    Yeah, I don't follow youtube creators so I wouldn't know. Doesn't seem worth my time.

    While it is unfortunate that the quality of season 2 will most likely decrease a lot, I'm not too bothered by that. Murata's version of the manga is so good that I don't feel the need for an anime. In the meanwhile, ONE's other work (Mob Psycho 100) is also being animated and both seasons are godlike in terms of design and animation. Season 2 is at its climax, this week's episode was the best 20 minutes of Japanese animation that I have ever watched.

    Why does everything on the Internet have to be corrupted and turned for someone's profit in the end? I still remember when my middle school teachers continously warned students to not cite stuff from Wikipedia because anyone could had written it. Fast forward to the present, lots of university professors say that the mathematics pages on Wikipedia are really good starting points to learn about a topic. And now it seems that by the time I have children of my own I will have to warn them to read the Talk page of any Wikipeadia article before consuming the information there. This is just scary.

    Those popular subreddits don't really bother me. Their contents rarely if ever leak to the ones that I follow. But yeah, the quality of discussion on Reddit overall is many levels below the one that we can find here. But the ads and tracking are the main reason for me to want to leave. Just think about the amount of aggregated information from people around the world that reddit is able to provide if one pays enough.

    Yeah, that's something that you should be aware of before buying one. The wiki at r/xiaomi is really helpful in that regard.

    I was actively looking for a reddit alternative, as their recent decisions really started to bother me. I think it was around the time they started having people try their redesign. Then I found a thread in r/redditalternatives (i'm not sure) where some Tildes invitations had been given, but I was too late to get one. I went to read the Technical Goals of the project and each line just made sense to me, so I PMed an admin for an invite and he replied with a code :)

    Xiaomi phones are budget and get the job done in my opinion. Especially their Redmi sub-brand.

    They still have a looong way to go if they want some of that market. Right now, only privacy seeking and FOSS enthusiast users are willing to use it, despite all of its problems.

    Early this year I suggested using riot in my company instead of skype and slack. After one day of use everyone was complaining about how untuitive and full of bugs it was. The company then decided to continue using Skype as the oficial tool.

  10. Comment on Why I Love Tildes: Quality in ~tildes

    Should I feel bad for being mainly a lurker? I enjoy reading other people's opinions, but almost never feel the need to add mine to the conversation.

    What's wrong with web scraping? The accounts here aren't directly connected to anything. People would only get the idea of whats discussed here, not who are the people discussing it.

    While it's not the type of music that I listen to daily I've got to say that she's really talented, and the sound of a Portuguese guitar (I think) is always really cool.

    I started using emacs, about a year ago, mostly because of orgmode. Now I use emacs for coding and in the future I'm going to use it for writing latex.

    But emacs takes a lot of its user time. Only use it if you are willing to learn it.
