Possibly just made the best dhal of my life. Possibly it was the biryani-inspired rice I made with it 😆

I have drawn some terrible pictures and will post them soon :ohno:

covid, NSW 

FINALLY they managed to write a list of essential businesses. Great work NSW, only a month late.

I just read something by a north American leftist referring to "Irish potatoes" as distinct from sweet potatoes and wow colonialism really embeds itself huh.

I’ve received dozens of these over the last few years but it just occurred to me how poorly thought through the myGov email subjects are.

Where else would a new message be? What else would be in my “inbox”?

Computer Science towards sustainable permacomputing
"Unrealistic" "People wont want that" "Too many assumptions about the future"

Computer Science which assumes everyone lives in VR in the future
"Visionary" "Futuristic"

Camp cooking tip: wash your mug before making a cup-a-soup if you previously had a Berocca in it.

I think I'll invest in a second mug for my next trip. Why not live it up?

covid, nsw 

Half of today's 98 NSW cases were infectious in community? Going to be a long winter.

Molly is concerned that you are doom scrolling too much during lockdown.

Covid, Vic, lockdown 

It’s Friday and everything will be closed for the five days.

Easter in July sucks.

FWIW I think the part in this article about it being "risky" is complete bunkum, especially re "junior" academics.The IF system gives absolutely no job security to academics and incentivises all of the absolute worst things about universities including the shitty conditions in labs and the tsunami of pointless micro-focussed papers.

Utrecht University is formally abandoning Impact Factor for hiring and promotion of academic staff.

any #greek speakers here? i've been asked to make a 3x5 pixel art font for greek characters, and i would like to know how to make some of these characters more distinct/readable if possible.

covid19 

Hope nobody got covid at the big party at our local pub last night before lockdown started. Muppets.

The most delicious and also most regretful part of tonight's dinner was the dish consisting of vegetable oil and salt, fried with the absolute minimum of wheat flour required to hold everything together.
