I've been in touch with the folks at Native-Land.ca to see about adding India's indigenous (Adivasi) communities to their project. They already have great coverage of North America and Australia (and now Taiwan!).

It's going to be hard -- the Indian government keeps good census data, but not GIS maps that I know of. To help facilitate it, I put together a primer for them with links to some existing resources:

Here's a #QuestionOfTheDay for you all.

Which of the following musical artists has the greatest "albums per year" ratio? By that, I mean, the number of full length studio albums (excluding live albums, collabs, or compilations) recorded over the number of years they have been or were actively a recording artist or band.

Vote now!

The ratios are in the following toot behind a content warning.

@dhoop@mastodon.social Is there anyone who doesn't like Mithila Palkar? Is that humanly possible?

Do people create personal lists like "30 things to do before 30"?

Will be 27 in a few days. Officially late 20s. Thinking of creating a list like that.

Though the biggest worry is I wouldn't be able to complete the list! :P


Has anyone else notice how feature rich is? Like you take a picture of your data and it can evaluate it.

Though simple tasks like opening a CSV file feels like you need a rocket science degree.

On the side, there exists , where you only need to open the file, choose the delimiters, and you are good to go.

When creating PDFs, avoid using "Print to PDF." A screen reader user may still be able to access the text of PDFs created this way, but heading structure, alternative text, and any other tag structure will be lost. Using "Save As" or "Export" can preserve these tags.

@dhoop@mastodon.social Wow. 8-10 in a month! That's some hot streak.

Sawan ka effect? :P

“We notice you are using an ad blocker…”

Yes, and I notice you are using a few dozen trackers. Turn off the trackers and I will look at your ads. Until then, we are at an impass.

@dhoop@mastodon.social @shrikant Haha that's fine only.

But you shouldn't be thinking about others feeling awkward by your posts. Specially here. :-)

This is great. I love stumbling across things.

@dhoop@mastodon.social @shrikant

Haha. I am in my late 20s too. I wish you could do that! Delete old posts and have a clean slate!

Among my peers, mostly I have seen people deleting their whole Insta feed after a breakup. That is necessary, sometimes. :P

TOI reported on BJP's "counter-offensive" narrative using information from Manipur under the Congress regime. But how did BJP's narrative also become the narrative of some in the media? They don't even pretend anymore where they seemingly get their orders from? 🤷

Need some help from fellow mastodon admins - ever since the latest 4.1.5 update, all remote post timestamps have been broken on this instance. Anytime we fetch messages it shows as having been posted around 5-19 hours ago (and i think that gap is increasing slowly over the past three days.)

I've restarted all my processes but to no avail. Any tips? Is this a known bug? I can't see it as a logged issue in the mastodon repo.
