Hey Moxie! Tell us again why centralization is the best way to deploy internet messaging for the masses.

Does anyone here know of a good text-to-speech engine? I'm trying to render Swedish. I've played with espeech, Google's TTS and Amazon Polly. It turns out that GTTS with WaveNet voices is magically good, Polly is good enough, while espeech sounds like my Amiga did back in the late 80s/early 90s...

Is there any FOSS alternative out there that actually works?

The developer of closed his accounts on because he was harassed by people who resented him for not including a block of Gab'n co on his app..
Gab is now out of Fedi, this happened thanks to admins maintaining proper instance block, not because of apps.
Remember that harassment is a major offense, no matter who's harassed. It is destructive. If you feel some behaviors are problematic, block, report, do not harass!

There's also another Goodreads alternative for the Fediverse in development, though it's not yet in beta. It's called Readlebee and you can follow its progress at @Readlebee

Today in digital archaeology: I wanted a PDF calendar generator and found one from 2009 that seemed nice, but the website had long ago disappeared. Luckily the internet archive had crawled it, and since the code was GPL'ed, I was able to update it to build on a modern system and produce page-a-day agendas for my e-ink tablet.
