School children performing gender 

Observing in the classroom. Fascinating how school children perform gender in the classroom.

Masculinity: back row, black hoodie, bring neither pencil nor books to lessons, talk loudly at any time, comment on everything that happens in the classroom, get up and walk around if you get the chance.

Femininity: front row but not in the middle, light coloured clothes, listen to teacher, talk quiet, comment things that happens with whispers to the person next to you.

I think now is a nice time to upgrade to a new version of mastodon. Will be down for a little while soonish.

#Gitea is joining the fediverse 🎉 We can now announce we've been accepted into the #NLnet funding round that we applied to.

Thank you to @NGIZero @dachary @forgefriends and so many others for getting us to this point.

We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

I feel bad for maintainers of #log4j now that their hard volunteer work is widely ridiculed for serious #security flaws that were found.

This while every corporate club and your grandma used it in their million $$ projects without anyone thinking of doing a security scan or otherwise contributing to the project with time or funds.

A lessons-learned for the corporates:

"Nurture before you milk!"

And keep on nurturing. For god sake, can't you do anything sustainably?

The unicorn stood in the stream, staring contemplatively at the small fish nibbling at her crystalline hooves.

"You're lucky I'm not hungry," she thought, "Not for fish, anyway."

She dipped her head to drink, detecting the sound of creaking wood and straining sinew. She remained still, a pretty target.

Within a moment, her tail whipped up, knocking the loosed arrow out of the air, and she leapt toward the poacher - dinner had come to her.
