Curious to know why you picked lemmy.ml for those subdomains instead of the “project official” joinlemmy.org :)


Kinda late to this, but yeah I use one very simple and undistracting background I found on simpledesktops.com: dark hexes



It is a way to make some income out of an open-source project. If you want the convenience of their managed server, then you have to pay to access limitless orgs (the way to share secrets), otherwise you’re limited to just a 2-person org. The family pack is quite accessible imo, at $40/y for a 6-person org.
Your other solution is, like I mentioned before, host your own server. vaultwarden supports orgs, like you can see in their feature list: https://github.com/dani-garcia/vaultwarden/wiki

BitWarden is really great and a good example of a successful FLOSS project. I get the overall “companies just want to screw you up”, but one must not get completely blinded by it ;)


BitWarden,¹ it just works really really well everywhere. The app is pretty much the same on every platform (which is a good thing imo) and you also have a CLI in case you prefer (may also be useful in some sort of backup script, I suppose). I personally use the cloud service they provide, but you could very easily and cheaply get a vaultwarden² server up and running and be the total master of your passwords, using a $2.5/m VPS or something like that.

Edit: links
Edit: also, the premium Bitwarden plan doesn’t mean that at all, imo. The plan can be very useful if you really need those features (sidenote: I advise ever using the TOTP thing, that’s just putting all your eggs into one basket and defeating the purpose of 2FA), it’s very cheap ($10/y iirc) and you can always export all your data with the CLI, setup a server and import that data.


Yeah. In the announcement article they also linked a Mozilla donation page just for K9


Yeah, onboarding is definitely a big problem with PeerTube and many other fediverse software.

You have PeerTube, which is the server and client software that allows you to upload, manage and view vídeos, à la YouTube, but whereas “traditional” platforms have just one big instance, the Fediverse platforms have multiple smaller instances that interconnect. You have your generic instances, but you also have more focused ones (specific topics like art, tech, or even for generic content related to a specific country/language). Unfortunately, the PeerTube network isn’t very rich and diverse yet, so restricting your search to very specific things may lead you no instances at all.

Hope this info helps! :3


PeerTube is recommended a lot in open-source circles. It is a video streaming platform that supports peer-to-peer distribution of content and is part of the (APub) Fediverse. The experience is very hit-or-miss though, and highly depends on which instance you pick. Running it yourself is not as trivial as running, say, Lemmy, so it’s not for everybody.


This is really cool to see, great news!
K-9 is a fantastic app already, and with the funding and engineering power from the Thunderbird team, I’m sure it will become the very best email client for Android.


ridiculous compliated

It is as complicated to register on another instance as it is to register on lemmy.ml. Furthermore, as another commenter pointed out, there’s no official instance for Lemmy, as the devs believe that hurts the whole points of federation (and I agree). They do, however, run an instance tuned to their preference, and since it was the first one, it attracted the most users.

I’m running my own instance and it is very easy and nice to use :)




Nice, congrats to everyone! :3

Firefox spell checking now checks spelling in multiple languages. To enable additional languages, select them in the text field’s context menu.

Oh finally, I’ve been waiting for this for the longest time hehe


Ireland is a western country, just not very anglophone (though it is more so than most other Europen countries, for example).
Like others have pointed out, if you read and write in English on the Internet, you’re most likely visiting anglophone platforms, thus it is natural to never get to know, let’s say, the Portuguese Internet “culture”, with all its popular websites and quirks. I’d say every country/language has something like this, with varying degrees of richness and popularity of course.
It is true, however, that the USA’s influence on the western Internet “space” is way more significant than any other country’s, which can be attributed to a myriad of reasons, like how they had a big role in its inception and how their economy has evolved to flourish the tech industry.


Exactly what I was going to point out. You might not mind your own smell, but other certainly will, and deodorant can be a good way to mitigate that problem.


Couldn’t agree more. The whole tone of this piece is rather depreciative, and the author steps over multiple key points. Not a good post, imo.


Exactly. If batteries are somehow replaceable, then these could be really really neat!

P2P

P2P on Matrix is far from being a basic feature imo

Announcing chat.sr.ht: a persistent IRC session for sourcehut users
I've tried it already and it's really neat. Drew was also very nice and explained me a lot of stuff :3 What are your thoughts?

The Website Obesity Crisis
Found this article on HN comment thread. Really nice read! It clearly shows problems in 2015 and made accurate predictions that in 2020 things would be even worse... Had to fetch an archived cus the images weren't loading on the live website.

Is Your Privacy An Illusion? (Taking on Big Tech) - Smarter Every Day 263
It's great to see a big channel (10M subs) talking about the issue, but Destin failed to point out that GAFAM and others collect data because it benefits them immensely for targeted ads and other uses, and not just because the government asks for it. It sort of painted a nice pictured for them, like we should feel pity for these companies for being "obliged" to comply. Idk, might be exaggerating. Also, this 4Privacy thing smelled a tad fishy, but I have to read more on it.

cross-post from: https://lemmy.pt/post/2140 Nice initiative by the same people from repair.eu.

I just found this article and thought it was rather neat. I haven't carefully read it all through, though. What do you think?

Lemmy Portugal 🇵🇹 - A new public instance dedicated to Portugal and the Portuguese Language
Hallo! Making this announcement post here to let more people know that the lemmy.pt instance is now opened! I had held back from making this post due to not having written some rules yet, but now that's in place. They still need some touch ups, and a more extensive Code of Conduct document has yet to be written, however, I'd like to get more people on board to get more feedback. So, what is this instance about? Anything related to Portugal, Portuguese, or any related community. We have some communities already set up, but anyone is free to create their own space :D Naturally, posts should be in Portuguese, an on-topic, but English posts are also welcome if they come from people wanting to learn about the community, culture, language and so on. I hope to help the Lemmy network by adding a new instance :3 Cheers!
