For I'll give you a video of me signing lynx in Finnish Sign Language.

I was wondering how to fingerspell Arabic letters in a sign language. And today I came across this, the fingerspelling of Saudi Arabian Sign Language.

I don't know if these same signs are in use in other sign languages in the other Arabic countries. But at least these just look so... elegant!

If you're writing software and it's even remotely possible that it could be used with any other language than English, make sure your software doesn't forcibly use ligatures unless it's 100% sure it's handling English text. Otherwise you'll just produce utter ugliness.

Waiting a railcar to departure. Some sort of technical issue, we're 40 minutes late already.

I was bikeing home.

A cop car and a security car were parked side by side on the bike path. Hardly got past them.

And right after that I had to brake in a downhill where ”anti-slippery” gravel was making the iceless tarmac slippery (it wouldn't be slippery at all without the gravel), and I fell over with my groceries.

Enough for one day.

And not only that — the supermarket machine (whatever that is) was out of order!

This is a nice summary of different decision making methods (from @SociocracyForAll folks).

Hahaa, finally my author's copies have made their long journey from the west coast of the USA to my home in Finland!

Look, there it is! My first genuinely foreign publication!
