I found this video today and it reminded me of the cartons of milk we’d get all throughout K-12 in the US. Oh the lies we were told about milk and how it was “healthy”, never mind the fact that lots of students, especially non-white students, are lactose intolerant. Fuck them, though, their options …

It’s advised that you don’t use that app since it’s not open source and no one knows who the developer is. Use Lemmur instead.

It would probably be possible to embed a Matrix client into a Lemmy instance by way of Hydrogen Web or https://cactus.chat, but automatically giving each Lemmy instance user their own Matrix account tied to their Lemmy account would be much harder and would require hosting an entire Matrix instance alongside Lemmy.

Respecting the free will of fascists to spread fascist ideas isn’t good - Me, in a comment up above

I think you and I are on the same page

Yup, limiting the freedom of fascists is okay, lest they spread their fascist ideas.

Respecting the free will of fascists to spread fascist ideas isn’t good and should not be done.

And developed by people who hate the fact that you’re alive!

A comment about Lemmy I saw on Reddit. The slur filter really pulls its weight and keeps the bigots out, it was a great idea.

I’m an owner of both a Pebble Time and a Pebble Time Steel. I’ve also owned a Pebble 2 HR. Honestly for how cheap you can find Pebbles (got my Steel for $20) and their long battery life (my Steel lasts a week or more on a charge, maybe double that if it’s on airplane mode), they’re great! If you decide to use Rebble and pay the $3 a month, you can even use the dictation feature and respond to notifications with your voice! They also work perfectly with GadgetBridge.

I also used to think smartwatches were a gimmick, and tbh after owning a couple I know for sure they are, 10x so for mainstream watches like WearOS or the Apple Watch. Being able to catch your notifications on your arm and responding to them is pretty convenient, but the excitement goes away after a while. Or maybe I’ve just lost interest. I don’t even bother looking at my steps, sleep, or setting up my watch to be able to ping my phone anymore. But I’ve gotten so used to the darn thing that I’ll never stop loving it.

There was someone who participated in FOSDEM a couple of years ago and presented an open-source push notification server for Android that they were working on, but seems like the project has become stagnant. If I remember correctly, they wanted to combine it with MicroG somehow as an easy way to take push data from apps.

Here’s Drew Devault’s script and Meff’s scripts that mirror Hacker News to Gemini. Maybe it’s possible to use these as a base for creating a Lemmy mirroring service.

I always hear people praise Izzy’s repo, but I’ve always made do (due?) with F-Droid’s default repo + Fluffychat, NewPipe, and Bitwarden repos. Does anyone know of any really good apps specific to Izzy’s repo that would make it worth activating?

NewPipe is primarily an open-source Youtube client (and possibly the greatest Youtube client), but it also supports Soundcloud, PeerTube, and media.ccc.de

I’m fairly certain that Spaces DO have the ability to share users and privileges, they just don’t have to and can instead function as just a personal hierarchical list as shown in the demo. At first I thought Spaces would function exactly the same as Discord servers and rooms, but now I see that they’re way more powerful!

I saw that this was added, but does anyone know how exactly to use it in the app? I was on one instance and searched for a video on another but it didn’t pop up so I’m sorta confused

"from left to right, top to bottom:

Guest from the Future

not sure


Guest from the Future

Kin Dza Dza

probably The Witches Cave

Teens in the Universe

and I’m not sure about the last three"


It’s canon that Kermit has eaten pork so he’s not vegan :disappointed face:

Someone here on Lemmy linked to this instance and while I was browsing it I found this funny animation about copying. What are people’s thoughts when it comes to this topic?..

Human and animal bodies in the transition to a capitalist mode of production

The transition to a capitalist mode of production meant that “acquisition [became] the ultimate purpose of life” (Federici, pg. 135). So naturally, anything standing in the way of the ultimate acquisition of capital and resources had to be stripped away. The worker’s body was one such thing-turned-c…
