    1. Why does LibreOffice's font rendering suck so much on mac?

      I'm a happy Ubuntu user. I love it and I wouldn't switch to other OS. But since I do a lot of video editing and design, I have no other choice than using mac. (I completely refuse to use Windows...

      I'm a happy Ubuntu user. I love it and I wouldn't switch to other OS. But since I do a lot of video editing and design, I have no other choice than using mac. (I completely refuse to use Windows at this point.)

      Anyway, I try to use as much FOSS as possible but I'm having a hard time with LibreOffice. The rendering is really bad and I don't know how to fix it.

      Have any of you had this problem?

    2. How do you explain tech topics when your audience doesn't understand the details?

      Hive mind: What advice would you give to someone who has to give a presentation to a non-technical person, and it's important that the listener actually understand the details? How do you go about...

      Hive mind: What advice would you give to someone who has to give a presentation to a non-technical person, and it's important that the listener actually understand the details?

      How do you go about it? Specific tips appreciated. Pretend it's for a friend you care about.

      (This is for an article. Ideally we could refer to you by reference for context and credibility, eg "an IT security pro at a midwest insurance company" or "aerospace engineer" so please give some kind of identification to use).

    3. Old mobile websites?

      Hey everyone, I'm currently looking for some web 1.0-esque websites, but with the twist of being designed for some ancient smartphones. An example of what I mean would be i.reddit.com , reddit's original (and still fully functional) mobile implementation, or Twitter's site when you access it without a modern version of Javascript (which reverts to a clone of itself from around ~2012). I understand this is a super niche category and there's hardly any of them left, but if you happen to know of any or stumble upon one, please let me know! Thank you! :)

    4. Share Tildes: Web Developers! What personal projects have you made, and are proud of?

      Time for some inspiration. I've been working on a few SaaS applications for the past 2-3 months, and have only really got into it full time recently, and I'm totally in code-mode now, so I thought...

      Time for some inspiration. I've been working on a few SaaS applications for the past 2-3 months, and have only really got into it full time recently, and I'm totally in code-mode now, so I thought I'd ask to see what other people have created in either their spare time, or to earn some money.

      Link your app/tool/product/service! What tools, frameworks, or services did you build it with? What does it accomplish? How did you express your creativity while working on it? What's next for what you're creating?
