Anyone know a good way of sharing cool projects I find? Like I do kinda on here but I want a place where they could be all together so someone could look at them. Some sort of blog-type thing seems to be best.
tldr: looking for a place I can show off projects I found and talk about them.
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
According to the-federation.info the #fediverse has crossed 3 million registered users (and this is excluding Gab)
Great post by @sir
btw, I like using "Open Source"
Although... I'm not sure the goal is to stop migration after account has been compromised.
maybe it makes more sense to require 2FA, period.
But no one ever listens to that advice... although I think the web is moving more toward a methodology like this in general.
There would be gnashing of teeth, but it IS the right way to void this problem in the first place.
Free software, post-RMS
In the meanwhile, we have some difficult work in front of us; while again I think RMS stepping down was completely correct, we can at least say that RMS was stubbornly principled. Right now if you look at the OSI license lists, I think you can see a lot of people trying to chip away at the principles of FOSS, maybe even unintentionally.
We need to re-examine and clearly be able to articulate the reasons we are taking these positions ourselves.
Season 4 of "Emulate This" coming soon!
Toot! v1.9.4 is out:
I've been banging my head against the wall trying to get things to work right on iOS 13, and this release has all those fixes, and a few more. I sincerely hope it has ENOUGH fixes for iOS 13, but I expect to be disappointed. So if you find issues, go ahead and disappoint me on the bug tracker!
(Doing a phased update for this one, just because I am nervous.)
We added a wiki page with an example workflow (not yet prominently linked, .. will do as soon the wiki contains sufficient volume so that we can build some structure with TOC). Please let us know if this works for you, and what we can improve!
Wish someone made an open source database for games.
Also, #Picard now has a build-in music player
#Flycast is now merged into only one thing, no more Flycast WinCE!
Makerdon is a Mastodon instance focused on Makers, Open Source Hardware (OSHW) and STEM/STEAM. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is a likely topic as well. If you're interested in making things, allowing others to build on your work, and/or teaching others about making things, you might like this instance.
