    Lemmy does give me a strong nostalgic feeling of old school forums. I think the Fediverse is going to give enthusiasts what they’ve been missing. I just hope it lasts and continues to grow.

    That’s what pisses me off about Bluesky. Mastodon already exists, and is not for profit. We don’t need another “decentralized” platform that intentionally doesn’t talk to the Fediverse and is trying to create its own version. Yet my fear is Bluesky will end up being mainstream and those for-profit CEOs will continue running the internet into the ground. I hope people end up realizing Mastodon already exists, and is a better version of what Bluesky wants to be.

    Excellent post, and I love your sites minimal, old school design. I finally found the right corner of the internet where people actually think about this kind of thing! It’s so frustrating how over the years search engine results just give you bloated, pointless articles that exist only to rank high in SEO and get ad revenue.

    I too have been using the site:reddit.com method, but it sucks to essentially only have one for-profit website as the one I use to research things.



  • Yeah I installed Linux Mint Cinnamon today and for some reason I couldn’t get working drivers for my wifi card installed, so I tried Zorin instead. I really love the look and feel, but I’m still having the no wifi issue. Weird. If I can’t get it to work I may need to buy a new wireless adapter. Mine is the Asus PCE-AC68

    Edit: Fixed it by cutting all power to the power supply, waiting a few minutes, pushing the power button while there was no power to fully drain any remaining power from the board, then I flipped the power supply back on, turned on the computer, booted straight to bios, then to Linux, now everything works great.
