Well, shit. I finished the epic handspun cowl! It still needs finishing and blocking, but the knitting is done! #knitting
coffee gear question, boosts welcome
#coffee enjoyers here: I shattered my good porcelain filter last week. I've been eyeing Chemex carafes a bit - are they worth it? Is the taste similar to good filter coffee or something entirely different?
For context: I enjoy the taste of filter/drip coffee - in a pinch, I'll drink French Press. I also like my coffee reasonably strong.
Petition to replace "free as in beer" with "free as in coffee" to be more accessible to people put off by beer-drinking culture.
Yeah, for real. People with religious reasons for not drinking don't need the micoraggression. Neither do people who live in places where beer is blokey, heteronormative or reminiscent of Brett Kavenaugh. ~Everyone~ is the target audience for FOSS. RMS-era Foss jokes all need to be reevaluated and many of them, including this one, have outlived their usefulness.
So, any #recommendations for #instances with users and admins who are serious about being anti-racist and anti-ableist and actually know and learn things and take people seriously? And I don't just mean undescribed images, there is a lot more to it. I am all for blocking all the instances because racists and fascists.
+ lots of creative people
+ sharing work and personal stuff
+ maybe not all US-centered? Or at least open to the idea that life and issues "out here" can be very different
Studio Ghibli just released a ton of free-to-use 1080p images from their films, which gives me hope that we’ll someday see these films come into the public domain.
Two years ago, Microsoft sank a data centre off the coast of Orkney in a wild experiment.
That data centre has now been retrieved from the ocean floor, and Microsoft researchers are assessing how it has performed, and what they can learn from it about energy efficiency.

Some further information: After the 2018 finals, the Iroquois Nationals finished 3rd in qualifications, while the Irish team finished in 12th, but the team was found ineligible because it "did not represent a sovereign nation". The ruling body was open to reversing the decision if the Nationals could find a place for them, and thats when the Irish team stepped up to bat for them.
PSA: if you like comic books, all of the Black Panther series are free on Comixology right now. Ta Nehisi Coates and Nnedi Okorafor FTW!

It's #parkasaurus time!!
Current #knitting progress:
so I now have a general idea of what I'll be doing in my all-day Google interviews
one of them involves reading code and figuring out what it does. Could be in Java, Python, or C++. Does anyone have samples I can look at, and time to answer beginner-level questions about them? C++ is the one I need the most practice in.
A #poll for people who are or would be happy with an M or F gender marker on their own passports:
How do you feel about the idea of nonbinary people being able to have the gender marker X on their passports?
Feral enby. I'm not an interesting person. EN/DE. I only boost stuff that is properly CW'd and has image descriptions (where applicable).
