Je suis à la recherche d'un bébé requin IKEA Blåhaj, alias le Smolhaj. 55cm, discontinué en 2020 par Ikea, et toujours insaisissable depuis.

Vous en avez un en trop dont vous êtes prêt à vous séparer ? Discutons-en !
Je cherche quelqu'un en France, en Espagne, aux Pays-Bas et en Allemagne.
Merci !

I am in search of an IKEA baby shark Blåhaj, aka the Smolhaj. 55cm, discontinued in 2020 by Ikea, and ever elusive since then.

Do you have an extra one you're willing to part with? Let's discuss!
Looking for someone in France, Spain, the Netherlands, and Germany.

I am hoping to network and connect with other professional and amateur digitization and archivist technicians, to aid in a project, and to basically have an avenue or group to discuss related topics!

If you are a tech or , know someone in those fields interested in networking or chatting about their work, or are a self-proclaimed or amateur with experience, please feel free to reach out here on Mastodon , or by email: contact [at] nabein {dot} me

fake foot 

Can anyone in communities help ID this installation I saw at the Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art? It's a giant yellow foot most likely filled with some kind of dense packing material. I honestly hated this piece, because I feel it's so obnoxious, but I really want to know who's behind it.


Warum Hitzewellen dramatisch sind? Weil sie unter anderem die Böden austrocknen und diese dann nicht mehr in der Lage sind, Wasser aufzunehmen.

Ein kurzer Schauer bringt dann nichts, ein Extremregen führt zur Flut.

Das Experiment der zeigts.


Je l’ai branché à une télé
Il y a une image et elle est bonne !
En plus, la HiFi est détectée et lue !!!

Pas mal pour du matos de 1984 avec juste l’alim de refaite

Je viens de remplacer la puce douteuse du magnétoscope JVC HR-D725S et les boutons de contrôle en façade fonctionnent désormais correctement ! \o/

A while back I saw someone venting about Google (in its youtube aspect) having screwed up the channel they used to help sell their music.

I don't know what sort of flak they got along the lines of "this is why you shouldn't be using Google" but I think the amount was non-zero.

And, legit, this person wasn't having any of it: They know what has worked for them. No one needed me mouthing off then about the acute situation, so I kept my counsel.

Saw a bit of a counterpoint to this though over the last few days that reminded me to mention something that might be useful in that situation.

(feeling like this will be a little thread, so first post "public" the rest "unlisted")

For anyone that followed expecting tech/archive stuff, please sit tight. Travel takes up most of my energy and time right now, and summer heat makes it hard to work sometimes. I have a loooooot of stuff I intend to write, share, and publish. Lots of little projects too when I get home.

As a person who is hard of hearing, I fucking hate when TV shows/movies don't balance their goddamn audio. Like if I have to really crank it up to hear most of the show but then during action scenes it's ear shattering at that exact same volume, You Did A Bad Job at making your show accessible. What the fuck is the reasoning behind this decision. No I get it, you want to make the action POP, but you can do that without making it a fucking tense drag for hard of hearing people to watch your goddamn show

This brought to you by me checking out moon knight and nearly fucking scrambling for cover at the first gunshot cause it was so much louder compared to the rest of the show that it sounded like it was right outside my fucking apartment

Someone on fedi called advertising "pollution" and that's a perfect descriptor.

Maybe what’s needed for websites and web apps is a kind of Prepper Web Dev? Code that assumes that:

The network is unreliable
Power is expensive
Devices are old
Data centres can be shut off by a heatwave or disaster
All your server data can be subpoenaed by fascists

Happy #cakeday #OpenStreetMap folks!

9th August is celebrated by awesome communities around the world as the official anniversary [0] of OSM, that being the date the domain name was registered.

We're now 18 years old! #OpenStreetMap18

Congratulations, and thank you to all the folks who map it forward, for OpenStreetMap, and Free geodata.

What do people consider 'forever' file formats. I.E file types that are open source and won't become obsolete quickly and can run on minimalist computers. I know that lots of people consider txt's to be pretty good for everything plain text, but what about odt and odf for word processing and spread sheets? Is ogg, flac or acc better than mp3 for music and audiobooks? Giff for images?

I'm a sci-fi writer and want to know what 'old tech' might still be useful in the future.

Thanks Mastodon!

Just received a gift: a Intuos Pro Large from Wacom. They plan to reuse on their blog some of my illustrations/tutorials (eg. on tablet ergonomics). They wanted to thanks me because all my content was already available for free on my blog under Creative Commons CC-By ☺️ So cool!

A very good writeup on a personally equally earth shattering revelation about MoFi, a vinyl record production conpany.

Seems post-bankruptcy, one should always have a bit of suspition in a company...
