đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel I had an amazing hike this afternoon. Reminder to self: get out of the damn house more often and live!
Dan There's a youtube channel called "Crime Pays But Botany Doesn't" and it's so relaxing and interesting to watch. The dude running it knows his stuff and is a bit of a character, but hot damn does it get me excited for going outdoors and actually enjoying nature instead of enjoying just not being cooped up. He loves plants and wants you to love them too.
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel Almost completed my sign up for tilde.town and then accidentally went back one page, deleting all my answers.
👨‍đŸ’ģ🎧 Matthieu V. I had an account there ! But I lost my SSH key ):
Rsm Ouch!
⌨ī¸ Joseph I applied here and at tilde.club after reading this. Both seem like such cool little corners of the Internet.
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel Discovered Scarfolk today (scarfolk.blogspot.com). For more information please reread this post.
🤔✍ī¸ David Lord. That first post about the children spooked me out.
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel "Writing is like thinking in bullet time." -ohad
🗨🐒 Fui Can you explain the meaning of that?
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel I really enjoy looking at random Subreplier's personal websites. There is no better motivator to improve yourself than looking at what awesome stuff people have built/achieved/learnt.
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel RIP CloudFlare DNS. This is why we should have a decentralized internet.
đŸĩ David It is decentralised. I use a different DNS, no impact at all.
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel A little pick-me-up if you had a shitty Wednesday, my hamster being cute: streamable.com/jv2ivx
🤔✍ī¸ David Your hamster is cute. Also, your website is AWESOME! I can't explore all of it right now (tight work schedule) but I'll make sure to get to it after my tasks are done. Super neat
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel Do we really need to work 20+ years to earn the right to call a house 'home'? Isn't there a better way to contribute to society and have a fulfilling life?
🌋 Pod Unk In Canada real estate has drained investment capital from other, more productive (in terms of GDP growth) uses of capital. I argue that getting a mortgage and buying a house is a large _consumption_ of capital that doesn't contribute as much as it could to society.
🕹ī¸ Andrew There are some people who manage to do remote work (like programming or coding) and they travel the world and stay in different places instead. I always thought that was a cool way to live.
Philip Are you saying you can't feel at home in a rented place?
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel nothing is private here ;)
đŸ’ģđŸĨž Kernel I see that posts appear in trending when two people reply multiple times to each other. What is the current requirement for a chain of posts to appear in trending? I think that only posts with multiple unique people replying should appear in that section.
☕✍ī¸ David Antoine Well, a trending discussion between only two people could still be interesting to read. Which in turn could eventually see other people popping up in the thread. Like a discussion seed... Though if you "de-prioritize" those we could still look in the search tab I guess. Or the feed with highly replied posts. Not sure what's the most convinient...
🏒 Lucian Marin An interesting idea, a thread will need a counter for unique people replying. Trending feed shows the top 15 threads from the last 30 with at least one reply.
