Good observation. And not only Discord, but YouTube, Reddit Github and Twitter. Looking at their website design (and the name of the app, removing the word master became a thing with some open source projects, though not all) and this article https://safing.io/blog/2023/02/07/snowden-changed-everything this gives me mixed feelings. There is OpenSnitch to back though, which has landed in Debian Sid, and is available for Arch Linux : https://github.com/evilsocket/opensnitch
I actually liked the actions about the museum pictures, making the main headlines and with that perhaps waking up more people.
A comment I read today, somewhat related : https://mastodon.social/@austinkocher/109800607880492343
Don’t know of an easy solution but there is a Lemmy instance focused on Africa : https://baraza.africa And maybe Mastodon, besides using Lemmy, can be interesting for some news as well now that Mastodon (since a little while) supports following hashtags. https://fedi.tips/how-to-use-mastodon-and-the-fediverse-advanced-tips/ Explained in the Following hashtags paragraph.
Thanks for sharing, also @XpeeN@sopuli.xyz
I like to use https://yewtu.be as landing page, because it has been around for long with no down time and it has an easy name to remember.
Have a look at the word pandemic on English Wikipedia, the paragraph about Current pandemics, and let’s ask ourselves why the continent of Africa is usually neglected in Western media ?
AIDS is currently a pandemic in Africa, with infection rates as high as 25% in some regions of southern and eastern Africa.
There were an estimated 1.5 million new infections of HIV/AIDS in 2020. As of 2020 there have been about a total of 32.7 million deaths related to HIV/AIDS since the epidemic started.
Looks nice. https://diff.blog/FAQ/

Does it have RSS feed so it can be read in a feed reader ?
I feel that bad faith arguments need to be called out on sight.
Well, I can tell that I am fan of Socrates in the sense that asking questions instead of making assumptions (which you did in your comment) gives flexibility and more direction towards a good and rather balanced conversation rather than monologue versus monologue (For the latter I’m thinking about politicians in some countries who seemed to be mainly interested in their own person and their own party, rather than other people).
If you were genuinely curious about a link between internet privacy and the pandemic, you would not ask the poster to waste everyone’s time specifying “which pandemic” we all know he was referring to.
Why the aggression and the assumption ? The question seemed sincere and harmless. There may have been more pandemics in other continents where we in the West almost never heard about.
Thanks for sharing the web links.
Trying to ping the user @firstname.lastname@example.org Please tell me if that worked. :)
Worked :) And let’s ping in the original question poster as well @Amicchan@lemmy.ml just in case.
Hypericum (St. John’s Wort) pills can be bought in some regular shops here in Europe. I have a tendency to use them in the Winter, but this time it didn’t go so well. I also have it as tea, maybe I’ll give that a try again when needed. Luckily I found other ways to feel better. Odd thing about the results for German speaking countries.
Trials from German-speaking countries reported more positive findings than trials from other countries (RR = 1.78; 95%CI 1.42 to 2.25 vs.1.07; 95% CI 0.88 to 1.31, respectively; see comparison 1.5 and Figure 2).
What do these numbers mean exactly ? Was it a huge difference or not so much ?
Interesting to see this good read from March 2017 now posted on Teddit (Reddit) about 9 hours ago : https://teddit.net/r/linux/comments/10bpvbh/what_it_feels_like_to_be_an_opensource_maintainer/ with useful comments.
Nice one, Lemmy! Is Lemmy gaining traction ?
Yes, sad. “power corrupts” applies. But I’d say usually it is good to not place your bet only on national politics. Watching the local community politics instead and do “direct action” or consumer behavior change (which may include for example small things like eating less meat, not buying from big brands which produce non sustainable products, or slightly adjusting some bus stop billboard ad) makes sense.
I think we are on the bring of a big collapse.
I think the collapse has been there for decades already. Maybe it was not so visible among humans but I imagine that animals and nature have felt it clearly already. Whether to blame the amount of pills made and given, is because of capitalism or neoliberalism I’m not sure. I have read Not Made of Wood: A Psychiatrist Discovers His Own Profession by Jan Foudraine, a book which became popular in the seventies and has helped to make mental help better than it was before, however lately the lack of time for patients, and the work pressure have made giving pills very popular. Not just doctors and psychiatrists give pills but also psychologists started to do so :( There is still hope, for example the resistance of Lützerath is Germany shows imo that not all of us have turned into mindless money greed capitalist robots.
The outrage was apparently about how Raspberry Pi replied to comments on Mastodon after their announcement. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/chrisstokelwalker/raspberry-pi-hired-ex-cop-mastodon-controversy @email@example.com
Thanks for sharing. Where can I read more on ActivityPub C2S ? https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/activitypub-client-to-server-faq/1941 gives me a blank page right now. Found something here : https://codeberg.org/postmodern/fediverse-importer/issues/3 and https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=31194422 but /me still pretty clueless about full possibilities of C2S.
EndeavourOS ARM also comes with new features
EndeavourOS Arm now supports Pinebook Pro. New linux-eos-arm kernel with amdgpu introduced for more generic Arm device support including pinebook pro. linux-eos-arm ships with amdgpu module prebuilt for supporting devices like Phytiuim D2000. Raspberry Pi Imager/dd compatible images available for download. Improves accessibility of arm i.e. users from any OS can flash eos-arm to their arm SBC Improved headless server script. Odroid N2+: vulkan-panfrost and vulkan-mesa-layers installed to reduce artifacts on plasma x11 sessions and improve overall graphics performance and stability.
From now on the Pinebook Pro is officially supported by us.
This app gets very good reviews for some phones. https://open-store.io/app/waydroidhelper.aaronhafer for example
Works flawlessly on Z2 Force, I’m very impressed, this app is going to be the sole reason I’m finally ready to make the switch to ubports as my DD, excellent work
Taken from a Wikipedia search for forge + software :
In FOSS development communities, a forge is a web-based collaborative software platform for both developing and sharing computer applications. The term forge refers to a common prefix or suffix adopted by various platforms created after the example of SourceForge. This usage of the word stems from the metalworking forge, used for shaping metal parts.
For software developers it is an online service to host the tools they need to communicate with their coworkers. The source code itself is stored in a revision control system and linked to a wide range of services such as a bug database, continuous integration, etc. When a FOSS development community forks, it duplicates the content of the forge and is then able to modify it without asking permission. A community may rely on services scattered on multiple forges: they are not necessarily hosted under the same domain. For instance it is not uncommon for discussions to be hosted on Discourse while the source code is hosted on Gitea.
For users, a forge is a repository of computer applications, a place where bugs can be reported, a channel to be informed of security issues, etc.
Software forges became popular in 2001, and have proven successful as a software development environment for millions of software projects.
