Did some freshwater wildlife surveys with college students today. They found lots of stuff:

Freshwater shrimp.
Water slaters.
Stickleback fry.
Frog and toad tadpoles.
Mayfly larvae.
Stonefly larvae.
Damselfly larvae.
Dragonfly nymphs.
A water scorpion.
A froglet that jumped into the tray all by itself.

The stars of the show though, were a couple of juvenile newts.


So in a season that ends with a musical number about Bart's vanishing good prospects, this season of has been very informative yet character driven. Each family member got a few great moments. Same for some of the towns folk. was a movie all its own, and damn! As a gay guy, I loved Smithers ep. Also Brandine (the hillbilly wife) is discovered to be Jeopardy smart. And not celebrity, Regular Jeopardy!

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Dear #Fediverse

We need #Volunteers to organize an #Event and #Training for #EU representatives operating the official @EU_Commission accounts.

A month ago the @EDPS started a pilot for #EUVoice and #EUVideo and launched #Mastodon and #Peertube servers.

Many of you interacted, but also observed that communication can be improved. Less :birdsite: birdsite crossposting, more #accessibilty + image #captions. Knowing the culture, #fediquette and learn to love 💖 our fedi.

It's okay to use a timer to remind yourself to take breaks.

I was talking to my co worker today about the queens jubilee and happened to say idk which jubilee it was and this random customer just said it was the platinum one, then happily informed me it was the 70th year of her rule, and long story short I accidentally told a customer I was looking forward to the queen dying :|

Keeping an eye on the Steam forums for a game for a particular bug, which means I run into gems like this

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers - All 300+ Easter Eggs, Cameos, References (w/ Ugly Sonic & Shrek)

CW: spoilers-

Ok, umm. WOW. I -did- not expect this movie to go this hard. Not just on disney cameos, but just everything else. The licensing team on this was must have been busy.

Love, Death + Robots: Volume 3 | Final Trailer
A very philosophical launch trailer for Vol3 showing off even more.

DAMN, the editing of this trailer is glass-sharp. My eyes are bleeding *everywhere*.

Today is apparently. First I've heard of it but I came prepared.

Some Bumblebee artwork I've done over the years.
