I was not a big fan until season 4 which I loved for it’s slower pacing and overall themes, but I’m enjoying this one a lot for totally different reasons, like the ones you mentioned. Disco’s cast really lends itself to “fun”, on the rare times it attempts it.

Ash Tyler would have been pretty special.

Funny way of spelling Voq!

Especially because of the Book scene!

People are actually on BlueSky

There's now a decent measurement of user numbers (https://bskycharts.edavis.dev/edavis.dev/bskycharts.edavis.dev/bsky_users_total.html) ...

They've got about 1.6M MAUs ...
& 0.8M Weekly unique users & 0.340M Daily.

That's not nothing!

Roughly double mastodon and 60% more than the whole fediverse (by MAUs, see fedidb.org).

Bluesky is quite "international" with large Japanese and Brazilian popltns, and there's real attrition happening IMO.

Still, let the protocol wars begin I suppose?

LOL this is the answer. For better or worse, the Fediverse has a large established culture. I would not fault someone for trying out every possible alternative first.

Do you have any links? I was unable to find any. Also if you don’t mind, what is the benefit to running one’s own BlueSky instance when instance owners don’t control the moderation?

Corgana,
@Corgana@startrek.website avatar

Some people don’t like ActivityPub because it allows mods/admins to remove their content. If you are the sort of person who believes that a moderator moderating content is “censorship” then the AT protocol is a lot more appealing.

Corgana,

I meant links to instances not owned by the main company. Are there any?

Corgana,

These posts are the Fediverse’s killer app, imo.

Culber is reminding anyone in the audience who may have forgotten that despite being human, Burnham was raised on Vulcan

Y’know, I was wondering if this central aspect to her entire character would ever come up again.

Corgana,
@Corgana@startrek.website avatar

I would be surprised if this ever sees a physical release, or even gets past the “concept render” phase.

You can’t restore a backed-up config in docker, also no add-ons.

Corgana,
@Corgana@startrek.website avatar

Add-ons” is a separate category of thing, and more substantial than integrations/Lovelace stuff. If you haven’t noticed any missing you’re probably fine. But some popular ones are DuckDNS and Mosquitto Broker.

They generate a LOT of noise. Not a dealbreaker for most but something to be aware of for sure.

Corgana,
@Corgana@startrek.website avatar

They are very noisy. Lots of clicking and whirring. Enterprise drives are not the same as consumer drives. As others have said this is a great price but I would not recommend using them in a room you are trying to focus in.

Me too weirdly. I have watched the Kelvinverse movies all exactly once, but this doesn’t sound so bad.

…Maybe a little Bakula

"Star Trek: Scotty played by Scottish actor for first time"

Nice interview, very very light spoiler stuff if you're trying to go into next season stone cold unknowing.

Where are the people complaining that he was only cast because of his race?

Corgana,
@Corgana@startrek.website avatar

Yeah, it’s easy to see, but I don’t have to respect it.

Corgana,
@Corgana@startrek.website avatar

I liked how at the end Culber was shaken by the whole “being a host to another consciousness” experience and needed a minute to process it. Every time someone goes through a life-changing thing in Star Trek they’re right as rain by the end of the episode. Like when Sisko hosted Joran Dax (the murder-ey one) he kept the feelings buried inside. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that some time later he poisoned the atmosphere of Solosos III because of something Eddington said about him on the internet.

Conveniently sidestepping the question of sleep…

Corgana,
@Corgana@startrek.website avatar

I’m curious, is there actually so many 42’s in the system?

Sort of, it’s not actually picking a random number. It does not know what “random” means. It is analyzing the number of times the question “pick a random number” was asked and what the most common responses to that question looked like.

HOW DID THE TRUCK GET INTO SPACE??

Love that episode though.
