Why would they lie? What do they have to gain?

I've been involved in the W3C since 2019 where I've been working on privacy enhancing technologies (PETs), and their application to advertising.

Is this a thing, or have I encountered a new gender in the wild?

Looking good, but I feel like we can still do better...

I think increasing the fermentation time was the right call.

For reference, this is what a previous loaf looked like:

@The_Gibson :veilid: I should look into this, but being the absolutely tiny instance I am, it feels a bit like this:

Went to the store to pick up a new swimsuit for Katy when this shirt caught my eye:

Turns out, it's not nearly so interesting as I had originally thought.

@ℹ️❤️🖥 aka Compy-chan This kinda reminds me of the rickroll animated gif where each frame was a valid QR code that pointed to the video in question. For the life of me I can't find the original gif, but I could find this one frame. The animated version was much more impressive.

@Low Quality Facts Well, at least we know they'll make it to the 22nd century.

Well, I'm definitely no longer having issues getting my #sourdough starter to rise. I have invested in a larger jar into which I will transfer it on the next feeding.

Started a fresh batch with some of the feedback I got. This is roughly 10 hours after the first feeding. This is similar to the result I got on previous attempts, except that it nearly wouldn't rise at all on subsequent feedings.

The recipe called for the second feeding to be 24 hours after the first, and then every 12 hours thereafter.

I'm going to try at the 12 hour mark though, since I think the problem was that it had starved by the 24h mark. I'm also using bread flour this time instead of all purpose. I started with whole wheat, because it's what I had on hand, and my wife might murder me if I tell her I need to get yet another variety of flour. 🙃

Is this common for a first feeding? My apartment tends to be quite warm, FWIW.

Are you familiar with this variety of oolong?

@smellsofbikes I've got a MicroSD card that has adaptors to turn it into either a full-sized SD card, or a USB drive.
