Idea: voice chat clinic where you can jump on with whatever setup you have and get recommendations as to what's wrong (bandwidth, mic position, distortion etc)

I got a new weekend mapping theme: #wetlands !

I used to map lots of waterways, and with earphones on, end-up in a zen-like mapping trance for hours.

Mapping #mangroves and #reefs now gets me on that kind of groove.

The #Philippines is archipelagic, so we have almost endless coastlines 😄 , but the challenge goal is to fix mangroves named "mangroves", and then, maybe, map the vicinity, too.

ME: are you experiencing the world, Boat

ME: Boaty are you confronting a newfound awareness of the finite self as distinct from an indifferent universe

i'm looking for a job.

i'm a mathematics student at galatasaray university in turkey. i've discovered latex typesetting system ~4 years ago. in that time period, i've written my lecture notes, real-time. i've learned about plotting and drawing with tkz-euclid and tikz.

if you are in need of someone to type a thesis, an homework; to draw and produce graphics, plots, etc. please contact me, i'm open to communication and i'll inform if i'm able to get the job done.

I discovered this a while ago, and I have yet to be contacted by vendors about this. I am making public CVE-2022-23835: A security analysis of Visual Voicemail

Detailed analysis: gitlab.com/kop316/vvm-disclosu

Thank you to CERT/CC for your help in trying to contact the vendors, in CERT/CC, it is filed under VU#383864.

There was a huge shivering line waiting outside for covid tests at #ethdenver so I bought $6 stepladder and street preached at them about their sinful use of centralized services like github

"If you want to write fast software, use a slow computer" - Dominic Tarr

I have always loved this quote and lived by its message long before I found it so succinctly put. Thanks again, Dominic.

a good thing to do when someone mentions they went to Harvard is to screw up your face for a few seconds and then say "oh, is that the one with the yard"

you can also do this if someone is from Scotland

I made a version of Wordle without the letter E, for the oulipo.social crowd: limpet.net/ourdl/

(It's a fork of chordbug's "hello wordl" repo.)

I should use mastodon more. I think my problem is I don't know where to find content. What are some good feeds to follow if I like #forth #retrocomputing or #programming ?

Inspired by @mz I've finally managed to flash #mobilenixos to the #pinephone which I didn't use since autumn. Well, it works, although not exactly usable as a phone, at least in the example Xfce configuration. Actually I was surprised that Xfce is *theoretically* usable on the mobiles - it has an on-screen keyboard, a touchscreen mode for mouse and can position windows fullscreen by default.

Enjoy frustration?

Someone made a clone of Wordle that doesn't pick a hidden word, it just strings you along until you've eliminated all but one possible answers.
