Friends don’t let friends use proprietary software.

once an open-source program gets enough attention it achieves “critical mass”, and proprietary software can never catch back up.

They probably see the inevitable and are jumping on the train before it leaves the station

I dont even bother setting up email service for my instances, maybe they dont either.

I’d dm an admin =/

a poop emoji if you dont pay at all

Yeah, I dont like the “github releases” for exactly this reason.

I have double the swap than physical memory in a swap partition. In not concerned about wearing it out, and I like having plenty of space for hibernation ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I dont think you should use nofail, there is probably a away to get fstab to work 🤔

Did you read the logs to see what the issue is? can you manually mount?

Feel free to post in the “linux” community, for FOSS stuff, and I just made the “tech support” community for everything else.

A open-source privacy focused OS from google?

Cant wait for the proprietary modules!

Nah, they make it so we cultivate them

They are the way forward, but I’d buy an AMD one right now 😞

yeah, trying to sync all the info across the fediverse can be expensive, but its also distributed among a lot of different servers, so its kind of a double edged sword.

words have a hard time expressing the awesomeness of federation =]

strange, I commented on another instance just fine…

Only banning “unregulated” gambling is one hell of a copout!


(you have to search for the peertube channel url in lemmy to view them)

EDIT: and the lemmy-view will be missing some content because of the federaton bug that got fixed, but you can search video urls to make them show up

seems to be working 🎉

[RFC] How should code-highlighting themes be handled?
I'm working on adding highlighting to `code-blocks` on lemmy using [highlight.js](, and am wondering exactly how to implement it. There are many code-themes that could be used Regarding which theme to use there are basically two different directions I could go: 1. Each lemmy-theme would have to explicitly declare an hljs theme to use. - PROS: - easy to use, users automatically get an appropriate code-theme for every ui-theme. - simple to implement (already done) - CONS: - theme-makers need to pick an appropriate theme - no user customizability, limited number of themes 2. Users can pick their preferred theme just like they pick a UI theme. - PROS: - Extreme customization, there are a buttload of themes, and users can pick any one! - CONS: - Users would **need** to pick an appropriate theme. It would use the "browser-default" (light/dark) until they pick one, and could look weird and be confusing until then - PITA to implement & requires back-end changes (wont see it for a while) Let me know what you think, or if you have another solution. I have solution #1 deployed on right now =] Here is the PR for those interested:
