Bump for any recommendations from the day crowd on here, please.
I’d like to pay for a hour or so’s (remote, just for me) training on LibreOffice Impress, and recommendations / leads would be really welcome.

boost from birdsite, US, trans health care
If any trans person reading this is in the US and needs a letter from a therapist to get some kind of gender-affirming care, I was given a list of therapists who have agreed to write such a letter after a single session. Please feel free to DM me for it.
boost from birdsite, request for e-reader recommendations
Anyone out there use an e-reader for reading papers in PDF? If so, what kind and do you like/recommend? Have been thinking it would be nice to have an eye-friendly and sunlight-friendly option other than printing. Color e-ink now exists--have you tried it? (please RT)
OK, Lazyweb, I need some software. I would like a person to be able to:
Fill out a web form,
Endure a modest captcha, and
Validate an email to put the form data in a queue.
As an admin, I would like to review what's in the queue, maybe tweak it, and click a button to post it to something WordPressy.
I'd rather not roll my own, but do want 100% self-hosted, _not_ containerized, and I put a very high premium on understandable simplicity.
What do I want?
I may be reaching a bit, but does anyone know of a good application on Android platforms for editing org-mode (.org) files? The solutions I currently have are:
- Some specially-made app
- Use emacs via Termux
If anyone has a recommendation for an app that's free and does not require rooting the phone, I'd appreciate it. Boosts appreciated!
Ok, I’m looking for recommendations on the #fantasy novels—the fatter the better.
I’ve read the wheel of time, a song of ice and fire, the stormlight archive, kingkiller chronicles, etc etc. The popular stuff I guess. Would really enjoy reading something by women and/or people of color.
But the really important thing is that they’re BIG. And also that they’re on Libby lol.
Thanks in advance.
the jacket liner I was actually *looking* for, and did not find, went with an album which may be titled either "Streetnote" or "Streetnote San Francisco".
The only trace I can find of this album on the web is a partial crawl of the record label's website, https://web.archive.org/web/20030718040743/http://www.streetnote.com/ but unfortunately it was one of those early-2000s image-and-table sites and the Wayback Machine didn't preserve any of the images so it's useless.
Anyone got a track listing for this thing?
My employer, Freedom of the Press Foundation, is looking for a web design firm to partner with for a redesign of one of our flagship projects, the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker.
This is a pretty cool opportunity to do mission-driven design work -- please help pass it along to design firms who you think could be a good fit.
Budget is $40-$50K. Note that we have an internal web dev team, so the focus here is on the design.

Just typo'ed a servername while reconnecting to an IRC channel, and accidentally put in libera dot net instead of the correct dot chat, and you wouldn't believe where I found myself: Back on Freenode. Who've apparently secured that domain, and are using it to try to trick people back on to their services.
@cwebber I have a bad habit of doing mental checksums on nutrition labels and the math very often doesn't work out
