King County Metro is looking for feedback about expanding the current water taxi service to include running between Downtown #Seattle and Ballard.

The routes being considered are:
- Ballard to downtown Seattle and/or the Expedia campus (Interbay)
- Kenmore to Seattle (University of Washington, Madison Park, Leschi Park, or the Portage Bay area)

Survey open thru Dec 23, 2019.

HI SCHOLARS! I'm interested in learning about Robin Hood, and the history of this character in English folklore.

What's the best text on the subject? What is the best collection of tales?

Thank you #foak.

One of the more irritating things is when someone dogs on others "how could a good person ever follow X on social media", as a moral statement.

Just because I might "follow" Nazi Nate doesn't mean I like, agree, or even broadly relate positively to NN. But it can be interesting and useful to see what others think- what's in the water, as it were.

Seriously obnoxious expectation.

Dichrostachys cinerea (Goya Khair), is another of the useful plants that you will find at the Aravalli Biodiversity Park in Gurgaon. It also goes by the name Sicklebush.

The park itself is a young, rejuvenated forest and should be on your list if you are in Delhi/NCR.

very cool conference poster on the phonetics of alien names in star trek. "An analysis of the phonotactics of alien names in the Star Trek franchise suggests that writers are relying on implicit phonotactic knowledge in conveying ‘alien-ness’. In particular, word onsets with low frequency in English are over-represented in alien names, and illicit onsets are repaired recoverably, consistent with markedness subversion." [pdf link]

#Seattle #MendTogether - Mending night at my house, this Wednesday Dec 4, 6:30-9pm.

I provide tea & a light snack, you bring your broken things! We have equipment & scrap bins for textiles, metal, electronics, and bicycles.

In Maple Leaf near bus routes 522, 73, 67; covered secure bike parking. Space requires a few stairs to access & there's a cat.

DM for address / other info.

I'm aiming for 1st & 3rd Wednesdays with these thru the winter, so keep an eye open for future announcements!

boring nerd alert: listening to a steering committee meeting.

for k8s, sure.

also known to listen to/attend city council meetings

on a fairly regular basis, drivers behave threateningly towards me, on bike or walking.

well, happened again. my life got threatened. this time, I was crossing the street with my kid on my shoulder. car saw me, slowed down, then, because I wasn't running across the (crosswalk), sped up, and swerved to miss me.

elderly white couple, bmw. , Lower Queen Anne.

I am tired of having violence threatened against me by car drivers.

I’ve concluded that it’s impossible to mix presentation and content without being ass at both. Everything that tries to marry them is a maelstrom of suck. Traditional PHP, Word, and HTML font tags are good examples of this. In my experience, the only systems that are good at both content and presentation religiously separate them and combine them later, like web templates, Scrivener and Markdown, and CSS. Once presentation becomes part of the content, it always, *always* goes to hell.

Are you a professor of computer science or related field? I'd like to chat about research interests and returning to do graduate school (PhD) as a successful industry SWE.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

to be clear cars in general are fucked, I don't even know how to drive, and towns should just have like a truck library where you go get one if you need to haul manure or something

Part of me wonders how hard it would be to write a modern BBS in, say, Python 3.recent with async.


Could you help me with some pain relief for my chronic pain, plz?

Meds don't really work in this case. :\

I'm a 34 disabled year old unemployed person with Multiple Sclerosis among other things, and my PayPal is temporarily (I hope!) blocked, so I added some things to my wishlists that would help me regarding my back and legs:



Thank you for your help (boosts included, ofc, as they count, a LOT!). :blobheart:

I recognize that this is a niche ask, but does anybody know of any #union #knife makers in the US?

It seems observably true to me that if the radical left completely opts out of electoral politics, we hand over total control of powerful institutions to the right. On the other hand, it seems equally true that to achieve the scale of change humans and our environmental need to live, thrive, and survive (to quote the Blues Brothers), we need to work outside the limitations of electoral politics. I'm coming to think it's a both/and, not an either/or.

Friendly reminder that your DMs and "followers only" posts are all visible to your instance administrator, who (in addition to their hosting provider) can be compelled with a warrant to disclose the contents to law enforcement.

If you want to organize political protests or engage in activities that law enforcement would take an interest in, fediverse servers are not the right place to do that.

Banning cop/law enforcement accounts literally does nothing to help you, just FYI.
