Le projet mozilla common voice peut-être tout aussi bien utilisé pour la reconnaissance vocale et pour les lecteurs d'écran, la lecture de texte. Le tout en étant libre et gratuit donc utilisable par tout projet souhaitant mette en place une telle technologie (commande vocale, accessibilité, etc)

En vrai si pas mal d'entre nous ne font ne serait-ce qu'une série de cinq enregistrements common voice par jour, ça peut grandement améliorer la diversité de voix

Pas besoin de connaissance pointues en informatique. Le système est bien fait, il suffit par exemple pour une série de cinq, de lire cinq phrase avec votre ordinateur ou téléphone. Si une phrase est compliquée, vous pouvez la passer.

Si vous ne souhaitez ou ne pouvez pas donner de votre voix, vous pouvez aussi valider celle des autres.

Toujours pareil quand je fais mon forcing, n'hésitez pas à booster ;)

One thing I've changed about my open-source behavior is that when I open up literally any issue or PR on another person's repo, I always start with a paragraph gushing about how much I appreciate the project. "Thanks for creating this project, I really appreciate it," etc. I don't know if it helps, but it makes me feel better knowing that I'm making a bid for that person's time and attention, that I at least tried to send some good vibes their way.

All source code of abandoned software should be open sourced. Manufacturers should be forced to do so on the end of service date.

Happy 30th birthday to The Secret of Monkey Island, the best point-and-click adventure of all time. On this occasion, I recommend a read of Ron Gilbert's "Why Adventure Games Suck", written in 1989 while he was designing the game. Worth a read for anyone who cares about the art & craft of games:

We found an open source license that Google is against so we're changing to it: Hello AGPL!

It helps prevent corporations from taking our code and selling it as a proprietary competitor.

No change to you as a Plausible subscriber or self-hoster.

✋ Advice request!

I just took a job as a #productmanager at a tech company and I've never had that role before. What advice do you have do you have for me?

I love how Best Practices in computer security has, ever so gently yet inevitably, slowly drifted over the decades from "obviously don't share secrets with anyone or you lose" to "absolutely share your most intimate secrets with a trusted giant corporate friend, Big Friend Company loves you and knows your security much better than you do".

It is a very interesting case study in how to change the minds of very smart people who I would have thought would have known better. And yet here we are.

What nobody seems to be talking about:

Due to the increased hygiene awareness and rules, fewer people than typical have been infected with other viral or bacterial infections since March.

"Our influenza season ended pretty abruptly in March. In the southern hemisphere the influenza season has gone almost unnoticed. Most other cold viruses have also become rare." (C. Drosten)

There is a lot to learn and research here.

I'm calling the PiFrame firmware featureful *and* stable at this point.

I deployed a finalized form of the PiFrame @ home by the TV (where we've wanted one for years now) and it's been rock solid.

Updates, loading up pictures, automatic sync, etc ALL work

The only thing left is a 3d printed case/frame (currently in progress) and verifying 3 more LCDs are good to recommend.

Current Bill of Materials (we are only adding some panels in different sizes, all else is sorted) as well as documentation on how to build your own frame are at https://git.kemonine.info/PiFrame/piframe

"Moxie Marlinspike On Decentralization" by David Rosenthal blog.dshr.org/2020/09/moxie-ma

The talk and blog post are both very interesting. I think advocates of decentralization (including myself!) should take these arguments seriously.

I was pretty fed up with the behavior of 'df', so I wrote my own diskfree tool.

It's called 'duf', it's written in #golang, and you can get it here: github.com/muesli/duf

On ArchLinux, you can simply install 'duf' from the AUR.

> A la fin de ce cours, une atmosphère étrange flottait dans la classe. Les garçons à l’habitude exubérants, continuant de bavarder bien après la sonnerie en petit groupe au fond de ma salle, sont gênés. L’inconfort est palpable : il s’est passé un truc mais ils ne savent pas quoi. Les filles, elles, se regardent les unes les autres. Trois d’entre elles ont un large sourire.

Some bad news for folks who are fans of #uMatrix. It's being archived and no longer being developed :

Can't say I didn't see this coming since maintaining a plugin, particularly as an open source project, is often a thankless job with many personal down sides

I hope it can still continue, if not as uMatrix, then as something else. I really don't like to fiddle with uBlock Origin to get the same functionality
