A story so horrific I am forcing you all to share my pain. I expressed disbelief, but teacher friends on Twitter confirmed it is indeed A Thing.

Students These Days don't understand directory structure, like literally the concept of files organized in folders, reports Monica Chin for Verge: 🐘

fediverse software wizards: is there a *SIMPLE* way to provide a fediverse-compatible feed from a blog-style website I'm planning to set up?

Ideally, people could follow a specific account here on mastodon which will somehow be driven by content I feed into it from the website, like, when I make a new blog post there's a toot and a link to the post, maybe with an image.

I will probably set something up that's pretty manual, but maybe there are.... ways...?

Bizarre moment: found a somewhat larger house centipede sitting on pet house centipede's enclosure. Tried to capture it but it vanished. Do house centipedes, like, find each other, or was it just a coincidence?

As some may know, I work on historical climate data. Quite often we have to hide the work we do in bigger proposals that solve some practical problems. (I also got funding from general programs.)

So I am really happy that Belgium has a program where the aim is to get the foundation right, rather than to produce something that can be published in Nature.

Only Belgian federal institutions can apply, but I am posting hoping more countries will follow.

might have to take the ttc for the first time in literal years ಠ_ಠ
