “If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it is a duck”.

When it comes to discussion about the subject, I however have to agree with

To be clear: Allowing discussions around whether abuses occur is notably different to letting people get away with advocating for abuses. The latter is what needs strong responses. The former is what requires engagement.

No promotion of oppression or bigotry has in this case happened. I’d rather allow people have these discussions as long as they can behave like in a furnished space.

I’m fine with the developers’ political views, as the Lemmy software is more important.

Of course Lemmy has now a certain kind of PR problem as this FediTips fella is making big accusations and wanting people to stop using Lemmy altogether.

Charisma on Command’s analysis about why Zucc gives so robotic and creepy impression is worth watching.
