This morning the Mrs and myself did a sponsor walk of 13 km (8 miles for Imperialists 😖), to raise funds for research against cancer! Even thou we've already finished you can still send in money, if you want and are able to!

#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!

Since I took this picture three years ago, I'm more and more convinced that I'll never take a better one.

looking for guests for my podcast 

Hi, trash cat (they/them) here. I do this cool podcast called trash cat tech chat. I'm looking for guests who want to have a 30-60 minute chat with me about something related to privacy.

Here are some ideas for topics I think would be worth discussing:

private messaging
account security
free software/open source (applications and operating systems)
social media (privacy on the Fediverse, privacy on mainstream social media)
more private alternatives to software/services (getting away from Google, etc.)
using privacy-invasive things more safely
phones and privacy (that's a whole can of worms)
privacy and (in)convenience (when is it convenient? when is it inconvenient? what can we do to make it easier?)
privacy news/current events

If you'd like to talk about any of those or something else related to privacy, please send me a message! (You must pass a vibe check. It helps if you're queer, etc.)

The first generation in history to grow up in an environment of constant surveillance is alive today.

Protecting privacy is the greatest civil fight of our lifetime.

Followup from an earlier toot: should I do a video about how /usr does NOT stand for "UNIX System Resources"?

Howdy fediverse,

I'm Kenneth, a nerd with too short of an attention span to limit myself to one engineering field, so I keep myself entertained with #electronics #hamradio #Ethernet #embedded #devops #linux and the #maker scene.

Let's make this thing awesome.

Today, I dragged @StuartBeveridge to Chorley to see a fantastic bridge.

Because the railway and canal are at such a sharp angle, a normal arch wouldn't stay up. Instead, the stones are hand-carved in curves so that the joins between them are perpendicular to the bridge's weight.

There was a very inspiring TED Talk done by a guy who almost became a school shooter.
I think his message sums certain current events up perfectly.
"We have to give love to those who we think deserve it the least"
(wow, he has the same first name as me, I swear this is a coincidence)

O365 question from a Linux lady 

Anybody know if it's possible to make O365 quarantine an email if the sender and recipient are the same person?

I have a customer running Exchange on O365 and they're trying to block BCC spam. I took a look at it and don't see anything obvious in "Rules".

Admittedly I'm not an Exchange expert.
