👨‍💻 Matthieu V. is there any people that moved to another country ? how was your experience ? (might go through this soon)
Xy I moved to China for a few years. It was an incredible experience and I absolutely recommend leaving your bubble (everyone has one whether they like to admit it or not). The one piece of advice I would leave for you would be to always be prepared for a transition back home, or a new home. It's been quite difficult for me to find the same level of work back home and the pandemic has not helped at all. Best of luck to you!
Miso What's your current setup? (Computer, OS?)
Xy ryzen 3600, gtx 1660 super, 16gb ddr4-3600, 1tb nvme. i really enjoy connecting to this machine via parsec from other devices (including a raspberry pi 3), but would love to find an open source replacement that works as well as parsec does.
😏 Yt L. Why is subreply so positive compared to Twitter which is often negative? Is it purely like and retweet counts? Number of users?
Xy my hypothesis has always been that when the mainstream begins to flood a platform, it brings negativity and a lower quality of content. what makes the world interesting? it's the one-offs, the unique perspectives and the mavericks. some may call this the eternal september - en.wikipedia.org/w...
😶 Pipas_ Everything on trending is from 1 or 2 days ago, can we get a better discovery page that is not search but it's more up to date than the Trending tab?
Xy that's because there's just not much volume on the site yet. if you check the 'search' page, it shows you all posts made. currently, the most recent 15 posts to this site were made in the past 12 hours.
🎲 James York Ooooh, good question. Apart from Chrono I think Frog, just for the way he talks and his sad story.
Ganesh Khade Have you tried Tridactyl?
Xy my memory is poor, but i recall vimium having stopped working when firefox quantum was released and i think tridactyl was the replacement i tried. months later, vimium began working again and i switched back, but i can't remember what it was about tridactyl that i didn't like (or if that was even the extension i used at all).
Ganesh Khade What chrome extensions/firefox extensions do you use?
Xy firefox: ublock origin, dark reader, bypass paywalls clean, vimium
🎣 Fish do you know any with a similar feel to diaries? looking thru tech section but not finding much
Xy maybe try pretendradio.org -- true crime stories about people pretending to be someone else
🧉 Martin Darknet Diaries looks good, going to check that out, thanks.
Xy can confirm this is a great podcast
📉 Bill Have you ordered off bikesdirect? I've been really close to in wanting to replace my bike but haven't yet.
Xy i have not, but a good friend of mine who is very knowledgeable about bikes (knowledgeable enough to have considered opening up his own bike shop) has purchased one of their higher end carbon road bikes and has praised them for their value.
Joseph Gilmore Thanks for recommendation. I'll bookmark it. It's going to have to be a next year thing. Currently saving money for skis and a ski pass. I just moved to Utah
Xy awesome! good luck to you in utah.
Xy if you're looking for a new touring bike, bikesdirect.com/pr... are pretty solid for the price. i would replace the saddle and pedals, but their prices for a new bike are very good. camping equipment can be quite expensive, but fortunately once you're out on the road, you're really only paying for food and some camping sites here and there.

Joseph Gilmore Have you done much bike touring yourself? Where have you gone? It's something I really want to get into but currently don't have the money for a new bike or equipment.
Xy i have only done one long, unsupported tour around the pacific nw with a group of buddies, but i ride pretty frequently around my current city. once it's easier and safer to travel internationally, my dream is to ride the silk road. i purchased my current touring bike (miyata 1000lt) used for about $500 a decade ago from a really nice guy off craigslist who had ridden it from london to singapore.
🧬 Thomas This sounds intriguing. Any particular sorts of streams?
Xy i really enjoy bike touring, so right now i have twitch.tv/hitch in the background. he's cycling across canada, currently on day of a ~3mo journey. i also like twitch.tv/healthygamer_gg who is a harvard trained psychiatrist discussing mental health issues with streamers.
🦄 Chip Uni What (if anything) do you listen to while you're programming, or doing work that requires a lot of concentration?
Xy i like having twitch irl streams running in the background that i don't need to pay attention to. it gives me that coffee shop vibe i miss, which i know not everyone enjoys, but works for me.
💻 Kernel There are VPS for that cheap? That website is at least 8$ for me
Xy you can regularly find vps for this price and less on lowendtalk.com
