I wouldn’t be so sure. China has been gradually making it easier for non-Chinese people, even Westerners, to live and work there lately, whereas previously it was extremely closed off and basically no one could get any sort of residence. Whether this is directly in response to an influx of people wanting to move to China or for some other reason I’m not sure though.


Again, if the government thinks they can just force strikers to go back to work, that means there is no freedom of assembly or freedom to protest! So stop saying SK has those.


Worker exploitation or wage slavery? It doesn’t have an official specific name but definitely falls under those.


Because they desperately want to avoid a brain drain to China. Former Chinese nationals who went to school in the West and stayed in Western academia are already going back in droves because of, oh I don’t know, the full-on mask off Asian hate in conjunction with the blatant science denialism in the West maybe, and it’s honestly a matter of time before a ton of non-Chinese people start seeking academic careers in China too, basically a reverse to how Chinese people were seeking careers in the West (before the West really started going to shit and prompted a ton of them to go back).


I collect monopoly games.

No offence, genuinely curious: why?







This is why SciHub and piracy in general is the greatest contribution to human knowledge since the invention of writing.

Lol, months after Canada already released her back to China. So it’s 100% just “we won’t admit defeat so we’ll pretend we meant to do that!”


Because Xiaomi isn’t as big of a competitor to Western companies than Huawei. Huawei produces servers, networking equipment, and other enterprise level tech, and they’re both very good at it and only one of a handful of companies producing some of the stuff they do (the other ones being Western companies). Xiaomi produces mostly consumer electronics that frankly is barely relevant in the West compared to Western companies because there is so much more competition from others.

Basically, if you can eliminate one player out of five where you have your fingers in the other four, that’s way more beneficial to you than trying to eliminate one player out of five hundred, even if you have your fingers in all 499 other ones.



Not including combinations like: Newpipe + VLC

Straight up NewPipe then?

No seriously, it has literally everything you’re asking for. Access to a ton of songs, podcasts, and more, and integrated player that works in the background, downloading to mp3 and opus files offline, recommendations in the form of related videos, open source frontend.


The old reliable:

  1. Torrent or otherwise pirate mp3s

  2. Play using open source media player

I’ve honestly not found a better option, at least for my preferences.


Most English Lemmy Instances Does Not Offer Register Now Service

Because, we’ve had multiple brigades from probably 4chan with people posting Nazi propaganda, and, I wish I was making this up, gore and scat porn. Literally as soon as an instance pops up it gets flooded with that. Which prompts established instances to block it until it restricts signups.

If You Dig Deeper You Will Find that a lot of the instances in the page block other instances, meaning even if the user could register at one instances he will not be able to even interact With the whole community.

Working as intended. #wontfix The whole point of the fediverse is, your server talks to who you want to talk to and block who you want to block.

We don’t want a few huge “catch-all” instances where literally everyone goes. We want many, small, niche instances. Again, that’s the point of the fediverse. We don’t want to be just like the mainstream social medias but with a decentralisation gimmick, we want the decentralisation to be meaningful.


Only issue is there’s no real accredation system for computer repair outside of major IT firms aimed at maintaining entire fleets of computers for an enterprise level that you definitely can’t afford. Like, if there were more authorised repair shop programs by major brands or a central nonprofit org or union overseeing this, it wouldn’t be as much of a problem.


How dare you bring logic into this propaganda and censorship free Western Christian server?! Those tanks are clearly in the process of exterminating Uyghur Tibetans in Taiwanese Hong Kong!!!1!!1!


This isn’t Reddit? They’re clearly screenshots of news sites.


In what way is this hate speech, bigotry, or propaganda?


That or you go back on the return date only to find out they refused to repair it because it won’t boot without a drive so “there was nothing we could do”

(because they totally can’t just insert one of their own boot drives they have on hand, with diagnostic tools and a known good OS installation, you know, like the ones any real IT repair business should be using anyway).



Think about this next time CNN says piracy is wrong.

What's the best DVD ripping software for Linux and how the hell do you even get it installed?
I'm looking to make a complete backup of my family's DVD and CD libraries by turning them into plain unencrypted media files that can just be played by whatever software. And I *just might* create torrents for some of the ones that don't already have established highly seeded torrents. Except, I've been trying all day on and off get a DVD ripper *with automatic decryption* set up on my machine and can't figure it out. I use Fedora, and none of the ones I read about are on the standard package manager, probably because Fedora doesn't want to get sued. I have tried the source code for the major ones but again, they have next to no official or even unofficial documentation, need dependencies which I can't figure out where to get, or the compile or run crashes with cryptic errors, or errors out when . Web searching has been less than helpful with any of these problems. Has anyone here gotten a decrypting DVD ripper working on Linux? Can you share what steps you took, or what documentation/tutorial you followed? I really don't want to have to use Windows or proprietary software for this, because for the former, it's... Windows, and for the latter, I don't trust it because piracy software can be shady AF.
