Who would have thought that if you go out and actively look for stuff you might actually find it.

But review is good I guess. Is it being over diagnosed, or do we really have to rethink stuff because there are loads of people struggling in the construct we have created because they are not neurotypical.

My guess is ADHD is more common than we thought and it needs to get more attention by not only diagnosing and medicating where needed, it also requires other systemic changes to accommodate for ADHD.

Like dyslexia.. on my youth people where just considered slow or stupid.. turns out they had a condition out of their control.

Go to your profile, settings, blocks, Instances and add lemmy.ml. That massively helps you enjoy the fediverse more.

The countries with the most Fediverse servers are rich and former/current colonial powers. One of the best true barometers of the success of the Fediverse is how quickly we can turn that on its head. ( sopuli.xyz )

In the end I don’t think internet users in rich powerful countries are the users most likely to benefit and invest their time into in the fediverse. They might be the ones with the most free time, money and privilege around computers which makes being on the leading edge of niche technologies far easier, but I don’t think...

Badeendje ,
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah.. those leeches from underdeveloped countries should be hosting fediverse servers with all that expendable income they have.

What a shit take.

Badeendje ,
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

I think I responded to the tone and then you see premise that insinuated that colonial oppressors are just using their advantage to once again oppress the poor indigenous people of wherever in yet another way. Which I don't agree with.

The concept of the fediverse seems to be that admins host instances and are pretty welcoming to new communities... So if someone from I dunno Togo would setup a lomé or togo-politics community it would be supported. Meaning anyone from anywhere can use the infra provided to setup and moderate their communities.

If anything the system allows people more advantaged with resources (time, money, know how) to provide an open space that can be used by everyone (within reason). Without being beholden to big tech and her hidden profit driven agenda.

I would be more concerned about accessibility and usability from the perspective of a lot of people. As many countries that are still developing have limited time and access. And I don't know if the current state of the fediverse in it's development is of much help.

I'llIncreasing the usability of the whole ecosystem with improved clients, moderation tools etc (the stuff that fediverse users are requesting, and those devs are working on) will help.

Once it is mature, more will come. And like with tech, financed by early adopters this seems similar.

In the mean time I see people from all over the globe post stuff about many things, including national interest stuff that would otherwise have passed me by.

And I don't see stuff posted in languages I don't comprehend because my profile filteres them out. I don't know if there are any Swahili/Papiamento/Mandarin/Indonesian posts on lemmy, but Lemmy supports many languages so that might be a thing.

Lastly the whole us vs them (colonial powers, oppressors etc etc) might be applicable to a lot of the world, however, garnering support for a cause by making accusations against the fediverse and the current generation of hosts and users does not help. I would advise a more constructive stance in general. If you see people actually being as you describe call them out and tell it like it is by all means, but this was not the way to get the ball rolling.

I'd probably gone with something like: the fediverse is growing, how can we help it develop in a direction better serving people in developing countries. To get them out from under the power hold and monopolies of the big tech conglomerates. .. or something.

In that case I would have stuck with an answer like above.. we need to foster and nurture it's growth so it becomes a good alternative and the people will come. Plus.. you know.. ask people from these countries or maybe even get devs from there involved using stuff like patreon. Getting feedback from people not using your product.. and finding out why they don't is hard.

But Lemmy for example already did a solid by making sure the platform supports a looooot or languages "out of the box".

Hope that's better :).

For the record, I did not downvotes your reply as it deserves an actual response.

Exclusive: Putin wants Ukraine ceasefire on current frontlines ( www.reuters.com )

Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to halt the war in Ukraine with a negotiated ceasefire that recognises the current battlefield lines, four Russian sources told Reuters, saying he is prepared to fight on if Kyiv and the West do not respond....

To let us reconstitute our army groups and restock supplies. In order to show our good faith we will withdraw troops from the northern costly tactical mistake.

Just an ugly ploy to allow his cronies in the EU to be able to say that Russia offered a ceasefire.

Noone is falling for this.

Badeendje ,
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

For sure, the direct tactical gains would be massive.

Also, in the EU we have elections coming up. The right wing parties and Euro sceptics are already on a plus.. so giving them another talking point is potentially even more valuable.. if this stifles support for Ukraine.

Russia smashes train tracks in a battered Ukrainian border region where children are being evacuated ( apnews.com )

A nighttime Russian attack destroyed train tracks and rolling stock in Ukraine’s northeastern Kharkiv region, officials said Friday, and authorities organized the evacuation of children from the area that is being pummeled by the Kremlin’s forces in a powerful new offensive....

Sont thumb your nose at those support vehicles. They are not common and Ukraine needs them. So the fact that Germany is providing them helps.

But yeah.. I hope they supply a nice catch of Taurus. Did the leaked recordings of those Airforce officers not suggest they would need around 20 to blow up that bridge.. so give them 50 for a strike on that bridge and take out both the rail and car decks in a single massive strike. But apparently integrating Taurus to the supplied f16s would be a "thing".

Most western countries seemed to have swapped strategic reserves for the sweet sweet cost savings of just in time delivery across the board.

And because in a lot of countries healthcare is free market.. the lawmakers should mandate having enough stock for operation for x days.

