LibreLingo

Published on in 🔗 Links

LibreLingo is a relatively new open-source project that seems to be inspired by Duolingo. The demo already looks great, I learned the Spanish words “pan”, “pasta”, “leche” and “pareja”.

Make music with Excel

Published on in 🔗 Links

Through this article by The Verge, I discovered this YouTube video by musician Dylan Tallchief. He used Microsoft Excel to create a DAW (a digital audio workstation) called xlStudio. With that you can create entire songs in Excel spreadsheets and even export them to use them in the software suite Ableton. I don’t know much about music or music production, but this looks pretty awesome.

I think I finally got ActivityPub support for this blog working. On Mastodon, you can search for @en@jlelse.blog and @de@jlelse.blog to follow the English and German blog. You should also be able to search for the URL of any post and reply to it. But remember that it’s only possible for the reply to appear in the “Interactions” if your profile isn’t locked (so your reply is visible to the public). I will write about my implementation later, when I’m sure everything is working correctly.
