Nehmen wir an es gäbe 2024 die Möglichkeit eines kleinen #CCC Camps im Schwarzwald. Location mitten im Wald, ca ne Stunde von der Autobahn entfernt. Infrastruktur im Rahmen eines üblichen Hausanschlusses vorhanderen, alles weitere müsste ggf zusätzlich organisiert werden. Gäbe es da ernsthaftes Interesse daran? Gibt es Leute, die auch bei der Orga mithelfen würden?

Why isn't the maximum toot size configurable in Mastodon >.>
I see why people would like to post single longer toots instead of threads but I really don't feel like patching the hardcoded value in 4 places with every Mastodon update...

Jedesmal, wenn jemand "Rauter" statt "Router" sagt, wird irgendwo ein TCP/IP-Paket per Hermes Paketdienst zugestellt.

How to Catch a Mountain Lion

I keep seeing lots of long-time #fediverse users saying 'don't favourite posts it does nothing' but actually when you favourite my posts it makes me smile and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Anti-Trans Legislation in Ohio USA 

Ohio is attempting to ban gender-affirming care for minors, just 3 days after the midterm elections, in the session's lame duck status. If you are able to speak out against HB454, or some to the hearing (I hope to do so), please do what you can.

long post on accessibility advice from a blind screen reader user 

OK #Mastodon. I've seen several toots on #accessibility for #screenreader users, however, I've not seen one from a screenreader user (as far as I know). I've used ZoomText, Outspoken, JAWS (AKA JFW), Supernova, NVDA (Windows), and VoiceOver (both on Macs and iPhone). I don't have experience with Windows Narrator or TalkBack. I would like to rectify and clarify a few small things.
First off, any awareness of accessibility issues, and endeavours to make things more accessible is great. Keep going!
Blind/low-vision people have been using the internet as long as everyone else. We had to become used to the way people share things, and find workarounds or tell developers what we needed; this latter one has been the main drive to get us here and now. Over the past decade, screen readers have improved dramatically, including more tools, languages, and customisability. However, the basics were already firmly in place around 2000. Sadly, screen readers cost a lot of money at that time. Now, many are free; truly the biggest triumph for accessibility IMHO.
So, what you can do to help screen readers help their users is three simple things.
1. Write well: use punctuation, and avoid things like random capitalisation or * halfway through words.
2. Image description: screen readers with image recognition built-in will only provide a very short description, like: a plant, a painting, a person wearing a hat, etc. It can also deal with text included in the image, as long as the text isn't too creatively presented. So, by all means, go absolutely nuts with detail.
3. Hashtags: this is the most commonly boosted topic I've seen here, so #ThisIsWhatAnAccessibleHashtagLooksLike. The capitalisation ensures it's read correctly, and for some long hashtags without caps, I've known screen readers to give up and just start spelling the whole damn thing out, which is slow and painful.
That's really all. Thanks for reading! 😘

aaaand i'm off to bed yet again
