You 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘬 it's 𝒸𝓊𝓉ℯ to 𝘄𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲 your tweets and usernames 𝖙𝖍𝖎𝖘 𝖜𝖆𝖞. But have you 𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙙 to what it 𝘴𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘴 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 with assistive technologies like 𝓥𝓸𝓲𝓬𝓮𝓞𝓿𝓮𝓻?

So I went to the bar and ordered a white Russian. The bar tender forgot to add the Kalua and it came out very very white. Long story short, we just accidentally invented the Far Right Russian. That's not a good thing no matter the humour.

Hey, I'm looking for someone to take over one of my jobs, so I can concentrate better on @interpeer.

You should...

- be EU based, NL-based a preference.
- know C/C++/Python
- know basics of network programming: sockets, endianness, datagram vs. stream, etc.
- know Linux networking/routing a bit.

The software runs on small ARM boards (ca. Raspberry Pi 1 power). You'll build and flash images, etc. You'll attach extension boards, and interface the software to firmware.

DM me/boosts appreciated.

PostmarketOS is running on my PineNote! Needs a lot of work but hopefully I can contribute my part. I got a u-boot that will automatically boot it up so that's a start!

Productive evening, successfully glitched an Xbox 360 and made my demos disc complete with label. Just an ordinary geeky evening lol

Boost if you remember the times when GIFs were used for transparency instead of animation. #retro #RetroCompuing

Does any person on here know of anything that replicates the old "hard disk recorder" that in the late 80s through the 90s synced with a midi time signal and allowed you to track audio with midi? I'm kinda wanting to use the and to run an Atari with ancient Cubase and make a track in the old-school ways we used to. Boosts very much appreciated /cc @aldroid @kelbot @Openmastering

here's the SVG if anyone else wants it - you'll need Liberation Sans, and of course replace "YOURPHONEHERE" and "Researcher INITIAL"

chatcontrol, eupol 

#fediverse, we really need to talk about #chatcontrol, the EU's next mass surveillance system. Long Thread below, with hints to skip over parts of if it's too long for you. Sources are in [brackets] & linked at the end. I tried to simplify a bit to keep the thread accessible for people without deep technical knowledge. I've packed a LOT of content into this thread - if you have trouble undestanding, it's probably my fault. Ask and I'll clarify! Please boost for awareness.

web browser poll, curiosity 

So, what #web #browser do you use? #Firefox, #Safari, #Chrome, or #Vivaldi? If you are using something else please reply - there's only 4 slots for polls, so I had to limit the choices. Please #boost to get a better response on this poll.

Web3 is a joke, part 44900


Uhh… a massive DAO just voted to “refund” one of their investors who was owed a 30x return ($5M+)

This is an insane story that impacts all builders in web3 and as a founder I need to speak out

Merit Circle DAO vs YGG 🧵

An upside-down sign, right?

Which looks more like the letter U to you?

Yeah, I get it.

My mind is twisted.

It cannot be helped.

Removing Kindle DRM + 

If you have access to a Windows or Mac comp, there is a fairly easy way to strip Kindle books of DRM

The trick is to erase all the kindle content on your computer, go to Internet Achive and download Kindle for Windows 1.17 (or equivalent for Mac), and redownload your books

That way you get your book files in AZW format

Install DeDRM from github, and the Kindle conversion input plugin from the default Calibre plugins list, and then import books to Calibre and convert

promised you a new one in better lighting conditions :)
