Rain is quite relaxing to say the least. I'm starting to feel pretty alright today.

Also yesterday I learned of a truly terrifying organism called the monkey puzzle tree, which looks like a huge branching eldritch horror.
Its leaves are sharp and shaped like scales, and are clustered around each branch, making a terrible prickly tentacle.
Standing under it is immensely frightening and they're endangered and I'm going to give my life to their conservation

Do you have a glass of water nearby? Time for a sip!

Hi I’m ZoΓ«, gardener and keep at queer.garden (a tiny Mastodon instance). I’m a non-binary lady from the Netherlands who’s figuring out where to go next in life.

During work hours I make sure my company’s application can be used by everyoneβ€”specialising in accessibility.

In my spare time I love to cycle and take photographs. Some of which you can admire every morning when I send a good morning toot into the world.

Hope to see your beautiful face around the fediverse.

Looks like the Foundation didn't implement the full spec.

"The Raspberry Pi team made two critical mistakes here.

The first is that they designed this circuit themselves [...]

The second mistake is that they didn’t actually test their Pi4 design with advanced cables. "

You don't need fancy pens or notebooks to keep a journal and it might help to put your thoughts down somewhere.

This is a pretty compelling reason. Esp. if you are writing open source code.

@tindall ehh... that would have been a great idea. I do think I have some notes that I could whip into a usable state...

@tindall going to the link, I saw stopthemingmy.app/ which is definitely valid, thought I feel like GTK on macOS is a different situation compared to GTK on Ubuntu vs Fedora

@tindall GTK is pretty great! I've even managed to compile gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/fractal for my mac -- though GTK is kinda broken for use on macOS currently. It works, but it's not usable without work to integrate it.

@cryptoad that's cool! i've always heard only talk about how parasocial relationships between celebrities and their fans allow extremely effective advertising, but that's a good view of it.

Fun fact: homeless people are in fact people just like you and you shouldn't be afraid of talking to them or touching them
