Wonderful to see good movements forward in the spec!

This is not an official Rust site, as far as I’m aware. Still neat though!

On Android 12, just updated from F-Droid and all is working well.
Maybe it is the Material You thing? It was introduced with Android 12 so I wonder if there’s some config needed for proper back porting?

Curious to know why you picked for those subdomains instead of the “project official” :)

Kinda late to this, but yeah I use one very simple and undistracting background I found on dark hexes

It is a way to make some income out of an open-source project. If you want the convenience of their managed server, then you have to pay to access limitless orgs (the way to share secrets), otherwise you’re limited to just a 2-person org. The family pack is quite accessible imo, at $40/y for a 6-person org.
Your other solution is, like I mentioned before, host your own server. vaultwarden supports orgs, like you can see in their feature list:

BitWarden is really great and a good example of a successful FLOSS project. I get the overall “companies just want to screw you up”, but one must not get completely blinded by it ;)

BitWarden,¹ it just works really really well everywhere. The app is pretty much the same on every platform (which is a good thing imo) and you also have a CLI in case you prefer (may also be useful in some sort of backup script, I suppose). I personally use the cloud service they provide, but you could very easily and cheaply get a vaultwarden² server up and running and be the total master of your passwords, using a $2.5/m VPS or something like that.


Edit: links
Edit: also, the premium Bitwarden plan doesn’t mean that at all, imo. The plan can be very useful if you really need those features (sidenote: I advise ever using the TOTP thing, that’s just putting all your eggs into one basket and defeating the purpose of 2FA), it’s very cheap ($10/y iirc) and you can always export all your data with the CLI, setup a server and import that data.

Yeah, onboarding is definitely a big problem with PeerTube and many other fediverse software.

You have PeerTube, which is the server and client software that allows you to upload, manage and view vídeos, à la YouTube, but whereas “traditional” platforms have just one big instance, the Fediverse platforms have multiple smaller instances that interconnect. You have your generic instances, but you also have more focused ones (specific topics like art, tech, or even for generic content related to a specific country/language). Unfortunately, the PeerTube network isn’t very rich and diverse yet, so restricting your search to very specific things may lead you no instances at all.

Hope this info helps! :3

PeerTube is recommended a lot in open-source circles. It is a video streaming platform that supports peer-to-peer distribution of content and is part of the (APub) Fediverse. The experience is very hit-or-miss though, and highly depends on which instance you pick. Running it yourself is not as trivial as running, say, Lemmy, so it’s not for everybody.

ridiculous compliated

It is as complicated to register on another instance as it is to register on Furthermore, as another commenter pointed out, there’s no official instance for Lemmy, as the devs believe that hurts the whole points of federation (and I agree). They do, however, run an instance tuned to their preference, and since it was the first one, it attracted the most users.

I’m running my own instance and it is very easy and nice to use :)

Ireland is a western country, just not very anglophone (though it is more so than most other Europen countries, for example).
Like others have pointed out, if you read and write in English on the Internet, you’re most likely visiting anglophone platforms, thus it is natural to never get to know, let’s say, the Portuguese Internet “culture”, with all its popular websites and quirks. I’d say every country/language has something like this, with varying degrees of richness and popularity of course.
It is true, however, that the USA’s influence on the western Internet “space” is way more significant than any other country’s, which can be attributed to a myriad of reasons, like how they had a big role in its inception and how their economy has evolved to flourish the tech industry.

Exactly what I was going to point out. You might not mind your own smell, but other certainly will, and deodorant can be a good way to mitigate that problem.

Couldn’t agree more. The whole tone of this piece is rather depreciative, and the author steps over multiple key points. Not a good post, imo.

Great answer. Context, tonality and people’s mood/feelings vary wildly and are fundamental aspects of how someone will take such a thing.
Your last point is key - when unsure (e.g. not talking to a close friend), choose the most polite words.

That’s very nice of you, thanks! :3

ahah, thanks! I’m curious why you picked me though, I barely post, mainly just read/lurk 🙃

"Tabacaria"1 by Álvaro de Campos (a Fernando Pessoa heteronym). Here’s an English translation.

It’s regarded by many as one of the best poems by him, and it is also a favourite of mine. The original version conveys so much in a brilliant flow of words, which, unfortunately, gets a somewhat lost with translations.

1 From the “official” archive.

Edit: links

That isn’t true. BitWarden is a very good password manager. Great apps on all platforms (even terminal) with perfect sync.

I’d you don’t trust the main server, then you can run the official server, or the lighter and community recommended vaultwarden server. It’s tiny, easy to deploy and effective.

Edit: links

Exactly. If it isn’t related I don’t think it makes any sense.

I mean, MTP is kinda slow cus of the lack of multiplexing, but yeah, it can definitely be faster than network protocols

Was about to comment this. Simple and straightforward, no real need to use more complex over-the-network stuff if you’re just sporadically sending some files from one device to the other.

