I'm just going to bump this: The deadline to register is 11:59 on Tuesday the 18th.

If you are not yet registered, you have less than 35 hours to do so.

I emailed my IT team when I saw something suspect (which was a phish test), and they said "good job, but in the future click the link we insert in the email body to report"

Hmm...actually, I'd rather not click anything in a dodgy email, thanks.

We took about 34 hours, iirc.

Flamingos handled it (which was so appreciated), and it was run on a lot of threads.

Let us know if you want to check anything.

I half expected it to say "by closing inheritance tax loopholes prior to Edmund Bridgerton's death".

I was planning to keep bees, until someone informed me that honey bees outcompete native bumbles.

And I fucking love bumbles.

So now I'm modifying the garden to be bumble friendly, and living without enormous amounts of honey.

It depends on the version of atmos.

Full fat cinema atmos can scale to (iirc) 512 channels. (Things may have changed since I last was involved!)

In that case, it's a 7.1 bed, and all the other channels are effectively coordinates in the room, and the processor steers objects between them in real time, rather than having defined tracks.

Man, the early poster draft for My Neighbour Totoro sure was something.

Exactly that.
With the current ceo, it's been hyped beyond value.
One day, the value will return to the actual value.
If the ceo is changed, it will happen pretty rapidly, then the company can grow from there.
If the ceo is not changed, the hype will continue until either a breaking point, or the ceo changing.
So the shareholders have voted for the thing that preserves the status quo a little longer. Road-runner as it is.
And the ceo seems to have managed to extract a large chunk of the current hype money, in exchange for not changing the status quo.

I will apologise for this: We're upgrading the picture hosting back end, and I didn't consider @[email protected] 's competition.

Sorry!

19.4 upgrade (feddit.uk)
submitted 5 days ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Hello, I'm hoping to take the instance to 19.4 in the near future.
Before doing this, I need to take pictrs up a few versions.
This will take a while, so while 19.4 is in the works, it won't happen for a week or so.

Cheers, GA.

I felt this might be worth the community discussing.
Happy for people both on and off-instance to weigh in, though it is about this instance's interaction.

It's made doubly fun by the fact that the main owners of the lemmy project are admins on there. (If I understand correctly)

Title was brought over during the cross post.

I feel like we need to talk about Lemmy's massive tankie censorship problem. A lot of popular lemmy communities are hosted on lemmy.ml. It's been well known for a while that the admins/mods of that instance have, let's say, rather extremist and onesided political views. In short, they're what's colloquially referred to as tankies. This wouldn't be much of an issue if they didn't regularly abuse their admin/mod status to censor and silence people who dissent with their political beliefs and for example, post things critical of China, Russia, the USSR, socialism, ...

As an example, there was a thread today about the anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre. When I was reading it, there were mostly posts critical of China in the thread and some whataboutist/denialist replies critical of the USA and the west. In terms of votes, the posts critical of China were definitely getting the most support.

I posted a comment in this thread linking to "https://archive.ph/2020.07.12-074312/https://imgur.com/a/AIIbbPs" (WARNING: graphical content), which describes aspects of the atrocities that aren't widely known even in the West, and supporting evidence. My comment was promptly removed for violating the "Be nice and civil" rule. When I looked back at the thread, I noticed that all posts critical of China had been removed while the whataboutist and denialist comments were left in place.

This is what the modlog of the instance looks like:

Definitely a trend there wouldn't you say?

When I called them out on their one sided censorship, with a screenshot of the modlog above, I promptly received a community ban on all communities on lemmy.ml that I had ever participated in.

Proof:

So many of you will now probably think something like: "So what, it's the fediverse, you can use another instance."

The problem with this reasoning is that many of the popular communities are actually on lemmy.ml, and they're not so easy to replace. I mean, in terms of content and engagement lemmy is already a pretty small place as it is. So it's rather pointless sitting for example in /c/[email protected] where there's nobody to discuss anything with.

I'm not sure if there's a solution here, but I'd like to urge people to avoid lemmy.ml hosted communities in favor of communities on more reasonable instances.

They did, however, do a public good.
I'm sure Channel 4 loses similar amounts for some of the Dispatches.
