It won't be long until I start the development of #LiBraille, a cross-platform, GPL-licensed braille transcription program, like #Duxbury or #BrailleBlaster. Not a big market, but Linux needs a premiere tool in this area, and some of the code is already written in OSI compliant libraries.

This is a school project, so I won't be able to release the code straight away; But I'll be sure to post updates on this account as it develops. The planning's almost done, it's nearly #programming time.

Survey time! On what platform(s) do you use LibreOffice?

So much for waiting untill June 3rd. Freedom Internet alive and kicking on Goeree-Overflakkee :-)

Inaugural Post for Lemmy, a decentralized, easily self-hostable #reddit / link aggregator alternative, intended to work in the #fediverse:


My "How to fight back against Google AMP" made it to the top of Hacker News yesterday few minutes after being submitted but was demoted as there's another "big thread from 6 months ago". It's a fine rule but AMP deserves to be talked about every day 🀣

I'm a doctor now! Not the kind that is of any use in a global pandemic, nor the one that flies around in a cool blue police box, but one that successfully defended his PhD dissertation entirely remote and online!

Just in case you are as confused as I am about all of the various Amazon Web Services

It is quite apparent that the internet needs to move away from #cloudflare
I ran an #tor exitnode for a few hours (mostly for testing combined with a miss in config) and now does cloudflare prompt me with a #captcha every, single, minute.

Do youself and your user a favour, and move away from cloudflare


This becomes doubly important with the β€œalways positive” camp. It’s not only impossible to do so without removing levels of empathy, it’s something only those who are able to isolate themselves from reality are capable of doing. Things will be bad. Things will hurt. ( Jammer dat hier een rechter zijn tijd aan heeft moeten verspillen, maar tegelijk mooi dat de uitspraak er is.

Nu is het wachten op het weerwoord van de 5G-vrezers, want dat komt ongetwijfeld...

Today we published an Open Letter on cooperation two years after #GDPR, with a special focus on how the @DPCIreland is dealing with our first complaints and how they engaged with #Facebook about bypassing the law..

So browsing with javascript enabled is plain dangerous for your security and privacy. Disabling javascript is very unpractical. Is anyone doing javascript security policies of some sort in webbrowsers to prevent this kind of thing? #javascript #security #ebay
RT @mcbazza
Yep. eBay "scans" your computer using browser websockets after you login, looking for specific ports.
I see ports typically used by RDP, VNC, remote access/control. 14…

πŸ‡³πŸ‡± Laat ik ook eens iets in mijn moedertaal tooten (toeteren?), ik ben vast niet de enige Nederlander (of vlaming πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺ, of surinamer πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡·, etc..) hier? Wellicht levert het nieuwe connecties op.


So, where should I put a fedi account for a very friendly, open-source-supporting company of mine? It seems like a lot of people around here don't want any companies on fedi to begin with, but do you really want us to continue only having a birdsite account for quick updates and such?

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

Is that an ESP32 on Your Wrist?

What could you do with a dual-core 240 MHz ESP32 that supports Arduino-style programming, with 16 MB of flash, 8 MB of PSRAM, and 520 k of RAM? Oh, let’s throw in a touchscreen, an accelerometer, Wifi, and Bluetooth. Besi…
