What medieval weapons are best suited for tsundoku, the slow growth of stacks of unread books by one's bedside?
Anyone know of a command-line RSS to EPUB converter that will merge all new articles across multiple feeds into a single book, preferably with an option for full-text retrieval?
Looking for more sources of audio/visual material in #publicdomain or #CreativeCommons or licenses giving similar freedom for creative (re)use.

Retoot to write a list together!
For the #OpenDesignCourse for refugees, starting on Monday.
PSA for anyone from a defunct instance who still wants to view their archive, and cant because it's all json:
I made a python script that generates a human-readable html page from you're archive that you can open in your browser to view your old posts.
If you've got python installed, just plop it into the archive, run it, and open the new "processed_archive.html" file it makes in your web browser to read your archive!

ok. what if instead of using 12 word mnemonics for private key seeds, we made you play a drum solo on your keyboard. no im not kidding. you use like d f j k and an 8 bar random beat is displayed and played, you play it back until you get it reliably
drum solos instead of passwords

"While ‘off the shelf’ machine learning tools, like TensorFlow, are becoming more accessible from the point of view of setting up your own system, the underlying logics of those systems, and the datasets for training them are accessible to and controlled by very few entities."
Always cool to be reminded of Moebius’ work, but can you imagine what Dune may have been like if this film version had come to fruition? “In 1975 the cartoonist Jean Giraud, a.k.a. Moebius, was in Paris collaborating with Alejandro Jodorowsky on the never-completed adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel Dune, a project that at various times involved H.R. Giger, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dalí, Orson Welles, Udo Kier, Gong, and Pink Floyd.“

It's my impression that most mastodon instances are operated under the "benevolent dictator" model, but is that the case? Is there a survey of the instances and how they govern themselves?
Sometimes I love the German language for it's absolute simplicity. Seal in german is Seehund, or Sea-Dog. The large bats called Flying Foxes? Flughund. Flying Dog. The entire language looked at two separate animals and went,
"Well, that's a dog."
"But it has wings"
"And that one lives in the ocean"
"Sea Dog. They're dogs, Hans. Get with the program."
To be more transparent about server blocks, I have decided to follow the example of others and publish a list: https://github.com/Gargron/mastodon.social-misc/blob/master/README.md
That list is now linked from our about page. It also explains how different block severities work.
You might notice that bofa.lol is on the list. It's at the very least a temporary measure because our mods had to deal with a lot of problematic content coming from that place yesterday.

Due to popular demand, and the ever-increasing net to explain Mastodon to newbies as every instance is being bombarded with new users...
I've gone ahead and create a video tutorial that should help folks get to grips with all of this platform's particulars:
