not exactly, zlib sometimes has more books since it has its own uploader, but yeah generally you can use libgen, personally I still use zlib because it allows sorting by popular so I can see which files are good quality.

Edit: or did you mean the website I was talking about ? I eventually found it, it was http://peppercarrot.com/

New community: /c/tipofmytongue
I was going to ask for help with finding a site but I realized there was no community for that so I created TOMT (first time creating a community, sorry if I did something wrong). not sure how marking posts as solved would work since there are no flairs on lemmy, feel free to suggest if you have any ideas

I think the author is @werwolf@fosstodon.org, I feel like the article is targeted towards people who already know about the drama. (some of it’s mentioned in another page)

I don’t think so, I believe they already know about it just didn’t write it in the article.

maybe it depends on the ISP, I can’t access it. (if your ISP is airtel, most of these might not be blocked, not sure why but airtel tends to not block some of the sites that other ISPs do)

The point is, there are too many ads

agreed, but I don’t want to use archlinux

I mean, Wikipedia probably wouldn’t survive if the internet disappeared.

not for me, it works fine for me, you’re using libgen.is right ?

yep, I’m using this, it’s great!

actually, github is better for these kinds of things from my experience, there are so many repos that github is unlikely to notice this, on the other hand it’s easier to be discovered on smaller sites like codeberg and get taken down (happened to me).

I don’t know if forums are feasible now, I just suggest using reddit and lemmy.

do you need to confirm by pressing “yes” on every item you want to receive ? I think it was like that the last time I used it, I might be misremembering though.

I occasionally discover some cool stuff there

I hadn’t noticed it before but now that you said it, it does seem slower, maybe hosting your own or trying other instances might help.

+1, I’ve been using this for like an year.

say, why did you change the theme of your blog ?

I tried that, but I just can’t stand its UI :(

I’ve been trying to find a good reliable rss feed reader for android for a while now, still haven’t found a good one.

you could link your profile on bookwyrm, if you don’t mind 🙂

Let’s revive this sublemmy, comment (any number of) your favorite books
mine are: * Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir * Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

This is really the only decent alternative.

I guess people just don’t like brave because of the crypto stuff, and they’ve also done some things in the past like getting a fork (that removed BAT) shut down, adding affiliate links to URLs etc.

it seems (to me anyway) that almost anything related to brave that gets posted on lemmy gets downvoted quite a bit, this post is an example. (although, I may just be overthinking it.)

Bibliogram breaks A LOT though I still thank them for their service.

I’ve never been able to get even a single instance to work :(

How do I search for web pages under creative commons license without using Google ?
so Google has this [advanced search](https://www.google.com/advanced_search) option called "usage rights", I'm looking for something similar that's privacy respecting. (I'm NOT looking for image search, I know there are a lot of services for that)

how do I make my feed better ?
its filled with useless stuff like someone saying "good morning", do you just scroll past toots like that or is there a way to make it better ? like Twitter has an option to sort the home feed by recommended tweets, is there anything like that for mastodon ?

Bibliogram alternative ?
since bibliogram pretty much [stopped working](https://proxy.vulpes.one/gemini/cadence.moe/gemlog/2020-12-17-future-of-bibliogram.bliz), are any other ways to browse Instagram without an account ?
