p.s. The Fediverse app Fedilab (@apps, fedilab.app) has a built-in translation system which works through their own LibreTranslate server.

Fedilab works with accounts from Mastodon, PixelFed, PeerTube, Friendica and many other Fedi platforms.

You can try the server out directly at translate.fedilab.app and it is built into the app itself too.

(Thank you to @futureisfoss for pointing this out!)

These are the cheapest pastels, Mungyo Artists, on Canson 160g sandpaper which I'm far preferring to the Canson MiTeintes, it seems to be able to hold more layers.

Might also be an interesting read for my non-US followers who can learn about cool stuff like how we elect judges based on who has the most irish sounding name

I don't always agree with her but I'm glad there's a jewish trans lesbian who hates cops that puts out an exhaustively researched voter guide for every local election. more places should have this

After many many years my outdoor cactus has decided to flower! 🌼💚

This *looks* like an ancient coral reef, but most probably it is not.

It's on Mars, in the ancient Jezero Crater lake, which dried out billions of years ago.

Hey I found an open source menstrual cycle tracking app called Drip that doesn't call home to anyone and encrypts your data on your device. It's gender inclusive and it has a prebuilt version Android that you can get either on F-Droid or on their site here: bloodyhealth.gitlab.io

They have an iOS version but it's not pre compiled. I'll be working on that today so you can get loaded onto your Apple devices, along with the instructions to install it on said Apple device.

Please boost so others can see this!
