Brkdncr,

They did not. They bought postini. Before then spam was really, really bad on gmail.

Is there any way to reverse degrowth of the niche communities on Lemmy?

Like others, I came over when Reddit was banning 3rd party apps. Many communities were being started and I wanted to help. So I chose one community to form here and try and grow. And we did! There was a time a short while in the little KC Chiefs community was in the top 100 communities on Lemmy world. I knew that wouldn’t last...

Brkdncr,

Anyone that was around while Reddit was growing will remember that there were few subreddits to begin with. I think fediverse needs that to happen before expanding.

I don’t know how to fix it. Maybe sub-feddits need to be pruned if they aren’t thriving. Maybe tags in titles would be more helpful until they have enough content to warrant their on category.

Brkdncr,

A lot of the responses are offering an all or none response. The issue isn’t OP wants to block all memes posts, they just don’t want to see them as often.

This is an algorithm/fedi issue I suspect. It would require curation.

Since fedi isn’t really about that, the only option is to downvote.

Downvote shitty memes.

Brkdncr,

$. Almost every reason for shutting off boils down to lack of financial support to keep it running.

Brkdncr,

Pay for that?

Brkdncr,

Yeah Singapore has good public transit options but it doesn’t handle everything.

Many people own cars though and the certificate is transferable and is part of the car loan, so it mostly becomes a monthly cost.

If you’re trying to show off in Singapore you have multiple cars in your own garage, including an old super car and an suv you use to drive to your boat club where you can take your boat out for the day.

[Rumor] Mass Effect 4 will ditch an open world and return to its "classic format", insider teases (www.eurogamer.net)

Corden made the claim in the latest edition of his podcast, The Xbox Two Podcast, in a broader conversation about the pros of established studios sticking to the development blueprint that made their games so special versus the cons of taking risks and innovating, only for it to instantly crash and burn....

Brkdncr,

As long as I can still make my character look like a 65 year old gender fluid meth addict I’ll play it.

How to make an MP3 player work in 2023?

If I wanted an MP3 player again, in 2023, and wanted to rip cds to it and put digitally purchased albums on it, as actual owned files (not inside an proprietary ecosystem where I pay to only listen to that track within that service) could I still do that? What would I need? I don’t own, and can’t afford, a “real...

Brkdncr,

If I wanted to do this today I would use iTunes and an old iPhone as the mp3 player. I would use an old laptop to rip, or iTunes to purchase.

Brkdncr,

Most sugar alternatives used in soda really messes with your guts.

Brkdncr,

The only thing worse than a single database server is servers poorly maintained database servers. The idea was right, but maybe the implementation was wrong.

Brkdncr,

FYI the app on iOS didnt work at all even after force closing until I attempted to log off. It crashed after that and when I closed and restarted it started working.

Brkdncr,

I manage storage systems as part of my day job. i think you would be happy with a simple direct attached storage device. You’d need a storage controller card and a storage controller. These are usually enterprise-grade items so they might be expensive. I suspect there are SATA options but SATA is pretty slow.

QNAP and Synology are decent for what they offer, if you like the idea if turning it on, setting up an account, and then having access to both native and an easy 3rd-party store with no fiddling needed then they are a good idea. You can also setup an iSCSI connection for direct-attached storage over the network.

Brkdncr,

I would trust USB to a simple single disk storage device for purposes of archive or backup, but not for production or for moderate i/o.

Brkdncr,

It’s used for out of band management. With the correct hardware items (nic and gpu) it’s called vPro. With the proper certificate and supporting infrastructure it can auto-enroll into a management service such as SCCM. It allows companies to remotely view logs, bios settings and other items. With vPro it can include a complete remote KVM solution.

You can disable it from most UEFI settings interfaces without worry of causing other issues.

Brkdncr,

120 is the lower limit for killing stuff off. Not much will live or grow at a sustained 120.

I leave mine at 120 and every Sunday it kicks up to 135 for an hour for peace of mind.

Brkdncr,

Sadly that looks more like a parts car to me, but getting it running and stopping makes for a good flip.

Brkdncr,

Might need to throttle posts from anyone to a single domain that isn’t already allow listed.

Why so many people get triggered about ads nowadays?

Wherever I go, I often see the sentiment “This website has ads, so it’s trash” pop up in conversations. And honestly I don’t quite get why. 90% of the internet has always had ads, you just scroll past them and mind your business. At least they’re personalized now so you can pick a topic you like instead of diapers and...

Brkdncr,

It’s the websites with ads that heat up my phone so much it hurts that are the problem.

At what level do ISPs control ports?

I’m aware most ISPs do not allow for port 25 to be open for email use outside of business licenses, but at what level is that controlled? Can I get around that by owning my own router? Owning my own modem or ONT? Or is this just a thing they mystically control further up the pipeline that a relative layman such as myself...

Brkdncr,

You can use a port reflector service. No ip.com might still offer it. Basically forwards anything incoming to their ip on port 25 to your ip and whatever port you specify.

Brkdncr,

I just looked they have a service called “alternative port 25” that addresses this issue.

Honestly though, once you start adding up costs for these workarounds you have to wonder if it’s easier to just get a business internet circuit, cloud security gateway, or just host the email online.
