Hey, I have a blind friend who might want to join us on the Fediverse. Does anyone have a guide to accessibility etc that might be more useful than me just sending her a link to an instance?

Chris boosted

@fedilab is the main app already translated? You only linked to FediPlan.

@ButterflyOfFire @silkevicious it took me about an hour in Dutch with the suggestions available from Crowdin.

@ButterflyOfFire @fedilab @goofy I agree with you, but Fedilab didn't create this tool. So you'd probably want to complain at Crowdin πŸ™‚

As much as we should push for Free/Libre or Open Source software, if there’s one thing I hate more than anything its DRM. DRM makes it so you don’t even own the things that you purchase.. I say that’s bullshit.

support DRM-Free sources:

I added the language picker at the top.

This screenshot was taken exactly one year ago hihi
I was happy to be able to write a text on the online version, it was at early stage of the nextcloud version of carnet

@fedilab it also should probably be "ask *for* improvements" 😊

RT We salute the news of #knoppix abandoning #systemd to roll out its own init system. If in need, we'll be happy to help on anything we can

@lx @kev @mike and me mentioned something like that about an earlier version 😏

Chris boosted

hey @switchingsocial, maybe this question doesn't belong here... I have a VPS running tinc and nextcloud

any service recommendation of alternatives (like Linode, Dreamhost) not based in the U.S., with focus on privacy?

Chris boosted

There are a couple of free open Notes / ToDo apps you can follow on the Fediverse:



(This came up in another thread, thought it was worth repeating in a post.)

"Have you seen the news? We are in the worst timeline!"
"No, we are not. We are in one of the better ones."
"How can you say that?"
"Because we will bring the world back from the brink."
"How? How can you still have hope?"
"Otherwise this would be the worst timeline."
