Did you get the ABC Vote Compass follow-up survey? I feel pretty uncomfortable being asked to rate Asians, Women, Jews, and Indigenous folks.

I bought 3 California Rolls today at my local sushi place, and as normal they gave me 3 little soy sauce fish, one for each roll.

I asked for extra soy sauce, how many extra soy sauce fish do you think I should have received?

My day job is the business manager of a primary school. There was only one party that left all their crap behind after the weekend.

Wait why does this work so well?

I can actually focus on it rather than having g to reread like 3 times.

Any accounts out there with more followers than @Mastodon (606K) that you know of??

Anyone know a Masto instance for gardeners? It might be the gateway for my wife to get off FB. #ask #garden

Okay, I'm curious, when did you guys first hear about/join Linux? Please boost for a wider data pool. :boost_love:

This shouldn't really be a surprise to anyone here, but:

Shopping on woolworths.com.au? If you use a browser extension that blocks facebook (like I do - using Firefox which has it by default) then the site does not work at all -- search for an item, and it just spins and nothing happens. Allow facebook access to your browsing on woolworths.com.au so they can track you across the web, and suddenly everything on woolworths.com.au starts working again. (With Firefox you can use a "Facebook container" which allows facebook to track you only on that site and no others -- still not happy about it!)

They are tracking you far and wide across the web, watching your shopping habits even when you aren't logged in to facebook at all. It should be illegal, but they have very deep pockets to donate to governments all over the world.

<- this means delete the entire company and codebase from existence, not the FB app, but do that too!

I had a banana seat wheelie bike like this when I was a kid and it was the coolest thing I ever owned. I’m thinking about getting one for my daily commute. For context I work in my neighbourhood school and my ride to school would take about 5 minutes. 😄

A weird-Cold-War anecdote.

When the system of giving the President codes to launch a nuclear attack was first developed, there was a lot of debate over how it should work.

One proposal was: the codes should be placed in a capsule, which would be implanted under the skin of a presidential aide.

That aide's job would be to carry a butcher knife, ready to hand to the President at any time.

If the President wanted to launch the nukes, he would have to kill a man with his own hands to do it.

This is why you should read The Guardian - an excellent take on last night's "debate" by Katharine Murphy. Her writing had me in stitches and then I realised what's at stake and felt very sad.

Being someone who refuses to engage with any Facebook products on ethical grounds is like trying to live as a vegetarian when all your friends refuse to meet anywhere other than one specific steakhouse.

Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

Same for bash, command line tools, and so on.

I want using & contributing to FS/OSS to be easier for way more people.

Boosts appreciated!!
