Decided to post anyway as I felt I needed to set the record straight and this was the article available.

Latest information seems to suggest it was a stray anti-air missiles from Ukraine. Very unfortunate, very awkward.

How long until mainstream media starts talking about Mastodon as well? Goddamn European Union has an account in the network already.

I’ve been playing bots pretty much exclusively for a few years, so this excludes me. Either way, it’s a nice gesture considering TI battle pass is usually extremely greedy times for hats in general and I tend to take a break from DotA because of it for the duration TI.

I’ve been meaning to continue learning FF XIV. It does however seem like finding a group that doesn’t use Discord is pretty much impossible, and I’m in the process of deleting my account there. Maybe I’ll power through the story and then quit.

“We have no allies including Canada, UK, Israel and Australia with such a unique security partnership as the Saudis, providing them with ownership and local manufacturing capability of our most sensitive strategic weapons,” he said, adding that the arrangements began in 2017, under the Trump administration.

Just the tip of the ice berg with how much the community is going to be able to run away with Steam Deck. The more time passed, the more inadequate other hand-helds will start to feel like when the community can extend the device’s feature set simultaneously with Valve. Sky’s the limit.

For some reason Lemmy wasn’t able to get the full title and it ended with “Will it force Apple to kill”. Guess it would’ve been funny had I not caught it.

I can’t believe Putin and the gang stand victoriously on stage, chanting “Russia! Russia! Russia!” as simultaneously they lose yet another key city and their “operation” is in the deepest shit it has ever been. This in addition to the hilarity of annexing territories they don’t even control yet.

There are some aspects about these retro shooters that you really don’t see in modern titles.

“I know your position on the conflict in Ukraine, the concerns that you constantly express,” Putin said. “We will do everything to stop this as soon as possible.”

A bit telling.

While very interesting, I wonder if this belongs in c/news?

Might be time for me to get my second RMA done now.

It’s not just the whataboutism. It’s the deliberate mischaracterization of Finnish involvement in WW2. But the fact that Finland did fight alongside Nazi Germany against the USSR, even if for very different objectives, is enough to form an effective propaganda bludgeon.


Strongest military alliance on the planet.

Russia as an enemy

Starting a land war in Europe is going to make Europe treat you like a threat.

more danger of conflict

See Ukraine.

The past 30 or so years has been slow movement towards NATO so that if shit ever hit the fan, Finland could join pretty much immediately. This in conjuction with building self defense capabilities that would make an invasion - specifically by the Russian army - incredibly expensive.

In the end, the decisions to not join NATO and then to join were both done on national security grounds, and not for some sort of ideological stance. Finland’s just shedding the remaining bits of finlandization now.

I feel like there could be a button to simply sign up to a random instance from a curated list.

The site could essentially offer an easy (default) path that would tell you in the simplest possible terms (preferably with pictures) what Lemmy is and enough about federation that the user is aware that it’s normal to have multiple web addresses, they all just access the same network. It would then offer two buttons, one would take the user immediately to a recommended instance, the other would fork them to the “advanced” path, allowing them to pick an instance with all the bells and whistle options and access more detailed information about federation etc.

“Sign up to a recommended instance (server)” and “learn more first”/“advanced options” buttons, perhaps?
