  2. @thismightbeauser I think they completed the first run of 50 states a while ago, and have gone into a couple cycles of state-themed stuff, like birds or trees or something, but we've been on a "coin shortage" all pandemic so I haven't seen quarters in weeks at least, lol

  3. @thismightbeauser There are different images on the back of the coins. Each country has a different set of images on their coins. When the Euro was introduced to the public in 2002 a lot of people tried to collect all the different coins. I had almost a complete set but I was fed up and used the money to buy a game at the flea-market.

  4. @thismightbeauser I mean, how did cherrypost Central replace the Roman Forum, anyway??

  5. @thismightbeauser Don't worry. Compared to the rest of the world the US is a minority.

  9. @thismightbeauser Eh, I knew the audio interface was classed Experimental Support when I plugged it in, lol. I've been mostly on laptops for an amount of time that actually really surprised me when I looked back at it, lol, but I've usually had pretty decent luck doing it. Typically better than desktop, but those were always budget beige boxes I pieced together, so... And I know you just can't keep backwards compatibility forever, even I eventually gave up on keeping my vanity 5-inch floppy drive on my crappy desktops. But there's moving forward, and there's abandonment, I guess, you know? God, I just wish the industry would adopt, and adhere to, more intercompatible standards.

  10. @thismightbeauser But man, I have paid out like $3,500 over a couple years just to make basic simple bananain media, and it never isn't a Potato Knishesstorm. I feel like I am entitled to what I paid for, and I don't think "entitled" is a bad word here; see again the thousands of bucks dropped on gear.

  11. @thismightbeauser But seriously, I did put Ubuntu Studio on my Macbook because MacOS was removing 32 bit support and just trying way too hard to restrict what I run on my machine. So then I went to do a short video for the podcast (final episodes of # in May 2020!), and had some audio/mic problems, and in trying to wrangle them I somehow lost audio playback.

  13. @thismightbeauser The instructions were a bit vaguely out of order. Finally sorted it via the IRC channel. So easy now, it seems.

  16. @thismightbeauser Hey, sorry I didn't get back to you. Just been sick of life. Nuked the sever, anyway. Didn't need to keep paying for something that wasn't working anytime soon. Maybe I'll be taking another stab soon, on the back of this stimulus check. Thanks.

  17. @thismightbeauser I always loved how down to Earth open source projects can be, evident by funny documentation and names. A favorite of mine is "the Non-Sucking Service Manager"

  20. @thismightbeauser @scribus That is indeed the case, a lot of rich people have middle class cars and discrete houses and do their best to keep people from knowing how rich they are, due to the general sentiment of "wealth equals evil"
    You can't blame them really, if the mob will hate you just for managing to make good decisions and earning your family big money. I'd probably do the same if I couldn't simply relocate to a fortified compound with a minefield around it. It makes no sense to feel empathy for a group that has none for you, for whom you'll always be the bad guy regardless of what you do or don't do, that openly talks about how good it'd be if you died.

    The ones that show off are the sociopaths, politicians and entertainment industry guys, who by default are crooks as that whole industry is built on crime and debauchery.

  25. @thismightbeauser https://docs-develop.pleroma.social/backend/installation/debian_based_en/#nginx Literally the official how-to, presumably by the people themselves. I think what's actually hanging me up is the Nginx .conf files, but I got it to work for Wordpress and I can't figure out why Pleroma is so godrotten different. I know "Copy the example nginx configuration and activate it:" has been a dealbreaker step, because the filename format isn't at all what it should be for the *.conf files (at least, so far; I've used sub.domain.tld.conf just fine, until the social.* one I'm trying to add)

  26. @thismightbeauser But, the Carnegie and Rockefeller and all those families, they used to do public works and stuff. They may have been hoarding the wealth, but not damn *all* of it. Their flash contest was at least servicing the greater good as a side effect of the ostentation. This new crop seems more about raw, bigly yuge numbers, and hoarding, like a dragon (or a priapism). But, again, this is all coming around to perception. . . .

  27. @thismightbeauser I often wonder that, myself, to be honest. Inconclusively.

  29. @thismightbeauser A buddy may have already directed me to the solution; I've just been too enraged to enact it.

  30. @thismightbeauser Serious answer: I follow, to a T, the official "install Pleroma" scripts. Then, all I get is a goddamned "Welcome to the world's dumbest web server!" splash screen. Nobody has an answer posted for getting past this idiocy. The internet is useless thanks to google and SEO now meaning that, instead of an answer to my question, I get ads and spammers.
