A cup of hot water, some freshly grated , and a bit or sugar to taste; an / can be so simple, yet so tasty...

Pro-tip when grating the ginger: put a bit of cling wrap over the outward protruding grater of your before gently grating the ginger over it. Afterwards you can just scrape the minced ginger off the plastic foil with a spoon (or pour the hot water over it), and not worry as much about the cleanup.

I really enjoyed season two of and hope will renew it for a third season.
A bit less humour, and we've got a solid replacement for#STTTNG that could probably go on for several seasons imho.

I have to say that I find this quite impressive. I was curious on how this might impact playability, especially since the slowdown makes it easier on a #shmup like this when having to destroy so many enemies and avoid so many projectiles. Looks like the hacker noted that as well. :smart: #gradius3 #snes

I'd like to #nameandfame pandoc today. Absolutely brilliant #foss tool to convert between many text formats. When writing a scientific paper in markdown but promotors only work with docx, this gem saves the day.

I thought I would share this 1-bit tile-set by KenneyNL over on bird-site.

It's a CC0 licensed #gameassets pack containing 1,024 tiles/items/characters. I love its aesthetics and _will_ be making some things with it.

Something I think does better than by the way, is how its crew is a lot more diverse.
I'm not talking about human inclusivity here, but rather showing more diversity in the kinds of species.
Not all crew members are your typical human-like creature with just some simple cosmetics added, but instead you got multi-eyed beings, something that looks like a mix between a worm, an anteater and a xenomorph, and even non-humanoids such as the Gelatin Yaphit.

I sure hope they have automatic cleanup systems on ships such as and vessels. It would suck to be the janitor who would have to clean up the / / of such starships...

<Isaac> "Negative. There was no equipment failure."

Oh hey, I should post this here too! I made a CSS-only async chat by using background-image requests to send data and long-running http requests to return it.

Hmm, while the [new] label on is nice, it disappearing as soon as I click on the favourite button, causes an annoyance as that shifts the buttons one to the left again.
So, instead of tapping 'favourite' followed by 'boost', I ended up unfavouriting it again instead.
Maybe put the [New] label on the right side perhaps?

The landing party was at a loss.

Many years of research had gone into the reversible but arduous physical and genetic adjustments, with many more years of training to prepare them for this mission.
Some of the crew seemed unperturbed, still excited to be exploring such an aquatic planet.

"Over 70% water, they said," griped the head of security, flexing her long finned tail, "Only to find the most weaponized species is land-dwelling!"

I'm considering getting an , but with shipping to , 25% VAT, import taxes and hidden handling fees, it's likely going to end up at more than double of what the actually costs...
I guess I'll end up just getting the far less powerful 3B+ just because I can get that straight from a shop without waiting for a month not knowing what hidden extra handling fees from importing will be added.

Microsoft apparently still doesn't quite understand the concept of case-sensitivity in filenames & URLs and just changed github.com/Microsoft to github.com/microsoft, in turn breaking a ton of canonical URLs and references.

It's incredible how shortsighted and oblivious a company of that size can be, really 🙄
