Wait, Samsung's keyboard case for the Galaxy Tab S4 puts the S-pen holder...on the *outside* of the case?

I suppose that's ok for carrying it in your hand, but if you ever put your tablet in a backpack or a bag...do you need a case for your case to make sure the pen doesn't fall out and the holder doesn't break out as things shift around?

Guardian of the Woods.

I could just imagine the squirrel proclaiming, "Turn back, traveller, and do not cross the shadow of these woods! Turn back now, while you still can!"

Hey, wake up!

Wake up!

September's ending.

Hello Fediworld 👋

most of the #switchingsocial website is restored - have a look:

switching.software
(or swiso.org for short)

I want to thank @gemlog for preparing the web-archive version and @LuKaRo for extracting the missing pages from the Google Cache. Would have taken so much longer without you two 🙂

Today I was driving where the satnav told me, while thinking about how we've gone from humans programming computers, to computers programming humans.

Hi Fediverse 👋

it's @tobias here, broadcasting via this new fediverse account representing (formerly) #switchingsocial 🎉

Please follow, dm and @ this account for everything related to the English version ... as @swisode wants to write German posts again 😁

It's been one week since the #shutdown. There hasn't been any news from the original author yet. So, I believe, it's on us to keep this project alive.

Please stay tuned as I'll ask for support here - after some more preparations. 💻

*sigh* The correct response to "Please take me off your postal mailing list" is NOT "Welcome to our email list!"

Yeah, I've experienced this myself. When driving in areas I know, I can ignore the directions sending me and a zillion other cars onto the tiny residential streets with the blind corner, but there have been times when I was going somewhere unfamiliar with a deadline and I trusted the directions, only to find myself in a massive traffic jam on a street that just wasn't made for the volume.

I found this yesterday. If both Neil's can have impostor syndrome, then yeah, there aren't any grown-ups. 💙

even if you go to mars, that's an average distance of 14 light-minutes. phone calls, vidchats, all kinds of synchronous communication all go out the window. you have to go back to asynchronous methods for interplanetary communication: emails, forums, comment sections. in a sense, going to space means going back to the 90s

Until a different variety of commercial bananas comes to market, the only way to save the Cavendish banana from Fusarium wilt tropical race 4 (TR4) fungus may be genetic engineering or using CRISPR to add fungus resistance to it.

Fitness tracker: *bzzz!* You still need to walk more this hour!

Me: *stands up*

Fitness tracker: *Nicely done!*

Apparently I was one step short of the goal. 🤷‍♂️

Finally stopped to take a photo of this tenacious palm tree. Not sure whether it was planted or if it just took root next to the support pillar back when the Green Line was new 2 decades ago. It's clearly not actively maintained, judging by all the old dry fronds still attached, and I keep wondering if it'll get taken out as part of the construction of the Crenshaw line...but that construction's almost done, and the tree's still there.

♲ @FeministEmiIy@twitter.com: idk who needs to hear this but Toxic Masculinity as a concept does NOT mean “masculinity is toxic” and it does NOT mean “men are toxic”

if you understand that “rain” and “acid rain” are two different concepts with two different results then this should not be any harder to grasp
