The final question on Exam 1 in my physical science class is always "Name an actual living scientist. The scientist can't be fictional, dead, or your professor." (For 0 points)
I was glad to see that many of my students wrote their own names.
have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?
simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!
because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!
check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!

Right, I’ll tell you what we’re going to do. We’re going to organise a conference in Europe for people working on ethical alternatives to surveillance capitalism that isn’t sponsored by surveillance capitalism. For people who aren’t afraid to pick a side.
Because I’ve had it with this bullshit and we need non-bullshit alternatives.
Watch this space.

Good luck Victoria, Melbourne, my parents, and @twiddlekins
Putting my bins out in the standard #Australian configuration, with recycling and kangaroos separated from general waste.
#australia next few days going to be hot.
Take care of yourself: find a cool spot, hydrate.
Think of your pets.
Put water out for wild birds.
But also maybe consider how reliable the electricity network is in your area and whether it might be better to give your computers a controlled shutdown, at least make sure your backups are up to date and secure.
Welp, it’s time to close down the fediverse. I just found the coolest replacement.
I’ll see you guys on the other side!
