Ok, so I'm downloading a photo from Firefox, and the address bar says it's a png, but the download dialogue says it's a webp. What's the deal with that? 🤨

I also contributed trough , a simple app for helping with sorting which areas of often poor countries needs to be mapped.

@openstreetmap I've never mapped so much before. It was a lot of fun, my version of gaming this year.

While billionaires are making more billions during the pandemic, the smaller companies are struggling.

A friend started an ethical clothing brand fairandsquare.no/

He bought a Chinese factory, and even built a new factory in Romania to help Roma people get jobs without discrimination.

But Covid are making things hard for him.

I have an idea for a T-shirt, and want to know if anyone would reserve one if I started a crowdfunder

A T-shirt with the Wikipedia T-shirt article on it. Poll ->

Hurray!

My favorite podcatcher just released version 2.0.

now has a lot of smoother animations and improvements, but most importantly it now let's you set an automatic skip time at the start and end of all episodes of specific podcasts, just like you can set a speed for each individual podcast.

Also: New logo.

And the awesome thing with Free/open source software is how easy it is to contribute. I did, with a bit of thoughts, on this new feature github.com/AntennaPod/AntennaP

The ratios in this part of the 'verse is so interesting to me

@dansup Hey. Tried signing up at two different @pixelfed servers tonight (because I wasn't able to at the first), and got this error message when pressing the Register button at both pixelfed.fi and pixfed.com. You think it's their fault or some bug in the sofftware? Thank you!

Til that what's left of Opera Software AS after they sold the namesake browser to China is now called Othello Corporation, and that some kind of investment fund or something (Sand Grove) that ownes about 25% of it has called for an extraordinary general meeting to elect a new chairperson of the board (Randel Freeman) and a new board member, just weeks after the ordinary general meeting.

Facemasks in the new Gnome store is fun!

But, this is yet another store with merch for a good cause that don't say anything about how their stuff is produced.

Since the clothing industry is terrible, with inhumane, dangerous conditions, even slavery, and terrible environmental impacts, I just don't understand why so many take so lightly on this. Ethical conditions aren't even expensive. I won't support slavery, so I can't buy merch I don't know how is produced.

That's why I love @aptgetshirt.

According to Google Maps the statue of Edward Colston is out in the middle of the Floating Harbour. Anyone who's seen the video of the relocation effort knows that can't be true.

Yet again it seems that the collectively owned and edited @openstreetmap is much more accurate.
