Maybe it didn’t open the ports? See firewall in the yunohost admin panel

interesting. It’s an additional click that’s confusing at first, but still a cool service

That’s true. The client is good, just not for XMPP. I recommend Dino for linux and gajim for windows

I can recommend it. Prosody is good and easy to set up

hey quick question, why does your peertube instance not allow other instances to follow it? Would be great if I didn’t have to make an account just to like and subscribe?

This also leads to the weird behavior where I can’t watch, like and follow through other peertube servers but I can watch, like and follow from mastodon.

Anyways, otherwise a pretty cool project, good luck to y’all!

also it’s pretty slow at the moment, I can’t watch a 1080p60fps video in real time

btw do you know why tilvids doesn’t allow other instances to follow and thus have them index their videos?

I agree that this is a good start, I follow most of these but I come from being a Youtube addict so it’s never enough ;)

What are your favorite peertube channels?
I am looking for content, I like the platform but don't have much to watch.

Also it’s just straight up punk and more free

I mean if someone gains access to your unlocked device they can install a keylogger and whatnot, so I don’t think this is a huge issue anyways

idk they might be a really cool and respectful person

It’s because they aren’t trying to sell as many t-shirts as possible (like fashion retailers) but instead sell to their hardcore fans. People who are willing to wear a LTT shirt might even be happy if it’s just for those who really identify with it instead of random people buying it to use as a t-shirt.

tl;dr: because they can

I mean pea protein and coconut fat isn’t meat, so I am not surprised

tl;dr: Signal encryption is (almost certainly) safe, but if someone gains access to your unlocked device, all bets are off.

I feel like apart from this being a cheap shot many people are talking about the communism of the UDSSR and modern day china when they say communism bad but ultimately don’t oppose the values that communists have.

It’s just a different journey of a person discovering that eating healthier feels good. Like the american food he talks about all has a ton of oil and sugar, both aren’t healthy and fat for example makes you feel sluggish.

So then he goes and tries other cultures, figures out that some people in europe eat the same food but with less sugar and less fat.

He could have researched what americans ate decades ago, I bet there was plain unsweetened corn flakes and bread, maybe even whole wheat bread. Stuff like that totally is healthy and good for you, just not fried and topped with sugar.

In europe we are on the way to add even more fat and sugar as well, it’s the most delicious flavors after all - but having that kind of fun every morning comes at a toll.

Also he says that he “just doesn’t like the fatty and sweet food”, which I don’t fully accept, he just isn’t used to this kind of diet and isn’t used to feeling shitty afterwards.

You’ll feel better eating healthier is my point.

that’s not how you link to a toot, you should press dot menu -> copy link to this toot

decent cheap vegan oils

Olive oil and canola is what I use for everything. Why wouldn’t u use these?

I think it’s vegan and also try to avoid it due to it being unhealty. Canola oil is cheaper, healthier and better for animals and nature, so I buy that. I don’t avoid all products with palm oil.

But all of this is out of a mix of concerns but a lack of will to fully cut it out. Idk I think you can say that in the end I don’t care very much.

I have played the prototype and it’s not always easy to understand what you have to do, a pretty short game but all in all a new and interesting concept. Would play again.

I found another interesting article:

Simon Harman, 23, Loki’s project lead, said Mr Watkin’s plan was by and large a surprise — and one, he conceded, that might not be optimal for the company’s emerging reputation.

Mr Harman says Loki did not invite 8kun onto its open source network nor help build it.

But some Loki staff may have advised 8kun administrators “to a limited extent”, he said, and provided some help to users hoping to access it.

“Generally, if we get requests for technical information about our platform, we’ll just give it out. It’s all up open source anyway,” he said.

“There’s definitely been interaction between 8chan users and the Lokinet team. I’m not going to say that that hasn’t occurred, but I don’t think it’s anything out of the ordinary.”

But I think all in all there isn’t clear intent here, so we’ll just have to see what the future brings.

Good luck to your team and such.

I’d like to host a router if there ever is a fork that doesn’t need the Oxen stake.

pretty cool! This shows that people will switch to better privacy solutions if they have clear branding and are easy to use. I wish there was an open-source and decentralized alternative to ddg

The CTO of Oxen has answered in my post about Lokinet, $OXEN, SESSION and LLARP
It's quite interesting what he says. He says there is no connection to 8chan/8kun and that $17.000 investment for each onion-routing server is a sensible amount. I don't know what to make of it and the post seemed to not get any attention, that's why I am making a new post for it here EDIT: Changed the link to their post to the url instead of

Pleroma is cool as well, but since mastodon allows to move your profile to a different server while taking followers with you I feel like this is a killer feature. I can confidently tell new users that it doesn’t matter which instance they join at first, they can always move later. Like this the feeling of “missing out” is relieved a bit.

