Problems we are having with #Signal:
* It is and will remain centralized (clear strategy of *not* federating servers)
* It requires strong identifiers/selectors (phone#) to use
* Author disallows distribution by anyone but Google, although free/libre
* It keeps pushing away verification of fingerprint in interface
* It relies on Google+Amazon infrastructure
* Its funding is shady (OTF = Radio Free Asia = USG)
= clearly unethical choices, unjustifiable by accessibility or technological reasons.

I'm helping someone with their master thesis (formatting 'n' style). It's written in Libre Office. Using word processor like this - it's fucking pain and suffering :C
Gravit Designer is quite nice. It's general purpose vector drawing tool tho (only non FOSS tool I use)
@gaeel that's a pitty but I suppose more modules will come in the future. I like that ports are on the top and inputs are always on the left side
@gaeel Cool! I found info about them recently and I love uniform utilitarian design of modules. Can't wait to see more of your posts :)
@gaeel Is that AE synth?
Merveilles now has its own instance. Please get in touch with @somnius for more details, or visit:
@norikawa I'll probably follow everyone from there :D
@ysengrimm Thank you :)

„Reach for the Stars” by NightRadio from Ether Winds -https://soundcloud.com/nightradio/reach-for-the-stars
This is probably my favorite piece by NR. It gives me chills every time. 💚 (rest of the album is great as well but this is a masterpiece!)
I used to think there is no point in learning modal text editor unless you work with highly structured text (programming, configs).
I changed my mind.
I usually use Kakoune (vim like editor). I have to edit some prose in Libre Office. I can't convert it to plain text, I have to keep formatting. I hate every second of this. Modal or bust!
@spud thank you :)
