#fediversefleamarket Any UK folks want to buy my Pocket C.H.I.P.? Works fine, holds a charge etc. Just don't use it.

I'm watching the local news in the US and even I can't be shot of news of Prince Philip. Didn't we fight a war to be rid of the royal family?

menstruation + covid vax 

Oh hey there's an actual study gathering data on the menstrual side effects of covid vaccines: redcap.healthinstitute.illinoi

I just did the thing and they did a basically fine job of making the language in the survey gender-neutral so that's cool ✔️

If you are a menstruator (past or present) and have had at least one vaccine dose, consider participating!

Anyone know of an open source #mastodon #bot written in a JVM language (Scala, Java, …). And no: not something that eventually runs in JS on node.js. Thanks

Open source can be really annoying sometimes. People don't seem to understand that I write code for free just to help myself and that they get to use it or fork it as a side effect. Some people even want me to use their code within my project just to get some cred.

Beggars can't be choosers. Come on people...

When Mozart was 8 this tree was over 40.
When first Steam Engine was patented this tree was 50.
When the Wright Brothers flew the first motorized plane this tree was 180.
Now at aged 300 it was felled for a service road for HS2
Words fail me.

Bruce Schneier on Signal's cryptocurrency adventures:

"""
It’s not just that blockchain is just plain stupid. It’s not even that Signal is choosing to tie itself to a specific blockchain currency. It’s that adding a cryptocurrency to an end-to-end encrypted app muddies the morality of the product, and invites all sorts of government investigative and regulatory meddling: by the IRS, the SEC, FinCEN, and probably the FBI.
