Recommended block, Funkwhale.it
It came to our attention recently that the account @\firstname.lastname@example.org was spreading misinformation about the project, and our funding in particular. They've also published hostile posts concerning some members of our collective.
This happens after we reached out to them multiple times in february to ask them to respect the guidelines we put in place for reusing our assets (https://funkwhale.audio/en_US/logos), and after they setup multiple social media pages by simply copy-pasting content from our website, which could be seen as a way to impersonate us, or at least to create confusion.
As a result, we have decided to block them, as well as the Funkwhale pod funkwhale.it they manage, from all our spaces and the pods we host.
Funkwhale.it is not affiliated with our project or collective, in any way.
I spent about 2 hours looking for a JS-free way to fit some text into an element of given size...
As ever, I ended up reading something on CSS-tricks: https://css-tricks.com/fitting-text-to-a-container/
Sadly don't think there is a way :(
Now using textFit.js which seems to be the most minimal (JS) way of achieving desired result https://github.com/STRML/textFit :)
I set up a streaming radio thing!
I put a subset of my music on a server, and set it up to stream a playlist. Right now some chilled music I like to code to. May drastically change at other times.
You can listen to it at https://stream.abovethebeat.com/ (browsers seem to know how to handle it, or use a media play that handles streams, e.g. vlc).
I don't know how many people it can support listening.. too many people and it might crash my little server.
We got given a big bag o' wheat by some friends of ours, grown originally by an organic collective near Berlin.
On boiling a bunch of it, we saw some grain which looked worryingly like Ergot.
On closer inspection, I reckon it's Wild Buckwheat http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/WEEDS/wild_buckwheat.html because they're triangular.
Picture: wheat on right, oat (?) in middle and wild buckwhear (?) on left.
ID guesses/tips welcome.
Debian @ COVID-19 Biohackathon will start next Sunday 5 April 2020, which for a week invites you to improve biomedical free software and the tools / libraries that support it. https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2020/03/msg00010.html
Just gave a presentation to my housemates about the weirdness and wonderfulness of #svg
Slides here https://codi.kanthaus.online/p/svgSharing#/ (although 2/3 of the thing was interactive demos 😦 )
I *hope* to write a standalone article about it... someday.
In any case, SVGs are cool and if things go weird, look into viewport, viewBox and preserveAspectRatio
food, homemade pesto (vegan)
I made my first sunflower seed + wild garlic pesto (vegan), yesterday.
very cheap too. abundant wild garlic growing now, sunflower seeds are cheap, then a bit of the cheapest olive oil in the shop. it should have some lemon in it too, but we didn't have any, but some lemon-y salad dressing from the other day worked ok.
and we have no mixer, but the coffee grinder worked.
was super yummy. on bread (with sprouted seeds) or with pasta.
covid, medical supplies, hackerspaces (++)
Warsaw Hackerspace ramped up production of face shields to 5000+/day:
If you know medical facilities in Poland who need face shields, send them here:
My hat is off to fellow hackers from Warsaw.
"The reaction to the communes of #Paris and #Lyon were triumphalist monuments, the Sacré-Cœur of Montmartre and the basilica of Fourvière, dominating both cities. These buildings were erected using private funds, as gigantic ex-votos, thanking God for the victory over the socialists and in expiation of the sins of modern France." —Bertrand Taithe, Citizenship and Wars: France in Turmoil, 1870–1871
This is global: we are sharing this experience.
Most of us are going to make it; we will mourn those that don't.
Our deliverance will be thanks to normal people working hard for purpose, not profit.
We've seen money 'magically' appearing.
We've seen pollution 'magically' disappearing.
When this ends, and we can move freely again, we will reject the return to normal.
Use this time wisely my friends.
