Oooh, we have a genius here! In case you were too nosy to not notice, here’s what this community is about.

About the subject itself, is OP suggesting that fake PR events should be made to promote Fediverse or something? That’s only how this would make sense.

No I won’t, the weather is too cold for her to get here anyways. Also it looks like Exploding Heads is becoming a place for Wolfballs refugees.

> "Viranomaisviestinnässä pitäisi panostaa sosiaalisesti ja teknologisesti kestäviin ratkaisuihin Twitterin kaltaisten haavoittuvaisten alustojen ja palvelujen sijaan." Tosi hyvä mielipidekirjoitus (fediversumin pioneeri) Jonne Arjorannalta ja Jenna Jauhiaiselta. Mastodonin, ActivityPubin ja fediversumin toimintaa on tosi hyvin selitetty tavan tallaajalle. Hyvää näkökulmaa julkisen sektorin toimintaan.

How long until it replaces Jerry Seinfeld? Wonder what he, Larry David & co think of this - not that this breaks any copyrights.

Considering how Ozzy hasn't been the healthiest for the last few years, this was to be expected.

From what I have seen, the latest update seems to have brought several problems for instance admins. I may wait for a week or two before upgrading Sopuli.

Joku hörhö meinasi polttaa Koraanin viime viikolla Helsingissä osana mielenosoitusta, tietysti kulkien Paludanin jalanjäljissä.

Nothing of value was lost, I’m glad that Wolfballs never grew big enough to be “the Gab of Lemmy instances”.

For one there are a lot of real nazi’s on the internet. I thought most of them were fake trolls just shit posting for lulz.

Geez, the guy realized that by creating an instance based on free speech absolutism he would attract Nazis and other vermin. It’s the same story over and over again. One commenter at Reddit’s /r/RedditAlternatives put it brilliantly:

It’s always the same story. It’s like kids who despise their parent’s stupid rules, but when they become parents they discover why their parents had those “stupid” rules. Every free speech advocate thinks they’re going to fling the doors open and let people say whatever they want, until the nazis and pedos show up. Then they discover why every previous admin employed censorship.

Choose an user of your instance, press the three-dot-button --> There is an option “appoint as admin”.

En ollenkaan ihmettele jos jotkut äärioikeistolaiset päättäisivät seurata Rasmus Paludanin esimerkkiä ja polttaa Koraanin, osa ärsyttääkseen Turkkia ja osa jarruttaakseen Suomen Natoon pääsemistä. Jos tarkoitus on estää mahdollisuus Suomen ja Turkin välien katkeamiseen, kyllä, tuosta laista on silloin hyötyä. Turkki ja Erdogan tosin ärsyyntyvät varmasti muistakin asioista, kuten esimerkiksi Ville Rannan pilapiirroksista.

Uskonrauhan rikkominen on muuten kyseenalainen laki, kuten sanoitkin. Suojellaan lain turvin joidenkin pyhinä pitämiä satuolentoja. Koraanin polttaminen on mielestäni sananvapautta samaan tapaan kuin Raamatun tai muun pyhän kirjan polttaminen, niiden tulisi olla samalla viivalla.

The year of the Linux desktop has been going on for the last few years.

“I, fucking my lost cat.”

I think you should post this into ! if you’re going to ask the folks there.

When I first saw the title of ModernVintageGamer’s video, I was like “whaaaat, the original Xbox?”

Oh, I remember! My first MP3 player could play music from an SD card, no idea of the brand. Later I got Creative Muvo V200 that also had a radio.

In 2006 I got my fist phone, Nokia 6630. Some years afterwards I bought a headphone adapter for it, a 2GB memory card and downloaded a good MP3 player software. Then I used it as my “daily driver” for listening MP3’s for years. At the time it wasn’t really common to use only a phone for such purpose.

I may buy AC Mirage and try XDefiant, but otherwise new Ubisoft games don’t interest me much. Those videos you mentioned are worth watching, really thorough.

TikTok and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race.

Reminds me of right-wing populists here trying to change peat into “renewable energy source”.

