I found Skype is allowed to be called "Skype for iPhone" so maybe "Mastodon for iPhone" will work and save me this headache. Still thinking about a subtitle though.

**Meet the Martian meteorite hunters**

"A team is paving the way for future rovers to search for meteorites on Mars. The scientists are using an extensive meteorite collection to test the spectral instruments destined for the ExoMars rover Rosalind Franklin, and develop tools to identify meteorites on the surface of the red planet."

Let's play a friday game, fedi.

Suggest an action movie that you like that meets these two criteria:

1. Makes you think
2. Does not have one single car chase.*

Boosts appreciated.

**Martian global dust storm ended winter early in the south**

"A dust storm that engulfed Mars in 2018 destroyed a vortex of cold air around the planet's south pole and brought an early spring to the hemisphere. By contrast, the storm caused only minor distortions to the polar vortex in the northern hemisphere and no dramatic seasonal changes."

Any #BSD devs in Texas looking for new work? Had a meeting today that makes me think we're going to need at least one more person familiar with working on any #BSD, but #FreeBSD in particular.

Also could use someone comfortable with Makefiles, networking, and shell scripts to help with CI and some releng/devops-type work.

Remote positions possible, but it's preferred that you're able to come into the office.

Boosts welcome, let me know if you think it'd be fun and you can join in! 1/2
