We suddenly have a lake in the paddock across the road (although this is what it's for)...

About two months ago I decided to use my spare time to work on a Plasma Mobile/Kirigami podcast player. Mostly because I wanted to do a hobby project to learn qml. And also a bit because there seemed to be no (mobile) linux podcast players which were anywhere near what I wanted to see in a podcast player.

Two months later I suddenly find myself with developer access to KDE and a project under review for regular release through KDE / plasma mobile. 😃

I love the FOSS and KDE communities!

Most people never read terms of service - but even when they do, "agreements" are subject to unilateral "renegotiation" by companies that engineered high switching costs as a means of corralling you into clicking "I agree" to things no rational person would *ever* agree to.

Consent theater lays bare the fiction of agreement. Real agreement is based on negotiation, and markets are based on price-signals in which buyers and sellers make counteroffers.

New Zealand treats animals inhumanely – but it could become a world leader in their welfare - theguardian.com/world/commenti interesting how the famously green NZ isn't actually that green...

I've just had a good recommendation for a fully #FOSS Client Relationship Management system (CRM) - EspoCRM: espocrm.com/self-hosted-vs-clo They can host your data, or you can. You choose. Any web service that doesn't give you that option is effectively ransomware, holding your data hostage.

Lately I've been reacquainting myself again with #FreeCAD after 20 months of barely using it. I was a little surprised to see that 0.19 still hasn't been released yet (its development had started when I left the community). I use the development builds. When using it just for a few minutes, I didn't notice many changes. But I've been using my 3D printer again, and I needed to design a few things I wanted to print.

There are huge improvements across the board.
