For those with a Pinephone keyboard, we forgot to include a driver for the charger, which is why it does not seem to charge even with the battery on. We should have this fixed shortly.

moxie seems to believe there are only two options for how services can be hosted: self-hosting or commercial hosting.

completely ignoring community hosting.

that reinforces my feel that community hosting is one of the biggest advantages of fedi.

(he is absolutely right that #web3 is crap, of course)

Shitposting aside, I think 2022 is going to be a great year for Linux on the desktop.

Would also be curious on folks thoughts on the licensing of such a collection. Does not seem like UG is paying any licensing fees for its user-contributed tabs, but it feels like if it was as easy as creating a public DB of tab files on GitHub, someone would have done it already....

My vision would be something similar to the Radio Browser [1] which maintains a dataset (of online radio stations) used by several open source apps. When a user of one of the apps contributes a new station, it benefits all the users of the other apps too....

Does anyone know of an open source data-set for guitar chords?

There are several great open source applications for creating and maintaining personal collections of tabs as well as several libraries and services that will scrape tabs from UG, but there does not seem to be any kind of community maintained set of guitar tabs. Can anyone point me to something I am missing here?

Standard Ebooks is a pretty great source for #drm-free #ebooks. They take #PublicDomain books from #ProjectGutenberg and improve the quality (typography, metadata, cover art, etc).
