I don't think I've seen this variety of succulent flowering before. It looks like an overturned Ferroseed or the plant version of the Omnidroid from The Incredibles.
@Cambridgeport90 @queenslight16 Instagram keeps removing capabilities from their website. It’s really annoying!
@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.
@Cambridgeport90 @queenslight16 Thanks! And yes, Pixelfed does support both captions and image descriptions, though the description field is a lot shorter.
New article series by @eff on the “Public Interest Internet” (as compared to the corporatized side of the internet) https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2021/05/introducing-public-interest-internet
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. 🤦♂️
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, 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 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.
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
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.
Wow. Flying a drone over an erupting volcano.
