Android keyboard app recommendations? (help) 

@rick_777 Not sure how the swipe works with it since I've not used that feature myself, but Multiling O Keyboard fits those criteria.

@redoak If Pixelfed is overkill, how about Nextcloud/ownCloud?

If that's too heavy, too, maybe something smaller that's client-side-only like reslio Sync? It's not open source, but might work for a bare-bones solution.

@interneteh I have read this four times and still my brain insists you "saw a night librarian".

Darn it, my brain.

@vantablack Oh, frustrating.

It looks as though it's trying to save to a place on your filesystem you may not want it to (the /tmp directory).

Is there a "Save as..." option under the File menu, and if so, can you save it somewhere else?

@matt By the same token, why is "sensible" a word, but not "nonsensible"?

gender, gender neutral pronouns 

If it's not too difficult in your language, consider using gender neutral pronouns (such as they/them) by default for people you don't know or who haven't told you their pronouns, even if they look like a stereotypical "girl" or "guy"!

I was watching a video where a person was going through creations their fans sent them, and they used gender neutral terms and pronouns for all of the people who's creations they showcased. With every video of this type they release, they get many comments thanking them for use of gender neutral pronouns! There have been people who looked like "girls" but weren't and so on who were very thankful, as well as trans people not included in the video that felt more confident and accepted as a result of someone being more inclusive and respectful. You can't tell someone's gender by the way they look, and you can't assume that everyone you meet who's not androgynous is cis :)

Is there, somewhere on the net, a queer women-focused radio station? I'd love to be listening to sweet WLW ballads and queer femmes in general. ^_^

maybe the monster in the dark in the abandoned factory was really just the FAST ORANGE

#Android question: What's the best way to micromanage volume levels?

For example: I want to listen to podcasts without being interrupted by notifications, or keep notifications low so that they don't blow my ears out when I crank up the system volume for a quiet podcast.


Insomnia plus doge allergies (the dog's allergies, not mine) equals bleh.

The amount of caffeine it would take to flip my groggy bit back to normal would probably be lethal.

Nevertheless, I'm trying.

chronic illness is like having an invisible vampire that forces you to carry it on your back while it drains all your energy and since no one can see it they think you're making it up

A long exposure night shot from our few days away in the desert (Prince Albert, Klein Karoo, Western Cape, South Africa). I'd had a loooong-ass day and was suffering from a sinus headache so I couldn't be bothered moving from the stoep of the cottage, and just shot whatever was in frame from that vantage point XD

Yay. I broke my phone even more by replacing the screen!

I had to order another replacement part, but on the other hand, hey, the screen works great.

My device even has a "removable" battery, if I don't mind wiggling the phone case carefully off so I can slide the tape-encased shattered back out.

I'd consider swapping boards with a locked phone that's in decent shape, so I keep my ROM, but I fear I'll end up with one fewer phone if I keep this up...
