    Im very much in the dark or even black theme territory. Use dark applications as much as possible + dark reader for Firefox + substratum for android. I just find it easier on the eyes I guess

    The government has criticised Facebook for taking too long — just over an hour — to remove the Christchurch shooter's video.

    1 hour isn't really that bad considering the amount of content that gets uploaded to facebook in a day.

    Bad things being posted is just a result of having a place where you can post anything. I don't like facebook or zucky one bit, but this is just harsh.

    And this kind of punishment for someone else uploading bad content onto a website essentially makes it impossible for a small website to host user uploaded content. If Facebook and YouTube aren't perfect at censorship, then how can a smaller site possibly do it.

    or we could just not censor the internet

    Team fortress 2. Recently took a break for a bit, but I've come back now. As fun as always and I wish valve would update the damn thing.

    Chrono free and quite fun. It would be an amazing party game if it had support for more players.

    Lollipop chainsaw. More self aware ridiculousness. But good fun. I should point out that just because something is ironic, doesn't mean people arent still probably tickling their pickles to it.

  6. Comment on Tildes, what is your take on current terms of copyright? in ~talk

    ~20 years is the longest copyright really should last for in my opinion.

    Copyright needs to encourage creativity and use of copyrighted content in fair and creative ways without allowing knockoffs. I know im being a bit vague here.

    And on the topic of copyright, scrap DRM. It really gets in the way of using and owning your own content.

    The internet is a global thing, so NZ doesn't have much power to censor it. But even if it were a large country like America, it still wouldnt work.

    I never said that once you decided to never have children you should then permit yourself to do whatever.

    The thing about kids is that they will grow up and make more kids. And more. And more. And I dont see how a theoretically inifinite amount of children (assuming the sun doesnt explode and kill us all) can be better than anything else I could do in my lifetime.

    Of course that by no means means that it gives you a free excuse to do whatever. I said single best thing, not only thing you can do.

    Im against having kids, but im not going to stop anyone from doing so. Consider adopting instead. Or getting a pet.

    I think the single best thing to do for the environment would be to not have kids. Adopt if you really want one.

    I dont use channels with music videos / intro sounds. And as for the audio quality, my headphones are shitty so its fine for me.

    My phone maybe?

    Lg v20 us996 factory unlocked.

    Decent cameras + lineage os + SD card + ir blaster + fancy audio DAC + hotswapable battery on the lineage kernel.

    Also an FM radio, but it doesnt work on custom roms.

    It definitely isnt for everyone, but I like it.

    I then use syncthing to move it onto my phone automatically.

    If you are worried about disk space, use syncthings .stignore file to not sync what you dont want.
