It is somewhat ironic and quite sad that the internet that started as a distributed technology resilient enough to withstand nuclear attacks, has ‘evolved’ over the years to be a highly fragile, highly centralized infrastructure that can’t handle a server configuration change. twitter.com/digg/status/113711

Jemand hat auf Google Maps für den Globuli-Hersteller Hevert die Kategorieänderung in "Süßwarengroßhändler" vorgeschlagen. Google hat sie aktuell durchgeführt. 😂

#xkcd #gammaTest Chernobyl - You know when you can't hear your speakers, and you keep turning various volume controls up higher and higher in confusion, and then someone hits the mute button and there's a deafening blast of sound? That's basically what happened at Chernobyl. - Fri, 14 Jun 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - xkcd.com/2163/ #poweredByAwk

the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

@Gargron reminds me of tengger cavalry which do mongolian folk metal as well (but sound more metal-like)

Noticed that as well. I think a fresh install wouldn't help here either. It is a lot faster in qemu+kvm though.

You get annoyed by having to enter your #Mastodon handle each time you want to follow/interact with someone on a "foreign" page?

I got that too, but I've made a little add-on to solve this "problem". 😃

It automatically "redirects" you to your own instance.

You probably hate systemd because you think it's all about "boot fast no bash" - but it can do so much more you probably had no idea about. reddit.com/r/linux/comments/bs

@clerie das ist die section, also quasi in welche kategorie eine manpage gehört. ist vor allem dann interessant, wenn es mehrere gleichnamige manpages gibt, um die auseinander zu halten.

Heads up for 5.1 kernel users that use LVM and/or encrypted filesystems. Trimming filesystem can cause serious data damage!

On Arch it's presumably patched in newest kernel but upstream kernel is still affected.

A dragon landed outside the village. "Feed me," it demanded.
The elders conferred, then one stepped up. "What do you wish to eat?"
"Eh? Nobody has ever asked... What is there, apart from what every village feeds me?"
"Er... We have potatoes?"
"Then feed me these 'potatoes'!"
