What are your favorite writings on stewardship?

(I'm specifically interested in this in the context of writing about license stewardship, but anything that talks about the concept that you find worthwhile reading is appreciated.)

Bump for any recommendations from the day crowd on here, please.

I’d like to pay for a hour or so’s (remote, just for me) training on LibreOffice Impress, and recommendations / leads would be really welcome.

QT neil_neilzone: Who knows someone who / a business which offers an hour or so’s specific one-on-one training / hand-holding on @libreoffice Impress, via jitsi, in English?

why you shouldn't always skip beginner tutorials: they give you an opportunity to see how others would teach a beginner on a topic

hey is there anybody on the fediverse who lived in germany between like 1982-1984 and listened to NDR

or anyone who was active in the music scene there around that time

or even any radio DJ's from that era

because the world could use your help solving the mystery of the most mysterious song on the internet



basically, all you need to do is read the wikipedia article and listen to the song and hopefully you'll recognize it and remember who it is

boosts appreciated, you never know, fedi might be the place to crack this case!!! :boost_ok:

Photo by my partner, who noticed it outside. Not pictured: same owl about a minute beforehand eating a spider from the front gate.

Not 100% sure which kind of owl it is--maybe a screech owl?

Things I did for the first time ever: drove on the freeway alone (one exit down, one exit back, still too nervous to actually leave the city that way and anyway I can toot on the bus).

Things done this week for the first time since March 2020: gymnastics class, pole class, voice lesson, bus ride, BART ride, in-person meeting.

(OK, I'm only on my way to the last one.)

Tremendous respect for the trolling game of whoever made this Safeway pizza-making display.

Just having a normal one at the Grocery Outlet.

family, covid, kind of a downer 

This is my dad, Tom, with me as a baby.

He died about two months ago of COVID. We hadn't spoken in a while so it felt strange to post about it, but it also feels strange *not* to on this Father's Day.

Stay safe out there, and help keep others safe.

LB: volunteer amnesty day is a great concept. It's hard to gracefully set down a volunteer responsibility and I think at least half of my mutuals are people I met doing some life-eating volunteer thing or another so I hope it will be useful to someone.

now there's a website: volunteeramnestyday.net

The next solstice is Monday, June 21st, 2021. Maybe you should take a moment between now and then to list out what you're responsible for, so on Monday, you can announce that you're setting something down.

I suddenly realise who that creepy old man was who called my name at the playground when I was six.
He shouted I should remember to buy apples, and then he just vanished.
If I had invested in Apple, maybe I now could afford enough energy for my time machine to let me stay longer.
