Hi! This is the official #Bookwyrm account. Bookwyrm is a federated reading platform (think Goodreads). Post about your reading and stuff! You can interact with Mastodon users and vice versa. We are going to toot development news and more.

But now with FF 88 this option is ENABLED by default. Which means, if a PDF file contains JS it will run without any user interaction. What can possibly go wrong?
To disable this:
pdfjs.enableScripting --> false
# FF 78.10 ESR doesn't include this option and still blocks JS in PDFs by default. Just tested.
This morning I shared about a proprietary software transforming 2D pictures into 3D pixel art.
In the afternoon, @seachaint made a similar free software in python using a XSLX file (Libreoffice Calc and Gnumeric supports it) and OpenSCAD for rendering. It works very well!
I love the Open source community!
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.
While reading up about the importance of encryption on the Internet I found that #protonmail
are on Mastodon.
There they have links to their blog, etc.
The Internet could not survive without #encryption and anything that weakens encryption would enable more crime than it could ever prevent. It would be like keeping the key to the front door under the door mat.
I'm also very interested in #jami, a fully distributed, end-to-end encrypted communication system.
Today I found the time to take a look to this talk in #FOSDEM21 (Sorry, I lost the link to the original toot recommending this talk)
I must say that I liked it. It went through a path never expected to be taken. Didn't expect to talk about smalltalk, LISP, and other OSs I never heard of them, like Oberon

I have started working on my ROES SWR meter again. Hope to finish the v2 of the project in the next week and get some PCBs printed.
This has been int he making a long time now. Always wanted a super high-tech SWR meter.
