Speaking of next level shit... To save the sound of Stradivarius violins forever, they brought in master luthiers, and recorded every note one at a time. Every transition. Every sound you could make. And now there's a database so one could craft new music with Stradivarius violins without owning one.
But the truly next level shit in here is that they shut down and put the cone of silence down around the recording studio so the street noise wouldn't fuck with the recordings.
#Android users, this one's pretty neat:
Blokada is a system-wide ad/content blocker for Android, slightly reminiscent of uBlock Origin. It does *not* require root, it's free software, and it's available on the F-Droid store!
I've been using it for the past few days, and it seems to be working well.
The Big 1.0. – Riot
Riot, the default and most mature client for #Matrix just hit 1.0, with a huge redesign <3 If you have ever checked Riot before, but didn't like the looks - please give it another try! If you haven't tried it but like things like, dunno, #Slack for example, have a try and you might be pleasantly surprised.
Somebody posted at work slack:
After two days of usage, I don't see anything significant missing, and the migration process was a breeze. Highly recommended.

@ekaitz_zarraga Sure thing! I use it daily, and it's pretty neat. :)
@ekaitz_zarraga uBlock Origin has a built-in JS blocker which works well, and allows per-site whitelisting.
@zladuric Ha, istina! Poslat ću još jednu najavu za par dana pa ću se sjetiti staviti, thanks. :)
Announcing the Zagreb Rust Meetup!
The talk will (probably) be in Croatian, but if you're nearby and don't understand this gloriously convoluted language, don't worry about it & come and say hi. :)
@trebach Ah. Still a neat idea, though!
I was surprised by the MIT instance because it's on an .mit.edu subdomain, which means it has at least a minimum of institutional support.
@trebach Cool! Is that an "official" instance in any way? I.e. is it used / endorsed by any city officials?
@pettter Nice! :) The more, the merrier!
I hope this will become a thing more academic institutions -- and related entities -- will embrace!
Whoa, I just realized MIT has their own Mastodon instance! The future is now!
