Does someone have thoughts on / experience with Cryptomator (cryptomator.org)?

In principle it looks like a good open source encryption tool for cloud data that supports a wide range of operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS)

It would be really cool if we could follow the local / federated timelines of other instances in the standard Mastodon website

(yes, I know that things like the following site exists, but a native integration into Mastodon would be more intuitive and less cumbersome unmung.com/mastoview?url=masto)

What is this? An ????

In meatspace I am normally called Jed, I am half of OokTech, a small engineering company I started with my brother. We make stuff, normally stuff that has some relation to accessibility (remote presence/tourism with robots, privacy respecting home automation) or video (360 video robots!!!). A lot of what we do uses open source hardware and software and most of what we make is open source.

We have a patreon page we need to make better patreon.com/OokTech

While cleaning out my bookmarks I’ve found this site with short stories that are free to download

Does someone have a good recommendation for a baseline 15 inch notebook for about 200-400€?

SSD would be cool, but if not I can also put an old one into it

Just found these old pictures from 2006:

The football globe in Stuttgart & the FIFA World Cup Trophy from 1990

Phone cameras were really terrible back then

It’s the small things that make software / products delightful
