Biden: What's happening in Gaza is not genocide
  • Okay, if it makes you feel better, we can call it premeditated mass-murder instead.

  • European Commission says Ukraine will receive first payment of revenue from frozen Russian assets in July
  • This is good news, but if I understand the article correctly, it sounds like the EU is not actually passing along the seized assets, but the interest generated on it - so e.g. a few billion per year in dividends and whatnot, as opposed to the underlying hundreds of billions they seized from Russia.

  • To my fellow Android custom ROM enthusiasts, I highly advise you uninstall and stop supporting @projectelixiros
  • I’m a iOS developer just lurking here but, are paid features in custom ROMs common? Since they’re all downstream of AOSP, wouldn’t it be possible to bypass anything like that fairly easily by just commenting out the paywalls and building the ROM yourself?

  • Pray they don't alter it any further
  • 🎶 Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me. We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot. Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho. We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot. Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho. 🎶

  • French government says Kristi Noem lied about cancelling meeting with Macron
  • Haha fair point. “M&Ms Macaroni? Ain’t he the pursident of England?”

  • French government says Kristi Noem lied about cancelling meeting with Macron
  • Why would anyone have thought otherwise? What are the odds that a world leader of a global power would meet with a regional official from one of the smallest and least politically relevant states in America?

  • Theranos fraudster Elizabeth Holmes has prison sentence reduced again
  • The timing combined with her weird sociopathic nature make it all but a certainty that her decision to have kids was entirely driven by the possibility of a reduced sentence.

  • Biden left without an easy solution as campus protests heat up
  • Isn’t it obvious, Joe?

    “While I condemn Hamas, and supported Israel’s right to defend itself in the aftermath of the attacks, the use of force in reprisal has become excessive - beyond what is justified or acceptable. So effective immediately, I’m halting all arms shipments to Israel, and calling on President Netanyahu to withdraw IDF troops from Gaza and the West Bank.”

    Problem solved.

  • China launches world’s largest electric container ship with 50 MWh battery
  • R&D is cheap when you steal it from western companies!

  • Not happening, dude
  • It’s actually Argentina and Chile, which tips that calculus in our favour given they’re friendly western developed nations.

  • Andrew Tate and brother Tristan to be tried in Romania on rape and trafficking charges
  • Definitely wise to pick an EU member state to escape the law. This guy has probably never heard of extradition.

  • The president could "assassinate" political rivals and still enjoy total immunity, Trump lawyer says
  • lol yea, even in Russia the headlines are always “person falls mysteriously out of window” and not “Putin stabs opponent in face with knife, lets out evil laugh”

  • Why are SMS messages so expensive?
  • I pay 15€ a month in Portugal for unlimited data, sms, calls etc and it even includes roaming in the rest of Europe 😊

  • It must confuse English learners to hear phrases like, "I'm home", instead of "I am at home." We don't say I'm school, or I'm post office.
  • It’s because “home” in this formation is an adverb, whereas school is a noun. You can be an adverb- I’m surprised, I’m exhuasted… - but you must be at a noun (or on, or in, or some other preposition).

  • Louisiana tells schools to just ignore Joe Biden’s new trans-inclusive Title IX rules
  • From another publication I would have said, it’s the same recycled bigotry trying to paint LGBT identities as being something wrong that needs to be cured - either a (wrong) choice, or a medical condition, etc.

    From this publication I would have expected greater care to avoid phrasing that makes this kind of categorisation.

  • Louisiana tells schools to just ignore Joe Biden’s new trans-inclusive Title IX rules
  • It’s just the same recycled bigotry of old, framing LGBT identities as either a (wrong) choice or a medical condition. “choosing the gay lifestyle”, “deciding to be gay”, something “causes” homosexuality, etc.

    And it’s done very intentionally, building their narrative that being gay/trans is something bad that needs to be cured.

  • Israeli tourists attack vigil in Cusco in support of Palestine : Peoples Dispatch
  • Imagine going on vacation to a foreign country and physically attacking the locals for something they’re doing. Nobody is forcing you to travel abroad. If you don’t like it, don’t go.

    ...and we're back!

    Sup lemmings!

    As you probably noticed, this instance was dead for the majority of last week. Sorry about that. An update to the latest version using the official method was less than successful, and the documentation less than informative.

    At any rate, the site is back up now, though I’d expect slowdowns over the next day or so as all that backlog from the fediverse filters in.

    Sorry about that!

    How do you mention a user on Lemmy?

    Is there an equivalent to doing /u/user in The Bad Place, to notify and summon someone?

    Federation not currently working with non-Lemmy instances (kbin, mastodon, …)

    Currently 👀 an upstream issue that’s preventing non-Lemmy instances from federating with us; this is preventing interacting with Kbin among other things. Hoping this will get merged in soon, otherwise I’ll probably have to monkey-patch our instance to get this working. Kbin has a large user base and so the ability for us to subscribe and participate in their communities (“magazines” in their parlance) is important to me.

