Ma il bello è il modo in cui l’ho scoperto: ho l’abitudine, quando scopro un’istanza di un visualizzatore alternativo (Invidious, Piped, ecc.) di andare a curiosare sul sito di chi lo mantiene per vedere quali altri “servizi” offre.


Force healing
I would like to share a thought (based on canonical information as much as possible) about healing by the Force seen in Ep9 and which has caused so much discussion. I have always thought of it as very simple: the ability to heal is achieved by mastering the Living Force (which is one of the two aspects of the Force, the other being the Cosmic Force) and learning to "channel" it. As I understand from the prequels, the study of the Cosmic Force was very prevalent, while the study of the Living Force was lapsed and followed by a minority current of Jedi (e.g., the very first dialogue between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan in Ep1). One aspect of mastering the Living force is maintaining one's self-awareness even after death (thus being able to manifest as a Force ghost), another may well be the ability to elicit healing from physical damage in living tissue. Anakin could not save his mother because, while potentially powerful, he knew nothing about it. Even Sidious did not know about it, which gives me pause as to how even the Sith as far as studying the Force were no better off than the Jedi, although then he must have learned something because in Ep9 he manages to absorb the Living Force from Ben and Rey to toughen his decaying body. While in the Ahch-To texts Rey found the ancient indications to that effect and learned it (and perhaps Plagueis similarly, or re-discovered it on his own). In Yoda's species this ability might be innate (Grogu heals Karga) but after a very long time spent considering almost only the Cosmic Force the master almost forgot it. Am I making it too simple? 🙃

Se può interessare, qualche tempo fa mi ero fatto questo schema prezzi per Ecloud, lo spazio offerto dalla società che sviluppa /e/, ora chiamata anche Murena.

Sarebbe curioso avere dei grafici tipo i miei (€ all’anno a dimensione e € al GB) per ogni fornitore.


Probably those episodes could be about the flashbacks we saw in the novel “Master and Apprentice”


Stavo per riportarti il sito SW libri e comics poi ho visto che ovviamente te l’avevano già consigliato 😉

La cosa che mi dispiace (e te lo dice uno che i fumetti canonici ce li ha TUTTI) è la distanza di uscite, dopo anni dall’inizio della serie ambientata tra Ep4 e Ep5 non mi ricordavo più una ceppa e allora ho aspettato l’ultimo albo per rileggere tutto dall’inizio alla fine uno dietro l’altro 🤣 Quasi idem per i romanzi.


Ungoogled Chromium su Linux (Ubuntu) installato da Flathub mi si aggiorna da ‘Software’. Su Windows la versione portable (presa sempre da Woolyss) ha un programmino accompagnatorio che ogni volta all’apertura controlla la presenza di nuova versione e se sì la scarica.


Nonetheless, many instances in my research aren’t listed in the source you linked 🤔


What annoyed me of LibRedirect was that it continued to open frontends even when I disabled some voices, and other “aggressive” malfunctions that I don’t remember now but occurred even if reinstalled. But probably now those problems have been fixed.


Good to know! I checked only their official Git repositories, and noticed that sometimes many instances were missing (e.g. https://git.sr.ht/~cadence/bibliogram-docs/tree/master/docs/Instances.md).

By the way, I tried LibRedirect some time ago but I still prefer Privacy Redirect; perhaps I should give it another chance.


List of Bibliogram/Nitter/Invidious/Piped instances I discovered
Intrigued by the fact that many Bibliogram/Nitter/Invidious/Piped instances are from sites that also offer other services, I set out with good will to sift through them one by one, and here are the results: (and I must say I discovered many instances that are not indexed on the “official” directories). Obviously if I missed any I will point them out and add them.

Non so se è definibile esattamente come serie, più come “insieme di serie”: dal 2015 leggo tutti i fumetti “canonici” di Star Wars, pubblicati dalla Marvel ed editi in Italia da Panini. Di altro leggo Asterix (ce li ho tutti). Da ragazzino leggevo Topolino e il Giornalino.

Sì, ci ispiriamo anche a Lillo e Greg, di cui specie Andrea è un fan sfegatato 😃


Be Radio!
Siamo tre matti scatenati che cercano di far ridere (non solo i polli, per lo meno)! https://www.fuoriritmo.it/ (e visto che siamo sul Fediverso, ci trovate anche su Funkwhale e Pixelfed 😉)

Anche aNobii permette di scaricare l’elenco dei propri libri, la funzione è stata reintrodotta di recente dopo essere stata cancellata per alcuni anni.


