V699,

I logged on and was like wtf because the site still works. Thought my phone was hacked heh

V699,

Self imposed gatekeeping. Damn that's real

V699,

This is my biggest fear. The hidden weakness of the fediverse is that the largest implementation gets to set the rules of federation

V699,

I used to run arch but then went back to Ubuntu. Arch is a good operating system. Don't get me wrong. My system has been borked a few times because of arch maintainers and not my own actions.

Lemmy.ml is blocking all requests from /kbin Instances (kbin.social)

I discovered yesterday evening that Lemmy.ml is blocking all inbound ActivityPub requests from /kbin instances. Specifically, a 403 'access denied' is returned when the user agent contains "kbinBot" anywhere in the string. This has been causing a cascade of failures with federation for many server owners, flooding the message...

V699,

this is one thing I feel like bluesky got right. it's decentralized but "feels" like a monolith

V699,

I've seen people talk this way about lemmy on a kbin magazine heh

V699,

the at protocol is federated under the hood. they just use data brokers so it's more centralized, but it's still decentralized in that you can run your own data broker and communicate with the network. i feel like they get the best of both worlds

V699,

I just installed. Very sleek looking. good job.

V699,

I boosted but also wanted to comment for visibility

V699,

People over complicate federation. I write federated software so lemme break it down. Federation just means data sharing. When you post something on a federation enabled website it sends a copy of your post to everyone who follows you and tells their service to store your data in their database in addition to their own data. What this means is that you can't just blow up a server to shut it down because everyone in the game has a copy.

V699,

lemmy.world is a server. When you post to communities on lemmy.world, each user that has an account on a different server that is watching that community gets a copy

Mixed feelings about giving money to houseless people

So, to get this out of the way, I'm a cisgender white man from a well-off family in a fairly affluent town. I'm making this post because I want to hear perspectives from those who are different from and likely significantly more knowledgeable than me. (Literally as I was writing this post, I came to the epiphany that I should...

V699,

Even if you have money unless you have a job housing is hard to get. I'm currently living out of hotels because I'm unemployed and no one wants to rent to me.

V699,

Kbin is a good ui. Lemmy has good data.

V699,

Kbin has features around filtering and sorting built into the engine that you can't fix with a Lemmy reskin. I know this because I wrote one lol

V699,

All kbin microblog posts have to be to a magazine. The "profile" magazine is called "random"

V699,

now i want a community that just posts the newest links from every community it knows about across the threadiverse
