Hi! I'm Mpho, a programmer from South Africa 🇿🇦 . I'm passionate about #opensource and contributing to it. Currently a student at wethinkcode.co.za learning #python and #java. Personally I'm learning #c (just so I can read it) and familiarising myself with the #GNOME development kit.

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=FontName[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');

Being a mussel in the intertidal is advantageous. The waves bring lots of plankton food and protection from predators. But it is hard work! During the hours the mussels are exposed to air, they must close their shells and literally hold their breath. Their heart rate slows, O2 levels in hemolymph (blood) drop, and internal pH goes acidic due to anaerobic metabolism (like us in an intense workout). They also heat up in the sun and can briefly open their valves to cool off. #clamfacts

L'été passé, Flow a montré comment une piscine ouverte pour être un endroit de mixité bien dégourdi et plein de joie. On ne sait pas ce qu'il faut de plus au monde politique pour se décider à soutenir un projet, alors on le fait avec toustes!
"POOL IS COOL veut réintroduire la en plein air à presque un demi-siècle plus tard. Après tout, tout le monde ne devrait-il pas avoir la possibilité de prendre un bain rafraîchissant par une chaude journée d'été avec ses amis ou sa famille ?
Pour montrer que cela est possible et nécessaire, nous avons construit en 2021 la piscine pop-up . Elle est devenue un lieu convivial et animé pour une ville agréable à vivre, et un modèle pour l'avenir de la baignade en plein air à Bruxelles.
Faites en sorte que FLOW continue d'exister au cours des prochains étés en soutenant POOL IS COOL.
Dès le premier jour, FLOW a prouvé la demande énorme de baignade en plein air à Bruxelles. À FLOW, tout le monde peut profiter du soleil et de la nature, de l'eau et du rafraîchissement. Avec ton soutien, nous voulons garder la ouverte aussi dans les années à venir et continuer à développer FLOW."

'Google verkoopt jou', een gesprek over monopolies van ICT-bedrijven en hoe die te bestrijden. Onze data wordt geoogst bij het dagelijks gebruik van de grote digitale spelers om dan gebruikt te worden voor geldgewin en manipulaties die ver uit ons zicht blijven, laat staan dat we hier nog controle over hebben.
Maar wat doe je er aan? Ik wil op in dit gesprek met oa. Peter Olsthoorn en Thomas Van Oppens alvast uiteenzetten welk alternatieven we bieden met @nubo_coop (mail en cloud op coöperatieve basis) en @nestor (helpt je organisatie privacyvriendelijk te werken).

"Mosses, I think, are like time made visible. They create a kind of botanical forgetting. Shoot by tiny shoot, the past is obscured in green."
