Sun at the Sun. Yarraville feels more like Fremantle than Melbourne. I really dig it.

Taken a few days ago but Melbourne is looking very Melbourne. You love to see it.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday :)

I set a google alert for a search term that I wrote the wikipedia article for, in the hope that I'd find more sources to use in the article. Unfortunately, all the new alerts are clearly based on my article.

Lake Surprise at Budj Bim. Taken during work trip doing some archeological survey work nearby. The whole area is recognised on the UNESCO World Heritage list due to its remarkable cultural heritage and its massive significance to the Gunditjmara people.

@danielhglus Seems reasonable to me. Wasn't something I had thought about before. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

@danielhglus what alternatives are they proposing if you don't mind me asking.

@ajft Yep same here. This is peak small town bluestone pub as well. Definitely worthy of a stop over.

Some regional Victorian snaps taken this earlier week while on a work trip. Can't want to head out bush and camp again.

JUST LOOK AT THESE SKIES!

@urusan Obligatory iT DePeNdS answer.

I've been vim + tmux for so long now that it's second nature, but mostly do Python dev. VSCode is a great all rounder and seems to fit in nicely with everything Windows like C# and is amazing for things like IoT dev as well.

As an aside, going vim-to-term with :term inside vim is crazy and backwards and I don't like it one bit and y'all crazy.

@bortzmeyer @selea But nothing in those articles is inherently negative towards Mastodon. It's just states it was abused in a novel way.

@selea @bortzmeyer Who is using this as an argument against Mastodon?

This is a great achievment for the fediverse: it is now used by malware (in this case, to find the C&C, or C2, the Command and Control center where the malware will take instructions).

Do note the stupid remark (a typical one from some security fans) saying that the fediverse is not censored enough.

(The account mentioned in the article is already suspended.)

@drown Nightjars are quite common all over the world and very diverse species.

Frogmouth's though... I'm not exactly sure. I think you are right in that they are mostly in the southern hemisphere but I cannot find a decent distribution map!

Tawny's are so popular they've taken over search results for all other varieties haha

@bignose An absolute tragedy. We'll get em next year.

@drown Melbourne, Australia. They're quite common down here but can be hard to spot because they're usually very camouflaged.

They definitely have a unique look and are unique in the sense they almost always get miscategorised as an Owl when in fact they are from the Nightjar family. They stay in one spot and snap up insects rather than hunt with talons.

They also mate for life, cuddle up together for sleep, and are terrible at making nests. BIRD FACTS.
