There's #scammers out there who will sue US-American companies if their #websites don't comply to government-mandated #accessibility guidelines. Lawyer up and request counter expertise from an accessibility expert. In the cases I've witnessed, the scammer produces a report generated by an automated tool, hoping to blow hard. The available tools however all disclaim: don't rely on automation. Check everything manually. Hire an expert.
Wheelchairs, Venting, Info Request
Does anyone know of any handbrakes for wheelchairs, or wheelchairs with handbrakes?
By this I mean "I get brakes for my wheelchair" rather than "someone stood behind me gets brakes for my wheelchair".
(there are *tonnes* of the latter around, but afaict none of the former outside of one company who make brakes for specific wheels in Texas)

@bremner 's poll made me look at my system.
This is what you get for testing multiple browsers :-(
*All* intelligence performs better in a scope, but artificial intelligence is even worse at setting its own scope than humans are
ML algorithms get their reputation for high CPU usage and large data requirements because they are operating on n-dimensional matrices for excessive values of n. Other computational fields avoid quadratic behavior. AI says, "Hold my beer"
Anything that reduces the value of n for an application is going to reduce resource requirements, whether that's making the task more specific or discovering new constraints to apply early in the evaluation process
That's how gatekeepers and rent seekers get made irrelevant
Basically, "notarizing" is a new name Apple made up for signed apps, which means that literally 100% of software for Mac will now have to be Apple-approved
and they're already putting conditions for approving that software, which we should be very thankful they have relaxed or something
We're looking for audio-visual artists who want their stuff displayed online.

The idea is to build up a sort of community 'TV' (stream), for fedi peeps to watch and have fun!
The computers on the Voyager probes have over 40 years of uptime, and have been patched at distances measured in light-hours. How?
Reliability, redundancy, reconfigurability.
Radiation-hardened parts, cross-connectible backups, all memory is RAM.
They've patched 'em to have better data compression and more efficient forward error correction as distance resulted in reduced bandwidth.
Can cache data when there's no signal. Have turned off instruments to save power.
And also a follow up on my traefik story, where an upgrade of the go version dropped the defaults for TLS connections down to SSLv3, instead of TLS1.0.
The wonderful team around traefik solved the problem and released a new version within 2 days:
That's how things should work!
It’s a very fast bridge! ;-)
