More fun publisher surveillance:
Elsevier embeds a hash in the PDF metadata that is *unique for each time a PDF is downloaded*, this is a diff between metadata from two of the same paper. Combined with access timestamps, they can uniquely identify the source of any shared PDFs.

Saptha exanthista, a Metalmark Moth, spotted at Ulu Sembawang Park Connector, Singapore, on 23 Jan 2022. Nice to be able to spot this tiny, but pretty moth.

One of my favorite things right now is Useless Farm, kinda out by Ottawa, a small farm with livestock just being raised as pets. There's a really nervous alpaca, and a little sweetheart of a miniature donkey, and an emu named Karen who now has her own Live Laugh Love sign for her space and is absolutely trying to murder the owner of the place, and a bunch of other friends, and they make videos. :flan_aww:

Maybe a helpful way to conceptualize media descriptions is to think of the description as the main content and the picture, video, sound and so on as a helpful aid to the text for those who can enjoy it, like illustrations. I'm not saying it's a hard rule, but rather a way to think about things differently, to flip the script as it were.

why yes, I do write alt text for all my posts, it's why I'm so sexy

you too can become sexy by writing image descriptions for your posts and encouraging others to do the same
(if you do not wish to become sexy, writing alt text makes you very cool instead)

Does anyone know if it's possible or had any successes jailbreaking a kindle Paperwhite 8th gen (5.13.7) to have a simple web browser?

I've always wanted an e-ink tablet and this would be rad.

Absolutely loved Rosemary Mosco's Science Friday interview, about PIGEONS. The cooing imitation was truly uncanny. wnycstudios.org/podcasts/scien
