@geordie I took this tour and heard the same story!

I remember thinking the smell was not as delicious as one might expect.

Open call for obsolete sounds! This project is really fascinating. They're requesting recordings of sounds from our environment, old tech, etc. that are no longer commonplace and then those will be reimagined by sound artists "to draw attention to the world’s disappearing soundscapes." https://citiesandmemory.com/2022/05/open-call-your-field-recordings-of-obsolete-sounds-wanted/

question for my Library Frens 

@saera this is definitely a question for @alissa but AIUI fundamentally you're paying for the DDC IP, rather than the tool per se.

@mike I did that once when they were desperate but it kinda freaked me out TBH

@platypus @DonnaLanclos the mad cow rule just changed about a week ago here, so great.

@mattcen yeah it’s dumb and illogical. At least the TGA has finally removed the ban on people who were in the UK during Mad Cow.

@platypus Our blood service is very good at letting you know. They also have this thing they started doing a year or so ago where you get a text message about a week later: “Hugh, your donation is being used right now at St Vincent’s Hospital” Or whatever. Whether they are actually tracking my particular blood is kind of irrelevant- it feels nice!

Apparently yesterday was my 30th blood donation! Hooray!

That seems surprising because you basically can only do 4 a year and I’ve definitely skipped a lot of appointments.

@mike I still think most people didn’t understand Starship Troopers and arguably fewer would now. @daedalus
