Thanks for this post! I signed and shared :thumbs up:

Hi fellow dwm user :P

What is the font and the browser you’re using here?


Thanks, I removed Vimium and use Tridactyl now. It has a better interface, and an easier way to use the visual mode (for text selection).


Very useful and pleasant to use. You almost don't have to move your fingers out of the keyboard with this extension.

Good theme recommendations?
I am looking for a nice theme for Hugo. This is some examples of other things themes I like and why I cannot use them: * https://www.getrichordevtryin.com/ : It's a Jekyll theme * https://htdvisser.github.io/hugo-base16-theme/ : When I run the server, the post list is not displayed. Can you help me?

I never heard negative criticisms about wayland :thinking face:


Yes, but still, you can know how many devices a user has, the schedule of the user (or at least when that user has the time to go on Discord), what mean of transport that user uses (by calculating the time between 2 connection locations, and when some messages are posted).

Those things may not be totally accurate (because statistics are not), but I think we can still do some nice stuff with this data package alone.

What do you think?


What information can be deduced from metadata?
Hello Lemmy! I recently discovered the "Request my data" function of Discord. Now that I have the data Discord knows about me. I would like to make an experiment that could be used to explain how metadata can say a lot about people. The problem is, I never done that :grinning face with sweat: so I would like to know how I could get everything I can, only from the metadata contained in the package. I know it's possible, according to the length of calls, the umber of messages, etc, to guess what kind of relation a user have with another, but I don't know how to do that. This is a description of the data package: https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004957991 Can you help me to know what are the information I can determine about myself using this package (only the metadata, or it's not fair :p) Thanks in advance! ~Snow

In capitalism the deaths are indirect deaths unlike in authoritarian systems, they are more difficult to calculate. But I got your point.


That means you will be more dependent on Matrix.org server, unlike in Mastodon, where there are many different instances.


I think it works using forks, which means several versions can coexist. You can accept or decline a fork of another user on your instance.


Yes, but there’s worse: to edit a page, you need to host an instance of the wiki yourself.

In deed that was one of the thing I got in mind. I don’t think the academic writing rules can be applied to any topic the same way.


How can we fix Wikipedia?
I LOVE Wikipedia, I think it's one of the best websites of the internet. But the fact is that Wikipedia has many flaws: * Editing became very hard on Wikipedia based on the amount of rules to respect * Wikipedia is biased, many cultures and minorities are not well represented among editors and pages. * Wikipedia is a dependence, I can't imagine Wikipedia disappear, I think it already changed the way people see knowledge, not as something fixed anymore, but as something dynamic that changes and evolve. * Wikipedia 'sources admission' are also very... Weird. Because you can be a professional in a special field, it doesn't mean your contribution will be accepted, just because your source is not coming from a 'reliable source', even if YOU are this reliable source. There are other problems as well, but I think those are the most important ones. What do you think about it? If you could change anything or everything to Wikipedia, what would you do?

I mean, people with low-end servers aren’t going to install a matrix server. So it’s limiting the decentralization of Matrix.


Still better than Google and I actually don’t know any good alternative to it.


I don’t know anything about the protests in honk kong, why is it a problem? (it’s a real question, not a troll)


Sorry, I will read some of them, but I don’t have so much time now. What is the most successful example of marxism in your opinion?

BTW, Dessalines seems to have done an amazing job here!


Yes I think I understand now. I discussed on a Discord server about anarchism and they said the same thing. Thanks for all these recommendations, I already read some extracts of Bookchin, I will take care of the others.


OK So if I understand properly, you just think anarchism is too idealistic? (tell me if I misunderstand). How would corruption (and abusive centralization in general) be avoided in communism?



And why so? Why would they say no?


A quick shower thought I had about revolutionary anarchism.
I just noticed something, revolutionary anarchism doesn't make sense in some way. Anarchism is against authority, but if a revolution happen, anarchists, by destroying the actual system, will force people to adopt a new lifestyle against their freewill. What do you think about that? Isn't this a paradox? EDIT: Just to note, this is not a troll post, I am really asking myself this question. I am discussing on Discord about the same topic and I forgot to mention that I am only talking about a VIOLENT revolution.

I am tired of debates
Hello, when I am writing this I don't know in which community I will be posting this, but I would like to get some feedback about that. To state my ideas upfront I consider myself as an eco-anarchist and antifa, I want to promote transparency, privacy and open-source to maximize freedom. I write this post because, as you seen in the title, I am bored of debating my positions, but also because I start to loose hope, I want the best for the world but I feel like nobody even care about those stuff, that I'm just a 'fucking marxist afraid of progress'. There is so much things based on fake facts in politics, this is tiring me down. What ever you look into, crap facts are going to come up. I don't want to fall into the common trap of "{what ever thing} is really EVIL". But at the same time, the debates of today are so polarized that I feel like I don't have the choice, saying, "I think that because I think it's good" has absolutely no weight in a debate. I am getting bored of all of this, too much talking, too little action. This is really something that is making me sad and depressed. Do you feel the same way? TL;DR, I cannot find good facts to justify 'leftism' and other ideas like free software, I feel like right wing just have no moral though, but am I just too irrational?

