Same here. The learning curve is higher on Vespucci, but once you’re familiar with it it’s extremely capable!

Someone’s concern for privacy can change throughout the day or at different locations. To keep the metaphor going, they might be fine with the top being open while they’re driving, but want it closed when the car is parked.

I use Nextcloud Notes and Tasks extensively.

Notes is kind of bare-bones compared to Carnet, which is more like Google Keep, but it’s fast, syncs with its own Android app, and stores notes as regular files in your Nextcloud folder so you can use any text editor with them.

Tasks hooks into the calendar system and can sync with anything that supports CalDAV. I use Davx5 to sync it (along with my calendars and contacts) to my phone, where I use OpenTasks to actually manage my to-do list. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn’t support recurring tasks very well. I’ve sort of managed to work around that by syncing with Thunderbird, which lets me create recurring tasks in the underlying calendar data.

Not sure how you get from Fediverse people researching what server admin/moderation structures work well and which ones don’t to CIA censorship.

  • Dropped Reddit and Twitter completely. Actually deleted my Reddit account and deleted most of my Twitter history.
  • Stopped using Gmail as my primary email.
  • Went back to DVD and Blu-Ray for shows and movies I think I might want to rewatch.
  • Slowly importing stuff I’ve posted on various social media to my website.
  • Slowly moving stuff off of Google Drive and Dropbox to my local PC and/or Nextcloud.
  • Finally set up my Nextcloud server to use object storage so I can use it for auto-uploads without worrying about space.
  • Tried out a bunch of different Fediverse platforms.
  • Made more of an effort to report bugs instead of just living with them or using something else.
  • Deleted Chrome as my secondary browser and installed Vivaldi. (I’ve been using Firefox as my primary for a while.)

Moving stuff is slow because I don’t want to just copy it all over, I want to decide what to keep in the process.

Wow, imagine how upset they’d be if they listened to the rest of the lyrics!

Artificial intelligence can find your location in photos (www.npr.org)

"Like so many applications of AI, this new power is likely to be a double-edged sword: It may help people identify the locations of old snapshots from relatives, or allow field biologists to conduct rapid surveys of entire regions for invasive plant species, to name but a few of many likely beneficial applications....

Firefox, and Vivaldi for the occasional site that doesn’t work on Gecko. (They’re built on the Chromium engine, but absolutely refusing to implement this crap)

Oh geez, thinking back to the “we had it first!” wars between Opera fans and Firefox fans about tabs back in the pre-Chrome days…

“What would incentivise companies to use it over a regular website with tracking and whatnot?”

Nothing…and that’s kinda the point.

“the private enforcement mechanism” – which is essentially an end run around restrictions on what the government is technically not allowed to do itself, by heavily implying that they want something done instead of explicitly hiring someone to do it. “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?”

…decided what they want the outcome to be, and formulates some kind of argument that results in that outcome

You might say his results were…predetermined

Apparently not anymore. I have a free account on WordPress.com and I just turned it on like you said.

KelsonV,
@KelsonV@lemmy.world avatar

Looks like it is available for free, but you get a really awkward username. I just enabled it on an old WP.com blog that I have on a free account and while @kelson.wordpress.com@kelson.wordpress.com works (I was able to subscribe to it from both Mastodon and GoToSocial), it’s a bit unwieldy.

Same here. I have a few applications that I had to specifically turn on Wayland support for (Thunderbird & Vivaldi, for instance), and a lot that work just fine, and the ones I have issues with are mostly the X-only apps running on Xwayland, which tend to be less stable than they were directly under X, but there are only a few that I still use.

^&@% Private equity again…

Political organizing is a great example of something that shouldn’t be owned by this kind of firm.

(Followed by every other kind of organization. The concept of treating “business” as a set of interchangeable parts that move money in and out of opaque boxes and not actually focusing on what they do and why is massively broken IMO)

OK, I like the comment here wondering about the thermometer’s range: “things with an interesting temperature are generally uncomfortable to hold your hand next to. I’m sure there will be at least one support call because someone tries to measure fire from 1 inch away.”

Linda Yaccarino was set up to fail (www.theverge.com)

The buzz out of the Code Conference this week is, naturally, all about the disastrous performance of X / Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino, who closed out the two-day affair in spectacular fashion. Vox’s Peter Kafka, who has been going to the conference since it started in 2008, called it “the weirdest session I’ve ever seen.”...

I learned the term “glass cliff” when she was hired.

When someone named Kafka says it’s the “weirdest”…that says something!

The rest of the page? Probably. I stopped reading after the comic.
