@kensanata Remember a little while back when you were interested in the idea of smolnet propaganda? I found a short blog post by Bruce Sterling (https://www.wired.com/beyond-the-beyond/2020/06/islands-in-the-blog/) which ends with the line "My internet is substantially quieter than yours, and teaches me new things every day". I absolutely love this line! "My internet is substantially quieter than yours" is a wonderful catchphrase by itself, perfect for fans of Gopher, Gemini and pubnixes.

Karl recently had a bad cycling accident.
Global priority areas for ecosystem restoration - Strassburg et al. (2020)
"combining the retention of remaining natural ecosystems with the restoration of 30% of converted lands in priority areas would mitigate 71±4% of current extinction debt while sequestering 465±59 gigatonnes of CO2 — equivalent to 49% of all of the CO2 increase in the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution"
"restoration targets: results highlight the importance of including several biomes"
Finished inking the archer today.
Bonus flush of Pleurotus ostreatus mushrooms from the buckets I started many months ago.
I moved these buckets outside after two flushes & removed the lids to allow the late-winter rains to rehydrate the substrate.
It's hard to tell from this photo but the attachment points of these clusters are between the bucket & the substrate (below the top surface).
Mushrooms often form at the interface between zones. In this case, a moist area at the edge of the substrate & close to open-air.
It takes me a long time to walk through this stretch at the moment...so many gorgeous flowers to stop and look at.
