Via @rstockm: (tiny) spiders fly by taking advantage of the difference in charge between the ground and the air (apparently 100V per meter and more). This is amazing. “Spiders have been found two-and-a-half miles up in the air, and 1,000 miles out to sea.”

Heute mal wieder Deutsche Bahn: "Sternstunden der Beschilderung".

Irgendwo im Bild hat sich die DB Lounge versteckt, wer kann sie finden?

Hach ja, nichts lenkt so den Blick auf etwas wie blaue Schrift auf gelbem Grund auf einer unbeleuchteten Steele.

Synapse release candidate for you! 1.4.0rc1 is a whopper and contains a huge body of work to improve data privacy. Check it out if you would like to help us test, but check the upgrade notes first. github.com/matrix-org/synapse/

@rixx Thanks for sharing (again)! What an elaborate article that explains all terms used as they go. The form of the article alone is worth learning from.

Much appreciated!

My 'one weird trick' is to not say "Hello" when I answer a call that may be from a telemarketer. Instead, I wait for the caller to say "hello".

I think most of them have auto-dialling machines that only connect to a real marketer upon hearing an audio signal.

Works for me. After 5 seconds of silence from me, I know it's a junk call and just hang up. Real people calling would say a "Hello?" by then. 🙂

Heute mal wieder mit der Bahn:

* 5min spät
* anderes Gleis
* mein Platz wurde doppelt gebucht, also Düsseldorf bis Frankfurt mindestens stehe ich im Bordbistro

Im Vergleich gar nicht mal schlecht!

Maximal viel Fleisch essen und Zigaretten rauchen? Hashtag Neunziger oder was?

Der einzige Weg, diese Werbung noch dümmer und unzeitgemäßerer zu machen, wäre es, noch ein paar Bikini models einzubauen... 🤦‍♂️

Hi Fediverse

it seems to me that switching.social closed down it's services. All social media accounts are deleted and the site is currently offline.

Unfortunately, I have no clue what happened, I'm as surprised as you are. I already contacted the French, Italian and Turkish version of the site.

In case someone knows anything about what happened or has backups of one/multiple pages of the website, I would be very happy to get in touch with you.

"Verbindung wird 𝐦ö𝐠𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐰𝐞𝐢𝐬𝐞 nicht erreicht"???! 🤣

Den extra Stopp verarbeitet das Display im Zug leider nur teilweise. Die Fragezeichen in den Augen der nicht einheimischen Fahrgäste sind offensichtlich wenn drinnen steht Frankfurt Flughafen und draussen Limburg...
