@sid
That's a good question. I use the name of the subreddits I find them on in the first place (or the sub it would be fit for), than the subject (lewd, depression, fantasy..), and the 'category' like pepe, cage, conversation... I'm not sure about it though, do you have any suggestion?

I like . When I see one I like I want the file, not just see it pass by. One problem I had was how to organize them.

I tried a few ways, including hydra network, but too complicated and setting up your own server was a mess.

Finally, yesterday it dawned on me: I just need something to tag in the metadata!

So I use
* shotwell, a media manager in the repo, which has the option to write the tags in the file.

* to back up and sync with my mobile

* a photo manager, a app available on f-droid which can also search by tag (admittedly, people are not very imaginative with names often =D)

And now my devices are synced, memes are backed up, my memes are tagged, and I feel better with my data hoarding instinct <3

@theodraxis
Thanks, a nice and simple article.

However, a doubt, we are constantly doing more than a thing at a time, how is multitasking defined for the purpose of the studies? Like, I sometimes listen to podcasts while walking or on the bicycle ( or cleaning, or...), and I often read and eat, I mean what are the boundaries between an efficient multitasking and a dangerously inefficient one?

@starbreaker it does. But you know, you start small, is a marathon not a sprint

r/waterniggas got quarantined by the admins. Drinking water is shocking and possibly offensive

This day started off with a headache, and was downhill from there.

Stay hydrated.

@HerraBRE Sorry to hear that. You daughter is already testing you!

@starbreaker mesh wifi network is a thing, in some areas coverage is actually pretty good

@HerraBRE
This goes both for big and small solutions alike. The lack of a shared way of measuring the environmental impact is problematic but I'm not sure is solvable: factors are a lot, and hard to reduce in simple formulas.

Odum gave it a good shot, ending up with a system which is interesting but IMHO not usable.

Measuring carbon footprint in some other way, such as the direct impact, is oblivious to the indirect effects... it's a topic I'm thinking a lot lately, and in some sectors (I mainly know the agricultural one) some standards are being developed which may be a good start.

@GreenandBlack @switchingsocial

Thanks, is new but seems promising, I'll keep an eye on it!

@dev awesome to see project is still on! Thanks!

@eshton
What do you mean? I meant extinction of whole species

@eshton
Can't you just think of something worth crying for, for the sake of it?
Like the extinction of the tarpian, or the caspian tiger. Or, idk, the global loss of soil, or all the amazing people in the history of mankind who are almost forgot(I'm sure you know some in your field)... and then you can also stop crying 'cause we still have many species and we can save then, we still have soil and we can increase it, and those people are almost forgot, but not quite yet

@prismo we are humans, we screw up from time to time, sometimes in a spectacular way and that's ok.

I'm sure the community will support you in this moment.

Looking forward to the extended post.

@dazinism no worries, I found some nice stuff and bad stuff in there, mostly it was the only one that popped into my mind with a POC =D

@js290 @dazinism @rynras

I see.

I think he is still useful now, I know people who are getting more interested into scientific matters, or that really digged the Cosmos episode on climate change and understood more about it thanks to him.

If for you talking favorably of science (in your words evangelizing of scientism) is something that is not compatible with being useful, I guess he is not so by your definition.

Message to New Members

Welcome to the Qoto Mastodon instance, its like twitter but better!

Please don't hesitate to Direct Message me or tag me in Toots (what we call tweets here) if you have any questions or even if you just want to chat.

If you are new to Mastodon you may want to check out this official getting started guide: https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/User-guide.md

We are a free speech, no censorship zone. Feel free to talk about whatever you want, say whatever you want, as long as it is legal you wont ever get banned from the server. With that said we do have a few rules: No spam, and no using multiple accounts to circumvent personal bans.

This server isnt a typical mastodon server either. I have personally modified the code on this server to give it several unique features you wont find on other servers.

If you are new to Mastodon here is some useful info.

First off, if your coming from Twitter and you'd prefer an interface that looks exactly like twitter, then just go here and login with your Qoto credential: https://halcyon.qoto.org/ No need to create an account there, your account on this server will work just fine. Just enter your username in the following format @[username]@qoto.org so for me it would be @freemo But personally I think our default skin here is way better.

Basically Mastodon is a decentralized twitter. That means anyone can run a server (like Qoto) that people can sign up to and use just like twitter. The unique part is how the servers talk to each other.

If you want to tag someone on the same server as you then you can just do @user however if you want to specify someone on a different server you can do @user@server. If someone follows you or mentions you on any server on the internet you'll get notified right here. So my full tag is @freemo@qoto.org.

So now a bit about the timelines, there are three (unlike twitter there is just one): Home, Local, Federated.

The Home timeline is just like what you'd expect on twitter, that is, everyone you are following.

The local timeline is any post made by anyone on your local server.

The federated timeline is what is cool. It combines the timeline of everyone on the server into one. This way you can see the posts of everyone that is followed by anyone on the server (assuming the post is public). So this timeline is a close representation of everyone on the internet who has Mastadon (though not really). Moreover we have a bot here that goes around and federates with everyone it can find, so our Federated Feed is rather robust covering thousands of instances.

Only other thing that is unique is listed vs unlisted posts. You have normal privacy settings like on twitter but you also can set a post to be listed or unlisted. If it is listed it acts just as i described. If it is unlisted then it acts just as a normal tweet would but it doesnt show up on local or federated timelines anywhere.

Also this goes without saying, but don't be racist, sexist, hateful, and don't harass people. Its a pretty shitty thing to do, don't be shitty!

The following is the list of QOTO administrators/moderators.
  • @freemo@qoto.org
  • @absolutus@qoto.org
  • @arteteco@qoto.org
  • @Surasanji@qoto.org
  • @hashtaggrammar@qoto.org
Note: The account @QOTO@qoto.org listed as the administrator is NOT an actively monitored account. It was selected so as not to show favoritism among our moderator group, we are a democracy and even our administrators and moderators are held to the same high standards of decency as the rest of the community.
