Would you be against me trying a server restart right now? Or at least restarting cassandra and a few other services?

Yes we're aware of the issue and working to resolve it, thank you. It's some kind of new bug.

/u/d3rr there's a couple other people having the issue now

I've been trying to learn what I call "improv piano" which is to be able to play songs just by hearing them and practicing enough times, or just be able to make up random music that sounds half-way decent as you go.

I really sucked at it at first, but now it's starting to actually get good. It's way more fun than reading bar-staff sheet music. The other day I figured out how to play "Chariots of Fire" in about 25 minutes just by listening to it on repeat and futzing around with the keys until I could figure out all the patterns. I don't think I'll try to play piano with sheet music ever again, tbh

Yeah we could trim that list down to just the highlights, or maybe just get rid of it entirely. I never click things from the buttons, I always just type it in, or it's auto-filled in because I post from a sub. Does anyone else? It's kind of just a feature we inherited from the open-source

Sounds cool. Especially 3D Printing

Why is the front page just the same few posts for days? by Ground_Fawn in SaidIt

[–]magnora7 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

On the main page, people should check out the "new" tab at the top, which shows the newest posts on saidit. That way you can see every single post if you want, and it's a great way to see fresh content.

Then also in that same list of tabs you can check "comments" and it'll show the newest comments on the whole site!

These two ways make it a lot easier to find activity.

And like d3rr said the top stuff is way more upvoted than the rest because of the influx of new users, so it's hanging out for an extra-long time.

How can they sue us for copyright when we are losing money by running it? It's not a business, it's a non-profit, and those have different rules. We're following the open-source rules for reddit's code to the letter. I don't think an LLC provides nearly the protection you think it does, and I speak from experience.

All those sound awesome. One for Board Games would be cool too.

Yes, all the addresses we have are up to date for our cryptocurrency donation page, I double-checked them recently. Maybe you can try sending a very small amount and verify if you're worried about it getting lost, I can verify that I received it.

This is of course if you want to donate, which is up to you. I appreciate you thinking of us.

If you aren't running this as a proper business, you are making yourself personally liable for anything that happens on this site.

I don't think that statement is accurate, in my understanding. I can see where you're coming from, but I think you're a bit misguided. What would we get in trouble for, what is this scenario you're imagining that incorporating or forming an LLC would protect us from?

We're working on a distributed solution where it would be peer-hosted so it could never be shut down. But that could be a year or two away as the technology is very new.
