There is a solution to this, and it has been done that way for millenia: instead of expecting people to (attempt to) fix problems as they learn about them, make selected people responsible for smooth functioning of certain important parts—include finding about the problems in those parts their duty, and make them responsible for the problems in there whether they knew about them or not. This is why we have public services like fire departments or police, this is why we have separate ministries, etc.

Hmm, looks like I don't see chaos.social toots in my default timeline. I can see toots from several other instances. Is it by design on mastodon.social and how can I fix it?

I'm looking for first hand experience on photo organizing, best practices, software setup

what I'm trying to do
- organize 100+ GiB photos
- tag them
- have a nice way to back them up
- it's a plus if albums are easy to share through web, in that case it should serve lower resolution versions
- if it could deal with different versions of the same photo that'd be great (handling of RAW+JPEG)
- you know, the usual deal

🔁 welcome

Durch die Bilder, welche ich aus verschiedenen Labs und Spaces gesehen habe, bin ich auf ein Wortspiel aus nähen und Necromancer gekommen. Daraus wollte ich dann unbedingt ein Bild anfertigen, was ich nun in zwei Varianten abgeschlossen habe.

Covid in DE - good news 

Looks like we're really getting sublinear in DE. Not the end of the battle (still >5000 new cases/day happen), but the trend is heading the right way now.

STAY AT HOME, a mask only helps a bit.

Since the #GirlsDay workshop @helenleigh@twitter.com and I had planned for @xHain_hackspace@twitter.com is not happening, here's a little consolation goodie instead

If the kind of porn you watch really affects your fetishes, then all the Japanese should be huge fans of pixelart. Hmmm... 🤔

There was time for more complex food at , but during abbau this will do.

I had some left-over switches from the keyboard, so I made a FeatherWing (a shield for the Adafruit Feather boards) with three keys — since the Feather boards can emulate HID device, you could use that to make some macro mini-keyboard for yourself.

The #keyboard is all assembled mechanically, except for the stabilizers under the backspace. I will need to use a thinner USB cable to liberate some free space under that key to add stabilizers there. The cable is on order, but can take several weeks. No hurry with that.

The big task now is to create the firmware. I've chosen the SAMD21 microcontroller for this keyboard, because I'm familiar with it, have it in my drawer, and it doesn't require extra components. But there is no ready firmware for it.

I will call it "McGyver Stabilizers". I just wish I made those holes metalized, I could just solder that wire than. But it seems to hold well enough. The ends of that long wire are going to be bent into Z's and hook against those wires glued to the spacebar.

I just prepared the most stereotypical gift for my parents an IT worker can give. I don't know how to feel about reinforcing stereotypes.
