Lightning Bolt Is Guided To Ground Through Rocket Trail

The rocket is carrying a spool of copper wire that unwinds and keeps the rocket grounded to the earth to create the strike. They use this for studying lightning and testing itโ€™s effects on various materials.

In case you missed it - I've made a 28-minute tutorial introducing basic concepts of sound synthesis using 100% libre software. Someone even called it a masterclass :D

So.. My best mate has written and illustrated this awesome book! Think Tim burton/The Gruffalo rhyming styleโ€ฆ
Heโ€™s a local welsh guy and also using a local publishing company Candy Jar.
I love it! And I think any age will as well.
I have also been given the task of writing a stage show from the book! It has endless possibilities and Iโ€™m thinking to start off with something for the schools would be great and involve monster puppets! take a look!

@thatgeoguy @PINE64 it's like when you go to an animal shelter and see 3 kitties and you have to adopt all of the, so no kitty will be left behind

So I discussed my leaving #Linux post with @mike and @cooper before posting it. Itโ€™s fair to say that all three of us had concerns as to the reaction I might get.

Iโ€™ve had lots of comments, the vast majority of which have been along the lines of โ€œyou do youโ€ or โ€œIโ€™ve got a similar storyโ€.

Not just from Fosstodon, but many other instances too. Donโ€™t ever change, #Mastodon. Youโ€™re awesome.

Perhaps there is no perfect way to convey how absurdly obscene it is that a single person can "have" over a hundred billion dollars.

But "You Are Jeff Bezos" is damn close:

Also, perhaps there is no perfect way to satirize #DonaldTrump.

My little parody of the aforementioned game is definitely not even close:

@kmic @timorl Peter Sunde is trying to become a registrar, but ICANN pulled a fast one on him:

I'd say supporting njal.la might be a good way to help him find a way to become a registrar eventually.

something I sometimes struggle to explain to some of the elder millenials in my life is that the cost of entry into everything gone up AND everything's been hollowed out. Education is more difficult to obtain AND the quality of it has gone down. Renting is more expensive and difficult to get approved for AND the houses are more neglected.
