I like to update the giant nerd shelf above my TV once in a while. Made some changes a while back but didn't post anywhere, still really happy with this arrangement. #xpost
Whenever I see Spike Lee in that outfit I think he’s dressed up as Wario. #xpost
have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?
simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!
because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!
check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!

@JPEG the Toot! App does this really well.
@JPEG are you still working on timeline positioning during updates? Really hard to focus and continue reading when the list jumps when new posts load. Also still sometimes jumps way ahead in the timeline.

AeroMexico, the country's largest airline, is trolling racist Americans with its latest commercial and IT IS HILARIOUS.
Trust me. I mean, you probably don't know me from any sufficiently self-aware AI, but... just try to get through it to the payoff.
Wowza, just backed my 100th Kickstarter project. Six failed to deliver but were relatively inexpensive. I'm also waiting on a couple that are now about a year late but still show progress. I think that's a pretty good track record and I really enjoy seeing behind the scenes on this stuff.
You very much have to go into it with certain expectations. Always research and get a feel for the creators, add ~2x the time for delivery estimates, and remember you're backing an idea, not buying a product.
Has anyone seen a good review/comparison of 3.5mm to 3.5mm headphone cables with inline mics and controls? Would love to find one with a high quality mic. #xpost
@pragmaticcode would love to see Linky for Mac! Would make a really nice menu bar app as well as in the OS share menu.
Anyone have a shopping wish list app they really like? Trying to get away from Amazon. Needs to have Safari and Chrome support of some sort on macOS + an iOS share sheet plugin. #xpost
