Votes for the poll are closed now. What a... hum hum... "lovely?" color. 😆

Thank you for all the participations! Now I'll try to paint a fantasy landscape with this one as my dominant color. I'll toot it here soon.

( If other artists around want to give this challenge a try , we can tag our toots with the hex address: #5b7376 to collect and discover them )

🎨 A painting/Fediverse experimentation:

With percentages of Red, Green and Blue, you can obtain a precise RGB color definition.

So, please vote for one or more color channel and with the mix of all the votes, I'll challenge myself to paint a fantasy landscape, using the result as the dominant color.

(PS: I'm doing full time inking/penciling on episode 37 and a bit of colored art cool-down would be great! Also I need a bit of 'Fedifun' this week. Thanks for your votes and boosts! )

Spoilers for #StrangeNewWorlds premiere, nitpick 

@spicytamazon My gripe with Disco was always that 1) it's a great SF series but feels nothing like Trek and 2) one apocalypse per season gets tiring very quickly. I've always wanted new Trek to be "TNG if it was remade in 2020", but I'll settle for hi def TOS if need be xD

Am I the only one who hears the Cyan logo jingle (Myst, not the Riven one) when the closing jingle plays?

"A few more days should do it."

#Trekkies! Please remember to use the CW for posting any #StarTrek spoilers. Especially since a bunch of folks 1) haven't watched the finale of #Picard or the premiere of #StrangeNewWorlds yet and 2) *can't* watch yet.

I'm so happy for the cw. :)

Reaction to the premiere of #StarTrek #StrangeNewWorlds

Admittedly it remains to be seen how the season works out. I felt like S2 of Picard looked promising after watching the first episode.

That said, holy *shit* that was everything I could have hoped for.

That -- that left me excited to see where this goes. That felt like a relaunch of Star Trek as a franchise.

I really just saw a thumbnail for a video called "why I quit youtube." it's on youtube, and it's an hour and a half

Neufundländer lag hier gerade so rum. Ohne Herrchen und ohne Leine. Als ich ihn fotografieren wollte kam er guten Tag sagen. „Streichle mich bitte!“
80 kg und lammfromm. Natürlich habe ich um Erlaubnis gefragt.

And I
eee - I
won’t always love you
that seems a bit too
unrealistic to me

we grow
and we change
and I
eee iii
will always die
sooner or later
so will you

The curb cut effect: for example, media descriptions right here on Mastodon help people who use screen readers, but they are also useful for explaining the joke for people who don’t get it, for translations of text, and for copy-pasting what would otherwise be just an image of text.

@vowe Das stimmt zu einem großen Teil. Ich habe mir letzten Sommer einen Prusa Mini zum Geburtstag schenken lassen: Bisher habe ich Zubehör für den Drucker gedruckt (also nur meta-sinnvoll), Schnickschnack und Spielzeug (also Staubfänger). Aber auch ein paar nützliche Dinge wie Airtag-Halter für mein Fahrrad, Wohnmobil-Zubehör, Fotozubehör. Sehr viel findet man schon fertig, Dinge selbst zu konstruieren ist nicht soo schwierig. Aber ja: ein weiteres Hobby, geht auch ohne.

Autofocus glasses!
What with the inexorable march of time etc, I find it harder to change focus from near to far.
These glasses have refocusable lenses (from some horrible cheap dial-eye specs), a couple of little linear servos to drive them, and a couple of endoscope camera modules to track my eyes.
The focus is adjusted based on where my eyes are converging.

Our brains literally evolved to NOT pay attention to boring stuff

We are forced to do boring things because that keeps other folks wealthy

The reason why you want to do hobbies all day is that you were supposed to be an artisan

Artisans were once seen to be the clearest sign of civilisation, not a burden

We have enough food now that all humanity could master the lyre

But we have chosen coin

and coin does not sing

bad joke

Ransom thought: pinned toots should be always editable in a way regular toots shouldn’t be. More like a wiki.
