  • While I don't disagree with those points, I just don't think the technical aspects are that much of the issue.

  • Give yourselves a round of applause 🖖
  • And of course it shall always be the first kiss between a black woman and a white man in space on tv.

    I cracked up a bit at this. That was a great write up, I didn't know before about Desilu's involvement in making that kiss happen and their earlier milestone, that's quite cool.

  • Bisexual woman here, so I agree with you on the butts, but straight girls and gay men do exist.

    Okay feminism time. In my opinion, the reason that dude's look like potatoes in video games is most likely because of the gender disparities in the industry. There just isn't anyone that looks at men from the perspective of attraction.

  • Nuclear power explained in 12 numbers to help you understand how it fits Australia’s energy needs
  • And? We should be decommissioning and demolishing any that are upstream of settlements because of their huge risk of catastrophe.

  • ...pumped hydro is cheaper.

    It might be cheaper financially, but we've known about the huge environmental cost of dams for decades now. It boggles my mind that people suggest it in the same sentence as renewables.

    Let alone that the immediate risk to life and property if a dam bursts can be similar to that of a nuclear meltdown.

  • iOS 18 will let you hide and lock apps
  • the :/ face? that doesn't denote sarcasm. /s does

  • anti-snap stance is anti-consumer
  • The difference comes when they actively *block* installation (just like Mint does).

    Dude's anti-Mint as well. From a different comment, seems like he works (or worked) for Ubuntu.

    You know what seems more anti-consumer to me? Trash-talking your competition for making different choices to you with your FOSS they're legally allowed to re-distribute with any changes they like.

    It's almost like if people don't prefer those changes or something then they won't be popular? Oh wait, Mint is hugely popular...

  • potato
  • thanks for making me snort! happy cake day :)

  • Study finds 1/4 of bosses hoped Return to Office would make staff quit
  • I'm so sorry for all these other replies you got to a simple explanation that you personally prefer working in the office. You do you mate!

  • Study finds 1/4 of bosses hoped Return to Office would make staff quit
  • Did you get lost and stumble into the wrong community or something my friend? Could you maybe dial it down from 11? Jeeze.

  • Linux really has come a long way
  • Let's get even more technical with MacOS X then. Which, btw, doesn't exist anymore as macOS 11 was released in 2020 (tho it still maintains the BSD-legacy in the same way Windows 10 does the NT legacy). It is based on the NeXTSTEP operating system from NeXT Computers, who Apple bought in the 90s to famously also bring Steve Jobs back into the fold. The initial release of NeXTSTEP occurred in 1989, pre-dating Windows and Linux...

  • Linux really has come a long way
  • You should check out what the Asahi Linux project has been able to do with the ARM Macs already, it's pretty impressive.

  • Photoshop Terms of Service grants Adobe access to user projects for ‘content moderation’ and other purposes
  • Oh thanks for the heads up, I wasn't aware! I'll have to check it out when it drops :)

  • The only one that seems like a FOSS zealot here is you my friend...hope you learn how to be kinder to folks during conversations.

  • Vimms Lair is getting removal notices from Nintendo etc. We need someone to help make a rom pack archive can you help?
  • The "user-agent" part of the script is the same as a browser's user agent. So it's trying to emulate a common user so the site doesn't know it's a script, and there's not a more common user than a Windows one, so it's lying about it.

  • Photoshop Terms of Service grants Adobe access to user projects for ‘content moderation’ and other purposes
  • There are plenty of people who need a better editor than GIMP considering how long it's gone without a major refresh (this isn't a whinge it's been over a decade). For anyone that actually cares about their sanity there's Krita, that actually tries to build a program for professionals.

    Edit: Let alone Krita can actually be used by schools, while GIMP isn't because of the name.

  • so fetch rule
  • Is there a wheel on both sides? 🤔

  • 'More in common with the Taliban': Outrage erupts over state GOP's anti-Pride vitriol
  • Except your "logical conclusion" missed the most important part of their comment. Here, let me fix it for you:

    That all expressions of sexual desire ("between two consenting adults") are expressions of love, that all expressions of love are equally valid, and that no expression of love should be repressed.

    I agree with this statement, and I think most people would. You're right as well that almost no one would agree with your thought experiment, as it opens up the argument that rape and sexual assault are "expressions of love" when they very much are not. I don't think that was an accident on your part though, considering your account is less than a day old and you decided to come straight to an lgbtq community and participate in the manner in which you have.

    Oh no, I guess I'm a hedonist ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • This feels like an overreach by the admin...

    I was banned from for “personal attacks” for 3 days because of calling someone a “piece of shit” after they called me a “cunt”. The comment calling me a cunt wasn’t removed and the user hasn’t been punished at all by the admins.