What the hell? In the summer he was touring with Johnny Depp and playing eccentrically like there was no tomorrow. At that age one can’t of course be sure whether a small health injury requiring hospital care will lead to death. I’m not 100% familiar with his work, but I liked his guitar work in Ozzy’s latest album “Patient Number 9”.

Who needs Gab, Parler, Gettr or whatever if Twitter is going to resemble them?

“If you don’t succeed, redefine success.”

More things to consider: are there mask mandates and are FFP2/3 level masks used? How widely air purifiers are used to reduce virus levels in air?

Having a name something else than “Wii U” would have made the console sell better.

Exactly. Time feels like a flat circle: in the 60s many conservatives accused The Beatles of siding with the devil, getting involved with the occult and corrupting the youth. Now QAnon folks claim similar things, only with a new wrapping. This excerpt from a Rolling Stone article also made me crack up:

Yet another QAnon believer, under a post connecting the song “Piggies” to the Manson Family murders of 1969, has it that the Beatles got some of their lyrics from Charles Manson, and that all of them were part of a Tavistock psyop. This led to some bickering when someone else disagreed, and eventually devolved into two boomers arguing over who was the true Beatles expert. “I was a fan of the Beatles after Ed Sullivan,” said the first, while the second shot back that they “lived in Kirby in 1962,” an English town near Liverpool where the band played a show that year. The first user then enigmatically replied, “Sometimes the soldier in the foxhole is the last to know.” Further down in the thread, a third party wrote, apropos of the earlier Manson reference, “sharon tate was a man sorry to burst your bubble.”


By 2030 You Will Own Nothing and Be Happy

– Klaus Schwab

Where has Schwab ever stated this? Nowhere, this claim originates from one blog post that was speculating about the future, it was never intended to be a part of WEF’s agenda. Conspiracy nuts have then started to regurgitate that claim and blog post around in their own echo chambers.

The WEF does not have a ‘stated goal’ to remove everyone’s private property by 2030. As addressed in previous Reuters fact checks, these claims likely originated from a WEF social media video from 2016 that stated eight predictions about the world in 2030, including: “You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy. What you want you’ll rent, and it’ll be delivered by drone.”

Danish politician Ida Auken, who wrote the prediction in question (here), said it was not a “utopia or dream of the future” but “a scenario showing where we could be heading - for better and for worse.”

In a written update, she clarified that the piece aimed to “start a discussion about some of the pros and cons of the current technological development. When we are dealing with the future, it is not enough to work with reports. We should start discussions in many new ways. This is the intention with this piece.”

And why is Bill Gates there? He has been in some previous G20 Summits like in 2011 when he was invited by Nicolas Sarkozy – but not in this one. Klaus Schwab was at B20 summit that was held concurrently with G20 in Bali.

Although several reports prior to the summit claimed that Gates was planning to attend the event, he was in fact in Kenya, meeting with leaders and officials to discuss developments in health care, agriculture, and information technology.

Gates was interviewed by Kenyan press at the time the G20 summit was taking place and sent a number of tweets while in Nairobi showing him with the country’s leaders.

While neither Bill Gates nor his former wife Melinda attended, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was among three organizations that have committed alongside G20 nations to the launch of an international “pandemic fund.”

Klaus Schwab, the founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF), did go to Bali, but he was attending B20, a concurrent event that is part of the G20 summit that invites global business leaders for a series of keynote addresses and speeches.

Schwab was among a list of speakers, including SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, who delivered talks at B20.

This nuance, however, was missing from the posts questioning why “non-politicians” were attending the summit in Bali.

Stop getting your news from Twitter of all places and spreading false claims made by whackos. Asking that question doesn’t make anyone a conspiracy theorist, if the basic facts are right in first place.

Gaming, going to the gym, reading books, programming, hanging out with my friends, going to bars… during summer I usually hang out with my friends at parks.

Had to delete several faulty snapshot files from pict-rs. Otherwise the Docker container for it would restart every 30 seconds or so.

As an update, I restarted all the Docker containers but the problem still persists. There may be a problem with pict-rs that handles hosting images.

I noticed too that some images are not loading, and it persists even after deleting my browser’s cache.

I’m restarting Sopuli and removing over 7 GB of local backups, try again!
