That’s what I want to know. It wouldn’t surprise me if this is from some right wing grifter’s “children’s” book. Someone like Ben Shapiro, Dennis Prager, or Matt Walsh.

Open the fridge, light turns on. Close the fridge, light turns off. Can’t explain that.

I heard this story on NPR as well. And of course, some far right asswipes say he’s a communist. Just some guy trying to help the most vulnerable and they have to make it political.

If I sell my Ferraris then how am I supposed to travel from my private island to my day job at the office?

Somewhat unrelated but also interesting is that the ATF recently changed the background check form for buying a firearm in the US to have a third non-binary option. Always debated checking that off just to fuck with the possible reactionary standing behind the gun counter.

One of my programming instructors had a mug that said “you can’t lie to the compiler”.

Although congress did end up banning funding for neo nazis in 2018 according to the azov batallion’s Wikipedia article.

Running 2 instances on one VPS

I’m thinking of setting up another lemmy instance and was considering just hosting it on the same VPS as my current instance. I know lemmygrad is hosted on the same server as lemmy.ml. How difficult is this?..


I’ve personally never been there but it wouldn’t surprise me.

I believe the devs host their code on multiple repositories including Codeberg.

Thanks! Yeah, I’m not actually trying to do anything useful with this code. Just testing out the concepts that I’m reading about.

How to retrieve value of EnumItemStruct property?

I’m playing with the following code and can’t seem to find an example where I can get the values of one of the coordinates.


Cannot fetch comments

I’m currently going through some logs and when I do a search from my instance to a post on lemmy.ml, I get the following: …


Yeah, according to logs the POST requests are going through fine.

I’m still having federation issues after the upgrade. At this point I wonder if it’s my firewall or something. I watch the lemmy logs when upvoting for example and my server doesn’t even see the request come in.

The post you made to !theonion@midwest.social doesn’t show up to users on midwest.social, but shows up fine on lemmy.ml.

Rich capitalists with morals? Pssh…

This is what it looks like when you use 100% of your brain.

Which image hosting software do you recommend?

I’ve been researching open source image/video hosting software because I sure as hell don’t want to use Google Photos. I’m leaning toward PhotoPrism, but I thought I’d get your opinions first…





It's a hot job market right now

I have been working as a programmer in test at my current job for about 2 years and haven’t received a raise. Long story short I said I was open to new opportunities on LinkedIn, interviewed, and got an offer for $12,500 more than what I currently make. …


Only getting seeing posts from ~13 hours ago at any time

My instance is subscribed to a few lemmy.ml communities and I’m only seeing content after it’s been up around 13 hours. …


What exactly is this community supposed to be about?

Left leaning gun owners? Pictures of guns owned by leftists? Anti union-busting tactics?..
