“It’s a huge Rube Goldberg machine slapstick custard pie clown car, where each custard pie triggers three more custard pies. A clown’s tie pops up, causing three other clowns’ ties to pop up. Several tons of organic cow manure fall from above. The clowns stick their heads up out of the poop, proclaiming how clean they are and what a mess everyone else is.”

Love the imagery.

I’m assuming these are all on one strip. Is the analog on the right a separate channel, or there to determine loudness or timing? Not sure how the analog translates to actual sound.

Mastodon. Privacytools.io instance when it still existed.

GrapheneOS on a pixel 4 here. Works great. Most apps from fdroid

Man, this drama keeps on going. Just when I thought it was dead. Funny thing is, I’m only on Lemmy because I found mastodon on privacytools site.

Any old gopher users care to share their earliest experiences?
I've been delving into Gemini protocol and gopher quite a bit lately and came across a good historical dig about gopher by ~szczezuja and wanted to find more. Love to hear what it was used for and the community it had, especially in the 90s. I feel the community is different these days. Source on gopher: gopher://sdf.org:70/1/users/szczezuja/novice

The only thing about self hosting is recruiting people otherwise you’re posting to an empty room. Sorry I don’t have a suggestion but unless you really want to self host to learn I would find a server that suits you first then maybe peel some folks off to your own server.

In all honesty, this is what I thought of when it hit the news. Look! Inflation!

This is from 2020, I might have to look into whether they abandoned it in favor of ungoogled chromium

Well done. +1 for posting on Gemini

I like Njalla. Pay with crypto, and privacy respecting.

As my first distro back in the 90s, Slackware has a special place in my heart. Glad to see it’s still being developed, and that the website hasn’t changed in >20 years

I ended up going with njalla. Quite simple and they take crypto. For the record they do offer Dynamic DNS.

I just mean they are trustworthy with my info and aren’t difficult to deal with

Thanks for the insight! I’m interested in how sr.ht turns out.

Privacy respecting domain registrar / host?
I did a quick Lemmy search and didn't find much. Are there any suggested domain registrars that aren't evil? I'm mostly looking for domain name and not hosting right now but won't exclude them. This would be my first domain so I'm new. I saw njalla, banhof, and 1984 web hosting. Are these good, or any other suggestions? Edit: DDNS would be a plus

There’s a way to save the page because its just JavaScript and enough puzzles until 2024 apparently. There are clones but the fun part is everyone competing on the same puzzle.

It doesn’t feel like I’m shouting into a hurricane.

I too hate this trend. Zoom and unzoom. I do like the environmental savings but something is lost.

Lagrange browser pre-release for Gemini protocol
Highly suggest looking at this if you are interested in using Gemini (protocol) on Android. Very polished, seemingly feature complete. With Ariane gone, might be your best bet - Deedum is good but this has it beat.

I think there’s a direct apk. That’s where I got it

toPrivacy@lemmy.mlTox Chat

Thanks for the insight! No offline messages is a big drawback, however aTox from Fdroid seems to have the service running all the time unless you kill it. Battery drain aside I think this could help. No multi device support is a big one though.

Yeah Gemini is cool. Big gopher hole right now for me.

toPrivacy@lemmy.mlTox Chat

So besides the management you’re saying the software itself could be viable?

I've seen a lot of talk about privacy minded chat clients on here but a search did not bring up Tox. I have been delving into the Gemini protocol ( https://gemini.circumlunar.space/) and a few folks there have listed Tox for contact. Anyone have thoughts on this? It's encrypted, peer to peer, FOSS, and requires no signup.

I believe in bit rot. Technology stops supporting old tech and data is lost.

High chance a lot of stuff on the internet is lost forever, given enough time.

I just spent quite a bit of time on this site reading up. Looks interesting, but the android client doesn’t exist anymore (?). Still interested though

Got my family hooked a week ago. Don’t get the apps, just use the website. Here’s how to play the past games: https://metzger.media/games/wordle-archive/

Not corporately owned and thus I assume I am less of a data point for ad revenue.

Lol good one. I mean, how official are you then? What are your qualifications over anyone else on the internet?

Not shit talking Here, just playing devil’s advocate for the sake of argument that everyone has their own facts.

So then who’s facts are fact-facts?

Do you think companies are tracking you in the fediverse and tying it to your larger ad profile?
I'm sure it's happening but if the fediverse gets big you can bet your car that they will deanonymize you in the fedi.

Is there a privacy focused mastodon instance similar to what privacy tools had? I
I miss that little niche community. Also not really interested in the privacy guides matrix server - I like the microblogging format vs chat.

This might be obscure, but I liked playing cribbage on my phone before I started using fdroid. Is there an ad-free version somewhere?

Is Telegram FOSS legit?
I feel like someone tooling with a secure messaging app makes it less...reliable that its secure, despite yanking google play parts out of the code. Thoughts?
