Pinned toot

Now that I'm reading so many I realised that I never introduced myself here!

I'm a researcher in applied mechanics, blogger and home baker. I'm obsessed with sourdough bread and free software and paint and knit whenever I can.

My objective for 2018 is learning to play the mandolin :D

You can now challenge someone to game of #chess over toots! castling.club/ 💪

It's actually a standalone server in the #fediverse, implementing #activitypub all by itself. 😃

Make yourself a healthy meal. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive, just tasty.

What are the #opensource & #openscience communities in this place like? ☺️

I am exhausted by some of the so-called open people in my field being hostile to my ideas — although the people who work with software are way more positive thankfully!

I feel really strongly about how science needs to dump closed source and bad programming habits, like Matlab. Often this blog post gets exposure that's positive but now it's being treated a bit negatively.

What do you all think?

We now have a custom emoji for the superiour siege weapon: :trebuchet:

Y la hija que huye de casa,
el conductor del autobús en el piquete,
el veterano que dejó atrás la medalla, pero que se aferra a su fusil,
el chico salvado del suicidio por el amor de sus amigos,
la criada que debe someterse a los que ni siquiera pueden cocinar por sí mis-
mos, la caminata de la inmigrante a través del desierto para encontrar a su fami-lia al otro lado, el chaval en su camino a la cárcel porque quemó un centro comercial que
estaban construyendo sobre sus sueños de infancia, el vecino que limpia de jeringas el solar, con la esperanza de que alguien lo convierta en un jardín, el autoestopista en la carretera,
el exuniversitario, que renunció a su carrera, al seguro de salud y a veces
incluso a la comida, para poder escribir poesía revolucionaria para el mundo,
tal vez todos podemos sentirlo:
nuestros jefes y torturadores tienen miedo de lo que harían sin nosotros,
y su amenaza es una promesa:
los mejores momentos de nuestras vidas son ya anarquía.

Mastodon is supposed to be a safer space, right, so here I go again:

I see a lot of people on Left Twitter use words that have their root in ableism.

Terms like: dumb, stupid, idiot, lame, crazy, etc. all originally referred to disabled people. They were used to mock and dehumanise us.

I would appreciate a lot if ppl could examine their language & not use words that originated as terms for disabled people.

Hola @danibishop ! Bienvenido al Fediverso 🙂

I think my favorite thing about the fediverse is that it actually never feels like I'm screaming into a void. It feels like I'm thinking out loud to a group of strangers who, despite not knowing me, are supportive and interested in what I have to say.

Growing my own vegetables is the best thing ever! I'm always excited of the evolution of the plants.

Much more fun than engineering 😂

I also have a pumpkin growing at 1,5m high so maybe engineering comes on handy.

I'll keep you updated!

We should start a new #geek game in the #fediverse: one toot (or more, as replies) to propose a use case for #BlockChain, everybody boost until one other user reply with a better solution in term of #energy consumption and safety.

It could be a great way to help the planet by reducing this total waste of energy!

We could mark the last toot of the use case as #BlockUseCase so that people can see if it has been debunked.

If the use case is too vague we mark it as #BlockFantasy to stop boosts.

@ondiz Después del aerobic, pilates etc llega el "housing"

Tabla de ejercicios:
- Refuerza brazos y pectorales limpiando cristales
- Tonifica el tronco barriendo y fregando el suelo
- Fortalece piernas y glúteos haciendo el baño

Just cleaned the house and wow it feels like huge workout! I should give it a cool name and charge people to do it for me.

If you have ideas we can go 50-50.

I had a very motivating discussion at lunch today with a grad school colleague and a postdoc, about how we never feel like we're being productive, but then suddenly we realize we've written the chapter/submitted the paper/conducted the experiment somewhere in between all the procrastination.

We could make an open-access peer review journal without much trouble.
Host everything using DAT or torrents to keep down hosting costs.
Maybe actually offer help with copy editing and whatnot. Focus on civil society as much as the pure academic part of things.

I like this idea.
