Then they wouldn't be able to adjust the number after they see what kind of car you drive.

My process for selecting a journal for a paper these days centers primarily around which one will require jumping through the fewest formatting hoops.

politics, COVID, newspaper link 

@Cyborgneticz Yes, I know things are not great a lot of places. Frustrating!

politics, COVID, newspaper link 

The WI legislature is making moves to prevent all University of Wisconsin campuses from requiring vaccines, COVID testing, or masks. This state really sucks.


For anyone in the Minnesota or Western Wisconsin area, the National Weather Service-Twin Cities updates are cross-posted to @nwstwincities via .

A figure number limit in a journal is stupid.

So disappointed that my county's vaccination rate is still only 38%.

Ugh, my university just told us that they are removing our administrator access to our work computers. This is going to make everything more tedious.

I've looked at MXroute before but I've never been able to figure out a domain that I wanted to use for email.

complaining about Mastodon 

One of my big frustrations with Mastodon is the inability to post to a hashtag without the post displaying on the local timeline. So being on an instance that has a local "theme" such as this one, it isn't possible to participate in off-topic hashtags.

@mpjgregoire I just went through and deleted most of the feeds, but many of them were photography blogs, which I assume may have moved to Instagram if they are still active. Several other dead sites and blogs that haven't been updated in 5-9 years.
