have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?

simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!

because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!

check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!

Oh hey! #Sentry, my employer, has an Open Source grant that you can apply for: https://blog.sentry.io/2019/01/29/apply-sentry-open-source-grant

"Contributing to open source full-time is an opportunity not available to everyone. We’d like to change that with the Sentry Open Source Grant, which offers funding to an individual dedicated to working on an open source project for three months."

Right, I’ll tell you what we’re going to do. We’re going to organise a conference in Europe for people working on ethical alternatives to surveillance capitalism that isn’t sponsored by surveillance capitalism. For people who aren’t afraid to pick a side.

Because I’ve had it with this bullshit and we need non-bullshit alternatives.

Watch this space.

Putting my bins out in the standard #Australian configuration, with recycling and kangaroos separated from general waste.

next few days going to be hot.
Take care of yourself: find a cool spot, hydrate.
Think of your pets.
Put water out for wild birds.

But also maybe consider how reliable the electricity network is in your area and whether it might be better to give your computers a controlled shutdown, at least make sure your backups are up to date and secure.
