A group of female graziers from outback Queensland who hunt fossils in their downtime have uncovered the remains of a 100m-year-old creature that palaeontologists are likening to the Rosetta Stone for its potential to unlock the discovery of several new species of prehistoric marine giant. #fossils #paleontology #palaeontology #science #Australia #RockChicks #elasmosaur

Good Things Festival: Was great, tho now tired! A few bands plagued with technical issues, but they mostly played through them. Gojira (pictured) and TISM were highlights for me, tho we stayed till Regurgitator finished their set.

What I'm saying is that there's only one creative team that has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to produce adaptations of literary classics. And that's why The Muppets should have been allowed to make the Dune movie.

Okay, so I've asked and learned about Rottnest Island, now I want to ask folks from #Canberra, anything good to see/do there?

The National Dinosaur Museum is top of my list (and only thing on my list, haha). 🦖 My partner is keen to visit, but doesn't think it's worthwhile if we're only seeing one thing.

Um... Go see the Dog on the Tuckerbox in Gundagai?

Hey Instance Admins,

I'm starting to write a guide for instance admins looking to scale and run long term stable and safe Mastodon Communities.

I've started brain dumping, and this is a proof of concept right now.

Can you please all DM me and/or reply with any notes / posts or blogs related to being a mastodon admin?

I'm interesting in tech, culture and mental health.

Is there a good way for me to export our list of banned servers for my good friend's new instance? or a good way to import a list?
