The Hubble Ultra Deep Field is a little, seemingly empty, patch of the sky in the Southern Hemisphere. Astronomers first pointed the Hubble Telescope at it for a full 11 days back in 2003, and just let the light trickle in. Since then, a number of follow-up campaigns have added infrared and ultraviolet light to the original observations. The result is stunning!
The only regret I have about buying the base model M1 Air when it was on sale for under $900 including tax is that its SSD is too small to contain my entire music collection. That will need to reside on a drive hooked into a RPi and accessed over the network.
WFH vs. office, OOC
I agree. When I have my IC hat on and am only thinking about being an IC, WFH is unambiguously better than bothering with a commute.
However, when I am in a supervisory role, WFH blinds me to the qualities that allow me to nominate worthy successors to myself or *my* boss.
As the #Donkey would say, "you're a *female* dragon!"
Perhaps we'll write more #CookingWithCharizard one day.
@ticky I’ve been advocating this for years
No one listens
Because you can’t be a sponsored global influencer on a special interest group when your reach is only a couple thousand or so lol
But I truly believe the best internet was an interconnected set of communities that while separate, everyone could find a special home base to be in.
Also yeah my bookmark folder of “friends sites” has diminished to nothing and I’d like to see that filled out again
FanLore.org is an amazing resource.
If I ever did write that #essay about what sets bronies apart from other fandoms, I'd pull my terminology straight from there.
My thoughts would be longer than their actual article about Friendship is #Magic (due to adding in-line explanations of linked articles), but pretty much every major point I'd say is on there in some article.
Top Two Examples:
Genesis 1 but for pokémon
Nidoking and Nidoqueen He made them… He named them "Pokémon" when they were created and said to them "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the water types of the sea and the flying types of the air and of every other ground and rock type that moves on earth."
There is no moral calculus by which it is acceptable to defend personal harassment. Criticism, fine, parody, also fine, intersecualally informed dialog between peers, also also fine, preferable even!
Harassment is not. If you participate in or defend harrasment, my only advise is to take a long, hard look at steps you've taken to justify that position in your mind, because i gurrentee the kinks and knots that exist there are not worth having.
How to maximize yield when incubating a clutch of charmander eggs
1. Before you engage in activities leading to the creation of eggs, increase the #metal and #ceramic in your diet.
Thick metallic shells provide a number of benefits:
a) Strong shell strength
b) Better heat #insulation. You do not need to be as precise with breath temperature when heating them.
c) Better heat retention. Because they can be cooked hotter, you have more time to leave the nest for battles & hunting before it's time to return to reheat them.
2. A trick for polishing the shells
After heating the #eggs to the lowest red glow you can see in the dark, gently bathe them in dragon breath. Supposedly, this practice also helps to develop their cardiovascular systems.
3. During incubation, around 60% temperature strength tends to produce optimal results. You'll know when it's time to #reheat them next.
4. Once the eggs are jumping on their own, they're nearly ready to hatch. Bake the whole #nest in full-strength fire breath. This is important for two reasons:
a) It softens the eggshells for easier emergence
b) The extra heat lights the tail flame of the baby charmanders
It's important not to use the full fire until it's hatch day or else the fires will light prematurely and use all the oxygen in the egg.
5. You should now have a nest full of molten smashed #eggshells and miniature charmanders. Between now and when they leave the nest, bathe them in 35–40% strength #fire every 7–12 hours to maintain their body temperatures and fry off any external #parasites.
