The Lazuras Heist podcast by the BBC is gripping! It's all about the hacking group linked to North Korea and how they hacked Sony and the bank of Bangladesh for millions of dollars. Behind the hacks are a lot of human stories on both sides and it's fascinating. Well worth a listen!

My daughter just shared this.

⚠ CAT FOOD RECALL | An outbreak of a rare condition that causes severe illness in cats has led to a voluntary recall of multiple brands of cat food ➡

Fold Hill Foods is voluntarily recalling a number of its hypoallergenic cat food products, from brands including Sainsbury’s, AVA and Applaws, over a possible link to an outbreak of a potentially fatal cat condition, feline pancytopenia.

Check out my Codepen!

@glimpse Is there somewhere I can read how to install the resynthesizer plugin?

Been trying out video editor and wow what a difference to despite still only in Alpha stage! It actually uses all my cores and GPU so playback and render is so fast, even with lots of effects. Kdenlive is still good and has more features like LUTs and rotoscoping, but I'm excited to see how evolves!

It has now been a year since we first created this #glimpse social media accounts! 🎉

Given no one expected us to last the summer (let alone produce a release) we think that’s something we can all be proud of. 🙂

Thank you to everyone who chose to support us. Given the very negative way a vocal minority of the free software community was behaving towards us, your kind gestures were much appreciated!

I turn on my computer to find my entire screen taken over by new app I never installed or asked for, and has pinned itself to my taskbar and made desktop icon. Should I run a virus scan? Is it ransomware?

Oh no, thats just mandatory scumbag update forcing an install of its new .

Glad I mostly use Linux now, but I still have to duel boot unfortunately...

The Alphabet #3

y has two sounds:

If there's only one y in the word, or it's the last one of words with more than one y, it sounds like a shortened "ee" like the end of "shabby"

dydd (day) sounds like "breathe"

if there's more than one y, the extras, not the last one, sound like "uh" as in brother, fun.

example "mynydd" (mountain):

muh as in mud
nith rhymes with "with"

The Alphabet #2

Pronunciation is surprisingly easy because with few exceptions all letters are pronounced phonetically, exactly the same way no matter the context.

Once you've learned the pronunciation you will be able to read Welsh with few mistakes.

Pronouncing vowels:

a as in can, map

e as in bet, shed

i as in pin, gin

o as in lot, hop

u "ee" as in queen, see

w "oo" as the 'oo' in zoo, moon

y has two sounds:

Yr Wyddor Gymraeg

The Alphabet #1

There are 28 letters in the Welsh alphabet, 7 vowels, 21 consonants, and 13 dipthongs


Vowels: A E I O U W Y


I've written them in CAPS to avoid confusion, but when written the second letter of a two-letter is always lower-case, e.g. Llanilltud not LLanilltud, Rhiannon not RHiannon.

Just realised 'proper' isn't spelled properly 😂

users I need help!

High ISO photos from my Nikon D5300 have a very obvious bright red pixel when viewed in Darktable (look center then left following along the black of the lens barrel). It's not random noise, it's there in the same position on all my photos going back years. I've never seen this in . I've even applied profiled denoise here (wavelets with HSV colour blend mode). There are other areas like this not shown here. What's going on? Is there a better denoise?

Do you use uBlock Origin? Did you know that you can use the Better Blocker block list on it?

Just add the rules from here:

PS. If you have other rule sets, I’d recommend not mixing them as we go to great pains to ensure that we don’t break sites while protecting your/our privacy. If you are mixing rulesets, we can’t help you if things break :)
