I've been using Jellyfin for years and am quite happy. Not really using it myself, but let people in my family use it. Back when I decided I went with it since I wanted to have multiple users.

It's nice that it supports not only video and music, but also pictures and ebooks.


Though, I had it a lot easier installing, since I just used docker, so I was done setting everything up in ten minutes.

I don't get how you get from this sophisticated computer stuff to racist bullshit. I don't even know who the offendingly mixed-race person is you blame for all this. But whoever it is, it ain't the one who designed the server to be utterly dominated by remote-control hackers - that was a design choice made by some "computer entrepreneur", by which I mean a corporate seat filler who gets most of his money from three letter agencies in thinly disguised packages. Is there anybody in the computer industry whose business model is significantly different from an old-time Kapo's?

This seems vastly too optimistic. China has shown how quickly governments go from forcing people onto VPNs to banning those VPNs. Microsoft so far as I understand is already well on the path to banning arbitrary code, such as the code you need for your alternative networks. People hosting nodes for the alternative networks have always been at risk of being targeted and convicted for "distributing child porn" coming encrypted through any peer-to-peer network that doesn't spy on people. And they can still go full-on Russia and jail anybody for any reason and none.

With hundreds of animal species breeding Covid variants, with runaway carbon emissions from a burning Arctic fueling ever-faster global warming, with nuclear war coming at a moment's notice, we all know we're looking down the barrel of the end of the world. What we can do is to adjust our attitude - to stop seeing it as something to fear, but something to give us hope; not an error, but the will of God. We can start thinking about how long we're going to try to hold out and when we're going to stand aside and let the end come. Who knows - maybe something else will do better.

Its worse, and you are right, as always, because on ConPro hours ago a NEW Feb 2022 WebP zero day unpatched on 60% of all Apple users showed up :

https://consumeproduct.win/p/142BTB1ZSP/fuck-around-and-find-out-shitbul/c/

So the new owners of scored.co (formerly .win) are now exhibiting their funding links more and their glowie tendencies on ConPro links march 21 2022.

This is all so tiring.

This will really be accelerated if people who are being censored tell people "subscribe to my rss feed" instead of "give me your email address and I'll email you". The main convenient thing about sites like reddit, facebook, etc. is that you can see a lot of different content you want to see in a convenient format while staying on one website. Lots of people don't even really know about RSS, but if there's a comeback, that will make it easier for people to follow updates on multiple personal blogs and websites.

My response to this challenge is the same as the one to the cold shower challenge. I always take a cold shower. Every day. Forever.

I always use the command line only unless utterly impossible. Every day. Forever.

Browsers are were this falls apart. I'm using qutebrowser, which is kinda close, but it isn't a CLI browser. Most websites are incompatible with CLI browsers, so that's not going to work. I'm also still using a GUI music player and email client. The former because it JustWorks™, but I'm planning on replacing it with mpd and ncmpcpp or whatever it was called. The latter because it JustWorks™ and I'm using it so rarely that it frankly doesn't matter.

I'm doing most of my image manipulation from the cli, though. I also use a script to crawl Youtube for me, so I don't have to actually visit youtube anymore. Newsboat (RSS reader) to "subscribe" to channels and the script to search for videos. Works pretty good.

The reason I mostly use the CLI is because it is more convenient.

I don't think it's half-nigger-women fault it's there in the first place, every corporate monstrosity has it's own arsenal of backdoors. But it may be half-nigger-women fault it was discovered and made public.

universal fundamental rights What those may be I wonder? Let's go on trusty wikipedia which totally never lies nor promotes interests of israel and learn. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fundamental_rights third sentence says you have no rights and links on agenda 21. You have been opted out of your rights it seems before you had the chance to opt out of technocracy.

Also that's one hell of bloated website. At least when wannabe masters use it they suffer as much as us peasants.

There's something similar on Windows, where someone would tell others to "open cmd.exe" and type del System32, which would destroy the core system files. Probably the simplest form of malware to ever exist. I've heard stories of people actually falling for that.

Good read.

I don't have the problem. I'm kind of a hoarder, but I hate spending money, so each purchase I make gets vetted intensely and I take months, sometimes years between "I need that" and "I bought it". Stuff I want, but do not need, I won't even think about buying. If I don't need it, I won't spend money on it.

So I still have a laptop from the 1990s, but I only have three laptops in total.

If I didn't passionately hate spending money for myself I would probably be very cluttered, too. When giving gifts on the other hand, I am not stingy at all.

But even as a kid I hated parting with stuff I owned. Tech or none tech. Not sure why I have such a hard time letting go of stuff I don't actually need anymore.
