I'll try to organize a #mechanicalkeyboard #meetup @mch2022camp: wiki.mch2022.org/Session:Mecha

If you bring your mechanical #keyboard(s) or other interesting #hid (human interface devices) to #MCH2022, feel free to come, show it to others and try out others' keyboards. If you don't have a mechanical keyboard with you, feel free to come anyway and try them out to see if this is something for you.

Oh, and I'd be happy if I get some help in organizing this session. Still need a location.

Eine Anrechnung des 9-Euro-Tickets auf Hartz IV ist völlig daneben. Eine Regierung, die Entlastung für alle will, muss auch alle meinen und mitnehmen. taz.de/Archiv-Suche/!5858379&s

Our timeline is filled with people celebrating that #adobe plans to offer a freemium version of #Photoshop for the browser.

Just in case you didn't know:
#GIMP, #Krita @krita, #Inkscape @inkscape, #Scribus and many other great graphics tools are already available - free/libre to use, free to improve, free to share. Check them out! 💙

cryptocurrency, nft, scammers, I repeat myself 

So, a lateral move then:

"Anna Sorokin, the scammer who convinced people and companies to give her hundreds of thousands of dollars by pretending to be a German heiress, has decided to get into NFTs. After winding up with a "scammer persona", which she says is a result of the Netflix series about her and not a result of the scams that landed her in prison, she has announced her intentions to "move away from" it. Now she is focusing on an NFT collection, which she announced in an interview from a detention facility in New York."

Einige Leute denken, sich politisch für einen bewohnbaren Planeten auszusprechen - also als Menschheit überleben wollen - sei „woke“ & damit per Definition eine der größten Bedrohungen für unsere Gesellschaft.

Es ist ein Rätsel, wie die Menschheit so lange überleben konnte.

Glaubt mir, wenn Euch in 20 Jahren Eure Kinder fragen, was ihr damals gemacht habt, als noch Zeit gewesen wäre die Klimakatastrophe zu verhindern, wollt ihr nicht antworten: „Nix, weil Leute die Gendern mir suspekt waren & in der Zeitung vor „Wokeness“ gewarnt wurde.“

The thing about large language models like GPT-3 and Lambda describing the experience of being self-aware is they can also describe the experience of being a squirrel.

I think that both Star Treck and Star Wars should end. Movie companies should do something new. Same goes for all the superhero movies, unless they are going to do something different like Comrade Superman they should give up. Enough sharks have been jumped.

Auch wenn Schutzmaßnahmen massiv runtergefahren wurden.

Damit konnte ja nun wirklich niemand rechnen! 🤡

#Sommerwelle

#RKI meldet 100k (!) neue #Corona-Neuinfektionen.

:mastoread:
tagesschau.de/inland/rki-zahle

Und das obwohl:
- nahezu keine Testpflicht mehr
- an PCR-Tests zu kommen massiv erschwert ist
- Kontaktpersonen nicht nachverfolgt
- und eigene Infektionen nicht mehr ans Gesundheitsamt gemeldet werden müssen

Aber #Pandemie ist ja vorbei und #Masken braucht auch keiner mehr. 🤷🏼‍♀️

@kensanata something tells me there isn't a shortage of cryptocurrency workers anymore 😂

@Sandra That, too, of course. As long as the Balkans are poor while still being able to pay for nursery school and German courses, we will hire them and give them low wages over here. I read a dark interview a while ago about a German teacher in Bosnia and the interview ended with her saying: "… and when everybody else is gone, I will turn off the lights and emigrate as well." 💔

My search-fu in F-Droid fails me: is there really no open source process monitor (think top or htop) for Android?

Ich musste eben noch einmal daran denken, wie toll es in Kopenhagen war.Natürlich gibts da breite Autostraßen. Die man zu Fuß gefahrlos und ohne Ampel überqueren kann, weil kaum Autos unterwegs sind. Kein Todesstreifen. Nirgends. Als Fußgänger musste man eher auf die Radfahrer*innen achten, das war sehr ungewohnt. Die Stadt war verhältnismäßig ruhig, weil der Autolärm fehlte...

Doch was schwelge ich in Erinnerungen, ich setze mich jetzt auf mein Rad und fahre todesmutig in die Stadt...

Hiking in Switzerland: the apps. There two apps I recommend: both have the current and historical maps, public transport stops, hiking trails (the yellow ones are ordinary hiking trails, the red ones are mountain hiking trails, and the green ones are trails recommended by the tourist bureau, on the national, regional, and local levels – some of them are multi-day routes). Swisstopo Allows me to create my own routes and shows me height profiles and time estimates; SwitzerlandMobility gives me the details for the green routes (the same info as on the website).
The same info on the web:
