Been setting up a Banana Pi to replace my Raspberry Pi to receive our files using scp, and as a .

Installed Armbian Buster, an excellent OS project supporting over 300 boards, and has an awesome setup tool including hotspot config.

Couple of difficulties along the way, their "headless" OS needs tweaking to actually be headless cuz by default you need to enter a new password on first boot before even ssh access is possible! Needs an ext antenna too.

Default DNS over HTTPS (#DoH) in #Firefox is admirable, tunneling DNS through #Cloudflare is dangerous, as @ungleich sharply summarizes: "whether you trust Cloudflare or not, you'll end up directly supporting centralisation by using DoH in Firefox.

Hola Fediverse! Does anyone know of a really good FOSS OCR tool?

I'm using on online pay tool onlineocr.net because none of the ones I've found give very good results. They all detect the words with pretty much 100% accuracy, but the problem is that only the pay tools seem to be able to reproduce layout properly.
