One of my closest friends, @email@example.com recently started a YouTube channel on which he does detailed reviews of software instruments with NKS compatibility with an emphasis on orchestral/trailer scoring. Watch and spread if this appeals to you. First video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTeo5361DpI
in an effort to justify why i talk about latex support in riot/matrix so much, i wrote a post https://thosgood.com/blog/2019/10/09/matrix-riot-what-is-it.html . in an effort to make the wall of text interesting to read, i did it directly after taking a sleeping pill, so i fear it gets less and less cohesive...
Excellent in-depth analysis from @firstname.lastname@example.org on why they invested in @NewVectorHQ@twitter.com to support @email@example.com dev. If you have any trepidation about the impact of VC funding on the Matrix ecosystem, read this now: https://medium.com/dawn-capital/communications-of-the-future-will-be-open-and-secure-why-we-invested-in-new-vector-2bd8a060faf7
WebAIM conducted their 8th screen reader survey. The results are now in. Chrome‘s usage triples, and it‘s now the most used browser. NVDA overtakes JAWS as most used desktop screen reader. Safari+VoiceOver remain strongest mobile screen reader combination by a big margin.
Headings are by far still the most important means of navigating a website, landmark use continues to decline. PDF is now considered the technology posing most accessibility issues. #a11y #WebDev
To our #Android #FOSS developers: Anyone who could provide a simple app to decode TNEF – so those "winmail.dat" attachments created by pesky stupid MS Outlook/Exchange could be opened from within e.g. K9 Mail, decode to the PDF (or whatever the attachment really should be), and then offer to open with the appropriate app or save to "disk"?
So far I've only found a single app on Play (low rated and full of trackers). I'd prefer one on @fdroidorg and without trackers. Anyone, please?
Else please boost 😉
Despite a persistent legend, the Chromium web browser is strongly tight with many Google services, and thus is *NOT* ungoogled.
In /e/OS we are using a fully ungoogled Chromium web browser.
On Linux, Mac and Windows, you can use "ungoogled- chromium":
Yay! @grote has been working on a free software alternative for backups on Android \o/
Since Mozilla may or may not switch over to Matrix for real-time communication in the future, I've started implementing a JS bot for Matrix: https://github.com/bnjbvr/botzilla
Come help! Now it can quote @firstname.lastname@example.org (most important), also retrieve tree status and expand bug numbers.
The more I use @email@example.com, the more I like it. Bridging to IRC to keep in contact with @CHAOSSproj@twitter.com and considering it for future #opensource projects. Perhaps it's time to support it somehow https://matrix.org/faq#how-is-matrix.org-funded%3F

Looking for an #Android Dev who could help establishing a "foss build flavor" removing Crashlytics from an app at https://github.com/yevhenii-kanivets/Money-Tracker/issues/181 - anyone out there to help? If it's not you, please boost. Thanks!
I just had an instance of himawari coming in extremely useful, so i might as well plug @firstname.lastname@example.org awesome little creation. If you want to quickly hop into a voice chat with 1 or more people on any device with a web browser, http://himawari.ml is the place to do that.
