I've been using the chrome google translate extension for a few weeks now to translate foreign language posts in my feed. It has done an amazing job virtually every post seems to translate and the translation seems well enough to communicate and get the original intent.

How is this not a built-in mastodon feature!

If your executives inform you that they find it outrageous that 40% of all sick days taken by employees happen to fall on a Monday or a Friday...

...and the silence that ensues when you point out that Mondays and Fridays simply account for 40% of all workdays 😂

So, woodworking. For an engineering question. How much manufacturing waste should I reasonably expect from marine ply? I am trying to work out material utilisation right now, but I actually don't know enough about the material to work out a margin of error on it and it would mess with me to just guesstimate. Does anyone here know how this material behaves irl?

So I posted some questions on our discourse about how we want to use and/or moderate the QOTOJournal hash tag. I will repeat the questions here and leave a link to the discourse at the bottom for further discussion.

Does it have to be STEM specific or can it include other fields?

Does it need to have scientific integrity (Peer review) or simply be "serious"?

Do we enforce any sort of quality standards?

Should it be restricted to only sharing ones own work or can it be for anytime someone shares serious work from any source?

Do we limit the timeline we have built-in to QOTO to only display users of the Tag from our local server?

Do we put any limits to how often people can post to the tag?

What measures, if any, do we want to use to prevent abuse of the tag?


them: oh my gosh your gender is great, I love it

Any electrical engineers fancy checking my resistance assignment for me? It's really basic but I am fairly certain I messed it up and I want to know how >_<

You might remember that due to my occasional inability to regulate how much work I do or to feed myself, I was given a new manager ... my cat.

The rules are, I eat when he wants to eat. I break when he wants to break.

Today, he can be your manager too. I'll time-stamp each of his management moments so you can follow along in your timezone.
