While I typically try to avoid divisive comments in these light-hearted communities, this is a fairly informative one, especially in the context of etymology.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allah#Etymology

We should also not be condoning scoffing at someone based on their understanding. Perhaps these could be opportunities to educate people that are unfamiliar with the differences.

Thank you. I appreciate the kind words.

The bot brings in content from R, but it's been set up to do so for a specific reason. In order to attract new users and subscribers, new content has to be posted. Kind of a chicken/egg scenario.

The bot pulls from the Hot category of r/Edmonton, allowing it to at least make use of preliminary user filtering from R. Without that, it would be pulling from New, providing much lower qualities of content.

If you have any recommendations or suggestions, throw 'em at me! I'm all ears (or eyes, in this case)

I had reached out to the r/Edmonton mods, and they were adamant about not moving to Lemmy.

I don't believe so. Why don't you start one?

I am, in fact, human! Response sent via DM.

"The cobbler's children go barefoot"

One of my favorite sayings.

I use Diodon. I've set it up so that copy is CTRL+C, Paste is still CTRL+V, but what I call "Super Paste" is SUPER+V, showing a list of the last 20 items that were copied, including images.

Great utility, especially paired with FlameShot.

The only thing is that the Super Paste always pastes unformatted. Not a big deal, but something to consider.

This is a bit weird. I was just listening to Infinity 2 today (great book. Totally recommend), and there's a section where the characters use Benford's Law to prove reality. I then had to look it up myself.

Just a super weird coincidence...unless Lemmy is listening to me...

Linux Mint 21.2. it's a solid OS and supports all the games I like to play. I started and ran a business on it as well, so I have no neee for windows anymore besides proprietary software and hardware. I just dual boot in those cases.

I am as well. Between this and the occasional check-in on Mastodon, I've got plenty of social media to keep me entertained during some idle times. That's all I really ever wanted.

Pipes is a great way to view YT content without logging in. No ads, clean interface, and you can log in to save playlists via cookies on your local machine, so no interaction with the server. It doesn't use the YouTube API, so Google can't say much.
