People who use screenreaders, is there anything I can do to make pasted output from Massif (or other noisy, numbers-heavy log data) less of a pain in the ass in my blog posts? I try to annotate them as in but I don't think I'm doing it well for screenreaders.

Hi in a time of physical distancing, emotional proximity and communication are more important than ever

Tell your friends you love them today :)

my dev has decided i should have a logo for my software! isn't that exciting? it makes me feel like an official kitn :blobcat3c:

so together with my dev i am putting out a call for logo designs for me! :netkitty:

i can use all the logos because i am very impawtant.

pls remember that the earliest appearance of my software was in 1989! my logo should look like it's from around then too.

if you are an artist that takes commissions and you have an idea my dev is happy to commission you and pay you a money. just reach out!

@zacchiro @david That seems understandable. I retract my suggestion and make a new one: set up a poll, open for days, with the three alternatives you mentioned, plus a fourth "other (suggest as a comment)" one.

Keep it open until Monday.

@zacchiro @david I'm not sure the actual instance really matters, but it strikes me that SWH wanted its own instance, it could support by becoming a subscriber.

we are interested in your opinions/preferences on standalone keyboards as input for the design of the MNT Reform Standalone Keyboard. if you have 5 minutes to spare and don't mind Google Forms:

if you'd rather not fill out a Google Form, you can also give some answers here and we'll try to incorporate them.

@zhenech I have. This is my spouse's data, mostly video footage they've taken for their work.

Running backups to a new server. 47 gigabytes done, about 6600 to go.

@mrkz I try to always have my package build run "make check" or whatever the equivalent for the software is.

Sometimes I give up if it's too hard to do.

If you have a nice tool that you think others would benefit from, do everyone a favour and have a simple example prominently in the docs and the home page.

Mastodon always 'charges' you 23 characters for every URL you post. It doesn't matter if it is longer or shorter.
There is NO excuse for using URL shorteners which obfuscate your destination if you click - these usually go to fb or twitter, so I Never click them on purpose. They make my browser and I feel dirty.
Please tell your friends.

@bremner I bought a pair of HyperX Cloud II headphones in December. Use them daily with Linux. Comfortable on my head, and I find the audio quality to be good. I've not had complaints from people in meetings, either.
