@GuyDudeman The UI of Friendica is not so user-friendly, unfortunately. But it has a lots of features! That’s why I like it. I’m a developer type of person so bad UI doesn’t hurt my eyes as much as for some people 😄
And yeah. Friendica can be slow, unfortunately. It’s developed in PHP which is a slow language/framework. Which also means that one Friendica instance likely can’t handle as many users with the same resources as the other systems such as Mastodon, Calckey etc.
A bonus with Friendica: you can interact with people on Diaspora, which isn’t possible from Mastodon or the others :)
@GuyDudeman venera.social is open for signups.
Yeah. Well intended 😆
@tsugu you are then in control of your own data
@tsugu rent a cheap storage VPS on Contabo or Hostnoc and install Nextcloud or Seafile on it 👍
@GuyDudeman Indeed. And a correction to what I said earlier. Friendica has a permission tab for new posts.
@GuyDudeman I see. I don’t know how this works on Lemmy (yeah I’m using Friendica on my own instance), but I know that Mastodon has a feature where you can choose privacy settings. This is also possible via Friendica, but the per-post setting is not available via the web interface but only available via the Mastodon API so that means using a Mastodon client such as Fedilab. If you choose a post/comment to be private, it will only be sent to the people who are part of the thread/people you tag in it.
@sexy_peach maybe that guy should have checked the swap details before he pressed confirm 😅
True. They have their own benefits. Cryptocurrencies are also better if let’s say you want to get through an airport with lots of money. They can’t check what crypto you have and for sure Monero is superior to other cryptos if you wanna hide them. But still there is the theoretical risk of an unknown backdoor in the encryption of Monero transactions. It’s there permanently on the blockchain which is a downside because if any bug or backdoor is discovered later, then they can go back in time and reveal previous transactions. So physical cash will always be the best for the cases in which it can be used.
@yogthos fake money for criminals (supposedly crypto currencies) is my favorite innovation.
@yogthos @bobs_guns indeed. criminals prefer physical cash rather than digital transactions which are traceable.
Very good explanation 👍
@yogthos me too actually. it was only after some days I realized it was missing :D
@Overlock haaha. not a good situation 😂
@ganymede A warning message is fine, but let me proceed if I want to.
@ganymede indeed. I like that Linux lets me fuck up things myself.
@shreddy_scientist waydroid is pretty awesome
Haha yeah you must 😂
@Doubleplusgoodman Thank you :)
@nickapos You use Vim and Emacs 😱😱 I thought there is a war between the two!!??
Just kidding 😀
@cyclohexane true. i never spent the time to learn vim.
@Doubleplusgoodman what is ‘ed’?
@winnie @jcbritobr thats usually the case for mastodon when someone replies to your post.
@butter same here. Vim is too complicated for me.
@winnie flatpak runs much better than snap. im off ubuntu.
Fantastic idea 💡
@lemming_7765 Looking forward for his new records 💪
@altair222 @snoopa @ryankage @stephen @Furycd001 yeah I heard that it’s also immutable. never tried it though.
@altair222 @snoopa @ryankage @stephen @Furycd001 you can install packages on main system - it’s just best to avoid it when it’s possible. I have VPN layered on the host system because I don’t think thats possible through a container. Server applications can be run in a container and toolbox and distrobox make it easy because it makes the container applications run almost the same as on the host. With distrobox it’s even possible to run an init system such as systemd inside a container. So I would say it like this: whenever possible, try to run applications inside a container or use Flatpaks. if it isn’t possible then layer them on the host system as the last resort.
@Bicyclejohn I use Firefox because of its features and better performance.
