I'm looking for an invitation to Lobsters (lobste.rs). Would really appreciate it if anyone can share.

Is there no way to index discord chats? Is Matrix a viable discord alternative?

I was going through this wonderful thread lemmy.ml/post/4540882 and found many of you talking about discord as it’s a crime against knowledge for not allowing indexing on it. I think we are talking about indexing by search engines like DDG and Google here and I know that discord questions don’t show up in search results and...

Can you talk a bit more about the CPU benchmarking? What sites do you usually refer to? Is score the best metric or do you look for something else as well?

Be cautious with how much data they collect and the security implications of giving access to these services.

Here's a thread on Beeper.

Though not particularly a logging solution, lazydocker has made docker administration a lot easier for me.

I love outline as much as the next guy, but calling it simple to selfhost is a bit of a stretch. It has lots of moving parts and not having an auth solution built-in makes it not suitable for the average user.

That said, it does beat other wiki solutions by a wide margin!

If you don't want to manually define a particular point threshold, https://hnrss.org/best works pretty great.

Just wondering if there's something similar for Lobster.

I'll play the devil's advocate here.

Since bitwarden is a VC funded company, I'm wary of the enshittification that might take place in the future. Even though technically speaking, you can self-host the server via Vaultwarden, it is largely possible because the project has blessing of official devs. That can change dramatically in future.

For something as important as your passwords, trusting a for-profit company might not be the best idea.

Would love to know what the community thinks about this.

DISCLAIMER: I love Bitwarden and use it daily, both for personal use and at work.

Everything except https and wireguard went above my head. Do you have some sort of guide/writeup that you can point to for integrating all this?

Thanks. Daily user of omnivore here.

However, they're not really a replacement for Readwise (especially the way they re-surface highlights), more like a replacement for pocket/wallabag.

Recommend me a good and cheap VPS.

I currently use a Droplet from DigitalOcean which gives me 1 gb of RAM, 25 gb of storage and a bandwidth limit of 1 TB which is priced at 6 dollars per month, I think this might be a good offer, but I also think I’m overpaying because the only thing that I use from that is Wireguard to get around CGNAT at my home (which I...

Thanks for the recommendation. Their offerings look pretty affordable.

Came across Bookwyrm which is the feediverse alternative to Goodreads. I've been searching for a proper Goodreads replacement for so long, and this finally looks like the real deal.

Looking for a bluesky invite if anyone has it.

I have been using Twitter primarily for interesting technology discussions, and lately realized that lot of people in my following list have shifted platforms. Some have landed on Substack while others Bluesky. Would love to see the lay of the land there.

Hate discord with a passion. I don't know why all the "new-age" open-source projects are also moving to Discord as their primary forum. The search is abysmal, there's no way to go back to previous postings in a sane manner.

I reluctantly use discord because some of my favorite application developers use that (Immich, Omnivore, Logseq) but it's just a massive pain in the ass and every time I spend even 10 minutes there, it feels like I've spent hours looking into the dark mayhem, searching for a needle in the haystack.

Oh, that's neat one. Do you keep the VM running always to make the backups work?

I've been using Omnivore for the past few months and really like it so far. A great wallabag replacement, although it still can't be easily selfhosted and there are a few components which rely on Google Cloud Functions to work. Would love to see if someone manages to selfhost it successfully.

ZenArtist,

AFAIK, it can be selfhosted with a few of the features (like newsletter processing, which requires Google Cloud Functions) disabled. Nobody has made a full-fledged guide for selhosting though. A couple of people in discord were successful in self-hosting it.

I use espial, an open-source clone of Pinboard. I had fallen in love with the simple yet powerful design of Pinboard and wanted an open-source version of it which I could selfhost. Using espial for the past 2 years and it's been amazing. The tag cloud feature is pretty cool and you can add your own notes about the links that you've saved.

First time "seriously" using the feediverse. After the twitter implosion, I tried out Mastodon for a few days, but alas, the network effect and switching costs were too real for me. My twitter was tech and startup heavy and even though you might expect the people there to be much more savvy and inclined to use the feediverse, I was surprised to see the reality. Very few people actually jumped the ship and consequently I had to remain on Twitter to gain value.

Now that it's reddit's turn to implode, I'm much more hopeful of people settling on some other service (which is not centralized). Came across kbin from a post on reddit, liked the philosophy and the vibe of the place and here I am, posting from one of the kbin instances. I'm looking forward to setup my own instance soon!

Thank you so much for your support! 😍

I just saw an email from Buy Me a Coffee. Not just one. I went in, and I'm truly shocked. Thank you all for the support; I would like to thank each and every one of you individually someday. Honestly, I don't know what to say. The account balance is $350, which will definitely allow me to develop kbin faster or at least not...

Solid advice! I'd also like to chime in and recommend that apart from keeping the official server alive so that new users can come in, please prioritize on making it easier for other developers to start contributing to the codebase and setting up new instances.

I love the way people are supporting you and the way this project has been shaping up. Best wishes!
