@yoyehudi Solidarity to everyone out on strike this month. Use the time to do something fun and look after yourself!

This is why we should strike, even if _our_ pay is okay, even if we're not overworked- to stand up for those who can't.#UCUstrike #UCUstrikesback


the situation is so bad re. #UCUstrikesback that I have tutors who *cannot afford* to strike because they're on casual contracts with such low pay. so, solidarity to all uni staff who are striking, and to those who support strikes but have no choice but to cross picket lines

I gave my exo-skin a ruddy hue, and as I approached them, I fluttered my eyelids rapidly, fast enough to create micro tornadoes.

Going to the emergency room together counts as a date, right?

Question for the "real" librarians, archivists and other Glam folks out there: does "finding aid" have a special, generally accepted meaning, or some historical usage that leads to assumptions about what is and isn't a finding aid? Or is it literally just anything other than the main catalogue that helps you find stuff?

TIL: DisplayPort supports resolutions (much) greater than 1920×1080@60Hz, and so does HDMI 2.0, but you might have a DisplayPort to HDMI 1.4 adapt which limits your output to that even if your monitor supports higher. 😖

New adaptor ordered...
