In the wake of the civil unrest unfolding in Iran, we had one of our largest ever daily spikes in downloads.

Overnight we discovered this video, which is a Persian-language tutorial for using Session created by a member of our community.

#introduction This is the freshly-made Fediverse account for the Kasts podcast player.

Kasts is part of KDE Plasma Mobile but works equally well on desktop. It has a play queue and sleep timer, and supports sleep suspend, saving play positions and syncing them using the GPodder API (e.g. with AntennaPod).

It's available through distro packages or FlatHub.

PS: This account is administered by @mogwai.

looking for work 

Hello fedi, as I'm looking for work, would you please lend me a hand and spread the word?

In short, I can do Chinese--English / English--Chinese translations. And I'm pretty good at it.

I used to translate for the New York Times. After getting my PhD in physics, I worked for the publisher SpringerNature as an editor, but my experience there only further radicalised me against the unethical practice of "academic publishing", and I quitted.

My career in science also saw me accumulating 15+ years' experience with C/C++/Python, contributing to projects such as scipy, numpy, etc. That made me a decent tech writer of documentations, too.

I actually quite enjoy translating -- so much so that I have a page set up for that ->

Samples are available on request. I am capable of most commercial translation projects in Chinese/English. In my spare time, my language skills are further honed by my Ukrainian/Russian/French/Sanskrit/Old English projects.

#privacy For people that don't like to be spied on by closed-source operating systems (MacOS, Windows) there is alternative, that has over, 2000 versions, that is faster, much more private, and more secure, and that is Linux. For beginners there are version of Linux as : Linux Mint, Ubuntu, Elementary OS (that looks like MacOS), Zorin OS (that looks like Windows). You can look up their images, and see how they look like. There are also number of ways how to customize, how your system will look.
