I just released my first "music" EP (album?) on Bandcamp: https://gentil.bandcamp.com/album/solitons-11910s
It's a selection of tracks based on recordings from a century ago.
If you like #experimental #electronic, #noise, #drone or #ambient, you might enjoy (parts of) it!
It's #CreativeCommons -licensed, and pay-as-you-feel + all proceeds go to the Australian Youth Climate Coalition. ✊ 🌈
Boosts appreciated 💚
Portugal does the right thing (covid)
#Portugal has temporarily given all migrants and asylum seekers full citizenship rights, granting them full access to the country's healthcare as the outbreak of the novel #coronavirus escalates in the country.
Future #RStats change, probably for R 4.0.0:
"[...] it was decided to move towards using stringsAsFactors = FALSE by default, ideally starting with the 4.0.0 release."
🎉 great news for simplicity, and consistency with data.table and tibbles, - and for reproducibility too, I just learned:
"When creating a factor from a char vector, if the levels are not given explicitly the sorted unique values are used for the levels, and the result of sorting is locale-dependent."
Happy #TDOV to all the awesome trans folks in this corner of the Fediverse, and everywhere else. ❤️ ✊

🔊 Every last Monday of the month, Kyosk/Interym, a small bar and DIY space in Freiburg, hosts “matriarchic monday” by the feminist DJ collective femBPM. Today, Viper3000 and I would have played there. Since it is closed, each of us recorded a set.
If you like twisted electronic dance music, off-kilter beats, a little bit of House and crude mixing, here’s mine (on SoundCloud): https://soundcloud.com/fembpm/matriarchic-monday-03-2020-jine

This is excellent news: the next major version of @libreoffice , version 7, will include an accessibility checker for ISO 14289 aka PDF/UA:
Microsoft Office seems to have had it for years, and having it in LO7 will be one extra reason to actively recommend the #FLOSS alternative.
Friday evening in Europe - February 28 vs March 27
Any recommendations on tools to do quizzes / comprehension checks when delivering live training online? I would prefer #FLOSS but open to other ideas too.
I was thinking of rudimentary response collection with an Etherpad, in which people can add a character next to the answer they pick, which is enough to zero in on potential knowledge gaps. But the issue with that is that people can be influenced by other people’s answers.
