The best photo of a #takahē I've ever seen.
(The big blue ball. That one.)
(seen on Bluesky but I couldn't find the post linking to it when I scrolled back looking for it.)
Astronomers have observed the exoplanet Beta Pictoris b almost long enough to catch a full orbit!
In this new video, the planet (the blue dot) orbits around its host star. The bright star is blocked by a coronagraph (the black disk) so we can see the faint light from the planet.
It was made by interpolating between 30 frames of data taken over 17 years from the Gemini Planet Imager, VLT/NACO, and VLT/SPHERE.

I love the expression on this warning sign on a laundromat washing machine.

as chrome gets older and more exposed to the elements it will be eventually partially composed of rust
not that it matters to me, a firefox user
thinking about how "well, the wayback machine has it archived" shouldn't have to be the best possible end result for websites that are a vast trove of collective knowledge when corporate interests take them under
Hmm, Takahe and Akkoma think they're following each other, but I don't see any of my Akkoma posts here.

Update: Here’s another section of the fence that I don’t think I’d want to lean on!

If you're sad about Lance Reddick, his widow asked for people to donate to MOMcares, a Baltimore-based charity that provides prenatal and postpartum care to under-supported Black women who've been through the NICU wringer. It helps unborn babies, it helps Black maternal mortality rates, it should appeal to pretty much everyone. Go! www.momcares.org
Are you a #Fediverse developer?
There's a new initiative by @gabek (the lead developer of the Fediverse livestreaming platform @owncast) called FediDocs. It aims to provide an easy-to-find set of documentation for how to federate with a Fedi platform, in order to promote better federation between platforms.
