« Taking #FOSDEM online via #Matrix »
Currently wondering why next to the (usual and anticipated) #FOSDEM #LibreOffice devroom, there is one for Apache OpenOffice. Curious about that, will they make a comeback after all?

Aaaand in today's episode of #questionthealgorithm a shop that cancelled my order áfter taking my money. Because why question the algorithm of the payment platform? Didn't even try to talk to me or wonder about the fact that I'd ordered from them before...