It is about using your monopoly to influence the market and playing favorites for your own gain without disclosing your bias. If you highlight certain apps not because they are good but because they make you the most money, you are well on your way to abusing your monopoly.

And having your appstore installed means 90% of people never venture outside the walled garden. So even if there are theoretical alternatives, in practice there aren't.

Yeah well figuring out who owns what jet will mearginally harder. Like with metadata if you have a few data points it will be easy to figure out who owns what plane. And it is not like these people don't travel much so the data points will Stack up fast.

Badeendje ,
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

I think people are more upset about the fact that basic laws protecting the privacy of millions are not even discussed but when a few billionaires cry that they can be tracked a law is enacted swift-ly (hehe) and public data that the government collects is no longer public.

Maybe they should focus on the greater good.

And while your privacy argument could be a good point, a plane has no privacy and just like other registers the public had a legitimate interest to know.

Or.. one is bad and the other one is way worse.

Anyway this just means that a straight B-line for no longer being fossil fuel dependent is just more important.

If we can then combine that by sourcing the oil from countries that do not perform stonings and public executions in stadiums, of call it a win.

Keep in mind that not 50 years ago, we had an oil crisis that showed how incredibly depended we where, and the EU learned the hard way what energy dependence on Russia meant.

Solar, Wind and a hydro/Geothermal/nuclear baseload with at least 60 months of stored fission material would be my hope.

Badeendje ,
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

Absolutely, and I'm plenty entitled to my opinion.

In my original post I purposefully did not specify my opinion on which is worse as I fully understand that choosing one as more evil over the other is subjective and depends on your perspective and priorities.

Squid asked a question, fully expecting my answer to be as it was, in order to perform a gotcha. And I'm not interested in having a slapfight on which country is more evil.. as the list of horribleness for each of the countries is so sickeningly long.

But in the end both countries are hellholes, tthat I would not wish my worst enemy to live in.

Edit: I'm just sad that this leads to downvotes.

@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

I left it to the reader to fill in which is which.. the definition of neutral. You also think one is worse than the other and fill in the names different than me.

But it also gives these men the opportunity to serve their country. As I understood the process is limited to non violent offenders and also removes the construction of previously convicted felons to serve. As people with a criminal record could also not serve.

It does open Ukraine up to comments of the type you describe.

Running a virtual server allows you to run a server application on its own virtual machine, this eliminates the chance that (when running multiple applications from a server) the underlaying requirement for each apllication conflict.

In comparison to docker the full server can offer more native capabilities for some applications, while other applications simply only run on a full OS.

So by virtualizing the servers one large piece of Hardware can be used to run multiple servers and you can (sometimes dynamically) allocate resources as needed.

The backups can consume all computing power put of office hours while the other applications share during Office hours as needed.. sometimes a bit more for VM A and sometimes a bit more for VM B.

Off course monitoring overallocation is a thing as you might end up with bottlenecks caused by peak loads that occur at the same time.. the issue would be bigger when running on dedicated hardware.

And off course having multiple hardware platforms interconnected allows for a VM to be moved from hardware platform to hardware platform without interruption (license required) meaning you can perform hardware maintenance without an outage.

I fully understand, and those are indeed risks. But I said in my last paragraph. I don't think Russia is looking for that kind of escalation either.

I doubt the escalation of the west will lead to troops in the trenches, but if it leads to combat sorties, closed sky over Ukraine and fully opened arsenals. That's OK right?

Badeendje , (edited )
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

I don't think Russia will do much else than now.

  • Make threats.
  • Send more of their young men to die.

Using a Nuke is not realistically an option as they would isolate themselves from China and put all countries on the fence in the position that they have to choose.

I can also imagine that sanctions will be changed to "nothing regardless of potential use".

Badeendje , (edited )
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

No, off course it changes it. But so does it change for other countries if Nuclear weapons are used. And I'll leave it at that.

I also believe what you are doing is called concern trolling so I won't continue this back and forth.

Badeendje , (edited )
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

What proof.. you don't have any proof either.. except for the statements by a regime that has been outright lying and bluffing this entire war. And was called on their bluf so many times we lost count.

There is no telling what a power mad dictator will do when threatened. And I agree their calculation on the use of nuclear weapons MIGHT change. But the counterweight to that is that many many more countries will isolate them and the question will be if this moves the needle in any discernible way towards actual use.

And countering my calling out your concern trolling with "no, you are" does not take away that you are here amplifying Kremlin talking points and trying to Stoke fear on the use of nuclear weapons (without actually saying nuclear) by the evil Z idiots.

Edit: jeez it seems the trolls of Lemmygrad are leaking again.

Badeendje , (edited )
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

In this report, the author argues that the evidence Russia has lowered its threshold for nuclear use is far from convincing. Rather, Russia’s statements and behavior indicate more a desire to leverage its status as a nuclear power—less a lowering of the threshold than a reminder that escalation is possible and that Russia must therefore be taken seriously.
From your csis source

Badeendje ,
@Badeendje@lemmy.world avatar

Only time will tell, but so far the caution in escalation is serving the Russians well. And even though I don't expect NATO troops in any trenches, support roles can work. Training can also be done abroad where it is safer for all involved. There is just the logistics of moving many vs moving few.
