Cleaning up my accounts, trying to make it homey after being away for so long.

Computer hardware has become more powerful, but it's not always obvious how we've used the extra compute.

It's obvious for monitors though. Newer monitors are consistently more pixels, requiring more work per redraw.

Hey Fediverse, especially the Venn overlap of librarians, retro computing enthusiasts and FOSS folks - at the libraries in Pittsburgh there are kiosks with vetted, locked-down, kid-safe edutainment programs from the late 90's and early 2000's. They're all branded with AWE Learning. There's a graphical frontend that lets the kid select and launch from a list of games.

Can I take an old laptop and turn it into something similar to those AWE Learning terminals, but with FOSS?

Boosts appreciated

Remember when dark dystopian cyberpunk worlds were fiction? That was nice.

at some point I am going to need a replacement for Google Voice. it breaks more & more on Lineage+microG.

I'd suck it up and try to "just" use a SIP provider or something (preferably an "or something" with 21st century features like encryption) but none that I know which are accessible to poor folk have anywhere near the spam filtering capability of Google Voice

that's the real reason I haven't divorced that head of the hydra yet.

Hi Fediverse 👋

to break the quietness of this account, here's a quick news flash:

- We added a list with Zoom alternatives 🤙

- We replaced some entries on "Bubbling under" 🔧

- We added Cryptpad to the Doodle list as it has a poll feature 🗒️

- Our DRM article has images now 🙃

- We have an Audible list in the pipeline 🎧

Thanks to @uniq for the nudge to write this! 😊👍

PSA - Dear new users at 

Imagine for a moment that your sight began to look blurry. You can't see things clearly and you need to go out to buy groceries or something.

You start walking and stumble into people. You get cursed at for not looking where you're going.

"Hey! Can't you see the sign? Can't you read? "

You stumble upon a crowd. "What's going on?"

"Can't you see?" you're asked rudely.

And nobody tells you what's actually going on.

They all expect you to see.

Well, that's what it feels like when reading Mastodon and there are no captions in your images.

Mastodon has an image captioning feature. If you can use it, please do for those of us who can't. 😎

'canadian dollars'? these alt-coins are getting out of hand

NoTube. The only website without any videos or any other kind of content

"understanding Bitcoin" 

I feel like people maybe give explanations that are too complex?

What I think people should know:

- it's a virtual currency that's completely unregulated
- it is highly fluctuating in value because people do speculation on it (like the real world stock market)
- the transactions are anonymized (sorta, there's no named associated to them but that's it)
- the combination of all the computers that generate them consume energy in gargantuan proportions and that's the main problem about it

Most other cryptocurrencies are like that too. I don't think it's needed to get into what blockchain and mining is to people