I see that the announcement advertising post wasn’t on 8chan or 8kun but overchan, which makes sense, since jeff worked on nntp-chan. Sorry that I claimed they did.

8kun (rebrand after 8chan was banned) does host their site on lokinet and still does, for two years now though, right?

Also there is this reddit post where someone claims that

So it’s pure coincidence that Ron’s father Jim Watson, who has been hosting 8chan and is now running 8kun, has transferred some of his old business into a “Loki Technology Inc.” of his own some time ago (see, and that 8kun’s planned “Project ODIN” caters to the same Norse mythology theme. It almost made me wonder, especially since Loki’s dev Jeff has also been active on endchan.

Their name actually is Jim Watkins and wikipedia also states that

Watkins also runs the Manila-based business Loki Technology.

What is going on here? Nothing to do with the Oxen, lokinet etc?

Is it just a coincidence that the biggest site hosted on your network is 8kun?

Also: $17k min investment to help the network, lmao that’s insane and I can’t imagine that does any good.

Ne Scherz beiseite voll am victim blamen ey (ich merk Bilder hochladen geht auch nicht grad...)

Wie stehts um diesen Server?
Sind alle willkommen die die Regeln einhalten? Laeuft alles nach Plan? Admins und Mods noch Lust? Laeuft Wachstum und Verbreitung nach Plan? Finds cool, dass ihr das macht.

What’s the deal with SESSION, Lokinet, $OXEN and LLARP
[Lokinet]( is a onion-router (like [tor](, [i2p]( implementation of the [LLARP protocol]( which tries to be a modern re-implementation of i2p. [Session]( is a private messenger (like [Signal]( built using lokinet to hide metadata. If I understand correctly they have a cryptocurrency called [oxen](, which is earned or mined by providing servers to the loki network and oxen blockchain. Imo they have these arguments on their side: - i2p is really slow and if re-implementing yields the results they claim it would be awesome - building a private messenger on top of onion-routing seems like a very good idea, since metadata is the new surveillance while it doesn't generate massive amounts of traffic per user What I worry about: - I don't like cryptocurrencies in general, they haven't yet proven that they can be used as anything but be used to speculate. - if people who are supposed to be the backbone of the onion-routing service are paid to do this I worry that in some (maybe new and still unknown) way this will weaken the network in comparison to a network run by volunteers and users (like tor and i2p). Maybe this will favor larger servers so all of the onion-routing is done in "the cloud" and none from home which in result is easier to surveil. - a talk at the yearly [chaos computer congress]( about the alt-rights online behavior titled "[Let’s play Infokrieg](" (the talk is in German, but I linked the version with english live translation) talks about lokinet and how the developer advertised it on 8chan. This is all the connection they mention though and it's pretty thin Imo. - in general I believe that cryptocurrencies don't draw a very good crowd, also - I haven't seen any reputable source advertise any of this. Not Lokinet, not session messenger, of course not their crypto coin... Conclusion: All of this isn't a big problem, if they stay a small project. But them having the fastest onion-router, [elon musk maybe tweeting about them]( and people flocking to them to "invest" might have the project gain momentum and them being the new tor or even bigger, applications built on top of it being a threat to signal etc. I think some of their tech is very cool, a fast and modern onion-router could be very important for future secure web applications, but it's troublesome - it's in the hands of people nobody knows - motivated by financial gain - coupled with cryptocurrency What are your thoughts on this? I am really interested to hear, how we should tackle this in your opinion.

It's pretty entertaining I think, takes a little bit of time to understand what's going on but there is are lots of VODs to re watch and he streams >10 hours per day lately. GTA V roleplay is something that I never thought could be interesting, but here we are and it is :D The crazy streaming hours help with boring corona times

Die Scheiss 1000 Artikel über die berliner Popup-Fahrradwege gehen mir auf den Geist
Schon wieder sehe ich einen, hurra, die Fahrradwege dürfen bleiben... Das ist aber sowas von unwichtig, ist einfach nur ein politisches Thema, die AfD natürlich dagegen und die anderen Parteien denken sich sie können sich jetzt schnell Pluspunkte bei der Bürgerin holen wenn sie so tun als wenn hier Fahrradmäßig alles gut läuft. Das gegenteil ist der Fall, Berlin ist eine der schlimmsten Städte zum Fahrradfahren und wird es wohl auch noch eine Weile bleiben. AAAAAaargh warum wird Politik durch die Medien so oberflächlich dargestellt, oder ist Politik wirklich so oberflächlich? Dasselbe mit Corona, die Leute haben langsam von den halbgaren Maßnahmen, die nur den Privatbereich betreffen die Schnauze voll. Falls am Fahrradzustand der Stadt die Konservativen schuld haben, warum rufen die anderen Parteien das dann nicht von allen Dächern, damit wenigstens allen klar wird warum diese Stadt so menschenfeindlich ist.
