My first convo is with @zspencer@twitter.com, talking about his experiences with @WeCohere@twitter.com and @ZincCooperative@twitter.com.

fun ubuntu problem, help req 

i downloaded a pdf of lead sheets and tried to print it off. what wound up printing was a very entertaining but not very useful spin on musical notation. as in, instead of note heads, some pages had dollar signs, others had open-parens.. etc. one had circles that were almost right but too small, so it was theoretically legible but impractical.

anyone know where i'd even begin understanding how to fix this? thanks in advance.

This shot of the same Black Phoebe (after it started to fly off, then decided to just land back on another post) came out a lot better!

Hey, Cybre denizens. Does anyone run Nextcloud on TrueNAS (fmr. FreeNAS)? It seems like a decent solution to get the most out of my 4TB of SSDs.

LB: tech / uspol 

the right is saying: "big tech colluded to censor us"

the truth is: big tech colluded to profit off giving a platform to the far-right and allowing them to organize and plan.

Losing the ability to profit off of hate the capitalists behind 'big tech' are now reacting.

Stopped for a bit today on a boulder by a burn, just below the treeline.

These four images are all from that one rock.
Yet, still we could have taken a dozen more, and *not* captured the biodiversity within a very small space.

It occurs to us, that often when biodiversity is talked about in the media etc, most of us have no real idea about what that means.
The levels of complexity in natural habitats are almost incomprehensible.
