every German is a girl now

sorry, I don’t make the rules

"Today while on the train I wrote a small app that queries the bord bistro's menu from the onboard API. You know, normal things people do on a train" @nicofee

E-mails you don't want to get early Monday mornings: One kid in our daughter's daycare group tested positive this morning...

Sometimes BirdShite can be good. I run the WeRWorld RoCur (Rotation/Curation account) and I've organised a team of hosts for this, #Eurovision week.

Anyone who's on BirdShite and is into #Eurovision may wish to tune in to the @ WeRWorld RoCur (rotation-curation account) this week as we have an international team on deck this week, rather than just a single host. Should be fun!

nonsens, political blasphemy? 

forgive me father, for i have sinn féined

If anyone missed it last night, I've launched a BBS (yes, an old-school BBS, text interface, you access it via telnet) to act as a chill social hangout for #trans folk.

Since it just went live, it's very small, but if we can grow it into a cozy little community, I think it could be pretty great.

If you're interested in the details, contact me directly.

Boosts are also appreciated!

The word for "keyboard" in dutch sounds like "toots-in-board" hehehe

Nano is the best CLI text editor.

An alle Gitarrenliebhaber:
Mein alter Lehrmeister, Norbert Roschauer, hat sich mit einigen "akustischen Kollegen" zusammengetan und zu folgendes Werk beigetragen:
"Acoustic Guitar for Peace"
Mindestens 50% (10€) vom Erlös gehen an
Über einen boost freue ich mich sehr!

"Ja, der Auftrag bezieht sich ausschließlich auf den Neuanstrich der Außenfassade.
Und nein, wir können ihnen keine Angaben zur Quadratmeterzahl nennen. Schätzen sie es einfach aufgrund der Höhe und Grundfläche des Gebäudes."

The foreparts of the waistcoat are prepared for fitting: all four pockets are in, both parts are canvassed and the inlays have been roughly basted along the edges.

We would like to search for translated articles on scientific repositories like #ArXiv.

Searching for "translation" or "translated" gives many false alarms. Adding a language would likely work much better. Does anyone have an idea how to get a list with the names of "all" languages?

Similarly how to find a list with the translation of "translation" and "translated" in many languages?

Wikidata has a list of 100+ languages and the word translation (but not "translated").

Viele von euch, die hier folgen, sind ja von Twitter dazugestoßen und neu hier.

Worauf ich freundlich hingewiesen wurde, nachdem ich's verkehrt gemacht habe:

1. Beginnt jeden Tröt mit den Worten "Zaggadadisch duff dsch dörke." auch wenn das mega unangenehm klingt vor allem wenn man es laut ausspricht.

2. Ändert in den Einstellungen alles auf "melancholisch" oder "verworren".

3. Kommentiert nur wenn ihr es ganz dringend wollt oder wenn die Zeit reif ist.

4. Viertens.

Here's a post-mortem of what we saw on #Fosstodon over Monday and Tuesday with the influx of new members from Twitter.

Thought you fine folks would be interested in something like this.

2 foreparts of a "bespoke waistcoat-to-be". 4 pockets inserted, fronts should match later on too...

The Mirror Fediverse is shorthand for all the servers full of hard racists, fascists, abusers, etc.

If you come with some horrible shit, people won't just block you; they'll report you and talk about doing so. If your server admin doesn't shut your shit down, isn't seen to be taking action, we'll talk loudly about THAT, too, often using the #fediblock tag.

Your server will start disappearing—not for you, but to everyone else. You'll softly and suddenly vanish away.

Be good. #feditips

Ich habe mich die Tage mit Freunden über Corona-Fälle in der Bekanntschaft unterhalten. Wir hatten einen unterschiedlichen Blick auf die Anzahl der Infektionen.

Ich würde zum Abgleich gern mal von euch wissen, wie oft ihr bisher mit #Corona infiziert wart:

(RT sehr erwünscht)
