I wrote an 8086 assembler in FORTH
possibly useful for future projects
likely just a waste of time and dwindling remains of intellect

Approximately a month or two months ago many people started having issues with -ng on android. While using other than english voice it was constantly switching it-self back into english. I could not reproduce it because I'm running as google free phone as possible with @microg instead of Google play services. If you are experiencing the same thing just update Google Speech Services app. play.google.com/store/apps/det thanks to hint discovered by Milan Rezen.

Do I have any English-speaking followers who use a screen reader and would be willing to answer some accessibility questions about “special” characters?

1.) nmcli d wifi hotspot
2.) nmcli d wifi show
3.) tap the QR-code icon next to "Add network" in Android

Progress on PGPainless Development

Not much time has passed since I last wrote about my progress on the PGPainless library. However, I feel like its time for an update.

Ha! Just realised it's been over a decade since I switched to #ArchLinux full time. At the time it was a rather smallish, up and coming distro, often accused by detractors of being 'unstable'.

Nowdays, it ships pre-installed on gaming consoles made by AAA game publishers. And yes, it's stable. In fact I have a 5 year old Arch install still going strong.

Huge thanks to everyone who made Arch what it is today. 🍷

IPv4 addresses used to be gratis. Today they're selling for ~40 USD each. Ford (!!) got 16.7 million IPs for free, hardly using them. Today they're worth $670M, a better value increase than any crypto currency. At the same time new ISPs can't be started because lack of IPs.

"It means every instance of Kaspersky Password Manager in the world will generate the exact same password at a given second. This would be obvious to spot if every click on the “Generate” button, in the password generator interface, produced the same password. However, for some reason, password generation is animated: dozens of random chars are displayed while the real password has already been computed. This animation takes more than 1 second, so it is not possible to click several times on the “Generate” button within a second. That is definitely why the weakness had not been discovered before."

I've started a new project...command-line email. Right now, like most people, I typically use full-screen interactive email clients (shout out to @sir and #aerc).

However, at the end of this semester, I had dozens and dozens of emails pouring in each day, and I found my traditional email workflow undesirable. I developed a system of dealing with my emails in batches: one pass to filter/organize by deadline, another pass for emails due today, another pass for emails due within 3 days, etc.

It worked tremendously well. I didn't lose track of anything. I wasn't stressed. It was nice and efficient.

But it would have worked even better with a batch-oriented email client, which is what I'm developing now. Unfortunately I won't be able to grab about using any sexy technologies, just boring old Python3 imaplib. Still, I'm excited.

I've put together some details for folk interested in working with #Android Firmware (#AOSP, Lineage, etc.) about what the development cycle looks like. Let me know if you find it useful or think there should be changes made.

The WebAIM #ScreenReader survey results are out! For anyone who'd find the information interesting -- either because they use one themselves, want to know which ones to test with when determining website/software #accessibility, or just because they're bored -- they can review it here:

I have no idea how or why JAWS is so popular this year ... :eyeless_frown: Like come on! NVDA is *free*
and does pretty much everything better!

Any recommendations for open, cross-platform, accessible podcatchers? In this context, "open" means at minimum OPML import/export in case the platform ever becomes evil, or preferably open source? Windows/web and Android at minimum. Everything I'm finding is either single-platform or closed.
