Fork it! It's time for a Mastodon hard fork
  • The Facebook scare is absolute ridiculous. Threads integration can mainstream the fediverse. Basically everyone on Mastodon doesn't want anything to do with Meta, There's no way Threads would suck up a good enough amount of Mastodon's target audience for an extinguish to do enough damage.

  • When Trump visits a black church
  • Nice way to cherrypick the verse and remove context 🤦

    It's part of a wider account of Thomas literally seeing the risen Christ in front of him and still not believing. So Thomas insists that he touches His wounds. And this is simply Jesus' response blessing him who believes what he saw with evidence, but also blessing those who haven't witnessed the resurrection and risen Christ.

    So He blessed two groups of believers: Those who critically investigate the resurrection narrative, and those who didn't feel the need to.

    I, personally, fit into the former category.

  • When Trump visits a black church
  • I still see the tradition of men not wearing hats in church. However the women having to wear hats thing is gradually fading. Basically everyone who does it chooses to as a form of obedience

  • To give perspective on the 48k monthly active users on Lemmy, and the 4.5k on kbin+mbin, Discuit has 6787 registered users
  • Hard agree. A while ago, Feddit UK nearly lost it's domain and I was a hard advocate of carving our own identity without using terms such as "Reddit", "Lemmy" or "Federation". Basically have our unique identity. As right now all I have told about it see it as a reddit knock-off.

  • I think people in prison should be allowed to vote

    In a democracy, I don't see how their vote really matters less. Plus it'll help improve prisons perhaps.

    The UK should carry out a genocide on and towards their grey squirrels

    They are an invasive species and replaced the prettier, native red ones. I think a bounty might cause people to set up indiscriminate traps so wouldn't go there, but I think we should figure out a way to genocide grey squirrels

    What to be aware of before opening port 25 on a postfix Raspberry Pi?

    I have a raspberry pi running postfix. I Realised unless I open port 25 I absolutely cannot receive emails (I have 587 open and can send but not receive them). However I heard there are scaries online which someone could potentially send emails from your server without consent. I believe as well my ISP doesn't block port 25. Is there anything I should do right now before opening port 25, or should everything be safe enough?

    Matthew explains autism to Philip [The Chosen]

    The Chosen is a video series based on the Biblical New Testament. It does like to take a good bit of creative liberty, to make it a good series, such as fleshing out minor characters in the Bible, inventing backstories and personalities for them, many are fully fleshed characters based on some brief description from the Bible.

    One of my favourite things they've done was by representing St Matthew The Evangelist - one of Jesus's disciples and author of the Gospel of Matthew - as being autistic. I find him quite a lovable character who I can empathise with at times in the series and I'm really glad for this inclusion 🤣

    Why games on YouTube now???

    As well as being covered in community posts, ads, and shorts. I think if I looked at Youtube for the first time and it was like this, I'd delete it.

    Dubs are better than subs

    I'm not hearing the japanese voices while reading the subtitles, I'm hearing my own voice. Also too busy reading to understand it. Cannot look away either. Voice acting in most dubs is alright.

    I think live actions are different, as squid game's dub was rubbish

    The Irish Tricolour shouldn't be used for St Patrick's Day.

    The Irish Tricolour flag represents the country of the Republic of Ireland, 26 counties of the island, which in fact doesn't include the 6 counties that St Patrick mainly operated in. In fact, it can be quite offensive to many people living in the place St Patrick mainly operated in, due to a civil conflict.

    St Patrick also has his own flag - a red saltire on a white background - which deliberately represents him.

    Making St Patrick's day a festival of Irish Nationalism specific to the Republic of Ireland makes zero sense, and using a flag which only represents part of the island, especially since many Americans are also descended from Ulster Scots in Northern Ireland.

    Breeze initially shown in 2012?

    I was looking through the Minecraft wiki and found an old texture for sandstone added in JE 1.2

    !

    I thought it looked similar to the Breeze mob which is coming in 1.21

    !

    It's likely just a coincidence. But very cool. The texture never made it into the final game unfortunately.

    AI call agents on phones.

    Seriously, I'd rather either sit on hold and press buttons instead of trying to explain to an AI several times that I want it to connect me to a real person. I also have a "non standard" accent as well, so the thing probably cannot even understand me.

    A statement from Buckingham Palace:

    During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.

    His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties. Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.

    The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure. He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.

    His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.
