The sidereal day is the time it takes the Earth to rotate once on its axis.

It is shorter than the solar day we use to measure time due to the Earth moving in its orbit so the Sun will appear to have moved and a little more time is needed for it to make it back to the meridian.

Hey Fedi, do you know if there is a federated (perhaps even #ActivityPub-powered) cooking recipe hosting service? If not, let's 👏 make 👏 this 👏 happen!

I hate modern recipe websites. All of them are full with ads and tracking. The leading recipe hosting in my country loads over 30 different trackers, and that's excluding the ads!

How does a network engineer try to comfort a switch that's feeling down?

First he tries to tell it to ssh... And if that doesn't work, he'll try to console it.

Thanks to the fearless efforts of laboratory physicists and chemists, we know exactly what colors of light different types of gas and molecules absorb.

For an exoplanet this works because the planet looks ever so slightly bigger (blocks out more star light) at colors that are absorbed by the atmosphere

So when we see the planet look slightly bigger at certain colors, we can say "hey, there must be Water or Oxygen or CO2 etc!"

“87th floor, room 24,” says the hotel receptionist as I check in.

“87?! How tall is this hotel?” I exclaim.

“Oh, it’s only two floors up,” she smiles, “but we skip unlucky numbers, and there are a LOT of those around the world.”

“Did you know 87 is unlucky for cricketers?” I joke as I reach for the key.

She frowns, pulls back the key. “Your floor is now called—[typing]—the 111th floor.”

I am about to say something about the number 111, think better of it, and accept the key.

I don't think it was the traveling salesman problem was unsolvable as Dijkstra's paper was in the 60s. Maybe something related.

@amolith but I won't get the shiny correctly, can't I have 6 different versions of curl for each app?
