If you have a penchant for potato chips and the couch in times of trouble, consider an “opposite signal” strategy that requires little mental effort. When your mind tells you to numb yourself, come to life, instead: Exercise precisely when you most want to cocoon; eat nutrient-dense foods when you most crave junk. A simple way to start practicing this is to go outside for a walk at the moments when you feel the urge to curl up. None other than Hippocrates called walking “man’s best #medicine,” and researchers have long seen it as the cure for many of our physical, psychological, and even social ailments.
Yea, I was wondering if Putito gives his offspring a blanket pardon, does that mean that they have just plead guilty to every federal statute and law on the books? Since they haven’t been found guilty of anything(yet)?
In some places, this creates criminals, as it's illegal to access someone else's wifi without permission. (And since some phones auto connect to the strongest source, you may not know you're breaking the law.)
I watched Max Headroom & I never thought or even want Alexa or other spy bot in my house pretending to be a helper....WTH were people thinking with these? Maybe for invalids and old people who refuse to go to a home but jeezus who thought this was benign ?
Mine isn't, because the telematics in my 2015 Nissan Leaf rely on the 2G mobile network which was turned off in Australia in 2017. It still asks me for permission every time I start the car, but it doesn't matter what I answer as it's never going to get online again.
We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us!
We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.
Here's a few tips for getting started:
There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some #tags of subjects that interest you (maybe #music, #photography, #linux, or #activism ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
If you have any questions, post something with the #question or #help tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!
diaspora* has some very simple community guidelines, which we hope everyone will feel able to follow so that all members can have the best possible experience here.
We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!
hmm I can't even add a meme or a photo in a comment, let alone a video. This is disappointing.
I like this interface, but how is this platform a competitor for Fakebook ? I don't see it, to be honest. How can you add contacts if you don't even know their age, sex or location ? No profile pages ? No groups ? No feed ? Am I doing something wrong ? It's like I'm walking around in an abandoned factory :_-
I wonder why you can't add contacts (in d* you add people you want to follow, you can call them 'contacts') just click on a name and you will be redirected to the profile and activity page of that user. In the top right there is a button to 'add contact' There are no groups. You probably need to visit the diaspora community forums and search there for discussions about implementing groups. I can only guess there can be 2 reasons: the use of groups was rejected or there is simply not enough time for the devs to add it. Btw, the approach d* has taken is grouping contacts (called 'aspects'). This is something different than groups because with groups you join a group, with aspects you decide what contact you put in what aspect. The person affected has no say in this. It's just for you to be able to create groups of people you want your post be available for. And finally your feed: you get a feed when you follow other people and follow #hastags. I strongly suggest you actually read the first post of this discussion in order to get acquainted with how diaspora* works. Click the links in the opening post and you will find it is not that difficult, just different than Facebook. Anyway, enjoy!
Thanks guys. I guess I need to do some more research and read the tutorial. The whole "aspect" thing seems unpractical though.
So what you're saying is that I have to put individual people in different "aspects". Seems to me that aspects might become more relevant over time, but with so few people around, maybe, for now, it's not the best idea ?
One last thing : when I go to the profile page of say @Cpt. Barbarrel, what good does it do ? I don't learn anything about that person, not even A/S/L ? So does that mean you actually have to ask every new contact separately ?
See, I'd like to migrate my Facebook Groups about Politics and Satire and 80's music to another platform. I'll probably lose 80% of the followers if not more but I don't care. FB has pissed in my cornflakes for the last time 😀
I have to put individual people in different “aspects”.
You practically answered the question yourself 😀 Note that you can post publicly (then anyone can see the post) or to 1 or more aspects. Then only people in those aspects can see your post. Also if you post to 1 (or more) aspects, people you added to those aspects can not reshare your contribution. Only public posts can be reshared.
hella, peopul. @Petrus yes, I think some stuff are still difficult and not very friendly, but I registered first time in a pod 5 years ago, it has improved different things XD... mmmmh, but I don't think this reach the level of facebook functionality or even similar, idk (I'm not a programmer anyway) but I imagine servers are tiny in comparison. I'd like the way to connect or to link or to slide images or another things were more comfortable but I feel more ... how I say this... free to comment more things? idk, dark times arrived, it looks like morality Inquisition in social media XD haha, when people is damn mad deeply, like... I find it really problematic, like pressure's pot 🙁 hehe

@GemLog I wouldn't deny them their Swedishness, but Bircan's name and and both their faces tell me they're Swedish-plus.
They or their parents might have come to Sweden during the 60s industrial boom, but more likely during the 90s Balkan wars, as the 60s immigrants would have jobs in the factory, but the 90s immigrants often had to be entrepreneurial and create their own jobs, often by running restaurants.
In Prince Rupert, BC, Greek immigrants had most of the pizzerias. Everywhere is different and the same 😀 Those were private, but Panagopoulos Pizza was a large franchise here (they shortened their name just lately). In canada, it's a greek who claims to have invented https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaiian_pizza So I'm perfectly fine with Yugoslavian immigrants ruling pizzas in Sweden and HK! 😀 Who does the meatballs in Sweden? 😉
There is a factoid that claims that king Karl XII learned about meatballs and cabbage dolma while he was in "Turkey" (Bender, Moldova, Ottoman Empire), but from what I understand it's been shown more likely that these Swedish dishes are a mix of independent innovation and cultural osmosis rather than discrete memes imported in any particular singular event.
To me, a Swedish pizza has a dough of a very specific thickness, consistency and shape. The bread itself is primarily an excuse for piling ingredients on.
The integrated experience of the bread, tomato sauce and cheese is different from any US, Italian, German, Japanese or HK pizza I have had. Maybe part of it is the Swedish cheese, but it's also the sauce mix, how everything is applied etc.
The rim is an inch wide and somewhat crispy, but not very. The bottom is millimeter-thin, certainly thinner than 3 mm, and not crispy because of all the sauce and cheese.
The smell as I enter a Swedish pizzeria is unique and brings back a lifetime of experiences.
Yes, I see...Dr. Schesto-WITZ, somebodoy trys to distroy also my computer. I think that analphabets, Ali-Rabis-Scholz-Hitlers WITH DOG-SLAVES-POISON-AUSCHWITZ-SYSTEM told their D-slaves that they have to do this, because I tell their D slaves - WITHOUT DOG - the truth.

Swedish Covid death is at about 6000 people, but 2020 excess death is at about 3000 people. As the highest-risk group is the elderly, and the elder the person the higher the risk, many people had their life shortened, statistically, by a few months.
While Sweden has had a less effective response to the pandemic than Denmark, baseline death is still higher in Denmark.
Of course, living in a city that has managed to keep covid deaths on a level below the worst flu years, and whose peak infection levels in our three waves have still been below the low plateau infection levels in Sweden, to me a mortality increase by 3% still seems unnecessary.
I don't even think that death rates are the right parameter to judge the impact of covid: in countries with working healthcare systems most people who aren't elderly and already in bad health survive.
What most adults risk when they are unlucky is spending a few *months* in a hospital, of which weeks are spent under intense care (and in the worse cases full recovery can easily go into a year or so): that is going to have a big impact on both the lives of those people and their families and a significant cost on society at large.
I think that's even worse than people having their live shortened by a few months.
(and AFAIK your city is faring much better under that parameter, too, btw)
