Useful iOS Shortcuts/Automation

I just recently figured out how to use shortcuts/Automation on my iPhone (connecting to audio devices and starting up a Spotify playlist) and thought it could simplify my life a bit. Do you all have any great ideas on how to automate/shorten some steps do things? I have no smart home enabled devices.

Where are Eddy and Lao Yang from "Empire of Dust" (2011) today?

I just saw the documentary "Empire of Dust" (2011) about a Chinese crew building a road in Congo and enjoyed it. (You may have seen the "It's all so tiresome" meme from this movie.) Does anyone know where the two main characters, Eddy and Lao Yang, are today? Is the road they were working on done?

How to choose an online Mass. CSL Class?

I would like to take an online prep course for the Massachusetts Construction Supervisors’ License exam while I am recovering from surgery in November. I’m finding the options difficult to compare because the websites are all about the same and don’t provide info about the actual course material. I own the required books but I need structure for how to use them to study. [more inside]

Looking for new video series / vlogs with live-in volunteers & building

I've noticed that a couple of video series I've enjoyed -- Charlotte Church's Dream Build (Discovery+), and Sailing Parlay Revival (YouTube) -- Share the common themes of building/repairing, and volunteers that are provided accomodation. Does anyone know any other video series with these elements?

If I want to run a Calckey instance, what do I need?

I have no idea if my friends will ever make the switch, but I want to offer a space. At most I've ever done is shared hosting (my site runs on WordPress). I'm not considering any Mastodon software at all. I might consider Pixelfed as well. What do I need to know, to set up a Calckey (or Pixelfed) instance in terms of: - what to look for in hosting - what technical knowledge do I need to know or find people who know - where are the admins getting their blocklists these days - related, where do admins mingle to communicate all these management stuff - any movements on the legal liability side of things?

Story about a guy who trapped opossums and released them near his house?

A few days ago there was a post on the blue about opossums. It made me remember the funny story I saw online in the last few years, sort of a This American Life-type story or maybe a Twitter thread, about a guy who got a job or started a business trapping and releasing unwanted opossums that were in people's yards.

Processing donations

Do you have experience using Patreon or competitors (Ko-fi, OnlyFans, other?). How did you pick which service to use? How did you research the costs to you? Especially interested in communities/organizations experiences but will take any advice or ideally a link to a side by side comparison around price, ease of use, etc.

Paris (Bastille-ish) secure short term bike parking options?

We are taking our bikes to France to ride in the countryside (yay), but first we will be in Paris for a few days. We are not able to store our bikes at our hotel in Bastille. It seems like there are a few bike storage rental options (train stations, private garages), but it is hard to tell how secure they are. If you have experience dealing with Paris bike storage, what was it like?
