Recently I told you about my planned "output rewrite" for Adebar. First version of that is now available for Testing (in the "devel" branch) – and I'd very much welcome your input! Ideally in the corresponding issue (

I'm looking forward to your feedback (and boosts) – and thanks in advance!

Nice to see you pick up my fdroid rfp for PDF Viewer πŸ˜ƒ. The lack of a v1 sig is currently a blocker for the main repo.

Would you be interested to add Auditor from the same dev? Its a powerful app but needs to be signed by dev to work (and again no v1)

Degoogle a Google phone

Big bright pink drifts of ragged robin (lychnis flos-cucli) splattered around all over the meadow. Makes it look a bit ethereal - bit hard to capture on camera.

They appear to like it in the shallow gullies. These 20cm deep gullies are carved into the surface, about every 10 meters, like in many other meadows on the Somerset Levels, to keep things a bit drier in wet spells.

With the recent sudden rush to working from home, and restrictions on people meeting up, there has been a huge growth in the use of video calls. There has however been some question as to who to trust with handling these calls.  Many are choosing to trust the open source software Jitsi, but there are things worth consideration before moving to use #jitsi.

I'd love to form more of a community with other designers, especially those focused on and who share slash values.

If you do too, respond to this thread and we can see where it goes from there.