Magicwormhole is really great

Yeah, same. I even run, but I mostly read. I’ve been trying to correct that, though.

I don’t remember exactly. But i like to search for “alternatives to x” in my search for free software because it leads to that website “” which has a filter for “opensource” which usually means free software for them, so my guess is one day i decided to search for alternatives to reddit that way and i was so excited about it that i made a lemmy account soon after

This was pretty much my experience, though I also don’t recall it exactly.

I remember making my account, checking a couple of things and then forgetting about it for some months, then I searched for alternatives again (I do this from time to time to see how the “ecosystem” is evolving) and it rekindled my activity. Soon enough I started contributing to the project with translations, suggestions and even a bit of code :)

That’s a lot of improvements!
Thank you a lot and congratulations on yet another great release! Will be updating my instance very soon ;)

That’s very good already! Now that bans federate properly, things are a bit easier. I recommend you put a big notice letting people know of the report feature, so that you quickly get notified of abuses. You should also join the “Lemmy Instance Admin Chat” room (listed on the space I believe) to share info with other admins :D

Good luck with your instance and thank you for adding another node to the network!

Yea please. Having that filter will also help you get into other instances’ allowlists ;) lemme know if you enable it so I can add you to my allowlist

Eu sei que o /r/place é do Reddit, mas a ideia é engraçada e o trabalho que o pessoal do /r/portugal fez no nosso cantinho está bem porreiro, portanto aqui vai uma imagem de como está agora: ![](

For sure, eggs are king. Definitely the hardest part of a vegan diet, cus they are so versatile!

I fully agree. This has been one of my pain points with the UI, not being a user of (the de facto instance). Unfortunately, I haven’t had the time to formulate a report and suggestion on this, but it would likely be better to just kickstart the discussion already.

Encontrei esta ferramenta do Observador, que achei bastante boa. Essencialmente, este site permite perceber que partidos mais se adequam às ideias de cada um, sendo feita uma avaliação através de uma série de questões relevantes à situação atual. As respostas são do tipo "concordo totalmente/concordo/neutro/discordo/discordo totalmente" (e "não tenho opinião"), sendo, também, possível ajustar a importância de cada questão. No fim, é exibida a lista dos partidos, ordenada por "concordância", e pode ver-se as respostas de cada um dos partidos às várias questões colocadas, bem como citações, e respetivas ligações, das fontes que justificam essas respostas. Naturalmente, não deve ser usada como única fonte de informação para o voto, mas é algo útil que pode ajudar a ter uma melhor noção das opções que existem.

Vim and neovim have mouse support as well. Micro has less plugins and is overall less configurable than (neo)vim. The style sure is different, but in terms of features, vim outclasses micro atm.

Feliz Ano Novo
Boas! Cá estou eu novamente com uma publicação, desta vez para vos desejar um ótimo 2022! :D Cumps

Felix Natal! :3
Boas pessoal! Pequena pub para vos desejar um feliz Natal repleto de tudo de bom, junto de que mais gostam! Abraço :)

yeah. Fennec on F-Droid also has about:config enabled, which is really nice

FIrefox mobile really needs to up its game… The refresh was a nice idea, but it feels like they just left it half-way :/

Huge congratulations for all the hard work! <3
Lemmy is going on a very nice path, thank you!

I hope to continue working on remmy now that this refactor is done hehe

I still use manager BitWarden (the overall project is really great) but I might consider switching my server to a self-hosted vaultwarden one.

Só uma pequena publicação para lembrar todos que votar é um direito e um **dever** cívico. Se estão contentes com os governantes da vossa localidade, tornem a votar neles. Se não, votem em quem mais acreditarem para progredir. Caso não achem mesmo que nenhum candidato se adequa, votem em branco. Pode não parecer, mas o voto em branco é diferente da abstenção. Votar em branco é um claro sinal de que não se está contente com nenhuma das opções, enquanto que a abstenção mostra indiferença para com o ato eleitoral. Estas eleições afetam diretamente as vossas localidades e têm influência nas eleições legislativas. **_Votem!_**

Lemmy Portugal 🇵🇹 - A new public instance dedicated to Portugal and the Portuguese Language
Hallo! Making this announcement post here to let more people know that the instance is now opened! I had held back from making this post due to not having written some rules yet, but now that's in place. They still need some touch ups, and a more extensive Code of Conduct document has yet to be written, however, I'd like to get more people on board to get more feedback. So, what is this instance about? Anything related to Portugal, Portuguese, or any related community. We have some communities already set up, but anyone is free to create their own space :D Naturally, posts should be in Portuguese, and on-topic, but English posts are also welcome if they come from people wanting to learn about the community, culture, language and so on. I hope to help the Lemmy network by adding this new instance :3 Cheers!
