@Cambridgeport90 @queenslight16 Android, yeah. I’m actually doing most of my uploads on my desktop these days, though I do visit it on my phone (though the website as a PWA). Actually being *able* to use Pixelfed on my desktop along with my phone is a plus over Instagram, too.

Nervous Squirrel

A light brown squirrel on a tree branch, looking at the camera and waving its tail so fast it's motion blurred.

I heard chattering and slowly walked toward this tree in a city park. Once I got to it, I stopped, and slowly looked around until I spotted the #squirrel up in the branches, just looking at me and waving its tail very rapidly. I took two photos, then walked away.

Huh, Verizon has sold Yahoo and AOL. For half of what they paid for them…

Huh, Verizon has sold Yahoo and AOL.

Verizon sells AOL and Yahoo for about half of what it paid

For half of what they paid for them. 🤦‍♂️

To a private equity firm. 😬

Flickr and Tumblr REALLY lucked out that Verizon put in the effort to look for a photo-sharing company and a blogging company to sell them to instead of just muddling along with no idea what to do with them until they just wanted to unload them.

Two crows chased a squirrel across the lawn at a park…

Two crows chased a squirrel across the lawn at a park, one of them swooping down and possibly making contact with its claws (I couldn't quite tell) until it ran up this tree.Then they perched on a nearby fence and waited. When it tried to run down the trunk, they flew at it again and it went back up. One crow perched on another branch of the tree and waited, while the other flew off.

Interesting article on going beyond nature conservation and actively helping species adapt

Interesting article on going beyond nature conservation and actively helping species adapt to introduced predators, changing climate, diseases, etc.

I’d read about the chestnut tree projects a couple of years ago, but the others are new to me.

How Far Should Humans Go to Help Species Adapt?

An Australian project to help threatened marsupials avoid predatory cats is one of a host of ‘assisted evolution’ efforts.

Aha, that’s why several completely unrelated apps have started crashing on launch: a buggy update to WebView

Android apps are crashing for some, but Google is working on a fix

Oddly enough: Duolingo, Target and WordPress. I was able to get Target & Duolingo to launch once by wiping the local storage and signing back in, but once they unloaded they started crashing again.
