#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

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

It's the end of 2020? Time for the obligatory Awards Eligibility post? Here you go:

No. No no no. NO. Nope.

Don't nominate me. It won't help me (mwl.io/faq#books).

Nominate other people.

Why won't awards help me?

Anything I write, I can publish.

I have enough readers that I can afford to do daft things, like the #Networknomicon or #edMastery.

I can execute visions without compromise, and the bills are paid.

What more could I want? :flan_book::flan_trophy:

A fun idea from the elementary Community Slack playing off the XKCD `correct horse battery staple` comic: an interest-based password generator. Have a big database of words including interests like Star Wars, plants, coffee, etc. and let the user choose relevant ones.

Does anyone have any experience preparing tofu to be used in a filling? Thinking about using it as a substitute for ground meat in my meat tortellini recipe.

i don't think i'll ever stop kicking myself for not downloading the other two tracks that were ever available of Chip Kidd's band artbreak. i grabbed three of them off myspace years ago, but the last two up there were taken down before i got a chance.

such good stuff and the album never came out either. 😭

Should I try to script the part after *DO NOT REBOOT* section? It seems to be all mounted at the same location in the tutorials I've come across 🧐

I can't stand people who mistake friendliness for a weakness.

Sometimes you have to be a complete asshole just to be taken seriously - and I hate being one.

I might be able to find a used one on eBay when that day comes, but if not, then I'll need to settle for an ambidextrous mouse, which is obviously nowhere near the same.

Sure, you can have the OS swap the buttons to simulate a left-handed mouse, but when you're connecting to a VM or a remote machine, then the buttons again go back to normal.

Frustrating. There must be so many left-handed folk out there in the same positon... Or they just deal with the above problem and get on with it...

The best reason for putting a description with media you post is for accessibility reasons such as a people with vision issues using screen reading software.

The less important but selfish reason I'm mentioning this is because it makes it a lot nicer when using a command line fediverse client to be able to know what the media is about and whether its worth opening in a browser to view.
