#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.


Base system install works, but KDE just doesn't want to boot; in both VirtualBox and KVM 😖

I've gone through all prerequisites and installation of this page: wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/KDE

Now that cars have become rolling smartphones, it's been pretty disappointing to see them copy some of the worst practices from the smartphone world. I wrote an article that talks about some of those problems. [CW: Tesla negativity] puri.sm/posts/locked-in-a-remo

Colpipe breach 

@TheGibson
Wow...

It's not THAT weird though.

There are two scenarios.

Scenario 1: the billing system goes offline, you keep supplying oil, after a bit of legal back and forth with your customers you end up losing some income.

Scenario 2: you don't run the risk of missing income by shutting it all down.

Which would the shareholders prefer? And why would the effects of their choices on the rest of the country even factor into their decisions?

I seem to be picking up followers here *faster* now that I announced my intention to leave (going to social.hexdsl.co.uk/hexdsl ) which is odd to say the least.

I have just had the best week in a very long time. I went back to pre-pandemic work for the first time since 17th March last year.

It is was wonderful. Truly wonderful. I was working with my good friends, whom I've sorely missed, doing the job I love!

#WordOfTheDay

computeracy

Pronunciation /kəmˈpjuːt(ə)rəsi/
noun
Knowledge of or skill in using computers; the quality or state of being computerate.

Origin
1960s; earliest use found in The Times. Either from computer + -acy, after literacy, or a blend of computer and literacy.

==========

There is a sense that young people are computerate. It's like suggesting that eating food means you are a good cook, or driving a car means you are a mechanic. Temper your expectations.
