I know, but it’s a tecnical information that its now online. There are also a lot of alternatives out there which are free to use, like Nightcafe, also very good or even Dall-E (the first) or better Craiyon, completly free and some others which you can find in AlternativeTo. There is also ArtBreeder (no is text2image, it works in another manner), which is also paid, but permits a free use, but limit the up or downloads of images to mix, but there are a lot of images you can use for source and instead of download, well, use simply a screenshot ;)


What I said, with less words. No money >no rights. Current democracy is only the right to vote every 4 years the more o less spokesmen of the economic powers, There is no true sovereignty of the people, this is in the hands of the banks and the so-called markets.



In capitalism, behind each article of the universal declaration of human rights there is an addition “…only if you have money to pay for it”





Dall-e and Craiyon are OpenSource and free to use, while Dalle2 is paid proprietary soft (well. not very expensive anyway). There are currently a lot of text to image AI services out there, some free and others paid soft, like Nightcafe, Deepdream generator, Dreamstudio, Wombo Art, etc. I think that in the future with this AI hype there would be a lot more AI apps and services. Currently I use an AI search assistant, still in alpha but works like a charm, apart it’s the most private search engine I know, no ads, no trackers and a own Reader mode for websites that permits to read the page without the need to enter.


As I said, while there is no convincing answer available who committed this sabotage, one can only discuss speculation. At least I don’t rule out anything, not even that Putin launches nuclear missiles, even though this would render a country he wants to occupy unusable by radiation, not to mention the geopolitical consequences of starting a nuclear war.


They don’t have destroyed the own infrastructure, the destroyed the infastructure that carried gas to the EU. The gas bill of Russian consumers is less than $1.50 per month



I understand perfectly, but precisely cutting off gas to Europe allows Russia to put pressure on it, since it forces Europe to pay these horrendous prices to the US and they cannot get money to support Ukraine. It’s an easy game for Russia to send a submarine to put a couple of torpedoes into the pipelines, since they have it patrolling the Baltic and North Sea anyway. Both Russia and the US have plenty of reasons to cut off the tap to the EU, albeit for different reasons. In Spain and Portugal we are luckier as we do not depend on Russian gas, because we have a good infrastructure of our own renewable energy and because we receive gas from Algeria, but the rest of Europe expects a long winter.


The lost of gas isn’t a problem for Rusia, but a big problem for the EU. In any case, I do not dare to affirm the authorship of this, if it was Russia, as a response to pressure and boycotts from the EU or the US to alleviate their economic problem with money from the Europeans, capable of this sabotage are both. Pointing the culprits in this economic war between Russia and the US is risky until you have reliable evidence, which is not easy either with these “objective and independent” information media that we have. The first death in a war is always the truth.




Quite possible, both Russia, to put pressure on the West, and the US, to be able to sell their gas at prohibitive prices, have enough reasons for this sabotage.


I already predicted it in 2020, with the economic crisis due to COVID.


And every 20 years a big war to make a reset.


Only Chrome and some simple Chromium forks. Brave and Vivaldi are not affected. Worst for the devs of extensions, those who are based on v2 are eliminated in the Store and those extensions for security and privacy or similar are crippelt by Google. Like in the Google Play Store in Android, where the apps downloaded are only the versions “decaffeinated” of those from F-Droid. Google hate apps which blocks his trackings and advertisings.



uMatrix not longer exist, abandoned since years.


The Engine in Vivaldi has as base Chromium, but that didn’t mean that te maintance work is minor than in Gecko, see https://lemmy.ml/post/361337. Vivaldi is a coop own by it’s employees, they have ca 20 devs for 5 OS. Mozilla have their own engine, Gecko, but the work to update and patch is now rhe same as Vivaldi has with Chromium. You would be right that the Chromium browsers already have 99% of the work done, if Vivaldi were just a simple fork like others, which is not the case. The main expenses for a company, be it Mozilla or Vivaldi, is the infrastructure they have (server, tax expenses, personnel, etc.). Vivaldi has no outside investors and refuses to have any in order to preserve independence, von Tetzchner set up the cooperative with his own money. Now it is financed, as I said before, apart from donations (introduced at the insistence of users), sponsor links and default search engines (alliances with DDG, Ecosia and others), which pay when the user uses them, otherwise it is free. to delete them, apart a webstore with Merch. There are no advertisers involved, no google analytics or other google tracking or fingerprinting APIs. Apart Vivaldi offers for the user a own blog and a own webmail with 5Gb (xxxxx@vivaldi.net). Inbuild in the Browser a Feedreader, Mail client and Calendar, among other features which nobody else have or only partial with a lot of extensions. Yes, part of the UI is proprietary soft (~5%) but full aditable and customizable by the user (with knowledge in scripts). In the community they show how.
