I am very typical earthling. I like earth food and earth drink and earth sports and earth media. Im all about earth things because I am so typical and earthling. so typical as to be very boring and not worth investigating or looking into because I am definately from earth.

now? its been discussed as possible for awhile. now probable or practical. nope. lots of energy and bad effects of energy.

there is nothing wrong with the blockchain. cryptos main problem is the proof of work using to much energy. blockchain to actually do work with the energy it uses efficiently is great.

Can somebody explain why game makers don't start their own companies together?

It seems like every other week a game studio is massively laying off employees; sometimes after years of development. What I’m reading is that it’s a quick way to lower expenses and pad the investors’ pockets, flooding the market with developers and reducing their value, to then hire them back a few months later at lower...

@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Why does anyone who works not make their own company? It takes capital and a certain skill set as well as a risk tolerance.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Yeah its hard to read as quote spiders unquote quote inca city unquote. New articles should not be doing this. geez at least put so called or something.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

So far don't see the option but ready to jump on it.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

actually I don't. I read this on kbinmeta and thought it was a general improvement to kbin. oh well.

I don't use a smartphone. im a smartphone luddite. Heck I don't even have a cell phone on me often unless I know I need it (expecting a call or oncall)

the star trek original series phaser was well done. most everything is part of the type1 that is detachable with a plastic cover that just had a bit of led to make it a type2. The high end lightsabers were nice but pricey. Had a power outage and a green one lit up things pretty good but you could look right at it and not be blinded.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

it got better halfway through or so (as a person who never played the games) but really had to just go with the ridiculousness of the world.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

yeah. once I treated it as more a fantasy show and less a scifi it greatly improved my experience.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

thanks. I actually was seeing something similar at the start of the weekend but it sorta reveresed on me where sub works and newest gives me the 404. I have been looking through my sub and I am seeing lemmy mags. Thanks for the feedback.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

I saw some comments around this and did seem about the same time the 404's started. maybe thats it.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

its open source. it can and has been forked. he can do what he likes. The call for moderation made sense but code is different. Granted I think he should bring in help for himself but that is for him to decide.

/kbin another quick update (kbin.social)

Good morning, last week we managed to address pressing issues related to infrastructure. Thank you once again for your assistance, Piotr. I will continue work in this area, but it will be less invasive and cumbersome. I have restored the test environments and am slowly getting back into coding....

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

The time away almost seems like a benefit now. It gave people a chance to grumble and you have responded to many of the complaints from that time in this one post. Great on you for listening and responding to the community.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

I have literally never seen posts like that. I like kbin well enough and tend to defend it somewhat but trolls/shilling thats just redic.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

many forks have merged improvements from the other project in both directions when the licenses allow for it.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Thats not what you describe. Troll is used the way you did in my response to you. A reference to other people trolling in some other threads. Not accusations of the main post being a troll. At least that is the way im reading it. I guess I just assume your first comment was refering to more blatant type posts or replies.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

is it ok to discuss other games in relation. doom, doom2, and xwing/tiefighter are at a special place for me.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

im going to say you are about 44.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

you know I think one of the smarter things facebook did was only allowing edu emails initially or google allowing current users to send invites.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

not for spammers. it was a nice first level filter till they had the resources to do more effective spam fighting (which they don't do all that well)

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

I did not work at either at levels where I would know their reasons but whatever their reasons it did make growth in the start slow and steady.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Why don't automated spam systems use them then? Its easy for an individual but its not super automately like google. At least at my alma matter its not.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

yeah thats for an an individual though. A robotic spam account that needs to make a thousand accounts automatically is not going to make one so easily. spam from individuals is much easier to deal with than machine spam.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Yeah I had no idea they could be bought it bulk. I thought you had to be registered. Granted there are all the for profit colleges now. Would not be surprised if they straight sold them directly.

RTR#52 Busy month (kbin.social)

This month, I managed to wrap up many overdue matters. It seems to me that I responded to the majority of lingering emails, and a few issues turned out to be so important that they took a few extra days. I also dealt with [a certain aspect related to the project, about which I'll be able to share more in a few weeks....

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Good luck with the procedure. medical things suck.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

yup one of those mental blindness things I think. Even after you said I could not find it and then did a control f and low and behold its like right there. don't know how I did not see it. even has a mail icon.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

yeah morgunkorn explained it and I was just having some mental blindness or something. im smacking my head at how its location is right where you would think it would be. don't know how I missed it.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

thanks. that is good to know. its a rare thing but once in awhile I want to message someone.

url link blocking. What happened to it. (kbin.social)

So when someone submitted a url at least at one point it would show up on the right and you could block it. So if someone posted a newsweek link you could block any link postings from like newsweek.com or maybe reddit.com or google.com. Lately though I have not been able to. It seemed to disapear at some point. I have not seen...

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

yeah it definately existed at one point and was likely the most effective blocking tool compared to user level and magazine level.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

thank you so much. I guess its just not as obvious as before.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Honestly I would be fine if new accounts could not post at all for a bit. There was a big issue of no one posting content when folks were coming here from reddit. I think that is because it was regular folk and many of us follow a pattern of hanging out and getting comfortable and then replying to stuff and eventually posting stuff. this is how real human beings are which is why people were sorta gung ho to bot copy pasta from reddit but I like how humans are. Granted personality will effect this. type A maybe will engage sooner or such. Anyway I would have been fine if I could read only for a week and then reply only for a month and then finally be allowed to post. If someone becomes a mod non of these limits would apply to magazines they mod. Not sure how this would work with federation though. I still would love to sign up for others block lists. I like this user so I want to auto block anyone they block. I really like things to be controllable at the user level.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

thank you. I was thinking in terms of an account so had not thought to report it from a message standpoint which on hindsite makes more sense.

RTR#51 End of a short break (kbin.social)

Last week, I dealt with formalities related to the project and a few personal matters associated with the new year. Unfortunately, there was quite a lot to handle. Today is the last day I'm dealing with this, and I'm returning to the code for the regular devlogs. I'll also take care of current matters on the instance. On Tuesday...

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

I get dealing with personal matters. Gotta take care of yourself and your loved ones.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

I use a browser on pc and its never obscured the text once expanded for me.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

yeah if it runs windows then to me its not a steamdeck competitor.

[UPDATE] Issues with the functioning of kbin.social (kbin.social)

The main issues with the improper functioning of the instance have been resolved, but it led to additional complications. Currently, using the instance should be quite comfortable, but I will continue to work intensively on a comprehensive solution for the next few days. Therefore, occasional interruptions or errors may still...

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Thank you so much ernest. I was able to go to my subscriptions, and all, and notifications today and look at them by all and all the normal stuff. For a second there I thought there was something going on!!!

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

I am such an idiot but I only just realized that maybe following you might make sure I see these things that much earlier.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

Im wondering how this went. Im assuming the issue must be more difficult than anticipated.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

things have seemed to have gotten back to normal at some point today for me.

HubertManne,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

doh. literally after commenting. 404's galore.
