Grillen und Feuer machen war wegen der #Dürre verboten. Aber Bomben testen, das geht. Ergebnis: Die #Bundeswehr hat im Emsland einen riesigen Moorbrand zu verantworten.

Reg Edit has seen some stuff.
He stares past his coffee into the thousand-fold permutations of GUID Space.
"When an application is no longer a benefit..." he begins.
It is an hour before he speaks again.
"They call it Uninstallation."
His voice is barely a whisper now, barely a drop in the endless neon acid rain.
"But sometimes. Sometimes they won't just uninstall quietly."
On the eternal sunset skyline, a blimp crashes in flames above a pyramid.
"And that's where I come in."

Tried to upgrade my Nexus4 to #lineageos 15.1, got caught in "insufficient storage space on /sdcard/", (6GB apparently not enough), unsuccessfully tried cache wipe, rebooted, found myself with a freshly installed phone without apps or fdroid.

the old page the state department website, "gender designation change", is now a 404: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/apply-renew-passport/gender.html
this is very recent, here's a capture from monday: https://web.archive.org/web/20180910135701/https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/apply-renew-passport/gender.html
this page now exists and is titled "sex designation change"... https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/apply-renew-passport/sex-designation-change.html

still, very chilling 😓
