Threads specifically about windows VSTs sound like they'd belong there as well, yeah

Re: dedicated subforum for foreign software on wine issues

Sorry for leaving this topic for such a long time. As there seems to be interest I'd be happy to introduce this subforum.

Could we identify 10 or so threads that can be moved into it, so we can give it a 'flying start'?

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

I agree those 2 articles are a threat to individual rights holders, public initiatives and small players.

I've written to the Dutch representatives in the EP and received some promising replies. Not sure if it's realistic to expect anything at this point, but it's the least I could do.

Re: shm tmps

I think it would be exceedingly hard to make a script like realTimeConfigQuickScan perfect. Maybe best to take it as suggestions and not as the gospel truth. It would indeed be impossible to make such a script perfect, but I still think it is much more useful to solidify our collective knowledge ab...

Re: Open Source and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Would you really like to delete good posts? Good advices? Good explanations? Drag good topic out off the line story within? What if, what you see on other forums, it once would happen that a core group runs away, and 60% of the topics gets deleted? What would remain? I already answered this one abo...

Re: Open Source and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

My impression is that it is not a danger for Open Source projects. I agree I'm not too alarmed by it. It is true, however, that the additional rules pose a risk for people hosting things online, and this puts 'community' projects like most Open Source initiatives at a disadvantage. After all, those...

Re: Donations welcome!

There have been some extremely generous donations coming in! I'll respect peoples' privacy and not share further details, but this will last us for quite a while again - to all who donated, thank you!! Also I reached out to the marketing departments of a couple of relevant companies to see if they'd...

Re: Donations welcome!

How many projects are hosted on this server? I pay 3Euro/month and get unlimited bandwidth. I'm not paying for bandwidth per se, but more for the fact that the machines are administered by the good folks at https://uberspace.de/ . We're paying E6/month for hosting, which I feel is fair and would li...

Re: Donations welcome!

After my previous message a number of kind users donated anyway, but we ran out of hosting funds again this month. I (happily) put in E100,- of my own money again to cover hosting for some time. I'm not planning to ask for individual contributions this time: it turns out this is hard to scale, and I...

Re: Peertube is the new FLOSS (and decentralized) alternative to YTube

With which browser is that? Palemoon. I had a quick look and there's good and bad news: the good news is they're not doing anything evil like user-agent checking. This error is shown when there is a JavaScript error before AngularJS could be initialized - which makes some sense. They even looked in...

Re: linuxaudio.org domain is down.

I surely appreciate the work being done behind the scenes right now, but I completely disagree on forwarding visitors of *.linuxaudio.org to the nime '18 conference in the meantime. This is no good idea at all with LAC'18 in the pipeline. A short "We'll be back shortly" would've done it. ...
