@prologic@twtxt.net

If you turn “social media” into this dopamine drive cesspool full of likes, boosts, reshares and so forth, you basically end up abusing the worst parts of humanity.

👍 There is such a problem. And for some reason it’s not being addressed at all. The Pinafore web client for Mastodon, for example, has settings designed to reduce the addictive or disturbing aspects of social media. They can hide the number of subscribers, reposts, or hide notifications.

It certainly doesn’t solve the problem, but at least someone paid attention to it.

@prologic@twtxt.net I fell in love with cryptocurrencies after I found myself cut off from the global financial system, and foreign exchange transactions within the country were frozen, i.e. I can neither buy dollars, nor send them, nor pay for servers abroad. In such a situation, one no longer thinks about the inefficient energy consumption of blockchain 😄 Although I agree that it is inefficient in this regard. But there are no alternatives )

In-reply-to » Hi. Glad to welcome you here!

@prologic@twtxt.net Hi 😊 Good to see you again! In general things are good, a little tired of the covid restrictions and I am insanely upset by the global chip shortage because of this good computer hardware becomes less available + the ruble exchange rate is storming.

How about you, what’s new? I periodically glance over here at twtxt )

Hi! It’s been a long time since I’ve looked here.

Meanwhile, it’s hot in Russia, with Moscow breaking a century-old temperature record. It’s unbearable to work from home in this weather 🔥

In-reply-to » So sorry @usr for the trouble. Promise next on my list of things to do is purchase and UPS. I'll also be improving the circuits i my home and having my server room on it's own circuit.

@prologic@twtxt.net It’s going to be awesome! By the way, I love looking at homelab photos, spend my free time at /r/homelab. Unfortunately, I can’t afford to keep the equipment at home 😔

@prologic@twtxt.net It’s okay, no need to apologize. I am sympathetic to such situations and never complain about projects (especially cool ones like twtxt) that are kept on people’s enthusiasm and at their own expense.

I saw a video of James Burke speaking, and as an aside, he recalled Bill Gates’ prediction of “640K ought to be enough for anybody. How funny it sounds now 😁

In-reply-to » @usr Hello! 👋 Welcome to my Pod! 🤗

@prologic@twtxt.net @lyxal@twtxt.net First of all because of minimalism and ease of use. Then I like to try something new.
Well, the main reason why I’m here. Before that I lived in fediverse. But due to the blocking of Twitter by the Russian authorities, everyone began to move to fediverse and it became somewhat uncomfortable for me there. It’s certainly cool that users find alternatives to twitter, but it also changes the manner of communication and becomes less friendly.
