I found a way to make variable fonts with free softwares only. It requires Fontforge and two Python modules (AFDKO and fontmake). My code here:
#variablefont #python #freesoftware

Hi everyone!

☼ Here's the new Mastodon account of the Domingo Club ☼

We make fermented #food, #opensource tools and explore collaboration with natural processes to promote #understanding, #transparency, #resilience and #equity in our global food system.

Here we want to explain a little more deeply and naturally the things we do, that happen to us, that we create on a daily basis. To take you with us.

Our initiative is super fresh, a lot of things are still to be defined, we take events as they come. We are based in Barcelona, Spain. We speak English, Spanish and French. This account will be mainly, but not only, managed by @focus404.

Thanks to for hosting us, and thanks to @liaizon for the invitation :-)

After a request from @FediVideos I decided to take a shot at updating the English-language narration for the "What is PeerTube?" explainer video. Video is released as CC-Share Alike, feel free to use it where/how it might be helpful for the #PeerTube community!

Anyone know of any resources for facilitating introductions to fediverse/open-source tech to anarchist/mutual-aid groups? I feel like unless a group has a technologist who's already into it, it's difficult to implement. Spent the morning on a call with a mutual aid project who was suffering from a bot attack and couldn't easily/quickly do anything about it because of working on proprietary platforms.

Some big news to round off the trifecta of our IRC gateways: our matrix bridge is now available! You can connect to where #foo is the channel.

A big thanks to @matrix for their support - we know a lot of our communities view Matrix access as a big deal!

Want to join a #matrix channel, but prefer to stay comfortable within your #xmpp account? Turns out runs a XMPP gateway - so you can just join a MUC using the `` JID!

I need to figure out how to involve a community around what my plan for building this is. I also must be REALLY mindful about the environment I am in here. As a gentrifying force I have an oversized effect with just my presence in a place. Especially because the neighborhood that this land is in is mostly inhabited by black folks.

I fell asleep last night watching a "Primitive Survival Life" ( video and dreaming of how I can use the freely available resources in my area to build a structure.

I haven't been posting about it too much because the whole thing was up in the air and felt like talking about it would jinx it but its too late for that now. I bought a tiny piece of land (about 4k sq feet) and intend to build a house on it. I spent much of the pandemic down time watching videos on alternative building techniques and have been feeling very inspired to try my hand at building a larger more permanent structure. I haven't yet figured out how I want to deal with the zoning issues.

RIGHT! It’s beta, but we have a Matrix bridge up for you can connect to where #foo is the channel. Huge thanks to the team for letting us expose the network on Matrix! We are also working through fixing the bridge bug backlog :)

I missed your Strange but True talk @praxeology is there a recording?

was looking up the term 'boilerplate' and while reading the etymology was reminded of the term 'stereotype' which I had never pondered the origins of before
