Parental attitudes have a huge effect on our minds, it's where societal reinforcement of STEM being mainly for boys happens. The best time to encourage STEM is early in a kids development. Boys tend to be encouraged from an earlier age in computing, maths etc.

Computer, ARM history 

The ARM chip was also designed to run at very low power. [Sophie] Wilson explained that this was entirely a cost-saving measure—the team wanted to use a plastic case for the chip instead of a ceramic one, so they set a maximum target of 1 watt of power usage.

But the tools they had for estimating power were primitive. To make sure they didn’t go over the limit and melt the plastic, they were very conservative with every design detail. Because of the simplicity of the design and the low clock rate, the actual power draw ended up at 0.1 watts.

In fact, one of the first test boards the team plugged the ARM into had a broken connection and was not attached to any power at all. It was a big surprise when they found the fault because the CPU had been working the whole time. It had turned on just from electrical leakage coming from the support chips.

#Snowflake helps people connect to Tor bridges in countries where #Tor is censored.

Snowflake thus enables you to showing solidarity with people in countries with restricted #freedomOfSpeach, but it won't put you at risk!

There are two options how to run Snowflake:

(a) Inside a browser (easy option for most users!): You can install a browser plugin or just keep open the above page in a tab and toggle the purple switch.

Firefox addOn:
Chrome addOn:

(b) If you don't want to keep a browser open, or if you have a computer that runs all the time, you can also install a standalone program (see next toot).

It's very easy to be careless when implementing code. I'm not surprised that this happened. Complex interacting systems where we pull in lots of projects, means that extra care needs to be taken.

Today is the International Day of Sign Languages!

EU countries must have by now transposed the European Accessibility Act, to make life easier for at least 87 million people.

We want to empower persons with disabilities. Zero barriers and full rights.

@suricrasia it’s not quite what you asked for, but I think HTTrack could give you what you want. You point it at a site, and it creates a completely static copy of it with all internal URLs rewritten so they point to the right place in the big pile of static files. I’ve never tried it on a Mastodon instance, but I’ve successfully used it many times to create static archives of dynamic sites built on other software.

The global politics are unfortunately affecting open-source audio. Not in a good way.

The developer of LSP plug-ins may soon be forced to serve in the Russian army. He's previously expressed his strong stance regarding the war and is definitely not on board.

The Linux Studio Plug-ins (LSP) suite is one of the most advanced and high quality. A real beacon in the libre audio.
