I bought this cheese from Aldi based solely on the name. It's very tasty. Very much like a slightly softer Romano or Piave.

Today I ran into a website for sharing jobs between techies who are also furries."These are regular jobs with nothing particularly furry about then, but the first person you talk to when interviewing is a furry."

@ashfurrow Nevermind, I figured it out. It was the size of the image. 🤦

@ashfurrow I'm unable to upload a new header photo. I keep getting a 400 bad request error page. I've tried a couple of different photos and I'm not sure what could be the issue.

The cat sneezed.

Healers were summoned. The cat sneezed more.

The awful truth was realized; it was allergic to humans.

The queen wept, for she had grown fond of the fussy creature.

But for the sake and comfort of her beloved pet, she gave it to a Noble Elven family, who promised to regularly send sketches, paintings, poems and tales.

The cat didn't really notice, it just wanted food, chin-scritches and a warm place to sleep.

Rebooting in an hour to apply some security patches. Expect a minute of downtime.

was originally intended to be an Earth Orbit mission with the Lunar Module. Since the LM wasn't ready yet, Apollo 8 was changed to a circumlunar mission in August 1968. The first LM flight would be on in March 1969.

The 50th anniversary of Apollo 8, the first time that humans left the confines of Earth and orbited the Moon, begins in about a week. #1968

In the 1960s a person could start as a cleaner in IBM and work all their way up to become a lead technician in their most prestigious product lines (over many years, of course). This kind of employment relationship doesn’t exist anymore.

I think the only solution to this will be banning long-term outsourcing.

Outsourcing can be a great solution to short term employment needs. Imagine hiring thousands of people for a short term event like a conference. It certainly makes to outsource in this case.

But if you are hiring people to work shoulder to shoulder to your other employees under the same roof, often doing the same job? Then it just becomes an excuse to treat people like trash.

So just followed some links and discovered that the person who started the first tumblelog (which is what inspired david karp to start tumblr) is trans and still tumblelogging on their own website chneukirchen.org/trivium which is awesome and also I was already following them via RSS and I didn't even know.

This may be a helpful hint...

If you are tooting about an event or an incident, consider the following question: Will someone on the opposite side of the planet have enough geographical information from the toot to understand and take action?

There are important things going on everyday, in all parts of the world, and Mastodon can help get the word out. But it really helps to know the whole who, what, where, when and why.
