Taken from r/fuckcars:

Sometimes. It depends on what I’m reading, but if I do, it’s a chill playlist or a game’s soundtrack. Music with lyrics is distracting, especially if it’s a language I understand, haha. There’s also the fact that the mood of the book can change chapter by chapter, and the music may take me out of it or make the experience less enjoyable. Changing the playlist while the story progresses sounds like too much trouble to me, but it may be doable.

When using my computer, I just recently started using fluent reader. The UI is pretty clean and the few keyboard shortcuts fit my limited needs for an RSS reader. It also has filtering, which I guess pretty much all readers have.

When using my phone, I use Read You. The reasons are pretty much the same, simple UI, easy to use, etc.

And some people still don’t care at all, or even prefer to be spied on, for some weird reason. Definitely scary.

But hey, privacy is not that important. /s

Does anyone have a good RSS feed in German?
Hi, everyone. I'm looking to practice my German, and reading is usually a good way to do that. Does anyone have a good RSS feed for that? It can be news, blog posts, etc. :) I'll share the one I'm currently using: It's a little basic, as the name implies, so I'm looking for something more advanced.

I think that the federation approach allows more resilience against power outages (?). If one instance goes down for whatever reason, the rest are still up and running, instead of a global outage for the whole Fediverse.

If the creator of the work holds a patent related to it, even if it’s licensed under CC0, they can sue you for infringing on their patent. The article links a good explanation:

Kinda obvious to most, but still important advice.

It’s good to have a statement instead of just ignoring the problem. Especially since they have such a big audience, including many kids who probably don’t fully understand how these things work.

I'm working on a template for a minimalistic static blog. Just published an initial version that works with or without JavaScript enabled. Any feedback or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. :)

I keep talking about the Fediverse as a whole to anyone willing to listen. I may not move the masses, but if I can convince even a couple of my friends to give Lemmy, Mastodon or any other open source federated platform a try, I consider that a win.

Just letting people know Lemmy exists is a contribution to its adoption. It’s especially useful to let people know there are alternatives when a big platform has an exodus of users, be it due to poor moderation, a failed acquisition attempt, or any other kind of drama, since that’s when they’re most willing to migrate permanently.

The fact that every instance is capable of being its full-fledged thing, doesn’t mean it has to do so. That’s why we have federation. So yeah, federation allows any approach you want, like the one you mention, of having instances that focus in certain topics, but having generalist instances is okay too. The important part is that users from one instance can participate in the communities of other instances.

Either community or sublemmy. But I agree that community is generally better.

A classic error we should be aware of.

Basically, what came before the Steam Deck.

Valve really did a good job with the Steam Deck and Steam OS. I fully agree.

Hopefully, more Steam Deck users will realize how easy it is now to play most games on Linux. And the games that are not playable tend to be multiplayer microtransaction fests that also require some invasive anti-cheating software, so it’s not like we’re missing much.

For people who enjoy single player games and don’t require specialized software for their daily life, this shows them how far Linux has come, and how viable it is as a daily driver.

Every time I want to read an article or even blog posts. So painfully true. 🙃

Lawmakers always making it pretty they don’t understand encryption, or that they don’t give a fuck about people’s privacy and rights. Using the excuse of protecting children to pass these laws that open the door to freedom of speech and privacy violations is foul.

Hopefully it will be stopped, or we can expect other governments to copy this kind of legislation using the same excuses.

  • Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
  • Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  • Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
  • The Black Book by Giovanni Papini

They took the bag and then let the speaker do his thing. As you say, massive respect to them. I fully agree with Venturelli when it comes to actually being in the spaces given to us and voicing our opinions, instead of being absent and letting crypto bros do their thing and appear legit.

All in a parking lot many times bigger than the building itself.

Gotta thank car centric laws and requirements for this kind of aggressive development against anyone who doesn’t own a car, or dares to take a walk or ride a bike.

Hey, even more reasons not to buy a car!

But seriously, this kind of thing is not only a stupid idea, it also ends up being a first step towards less freedom, causing problems with the right to repair and having control over the very thing you bought.

That sure felt like a short time of waiting, now that I think of it. Chainsaw Man is back! This first chapter of the part 2 was full of action and shows some interesting changes in the world. I’m excited to see what we’ll see in the next chapters.

Even eating the same shitty gas station breakfast would be better when riding the train rather than driving.

This has to be a joke, right? 😟

I think that, the more time passes, the bigger the expectations of people. Whatever they do, Team Cherry has proven they are capable of creating a good game. Hopefully it’ll be a game we can experience soon(ish). For the time being, we can hope and wish they are making good progress.

This one sounds reasonable to me. Everyone loves bleeding edge and the latest updates until things suddenly stop working.

We, as individuals, have the freedom to choose whether we want nightly updates or more stable ones, but there’s a degree of responsibility that comes from distributing packages to users who, at least, expect usability. This is the case even for those of distros which pride themselves in being bleeding edge.

I like the approach that Arch takes with having the official package and, oftentimes, a “-git” package in the AUR. The expectations should be pretty clear to all users with that.

I don’t know if there’s any etiquette regarding spoilers in these kinds of threads, so I’ll just mark my comment as a spoiler.


I think it’ll be interesting to see how things go now that the president is going to Stanford. I wonder how things will change in the student council with one missing member.

Sounds like a dream. Any progress is better than no progress haha. We should still push for more changes to be made.

These kinds of vehicles are wholly unnecessary for the city. Using a big ass truck in the field makes sense, but lots of people in the city just buy them because they think that it makes them look badass.

I think we should start by establishing more car free zones in city centers, as well as redesigning the streets and sidewalks to give enough space for pedestrians and bikes to exist, instead of giving cars a sea of lanes that invite them to drive recklessly.

I think that what’s happening with Netflix and Uber only shows how unsustainable it is to disrupt the market with cheap prices and a goodish service in order to dominate and remove all competition from the market only to later, inevitably, raise prices and stop the innovation.

To me, it’s clear enough that competition won’t dissappear and now users will be less than happy, since what they were used to is now being taken away due to raising costs of operation and the demand for ever-growing profitability by the investors.

Great article!

I’m currently taking a course on compiler design, and our final project is to write both a compiler and a VM like the one specified in the article to run our compiled code. This helped me realize how inefficient mine is, though. 😅

That is true. I just wish it was also true for other countries, like Mexico, in my case :/

My main problem is counting calories on the spot. Planning meals is nice and all, but not always possible when going out with friends or family. That makes it easy to lose track of how many calories I have consumed during the day.

I think it’s just plain easier to develop a web front end compared to other ways to do things.

There’s plenty of documentation and most people interested in software development end up dabbling with web development one way or another, so why not develop everything with the same technologies and avoid the hassle of native development.

Not that I like it, but it kind of makes sense. 🤔

I just started using RSS a couple of weeks ago. It’s been a great experience so far. I don’t have as many recommendations as others, but this is what I have:

I’ll keep an eye for any other good feeds :b
