:heart_pan: happy pansexual pride day to everybody who uses that label :heart_pan:

Aaaaaaah, please someone give me focus and motivation for work 💦

oh noes, there's a rogue unicode character somewhere in my bibliography. The file has about 2400 lines 😱

It has been established in canon that starfleet's Starship Discovery is capable of traveling to different dimensions of sorts, so basically it's perfectly reasonable to drop a star trek away team encounter into your DnD campaign.

If you want FOSS tools to still be the "I pay for it with my time because my time is meaningless" then we don't need to change a thing. Keep on making it so folks have to play some perverse roulette to ensure that things work with outside printers and publishers.

But if we're ever going to show that we're just as good as the professional tools then we need to start emulating all of the imperfections of those tools. Specs be damned, if everyone else figured it out so can we.

I've already tried YarnSub and the ravelry yarn suggestions that are compiled from user projects, and I know about the planner at I'm rather afraid of combining multiple brands (with different gauges), but most I've found are not well stocked in the green colours.

I'm gifting my sister wool for a new project she got to choose and she chose the Hue Shift Afghan, explicitly not wanting the standard rainbow pattern. I think I have an idea for a blue-green-yellow hue shift that fits her living room well, but now I'm desparately looking for reasonably-priced wool that ships to Germany. Because OF COURSE, the suggested KnitPicks does not. Any suggestions/experiences?

@Juju have you seen the polar bear baby at Hannover Zoo? SO TINY

Art project idea:
"Gendered" bathrooms with e-paper signs that change to different arbitrary symbols every day.

Symbol pairs will be chosen so that each day most people will manage to fit in but each day someone else would actually prefer a third/forth/fifth option.

Examples: Star Wars vs. Star Trek, Apples vs. Bananas, Vim vs. Emacs, Triangles vs. Squares, Coffee vs. Tea, …
you get the idea…

Oh yes, I had a Request for #Fiberarts / #Fibrearts folx. I had a pattern gifted to me last year, but the problem is, while the rest fits, I'm too busty for it. If there's anyone with experience modifying #Crochet patterns, if I FF Send it and my measurements to you, will you help me modify it for my bust? It's a cardigan, so I feel like it can't be a lost cause, you know? :ms_weary: Alternatively, tell ME how to do it.

I really really REALLY need to get some work done. But what am I doing instead? Selecting yarns for a future knitting project 😩

Cassidy, the coder of #ravelry, came out as #trans this august !!

it has unfortunately only made the rounds on corporate social media while the fediverse didn't take adequate note. as a mod on this instance I need to remedy that!

let's celebrate!!

Hi and good morning! I would like to write an update on my (German) articles about joining #mastodon, and I admit I'm not up to date about the cool and quirky instances that do fun stuff, like that deletes toots based on the moon phase. Can you please help? Thank you for answers and boosts! 💖
