I am on the line of buying an Icom IC-705 right now. I was hyped when they showcased it and was sure it would be an answer to all the problems amateur's have in their mind for a decade. Especially digital modes. Now my desire for it ignited again. Yaesu lives in their cave and does not ever deliver. Any user of IC-705 here?

I am back baby! I started doing 's back in 2014 for . After a long break, I made a new pack for my emergency bag. 5 day worth of meal with fruits, desert and drinks for 2666 Gr. A reduction of ~2900Gr in total! All labeled and ready to be packed and hopefully only will be eaten in good times.🏕️

amateurs of fediverse, gather! I will finally have a HF digital mode radio and will go full portable with it. I need a good antenna suggestion. Easy to build and multiband. Any suggestions?

The idea of "protestware" or that "software isn't supposed to have an opinion" or that open source is supposed to be somehow neutral, merely "getting the job done".

This was never true, even in the olden days. Even back then, there were protest aspects to software and things were written with an agenda. PGP had an agenda. p2p software in the 2000s had an agenda which even turned into a political party. Creative Commons had an agenda. Cryptocurrency definitely came with an agenda explicitly embedded in the code.

Strawberries! Many of them. Dry 'em stick 'em in a jar.

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?

Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩

I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

#Introduction Hi everyone, I am Utku, next fall I will start my Ph.D. at UMD Ling, I am currently an MA student at Bogazici University. My research mainly deals with processing subject-verb dependency and tackles phenomena like case syncretism, form heuristics, and response bias. I also work on the formation of treebanks on Turkish and minority languages in Asia Minor. I try to insert morphology in everything I do. Here's my website: utkuturk.com/

Has anyone noticed Stallman referred the term "open source" as a viable way to describe free software at the beginning of his recent speech? Am I the only one who shocked by this?

One of my "favorite" facts about the Manhattan Project is that the film company Kodak was able to figure out that there were nuclear tests happening because the fallout left telltale effects on their film... 4000 miles away on New York.

The scientists at Kodak just sort of figured it out that these what they thought were purely theoretical weapons were being used while troubleshooting issues with film production. They went to the government like "Hey, are you all testing Nuclear bombs? Because we think /someone/ is testing nuclear bombs"

Which must have freaked the absolute shit out of whoever the first person in the government who knew about the Manhattan Project when they got this message.

does #pixelfed #11.2 admin settings work or does it require dev version (or just work in progress?)

(also anyone running #yunohost tried updating to the dev version? - I am a bit scared of messing up the whole server. xD)

Uzun zamandır yazmak istediğim bir konuyu sonunda yayınladım. Özellikle Person of Interest'i tekrar izleyince düşünce tekrar canlandı. Toplumsal gürültü ve buna bireysel ihtiyacı biraz yüzeysel sekilde tartıştim.

> You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day.


@neauoire and Rekka gave a great presentation in Libreplanet2022. I sadly was not able to watch it live. Thanks for sharing!
