#Poll
Imagine you find a web-based service that looks interesting and/or useful to you. The web site says it's not quite ready yet and lists some things that are still missing, but that it's already usable. There are docs on how to use it.

They say the service is currently "in open beta" and totally free.

Let's assume you don't need the features that are still missing.

→ Would you be put off by the word "beta"?

My experience here is overwhelmingly positive, but how do I deal with someone who has multiple accounts (on many servers), keeps creating new ones, and following me again?

Every time I block him, he pops up again like something from a horror movie. It feels like I'm being stalked.

PSA: I am trying my best to write good image descriptions (alt text), but sometimes I really struggle to describe something. Especially because #FragMyBrain then has a black-out ... I am in the middle of a sentence and then I am lost for words - words that I have used just a few minutes ago. This mostly happens in English (my secondary language - with German being primary and Turkish tertiary). I then use a translation tool to find the best possible translation of a German term. So, sorry for sometimes having weird sounding texts.

But apart from that, here is my biggest problem with image descriptions: How do I describe a COLOR to a person born blind?

I think a person who lost their sight has a sense of color because they used to see them. But a person born blind? How do I do that?

This is a serious question. Really, it really bothers me because when I start writing things like "... the blossoms have pink tips ..." - I mean, what does a person born blind imagine/think what "pink" is?

Thus, my PSA: Any help on this topic, or any guideline how to describe or circumvent that in image descriptions is highly, highly appreciated. I really would not want to skip the color information because that is sometimes a very important one.

So, please 🙏 - if any of you has any suggestions, tips, ... I would be forever in your debt.

Hey @benjaminhollon and other #sway users! Have you ever used sway or a large monitor, and how did you configure it?

I walked into my new office-to-be-for-two-weeks and was delighted to find an enormous monitor sitting on my desk. Unfortunately, the resolution's so high that text (and toolbars, icons, etc.) end up being tiny. On GNOME, I kind-of worked around this by setting the display to 200% zoom (I'd have preferred 150%) but is there an equivalent for sway?

a) open for commissions
b) able to do landscapes (ancient, Roman-era Britain in particular)
c) Are able to do so with historical accuracy (as much as we know)
d) Possibly having artwork that has dead bodies / warriors in the mix (Saxon / King Arthur, et al).
e) OK with having their work be part of an interactive storyworld / game
f) Able to work within a budget (like most of the modern world money is sadly not as plentiful as we'd like)

If this sounds like you please let me know and I'll connect you.

Fediverse - this is a call for help.

I'm doing a course on cybersecurity which requires a fair bit of programming (Python & Javascript among others). I know a bit, but I get easily stuck and need guidance to understand the underlying concepts. I don't have a CS degree, so the learning curve is a bit steep for me. I'm doing this out of interest and greater good™️.

If we can get this fixed soon-ish (before it’s reverted) it’ll mean – among other things – that Node.js will run on @postmarketOS on phones and other mobile devices.

I had a ridiculously detailed dream last night. When I woke up, I felt compelled to instantly start working on a crude game design document because I was so damn excited by the idea! Once I started writing, more exciting ideas started pouring out.

I am NOT a video game designer. I don't code. But I think this game idea has legs.

I've also learned to never ignore these ideas that originate in your dreams.

So I guess the big question is: NOW WHAT 🕹️ 🤔
