An outstanding comic looking at what came *before* Stonewall, including Cooper's Do-Nuts in LA, 1959; Dewey's in Philadelphia, 1965; and Gene Compton's Cafeteria in San Francisco, 1966.

Lab skills: 1/2-night beginners in

Heya! I'm helping out with a community lab called Biotech without Borders. Part of this help will be teaching adult classes there to further the mission to "enable the -on of by communities, groups and countries hitherto underrepresented in the landscape"

Holy crap y'all Streisand is an impressive piece of #FLOSS. github.com/StreisandEffect/str - If you're running Linux or Mac and can follow instructions *at all* then you can have a VPN set up in 20 minutes that you own and control, using any #cloud provider you like. Great for #privacy and also for evading annoying restrictions like JetBlue blocking everything other than ports 80/443 :) (Gonna tell me I can't SSH? Really? I think not :)

Quit using Mendeley people!

They started encrypting your database so you cannot easily move it over to other tools any more.

See:
zotero.org/support/kb/mendeley

That link also helps you saving your data before it's too late.

(Elsevier are a bunch of crooks, blocking interoperability one-way and not the other. Almost as bad as Google blocking uBlock for your safety...)

I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

I'm looking for a tame biochemist who I can bother with silly molecular physics questions about chlorophyll and excited states and charge separation and things.

Can anyone help me out?

@quokka I always thought your username had a familiar ring to and after an animalogic video I think I know why! What a cute mammal to align yourself with.
