Don't call someone a blockhead!

You'd be adding insult to Ian Dury.

I have no idea what the original source is, but right now I can't be bothered to find out.

cycling + bumpy roads + mobile kidney stone = far more unpleasant than anything should be

I have a terrible memory, for $reasons. This is how I roll:

$ grep nmap /etc/hosts
# hello! you are probably looking for the 'nmap' command ...
# nmap -sn

Every computer I own has that in its hosts file. I am not proud, but I am functional

YouTube Regrets - Mozilla and 37,380 YouTube users conducted a study to better understand harmful YouTube recommendations. This is what we learned.

Not sure how to cope with this: a friend's kid has developed a (treatable) lymph node tumour. The friend just posted a picture of said tumour — in all its ulcerated glory - to Facebook

Why would anyone do that?

Call To Collage Makers in OR/WA (Portland/Vancouver Area) 

I'm clearing out yet more old cooking/baking ephemera, if anyone's still interested in a box for themselves. Everything's free, though I can't deliver to you. (Sorry.) Shoot me a DM if you're interested in coming by for some.

(We don't smoke, and we are vaccinated. Also, I can set things outside for you to safely peruse.)

Boosts welcome.

#Introductions I'm new to the instance but not new to Mastodon.

I used to be on but it mostly for the French folk, and now the instance keeps shutting down without warning.

I'm a Python & Django programmer with some interest in Linux, automation and CI. I find working on 3D printers a meditative experience. I also have a very small garden.

I'm mostly posting about my ongoing side projects hashtags for which are:

#python #3dprinting #linux #debian #openscad #diy

For each ISO standard they should assign a negative number for doing the opposite thing:

* ISO -37001 Bribery management systems

#Mozilla #CommonVoice wishes to gain 500000 new contributions by July 20th. Sounds huge to me, but maybe it can happen!
Common Voice is a really cool project attempting to collect recordings from people of all ages, genders, dialects, etc. so that future speech recognition can become more reliable, and so that we do not need to depend on things like Google's captioning service. If you care about #accessibility, #privacy or just like reading out or listening to random sentences, please optionally make an account (to help make the data more easily searchable) and contribute.
This absolutely does not go just for English speakers, BTW. English is doing just fine. If you speak any other languages, please help add, record and sort sentences in it, instead. For example, the Slovenian database is growing, slowly but surely!
Edit: Fixing typos. Sorry!

it finally finished, after a detour into disk repair

to give you an idea how slow this machine is, it took 15 minutes to make a compressed 1.44 MB floppy image. dial-up would've been faster
