I love it too - I’ve actually been teaching westerners Go for seventeen years now - but I’ve done very little playing outside of this context. I’m not very good either :p

I have created a new community as I recently saw there isn’t an existing community for go, the ancient Chinese board game of strategy. …

Almost all of the TVs from this article have been discontinued.

Not everyone has dedicated machines they want to open up to web traffic necessarily…

I wish I had discovered Disroot when I started de-googling my life. I wouldn’t be so tied to ProtonMail had I done so.

Lutim is a good libre replacement for Imgur.

Here in the US, during crises, they will often raise the price of electricity and other utilities. (sUpPlY aNd DeMaNd) The price per kilowatt hour skyrocketed and those who still had electricity had to pay out the ass for it.

I mean, slurs are slurs regardless of context; it’s pretty cut and dry. Now, if we’re looking for racist statements, that’s a whole different animal, but slurs are very simple.

I get cracking down on slurs. But “black” and “white” are not, uh, slurs, in any capacity.

Exactly. What the FUCK is wrong with native UI libraries??

Anticapitalist Projects Not Experiencing Capitalist Infinite Growth

are they dying?

Step one would be to stop destroying poor countries and forcing people to move away from them, but also to stop being racist and stop hating immigrants. (but also nation-states shouldn’t exist.)

How do you know exactly when I should be sleeping? :p

Oh, well even just reversing the order of the guys would help get this joke across. The way it’s currently put together, it looks like the MAGAtoid is speaking first and the alphachad is responding.

I do think that’s a big reason why there aren’t more people on FOSS-and-Federated (F&F, perhaps?) social media. I remember a time as well when picking an instance seemed like too much. My question was more about how to cope with and/or remedy this situation. And this isn’t just for myself, either. I feel like the Fediverse could use a little more diversity. Obviously there’s nothing wrong with programmers, but we need more other kinds of people in the Fediverse. That will also help us polish these tools.

I think you might have misread my post. I did not say “how can I replace IRL interaction with social media.” Please try again.

I’m not one for mysticism, but I actually really like this.

I’ve grown to truly loathe the word “content.” Swipe up and subscribe to my Onlyfans to learn why :3

How to cope with lack of IRL friends/acquaintances on the Fediverse?

So, I completely switched to FOSS federated social networks toward the middle of 2020. I love the Fediverse, but nobody I know IRL seems to care at all about it in any capacity, so I’m basically just screaming into a void full of other FOSSheads. How do I reconcile this? How do we get our IRL peeps …

Spotted on Diaspora today…

What are these cats I'm seeing everywhere as avatars? [SOLVED]

I feel like every third person has that same cat as their avatar. Some are like different colors and some just have an overlay or whatever but it’s the same cat. What is it??? …

Best Places to Meet New People Online?

Hello everyone. So this year has me feeling very isolated and I’m thinking about how easy it used to be to meet people online and how difficult it’s become to do so. There used to be tons of good places to meet people but internet culture has changed so much that now it’s virtually impossible. Even …

My previous PeerTube instance is down. Which one should I join?

As the title states, the PeerTube instance I had previously been using is down with no warning. I didn’t like it that much anyway. I’m looking for a good instance with anti-nazi moderation that has local content but also federates with many other instances. I’ve been thinking about framatube but is…

Is there a way to block Roku adds and tracking with my router?

Hey everyone, I’ve recently been wondering if there were any good ways to block ads and tracking on my Roku on the router level. I can’t really set up a pihole or anything like that (which would be perfect for this, I know) right now. …

Hey everyone, if you use Pidgin, the wonderful multi-protocol free and libre instant messaging client, come join me over at c/pidgin.

How to only see subscribed communities on front page?

PLEASE is there a way to ONLY see SUBSCRIBED communities on my front page? I’m CONSTANTLY seeing stuff from communities I’d actually rather like to block and I’d just like it to not be included by default…
