Don't you just love spring. A greylag with two chicks in front of our house.

Earthlings, American (age restricted) documentary film about humanity's use of other animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix.

I must caution the viewer that this documentary contains shocking content.

It appears that 200.000 animals were stuck in the Suez Canal after the Ever Given caused the longest closure of the canal in decades. The transport of animals over sea is causing unnecessary suffering and has to stop.

What is typically Dutch when it comes to bicycling? Here are some traits that could be considered Dutch.

Politics, there is no planet b 

The current neoliberal growth model is exhausting our planet and causing immense suffering to people and animals. We must stop cutting the branch we are sitting on. When politics changes course together with citizens, we can keep the earth liveable for humans and animals.

Animal Rights 

The Animal Rights Party in the Netherlands got almost 4% of the votes during the election for a new Parliament in the Netherlands last Wednesday.

I think the Netherlands is the only country with a sizable Animal Rights Party which is a shame. What the world needs is an eco-centric approach instead of an human-centric approach.

As the #voron printer design is gpl licensed, you get to play around with every part of it, including the design. This is very useful while (re-)building the printer.

Here's a screenshot from #freecad from what I am trying to build.

* 0.19 official release is approaching, after 23 months of development
* Ubuntu daily PPA is soon to get updated OCCT libraries (from 7.3.0 to 7.5.1) which should prevent some crashes, a benefit from a FreeCAD contributor who patched the OCCT source code. The packages are already uploaded, last night's builds of FreeCAD failed because of unmet dependencies with netgen, a separate issue. Up to now netgen support had been disabled...

Would you recommend a #Creality #CR10 for entry-level #3dprinting (budget around 300 Euros)? Any caveats, alternatives?
Asking for someone...

Fantastic talk about the development of #penpot the open source design app! I had no idea it's the same developers who develop Taiga:)

There was a call to action at the end:

- give it a spin

- give feedback

- spread the word

1. Keep the only planet we have in as pristine a condition as we can

2. Find another planet to halve our risk of extinction

Capitalists: Fuck #1, but #2 sounds like fun.
