Pope Pius XII has written personally to President Roosevelt, begging him to ban Allied bombers from targeting Rome & avoid any danger of hitting Vatican City or the many churches in Italian capital.

We're still looking for the right person! Do you know anyone?

@PINE64 this is called 'interdiction' and is how the #FVEY plants hardware implants.

What measures do you have to prevent surreptitious hardware from being implanted by FVEY?

Hey, #Fediverse, do you use (say, at least once per week) any Mozilla products?

Context: some people are claiming "nobody uses Mozilla's products anymore". I'd like to see if that's actually true.

Amfora is roughly 1 year old. It has 543 stars, over 60 PRs, 34 outside contributors, and over 1.5K downloads (GitHub only) as of right now.

Is this in-line with other open source projects of this size and age? Are some of these stats low, or high? I have no frame of reference as this is my first major community open source project.

@josias Basically, the pitch or intonation of the voice changes based on syntax (string, keyword, bold, italic, heading levels). Only Narrator on Windows 10 comes anywhere close to this, and only in a prose-reading context. It doesn't even work anywhere near well with VS Code, which is ironic since they're both Microsoft products. I actually asked them why they don't make it work with Narrator, and they were silent.

Looking for people who regularly use screen readers to browse the web.

A dev version of #keyoxide [1] currently has 100% #accessibility score by #lighthouse [2] and 0 errors according to WAVE [3] but still I'd hope to receive some real-world feedback and ensure what I develop can truly be used by all.

Boosts appreciated.

In oftentimes I quickly would like to switch rendering between plain and html.

Is there/can there be a shortcut for » View » Message Body As » [Original, Simple, Plain] ?

@civodul I strongly disagree with this decision. If you're unhappy with the way GNU is governed, you should be trying to reform GNU from within.

Forking GNU is not the answer.

I want everyone to know:

gnu.tools/ is not the GNU project, and some of the people in it were on that list opposing RMS recently.

We need unity within GNU. I *urge* everyone not to join in on gnu.tools, it is a mutiny and a coup. We all need to show the *real* GNU project on gnu.org our full support!

The Activities Overview Hot Corner is an easy target, the top left corner is quickly reached according to Fitt's law.

Navigating the pointer from there to the thus appeared Dash in the bottom of the screen is quite a distance, though, isn't it?

Maybe a future version of Gnome Tweak could have an option to define (a center part of) the screen bottom to trigger Activities Overview (Hot Bottom ) …

@ryanleesipes I have reservations about this. I think that Thunderbird should concentrate on being the best email program possible. I don't know how Activitypub fits into that.

David Arch boosted

Hey guys, Thunderbird is STILL hiring developers. You can help modernize an application used by ~20,000,000 people and growing!

The open source community can make something better than Outlook, but only if folks come and build it.

@Sommer Sorry for mentioning both of you just like that, but I got the feeling that
@devinprater's writings about their first hand experience with Apple re. accessibility could be a nice read.

It needs a Gemini browser such as Elaho on iOS in which a resource like the following can be rendered nicely:


Cheers, have a nice day!
