Congratulations to the dev team! You guys rock. I love the names of the test instances too. :)

I got some reading to do, videos to watch. Thank you for having the patients to give me well-thought-out answers and not just shout me down for questioning things a little. I’ll certainly be doing more reading up on the movements. I still have a hard time with the violence justifications, but it is what it is. It’s not really in my town, or city, not am I black either. So who am I to say. I’m going to order Huey Newton’s book tonight, as long as I can find it on Amazon. Thanks again.

Paulo Frerie’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed:

Good point, It’s not something I had considered really. I just have an issue with violence in general. I think the demonstrations at times have got a bit out of control. Maybe this is a red flag, I don’t know much from the front lines. I live way up in the woods, far from most of what is going on in the world. I have a hard time understanding how things escalate so quickly in the cities though? Help me understand as a redneck of sorts. All we see on the news, is buildings being burned, I can’t really get behind burning buildings any more than I can going around shooting an innocent person. So why is this happening? What am I not seeing in the press. Again I live pretty close to the Canadian border in an extremely tiny town. I don’t see much other than trees.

Totally agree there! Saved the video for later, got one going on my other monitor right now, a series on liberalism someone linked me to.

Well I don’t support genocide racism, sexism, etc. I feel the Anti-fascism movement from what I have seen on TV, can be pretty violent themselves. Maybe the media is making things look that way. I certainly have a distaste for the media in general, not just one network. I really like the website allsides.com, for a more balanced view. I’m open to hearing counterpoints on why my view is wrong for sure. I have friends in the Netherlands that have said very good things about Antifa, I get a different picture of what is going on here in the states though sometimes. There has been a few videos passed along to me tonight, one of which I’m watching now. Maybe someone can forward me something on Antifa that will change my mind in a more positive light. I think I agree with their message, but what I see on the TV honestly pushes me away.

I would also like to thank everyone for the well-thought-out replies! This has already been a more productive conversation than I have ever had on reddit.

I’m not really disappointed, I already knew this. I just hope we can disagree on some things without the fighting.

I really hope Lemmy stays more middle ground. I don’t feel I am right or left. I go either way depending on the issue. Voat is way too far right, and Reddit isn’t as bad but certainly goes too far left for me at times. r/politics you can’t get a word in edge wise unless you follow the herd, or at least it was that way a few years ago. I know most of you here are pretty left too, just hoping we can reach some talking points without the bitter fighting. I’m not even going to look at Parler. I know exactly what that is going to be about. I’m being as genuine as possible here, hoping nothing backfires. <3

What a great release, it’s been fun watching lemmy grow. Can’t wait to see where it’s at in the next few years.

Not sure you would call it minimal or not. I think I would, but the Nostalgic CSS library is really cool. Check it out here

Ruby, Python, Go, Rust, lisp, few others sprinkled in.

There’s also jsonfeed now too, you can read the spec here.

Personally I use org-mode with org-roam and deft in emacs. Then I store them on my nextcloud server I self host.

Jericho did multiple times for me. I can’t remember specific scenes off hand sorry.

Has anyone made a torrent for this?

Well if you’re coding in node, you should be single. ;)

They log. You can turn it off, but the question is do you trust them to really turn it off or are they just not showing them to you anymore?