Il nuovo corso di Asterix: pareri?
Nonostante io abbia (quasi) 33 anni, fin da ragazzino sono stato un assiduo collezionista degli albi degli irriducibili Galli, e ad oggi posso dire di averli tutti in bella mostra in libreria, parte dei quali originali degli anni '60 e '70. È innegabile che fino a "Asterix e i Belgi" si senta il piglio di Goscinny nelle storie, che Uderzo ha tentato con alterne fortune di mantenere dopo la scomparsa dell'amico e collega; io personalmente le ho apprezzate abbastanza, se non altro per lo sforzo di tenere in piedi la serie da solo. Veniamo ora agli ultimi albi, di Ferri e Conrad, "Il papiro di Cesare" bellissima la conclusione con il richiamo a Goscinny e Uderzo ❤️; "La corsa d'Italia" vi giuro che ad un certo punto la lettura mi aveva proprio preso, dovevo rallentarmi per non leggerlo troppo di corsa 😃, "La figlia di Vercingetorige" temevo una rappresentazione stereotipata dell'adolescenza ma è andata ancora bene, è particolare la conclusione quasi fiabesca. "I Pitti" e "Il Grifone" sono quelli che mi hanno preso di meno, non so, non decollavano se non in qualche gag qua e là.

This is exactly my same doubt.

This is the answer I got from my admin: «toots are stored locally for a simple reason: let’s say a toot goes viral, then hundreds of instances would have to upload the message with photos or video from the unfortunate person’s server, which could collapse. Uploading a copy locally saves a lot of stress on the servers.»

What do you think?


Bellissimo podcast! lo scoprii per caso poco dopo il suo inizio, ho sentito tutte le puntate.

It’s mastodon.uno, at now 21300 users


I was following some Birdsitelive accounts from Mastodon, Admins regularly block every Birdsitelive instances they see being used there.


I was following some Birdsitelive accounts, Admin of the Mastodon I’m on regularly block every Birdsitelive instances they see being used, they answered me the reason is the overload of content.


Content mirroring will be a big problem
Few days ago I discovered that any time you follow a fediverse account on a different instance than your one, the server you are on mirrors the original content of any toot/post, and I think this is a huge issue, because then every Fediverse server/instance could quickly get overloaded from contents from other servers! Am I right? I've always thought that toots/posts from other instances were just "empty shells" retrieving the content on demand.

Yes, I’ve been explained just in this way, that every content from another instance is mirrored on the one I’m on. I always thought that posts from other instances were “empty shells” calling original server for the content. I think this is a big problem, from a certain point of view.


Thoughts about vocational discernment
Sometimes I think that vocational discernment should be "mandatory": such a fundamental part of a Christian's life journey cannot be left to individual initiative, but should be an integral part of Christian initiation, which in my opinion should continue until after the age of 20 (with the Confirmation). Here in Italy, many young people, even good Catholic, are not naturally led to question themselves about their vocation (whether it be consecrated life, marriage, priesthood, or none of them).

No, I meant that I thought the Birdsitelive instance went down, for example due to saturation.


Are Birdsitelive instances a problem for Mastodon servers?
Some time ago I started following some Twitter accounts from the Mastodon instance I'm on, via one of the many Birdsitelive instances. Suddenly they all disappeared and I thought of a server down; no problem I followed them again via another Birdsitelive instance. Until this week: also those ones disappeared. Then I asked to my admins, they answered they are blocking Birdsitelive instances one by one because of their huge resource consuming on server. But: shouldn't the "weight" be on the side of the Birdsitelive server? From Mastodon I'm only reading, I shouldn't being generating anything. Am I missing some technical info?

You are absolutely right. Removing Google apps and not entering a Google account on the phone are only a part of what can be done.


A questo proposito, ho sempre apprezzato moltissimo che Izzy (il ragazzo tedesco del repository IzzyOnDroid) non sia mai stato “possessivo” nei confronti delle applicazioni che si possono trovare lì (come Joplin finora), il suo intento è anzi che il suo repository sia “di passaggio” affinché poi gli sviluppatori riescano a portarle su F-Droid. Grande 👏🏻


My father is Mayor in a small town; some months ago they bought a phone (a Redmi) for the institutional phone number of the Municipality. You can imagine how many Google apps I had to uninstall… G-call, G-messages, G-contacts… well then I installed all alternative apps, no Google account on a municipality phone!



Qualche tempo fa mio padre (sindaco) aveva preso un telefono su cui mettere il numero del Comune: gli ho disinstallato un mucchio di schifezze, tra cui ovviamente le prime sono state proprio le applicazioni per chiamare, la rubrica e i messaggi, tutte di Gugol 😖 Prontamente sostituiti con applicazioni alternative!


