Just got an email informing me that the OpenDyslexic font (available from gumroad.com/l/OpenDyslexic via opendyslexic.org/ ) is now SIL-OFL licensed, so there shouldn't be anything standing in your way if you want to use it in a project.

I'm not dyslexic but I appreciate the scanability of the font and really like the concept overall.

Holy smokes, Batman! Holistic Songwriting's ear training exercises are *tough*.

Damn, I'm going to be stuck for *weeks* in each single "day" for a while, I think. I just listened to the next lesson I'll have to do... and I don't think I'll be able to do that anytime soon :yikes:

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

10 years ago I started using ad blockers because I thought ads were annoying. Now I think that's the _least_ important reason to use them.

I think we should call them "browser firewalls." That more accurately describes their purpose.

Seattlites - my company is looking for a Ruby on Rails dev (though if you're experienced that may not be necessary - I was hired with no RoR experience). We pay well and it's a good group of folks. Would love to get apps from non-cis-men/PoC. Hit me up! seattle.craigslist.org/see/sof

Was going to buy a digital album, I'm asked for my phone number *closes tab*

I guess I'll just download the MP3s off YouTube.

Today I spotted *again* a shitty nazi sticker in the subway escalators. I have been carrying random stickers to put them on top of the nazi ones, in case I saw them again.

Today I had to take the escalators down, and up again, to have the chance to put my sticker on top, but it was worth it.
