Good article here. Saddening to see and hear that this is still an issue; that Scots refuse to accept Scotland's role in trans-atlantic slavery and that it benefited all echelons of society.

We revisited Cry Freedom as our movie night offering tonight.
That is a harrowing story indeed but at the same time full of hope.

Sure not writing image descriptions is one kind of action that can make a community less welcoming to disabled people.

But honestly, hardline proclamations that everyone MUST write image descriptions or they're BAD (which I'm seeing more often)...also feel pretty unwelcoming!

Even as someone who benefits from image descriptions, I don't benefit from the lack of nuance around disability issues. I don't benefit from being used as a stick to beat people with who aren't writing image descriptions.

Trying to reach out for some #privacy advice. I'm looking to securely share #photos of our family with other family members (not many are that tech savvy).

My initial thoughts were to self host a #pixelfed instance but that might be a bit overkill.
Second, I was thinking about just sharing folders from our #nextcloud but that might not be the most user friendly for the non-tech people.

I doubt I could get everyone on session/signal etc.

Any thoughts? Boosts welcome to reach the right people.

Hey there. I am looking for a short job or some kind of internship (would rather a paid one but meh). I'm finishing my Bachelor (French Licence) this year and I'd like to work a bit somewhere between june and august.
I dont really have a prefered subject nor a speciality since my bachelor is really general. I will continue next year in a Master in HPC but I wouldn't mind doing something else before that.
Ofc It would be full remote since I live in France.
I speak english good enough so that It wont get in the way (I got 8/9 on average at a recent IELTS test).

It really is a bottle in the sea but who knows, I want to be amazed by some Internet magic.

(Boosts appreciated :ablobcatheartsqueeze:​)

Here's the best of my collection of early morning walk sunrise pictures.

What chance have we got when even the Bank can't get it right!
Personal Identification Number

That's it. Deleted my #WhatsApp data from my personal phone and uninstalled the app

I'm available on #telegram and #signal. Also on WhatsApp on my work number until I can persuade a colleague why we shouldn't be using it...

This morning my wife lost her phone
It's not responding to calls or messages and we were out for our usual two mile walk in a gale today so we, by now, suspect It fell out of her pocket.
Then I remembered that I had connected both our phones to the computer with KDE connect and that has a 'ring phone' option not related to the current notification settings.
Hello phone 😍
Thanks KDE connect team!

I wish the video playing issues on Mastodon would get a bit of a fixing session.
I still get this screen on the majority of video links I click.
Is it me or do other folk also experience this?

And on todays wander....Ok, I know, it's the same place but..different lighting :)

Another snap taken during this mornings wander.
A pretty view over a frozen loch with an artistically placed passing place sign :)
I only got this because I spotted my wife setting up for a photo. I find it fruitful to sneak up behind and take the picture too ;)
