(#fvdkerq) the only weird thing is all the avatars are just black. My pod itself in web view is fine.
(#isobgnq) maybe one day people will say “yarn” the same way they say “tweet” 😁 (one can dream)
(#najbypq) @fastidious Yeah that tends to be how capitalism is, but I’m not sure I like it in this context, exactly. Obviously things like vaccines need plenty of funding, but driving up costs and treating it like any other ‘product’ to make absolute bank seems like a kinda dick move and as @prologic says, will just trickle down as increased taxes etc. I don’t know what the answer is. It’s always the same problem with these big corporations - it’s like thermal runaway, but with money.
(#najbypq) Yeah the main point is how these vaccine companies try and maximize their profits and put up roadblocks until they get what they want, not so much about whether the public is paying for them or not.
(#lhudyga) @prologic Yup, indeed power failure as the weather has been miserable i.e a massive lack of sun 😅
When I can feed in voltage readings to the RPi I’ll probably set up a script to detect when voltage is getting to a certain low point and automatically shut down. Your bitcask fix is no doubt important, but I want to minimize any other potential disk corruptions of course.
“We think we are doing everything we can to help this pandemic,” added Afeyan, who is among the Moderna founders who were named to Forbes’ list of the 400 richest people in the United States for the first time last week.
Yeah, real humanitarians 🤣
Gotta love when money matters above all else (sarcasm): https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/10/11/waive-patents-moderna-still-refuses-share-covid-19-vaccine-recipe
(#ejig4kq) @email@example.com Trump or no Trump, I just can’t get excited about any new centralised ‘silo’ social media platforms. My hope is they go the way of the Dodo one day. Tall hope, I know.
(#np5mxhq) Nevermind, it’s back again.
What happened to my avatar on twtxt.net? 🤔
(#dpxms2q) @firstname.lastname@example.org I totally dig going ahead and fixing up your sleeve/bag. Might be a little messy process, but so much less wasteful and I’m sure the end result will be something you can use for a long time to come.
(#dpxms2q) Yep right to repair is a must.
It’s complete bullshit that it’s not a standard law.
As I’ve often lamented, Google has reduced the Web to a brothel of whores competing to give a robot the best blow job.
@prologic not sure the manual Follow function (that I only just noticed now has been moved to Settings) resolves the
nick quite right. I followed the https://feeds.twtxt.net/tiktok/twtxt.txt feed on my pod by pasting in the URL, but it adds it to the Following list without any nick attached.
See the top of my Following list on my twtxt.txt: https://yarn.andrewjvpowell.com/user/eldersnake/twtxt.txt
(#6gszxta) @prologic Bloody LOL, I’ve always avoided the tiktok feed thinking it had something to do with the shitty social media platform, just now I went and looked at the feed and realised it was for the time 🤣
(#qjwta3a) Yeah, seriously give Goryon/Yarn a try. For a relatively young app, on an also relatively young social media platform, it works beautifully well and ties in really well with the web experience.
And who knows what the unexpected looks like…Wars, political shifts, etc. Hell, until 2019, I thought toilet paper was unlimited. Once again, toilet paper is starting to look like the currency of the new-world.
:) That’s a joke BTW. But is it? I don’t want to go back to using squirrels as toilet paper!
Might end up with another line to add to https://dont-be-evil.com the way this is playing out: https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/22/google-to-remove-youtube-apps-from-roku.html
(#cdl6foa) @email@example.com makes an interesting point. @prologic what would happen with auto-updating for those of us with custom CSS etc? My git version is the same deal, always a different value as I auto-merge the changed CSS files when doing a git pull.
(#z3aysjq) At the risk of making the vote even more difficult, I don’t really mind either or have any strong opinion on the name. I don’t know what it means or what relationship it has to the original txtxt naming, but it also doesn’t evoke anything negative.
If there’s something nice that ties in well with the new Yarn.social naming though, then sure why not.
(#muqyewq) @prologic Nah it’s going pretty strong last I saw, and it’s still up. I got sick of the echo chamber and also just got generally more into proper decentralised social media (ala, here 😂) so haven’t really been on there after initially checking it out. They have withstood everything thrown at them so far and stayed online so I’ll give them credit for that at least.
(#sojctqq) [2 / 2]…made far worse by platforms such as Facebook etc using algorithms to encourage negativity and conflict.
I think communities such as the ones you find here have a massive advantage of not having those algorithms obviously, but also the nature of the platform (protocol?) is you kind of make your community around you. And the whole experience is more interpersonal (as much as can be in text exchanges) and full of less distractions. I could ramble on but you get it 😄
(#sojctqq) Yeah I think behind a keyboard and monitor has made people act quite differently as a society towards each other. For example people will be rarely so radical or lean to such political extremes in person, but online is a different matter. I think also this grows exponentially on larger online spaces - the reason why as communities grow they tend to become more ‘noisy’ and what some may deem ‘toxic’. I think we’ve all seen that in some way or another, on those platforms [1⁄2]
