How to transfer files over network preserving the xattrs?
  • forces me to reenter the credentials frequently

    Can you explain what your need is for copying files this frequently? Is this for backups? Do you always want the two sides to stay in sync? If so, something like a distributed filesystem such as gluster/ceph/etc. might work better for you.

  • Techlore - Unsubscribe
  • Agreed, that is a good compromise IMO. I know people will still disagree and say "the statements they made with full control are biased" but whatever, can't please everyone. I think those types of people don't want any corporation to be involved in anything in the whole world and they have extremely unrealistic expectations of people and how one should live.

  • Bas Schouten: "If you are 'completely anti-ads' (i.e. even if their implementation is private), you probably use an ad blocker. So are unaffected by this." - Mastodon
  • I think they believe it's not anti-privacy, but a lesser of two evils.

    Mozilla/Firefox simply can't exist without ads. Google same thing. So why would they actively contribute to their own demise by declaring war on ads?

    Instead they chose a compromise that still allows ads but in a more responsible/private way. And you can still turn it off. Sure it should have been opt-in, but I think most people wouldn't use it then and we're back to the same problems.

  • I don't think the majority of people would agree with your stance on this.

    the merest hint of a bias kind of invalidates any advice they give

    One could make the argument that the entire point of all of these privacy guides and recommendations... is bias.

    Also I bet many of the more mainstream users want to know about partners like proton and synology... and I think putting that at the very end of a video is quite a fair way to do that and already goes way above and beyond what everyone else is doing. Basically I think you're being extremely unreasonable.

    403 on API endpoints

    Tried to use several different API endpoints as described in the link, but they all return 403 with a cloudflare "Just a moment..." html reply. Even tried copying an existing jwt token from a working logged-in browser but the same thing still happens.

    Any idea what I could be doing wrong?

    curl -v --request POST \ --url \ --header 'accept: application/json' \ --header 'content-type: application/json' \ --data '{"username_or_email": "redacted", "password": "redacted"}' ... < HTTP/2 403 ...

    <!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en-US"><head><title>Just a moment...</title> ...


    Some comments not appearing?

    I am noticing that some comments, which are coming from users on other verified (via /instances) federated instances, do not show up on a post. For example:

    Does not show this comment on it:

    Any ideas why? I checked the modlog and the comment wasn't removed, and their post history to me does not look like someone that is likely to be banned from the instance, so I'm not sure what else it could be.

    Is there a way to view the frontpage of another server, or get an RSS feed of another server's single community?

    My lemmy account is on the instance but I use newsboat for RSS reading of some communities, along with browsing the local homepage of and some other instances in a regular browser. Is there a way to do either of these things from the instance so that I can easily comment on posts without having to manually locate the same post by browsing to /c/[email protected] on my own instance?
