These are the 𝗘𝘂𝗿𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗻 𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗲𝘀 that unite us. 💪
And only united can we achieve an energy-independent Europe with clean, renewable energy - made in Europe.
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.
I woke up this morning to a news alert that our @GirlsWhoCode middle-grade book series was banned by some school districts as part of the Mom for Liberty …
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 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.
(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).
“LinkedIn ran experiments on more than 20 million users over five years … The findings suggest that some users had better access to job opportunities or a meaningful difference in access to job opportunities.”
Me, a decade ago: “you’re the lab rat”
Folks: “you’re scaremongering”
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.

I spent two years trying to do what Backstage does for free
@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.
Interesting explanation from a FOI request about AML, what3words and how they are used.
@alexbloor @cantabtim @onepict @cybergibbons Yea that’s what I would think it’s been released as public I suppose. Upshot is they do not appear to favour W3W but how they train and use it is interesting. https://www.dropbox.com/s/y2sm9fgtpq3m2xc/FOI%20AML%20W3W%20references%20etc.pdf?dl=0

In 1983, Simon Goodwin had a strange thought. Would it be possible to broadcast computer software over the radio?... #ComputerHistory
I built a simple desktop app for @email@example.com and it works great! Along with changing things over to my selfhosted server.
@penpot Its such a great tool, A friend of mine was looking for tool like this for months I suggested him Penpot today and he really liked the application 😀.
