Into the Fediverse!

Just wanted to say thanks for telling me this! Solved my issue and I wouldn’t have thought of it straight away at all.

Yeah Relay works still and is going in a subscription model

Glad you said this. People demanding large instances like this one defederate from stuff they don’t personally like are, frankly, very mislead and trying to be little dictators. That’s not their decision to make.

EXACTLY! It only benefits us because it hugely increases the exposure of the fediverse to the outside world so people who ARE interested can merely jump over. It makes the fediverse more interesting for people like me who can “live” here and access the content I want.

The exposure is still greater than the zero that currently exists. If only 1% see the stuff from the smaller instances and figure out what’s up, they’ll jump. That’s better than the current near 0. There’s not really a scenario where it reduces the activity here any further, only improves it.

Sounds crazy but I absolutely love it. There’s a market for this somewhere!

They simply should not be allowed to advertise with the fake frames IMO.

Chiming in to swap for 5600, drop the 2 case fans, and switch 3060 to 6700 XT or 6650 XT. There's games right now that REQUIRE 6 cores

Discussion: What makes your build unique?

One quirky detail of my build: it has a tiered storage system through FuzeDrive. What that means is I have an 8 TB shucked hard drive and a 128 GB SSD "fuzed" together through some old software by Enmotus that is no longer available for purchase iirc. This means the SSD acts as a cache for my huge 8 TB drive. As a result, I can...

I came to the same conclusion as you: why would people buy their stuff if they could just run an unlocker script or edit a config file to give that stuff to them? It's basically malicious DRM

Do you know if there's any statement or if it's known who did this?

IowaMan,

Brilliant insight. They probably are tracking metrics on what will encourage people to buy stuff the most too

Why are Golden Parachutes a thing?

Time and again, we see CEOs and similar executives make horrible decisions that massively damage a company both financially and in terms of reputation and the perpetrator is forced to resign, yet receives so much money as a going away present you'd think they're being rewarded for their fuck up. Why??

Another similar question: why has executive pay skyrocketed when it's exactly opposing to (most) companies best interests? Also, you could merely hire a qualified candidate from within the company who is already familiar with how things work and pay them still six figures, but not millions or billions. It seems kind of insane that one person is "worth" that much to a board.

I would like to find a way to contribute here. Longtime reader and former build team on the old reddit ship. If light touch moderation and being engaged here is what you are looking for, I'd be willing to mod.

Just upgraded to my first 240Hz display.

I've got the Samsung Odyssey G65B 32". Upgraded from a 165Hz IPS AOC AG271QG. So far so good. It's definitely much faster response time and it's so smooth as long as I can maintain the FPS high. Though mainly the colors and contrast stand out the most. I was worried about QC issues but did not notice anything out of whack yet....

What a pleasant cozy setup. How's the motion clarity? I also see it supports HDR. How does that look?

Federation is stupid convince me otherwise.

Genuine inquiry . Maybe I am not experienced enough with the various federated platforms but I am an avid user of matrix, and have dabbled in lemmy. From what I have seen is federation is on the path to decentralization but not fully there. It creates fiefdom, little kingdoms . Great yes you may find one that suites you better,...

How is the name pronounced? All-ovah like all over? Uh lova, like Chicago for a lover? Sounds like the name of a prescription drug.
