We as operators of also wanted to set a sign for the world wide climate strike and added a custom mastodon art to our instance. The mastodon told us that they know quite well the consequences of climate change. So we gave them a sign to demonstrate together with us :) #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike

If you want to add it to your instance too, you could find the SVG here:

So, I'll admit I have a spine label problem. But super excited to have switched to Merriweather Sans for our new spine font. Just look at those digits POP on the cookbook label!

I think people should talk more about the warming of the cockles of their hearts. What a great turn of phrase in need of reviving. That would warm the cockles of my heart.

Oh how I wish that / / would work over bluetooth connections! Would love to have it at work. Being able to share clipboards between phone and computer is so handy for cases like 2FA etc.

The Maximilian sunflowers are finally blooming at home. They have this great earthy vanilla-ish scent that so reminds me of something. I wish I could remember what it was.

Just thinking about how when I was little I'd occasionally get brief spurts of tinnitus and how badly I hoped during those moments that the "tomorrow people" were trying to contact me.

friends, what would be the best way to digitize this film? A patron donated these slides made by her father. It appears that he's taken film and taped it in a cardboard slide holder (with text on it that has nothing to do with the actual film) and taped glass squares on either side of it. I'm not sure if I should take them out of the glass or not. If I do, is there a better way I can store the film squares? Thanks much!!! @ashley @tvc15 @dsalo

after all these years Spotify's solution to disambiguating artist names is still simply "we don't, and we won't" and you gotta admit it's certainly one of the ways they could have chosen to deal with the problem!

Just replaced the blower resistor in my 2003 Malibu. And when the guy in YouTube said that "if you have any mobility issues you should leave this one to the professionals" he definitely was not kidding.

Almost midnight. Realized about 30 minutes ago I forgot to take melatonin. I suppose I should get up and get it.

I have to say. I love spine labels. I wonder if I could get an MFA in spine label design? If I ever win the lottery I am going to get a bat cave and disappear for several years while I research fonts and such.

Really love our spine label icon for our new collection. Traced it in and made an out of it.
