This Italian route reads like a restaurant menu! Parma (ham), Regio Emilia (cheese), Modena (balsamico vinegar), Bologna (salami).. 😋 plus they show weather forecast at every stop!! ☁️☀️⛅️

So many impressions… #train #travel #SEE #AMRO #InterRail : Arrived to Ancona ; walking to the ferry terminal ; admiring Succulents on the street-garden ; & being aware of the warning: High tension is a deadly danger!

I’ve caught both sunset 🌅 & sunrise 🌄 on the sea!! 🌊 ⛴️ (On the ferry from Ancona to Patras) & slept 9 hours in between! I love #interrail #travel (on my way to #SEE-12 ). Now passing Albania so hooking up on their 4G 😉

Reading about this xz backdoor story from the outside as a person who is still learning much about the technical ins and outs, but as a psychologist it is just overwhelming to imagine a maintainer in this position and all of the feelings of pressure and skill based identity and social isolation that must be involved.

Imho psychology has a duty to show up for technology practitioners and work for them just like we see and work for the well-being of emergency workers, healthcare providers.

@nat @grimalkina there were surveys & I’ll link to them directly later; here are links to my series of 10 articles , linking OSI layers & Maslow needs layers : first 2 are about physical & mental health : https://labs.ripe.net/author/becha/you-are-not-alone-ripe-community-resilience/ & https://labs.ripe.net/author/becha/ripe-community-resilience-physical-layer/

Why are we building chip fabrication facilities in water stressed areas? Worlds biggest fabs are on Taiwan. A small island with very precarious water supplys.

US chips actually is finding new dabs in the US... In Arizona... In Texas... Seriously?!? You have states like Washington where it basically never stops raining, and you want to build a heavy water using industry in a fucking desert?!?!?

The EU is building a big facility in Magdeburg Germany, which is marginally better.
