Oh, but if I use a device which was upgraded from an old version of kde connect it'll work! And since f-droid archives old APKs you can bypass the WiFi check by first installing 1.12.x then updating the app. Neat.

I am looking for LGBTQIA+ people doing reverse-engineering to interview for a podcast series.

− From any fields, any discipline, not only computer hardware / software
− hardware and software practices are welcome
− I like quiet, calm, smooth atmospheres for those kind of interview
− I'm not looking for rockstar
− no TERF
− It is within the framework of a program of exploration and non-academic research (NGO)
− It's audio-recording
− It's remote synchronous recording (mostly using bigBlueButtom)
− we submit the draft to you before distribution/publication of the episode
− this is not a paid interview
− It's for public podcast series with content under free open source license

if I missed something you want to know: please DM me.

5.5.0 will have dynamic soft shadows, with colors! Thanks to 0xLiso for contributing this
