Did you know that you don't have to be a Norwegian citizen to vote in the local election in Norway?
If you are from the neighbouring Scandinavian countries you just have to live here. If you are from another country you have to have lived here for a few months.
The election is in two weeks, but you can vote today and the next week also. Find your closest booth at valglokaler.no
And vote Green Party!
I continue with the North America nebula for three hours last night. Here's the end result.
The image was taken with a narrowband filter that only passes light emitted by hydrogen glowing at a certain wavelength when exposed to the harsh ultraviolet radiation from nearby stars.
With narrowband filters it is possible to separate different elements from each other, and also - maybe more importantly - get rid of most of light pollution.
While I was in France, a lovely couple from Greece stayed in my house. We met through the #fediverse, when they kindly offered to look after my hopefully soon-to-be-arriving Romanian streetdog.
Thank you, M&S, for bringing Greek delicacies and leaving my house even cleaner than it was. I love the beautiful artwork that you left, it looks so much like Jazz! I'll buy a frame and hang it up tomorrow :) I hope you had a nice time and a good flight home!

The fosstodon stickers arrived! Thank you @kev!
Noice! i3wm updated to 4.17!
• default config: start xss-lock, nm-applet, pactl (volume keys)
• config: make binding modes case-sensitive
• check for duplicate key bindings in i3 -C
• i3bar: support transparency via --transparency flag (RGBA)
• i3bar: support for user-defined border widths
I know I still use i3bar, because it does all I need, but I see many with different bars... so, YMMV.
Can we add this gif custom emoji? It's awesome. (I found this on public timeline)
So @mike has just informed me that today is Fosstodon’s 2nd birthday.
Two years, almost 5 thousand accounts, and almost 160 thousand status messages. It's been a wild ride. Here’s to many more!
Student, he/him. Shit posting. Live in 'other country'.
