I just did this! I have a VPS, and I used wg-easy with Adguard DNS on by default (clients can change this if they choose, just have to change the DNS setting).

I haven’t noticed any throttling, I use my own VPN service though

What information do I need to store for my account?

Looking through my password manager, I realized I have a lot of information on my Matrix account, some of which I probably don’t need. Other than the username and password associated with the account, what information is needed? And what format is this information in (user-generated password, auto g…

I can’t find one, project looks rather new so I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re focusing on other stuff (looks like desktop clients are being worked on now)

most the article said is: “While vaccines are helpful, the “social vaccine” of masks, hand-hygiene and physical distance is the most effective weapon against the pandemic”

those looking for a similar service should also check out anonaddy

That is not the trackers section.

I didn’t even know it was encrypted and used it anyway because it’s so simple and easy

OMEMO is not default. Even in the list you linked, half of the clients do not fully support it.

We really need to stop recommending Keybase to people, the codebase is not maintained at all (the github activity is a flat line) so the crypto should be considered obsolete. From what I can tell, it was designed to show off the skills of the devs for acquisition/hiring and now it has been acquired.

I think they’re aiming at a more general market, that needs a nice UI to use the product. Also, XMPP is not encrypted by default.

I second this. Joplin is great for notes, and they have checkboxes that you could use for a todo list (I use it for my grocery list). It’s also encrypted, has clients for all devices, and is still getting new features with an active development team. Highly reccomend

Are you sure it’s unsupported? Not yet having 18.1 support doesn’t mean it’s unsupported

Where is the PixelFed app in the process?

Last I heard of it was a long time ago, which was that it was submitted to F-Droid and Apple for review. Is this true or is there still development going on with it? Thanks :)…

Here’s some things I personally do to get people on. I’ve gotten my girlfriend and my family over, and I got a group of friends over to Keybase before the Zoom days.

Do NOT mention privacy/encryption to anyone who doesn’t care about that stuff. Focus on the genuine benefits beyond that: online chat (no iPhone/Android stuff), reactions/stickers/editing/replying, good UI/UX, can message from computer (or have multiple devices in general).

Matrix sorta does everything you said minus the TOR afaik. It’s definitely decentralized, federated, E2EE, and has voice/video chat. The 2FA is more of a verification but it’s there (not TOTP/HOTP though). You can also route the app through TOR I’d imagine!

Honestly I partially see your point. Masturbation by itself isn’t necessarily bad, but the problem many people have (myself included) is that porn/masturbation can start to replace the real thing and take energy from you. First it’s a harmless activity, then a habit, then an addiction. And obviously we don’t get superpowers, but the feeling of regaining your energy from something that’s been draining it for so long is a very empowering feeling. And there’s so much positivity around both porn and masturbating that we’ve gotten to the point where children, even just 8 years old, find porn randomly and start a spiraling journey into the addiction. This stuff is more powerful than people realize and it’s doing a lot of harm.

For me I’ve found two big ones are social media and porn. Obviously on posting this on /c/NoFap so the latter is what I’m getting at, but they can both make me feel like I don’t have time for other things that I want to do or that I’m too tired to hang out with my friends. I want that energy back.

What things take too much of your mental energy?

I’ve noticed that some things just drain my energy and keep me from other things, even though I enjoy them in the moment. What things do you think drain yours?..

I try not to. In an abstract sense, porn is enjoying something that you desire without having to put in the effort to actually get it. It’s fake, illusionary. When I look at porn it’s because I’m in a weak state and just want that small dopamine rush. I started the NoFap community for me and people like me to quit this habit and become stronger people.

Is a Matrix messaging system feasible to implement in Lemmy?

I would bet my left hand that it’s possible, but is it feasible to use Matrix for the messaging? Or is this simply out the scope for the project?..

What things should everyone give a good spring cleaning?

Digital or physical!..

Does OSM have any automated map building tools? Would it be possible to use these as a map editor?

Hey all, I’m trying to update OSM in my area but it is incredibly tedious to outline every building and add addresses. Is there any tool that can partially automate any of this process?..

What features is Lemmy looking to add before 1.0 release?

We’re at 0.9.9 already and the site seems pretty well developed. What are the devs working to add before 1.0?..

New community - /c/nofap

This community is for anyone looking to break a PMO (Porn, Masturbation, Orgasm) habit or addiction. You can post anything related to quitting PMO (rules in sidebar). In the future, rebooting challenges will be held to challenge oneself to abstain from PMO for a specific period of time (or longer!)…


just a thought, but it would fill out the osm street view for almost all of the US and would probably make OSM more popular for those who need that…
