@msh That's funny! Yes, my "mother bush" tunneled 4 metres under my shed's cement pad, then up through some pavers.
"Yeah, I do like me some raspberries, but jeez, slow down, eh"
@msh I've not read much about TikTok. Sounds like they may be the stinkiest of a very smelly industry.
I know the theory of machine learning but this 13 minute video on #tiktok's algorithm really drove home for me the effect on people: https://www.wsj.com/video/series/inside-tiktoks-highly-secretive-algorithm/investigation-how-tiktok-algorithm-figures-out-your-deepest-desires/6C0C2040-FF25-4827-8528-2BD6612E3796 (WSJ but not paywalled)
@msh Admirable restraint. We need to keep public discourse civil. (if we want to trash someone, that's what bots are for)
@msh Hopefully the hail missed you (looks like you got a decade's worth of hail last year). Hardly got a drop rain that night, here in YEG.
Our water bill for this month is going to sting. Trying to keep alive vegetables and the new perennials we planted to replace winter kill.
Second 37℃ day in a row. Kitchen's temperature was 30, so I harvested some Swiss chard and cooked it over our propane stove in the backyard.
Sunday's forecast is for 23℃. That would be #heaven!
@msh funny! if a toot is slow to post i will say a prayer for your server fans 😅
thx for all you do, mark!
It is now 30℃ in our wee house. Environment Canada says that by 23:00 the temperature outside will have fallen to 29, at which point we will open the windows.
My brain is barely turning over, running on half a cylinder.
I listened to a short story a few months ago set not that many years in the future when heat waves that killed millions of people at a time were common (Escape Pod?).
I have seen the future...
