Okay, I have to come clean about this. I haven’t opened lemmy.ml for over a month at least and everybody has to be curious about why my instance is down.

I did several screw-ups and accidentally deleted the instance from my server. Luckily I had made database backups beforehand. Now I have faced several problems regarding reinstallation and restoring the backups. I have been in a kind of hurry because of job searching and several other things.

Regardless, I’m not burying Sopuli.xyz and I’m not having a Hetzner VPS for nothing. If this means starting from scratch, so be it.

Plausible Analytics would be a good non-Google and privacy respecting alternative. Voluntary surveys for Audacity users would be also a good option.

I tried to find it on Lemmur and it displays all fine.

Some time ago I told about wanting to create my own Lemmy instance so BAM - there it is! "Sopuli" is a Finnish word for a lemming. The instance is general-purpose, mainly aimed for Finnish users. All users are however welcome! The instance's logo is the Lemmy logo with a traditional Finnish calotte added. It may be a subject of change. I'm currently trying to get several friends of mine on board the instance as moderators.

2 years or so and Google drops out of the gaming race.

This is like smoking for the world’s lungs. Recovering after this will be hard, after some more reasonable president comes after Bolsonaro.

So basically those reactionary folks in Poland should support abortions because that would mean returning to the old times.


A government funded centralized social media platform sounds already like a mess, what could possibly go wrong?

Someone created an account called “login”, after clicking on his profile, you just log out

Holy shit this is bad, and I thought Parler was done more hastily.

What aspects of RE4 need to be remade and modernized? The game has already earned the status of Capcom’s Skyrim, as it has been ported to gorillions of platforms.

Partiboi69’s DJ sets with various special guest stars are also absolute bangers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw0vC9NZMco

It’s definitely a strange tradition that started somewhere around the early 80s. A bucket is just a really easy household tool and everybody has some use for it.

It’s just an empty bucket! Every time there’s a grand opening of a store/mall/etc, empty buckets are handed out. Some people have even suggested it in order to increase voter turnout in elections.

I could imagine a situation where someone makes low-effort memes, reposts or something that fits Reddit’s monoculture, gaining that 20k positive karma. That person may not comment much and the comments may be low-effort. Where’s the maturity and legitimacy here?

That’s great - isn’t that exactly the ‘social score’ implemented in China? Yikes.

Reddit’s biggest investors are Chinese so this is just fitting.

It’s just good that there is no karma on user profiles. There will be no hierarchy between users based on karma and no circlejerking around it. Like “hehehe see how you have so small amount of karma” and something else. Karma scores on posts should only matter.

Those people are living in an alternative reality fed to them via Fox News, Parler, InfoWars and various pundits. Ted Nugent is like if Fox News was a musician.

I like Telegram mainly because of the many features and larger userbase.

I have been using Microsoft Swiftkey for 5-6 years or so.

Most likely the privacy-conscious users will start leaving WhatsApp, while those who don’t care just resort to saying “I have nothing to hide”.

You know all those conspiracy nuts blaming Bill Gates on coronavirus? This is playing around the idea in a joking manner.

Even if Voat refugees create their own Lemmy instance, it will be blocked from federation so we don’t have to deal with their bullshit. In their own safe space they can be racist together in peace and harmony.

KFC seems to be serious with that thing, they released a trailer in June.

CNN made an article mainly about the Nordic countries that succeeded. Sweden’s approach of gloriously fucking things up is compared with the measures the other countries took and is even noted in a graph.

This is the game’s PC port based on the decompiled source code. All ray tracing is enabled through a work-in-progress mod.

And where to even begin with Ruqqus?

Trump can’t basically admit he’s wrong, it is part of his personality. Same with his cultists, they just keep beating a dead horse.

This whole Xaiecon platform raises many questions.

The tag-line will surely bring lots of insightful people into the marketplace of ideas! /s

The site certainly doesn’t work, I clicked the “get started” text and got this.

Basically every K-pop stan on Twitter ever.
