Looks like Western propaganda has been effective!


I clicked on this expecting some schizo text or something obviously wrong, but I can’t think of a good refutation. Nice thought!

Edit: You still have to emulate the physics/etc which would take an insane amount of computing power (as per our current theories, it would take a computer the size of the universe to simulate the universe). Also, if it were a simulation, what would stop sentient life from independently forming within it? The conclusion that it’s a “single person simulation” doesn’t really check out


snap/ folder in the home directory is so disrespectful. I absolutely despise these apps that think they’re “too good” to follow proper xdg standard


The sandboxing issue is actually an important one that is being figured out at the xdg-protocol level. It affects Snaps, Flatpak, and any future goal of being able to run user-space apps in an environment more like Android or iOS, where it prompts a permission asking to access certain files/folders/cameras/etc on your device.

(If you don’t like that idea, don’t worry I’m sure you’re not alone and there will always be distros that follow the current status quo of “give everything”, but it’s a cool feature to have)



They broadcast all their notifications with priority set to 0, which overrides Do Not Disturb and custom notification filter settings.

Put less kindly, the developers are arrogant fucks. This reason alone is enough for me to package apps on Flathub.org.

(Play Runescape? Check out the 2009 emulation available as a Flatpak!)


I’ve seen all the videos. Tl;dr Russians are surrendering, a non-surrendering Russian pops out and shoots at the Ukrainians, video stops, next video shows all the surrendering Russians are dead.

Legitimately shooting in self defense is fine, but the key thing to note here is that the surrendering Russians appear to have been executed. The aftermath photos show they were in the same position as when they were alive, unarmed, and lying face-down. Regardless of whether the surrendering Russians knew it was a trap, it’s quite evident the surrendering Russians were executed.

Article 8b (vi), which says, “Killing or wounding a combatant, who, having laid down his arms or having no longer means of defense, has surrendered at discretion” is a violation of the laws of international armed conflict.

I definitely expect this case to be investigated




It’s true, if something is closed source there’s no way to verify it’s secure, and if it’s not secure, it’s not private.


I would have switched to Vivaldi years ago if the whole thing was open source, but there’s no way in good consciousness I can support a closed source browser



History shows people do the exact opposite.

Ehhhhhh… You don’t hear about the cases where the aggressors win


Really hoping this doesn’t get NATO’s involvement.

Ukraine fighting off Russia with solely financial support was a message to the world to not declare war on other countries. If the goal is less war, NATO going to war is obviously not a solution.


Doesn’t help your news link came out before the missile was known

And for the cynical, Bill Gates - As much as he hurt Linux and FOSS - has done a tremendous amount of help in the world through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation


In a six-month experiment, people who received cash transfers of $10,000 generally reported feeling happier than people who did not receive the payment.

Lmao


You know all the laws of France, and know you haven’t broken them? Damn, I’ll call you instead of a lawyer next time


People were recommending SimpleX as an alternative messenger that’s encrypted-by-default, but falls back to SMS when the other person doesn’t have it

It feels like upvotes don't have enough weight in the algorithm, as the order is almost always newest-comments-first

What did the Viet people ever do to you, @yorma?

Vietnamese people must be pretty passive if you have to go all the way back to 2019 to find a case of organized crime.

What are you glad you did before you died?
"debated more NATO shills/tankies on Lemmy" probably won't be on that list

This kind of explains the teeter-totter you see in comment sections, especially on posts that are a few days old but still on the front page thanks to Lemmy's algorithm. It looks like, surprisingly, Lemmy.ml has not turned into an echo chamber like all the other alternatives did. Maybe we got Federation to thank for that? 🇨🇳 🇺🇸
