my partner's taking this class on digital curation and it's the most boring shit i've ever heard

you might notice the squash flowers in one photo, but what you can't see is that literally all the blossoms are male!

very frustrating

Howdy folk! It's that time again, where I need folks help to steal digital textbooks:

Oliver, Gillian & Ross Harvey. Digital Curation 2nd edition. 2016.

Prom, Christopher J., ed. Digital Preservation Essentials. 2016.

Shallcross, Michael and Christopher J. Prom, eds. Appraisal and Acquisition Strategies. 2016.

Boosts encouraged, thanks!

Some photos from today's cloudy day around the garden.

Nothing spectacular so I won't bother explaining what's in each photo but feel free to ask questions.

not even the birds have been having much drama; it's late spring, almost everywhere food in the natural world is becoming plentiful. what else is there to fight over?

@ajroach42 these sound up your alley; if I get them want me to forward them along to you?

The first housemate I had when I moved to town, his family were long-time residents of the area, and he was named Cotten after the Cotten family, which was friendly with his.

I just realized I've never shared this bit of trivia.

Y'all might know the folk song "Freight Train" from the 1950s and 60s?

It's actually about the same train line that carries coal by my home!

The songwriter, Elizabeth Cotten, grew up about halfway between here and where I harvest cedar!

Only one case and zero deaths?

The unmistakably wise Julian Runner Bear informs the disease of Kristi Noem and her pompous, pasty-faced goons and monstrosities that, "No", they are _not_ allowed anywhere near protected territories.

"“Governor Noem miscalculates our level of dedication to protect our most vulnerable people from crony capitalism’s thrust to force us to open our economy as they choose to do,” Runner Bear wrote."

Smart move: that colonist governor is a proven vector of disease.

@dankwraith thanks this game is really scratching the itch. fourth character is alive for a little bit now!

@dankwraith I really want to play a video game to unwind but I don't even have the energy to write up what I want. preferably keyboard only, maybe like, rpg or roguelike? can run on linux?

It isn't that all I talk about is shutting down whiteness, it's that all most folk can speak to is within whiteness, and my only comment on that is "shut it down."

normal person: i would like to solve a problem. i will go read some books and see how other people have tackled similar or the same problem.

programmers: i would like to solve a problem. i will crack open an empty notebook and scribble propositional logic statements until i arrive at the Correct Answer
