I think there will be a certain turning point reached somewhat soon(ish), in which we either have to decide to lock more and more people out or become another reddit.

With increasing popularity other players will also become more and more encouraged to enter the game. And this always leads to rotting of the community as a whole.

But that aside, I enjoy all of the thoughtful and nice replies we currently have.


So this is totally boosting my “Convert everyone to XMPP” project …


I host mine on a VPS, I love having endless aliases to use.


I’m sorry but I’m skeptical that all things which look “weird” and “buggy” to us are actually inherently bad. There always is a reason for everything. We just don’t know it yet.


Or maybe one day we will understand why we have hiccups and find out that it’s important.


I think you’re missing the point here.

This proves that companies who are in control want this.

I’ve concluded that maybe this wont be a big deal for them but it may be a big deal for smaller players and/or startups.

So in the long run I think this benefits the big companies, which is why we dont see much defense.


Feels like they’re on fire lately with their issues.


Wow, this sucks!

I hate when people use good faith projects and do bad stuff with them.

Also quite surprised on how bad the current hosting provider handled the situation.

It just looks like “I dont care what reputation I’ll get, as long as I have fixed the issue that was put onto me”.

No worries,- lemmy is just in its beginnings and I already like it better than reddit (ok, thats not too hard, to be fair).




Not sure if you’re kidding, but that was a really terrible idea.


Yes, and no.

Imagine subscribing to an RSS feed for something like password reset, order confirmation etc.

But for marketing stuff: Totally.



That depends on the platform, which libc implementation, the image itself and date of it.

Maybe be a bit more specific? Also why does it matter?


These comparisons are useless. If there is no standard what we’re calculating it doesn’t matter what results we receive.


That’s exactly my point. There should be a system that only allows one user/party to compute once, no matter how many instances of miners they spawn, no matter if on one computer or one hundred.


I’ve said it before on https://lemmy.ml/post/61812:

I can only agree here. The problem with the current implementation is that they encourage hacks, exploits and all that stuff.

This can only be combated with another approach imo: Mining is not resource but time intensive. As in: No matter how many resources you throw at it, it doesn’t matter whether you run the “miner” on one or 200 computers, it will still generate the same sum.

On how to exactly implement this would be open to discussion, but it at least combats the current issues cryptocurrencies cause to the whole industry at large.

IIRC the original programmer left and due to some internal restructuring they lost the source. The funny thing is I can’t seem to find the article anymore, but I’ll keep looking.


Yes, Windows has parts nobody knows how they work, they even admitted some original source code was lost and so they only have the compiled program and/or interface, but no documentation on how it works.


It achieves this by running an unmodified 32-bit version of Wine, and emulating the Linux kernel and CPU. It is written in C++ with SDL and is supported on multiple platforms. …
