I studied urban planning in San Francisco, and I just gotta say, the answer to our urban transportation problems is not self driving cars or 'ridesharing' taxis, all of those things are the way that established tech cos attempts to replace and commodify public services. The real answer is less car traffic, more (and more accessible) busses and trains, and shared public transport priority streets with bike and ped priority streets too. And affordable tickets + paid operators of vehicles.

The Horsehead nebula is a dark nebula in the constellation of Orion. We see it because of glowing gas behind it. In this image blue is [OIII] light , green H alpha, and red [SII].

If you're a Mastodon contributor or Ruby developer who wants to help or whatever, this bug seems to be haunting me for months against all the fixes I throw at it. At this point I'd really just appreciate if somebody with a fresh mind tried debugging it...

If you want to do angry calls against support staff, please make sure you are right. Also, don't ever do angry calls against support staff.

Since my ill-spent fantasy youth my default for a figure–esp. a 'monster'–is to give it a cool sword, so it can be more interesting for me to think abt what they're doing if it's Not violent/brandishy. Here's a using their sensitive hands

🌟&!🌟As a goblin week special, if you buy me a coffee & leave a word in your comment I'll draw a goblin based on your word!

With the leftovers from last night I am going to be eating and all week 😋

@pertho If I remember correctly .. I had to set it in 3 or 4 places too :(

Birthdays exist so that once a year we throw a party for friends and thus feel compelled to hoover the *entire* flat before people arrive. 🤔

@mwlucas @viciousviscosity german efficiency is almost as big of a lie as the myth of german beer superiority.

tmux??? more like Ctrl-🅱️mux

A campaign has been launched in #Berlin to reduce the number of billboards and free up public space.

The group behind it, Berlin Werbefrei, says it would help bring back the city's unique character


@Gargron I just realized that Vim bindings are available by default in Mastodon and it made my morning 👍

Currently looks like this turns out to be a misconfigured HTTP git server.

Yes git, I 💗 you too!

So this week i build a particulate matter sensor using a nodeMCU wifi #IoT thingy:

The data is still from my desk, but i plan to put it outside an measure how dirty #Berlin is.

#editbacklog Usually I like my smartphone images, but this one that is in that small "I wish I had a semi professional camera to shoot this" pile. So much noise to mitigate... even with stacking.


Very faint aurora borealis on top of Orion constellation, also featuring the pleiades. You can actually kind of see the nebula at the belt.

A stack of 3 images. #Iceland. 2017

Edited using #Darktable -> #Hugin -> #imageMagick -> #Darktable -> #Darktable again. Distro of choice is #UbuntuStudio as usual.
