I love this wild west phase of the Fediverse! Feels like the good ole days of the Internet. Onwards!

Nowhere near an expert on the subject, but I wonder if a Raspberry Pi will suffice?

Okay, but can you let me know what it means after you get back?

Added .webm support to the image viewer and image peek

This, along with the other image viewer fixes is a massive quality of life upgrade! 🙌

ELI5 what entry plasma is, and why it’s a big deal? Please, and thanks!

Nothing groundbreaking here, but it’s good to confirm that studies continue to support the theory that mushrooms help with treatment-resistant mental health issues.

It was also good to read that double-blind studies have still not found any noticeable effects of microdosing, which was my experience as well. I believe the placebo effect is probably causing people to attribute benefits to it that it might not be responsible for.

The more we study psilocybin, marijuana, etc, the more we can progress past the decades of harm caused by prohibition.

Usually someone who has obsessive behavior has something in their life that they’re not settled with. The brain sort of “gets stuck” trying to redress the imbalance of the unmet need; the coping behavior (in this case the trashy shows) doesn’t actually fulfill the need, but the brain’s still latched onto it as what might help if you just get enough of it, so the consumption grows out of all proportion.

Wow, this struck such a chord with me. It suddenly highlighted periods in my life where I’ve obsessively consumed (media, substances) with a feeling of no control, and those were often times where I was struggling with an underlying (often unrecognized) issue.

Right? If I so much as accidentally look at a screen for a minute hours before I sleep, I toss and turn forever trying to go to sleep

I’ve done this every time I’ve looked for a job. If it’s the kind of company that would snoop on my browsing history and cause issues, it would just have motivated me to look harder 🙃

I’m speaking from my 20+ years of experience in tech, so this advice might not apply anywhere, but I’ve found the fastest way to keep increasing your salary is to switch jobs every couple of years. I usually got bored of a job in a couple of years anyway, so this also helped prevent burnout. Additionally, switching jobs at leisure like this meant I could negotiate new salaries harder at the new place and didn’t need to try and change jobs during an economic downturn or a bad job market.

Oh, and I’ve always regretted staying on in a company too long once I get the itch so I’d recommend starting a hunt as soon as you think a change might be good instead of waiting till you start hating your job!

This is why Lemmy needs to keep tweaking it’s feed algorithm. I understand why many people rightly have a distaste of social media algorithm fuckery, but Lemmy doesn’t have some of the same bad incentives that an ad driven site like Reddit or twitter might have. A better algorithm will help Lemmy grow and surface interesting posts organically.

The recent feed change to boost smaller communities in 0.19 is a good start, and not showing too many posts in a row from the same community will be another welcome change.

Seconding! They taste pretty decent

Surprisingly I still quite like the taste of Corona, Heineken 0, etc!

Also on Reddit being a poweruser meant that you could probably sell/loan your account to shady advertisers, which isn’t as much of a problem here since the Fediverse isn’t monetized by ads.

Additionally, I think power users are a problem if they’re just blindly spamming posts without engaging with the community, not so much if they’re just organically filling the void with posts.

I <3 lemmy’s prolific posters. o7

That is actually an excellent point! I’m imagining a Lydia from Skyrim who would actually comment on your actual quest progression without just resorting to canned responses.
