Hey, I just wanted to say a quick #welcome to the recent Chinwag arrivals!
Chinwag's reason for existing is to provide communication tools for people, which is something I've always been interested in. I kind of target #Australian users, but welcome anyone from anywhere.
Please read our rules: https://social.chinwag.org/about/more
There's a basic guide to using Chinwag Social here: https://chinwag.im/social/
If you have any questions or concerns hit me up!

Any Americans out there who'd be prepared to try to ship me a keyboard cable?
Because I'm a huge nerd, I own a Model M keyboard. However I've lost the cable somewhere.
Places like this sell them at reasonable prices: https://clickykeyboards.com/product/model-m-sdl-to-ps2-cable-36in-standard-used/
... but it's another $35 for shipping, which seems over the top for a cable, which I'm pretty sure doesn't need ludicrous protection, unlike an actual keyboard. It just needs a padded envelope right?
Anyone want to reship one to Australia?

I occasionally log in to Twitter and notice that some people interact with my posts when they're mirrored there.
If you're one of them, come hang out:

Yes, look, I do want to help you solve this issue with the payroll submission, as I have a strong desire for it to work. I am very keen to get to the bottom of this error you're experiencing.
I did not need you, however, to attach a plain text copy of all the payroll data for all staff to the email you sent about the problem.
You're lucky you sent it to a sysadmin who already has access to everything. If you'd sent this off-site, my tone would be quite different right now. #sysadmin
So I've been a fan of Youtube vids that use the default filename as their Youtube name, and just found that @abundance made a page that lets you browse them easily
The first video it showed me was:--
--which is a perfect start to a video surfing journey.
By far the most common request I get is for alternatives to Google's Re-Captcha.
The situation is so unclear that I haven't done an alternatives section on the site.
Do you have suggestions for re-captcha alternatives?
(I know this has come up before, but the discussions are scattered across many threads which people are failing to find.)
A couple of months ago I switched from LastPass to a self-hosted Bitwarden setup for #password management and it's been great. The apps and browser extensions even look nicer.
Thinking about making it a public service for Chinwag users. Seems solid.
