So I moved out recently and discovered I pretty much only know how to prepare scrambled eggs and smoothies.

I've been trying to find cool cooking resources online, but most feel like are just either clickbait or advertising me a lot of garbage (that vibe reminds me of toxic fitness channels).

Any good resources you guys may know? It doesn't necessarily have to be YouTube channels, extra points if it has beginner level recipes, easily findable ingredients or it's funny to follow. Thanks! :)

Hey guys, so I moved recently and started tipping my toes in self-hosting, currently managed to set up Pihole and Jellyfin.

I'm thinking of buying a TV to start enjoying all these cool services over my living room. The thing is, I'm pretty much an absolute beginner, and I'm not sure if there is something I should be aware of when buying a TV.

Since it is a fairly big spend, I would really hate to be locked out of it because of some greedy corporate garbage or something, especially since I would use it only for self-hosting, and I am aware TVs are particularly messy when it comes to this (never have bought one in my life). Could you guys help this lost kid?

I could swear to God I never hit the 10 mark over there. In here as long as it isn't a "^this" I get 10-20, and solidly hit the 50 mark if I comment something truly meaningful.

I found this handy reference a while ago. But yeah, we are kinda screwed.

From time to time I got the need to trim intros/outros or silence from downloaded audio files.

I'm currently using Super Sound, but I find it a little silly that one of the last closed source, filled with ads app I still have installed is for such a small functionality.

On desktop I use ffmpeg for pretty much anything, so if there is some wrapper for it over android it would be ideal.

I think it's just survivorship bias, kinda like mastodon. The people inclined to come here are probably anti-corporate, and sick of current social media's bullshit.

I will tell this nonstop, online advertisement (as a form of monetization) is pretty damn dated nowadays. You could give them literally a dollar every year and they would make more from you than serving you ads.

Unpopular opinion: I kinda feel like a reason ads are so popular nowadays is because it gives the user a way of feeling they are supporting a product/creator by doing pretty much nothing.

Dude, you are recommending Pepsi in a Coca-Cola forum.

To me, it was the astounding amount of interactivity between the community.

At first I thought this was temporarily caused by the whole migration from the R site. But, just out of curiosity, I signed up to Mastodon and have enjoyed myself just as much as here.

Most of the Lemmy post's / Mastodon toots have almost as much or more comments / boosts than upvotes or favorites. It feels so organic and makes me realize how much these huge companies employ technics to pretty much force to interact the way they see fit.

It reminds me of that good old saying "you are not immune to propaganda", well I guess neither I nor anyone is immune to psychological tricks either.

P.S. I also love the fact that since there isn't pretty much any money involved, most opinions and interactions are genuine. Like, who is gonna pay this dude to advertise a book through BookWyrm? That increases immensely the odds that said person is being honest with their opinion of that book. It's amazing.

Hi, I have set up my neovim config listchars like so:

vim.opt.listchars = { tab = "│ ", trail = "·", precedes = "<", extends = ">", nbsp = "○" }

But for empty lines between the indentations there are these awful holes left.

I used to use intent-blankline.nvim but I want to try to tone down my plugin usage, and I pretty much used it only to fix this issue, could somebody help me?

Great news to me I'm not "pro-lemmy", I am "anti-reddit".

I was about to touch some grass but thankfully Lemmy saved me.

WE HAD A GOOD THING YOU STUPID SON OF A BITCH!

We had 3PA's, we had all the free labor in the world, just from passionate people who wanted to share some topic, we had bots to fight spam, and extremely talented developers who made your stupid website work on mobile. It all ran like clockwork, if you could have just shut your mouth we'd all be fine right now.

But no, you just had to blow it up. YOU, AND YOUR GREED AND YOUR EGO.

Fuck u/spez

Yeah, we just need a bit more of a push. I think some people may be a bit too fixated on reaching Reddit's numbers; we really don't need to. I don't care if the top comment has 50 upvotes instead of 50,000, what I want is more comments, more posts, more experts in a field sharing their invaluable opinions.

Obviously it will take some time to reach the level of granularity some subreddits have. Like, we have a design sub, a good design sub, an ashole design sub, a crappy design sub (which is like asshole design, but unintentional), a design design sub (for awful designs that are also somehow aesthetic)... And all this without going into specific design subs (web design, brand design, structure design...). Yeah, we may not have all those for a while, we enthusiasts may all have to interact in a general Lemmy Design community, but guess what? That is how Reddit got where it is now.

Personally, I am enjoying the process. I've been lurking Reddit for years, reading awesome posts, and informing myself on all kinds of topics from people I won't ever begin to compare to. But Lemmy, for the moment, feels more intimate to me, I am starting to recognize specific nametags, to interact with real human beings (not a sentient blob of like-minded thoughts). It feels like being at a bonfire enjoying the moment with a couple of people, and I think that by itself has it's own charm.

Every Reddit ad is a Lemmy ad if you think about it.
