Are you referring to old posts not matching? Federation of a community only starts after someone from your instance subscribed to the remote community in question.

Also, why post a question about Lemmy federation in the XMPP community?

This incident wasn’t a terrorist attack though, but rather a single individual with apparent mental health issues. Such attacks happen all the time, and this one only made the news because a person was killed and the attacker was of a certain ethic background.

Furthermore 208 attacks in a span of 18 years is laughably low, especially when compared to the thousands of right-wing attacks that happened during the same time.

No one in their right mind goes out and stabs their flatmate and a random 70 year old passerby, not even a wanna be terrorist. The deeply racist UK juridical system is not a good reference for deciding this.

And I am not here to do research for you, but if you spend even 5 minutes googling you will easily find that right-wing politically movitated violent crime easily dwarfs those figures (despite systematic under reporting of those by the police).

And while you are at it, look up domestic violence figures which are also orders of magnitude higher, even if you just count the ones with deaths or serious injuries.

Maybe speak to a union representative? I mean, aside from the ICE or electric question, the plan to move to privately owned cars is clearly an effort to push hidden costs onto their employees and the union might be interested in preventing that. And once that option is off the table, an electric fleet might become the next best option.

How do you envision Solarpunk Music?

Am curious if Solarpunk music is a thing or not yet? If it is please do share some links to tracks to check out, am very cruious. If it isnt a thing yet, what type of music do you imagined it would be like? I found this on the Tubes, which is very relaxing, ambiance type of music. This is personally the type of music I have in...

Has some of what some people here think at least could qualify as Solarpunk music.

Its kinda cool how by making it mono-rail, they can use a single track rail to have pods moving in both directions, and the rail could still be used during the night for regular cargo trains.

poVoq,
@poVoq@slrpnk.net avatar

Good questions. I guess given how lightweight these pods look there could be probably some sort of lifting device at some of the stations to move the pods between the two rails.

poVoq,
@poVoq@slrpnk.net avatar

Not if it is strictly time separated. Like I wrote, I could see these pods operate exclusively during the day and regular/cargo trains operate exclusively during the night. Or any other such time based system.

poVoq,
@poVoq@slrpnk.net avatar

No, these pods on existing rails are potentially a TON cheaper. Even if you don’t count the cost of maintaining the road (which is significantly more than maintaining rail tracks), the need for paying a driver makes most small shuttle bus services prohibitively expensive.

At 3am? Come on. And that’s also true for all public transport.

@poVoq@slrpnk.net avatar

Just dealing with with land rights for the extra space the second track would need is a nightmare. And the very idea of these is to use existing tracks without getting into new track construction.

poVoq,
@poVoq@slrpnk.net avatar

The tracks are also already there, and gyroscope stabilized monorail is a 100+ year old technology, not much new to develop about it other than using modern battery technology and some basic self-driving features for it.

I happen to know the approximate area where this is being trialed, and a bike (even an electric one) is really only an alternative for hard-core all-weather bikers that have no problem driving 60+ kilometres a day.

The distances are just too far, the weather too bad 80% of the year, and the shrinking, elderly population too low density for other means of public transport to work economically.

The options are really either cars, such kind of novel ideas, or abandoning these tiny villages all together.

There are some local classified websites where you can post stuff for free and there are also multiple nearby thrift stores for second hand stuff that will sell things very cheaply for you if you waive your own part of the price.

Tumbleweed update killed my gaming

Has anyone else had this problem? I updated my openSuse Tumbleweed today (restart required), and now none of my games work. Most are through Steam, so at first I thought it was that. But I have Cyberpunk through GOG launched with Heroic. And even more, Alien Arena has the same problem, so it’s not even a proton issue (I did...

If you are on Nvidia, try reinstalling the binary drivers. On kernel updates the akmod stuff sometimes needs to be recompiled.

What a dumb comment. Scotland is an oil and gas exporter themselves. If anything you could blame them for being in the pockets of their own local fossil fuel industry.

Server as heating device - how do I do this?

So I have this silly idea/longterm project of wanting to run a server on renewables on my farm. And I would like to reuse the heat generated by the server, for example to heat a grow room, or simply my house. How much heat does a server produce, and where would you consider it best applied? Has anyone built such a thing?

poVoq,
@poVoq@slrpnk.net avatar

Well, that was my plan when I set things up with an air-to-hot-water heatpump in the same room as my homelab. But the reality is that when it is hot outside, I don’t need to run the heatpump (mainly because the solar-thermal water heater is so much more effective). And otherwise the there is no need for cooling in that room.

@poVoq@slrpnk.net avatar

You could probably mod a water cooler system to connect to a water to water heat exchanger like this: www.heata.co

In general, like others have said, lots of humidity is bad for the hardware, you will need to separate this somehow. But heating a small grow-room with an extension of a CPU water cooler might be possible.

Alienation from other people and thinking they are not worth the bother is a relatively sure sign of depression.

I am not saying its only a you problem, and people around you are probably depressed as well, but I think it’s worth viewing your interactions with other people through that self-reflective lense some time.
