Classic open source game being rewritten in a modern open source engine:
Pattle is a new IM-like client for Matrix

Ronin: a crossover between Vim and Photoshop
Of course it wasn't announced, but a free @Dropbox@twitter.com account can now only sync between three devices. No surprise that a company still losing money has to increase pressure a bit, but not fun for the users.
#selfhost to avoid such unpleasant surprises!
“Thanos JS reduces the file size of your project down to 50%, by randomly deleting half of the files.”
Maybe you have suggestions for alternatives...
1) we are all in different countries so this is challenging (skype is doing OKish, but at least we can see/hear each other)
2) simplicity... not all of them are tech savvy (for example #jami might feel weird)
4) group video call encryption would also be a plus (afaik #riotim does not provide this)
A bunch of friends and I have a video call (skype) all together every few months. This time I suggested to add some #libre flavour to the call. #wire seemed a good middle ground: good/simple interface (close enough to skype), E2E encryption, available on all major platforms.
Sadly we found out there is no support for group video calls with >4 people (not even the pro version). Not well advertised on the website imo.
Back on skype, until next call :(
