#Grammar #PetPeeve: shortening "until" to " 'til", when "till" already exists (and actually is the older form of the two).

Quick reminder that old games weren't as pixelated as you may think they were because CRT monitors had built-in antialiasing, so modern displays shows more of the blocky pixels than you used to see.

You can especially see the difference in the hair and jacket of the attached examples using Beltiana's character profile from Batsugun.

There's probably a #pun I can make with it, but I'm too lazy.
So, feel free to come up with your own for humanity + Extra-Terrestrials = HumanET.

A good friend of mine will move to #Nijmegen for studying and right now she's desperatly looking for a room, flat or maybe even a campsite. Her demands are "real low" because she knows about the housing crisis there (kind of capitalist shit, isn't it?).

Some facts about her: very smart and cool feminist rebelgrrrl*, makes art and sports and really good pizza. At the moment she works social in supporting refugees. She was very happy about the chance to make her M.A. at university in Nijmegen and is still excited. I gonna miss her so much 🥺💕

But back to topic. I told her, that there are some people from the netherlands in here and maybe somenone has an idea?

PS: Of course she allready searched at universitys residence halls and communal residences, but this isn't easy 600km+ away and with that housing crisis and not so much money..

Also, clearly, I am a disappointment to my mother because she has taken up bird photography as a retirement hobby and comes up with stuff like this all the time

There are these characters. You enjoy them, but only need every so often. For me, it's the § (silcrow/section sign).

It's not printed on my key caps, but... I *know* it's up there, somewhere! Hiding behind a number key, in need of an alt and/or shift. And so, inevitably, I just go and riffle

I'm stuck in this local maximum where this genuinely is the quickest way, yet improving muscle memory in no way whatsoever.

I can't be the only one doing this right?

It's hard to to overstate how much Steve Jobs brought showmanship to his demos, especially when you see someone putting together a Max IIcx on-stage.

All of the thrills of "is my laptop finding the projector?"

Also we are considering accepting donations to cover for the hosting costs. Partly because we expect to have to spend a little more in de future. I was thinking about using Open Collective for this purpose. Who has experiences to share on this front? #mastodon #hosting #donations

Work is on its way to make sure mastodon.nl fills all the requirements to get listed on joinmastodon.org. Hopefully somewhere September it will be done and it will actually be listed as one of the Dutch instances. #mastodon #mastodonnl

Saying "they shouldn't have invested more than they could afford to lose" about people who've just lost everything only excuses those who continue the narrative that crypto is a solution for people who don't HAVE money they can afford to lose.

It was clear. Mt. Biei across the crater was also beautiful.
After descending quite a bit, I looked back and saw the moon.

Complex numbers are all fun and games until someone loses an i. That's when things get real.
