@libreoffice hi, we installed 6.3.0.4 and now all text documents shows content very pixelated even if anti-aliasing is on. Any idea ?

So not only is mastodon.social trying to ban cross-posting, they don't even want to allow RSS feed posting.

So a news website, which does a service to users, can't even have it's content up here easily for everyone. Well done, good job. This is pathetic.

An official report for the Dutch government concluded:

“(Microsoft Office) systematically collects data on a large scale ... covertly, without informing people. … Microsoft does not offer any choice with regard to the amount of data, or possibility to switch off the collection.”

Don't use Microsoft Office, use LibreOffice instead 👍

It's free, open and you can get it here:

Spammy porn bots have landed on Mastodon. In the last couple of days, I have been followed by 3 nearly-identical accounts. All 3 had female names and female avatar photos. All 3 have followed hundreds or thousands of people and have zero or a handful of followers. They have zero toots and their only profile information is the same blurb about free sexy girls and a link to a porn site.

I'm no prude, but I hope this is not the beginning of a trend. I blocked all of them.

@loke The initial FB import was done in Egypt sneakily, and that was reverted ( news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1 ). FB had to be dragged kicking and screaming to have some humans in the loop for Thailand, and the data quality is still poor. Those edits haven't been reverted.

Grab/GlobalLogic are other paid mappers who are messing up other countries.

(GL tried to sneakily buy votes for the OSM Foundation election last Dec.)

Looks like #Facebook trampling over #OpenStreetMap, and dumping poor data into the commons, is getting some attention and write ups.

I'm excited by this scoop on the end of a robot arm on Mars.

The scoop wasn't even supposed to be there. It's a leftover part from the Phoenix lander. Now it'll be used to try to save the heat probe experiment by packing dirt around it so it can have enough friction to dig deeper.

Do... do Monoprice 3d printers normally come with a calibration print already on the bed or something? (And the instructions which tell you how to unpack it buried underneath everything so you only find it after you unpack it?)

"You're right," the mechanic said, "your battery is draining much faster than normal."
"I knew it!" said the robot.
"Let me check diagnostics... Why is your processor 100% busy?"
"I'm monitoring my battery."
"If you stop that, it will last longer."
"I can't, it might run out."
