@jalcine hm, that might actually be a good idea.

I hadn't heard of Rescue time before, that's basically a planning/scheduling app, right? And the alerts are reminders of things you had planned?

@TheFake_VIP no, it's not because of your sight condition, I don't get it either. It's built to get the users addicted, and in that it succeeds admirably.


@markosaric Well, that sounds wonderfully GDPR compliant, not to mention globally legal! ;)

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.

@loke @TheFake_VIP the problem is that you can't guarantee cross client rendering, I think.

@jan aan de andere kant: ik ga er altijd wel een beetje van uit dat mijn upload geschaald wordt naar zinvolle afmetingen. Niet in de uiteindelijke browser of app, maar direct na de upload.

En ja, eens dat het basismateriaal daarvoor geen 8K hoeft te zijn.

@Odd_Bloke I wasn't even going to bother responding to this, but eh.

I invite you to leave my ass out of this, I trust Jacky to be able to express any problems he might have with my comment. I didn't mean to protect anyone, but give, I dunno, a message of hope, I guess? "Things may seem quite fucked, but they're not as fucked globally, which is a good thing", was the idea.

@jalcine if you have any issue with my comment, lemme know, but know it's meant well.

@nextcloud I'd much rather follow you on Pixelfed or one of the other open platforms. πŸ˜‰

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 :-)

@jalcine seems to be that way in the US, yes. I can assure you it's not like that everywhere.
