I saw people worried about #vaccines causing death. My wife is a doctor so I asked her.
It's complicated, but the general takeaway is: all medicine has risk involved. Just like driving a car or even walking near a roadway. Yet the risk vs reward ratio is usually such that we decide to use medicine. In people who don't have strong independent risk factors vaccines should not cause issues. There's always outliers, but generally vaccines save way, way more lives than they cost.
Is there a consensus on what to call a #gemini site/pod/capsule/station/port/log/space/home/whatever? We Gemini users are an indecisive bunch.
I think it's time to finally explain what all the #Linux system directories *really* mean:
/usr = Undeniably Severe Repercussions
/opt = Obviously Perishable Trash
/var = Viscerally Annoying Rambling
/bin = Barely Interesting Notes
/run = Rather Underwhelming Nuggets
/sys = Strange Yet Special
/etc = Exclusively True Ciphers
/dev = Delightfully Excellent Vistas
You are welcome.
I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.
Still don't have my own Gemini capsule though :(
I should fix that.
I wrote a tiny Gemini browser in POSIX shell. It uses programs like
less(1) and fzf(1) for interactivity. There are still a few issues and
features to be implemented, but it is basically usable. I mean, I use it.
Probably just me though.