Io ora sono su quello di /e/ (ecloud.global) con profilo a pagamento 20 GB per 20€ all’anno, mi basta e avanza (quello gratuito solo 1Gb). L’ho scelto sostanzialmente perché mi piace il progetto di /e/ e così li sostengo. Come funzionalità mi trovo benissimo, fa anche da casella e-mail.

AGGIUNTA: fondamentale per me è stato che avesse OnlyOffice integrato!


Obi-Wan Kenobi - the trailer!
Whoa!!!!!!!!!! What do you think?

Just have a look here: https://birdsitelive.fediverse.observer/list I found some instances that aren’t saturated, but not every Birdsitelive instance works on every Mastodon instance. My suggestion is to follow a Birdsite profile that posts frequently and verify if you see the posts on the Mastodon you are on.



Ohh that’s interesting, is there a particular procedure or can I just search through the internet?


Every time I discover an interesting podcast on a big site (Spotify, GooglePodcast…) I search for the original source (personal website, Funkwhale, Spreaker, Buzzsprout, Podbean…). At now there is only one podcast I’m constrained to listen on Spotify; I even wrote to the author, but at the moment he has not planned to publish it elsewhere.

Star Wars lore and… human rights
Seriously, is there people that think things like these ones?! "Force-wielders are very limited in numbers in comparison to the population. The Jedi and Sith prefer the use of a weapon called a lightsaber, a blade of energy that can cut through virtually any surface and deflect energy bolts. The rest of the population, as well as renegades and soldiers, use laser-powered blaster firearms. In the outer reaches of the galaxy, crime syndicates such as the Hutt cartel are dominant. Bounty hunters are often employed by both gangsters and governments. Illicit activities include smuggling and slavery."

Erano anni che cercavo un sito simile! Grazie!!!


I really like the approach Lucasfilm had when planning the High Republic
We all know now that the storyline of the sequel trilogy developed just along with the movies. But now we all see that there has been a great work of project behind the High Republic, involving all the authors and the Story Group together in order to define the basis of the entire story already at the beginning This should really be the new standard method of devising new stories from now on. That's just what I hoped to see! Nice job Lucasfilm!

Che valenza hanno i referendum, se col tempo la popolazione cambia?
Può sembrare una brutta provocazione anti-democratica, ma è solo un dubbio sincero. Spero lo prendiate in quanto tale. Ho cercato se se ne fosse già parlato qui, ma non ho trovato niente, in caso contrario mi scuso. Ho avuto un pensiero improvviso: mettiamo che una certa questione venga approvata o affossata da un referendum; nel giro di, mettiamo, una ventina d'anni la popolazione votante può cambiare e anche di molto, a seconda della mortalità di chi era in là con l'età e dei bambini e ragazzi che sono diventati maggiorenni nel frattempo. Per non parlare dei cambiamenti di mentalità, delle scoperte scientifiche nel caso la questione referendaria fosse stata di quell'ambito, ecc. Alla luce di questo, come considerare la valenza di un risultato referendario con progressivo passare degli anni? Davvero, prendetelo come un dubbio sincero, io non mi ritengo il più brillante degli esseri umani, quindi è probabile che sia la domanda a essere posta male. Grazie a chi risponderà!

Personal ID numbers in Republic era
In *Scum and Villainy* at page 47 we see the ID number of Nack Movers: COR143817TRND195441.37 "COR" is almost certainly for "Coruscant", "TRND" is almost certainly for Trandoshan. The numbers could be random, sequential, or have to do with his sex, area of birth, birth date. Any thoughts on the rest?

Lightsabers list and their color [CANON]
Since I did not find a list of all lightsabers arranged in this way, I made one. Hope you appreciate :-) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1V6cWD0IGG0yomOqxUKqIO-M_fKB2uAEY7qp2-1dpHCc/ I'm very sorry it's on Gdocs, I know I have to abandon the dark side of bigtech. Every suggestion for addition is welcome!

Tranquillo, personalmente non considererei pippone nemmeno una cosa lunga il triplo ahah

Per quanto concerne il metodo, sono d’accordo sul riportare anche all’esterno discussioni di qui, fu il motivo per cui mi iscrissi a Reddit.

E sono d’accordissimo anche sull’allargare gli argomenti trattati, una qualsiasi piattaforma diviene popolare imprescindibilmente con la varietà di ciò che ci si può trovare sopra!


I’m really enjoying these first episodes! I hope we’ll see more about the single characters of the team. And yes, many people think Omega is at least Force-sensitive, if not Force-user.
