That’s an awesome alternative from Tails! Brazilians need to be better educated on privacy and FOSS in general, I can’t put into words how frustrating it is that, while Mastodon has been having a surge from users all over the globe, Brazilians instead flocked to some thing I never heard before called “Koo”.

Reason for that choice you ask? The name sounds like a Brazilian slang for " butthole"…

Edit: alternative -> initiative

First, I don’t think we should be cheering on the state doing anything to limit working people’s ability to do anything.

I hope that’s not a hill you’re willing to die on, you’re literally advocating for the decriminalization of, say, assassins for hire.

Yeah, so, like, anyone wants to talk about stopping funding those 100 corporations? No? At all? Oh, ok, cool, another decade with no real actions taken from any party, then.

I’m so glad the sexual abusers and breast milk stealers at Blizzard are on the right side of history! The 12yo Russians playing WoW in their mother’s PC will learn to never invade another country again!

That’s actually a good idea, I encourage everybody that want to talk about piracy, to do it there. It’s good to keep stuff like that separated from the main gaming community since, you know, illegal and stuff.

And to add to the conversation, the Foundation is the “wOkE” side that chuds love to hate for their social justice efforts, the point being that this decision might as well have nothing to do with the Corporation, since even folks aligned with social justice causes in the West are pro the Russophobia going on right now.

I had it on my Galaxy Nexus for a while early on, when it was still a Canonical project. It was nowhere near daily driver ready, but it was a fun experience. I was hoping it world grow to become a competitor to the duopoly, but oh well…

I remember using the FirefoxOS browser extension too, another fun little project that was dropped.

You mean like with vaccines and stuff? I mean, I live in Brazil, the president (yeah, that one) has been spreading crap like “COVID is just a small flu”, “chloroquine totally works, guys” and “vaccines bad” from day one, and that took no small part on our road to 600.000 deaths and counting, I’m pretty sure. Just a few months ago he pretty much said on a Facebook live stream that the vaccines cause AIDS, without a care in the world.

Thankfully Brazil was not already a nest of antivaxxers and conspiracy theorists before 2020 like USA was, otherwise I’m sure we would be even far worse than we are now.

Thanks for the concern, it’s bad, but I totally see treatments starting to show up in the future, like how people treat Alzheimer and such. Sure they won’t undo all the damage COVID has done, but at least it’ll be something.

I got COVID half a year ago and my already less than stellar memory has been senile levels of bad ever since. Same thing with my attention spam. Results may vary from person to person, but it’s pretty bad.

Edit: oh, and the brain fog, I didn’t know how to describe it, but yeah, there is definitely brain fog.

This is the first time I see Signal in Brazilian news since the controversy regarding WhatsApp’s policy change one year ago (Signal’s adoption is null here, while WhatsApp is king, with Telegram somewhere in between), all because “WhatsApp’s founder is back leading a messaging app”, so for now we can say this move is at least good marketing for them.

btc is not the only crypto

Then I more than welcome them to accept greener Cryptos only, which would eliminate all the most popular ones from the equation.

crypto overall use less electricity than conventional banking.

Conventional banking also does much more than just transactions.

anti-crypto activists getting mad at the wrong people and supporting the rich

The rich are the biggest Cryptos holders, it’s capitalism at its worst, unregulated capitalism.

Lemmy peaked the moment I joined, and I will forever take the merit for that. /s

(Any idea what happened between January and February last year?)

comes to Lemmy

posts “Lemmy is growing!”

refuses to elaborate


Jokes aside, was there supposed to be something more to this? lol

Ah, yes, I saw that episode of Black Mirror. No thank you.

It’s sad that we even have peer pressure to buy new shitty AAA games on launch.

For real. I’m glad my friends aren’t those drones buying the exact same EA/Activision/Ubisoft games every year, and instead we played over the years things like Don’t Starve, Trine, Left 4 Dead, Stardew Valley and a whole lot of Dota 2. I cannot imagine what it’s like to have your gaming experience so limited to online godamn shooters, I’d rather just find another hobby if it gets to that.

#SaveSantasHome (and all our homes too)
>Yes... there is the truth that you leaders all know > >If the Earth were a bank it'd be saved long ago ....Avaaz nails it with great climate crisis message.

But china certainly wants to control what’s running on their systems.

I mean, yes, that’s why ditching Microsoft and going Linux is the right move, they can create their own distribution and have complete control.

I think Cyberpunk is probably the biggest factor to blame here. Let’s be real: most of the popularity the platform gained in recent years was because PC gamers started praising CDPR as this perfect game developer for some reason. CP2077 completely shattered that perception, it inverted it even. CDPR as a whole has a negative image now, and I can’t believe for a second that the store reporting loses out of nowhere, when it was doing better than ever right before the game’s release, is a coincidence.

TLDR; GOG’s popularity came with CDPR’s very positive image, it’s going away with CDPR’s very negative image.

From my experience it only shows up if you’re logged out, I can use it normally when I log in. As for op, I recommend RedReader to browse Reddit, it’s available on F-Droid.

> Game developers associated with the ABetterUbisoft group are petitioning the Assassin’s Creed publisher for a seat at the table, and a “meaningful say in how Ubisoft as a company moves forward.”

Yeah, I don’t think Privacy Redirect falls into what was described there.

To be fair, last time we got news of Protonmail “doing sketchy stuff”, it turned out they weren’t storing anyone’s IPs at all until a government body demanded they to do it for the specific targets, and well, they still gotta follow the law. So well, I think it’s reasonable to have just a little bit of trust on Protonmail too whenever the next bad news pops up.

Help changing the color of FF reader mode on mobile
I modified reader.color_scheme at about:config and it worked flawlessly on both my home and work PCs, but not on the phone, it just stays white. I'm using Fennec F-Droid btw, which is basically a fork that just removes the tiny proprietary bits from the browser, and is manteined by the FF devs themselves as far as I'm concerned.

It's a good explanation on what is really going on with that. It's not a good regulation, but it isn't some Orwellian thing like I've been seeing people say either.

Resident Evil on Twitter: “Enjoy your stay. Resident Evil: #WelcomeToRaccoonCity is only in theaters September 3.”
**Happy 25th birthday to Resident Evil!** They shared today the premiere date of the new live action movie, a reboot unrelated to the past adaptions directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

Highly recommended for who didn't watch it yet, TGC did a great analysis and review of every main game in the series. Really enjoyable even if you don't agree with everything he says.

Happy 35th birthday year!
To start with something simple, let's make an appreciation post for a series that is so underappreciated nowadays. Metroid was released on August 6 1986, creating an entire new genre of video games while introducing us to the first notable female protagonist in this media and bringing in innovations that we take from granted nowadays like the simple ability of going back in sidescrollers! So to this greatly underappreciated series, I wish a great 35th year!

I’m so glad! Having to open Lemmy on the browser on my phone every day was the one little inconvenience I was having, finally having the app is great. And it’s a good app too, good job, team!

EDIT: Ok, two things; first, typo, second, I found something missing from the app, I had to open the browser again to edit this comment. But I’m still enjoying the app, good launch anyway!
