I figured MSPsocial would enjoy:

Prismo is an open federated alternative to sites like Reddit or Hacker News.
It's still under development, but the first instance is online here:
It's been in closed beta for a while, but Prismo now has open sign-ups for the first time.
You can sign up at:
have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?
simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!
because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!
check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!

Bike Safety Idea /// P U L S E Show more
There's 20 minutes until the next bike pulse up the road. The path travels down busy streets and cuts north where most of the business are, but the traffic is bad and the bus routes are infrequent.
You pull up to the PULSE stop. Its two blocks before the left turn on the boulevard. There is free coffee and ruba mate for those with a thermos, along with vegan milks. There's a food not bombs table next to a library of zines. A bike tune up station is there with some volunteers, as well as electrical charge cords for hybrid bikes. Seed bombs are freely available to riders.
There's a beautiful bright Rainbow LED sign.
You look around, there's a couple kids, some adults. A few people in fancy bike gear, but most are people like you, just commuting to get to work or school.
You seem them roll up to the front yard PULSE stop. Maybe today you'll have the courage to say hello.

This pharmacy pickup line doesn't make sense. What if I get to the front before my prescription is ready? 🤔

Cool to see that my @email@example.com PR (https://github.com/liberapay/liberapay.com/pull/1366) is now live, showing you which payment types are accepted before you start the donation process. #mc
Oh boy, this looks pretty neat: https://www.attendize.com/
We created a #Drupal module called Give, that allows site owners to create donation forms, and manage donations from within the site itself.
Here's a breakdown of how it works https://agaric.coop/blog/build-and-manage-online-donations-drupal-give-module
Why is it so freaking hard to connect to a network shared drive/folder on #Linux?
A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.
An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.
MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.
We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
