Aight. Lessons learned today: (a) it REALLY helps to read the description correctly (b) my code for today's solution looks like the kitchen after i cook a four course meal while drinking 8 bottles of beer and am too lazy to do the dishes afterwards.

Question for the hivemind: came across what seem to be microfilm cartridges. Is anyone familiar with the carrier form and can tell me whether they are M-Type, ANSI or something different entirely? Also, the label says that they are „NTIS Reference Files: AD Reports“. Does anyone have any info about those reports and knows whether they’ve all been digitized through other means and been made available?

Salut la commu ! Si on prévoyait un apéro, potentiellement répétable mensuellement si couronné de succès - pour parler de préservation numérique et boire des coups, ça intéresserait du monde ?

Solved today's puzzles fairly quickly (that is, "fairly quickly on the relative subjective scale that is my poor Python skills"). Dunno if that's due to:
(a) Sunday relax-mode
(b) actual improvement of skillset
(c) tackled problem earlier in the day than usual
(d) plenty of coffee
(e) all of the above

Art/design academy #job opportunity in the #Netherlands!

WdKA in #Rotterdam is looking for someone to lead and coordinate a multi-year transformation process of one of it core current BA and future MA trajectory. Focus will be on alternative #economy, #ecology, #tech from a critical, practical, and experimental POV.

The main focus of the WdKA Commercial Practices is helping artists and designers materialize and contribute to alternative modes of organization and production based on strong ecological and cooperative/collaborative values. It seeks to help students to reflect on, experiment and engage with such alternatives while bringing the urgency of the climate crisis and climate justice to art and design education. The Practices invite students to critically reflect on consumer activism, technosolutionism and the language of circularity and sustainability frequently found in today’s products and services."
