DeSantis signs bill requiring survey of Florida students, professors on their political views

Colleges could lose funding if survey of "ideas and perspectives" fails to satisfy state's GOP-run legislature

YIKES. YIKES YIKES YIKES.

@ianbetteridge @glynmoody Sounds like things are going swimmingly in Downing Street.

@tom30519 More thermal blanket snippets? I guess when the stage crashed it shredded that stuff into a thousand bits. And the wind is clearly strong enough to pepper the landscape with it.

This does not look like the edge of a rock.

But in the past few years, a literal army of concerned persons have done the amazing job of retrieving, scanning, and uploading them to the Archive. I'm slowly consolidating and getting subcollections going to put these thousands of issues somewhere coherent.

If you had asked me a few years ago something computer history related that I was worried would disappear into the loam of the seas of time, it was user group floppy disks and newsletters. Such a small audience for each one, such unlikeliness they'd be found AND scanned.

With our evening fog overhead and yesterday’s fog stuck beyond the Oakland Hills across the bay, the Belt of Venus is rising in pink hues as the sun sets out over the Pacific.

Every evening during summer this panorama unfolds, never the same and always equally dramatic.

For the past three years I've been searching for a man named Mitsutaka Uchikoshi.

In 2006, he was found on the side of a Japanese mountain after missing for 25 days. His doctors believe he may have entered a hibernation-like state.

The #science isn't all that clear... so I wanted to find him and understand how this might be possible. This is the story of my search:

Since her stomach is getting better I can even give her a little treat after she takes her medicine, which is helping morale a lot <3

Here is a quick painting about this beautiful place:

Twenty-five years ago today, a true pioneer touched down. Sojourner proved we could drive on Mars; each rover since has done true overland exploration. I’m the fifth in this line, collecting samples that could one day return to Earth and rewrite history. Onward.

That’s really much better than I thought it would be. More obscure artists work better than famous ones, presumably because training data contains less crap like mugs and t-shirts.

As I've amassed a varied stockpile of expired film (35mm and 120 ranging from the 1970s to the late 2010s) I'm going to try my very best to use one a week (roughly) in one of the varied vintage film cameras I've also stockpiled over the years. Some will be write offs, some will be be unusual, most will be dreadful, some (hopefully) will be acceptable. Maybe one or two will actually be good. Whichever way, I'm hoping they'll all be good fun. Starting with my Fed 50 as seen below... #ishootfilm
