#RouterFreedom in #Europe keeps us busy! The recent EU guidelines are differently interpreted in national states. #Greece is a positive example while #Germany effectively endangers the freedom users had since 2016. And in #Austria, the government has the historic chance to safeguard these essential user rights now!

This morning I shared about a proprietary software transforming 2D pictures into 3D pixel art.

In the afternoon, @seachaint made a similar free software in python using a XSLX file (Libreoffice Calc and Gnumeric supports it) and OpenSCAD for rendering. It works very well!

I love the Open source community!
