Getting root access to fix a doorbell

The article does more than get root access. I like how the author bought a copy of the doorbell to work on…



How biotechnology will change our future from Dr. Robert's blog

Pretty neat to think how 3D printed organs are just around the corner…


From my understanding it is hardcoded into the source code. Not sure how hard it would be to remove if you ran the site yourself.


My family would disown me if I did not donate most of that 3 million salary. So I think we have very different morals in our families. A lot of human civilization’s problems would be solved if humanity did not horde wealth and resources for personal gain.


Isn’t that the point though? Why would you want someone willing to work for another corp. It means they are no better than any other CEO.



Neat little search engine that lets you add sites to the list of websites it crawls

I like using this search engine, not because it gives a lot of results, but because it is good for finding indepent sites that are normally buried on the >1 pages of search engines. …


I don’t see how that is challenging for users unless they are so lazy that they won’t even change any setting on their device regardless of how annoyed they are. If the app has a directory of instances with their bios linked it can make it easier for them.


Why would it always be better in terms of UX? Nothing is stopping a decentralized system from having good intuitive UIs.


Why is “User password has no character limit, someone pasted the entire content of Pan Tadeusz (Master Thaddeus) polish poem as a password” a bad thing? I make the most out of super long character passwords and create ssh key level entropy with it lol.


Well that is a totally fair complaint about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. My only interest in them is how our far future societies would probably use something like cryptocurrency.


Fediverse has a bonus in that you know you are in a bubble. Where social media giants make bubbles for you silently with their Ais.


Its great to have you here. I hope you enjoy your time on Lemmy!


What I get from that article is that we should all be using SSH keys with strong encryption.






It really pisses me off too. If the software is just going to sit there without any caretaking at least open source it with a permissive license. It does the dev no good anymore.


https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/ Find your game. When there are saves people have uploaded you will be able to click on a saves tab and download them.



So true. These megacorps would not be where they are if engineering people did not want to work for them. And mainly because of propaganda/ridiculous salaries.

Go to a company that might end up like the megacorps in the future at the very least.



How do I mute certain instances and/or communities from my feed when viewing All?

Like the title says. How would I mute some instances from appearing in my feed when looking at All. Same goes for communities too. I don’t want to completely block the instance such that I cannot see people who post from them…




How do you find blogs you are interested in?

I mainly just start following blogs I think are cool that are linked on social media. …




What is the best open source Quake inspired game?

I personally really like Open Arena but Xonotic is good too. …


Borg+Vorta as an automatic backup solution for linux

Have not tried the solution myself yet. But it does look promising and worth a look imo…



Does a federated site allow you to subscribe to instances?

I like how Mastadon has a local and a federated timeline for example. I would also like a way to subscribe to instances so that I can make my own federated timeline…



What is a good open source call blocking app for Android?

I am looking for something that blocks all incoming calls from numbers not in my contacts list. I would prefer if the app did not use a database of numbers and instead just allowed numbers on my contact list and nothing else…


Are dms e2e encrypted between recipients?

Just curious if that is the case. I assume not as Lemmy does not advertise it’s encryption at all. …



Will dev.lemmy.ml get federated in the future?

I know there are other instances (I think that is what the test Lemmy’s are) that are experimenting with federation. Will this instance get federated down the line?..
