i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!
these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.
(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))
Yesterday I've tried again to take part in local emcom exercises. Last week I wasn't heard by the calling station, yesterday I was standing in almost the same place, but have used 3/8 λ antenna (Komunica PWR-SRH-607) instead of the one bundled by Yaesu with the radio. This time I was heard and even got a pretty nice report! Lesson learned: antenna really matters 😃

That's the third time this week I read an article talking about how Apple invented the smartphone and mobile applications. Who's spreading this nonsense?
Yes, Apple made smartphones popular (I guess?). But let's not rewrite history here: we had smartphones and apps several years before the first iPhone got released.
