Fuck video “documentation” and write a goddamn user manual

Für die, die glauben es sei lustig, die Niederländische Sprache lächerlich zu machen:
In NL wäre das Äquivalent: lautes Gebrüll im Befehlston, gespickt mit "Aufmachen!, "Zu Befehl", Bratwurst und Lederhosen-Witze.
Cool, oder? Nicht? Tsja...

Es ist NICHT lustig, jemanden nachzuäffen, der gerade in der Muttersprache mit seinem Kind spricht - oder ausgelutschte Witze über diese Sprache / dem Land zu bringen.
Ein Erwachsener kann es ignorieren oder weglachen - ein Kleinkind könnte die Idee bekommen, die 2. Muttersprache wäre etwas, wofür man sich schämen muss.
(Jawoll, gerade eben in der Kita passiert)1/2

Reminder: It is NOT funny to badly imitate someone who is speaking a different language with their toddler, nor is it funny to bring stupid old jokes.
An adult will be able to ignore it or laugh it off. A toddler might think or feel, the other language is something to be ashamed of.
(Yes, this just happened to me at daycare with my daughter...)

I'd like a recommendation for an Android phone for a mother with dementia. Large display. Large keyboard. No requirement for any special camera and no other bells or whistles.

I'd like to be able to lock the device down: a couple of icons on home screen, the rest gone.

Email is getting too complicated, so I think WhatsApp will be much easier.

Anybody with similar challenges? I'd love to hear from you, also by email. Thank you!

What's the longest you've used a single smart phone? (Boost for a broader data pool.)

Re-boosting your own posts for 'the morning crew' or 'the night crew' is an acceptable and encouraged practice here. We are largely a community of supportive people who enjoy being given the opportunity to help each other and boost content we may have previously missed.

You should never feel ashamed of promoting yourself, especially as an artist, when it's so difficult to reach people. If anyone doesn't want to see your boosts, they can just scroll past.

#feditips people's pronouns are none of your business. some LGBTQ+ ppl consciously avoid making a choice, some don't speak your language, some don't speak it enough to know about the whole pronoun business (great many no-gender languages out there).

So if there are pronouns in someone's profile use them, if not it's none of your business to interfere with their decision, and you gotta stfu.

Es ist gar nicht so leicht, eine Community aufzubauen. Mein Jüngster ist gerade schwer damit beschäftigt, in seiner Freizeit Treffen und Shootings in Berlin zu organisieren. Alles im Stil der #1920erjahre .

Ich bin natürlich tatkräftig dabei.
Vielleicht hat ja der eine oder die andere Interesse, da mal reinzuschnuppern?

Leider nur bisher auf Instagram, aber wer weiß? 😉

Wer was wissen will - einfach fragen.


@EU_Commission How can we not be afraid when you threaten to send our private communications to anti-queer authoritarians? Don’t tell us to not be afraid, just stop #chatcontrol

What do you call a decommissioned server? 


So I got something right, for a change? I got a team running the WeRWorld Twitter RoCur for Eurovision. Ended up with 3 in the Americas, and 4 in Europe, and we've had like 24 hour coverage, and it's going down so well.

Can't do shit myself but, as someone (professionally) pointed out before, I'm a good facilitator.

I’m not sure how well threads work on here, but let’s try it out.

A thread:

I was sorting through a my #sewing box over the weekend found this tin.


First "fitting". Not much to fit though, as the waistcoat is made for someone bigger than me. But the pattern matches quite nicely, pockets and edges match up well.

Fühlt euch nicht komisch, wenn ihr jetzt noch Masken tragt.
Ihr zeigt damit nur, dass euch die eigene Gesundheit und die der anderen nicht egal ist.
Das macht euch zu den Vernünftigen.

How many languages do you use (speak, write, read) in a normal week?

Nichts ist schöner als die Freude eines fast dreijährigen Kindes beim beobachten eines Eichhörnchens in unserem Garten! ❤️
