Hi! Switched Instances, so I guess I should introduce myself again.

I'm a genderqueer software tester and parent from Germany and I am into and more.

In my spare time I try to be creative (sewing, drawing, that kind of stuff), but it depends largely on my mental health.

I love talking to/meet new people, but I have a hard time making the first move.

I'm a bit less annoyed since one of them had a small but warm 'dude, I like you, but you can be a self centered asshole' talk with the one complaining a lot

Why am I so annoyed by this group next to us?
Is it just because they tend to talk shit about things they don't seem to understand and therefore it must be ridiculed by them? Like not actually big problematic talk, just... So much inside their own reality as default and unable to think outside those box, that it kind of amazes me. They remind me of university

\o/ we have a seat, so everything is good

I'll be traveling 6h with child without reservation on Eastern... wish me luck.. :/

Amazons digitaler Sprachassistent #Alexa hört ständig mit und Konversationen mit dem Gerät werden als Audio- und Textdateien unbegrenzt gespeichert......denn das #Innenministerium möchte, dass Ermittler Alexa künftig für ihre Arbeit nutzen können. Deutsche Nachrichtendienste können schon heute... auf Alexa-Abhörmaterial zugreifen. Gleiches gilt naturlich auch für Apples #Siri und Googles #OKGoogle #BND #MAD #Verfassungsschutz #abhören

Da will ich ganz brav noch ein ticket für diese eine Haltestelle aus Wien raus kaufen, steh 20 min an wegen Touris und dann will der Automat meine Karte nicht.
Nochmal stell ich mich jetzt nicht beim andren Automaten an -_-

I'm late on this, but sharing in case others have also not heard: Emily Dickinson was totes a lesbian, and the proof was censored out of her letters by her lover's husband's mistress. spectrographic technology allowed the censored parts to be revealed! and there's a movie out about it now.

Ich sitz im falschen Talk (also stelle nach 5 min fest dass es mich nicht interessiert) aber gehen fühlt sich so unhöflich an, vor allem weil vortragende Person aufgeregt erscheint

HTML5 ping tracking – Firefox :firefox: will enable it by default:

– HTML5 ping attributes can be used to track people if they click a link (<a href=… ping=…>) by sending POST requests to an arbitrary amount of hosts
– tracking is possible without any JavaScript, or Cookies
– Steve Gibson talked about it in Security Now 709:
– ping is enabled in Chrome, Opera, Edge, Safari by default

#html5 #ping #tracking #firefox #mozilla

So ohne Kind ist das mit den talks gleich viel einfacher

Inzwischen übrigens nicht mehr^^

For today's linguistic lesson, here's a refreshingly positive take on new ways language is using. (I'm not sure about the name "kidspeak" but I guess we can't have everything.)

And I learned that apparently "yeet" actually has a meaning and isn't just a noise people put in memes and stuff, which is the only way I'd seen it used so far. ;)

I just heard someone say this and it's hard to disagree: unicorns are much more plausible that giraffes

I love this video on why some Asian people swap r's and l's in English.

Some takeaways:

* They don't do it like in racist American movies

* English l and r are really weird sounds that can be hard to make and hear. We just don't notice that because we're used to them

* Native English speakers are at least as bad at hearing tones in languages like Chinese that use them. Tones sound the same to us for the same reasons r and l sound the same to others

@rhonda bist du noch so auf der eh? Würde gerne Hallo sagen :)

Meh, zumindest die Toiletten direkt hier am Eingang sind binär getrennt.

Vll doch etwas weniger Flora Mate
