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! ❤️

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").
