Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

This is your daily reminder that advocating for the government to censor/ban now that is in charge of it will do nothing but set a precedent that will be used against you when your opponents get elected

I will repeat this as often as I have to: When you create a seat of power, anyone can sit in it. Even the people who want to oppress you. The granting of unaccountable power is an evil no matter who you give those positions to or what they claim they will use it for

Oh and of course, when you are annoyed, bored or triggered by some words, users or entire instances, don't hesitate to filter them out :)

It helps to keep your social media experience healthy.

@groovestomp don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure I heard it was due to flatpaks being more up to date, and easier to keep up to date. They had a thing not too long back where debians Firefox was so behind that it was causing issues.

The latest issue of Tales From The Dork Web is now available at thedorkweb.substack.com/p/esca covering public/private online spaces, how we design hellscapes, how non-commercial platforms inherit design features and a bit of thinking fast and slow.

@finlaydag33k with a spare floating hand? Your standards are too high.

@selea I've been playing that! It's been a blast, except I cannot finish dungeons, they keep breaking on the last floor.

@selea @nextcloud oh, I guess you're right! I just use the WebDAV interface on Linux, it works pretty well. Certainly better than the vfs on windows at least.

@selea @nextcloud it works somewhat on windows already. I have almost 1tb of data on my nextcloud and the windows client crashes a LOT with the virtual drive enabled. Not even suggested on Linux though.

@groovestomp Mine too! It was fun until I'd clocked more hours in pokemon sword in a week than I have in any other game ever...

New Amazon pandemic policy (apparently):

Scavenger hunt included with every order! The driver drops the package somewhere in your neighborhood and sends you a photo. A fun game for the entire family!

@selea one of my coworkers used to make that, but hers was so good. Tried it later from some store brand and was so confused at how nasty it was.

Trying to figure out single gpu passthrough with the 6800xt on arch. Its not going well. Just a black screen forever.
