Dyson zone, not to be confused with Dyson Sphere. My half awake brain was confused for a bit.

I do it with scoop installer, but, it’s not perfect. sometimes, I get a warning about it being a portable install. It’s a minor annoyance for me as I’ve got good internet but same is not true in remote parts of the world. Having to download a 300+ mb installer on each minor update hinders adoption.

Libreoffice is doing great work. it just needs an auto updater on Windows.

If lawyers can’t be responsible enough to check their citations, imagine how easy it is for the general population to fall for misinformation. Just seeing a post on facebook is enough for some people to consider it a fact.

People are more concerned about privacy and adblocks are almost ubiquitous to using the internet. The companies need more data to profit than what the users are willing to provide, so they are shutting down or severely limiting API access. These API are also what bots and karma farmers use to create content and engagement on these platforms. But platforms have a hard time separating the two.

Users who are used to using these services for free (in exchange of their data) are now not happy they can’t have it their way while they limit the company’s means of profit. So they are “threatening” to leave.

Reddit is an echo chamber manipulated by bots and mods are facilitators of karma farmers and PR/marketing agencies. They’re protesting in the name of users but really are just afraid of losing that bot generated content/engagement.

I expected something more complicated demo than the robot just using the cutting machine?

I think, it’ll come and go to the google graveyard in a year or so.

Power tripping mods vs Greedy admins.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds | Season 1 | Full Episodes on Paramount Plus | Piped from YouTube
Normally this is free on YouTube if you live in the US. But with this Piped instance, you don't need to be, because the piped instances' server is located in the US, so no VPN is required

And facebook keeps all of those fake scam pages up while power hungry moderators ban genuine accounts for petty stuff.

Gotta keep an eye on the pristine toilet paper usage. It’s supposedly the first thing we’ll run out of in case of an disaster.

Hasn’t 2020 taught you anything? /s

Jack sees an opportunity with the probability of upcoming exodus on reddit. These ads are going to pop up more often as this company backed by a billionaire can’t make users join their platforms on their own strengths, so they have to create an artificial scarcity.

Seems like the issue is widespread and while some instances are affected, some not.

Github Issue on Piped: https://github.com/TeamPiped/Piped/issues/2487

you’re right. It was fixed in newpipe. https://github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe/issues/8713

The instance(piped.palveluntarjoaja.eu) shows it’s up to date, it probably got rate limited.

All videos on this insance seems that way. https://piped.palveluntarjoaja.eu.

I dug deeper and it seems like an outdated instance issue (probably using an older newpipe extractor). this was fixed in newpipe in late 2022. https://github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipe/issues/8713

Caught this is on one of the piped instance. Every video on this instance has the same warning. Piped is an opensource privacy frontend for YouTube, which uses NewPipe's [youtube extractor](https://github.com/TeamNewPipe/NewPipeExtractor).

You see this ad disguised as an article on the Intercept? so no, it’s not billionaire proof.

also as per Betteridge’s law of headlines “Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no.”

This imo, was a PR statement about their upcoming release of their sandbox environment.

Kodi on my Android TV box, I couldn’t use extensions on stremio for some reason (or I didn’t try hard enough). It’s still there and when I try to find a stream for any movie, it just returns blank.

[Game] [PC] Midnight Ghost Hunt is free for one week

no, I meant the developer of “Joey for Reddit”. He basically built a huge userbase while it was free, then bam, video ads between posts and pay to remove them.


what is “reproduction”? Can AI train on Star Wars, Star Trek, and Starship Troopers to create a new movie? We aren’t at that point yet but at current state, this is a farce.

I’m sure the enforcement will come when mega corps start feeling the negative effects on their profits. Currently, it’s mostly all mega corps benefitting from AI, so it’s not a surprise, government sides with them.

wasn’t that the developer that baited and switched his app from free to grow the base and then turned it into an ad ridden app with expensive upgrade to get rid of ads?

The irony of now reddit doing the same for him. 🤣🤣

I rarely use reddit directly. I mostly move around libreddit instances to view content and teddit to download videos.

Infinity for reddit if I really really really have to.

this is an instance. https://invidious.kavin.rocks/

mind you, the project is dead and the instances may soon follow.

Invidious is an open-source alternative front-end for YouTube. It allows users to watch YouTube videos anonymously, without creating a YouTube account and without tracking of their viewing history.

just like the lawyer that used AI to make up fake events?



I thought it was used in piracy because rar was proprietary and antivirus scanners wouldn’t scan contents inside them or something?

it also led to a lot of malware and RAT infections because people

i’m out of the loop. why were the monkey abuse stuff bs?

At first, I was wow, this sounds amazing, then I saw it’s not even available yet and due for a crowd funding campaign.

Milk-V is leaning in to the free and open source nature of RISC-V by pledging to make all hardware schematics and design files available under an as-yet unspecified open source license prior to the launch of its crowdfunding campaign

Well! Good luck to them.

Not only is the lack of a definitive fix disappointing, but the workaround isn’t great, with Microsoft stating that to “mitigate this issue, you can uninstall apps which integrate with Windows, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Calendar.”

“Integrate with windows” is very vague. doesn’t every software on Windows integrate with Windows? ㄟ(ツ)ㄏ

ya, just waking up and I was like “Codeweavers is a strange name for a company that makes wine”

two years seems fair enough. just gotta login once a year if you have to keep that account

the instance i’m using is working fine with google. the instances you were using are probably rate limited by the search engines.

This is interesting as these claims are from an ex employee. More credible than some politicians pointing fingers. Also might be a disgruntled employee trying to cash in on the growing outrage.

I hope he has some credible evidence.

what does this mean for privacy frontends like libreddit and teddit?

Facebook paid GOP firm to malign TikTok
Anyone else felt like those inflammatory posts against tiktok weren't natural? Turns out it was true.
