Any "icon creators" here? A new FOSS app will hit @fdroidorg soon, but the author is no "graphical guy" and thus needs your help for a good icon.

So: Icon designers, please join in – everyone else is welcome to boost, as usual 😃

I'm working on becoming better in making nigiri. Slowly I'm getting better when it comes to the looks, they look quite nice in the photo don't they? I still have problems with the rice seasoning, the rice becomes less sticky once I season it with rice vinegar which changes the consistency. Also the fish I use is the cheap frozen salmon which is chewy and kind of tasteless, but that's just for now when I'm training to cut it the right way, I will use fresh one...

Are you the kind of person who wants to discuss, or at least vent about, the move toward authoritarianism in the world today? Do you think pseudoscience is a huge problem? Do you want to talk about the kind of woo people like Gwyneth Paltro pushes on gullible people? Do you think there's way too much sexist/racist/*phobic bro bullshit in skepticism?

Me, right now:
$ sudo dnf update
sudo: dnf: command not found
(right, I'm on the desktop)
$ sudo yum update
sudo: yum: command not found
(ubuntu, you moron!)

I need a laptop that is good enough as a desktop replacement, but lightweight.

I hear a lot "But I am never influenced by ads, all the consumption choices I make are mine". Flash news: we all get influenced at some level. It's called biases.
@hellgy@twitter.com and I created 52 UX Cards to help you discover some of those cognitive biases stephaniewalter.design/blog/52

I'm reading the Lord of the rings to my boys and one had a great idea which essentially boils down to send a corona-infected mouse to Sauron :)

Mmm delightful article on home~~cooking~~coding - or programing just enough to serve yourself and your family, but not making it a career:

Yep, I'll have to learn a lot more. I just got a bit more serious about the whole thing a few years ago, and in terms of Scotch, I have very little experience as to what works.

I think all expats bloody hate when websites think you're speaking language x and switch from english just because your IP is in X. I might just set up my vpn thing to always connect from like whatever country has population of 2 and surely no locally translated version.

Well. I've just learned that if I water down a bit, I like it much better. I mean, I used to take "two-three drops" completely literally. Now I figured that you don't have to exactly drown it, but more then literally just 2 drops is needed, maybe like a spoonful or two.

Time to spend 100s again to re-taste all the things I have so far.
