Grandparents took the kids for the night for their first sleepover so we went to our first dance party in a loooooong time last night. The festival energy was there and we danced hard. I'm completely exhausted but at the same time I feel amazing. What a release.

Machine learning idea:
Model that takes photos of both sides of printed circuit board and outputs its schematics (yes, I am trying to fix an appliance and failing :D)

Does such a thing already exist somewhere?

A BBC article about a community south of us, entirely offgrid. A person of significance there is Hugh Piggott, who designed and built many of the wind turbines that give them power.
When our little offgrid efforts started 24 years ago, it was Hugh's books that helped. He advised us a few years back when we were burning out turbines. I then had the opportunity to work with him on one of his designs locally. I was star-struck, but he is a man of great humility.

@Thomas it's from a set of Scythian tombs, the most famous of these is probably the Ice Maiden because of her incredibly preserved clothing and gorgeous tattoos, if you want to lose an afternoon I highly recommend checking it out!

I am always thinking about how little we know about the past because of how fragile everything that isn't stone or metal is and how many of the little everyday things have been lost to time, on that note please check out this swan stuffed animal from the 4th century BC!

If anyone wants to to help affectees of the flood in Pakistan, pls donate to this fundraiser.


It is organized by socialist-feminist collective with a long history of grassroots struggle.

I can vouch for the people behind it. They are always there in times of crisis, standing up to the militarized state dispossessing people of their land and their homes.

Had a random thought:

How many times have I chosen to "just do the thing" because my need for confusion-dispelling, accurate descriptions of the situation would take five, perhaps ten times as long as simple action?

How many people, by refusing to hear my words, now silently prevent my use of those words?

The Internet is an information and propaganda war where your gun has an opinion on how you should fight, and is also programmed by your adversary.

This is my stance on #mushrooms. They are elder horrors beyond are comprehension. And some of them are tasty 🍄 #sporespondence

TIL - #Python added a case/switch statement after all these years! It's the match statement. Looks very nice.

I'm on 3.7.3 currently though. Need to be on 3.10 for that. Motivation to do a round of upgrading sometime soon.

Hey y'all! As some of you know, I'm running for alderman in my home town of Bartlett, TN.

When elected I will be the first progressive alderman in the history of the city and will be uniquely positioned to make changes for the better.

If you want to know what I'm about, check out thomas4bartlett.com

I do need money to run this campaign, so if you can contribute anything at all if would be greatly appreciated.

The responses would be more and more fine tuned as the system was used leading to more and more automation. Eventually the system was so tuned that when the person died their friend realized they were able to interact with the system as though the person was still alive and they felt as though the person had been immortalised.

I believe the title of the story was Persist, or Persistence, or something of the sort.

The story is about a person who is afflicted by some kind of wasting disease and starts losing their faculties. With a friend's help they get set with a computer and some fancy cutting edge text to speech. As the story progresses they add more and more features to the program to make it easier to synthesise speech. Based on the question asked a series of common responses would be available to select, etc.

Hey! I'm trying to find a story I read in a sci-fi mag someone gave me around 1995. I can't remember the publication (maybe Analog?) or what year it was but it was earlier than 1995 (maybe 1985-1995 range). Anyway, I haven't had the book in a long time but I keep thinking about this story and I'd like to ready it again.

in 2020 with stay at homes looming and me at a crossroads of fighting corporate or bloated indy video solutions I was very pleased to be one of the very early testers of @owncast

In the time since I have tried to advocate and contribute where I can but admittedly I am better these days at helping collectives and users stand up services and hook in other platforms than core coding. With end user adoption growing, unfortunately behind the scenes development is lacking contributor depth to sustain, progress and thrive. I am asking for a Weird Al style Save Our Station call to go out

Owncast has made such excellent strides for an independent, turnkey, self-determined, self-hosted video streaming option, fediverse integration and beautifully eclectic growing user adoption to flourish. Let's keep it going.

If you are so inclined please have a look at helping in the code or do come back if you have previously dipped a toe in the water:

see also for info and documentation:

There are other outstanding actual jobs to help with promo. Can you or someone you knoe rock 2D infographic style explainer videos?

and behold some of the users that advertise to the directory:

I have managed some pretty cool shit for myself and others automating and hooking various boradcasting platforms and simulcasting adjacent and/or without the corporate overlords thanks to Owncast. Direct me if you have any questions how this tool can help you and yours or some more colourful real talk how important it is to sustain this project.

please with vigour!

Alright. I need some help finding some . I've got this see? And I keep planting things and they're doing their thing and I'm eating them like the heartless beast I am... but I feel like I could be a much more efficient heartless beast. I would like to do better planning and tracking of dates planted, quantities harvested, etc.

Does anyone know of a tool that would allow me to
1. Work locally without anyone tracking me to figure out what they can try selling me.
2. Use a GUI to build a garden layout
3. Track planting and harvest details on this graphic layout.

Boosts and addition of forgotten tags are absolutely encouraged, and also I hope you're having an awesome day 😊
