"No, I’m sorry, Thunderbird’s calendar isn’t a good calendar. It’s dialog boxes from 1998 coming up with that “donk!” sound, not being dismissable immediately, and also coming up twice for no reason, or telling you that you modified the event when you didn’t"

Just wanted to share what I did recently!

I created a little JS tool that is pinging a YT or PT API in order to get the follower counter and display the number on a html page customizable through CSS.
I did it because Peertube lacks an instrument like that which allows you to show the followers number on the OBS scene. With this tool you can just add the html page to OBS.
https://codeberg.org/franzbonanza/obsFollowerCounter

Code is FOSS! I hope PT adds my tool to the docs :)

As both a fan, and a fan, I was inspired by the print linked below to create my own sign to show my support for the Crew on my desk at my office at work.

https://www.printables.com/model/155492-cleveland-guardians-logo

So, I fired up to make the SVG, and then to create the 3d model that I then 3D printed. I printed the yellow part separate and glued it in.

So glad to have such great tools to make ideas reality. Can’t forget and .

I am incredibly curious as to how the HDMI-in works on the ROC-RK3588 SoC. Specifically the latency of it, how many ms/frames behind the input it is.

Specifically this chip/board https://wiki.t-firefly.com/en/ROC-RK3588-PC/usage_hdmiin.html which is also the same SoC as in this set https://www.friendlyelec.com/index.php?route=product%2Fproduct&product_id=294

Any folk on here have one and tested that aspect? (Boosts appreciated)

Some enterprises, in the wake of , are focusing on their metrics for dependencies they ingest..... rather than investing money, developer time, or other resources* to directly support maintainers.

But as I mentioned to a friend recently:

If downstreams do not provide at least as much support as a motivated attacker would, we're likely to continue to get these kinds of outcomes - & to be deceived, as attackers shape their efforts to trick the metrics.

@brainwane I've done a fair bit of work in my time, in various areas but mostly dev work.

While I still work on open source, I've scaled down my work and narrowed it quite a bit.... despite still believing that all code should be .

Here's some / experiences from my time as a FOSS dev:

  • at most 1 percent of users contribute back, even less so in monetary ways
  • Apart from time and (to live), equipment was my big blocker (10+ years old hardware)

I was thinking specifically of the Utils incident when I wrote this weeks column calling for an tax credit for developers.

“A 2024 Harvard study valued [open source software] at $8.8 trillion.

A software project may be initially undertaken by a single developer as a hobbyist project, but … maintenance and security updates require long-term commitments, often by an entire community of developers.”

The beauty of free and open source software () licenses is the possibilities that it opens up for better futures to abandoned or spoiled software. Three recent examples involving the late Simple Mobile Tools, Geometric Weather and OpenBoard apps.

I would like to develop a very simple UI, with:

  • full screen mode activated by default
  • a blurred picture as a background
  • some text on the right of the screen

Thanks in advance, Fediverse! :)

Here is a fun thing you can try.

Kind of amazing.

Running a Mastodon instance like Newsie and Journa involves increasing hosting and maintenance costs.

We do that without selling ads or your data.

But we NEED your help:

Via Open Collective: https://opencollective.com/newsiesocial#category-CONTRIBUTE

Your support helps keep the lights on,

@raphael

You and I believe the same thing...

Operational costs of running a larger mastodon instance are simply too high and "beg-ware" is a failed approach.

However I am not interested in anything that isn't #FOSS

As I've previously stated I've contemplated building the sponsorship module, but not entirely sure that it's the right project for the moment as MAU in Mastodon is declining.

We'll see.
