This is Deinococcus radiodurans. These bacteria may be the toughest organisms in the world, surviving dehydration, cold, acid, and vacuum, and withstanding more radiation than probably any other living thing.

Some scientists have considered using them as a way of storing data to survive an apocalypse. In 2003, researchers encoded the song It's A Small World into DNA, engineered it into D. radiodurans, and managed to retrieve it without errors 100 generations later.

¡Nice! In my #fdroid workshops I promote #Streetcomplete as a brilliant app for beginners and experts that you can use to contribute to @openstreetmap while enjoying a geocaching-like adventure at the same time. And that my only feature request would be some gamification e.g. with "awards" or "achievements" to motivate even more people to contribute.

Now I realise this has been implemented since version 19 \°/

Thank you Tobias Zwick!

The first live performance at the Gran Teatre del Liceu opera house in Barcelona, newly reopened after coronavirus lockdowns. A string quartet gave a performance of Puccini’s Crisantemi to an audience of 2292 plants. As you can see from the pictures, it was a full house, because plants have excellent taste, obviously. The plants were later adopted by healthcare workers.

"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."
"I can do that. What's the starship called?"

Long ago, dragons rose up against the gods. After a long war, the dragons were defeated.
As punishment, the dragons were split, literally, and spread across the world. Their diminished selves seek their lost parts.
Once the right nine lives of cats meet, they'll reform a dragon.

turns out yesterday was the sixth anniversary of me completing my first Atreus keyboard build.

at the time it was just a personal experiment for my own use; I had no idea that in the coming years I would personally hand-construct over a hundred boards and sell over a thousand kits to other intrepid hackers.

@codeberg @berkes You could do captcha per issue and restrict issue creation via API to own projects per default. At least until some kind of reputation criteria is met, like contributors to a project are allowed API access.
