Search finds existing knowledge. ChatGPT easily makes up lies as answers. I don’t think this is comparable.

how would I as a user set one of these apps up to use the conversations UP?

it actually is !asklemmy@lemmy.ml! usernames start with @, communities with !

This is scary I think. Is the fediverse that big already, that megacorps are trying to get in? :/

They won’t because their business model is exactly the opposite. They host your blog but then only allow viewers to read like 5 articles per month until they have to pay a subscription. Or something like that, it’s one of those deeply annoying websites that I don’t understand why anyone uses it.

Go for it, that’s why Lemmy exists!

Jokes on him I have been doing that the entire time since it’s pretty easy to spot fraud when it’s that obvious.

people will slow down coming to mastodon. This has always been the case in the past. But mastodon is awesome nonetheless, I liked spending time there even before twitter migration. It’s not better or worse without the users from twitter.

This is your announcement? I think you misunderstand the sub.

In Germany most stores have oat milk that’s cheaper than their cheapest dairy! Even though oat milk is taxed at 19% while dairy at 7% I think.

I can imagine a scenario where I would be a citizen of a sort of large commune. That would be without a state.

[Question] Add cheap HDD storage (from home) to a small Peertube VPS
cross-posted from: https://feddit.de/post/427796 > This is the second try (original post: https://feddit.de/post/426890) of me trying to get an answer, this time I'll be more specific of what I am thinking to do. I thought a more generalized question would be enough. Sorry for that. > > A peertube server needs lots of storage. Many of the videos will hardly get any views. Storage space on a vps is pretty expensive, storage space in general isn't cheap. So my thought was to > > have a disk at home (maybe external disk on a raspberry pi) and a VPS. > > The VPS only has a very limited amount of storage, but is otherwise totally able to run peertube well. So why not have a virtual file system on the VPS, which looks like it has the size of the HDD and it uses a specified amount of the vps storage for caching. So if someone watches a popular part of a popular video, the vps can serve the video content from the local disk. If someone wants to watch the video that nobody ever watches, it's not a problem since the uplink from home can easily deliver that as well, without the video taking the precious storage. > Block caching would be best, since file caching wouldn't be ideal with video files being really big in some cases. So a very long video would fill the cache, even if only parts of it are needed. > > The remote storage doesn't need to be from home of course, could be cheap cloud storage. I know that peertube works with s3, but it will only move transcoded videos into a bucket and then serve them directly from there. I don't want that from home, it would also not use the upload performance of the VPS for popular videos. > > Any thoughts? Good idea or not? > > I have worked with bcache in the past and was always very impressed with the performance, I think my scenario could really work.

right-wing libertarians be like
hey I am a genious I will simply make a social space (or social media website) without any rules. So everybody can do whatever they want. *Someone spamming horse porn everywhere* okay maybe let's have some rules, like no spamming or illegal stuff. *People keep posting my little pony content or gore to unrelated sub forums* Hmm let's just make a full CoC that basically only permits the kind of right-wing thought that we like. End result is a shithole that nobody likes using, since right-wingers don't even like their own people. genius

what killed the crabs?
WHAT KILLED THE CRABS? The official story is something like “a billion snow crabs disappeared.” If that sounds fishy to you, keep reading. Let’s dive into the ecology, oceanography, & geopolitical history of the Bering Sea. A science thread on crabs, corruption, & collapse: 🦀

Please report spam and offending content
We just had a hilarious jokester post nazi spam. If someone had reported instead of downvoted the posts in the memes sub I would have seen it earlier, since I mod there. So if you see something that obv violates the rules, please report. It makes it easier for me and others to be notified. This way fewer people have to see the bad stuff :)
