Have you punched Microsoft in the face today?

Why were you downvoted? Come on, people, if you’ve got something to say, say it!

You know, maybe people shouldn’t have jobs where their duty is to always change what isn’t broken.

“A new look” isn’t what Firefox needs.

Libretime? Open broadcaster? Simple stream to an icecast server?

I think there’s a few awesome options these days depending on your needs.

I’ve been using borg for awhile and it seems to work fine. Haven’t missed a beat when I’ve had to try and restore something.

I’ve seen a few notes around from people who really dislike it, though it doesn’t seem apparent why. Maybe it’s slow, but for my needs, I don’t care.

You obviously haven’t been paying attention to the militarization of your police forces.

Are you seriously suggesting that one should be as armed as the police? Are you serious?

Only in America…

I think it’s telling that when talking about videos that contain hate speech, the only item of importance was whether or not they were able to be monetized. Youtube’s unwillingness to police itself needs to be dealt with better.

The rest of the article is pretty gross, too, to be sure. It’s been clear for some time now that trying to moderate large platforms with AI is pretty useless.

Unless you’re the RIAA or MPAA, I guess. Then it’s totally sweet and awesome.

Here’s a thing to get out and do/see/enjoy (or stay home and do, too)…

They seriously called themselves Sounix backwards?



Don’t worry, things will get awesome once Rogers has bought em out.


“I have the right”? lol… here’s the thing:

You’re on people’s private systems, you have no more rights than what are granted in that space.

You are not given the right to spread misinformation in the space that I manage, nor does it appear you are given that right on lemmy.ml.

And as Travis kindly pointed out, dissenting opinion isn’t getting things removed. I’ve even left your hot air alone here.

Stop repeating yourself, I can see the nonsense you’ve already been trying to splatter elsewhere and you need to go get educated.

  1. Shut up about the H-Index. It’s bogus, unless you think that this shady asshole is somehow a higher scientific rank than Einstein. https://theconversation.com/why-the-h-index-is-a-bogus-measure-of-academic-impact-141684

  2. Like most conspiracy-theorists, you’ve grasped on to a couple of completely meaningless talking points and then point the finger at “THE MEDIA” when people start calling out your bullshit.

Just stop. It’s not the media, it’s you. You want to know why you’ve had comments removed?

That’s not a credible source. If he were credible, why is he being disciplined for ethics violations?

I’m sorry, you need to go learn a bit about the IP stack and really try hard to not spread misinformation. That was the whole point of why I replied - you’re making claims you just can’t back up with any kind of reasonable argument.

You’re being tracked while on IPv4 as it is, so please, stop with any claims that IPvWhatever is going to be any better or worse for you in this regard.

Kid, you’re stepping all over your own points. Your own words were also “…the use of NAT and NAPT which provided a certain amount of privacy.”

You missed the point about privacy extensions in IPv6.

Either way, you’ve made no point that suggests IPv6 is any better or worse than IPv4 in regards to privacy. It’s also not the point or function of IPv4 or IPv6. Your original comment about IPv6 being a privacy nightmare has no basis in reality.

Where did you copy & paste this drivel from?

If you believe IPv4 NAT gives you privacy, you’ve probably already lost. Neither IPv4 or IPv6 have privacy built in.

IPv6 nodes can (and typically do) use privacy extensions (RFC 4941) to prevent any tracking of their burned-in MAC address(es).

Your argument of vast IP space in IPv6 is actually a feature - you can change your IP address millions of times obscuring the per-IP tracking you think one must be bound to.

Dynamic MAC addresses are build in to Android and IOS, maybe read up on those (but again, IPv6 can use privacy extensions where you believe the MAC would otherwise potentially be exposed).

What about the Target tracking & bean-spilling case had anything to do with the underlying IP version?

There’s plenty about IPv6 that is less than spectacular, but privacy concerns would certainly be no greater than under IPv4.

Lol… that’s a ridiculous blanket statement. Please, explain yourself.

Gross… why can’t they just get with IPv6?

Yeah, and I do tunnel some things via VPS to my home network, but it would be pointless to try and run anything production like that. The VPS then gets a double-whammy on the bandwidth, if nothing else.

Here’s what I’ve got:

1 Gbps up 1 Gbps down No data transfer max

Incoming ports blocked.

I’ve found the same with butter over the past few years. I hope this gets backed up by other sources, but if true, it sounds like high time for better regulation of this industry - if they can’t make profit from selling a pound of butter for $5 (which most seem to be priced higher than that now), t…

Updated lemmy.ca code today

Howdy! I’ve just updated lemmy.ca from lemmy 0.9.6 to 0.9.7. More info on the changes at: https://lemmy.ca/post/2626

Interior Health is doing a bang-up communications job - we need better.

It destroys me that in the middle of this pandemic, a year in, our government bodies think that they need to control messaging like this to the point of breeding distrust. …

Updating complete! (For the moment)

It looks like the Lemmy devs are releasing fast and furiously, as even when I was updating Lemmy.ca to what was the current version this morning (0.9.5), they released 0.9.6! …

Updated Lemmur builds - 20210112

Howdy all, …

Hmm, I’m posting this as it only came up after I was looking for more on the crap the CPC had on their website yesterday. …

Testing from lemmur

Testing from lemmur, will have to try and share something in…

Happy Holidays!

Howdy all! …


Happy Holidays!

Howdy all! …


Hi all, …

Stupid churches fined for being stupid.

Why do some people insist on being so difficult about temporary rules? The entitlement is appalling…

Lemmy & small VPSes

Hi all! …

Something odd with the Lemmy rate limiting.

I have all the proxy_set_header directives in nginx, including the new ones just added in yesterday or the day before.