Why are we against hierarchy?
I am trying to write a simple faq about anarchism. One of the question is "Why do anarchist want to abolish hierarchies?". This question sounds so obvious to me I cannot write something convincing enough. For know I got the following: ``` First, it is necessary to indicate what kind of authority anarchism challenges. While anarchists have, on occasion, stated their opposition to “all authority” a closer reading quickly shows that anarchists reject only one specific form of authority, what we tend to call hierarchy. Hierarchy is a social, religious, economic or political system or organization in which people or groups of people are ranked with some superior to others based on their status, authority or some other trait. Authority is the power to enforce rules and give orders. But why do we need a such authority? Why would they be more accountable for doing this job than anybody else? For example, in a factory, why would the boss be necessary? Workers could just organize themselves and do the same function. You never agreed to respect hierarchies like the state, the police, the companies, etc. When you born you never signed a contract saying you agreed with all of this, so why should you respect it? ``` What do you think about it? What would you add to it?

Anarchism and communism
I am an anarchist. But I am not an asshole, I would like to understand why some communists are so hostile against anarchist and why some anarchist are so hostile toward communism. I don't understand that. There are a lot of common ways of doing things between anarchists and communism and we both have the goal. It can seem like a very stupid post, but I am really trying to understand :)

List of everything I use on my laptop
This is the things I use on my computer. :) ## Conditions for a good software accoridng to me * Least number of visual stimulations. No notifications, no sounds, no tons of button everywhere... Best if it can be only used using keyboard. * Light, my computer also wants to benefit from minimalism. * Respects its users. It needs to be "free software" (free as freedom) * Being necessary for you. ### The basic stuff * **Xubuntu** is my operating system. * **dwm** (plus **dmenu**) is my window manager. Everything is done using a few shortcuts and takes no space on the screen. The shortcuts are easy to get, but the installation might be tricky for new linux users. * **st** is my terminal. I use it for coding, writing and managing my system. The only thing I changed to it was to change the fontsize and enable the scrollback patch. But again it might be tricky to install for new linux users. ### Browsing online I already tried other stuff like "surf" but I don't like it because I want to use an adblocker. * **Firefox** is my favorite browser. I use it because it's lighter than other browsers, and I can install uBlock Origin. ### Writing I need to write things for school and for myself. So I mainly use Marktext or nano to write my stuff. * **Marktext** is a markdown editor. I like markdown because I don't want to pass the majority of my time on choosing fonts and stuff like that. Also I think it's more handy and reliable. I only use this app for exporting into pdf. I write using `nano` * **Nano** is a terminal-based editor. Very easy to use, only terminal based. I use for both writing markdown and writing code. * **Libreoffice** if I really need to have a "classic" office suite. ### Communication #### Chatting * **dino (xmpp client)**, it is my favorite chatting software. I like it more than Discord because, instead of joining a ton of useless channels, you only join the ones you want. (Also it's lighter than Matrix.) * **HexChat** is my favorite IRC client. Yes I still use IRC, it's so simple and stupid, I love it! #### Emails * **Thunderbird**, it has a very "brut" interface, but very handy and powerful. You can setup filters to automatically clean your inbox. I never get up to 20 messages in my inbox this way. ### Coding I use nano as my code editor. That's it, same thing as said above. * **nano** and **st** is my IDE :) * **openscad** is the cad software I use. Basically, design things in 3D using code. ### Video * **Shotcut** is a nice video editor. Pretty straight forward. When I need something more advanced, I use **kdenlive**. * **VLC** is a nice video viewer. ### Photo * **Firefox** is my image viewer. * **GIMP** is my image editor. I don't want to use photoshop. ### Sound * **Audacity** is useful when I need to record sound * **pavucontrol** is the tool I use to manage the input/output audio stuff. * **Musecore** is a score editor I use to digitalize and read piano scores.

I found that on r/webdev. What do you think about this opinion?

How is "federalization" going?
Hi! I am a beginner programmer, but I would like to understand the general process to go from a non-activitypub to an activity software (ie. Lemmy)


The must "you" have been uploaded 3 weeks ago on the MrSuicideSheep's YouTube channel (my eternal playlist) and really catch me. My favorite tracks from that guy are pretty much everything.

How to create a good unedited video?
So, how can we create videos without editing that aren't painful to watch? Example: Live streams re-diffusion.
