In 1930 the Indiana Bell building was rotated 90°. Over a month, the structure was moved 15 inch/hr, all while 600 employees still worked there. There was no interruption to gas, heat, electricity, water, sewage, or the telephone service they provided. No one inside felt it move.

This reminds me of when I realized toasters tend to have a removable tray as well.💡

The trouble with comparing yourself to others, is that there too many others.

Using 'all others' as your control group, all of your worst fears and fondest hopes are at once true. You're good, you're bad. You're abnormal, you're like everyone else.

Why I have intro music on my video calls

I've been experimenting on my colleagues (sorry gang!) and I've found that video meetings go a little better when they start with a bit of mood music.

This is, of course, highly unscientific and just a little bit silly, but it is fun.

I log in to Google Meet a minute before the meeting start time and immediately share a YouTube video. Meet has this nifty

Some birds spotted on a hike yesterday morning: a California Towhee (the mature one perched on top of a bush) and a bushtit (looking very birb-like). A whole lot of the latter were flying back and forth between the trees on either side of the path, barely stopping long enough for me to point the camera in the right direction.

What's happening in Boğaziçi University, an English brief: 

After the post [1] published in NYTimes, you may heard of a resistance occurs in one of the best universities of Turkey, Boğaziçi University. While BOUN traditionally owns the values of democracy, Erdoğan is an authoritarian conservative who tries to turn Turkey into a nationalist, bossist, islamic country (terrible, I know...). It is expected to see his moves against LGBTIQ+ people, women, non-muslim people, kurds or any other minorities

RE: keepass, bitwarden 

@eelcomaljaars

Ik gebruik op moment KeeWeb met WebDAV (Fastmail) voor sync en backup. Is echter niet ideaal voor mobiel (op moment voeg ik alleen dingen toe op Mac, en af en toe overschrijf ik de lokale kopie op mobiel vanuit de Fastmail app. En het sleutel bestand eenmalig handmatig).

Bitwarden lijkt me een goede compromise! Ziet er goed uit kwa principes, prijs, en ondersteuning. Overweeg ik ook als aanrader in de toekomst.

Alleen hele Australiërs, gelukkig, geen cijfers achter de komma.

(en: Only whole Australians are granted, no decimal places fortunately.)
