Why Vivaldi over something like Brave or Ungoogled Chromium for your odd thing that requires it?

Playing music is really important to me. Even something as simple as completing a scale brightens my day a little bit. Reading, though it my favorite activity. There’s so much peace to be had by becoming immersed in the written word. So much freedom to take what is there an empower it with your imagination.

It’s not too difficult to be active on other instances. For example, I am very active on mander.xyz, despite my instance being lemmy.ml. It’s even easier on Mastodon. Peertube can be a bit of a struggle with subscriptions or notifications not always updating properly though.

Probably no trackers and the loading times are probably great

It’s YouTube? Everyone plays the game. I enjoyed the showcase of what Framework is releasing

Every photo taken by every phone is fake with the amount of processing they do. Of course I’d prefer to know about it, but it’s a common thing in the industry

Can an animal live for hundreds of years while towering over everything else

Still kind of an expensive solution to things you can buy for cheap, and there are always people who don’t know or don’t have access to those handful of companies.

Oh definitely not, but I just thought that the fact that it kept that structure was interesting.

Is there a way to see all the communities in another instance without leaving your home instance?
I'm wondering because I've been shamelessly using [@Sal@mander.xyz](https://mander.xyz/u/Sal) as portal for all the Mander sublemmies

I did not know that Esperanto used the “for what” phrasing for why, present in all the Romance languages I’ve seen so far.

I like the new Reddit design and Lemmy’s design. I hate old Reddit with a burning passion

cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/788626 > After my last post in this sublemmy, this is a great way to temper excitement and expectations, even if it's not as fun as new materials.

Thanks for the cool article. Even the one I posted mentioned that there has to be more than one approach. No such thing as a silver bullet for problems such as these.

“A lot of people are doing it,” Mr. Ton-That shrugged. “Facebook knows.” Lots of people are murdered. Does that make murder right or legal? This type of blatant disregard for not only policies (no one really cares about Facebook), but just the privacy of others is disgusting. This is so bad that I’m sure even normal people would hate this if they knew

Cool Stuff Happening In the CK3 Modding Space
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/712158 > Some of you fellow grand strategy lovers may know about one of Paradox's newer games, Crusader Kings 3, but have you been paying attention to what's been happening in modding? Let me take you through some of the coolest work that is happening right now. > > Let's start off with Godherja. Godherja takes you to a completely custom fantasy world, completely with magic, ridiculously deep lore, several stories, and a world that feels alive. A world torn asunder by destructive living magic gone awry, Aeras is barely holding on. Become a powerful, immortal mage-emperor and try to take over the world, become known for your monster hunting prowess, slaying beast known only to legend. Or perhaps just wait in anticipation, for the Fog to end it all. Even more exciting are two upcoming updates, the updated magic system to make it interact with the characters and the world even more, and the liches. Oh boy the liches. > > Next up on the list is Rajas of Asia. Now if you love history, especially when it's not eurocentric, then this mod is for you. I have personally seen the hours of dedication poured into this mod. Where to begin. Well let's start with the fact that almost the entirety of Asia has been added, with more to come! You can play as the Great Tang Empire, as Balhae, anywhere that you like, extending all the way to Papua. Not only does this mod have the awesome Cultural and Religious Minority system integrated (made by the same dev shoutout to Nezaros), but there is also City of Wonders 2 to give you metropolises, Dharmachakra for wonderful religious depth, and so many more. Soon to come to this mod is a complete rework of the Steppes, which is sorely needed, and there are whispers of more bookmarks to come! > > I'd be remise if I did not mention RICE and VIET, which to me go hand in hand. RICE provides flavor packs for several areas of the game including, Moravia, one that allows you to interact with Greenland, and Sub-Saharan Africa. VIET adds over 1000 events. Both of these mods together will surely make all of your games just burst with flavor and uniqueness. > > Finally, I'd like to mention Elder Kings 2 (I'd recommend that you play it with c0da, a gamerule mod for it). This'll be a short one as it speaks for itself. The entirety of Nirn in the second era has been taken into the world of CK3 for you to enjoy! Patrons, events, decisions, and all your favorite kingdoms are there! > > This is just a short foray into the world of CK3 modding. There are several other impressive mods. Sinews of War with its creative use of the struggle system for trade, Dynamic Trade Routes with its depth of resources and coin. Not to mention graphical mods like Ethnicities and Portraits, and Community Flavor Pack. There is a lot to this space. I was just so saddened to see how quiet this community was and had to make a post about one of my favorite games. Anywho, links for those who want to check these awesome mods out: > > Godherja: > Steam - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2326030123 > Manual Download - https://www.moddb.com/mods/godherja-the-dying-world > > Rajas of Asia: > Steam - https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=2509174436 > Paradox Plaza - https://mods.paradoxplaza.com/mods/45292/Any > > RICE: > Steam - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2273832430 > Paradox Plaza - https://mods.paradoxplaza.com/mods/15338/Any > > VIET: > Steam - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2227658180 > Paradox Plaza - https://mods.paradoxplaza.com/mods/12992/Any > > Elder Kings 2: > Steam - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2887120253 > Manual Download - https://www.nexusmods.com/crusaderkings3/mods/32/ > > c0da: > Steam - https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2893175092 > Manual Download - https://catalogue.smods.ru/archives/137214

Use a different browser and search engine. I was showing my siblings some alternative search engines, and the first thing they commented on is that they all look similar. It’s not too hard of a step for people to take.

The tracking of the company. I don’t find Reddit to be that bad of a place at all, but the data collection really puts me off. I do still have an account, but I strive to use it less.

I read something related about the development of language. This time not in children, but in people both deaf and blind. The process behind the creation of a new language and how existing ones change and evolve is extremely fascinating to me. https://www.newyorker.com/culture/annals-of-inquiry/deafblind-communities-may-be-creating-a-new-language-of-touch

The fact that someone else did something shortsighted to more quickly advance their country does not mean China has to do it. It is far from a third world nation and has the resources, competence, and researchers to do better than the West has and is doing. And there’s no need for name calling either.

This is one of the things I was missing on Firefox from Chromium based browsers. I might make the switch now

To be fair, digital drawing and oil painting achieve a completely different look while AI art can imitate many.

I do a lot of reading but I also game, do some amateur photography, check on my abandoned plants, and watch videos

Yea there are a lot of communities missing the right people to keep them active

PeerTube is great. I also recommend Odysee if you avoid all the conspiracy theorists and don’t scroll down to the comments. Don’t

First line, “Contactless manipulation method could be used in industries such as robotics and manufacturing.” If you want more detail then this is quoting most of the article: "“Contactless manipulation is a hot area of research in optics and electromagnetism, but this research proposes another method for contactless actuation that offers advantages that other methods may not have,” said Matthew Stein, first author on the paper and a graduate student in the University of Minnesota Department of Mechanical Engineering. “Also, outside of the applications that this research enables, expanding upon our knowledge of physics is just a very exciting thing to do in general!”

While this study is more a demonstration of the concept, the researchers aim to test out higher frequencies of waves and different materials and object sizes in the future.

“In a lot of fields of science and engineering, robotics especially, there is the need to move things, to transfer a signal into some sort of controlled motion,” Ilic said. “Often this is done through physical tethers or having to carry some source of energy to be able to perform a task. I think we’re charting in a new direction here and showing that without physical contact, we can move objects, and that motion can be controlled simply by programming what is on the surface of that object. This gives us a new mechanism to contactlessly actuate things.”"

I think it is perfectly fine. A lot of the internet revolves around copying and sharing things several times over (moldy memes are a great example of that). I say go for it. It’ll do nothing but bring more scientific knowledge to Lemmy

More privacy respecting, open-source search engines is always good

If anyone is able to grab a pdf of the Nature article please link it.

Yep has worked pretty well for me. I’ve found some books that I wouldn’t otherwise read through it.

All the alternatives! Gitlab is the most ubiquitous alternative in the privacy community I’ve seen. Seems to work quite well.

Is playing a baritone horn rare? I don’t play very well, but I can play

In fact, Techlore got banned from there and created their own update system complete with an RSS feed.

One of these is not like the others

I think they bring up some important points, but I feel like gaming wasn’t really talked about in this which is one of the use cases for these newer, more powerful laptops.

Since I made this place, I’ll start Language Transfer has been very helpful.
The main way I learn is Duolingo in all its questionableness (it's free), but Language Transfer has helped me sharpen my skills and understand new concepts. I honestly should do it more often.
