I'd much rather you set up a blog category with an RSS feed and I control my subscription to your updates, than you set up an email newsletter, ask for my email, and you control my subscription.

#Retrocomputing heads, I’m trying to find a copy of a 1980s DOS productivity app called Open Access. Anyone have a copy or disk images lying around?

Have you heard about Ada Lovelace Day? It's an international day of celebration of women in STEM, held on 9 October. There is a live show in London, tickets available from here findingada.com/events/ada-love and independent events all over the world findingada.com/worldwide-event

This year is our tenth, and we'd love to make it the biggest one yet. Come along to our live show, attend an event, organise one of your own or write a blog, and help us celebrate all the amazing women in STEM, past and present!

♲ @:flamingo: Micah (minego@birb.site): Have you ever started a toot on your phone, but then wanted to finish writing it on your computer? I do this frequently when posting a picture that I've taken on my phone, but I want a real keyboard to type the description.

Anybody know somebody who designs #ttrpg character sheets? (Not just for #DnD.) Looking to hire someone to design the sheet for a new RPG.

Boosts appreciated. Thanks!

♲ @David Bravo (dbravo@twitter.com): ATENCIÓN. PP, PSOE y Ciudadanos han presentado una enmienda conjunta para poder cerrar webs sin ningún tipo de control judicial, ni siquiera el pequeño control que todavía había en la Ley Sinde. Se publicó ayer en el BOE. Lo explico en este hilo.

I've started a list of #fediverse client software, including both web apps (eg Pinafore), and native apps (eg WhaleBird), to inform further development of fediverse.party . Please let me know of any actively maintained client apps I can do the list:

No link, because I can’t find it right now, but I did see that #NC / #SC have some pig farm poop lagoons whose contents have escaped into the local environment. If you’re in that part of the country, consult your local government and news sources for info and what you need to do.

Looking for places to buy DRM-free e-books on this International Day Against DRM?

Here's 100+ bookshops that sell fantastic books without DRM.



@lohang I'm wary of any community centralizing on one instance. For the benefit of that community, they should disperse widely across the #fediverse. Any particular instance is vulnerable to pressure, censorship, financial conditions, admin burnout.
