Pinned ping

Greetings to all entities receiving this message. I’ve come to understand that some kind of is customary around here.

The most clever and short way I can put it is I’m a gamer boy becoming a Linux beard.
I’m kinda lost in life in general. I’m pretty sure I love techy stuff and nature. Thre’s probably gonna be a link to my homepage in the profile metadata at some point so you can read more about me and e-stalk me on all the places if you are into that sort of stuff.


❓ Poll: Have you ever had to report content in your feed to a fediverse mod?

Followup: how fast was the response time?

Boosts requested; I'm writing an article about the moderation of decentralized networks.

Lemmy is similar to sites like Reddit,, Raddle, or Hacker News: you subscribe to forums you're interested in, post links and discussions, then vote, and comment on them. Behind the scenes, it is very different; anyone can easily run a server, and all these servers are federated (think email), and connected to the same universe, called the Fediverse.

For a link aggregator, this means a user registered on one server can subscribe to forums on any other server, and can have discussions with users registered elsewhere.

Note: Federation is still in active development

Uh oh. I've gotten myself addicted to rimwolrd. Like to the point that I forget to eat.

There are people in a panic right now about COVID-19. While I agree it's wise to be careful, much of the hording I'm seeing right now is borderline insane. It does beg a question though:

How useful is your computer if the Internet were to go away?

I don't think that's going to happen any time soon, but I notice that almost everything I use has a networked component.

If the Internet went away tomorrow, how useful would your computer be? How many apps do you have that would keep working?

MS Windows – new "wormable" RCE attack on SMBv3:

– Affected are SMB servers and SMB clients.
– As a server-side workaround, Microsoft recommends to disable SMBv3 compression. There are no workarounds for SMB clients.
– At the moment, there are no patches available.
– CVE-2020-0796

someone at worked asked if all the failed sudo attempts actually get reported somewhere in our company

i said i dunno and i'll check because now i'm curious too

turns out they've all been going to me for 3 years but past me filtered them into a junk folder and never looked at them again because they were too annoying


Big up to everybody that wears make up regularly

CW: eye contact, selfie