    My personal favourite: Port Old Fashioned

    Do you like old fashioneds, and wine? This is the drink for you! I can't remember now where I got the idea, but I've been making them forever.

    ----

    2-3 shots Bourbon whiskey (personal favourite: Jefferson's Reserve, the gentle alcohol notes but strong wood flavours blend gracefully into the wine notes!)

    1 - 1.5 shots' worth of tawny port (don't need anything too good here but a basic 10 year Graham's or similar will do)

    1 teaspoon simple syrup (take it easy on this since the Port itself will impart sweetness!)

    1 big ass ice cube

    1 maraschino cherry

    E-mail now available

    I've set up email at the federate.cc domain today, backed by Migadu, a lightweight privacy-focused email service out of Switzerland.

    If any members would like an e-mail at this domain, either send me an email (sparky@), or DM me here on Lemmy. They're not created automatically by default, as I have to manually go do something adminny to make them happen.

    But upon request, an email @federate.cc is open to anyone who wants one.

    Some caveats:

    • This isn't Gmail, we're poor. Assume you have something like 500mb-1gb of storage in your account. Not a good place for large attachments, etc.
    • You're subject to the same code of conduct as our instances, e.g., if you start sending spam or harassment, you'll get shut down.

    Pro-tip: Self-hosting Lemmy? You can use object storage to back pict-rs (image hosting) to save a lot of money

    Just thought I'd share this since it's working for me at my home instance of federate.cc, even though it's not documented in the Lemmy hosting guide.

    The image server used by Lemmy, pict-rs, recently added support for object storage like Amazon S3, instead of serving images directly off the disk. This is potentially interesting to you because object storage is orders of magnitude cheaper than disk storage with a VM.

    By way of example, I'm hosting my setup on Vultr, but this applies to say Digital Ocean or AWS as well. Going from a 50GB to a 100GB VM instance on Vultr will take you from $12 to $24/month. Up to 180GB, $48/month. Of course these include CPU and RAM step-ups too, but I'm focusing only on disk space for now.

    Vultr's object storage by comparison is $5/month for 1TB of storage and includes a separate 1TB of bandwidth that doesn't count against your main VM, plus this content is served off of Vultr's CDN instead of your instance, meaning even less CPU load for you.

    This is pretty easy to do. What we'll be doing is diverging slightly from the official Lemmy ansible setup to add some different environment variables to pict-rs.

    After step 5, before running the ansible playbook, we're going to modify the ansible template slightly:

    cd templates/

    cp docker-compose.yml docker-compose.yml.original

    Now we're going to edit the docker-compose.yml with your favourite text editor, personally I like micro but vim, emacs, nano or whatever will do..

    favourite-editor docker-compose.yml

    Down around line 67 begins the section for pictrs, you'll notice under the environment section there are a bunch of things that the Lemmy guys predefined. We're going to add some here to take advantage of the new support for object storage in pict-rs 0.4+:

    At the bottom of the environment section we'll add these new vars:

    - PICTRS__STORE__TYPE=object_storage - PICTRS__STORE__ENDPOINT=Your Object Store Endpoint - PICTRS__STORE__BUCKET_NAME=Your Bucket Name - PICTRS__STORE__REGION=Your Bucket Region - PICTRS__STORE__USE_PATH_STYLE=false - PICTRS__STORE__ACCESS_KEY=Your Access Key - PICTRS__STORE__SECRET_KEY=Your Secret Key

    So your whole pictrs section looks something like this: https://pastebin.com/X1dP1jew

    The actual bucket name, region, access key and secret key will come from your provider. If you're using Vultr like me then they are under the details after you've created your object store, under Overview -> S3 Credentials. On Vultr your endpoint will be something like sjc1.vultrobjects.com, and your region is the domain prefix, so in this case sjc1.

    Now you can install as usual. If you have an existing instance already deployed, there is an additional migration command you have to run to move your on-disk images into the object storage.

    You're now good to go and things should pretty much behave like before, except pict-rs will be saving images to your designated cloud/object store, and when serving images it will instead redirect clients to pull directly from the object store, saving you a lot of storage, cpu use and bandwidth, and therefore money.

    Hope this helps someone, I am not an expert in either Lemmy administration nor Linux sysadmin stuff, but I can say I've done this on my own instance at federate.cc and so far I can't see any ill effects.

    Happy Lemmy-ing!

    What does it mean when all your subscriptions on a single server (lemmy.world in this case) are stuck at “subscribe pending”?

    Not sure if this is truly an issue with lemmy.world or just a general question about Lemmy, or maybe even my own instance, but this seems a fair place to start. On my home instance, for some reason all subscriptions to @lemmy.world communities are perpetually stuck as “Subscribe Pending”, and I notice that not all of the posts and content have shown up. Is this something that should “eventually” resolve itself, or is there some action I should take on my end as the instance administrator? Thanks/apologies in advance.

    Just wanted to say, awesome work and progress so far!

    Absolutely loving the app so far, and I'm impressed by the rollout speed, seems like every time I launch it, there's a new build with more feature completion. Keep up the amazing work!!