    The comments in question:

    ! modlog:

    ! !

    In the interest of full disclosure, this is my other comment that was removed:


    And here’s the comment of that user I was referencing, in the Blahaj modlog after it was removed:


    This feels like an overreach, especially when the admin clearly didn’t feel it was important to punish their own user for “personal attacks” in the same thread.


    it’s just the rule thing to do

    please don’t start shit in the comments, i’m too disabled to care


    [Bug] App Icons

    Hey friends, I see you just pushed another test flight build, cheers for all the new updates. However, I just tried changing the App Icon and it doesn’t work at all, just stays on the default one. I tried a bunch to see if it was just one of them glitching out, but none of them work.

    Can we defederate

    It’s just an instance of reposting reddit links. These showed up in my All feed sorted by Hot even though there’s zero interaction. It just feels like spam.


    [Bug/Feature Request] Hide Downvote Button

    I’m on an instance that has downvotes disabled, and I’m wondering if we could add an option to hide the downvote button from the UI when the signed in instance has it disabled. I’ve changed the swipe so it doesn’t have the downvote, but it still shows up in the feed.

    As well it could be nice to have a setting for an alternate to the downvote swipe so that auto-changes depending on instance as well.


    [Feature Request/Bug] Downvote Button

    I’m on a server that has downvotes disabled. I’m wondering if we can get an update that hides the downvote button/slide when it’s disabled? I accidentally press it 2-3 times per day and the error dialogue can be frustrating. I was thinking there could be an option for what to replace the ‘slide right to downvote’ shortcut with when it’s hidden. Such as share or copy link.


    [request] Local Instance Link Setting

    So at the moment, when you share a post, you get a link to the post on the instance the communities on. Obviously, you aren’t always sharing links with people that are also on your instance, so this behaviour is usually fine. But I have a few friends on my local instance, so it would be nice to be able to link them directly. Maybe having the options be Local/Remote/Ask, with a little options list each time if people want that.

    I got this tattoo for myself the day I was diagnosed with MAIS

    It's a personal mash-up of the Agender, Intersex and Transgender symbols, and a little bit of inspiration from dog desexing tattoos. I'd been questioning since late puberty if I might be Intersex, I never grew an Adam's apple and hardly any body hair despite family genetics. I came out as trans femme non-binary in my early 20s, but it wasn't until the third doctor I saw for hormones that questioned if I might have an intersex condition. The first doctor I saw never questioned that my T was well below the male range because I wanted to start HRT anyway. But he also still put me on T-blockers which have some awful side-effects, including dropping my T to completely zero. Thankfully I'm off those these days and estrogen alone keeps my T where it needs to be.

    The last test that she ran was for sterility, so the day I got that result was when I got my official diagnosis. I'd never really wanted kids of my own, and didn't worry when starting HRT, but it still really shook me to learn that I'm not able too. Hence, I dropped into my local tattoo parlour with a rough sketch, because the adrenaline and pain from that helped me deal with my emotions in a more healthy way.

    Anyway, hi, I'm Norah and that's my story :)


    Retro Lemmy BBS in Windows Terminal

    So the how-to I promised in my last post:

    1. Install the neonmodem package under your default WSL distro. I'm using Debian. You've got to move the executable to your /bin/ folder.
    2. Go to your Windows Terminal settings and click on 'Add a new profile'. Duplicate your default profile.
    3. Rename the profile to 'Neon Modem Overdrive'. You can download the favicon from
    4. Under 'Command line' you want to change it to show as below. This will launch it within it's own tab, and will close out when you quit NMO. C:\Windows\system32\wsl.exe ~ --shell-type login neonmodem
    5. Under 'Additional settings' at the bottom, click on 'Appearance'.
    6. I'm using the 'Vintage' colour scheme, and have the 'Retro terminal effects' setting enabled for those crispy old scanline vibes.

    Neon Modem Overdrive in WSL

    I spent this evening playing with Neon Modem Overdrive and ended up getting it set up as it's own profile in Windows Terminal. That way I could give it it's own profile, including the retro screen effect. Will comment tomorrow with a guide :)


    Tab Bar looks great

    I’m not sure if my feedback in my last post made a huge difference, but thank you for implementing stuff like the small red dot for inbox and changing things up. I like the new inbox icon a lot, and thank you for the setting to toggle off the username. Just updated to the latest build and the avatar in the tab bar looks great!

    Forejo (Gitea fork) Working on ActivityPub Federation

    Federated repository hosting feels like a perfect use of the technology. Microsoft have been training their closed-source AI on the open source code they host on GitHub. Moving to a private instance of a software like Gitea means you're disconnected from the wider community, and the benefits of others working on your code. I'm excited to see this feature released, we may even decide to host an instance for the community.
