IOC funded, but they were happy enough to throw us under the bus with their last trans inclusion policy, so I don't see this making any difference. They're not interested in science or fairness, they're interested in not rocking the boat

No poll. But I'm a trans athlete that has been active in trans communities for nearly a decade.

I have no numbers, but I think it's safe to say I'd be aware if most of my own community was against my participation.

[-] ada 3 points 21 hours ago

Most of the trans community agrees with this assessment. I

No they don't...

I'd rather submit my records to a sports oversight board than be excluded from competing.

You say "trans people shouldn't have to disclose their medical history to stay employed", but you're seemingly happy to speak for trans folk and just accept that they should be unemployed.

The real irony being that anyone in elite sports, trans or not, already has to submit to the lab work you're uncomfortable with, as a condition of their employment.

The scenario you're trying to avoid? That's why the lab work already happens, because many cis athletes take performance enhancing drugs to gain advantage, because they're incentivised to in a capitalist society.

But somehow, that lab work is only an issue that you feel the need to speak up on when it's for trans folk?

Trans people get the lab work you're talking about done regularly anyway, because it's part of ensuring their levels are safe and correct.

You're voting for exclusion (trans competitions will never happen) because you're uncomfortable with trans people having to do something that is already part of their daily lives

It's been dealt with on our end, but as this community isn't hosted on blahaj.zone, I can't federate the removal. A community mod will still need to action it to federate the removal to other instances

[-] ada 2 points 1 day ago

Yep! Exactly (though I did most of my image editing in Lightroom)

Also, when you are playing around with darktable, it's worth spending the time learning how to use parametric and drawn masks. If you ever use masks in your editing, mastering those in darktable will be the missing piece that makes it all come together for you. It's very different to masking in Photoshop or Lightroom, but IMO, more flexible and more powerful. But you need to really play with it to understand how to use it best.

Look in to a diffuser for your hair dryer

This is why I struggle with my curly hair. My preferred hair care routine is the lazy girl method :P

So I just end up with frizz most of the time.

You don't need to import your library in to darktable. Darktable isn't great at photo management and workflow.

What I do is use digiKam to manage my old Lightroom collection. In lightroom, make sure you've set it up to store metadata in sidecar files. Write your sidecar files out (this can take a long time). Open digiKam, and you can import all of your lightroom photos and data.

Then photos that need editing get sent to darktable from digiKam

The expression on that second birds face is meme worthy!

New Birdnet-Pi (lemmy.blahaj.zone)
submitted 1 week ago* (last edited 1 week ago) by ada to c/birding@lemmy.world

Today, I set up my new Birdnet-Pi,a raspberry Pi, running an app that detects and identifies birds by their calls. This is my first half day of recording birds.

Image description: A screenshot of the Birdnet Pi web interface. At the top, it shows a breakdown of birds from that day, sorted by species and time. In order of total number of occurrences, the birds listed are Torresian Crow, Australasian Figbird, Noisy Miner, Barn Owl, Rainbow Lorikeet and Blue-faced Honeyeater. Beneath the list of birds, it shows a waveform graphic for the audio of the latest bird call identitied by the system. In this instance, a Torresian Crow.

I'm growing more and more impressed with its capabilities the more I use it! Wrapping my head around its approach to masking, and its "scene referred pipeline" took some time, but now that I'm getting the hang of it, I think I can say I genuinely prefer it to Lightroom.

Combined with digiKam, which is excellent for photo collection management, I'm a very happy photographer :)
