Computers are neat. Burritos are good.

Question about using default router and modem

Is using the router and modem my cable company provided for my internet putting my privacy at risk? And if so, I have heard of openWRT routers but it seems like there’s quite a bit of a learning curve with that but even if I got one would I need a non cable company branded modem as well? Any specifically that anyone here would...

Hey, I know you!

Kbin has a questionable track record of ignoring input from its users and also going offline for a day or more at random. So I created an alt account on Lemmy.

Now you have something you can use to safely stare at the sun

The 10 people who would’ve voted for him are very upset

Making money and having people love you without being a total dog shit company. What a concept.

OP you said the quiet part out loud. We aren’t supposed to bring this up because it’s apparently a very touchy subject.

I’m not one to knock a developer on their software. Making things like kbin are complex and they certainly take effort to maintain and improve. That being said, these are my complaints about the management of kbin:

Why is there hardly ever any feedback from Ernest about why kbin is down? It just comes back up and that’s the end of it, until the next outage. A link to an explanation, or detailed banner message, or a schedule would be nice, assuming that these outages are scheduled.

Why has Ernest insisted on being the only developer to work on this? This creates a potential “single point of failure” situation.

None of the git issues on Codeberg seem to get triaged or responded to.

Ernest rarely responds to DMs on kbin.

At this point, I think I’m just going to create an alternate Lemmy account to avoid these blackouts.

Where are the warnings? If they’re in some particular magazine that maybe not every user is subscribed to, then this is a bad practice.

Cool, and I respect that. And I respect Ernest for what he does and he doesn’t owe anyone anything at all. But if you open source a thing and then almost completely ignore your user base, it’s just a bit disappointing.

Congrats! What car? Will you be letting the Stig drive it?

Just in time for a potential second Trump presidency. Let’s make sure we have a bunch of cutting edge nuclear shit ready for him to use, steal and/or sell if he takes office. Great!
