Q: London travel advice
I gave my son a trip to #London on his birthday. It's time to fulfill that promise.
Is there some special time we should go there this summer? Suggestions on accomodation and things like that?
I don't even know what questions to ask, I'm a beginner when it comes to travel. I'm on a rather strict budget and I'm no stranger to adventures.
Request for help (librarians especially!!); Boosts++
I've got a request from a friend on another instance for help looking for scholarly resources about audience engagement with the performing arts, specifically marching bands, if possible
Would there be a librarian available to point us in the right direction?

I need help with quantitative research “decoding.” My background is *not* psych but my masters degree (masters of Family Therapy) requires the current research methods course.
I’m watching some YouTube vids on concepts such as Kappa coefficients but does anyone have other sources for a crash course? I took stats in undergrad... but that was over 20 years ago.
Thanks, friends -
Angelika Kratzer is giving a lecture series at UCL:
one name, different spellings in citations
Europeans! Do you have a 'best practice' for citing authors whose names are spelled differently on the title pages of different works? This is common with researchers from Scandinavia, Russia(-aev, -ayev, -aiev), Germany (ß vs. ss, ue vs. ü), or the Arab world ... I feel like I should normalize the spellings #citationPractices
I wanted to use the tikz filter with tikz-qtree.sty trees inside figure environments. This filter seems to work:
Mastodon admin help request; Boosts++
I'm periodically having people email me to say that confirmation emails aren't going through
Does anyone have good ideas on how to diagnose / fix this sort of problem?
It has mostly been people with Hotmail / Outlook addresses
(But then I'm pretty sure that we've had successful signups from those domains too, so I'm not sure)
tech request: online collaborative note-taking (etherpad alternatives?)
I have written a short post with the details of my setup:
let me know if it need clarification or improvement! 😄
I'm looking for literature (articles, blog posts, books) that covers "succession planning" for IT/sysadmin in activist groups. Like, for a volunteer group, what happens if your IT person just leaves? What are best practices so that the group isn't locked out of their web hosting etc (simply through lack of information rather than malice on the previous IT person's fault)
