Re- due to some incapacitating decisiveness about how to use different accounts:

I work in IT, study Philosophy (history of) and Japanese, and I help admin camp.smolnet.org, a tiny (and sort of Swedish) Mastodon instance for the smol internet. I like cats, birds, snacks, books, yarn, and general nerdy stuff. I like Linux and hate computers. よろしくお願いします!

My notes and excerpts are very useful and detailed as you can see

Open call for obsolete sounds! This project is really fascinating. They're requesting recordings of sounds from our environment, old tech, etc. that are no longer commonplace and then those will be reimagined by sound artists "to draw attention to the world’s disappearing soundscapes." citiesandmemory.com/2022/05/op

Do I know any one with experience with alpine/pmos or arch/manjaro packaging, and has some free time to spare a couple of free software projects? I want to package some mobile python apps for and but I rather not learn yet another packaging format beside deb/rpm/setuptools which I am allready managing 😅.

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('fonts.googleapis.com/css?famil[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');

#Google does not fund research groups if they'd work on software licensed under #AGPL.

Use the AGPL to incentivize people not to get funded by Google.
