Hi! If you feel the itch to help out the open science hardware community in a pretty easy way, you can sign up (or nominate someone) to be an independent election observer! We have a new election for new council folks next month, and you can help the election run smooth! forum.openhardware.science/t/i

ufw (a firewall) uses rule numbers when you want to, say, delete a rule. Does it display the rule numbers when you list them with ufw status?

No, of course not, that would be too easy (you’d win the game right away, where’s the fun in that?)

So, instead you have to type ufw status numbered.

Remember kids, beautiful defaults are for newbs and losers. Real gamers play in hard mode.

“Algospeak” is a new English dialect that emerged from the desperate attempts of social media users to “please the algorithm”: that is, to avoid words and phrases that cause social media platforms’ algorithms to suppress or block their communication.

#Algospeak is practiced by all types of social media users, from individuals addressing their friends to science communicators and activists hoping to reach a broader public. But the most ardent practitioners of algospeak are social media creators, who rely—directly or indirectly—on social media to earn a living.

my last #introductions post is pretty dusty so ... here we go. I'm one of the old-timers who joined the fediverse in early 2017. got a blog at technomancy.us

I grew up in Indonesia and Singapore and lived in Thailand a few years.

I write software for a living but I try not to make my feed here be just about that kind of stuff. trying to decolonize my head but it's a slow process, and I rely on help from those who have been doing it longer.

in the past I've supported the free software movement, but nowadays it's clear to me they've lost their way and that no meaningful user-empowering movement can succeed without an explicit anti-capitalist foundation.

I lead the development of the #fennel programming language and like to participate in game jams for fun: technomancy.us/games

I make weird keyboards: atreus.technomancy.us

Please enjoy this awesome video of the HR 8799 system made by Jason Wang, for anyone who hadn't seen it yet.

(See: jasonwang.space/orbits.html)

The star itself was blocked by the telescope so we can see the planets, though some of the light still scatters around the edges. All four known planets are visible. The orbital motion is interpolated from a series of images taken by the Keck Telescope in Hawaii.

As for the planets themselves...

We were the only ones
We were the only ones
And now there's no one left
Alive to tell
About how we weren't so scared
Before the ocean swelled
About how we used to live
Before the ceiling fell

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?

Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩

I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

“War will continue until ‘Russia decides to end it,’ UN Secretary-General says”

edition.cnn.com/europe/live-ne

Oh, that’s ok, then. No rush or anything; it’s just Ukrainian lives we’re talking about. And, clearly, the rest of the world has zero agency in the matter… Seriously, I don’t expect much from the UN at the best of times but could he possibly have uttered a more impotent remark?
