This seems to be the case right now, yes.

That was the original idea of IPFS, no? Just that they pivoted now to trying to sell you filecoins :(

I see, well that is one risk less then. I guess with automatic down-scaling in pict-rs 0.4 it will be mostly solved as there will not be a bunch of 5mb direct uploads.

Edit: well thumbnails at least are definitely cached, larger images too, I just tested it on slrpnk.net Edit: odd, but not all of them. Something is strange… Ah I think I know what is happening… actual user uploads do not get cached, but images from linked websites do, even if the origin is a federated instance. But those website images are usually quite well optimized.

That sounds promising. Any idea when 0.4 will be released?

Object-storage on large cloud providers is not an option for me for various reasons (privacy, legal etc.).

How much of that is cached from federated instances though? I can hardly imagine a low-traffic community like that uploaded 1.6GB of their own images already. If it is mostly cached then that can increase very quickly as new users subscribe to additional communities on other servers.

Where solarpunks organize for a better world!

Lemmy Pict-rs storage requirements?
I might take over one of these one-year-free hosted Lemmy instances on my server infrastructure, but I read several times now that Lemmy's image hosting system Pict-rs is using a lot of storage quickly. The server I could run this on is limited to 32gb ssd storage with no easy way to expand it. Is there some way to limit the image storage use and automatically prune old images that are not user or community icons or such?

I wonder if this has a similar effect on older intel HW… would probably help with Vulkan using emulators.

Microblog.pub a minimalist ActivityPub server
Kinda nice that it is also accessible via Gemini it seems.

Yeah, they have a railway system already. I used it a few years ago. Nice sleeper cars with some soviet nostalgia style… but it is really slow even by “slow rail” standards so an upgrade is probably warranted.

Yeah, I hope there is an easy way to also add Steam Bigpicture mode from this launcher. Sadly the KODI plugin for that has problems, but this looks like an excellent replacement for KODI.

Without having been involved too much in the community I would guess it is a factor of two things: a general move towards chat based discussion and that fediverse tools have matured enough that people can dogfood them instead of using an external non-federated forum.

Yes it uses Astericks internally an you can hook that up to any voip service or even your own land-line or GSM modem. But to be honest the setup is quite involved and only for advanced sysadmins.

Good to know. Maybe it is possible to store user and community avatars separately from other user uploads to avoid such problems in the future?

Any idea when the broken image problem will be resolved?

Yeah, I played it for a while, was fun.

If you want some similar rogue-like FPS games check out the Ziggurat series. Very similar.

Also cool, but with a rhythm twist is BPM: Bullets Per Minute.

Any thoughts on why it has waned? Maybe it would be better to analyze that first?

Its all open source, you can self-host it. But I agree, it is more useful for US or Canada based users given the limited selection of country codes.

tl;dr? If you ask questions don’t expect people to first watch lengthy videos.

Again… same meeting. Did you only read the first 3 paragraphs?

It doesn’t matter if the original meeting took place or not, the article is mainly about all the people that contacted this author after he published the original article in 2018.

I was a bit confused as well at first, but I think later in the article it becomes clear that the same meeting is ment and the main point of this article is to describe what happened in the years after.

According to the dev it will be possible to enable pro features on self-hosted instances once the sync server is open-sourced.

Yeah, and they get really offended if you tell them that…

Made this with the Stable Diffusion AI “Pikachu as corgie” was the prompt:

The entire shtick of this is that the server communication of it is e2e encrypted. If you don’t want server syncing why are you even considering this?

Apparently they also plan to open a self-hostable sync server this month.

The problem is that this kind of class reductionist analysis is completely blind to the negative and exploitative results of the work of these workers. Painting then as victims of capitalism, when they are the same time also active perpetrators of it is actively detrimental to fighting global capitalism.

Yes and a terrible one as I pointed out 😑

The problem is that reducing such dynamics to class struggle is an over-simplification that is IMHO doing more harm than good.

Sure, but I was also referring to the fact that the other three are directly benefitting from the post-colonial exploitation scheme that is deeply embedded in the coffee trade.

Not Antiwork and one of them is not like the other (hint: think about where coffee is grown).

It is true that Slack like chat work-spaces are not a strong point of XMPP (it shines as a personal messenger), but you can set up a system that fulfills nearly all your requirements (I think search is only per room), with ConverseJS Fullscreen (or Movim), a Prosody server and the newish webhook component. Or with Gajim and Conversations as separate clients.

P.s.: “smoothly on mobile” & element ??? The Mattermost mobile client is also not exactly great. In that area at least XMPP is clearly better.

And Slack knows that as well, which is why they hold the chat history at ransom / behind their paywall.

I agree, but the reality is often either no documentation at all or chat history. Documentation takes time and effort, and employees are often disincentivised to write it as it makes them easier to replace.

Too many things to list. It’s a conglomerate of many sub-companies. The article names some examples.

Yeah, this is interesting, and apparently based on some micro-sat company’s technology that SpaceX bought 1-2 years ago.

On a side-node: China’s Baidu GPS-like also includes a similar technology for bi-directional communication that was launched a few weeks ago, but for now it seems to be more targeted at rescue services in east-Asia.

It is just me, or are there a lot of icons broken on Lemmy.ml since a few days? I also get a lot of time-outs when posting stuff. Some ongoing attack or problems with the hoster?

I think what texts like this miss is that the “old internet” isn’t really gone, you just have to look for it a bit harder.

What is really happening is that the internet is eating television, it started with more direct equivalents like Youtube, but it is this general consumption only pattern what makes apps like TikTok popular and which have always existed on TV.


/c/antiwork has entered the chat

Would you like to know more? 😅

Even in the days of yore of the internet the old 90:9:1 ratio applied, so ignoring the vast majority of users that only lurk is a mistake I think.
