Dear fediverse: do you know of any online shop in Europe that sells food-grade paper packaging such as bread bags in quantities suitable for the needs of a household (a min quantity of 100 pieces is fine, 1000 is not, 10000 is definitely way too high)?

Excluding amazon / ebay / other big platforms.

Thanks, and boosts welcome

Gentil fediverso: qualcuno conosce dei negozi online in Europa che vendono imballaggi di carta per alimenti, tipo i sacchetti del pane, e che vendano a privati in quantità adeguate a privati (acquisto minimo 100 pezzi va bene, 1000 no, 10000 è decisamente troppo)?

Che non siano amazon / ebay / altre megapiattaforme.

Grazie, e i boost sono graditi

“The Soviet version includes some plot elements left out of Jackson’s $93m blockbuster, including an appearance by the character Tom Bombadil…”

Long shot, but does anyone I follow have a copy of the publication EIA-305 Display Storage Tube Nomenclature? The last printing was 1978 and the only place I've found to get a copy costs $78 and is a "Secure PDF," which sounds likely to be unreadable garbage.

The Game Devs of Color Expo is back for 2021! Last year they had over 1,500 attendees and gave away $90k in game development grants. Their 2021 event will run from September 23–27. This year will be online again!

Game submissions from game developers of color are now open.

They’re looking for speakers, too. All speakers will be paid.

Applications close on April 15 at 11:59PM Eastern

Wow. Real-time simulated view of the solar system: "planets, moons and spacecraft are shown where they are right now".

Search for, say Voyager 2, or New Horizons and you can switch between the view of the solar system from the spacecraft, or locate it relative to the solar system.

Are you in Hong Kong or do you want to be in Hong Kong?
Do you want to work with me?
We want someone who can help grow and teach Python and/or TypeScript/React developers and drive our code quality and architecture forward, but we're also looking for junior developers so don't let the requirements scare you off if you're interested.…

Do you want to work two desks from me?
Are you more of an opsy person and want to help us develop and automate operations around the platform itself that we and teams all over the company are deploying on?…

I'm not a fan of April fools' day, but I have to admit I generally appreciate a good Rickroll. Maybe because the joker owns up to the joke right away, and it's a fun way to say, "Just kidding! I had you convinced, didn't I?!" Also, it gives me a chance to listen to the song. "Never gonna give you up...🎶 " 🤔

For the past few nights I have been falling asleep to the extremely 70s supercomputer energy of this 12-hour Cray X-MP training video playlist, via our friend Chris:
"Octal chauvinism" was apparently still a thing in supercomputer/minicomputer circles well into the 80s. So weird.
