I would go with fed-UH-verse. The word Fediverse is a portmanteau of the words federate and universe, right? So if we’re going with the US pronounciation of the words it’s fed-UH-rate and you-NUH-verse, both have the “uh” sound in the middle.

Things get a bit trickier if we’re using the UK pronounciation, though. The word federate is largely the same, but universe gets pronounced you-NEE-verse, so it could go either way.

The Prince from Katamari Damacy, just to see the ensuing chaos.

Linux since Windows XP. Windows Update broke me.

When were customer ratings ever meaningful? On another note, it doesn’t help that like 90% of apps straight up ask their users to give them 5 stars on whatever store they’re on.

Second panel could also be “Was I a link aggregator?” Because it’s hardly that anymore.

Truly one of the greats. Thank you for years of service, rarbg.

Right there with you. I absolutely hate working for the sole privilege of having enough money to buy food, but nowhere near enough money to save up for a home.

With the way the world is going? Survive.

It’s basically another board that you attach to a Raspberry Pi or similar SCB that allows you to gain additional functionality like adding sensors, cooling, more ports and so on.

Here’s one example: (click). The green board at the bottom is a Raspberry Pi Zero (I think) and the blue board on top is a hat, specifically a Sense HAT. It has additional sensors like one for temperature, a gyroscope, barometer, etc.

Alternative answer: “Right back at you”

It is highly unlikely that users on the internet will be completely replaced by AI bots in the foreseeable future. While AI technology is advancing rapidly, it still lacks the complex decision-making and reasoning skills that humans possess. Additionally, human interaction and creativity play a vital role in many aspects of the internet, from content creation to customer service. Therefore, it is safe to assume that humans will continue to be an integral part of the internet ecosystem for the foreseeable future.

I watch YouTube videos through NewPipe and FreeTube, does that count?

Well, neither do capitalists. Not really sure what they were going for here.

That look of betrayal when the driver hits the brakes, it’s beautiful.

That must have been one tiny sack of potatoes.

I finished the video with a completely different takeaway. I thought it was pretty grim. With a good reason, mind. Between Blackstone buying up housing using people’s pensions and his predictions for the future, I thought very little room was left for optimism. Good video, though.

For a second, I thought I was browsing the @fuck_cars community.

Somehow, I don’t think that replacing the word “Capitalists” with specific examples and their histories would make the meme funnier.

While I didn’t downvote, I share the sentiment. I like the idea of a socialist movement, but talking about rising against the owner class while being on a platform owned by the owner class seems a bit silly. Matrix or revolt.chat would have been better options.

I’m curious about something. When I was job hunting a few years back, everyone and their mother kept pestering me to get a LinkedIn account. I felt like I was a crazy person, because I seemed to have been the only one who remembered or cared about the 2012 leak. Was this the case for anyone else?

Ew, is that middle stripe supposed to be white? Did they wipe the floor with them or something?

I never use repacks, so I have no opinion on fitgirl and I had no opinion on Empress, but now… Holy shit. I’m surprised my monitor didn’t catch fire reading their post, they seem to be absolutely burning with anger.

That’s great and all, but will Nintendo Online be able to handle a twitchy FPS? Last time I checked, Nintendo’s online multiplayer offerings were kind of…crap.

I don’t see the connection. Can someone explain, please?

Seconding Library Genesis. ZLibrary has a nice selection and all, but I’m kind of put off by how you need an account to access it. No such issues with LibGen.

It feels like torture, too. I gave it a quick watch and they’re just… rambling. There’s a laugh track sprinkled in here and there, but I promise you, it’s not funny.

If I tried LaMDA? No, truth be told, I only found out about it when ChatGPT blew up. The reason I said it’s not as good as ChatGPT is because that’s what most articles I find online are saying: ChatGPT delivers information in a plainer, clearer way than anything on the market right now.

That said, my original statement is misleading, sorry about that! I’ll make an edit immediately.

Oh, for sure. They even have their own chatbot called LaMDA. Trouble is, reports are saying that it’s not as good as ChatGPT and Google knows this. Right now they’re in panic mode.

I’m glad this is getting more attention. I’ve recently tried joining a community for mental health only to find out they hang out on Telegram, which was alarming to me. I would hardly call a space owned by a company who sells data to government agencies a safe one. Regrettably, I wound up not joining because of this.

See, I don’t think it is. While Reddit has many, many problems, most users seem to be okay with it. Heck, until about year ago, there was a subreddit called WatchRedditDie which had ample proof of Reddit’s shortcomings. However, Reddit never really died, corporate interests just took over. After this revelation, the mods of the subreddit rightfully gave up and archived the subreddit. I believe Reddit will only die when a mass exodus of users takes place, which is just not happening right now.

I don’t want to talk about work with my friends, mine or theirs. Am I being rude?
I **hate** talking about work. I also listening about work. I don't exactly enjoy my job, so I try not to waste my free time thinking about work, talking about work or, heaven forbid, doing something for work. However, my friends talk about their jobs all the time and it's painful to listen to. I told them as much, but the topic keeps popping up. I'm just not that invested in the specifics and minutia of their workday. I either lack the knowledge to understand their work process or, more often than not, just don't care. That is, unless something bad happened and they want to vent, I'm okay with that. But I still get looks, as if I should be interested about their job. Which, I'm sorry, I'm just not. Am I being unreasonable in trying to steer the conversation into a topic that isn't work-related?

This is probably not a meme, so apologies for that. I do find it funny, though. Here's what the cookie selection window looks like: ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/50fde2cf-2c58-4bb4-a47c-a234741f3564.png) ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/8c82a67c-d52c-43a8-9d55-d960c1870f0b.png)

Does anyone else dislike Bluray discs?
For me, they're more trouble than they're worth. For wanting to support your favorite artists, I'm rewarded with unskippable trailers and FBI warnings, and if you want to play Blurays on PC, well... Just take a look at [this](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Blu-ray#Playback). Keydb files? BD+ decryption? What happened to just putting the stupid disc in the machine and hitting play? With pirated movies and shows, I just double-click on a file and away I go. Why would I ever want to go back to Blurays?

What’s the cheapest hardware that can playback videos at 1080p?
There are so many options out there, it's kind of dizzying. I'm looking for a cheap solution that I could hook up to a TV and ethernet, so it could run a flavor of Linux (or BSD) and play videos at 1080p. Bonus points if it can handle 1080p@60 FPS. Other than that, it would be used for light web browsing. I was looking at Raspberry Pi 4, but is there anything else you would suggest?

MagnetDL, what the fuck?
