#LibreSheets (3/3) 

LibreSheets will have at least :
*Sheets management (all songs, grouped per ensemble and set lists)
*Non-destructive PDF editing¹ and annotation² (1]cropping, merging/splitting and fine-grained rotation. 2]stamps, highlight)
*Support for PDF and midi-files (and hopefully more, like multiple image files)
*Auto-scrolling, Bluetooth pedal control and link-to (for D.C./D.S. and Coda jumps etc)

Suggestions and contributions are very welcome and I will create a Git project ASAP!

"Fennec F-Droid, which is F-Droid’s unbranded Firefox build, updated to v60, finally bringing all Firefox quantum improvements to android.

By the way, several people told us they find the icon ugly. Think you can do better? Here’s your chance! Send us a new design, and we might make it the official new Fennec F-Droid icon!" according to the latest TWiF @fdroidorg

@kev
Weird that you couldn't downgrade, but at least the workaround worked.

Some readers get confused by protocols used on the internet, like HTTP, HTTPS, and TLS. So, what is the meaning of these abbreviations?

I got the call! Definitely helped putting the thought out there in the fediverse. Could it be coincidence?

Nah. Surely the fediverse has mysterious energies at work.

Aw fuck. Seem to have had a power-cut during the night and now one of my monitors refuses to go above 1440x990 pixels.

Whichever computer I plug into it.

Bah. No idea how to fix this now.

Why on earth would a power-cut cause a monitor to mis-report it's available resolutions? It won't even turned on during the power outage ffs.

😞

How about a gofundme to pay for an ad campaign to advertise ublock origin.

Whenever I see someone working really hard to make something exactly right, I always assume they're much younger than me. Because that was something I did when I was young, that I grew out of. It's just not worthwhile to perfect your dotfiles, you know?

Had a coworker mistakenly delete a cloudformation stack that was still needed. Luckily it was in our dev account but still needed. Luckily we had snapshots of the OS and app volumes and I was able to rebuild fairly quickly.

Also made me notice we weren't getting snapshots of the uat instances and was able to remedy that.

Friendly reminder to check your backups, and even better, check your ability to restore. 😝

Looks like the Windows XP source code got leaked. I can't wait to see what kind of horrible code that would never be tolerated in Open Source is lurking in the depths of that abyss.

For the life of me I can't get my 4B booting directly from USB even after updating firmware. None of my websearch-foo is helping me today. I gave up and just changed my root partition to the USB drive.

**Eerste proef met snelteststraat van start: corona-uitslag binnen een kwartier**

"In Utrecht is het afnemen van corona-sneltesten in een teststraat van start gegaan. Het gaat om een proef van het UMC, in de hoop erachter te komen hoe betrouwbaar de testen zijn. Als uit de onderzoeken blijkt dat de sneltesten goed genoeg zijn, hoopt het kabinet dat ze vanaf november op grote schaal kunnen worden ingezet…"

re: Job opportunity 

Let me be clear.

I WANT to hire someone from the fediverse for this.

It has no benefits, but gets your foot into infosec, and a solid paycheck for a while.

"Wait," he said, "you read fantasy? On your profile it said you read science fiction."
"I like to read both."
"That makes no sense, you either read one or the other."
She gave him a look.
"Are you serious? Genre matters much less than the quality of the story."

We need more distros with ARM architecture support, especially ones without systemd

I just came across this 2004 Steve Yeggee post. sites.google.com/site/steveyeg

He's mostly talking about how great C is, but he makes a comment in passing that is pretty alarming from a 2020 perspective:

> The biggest thing you can reasonably write in C is an operating system, and they're not very big, not really. They look big because of all their apps, but kernels are small.… [O]perating system kernels are at most, what, maybe a million lines of code?

The Linux kernel is now 27.8 million lines

anyone know if ranger or nnn or something similar has a way to look in the subdirs of the working directory and show the files from all of them together + filtered?
for example, if you had directories for dogs, cats, and snakes within your animals directory, and you had saved some of each today, and you wanted to display all of the pictures from the last 24 hours on one screen so you could do something like mark some for copying (or another action).

I've never quite seen this in a file manager, but I think it's probably possible. I'm picturing a bit like how the filters work in the `stig` frontend for transmission.

(also, I know you can probably use the find command and then pipe to fzy or something and do an action afterward, but I specifically wanted this in a file manager)
