Heh… TIL ;)
Looks like there is actually a crazy amount of different types: https://www.universalnetworks.co.uk/faq/what-does-utp-s-utp-ftp-stp-and-sftp-mean/
If it’s only a meter, don’t worry about it.
You can guess if it is shielded or not by how hard the cables are to bend, but otherwise you need to cut them open and see if there is some metalized foil wrapped around the cables. I think this shielding is not mandatory by the specs so usually only the professional ones have it.
There was also some previous discussion about using a S3 compatible image host as the Pict-rs backend added support for that in the latest version v0.4.x
Lemmy is still using 0.3.x and 0.4.x is untested I think, and by default Pict-rs is proxied through the Lemmy backend server I think, but in theory it should be possible to distribute quite some load this way.
this seems to be the relevant issue: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2877
Maybe some dns fail-over for lemmy.ml to point to join-lemmy.org might be cool indeed 🤔
Then people would start name-squatting and you would end up with people having to resort to firstname.lastname@example.org just because someone on a totally different instance already registered email@example.com. The instance already signifies that it is a different user and it is rather the exception that someone intentionally tries to impersonate a user by copying the avatar etc.
Reddit does have free RSS/ATOM feeds AFAIK, they are just strongly rate limited to prevent abuse. A single bot pulling RSS feeds for a few communities should be indistinguishable from a regular user though. This bot can pull RSS feeds and post them to Lemmy: https://github.com/pooza/tomato-shrieker
France has that train system, although sadly too centralized on Paris, meaning you often have to make a detour over Paris to reach another place.
IMHO only when there are suitable alternatives it makes sense to have legislation like that, although I think the real problem are unnecessary business trips (which includes private jets) and legislation should rather focus on that.
You mean here: https://join-lemmy.org/instances ?
It already has a “recommended” section at the top.
I think we could argue that having a “popular” section below is somewhat counter-productive as you don’t really want to funnel even more users to the already overloaded instances, but any kind of “political” sorting will probably just result in endless discussions on how and why something is sorted one way or the other.
There is a bot that reads a RSS feed etc and posts it to Lemmy: https://github.com/pooza/tomato-shrieker
Not very active but they have an official community on Lemmy: https://lemmy.ml/c/veloren
That is being reworked right now and Nextcloud also has file storage federation via the Open Cloud Mesh specification that allows sharing files and folders between various cloud file storage software. The latter is sadly often overlooked and more interesting than being able to post to Mastodon from the Nextcloud interface.
It is/was an idea, not a precise plan, mainly born out of some frustrations with Lemmy. It is still a consideration, but for now I think kbin is undergoing too many changes for it to make sense to switch right now. But since I want/need to switch servers right now and not in half a year or so I think I’ll stay with Lemmy and to be honest once I have everything setup and working with Lemmy on my own server I’ll probably be too lazy to switch again 😅
Slrpnk.net is blocking lemmygrad, but I closed registrations until I moved the server to my own hardware. Maybe later next week I can reopen it.
The economic model just doesn’t work in a winner takes all market. Maybe try https://veloren.net as a open-source multiplayer RPG (not really massive, but there are typically 100+ players on the main server at any given time).
A Mindustry Let’s Play would be also nice: https://github.com/Anuken/Mindustry
Semi-related: rejections are also displayed as “approved by” in the read applications log.
