just completed my first full watch-through of ds9 🥲 i'm so happy for all my friends in space 🥲

I love free software, and I love encryption tools 🥲

This feels very silly to ask but I have a crossword-y Python coding problem that I can't crack and it seems very much like an interview question or an Advent of Code challenge. Does anybody find that kind of thing fun and want to talk it through with me?

I love songs about how cool it feels to be a musician

@enkiv2 I'm interested in the options on both prongs there. For, like, e-waste reasons I'm resistant to buy new hardware while the old thing works, but that's one factor and the free software friendliness is another!

My current set-up uses a basically ancient Kindle that still works just fine. But of course I'd love to excise Amazon from the equation entirely!

After years of resisting (and, frankly, lack of interest) I've finally broken and started borrowing ebooks from the library to read on ebook hardware. What's the most free software version of this I can be doing?

@markzero @confusedbunny actually though! I don't have choochoobot over here. I should remedy that

@markzero @confusedbunny I do mostly have everything working in parallel but have specifically not ported the 78 bot, for reasons I explain here if you're interested mastodon.xyz/@xor/108216897686

I love the openness of podcasting architecture and the ecosystem that it enables, and I will admit to feeling a petty satisfaction that Spotify's attempts to undermine it seem so cursed

Really digging Knotwords, a new puzzle game that's kind of like sudoku slash picross slash crosswords. I'm playing on iOS but it's also on Steam polygon.com/23059935/knotwords

@muffinista the recap podcast I listen to arrived at a similar conclusion

A few recently circulated videos of live performances have inspired me to check out the Harry Styles solo oeuvre, and, I gotta say, it's uniformly pretty solid
