alienBlues,

Suspension and account closing are two different things.

alienBlues,

Sometimes, the World is a better place with just a laugh and a meme :)

alienBlues,

Worse! I asked if feasible to move back from the expert mode panel to the smart mode one! And also if they knew why I was stuck to zero impressions on my ads.

Jokes aside, I believe it was their version of “Let’s turn the PC off and on again” for the panel’s mode issue. If you’re curious, it didn’t solve it.

alienBlues,

Isn’t it dns.adguard-dns.com?

alienBlues,

It looks to me that’s the one in the guide on the official website of AdGuard DNS.

alienBlues,

Many years ago, I used to work in infosec. One of my employer’s clients was a big and famous brand well-established in the luxury sector. One day, a colleague of mine was sent to test their POS. Inside one, he found a single transaction for around 6M € from a credit card swipe. It wasn’t a payment made from a bank transfer or a check, just a single credit card swipe! At the time, I couldn’t even dream a card with such a credit allowance would exist. I had a pretty good living then, with money for the rent, daily expenses, and even some savings. Still, for an instant, I remember feeling like a poor child living in a house made of mud.

alienBlues,

I agree. Seeing stuff like that and how, more often than not, the clients treated their employees and consultants was just bad for the soul. In such contexts, you understand why workers aren’t called people but “resources.” In the end, I got burned out and quit the job.

alienBlues,

Each time I tried to switch to an IDE, I returned to Vim after a few days. Nothing compares to it, and vim-modes always seem nerfed to me. RIP

The time to streamline Lemmy onboaring is now. Let's do it like mastodon did. (blog.joinmastodon.org)

I've seen lots of discussion on reddit of users trying to get others to join Lemmy and the prevailing reply is that it is too difficult to navigate and comprehend. Having to answer multiple questions and wait for manual verification is combersome and is limiting growth at a time when nothing should be standing in Lemmy's way....

alienBlues,

I'm a new user, so my opinion counts as such. My first concern upon signing up was understanding which communities I was allowed to see from which instance. Maybe a page where people can search by communities first and then show them where they are hosted/federated could solve this issue. Also, improving federations between servers could ease the signup process too. If any server allows communities from most other servers to be viewed, choosing what instance to join will be more a matter of personal beliefs and tastes than else.

I'm afraid that setting a default instance could cause it to experience explosive growth and monopolization of the communities. As someone pointed out in a comment in another post, while users on Lemmy are growing, donations are not, so the bill for a single instance with all the people on it will probably be huge. Also, if all the largest communities are going to be on a single instance, how difficult will be to create new original ones to bring some people to the small servers?

Captchas are bad for privacy. They allow the provider to track users between websites, and they are also bad for people because they are generally hard to solve for people with impairments. Also, automated solutions to bypass captchas exist on the market.

Also, I believe a network with high-quality content is better than a bigger generalist one. A little barrier of entry and manual screening of people may serve well for this purpose, so I'm favorable to keeping it.

help me choose my next distro

I'm resetting windows 10 on my Thinkpad T580 for work but would like to create a partition for linux. It's an older laptop and really chugs through games like Minecraft or RuneScape but I enjoy playing relaxing games while I listen to audiobooks at night. I grew up using windows which is why I've mostly used Ubuntu and ZorinOS...

alienBlues,

I'm using Linux Mint with the Cinnamon desktop on a Thinkpad older than yours, and everything works fine for me. I've seen somebody saying that the Xfce edition is slow for them, but maybe the MATE one is lightweight enough for you.

alienBlues,

Here since yesterday, but I like everything I've seen. The communities are welcoming, and users' profiles lack the useless vanity metrics but allow enough customization to feel personal. Jerboa works well on Android, and everything looks well thought out generally. I hope Lemmy is going up to a great future!
