I had no idea who this guy is, so I checked his Wikipedia page. It’s insane. Here’s an example:

In January 2014, Nugent called Obama a “communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel”. That February, Nugent endorsed Greg Abbott in the Republican primary election for Texas Governor. Abbott, however, distanced himself from Nugent due to the “subhuman mongrel” comment, saying, “This is not the kind of language I would use or endorse in any way.” After being further chastised about it by Senator Rand Paul, Nugent apologized for the comment. However, when asked in April 2017 if he regretted his comments about Obama, he replied “No! I will never apologize for calling out evil people.”

This guy has issues. And that’s only one juicy little tidbit.


lol @ Gravy Seals. I’ll have to remember that one. :D


Notice how they only shot the black parts of the target.


I’m not particularly keen on directing my friends to an app that needs their phone number, is based in the US and is neither decentralized nor distributed. If the age of Signal does come about, I will not be taking part.


To quote Thor from Juniper Lee:

"Ordering pity party of one please, your table is ready. Tonights special is an oven roasted fillet of poor me served on a delightful bed of cry me a river "


Yeah, it’s not great. It’s also an electron app, which gobbles up more memory than I’m comfortable with AND last I used Wire, it wouldn’t detect my mic unless I was using the web version. Just no thanks.


Oh, I feel you. I hate Electron apps with a fiery passion. Thankfully Element has tons of clients to choose from and if I ever get my friends on it, I will NOT be choosing the default desktop app. Anyway, thanks for the info!


Yeah, there’s no perfect solution, unfortunately.

If you don’t mind me asking, what issues specifically did you encounter with Element/Matrix? I’m trying to get my friends on Element and was under the impression that it’s good enough? Haven’t used it in a while though, so I could be wrong.


Not very well. Telegram is not fully open source, E2EE is off by default, they use their own weird cypher, etc.

This thread has some very good suggestions, so if Signal isn’t your cup of tea, I’d suggest taking a look at one of them.


The Zuck keeps fucking up. Good. I hope they lose more users, they certainly deserve much, much worse.

I’m sure most people on Lemmy are painfully aware of facebook’s shortcomings, but if anyone’s interested, Behind the Bastards (a podcast) did some extensive research on Marky Mark and his mistakes. In fact, there were so many they had to do it twice! The tone of the show is lighthearted, but the facts presented are still rage inducing. I recommend Antennapod, if you prefer listening on an Android phone.

I prefer https://predb.ovh/. predb.me uses Cloudflare and as such is a royal pain if you’re a VPN or TOR user.


Was. I wanted to check it out after seeing this thread and it wouldn’t install. I found out why when I checked F-Droid on my computer. It’s gone. Only temporarily, I hope.


This looks nice. Does anyone know how it compares to Open Streaming Platform?


This happened to me a few months back. Here’s the link to the thread, if you’re interested. There are some good suggestions in there, but since I couldn’t find any on the used market, I bit the bullet and went with the Fairphone 3 instead. It recently received official support from LineageOS, too (link)!

If you want a phone with good ROM support, then you’ll probably be looking at Pixel phones and to a slightly lesser degree, Galaxy phones. Just be forewarned that the most recent models most likely don’t have 3.5mm jacks, SD card expansion slots or replaceable batteries.



Switching between Distance and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. I’m really digging how they melded racing and platforming/parkour in Distance, but I get frustrated with some stages. When that happens, I feel like playing something slow and turn-based to calm down, hence SMT:SJ.


Oh, wow. This is way worse than I thought. Fuck 'em and their slimy CEO.


Yup, pretty much. CD Projekt Red being the latest example of this.


Ah, I was not aware this was their reasoning. And uBo hard mode does look very familiar to uMatrix. I’ll give it a spin over the next week, see how it pans out.


Definitely a project worth keeping an eye on. But yeah, the landing page could use some work. I don’t like having a sign-up form immediately shoved in my face before understanding what the site I’m visiting is about.





Terraria 1.4.1 has arrived to consume even more of your free time.

Worth noting is that this includes the FNA update, which should fix most issues on Linux and Mac that were introduced in 1.4…


Any good gaming channels on Peertube?

In light of Invidious getting shut down and getting mixed results with using Freetube, I have decided to ditch or at least attempt to ditch Youtube. However, I enjoy watching let’s plays and videogame reviews and the like, but I can’t seem to find any Peertube channels with such content. …



Annoyed? Why would I be annoyed by a captcha that gets in my face every 5 minutes? I’m FINE…


Linux kernel "rapidly proceeding down an unstable path" according to Hyperbola Linux

I was looking into Hyperbola Linux, when I came across this post. In this post it is outlined why Hyperbola Linux is switching to a BSD base. A bold move, but I hope it works out for the team. …
