@Robby Fun fact! Nearly all of the Barks comics (and a lot of others) were translated by Erika Fuchs who ended up having a not insignificant influence on the German language is is still celebrated by German Donaldists today.
@Robby Considering Disney is based in the US it really feels like people there are missing out on a lot of great comics and characters.
@Robby There are monthly pocketbooks with mostly Italian stories here that you can get at any kiosk, I don't think I've ever seen one that didn't have the latest edition and usually a couple ones back. I've read tons of those.
I also got gifted a large collection of old Mickey Mouse magazines. The Rosa stories in those were the best but printed in parts and was usually missing at least one.
Now I own all eight (+1) books of his Hall of Fame collection, real shame he can't draw anymore!
@Robby She's called Gitta Gans in the German translations.
Can I say how much I love you for doing this? It's a shame a lot of people don't even know Don Rosa's works, let alone the Italian artists'!
@sluglife you get Brigitta MacBridge, Uncle Scrooge's extremely insistent love interest, primarily seen in Italian comics.
@InvaderXan The crocuses are blooming in a wonderful purple here, it's quite a sight!
@kde Have you set up a Matrix community for all the KDE rooms? This makes it a lot easier to discover releveant rooms and to context switch between projects.
@Paradox Gonna print this toot and fax it to some people who really need to know this.
Improving your cheap home-brewed coffee, a guide to diminishing returns: Show more
1) Clean your gear. Whatever it is. Clean it.
2) Buy coffee with a one-way valve in the bag. If explosion isn't a risk, you don't want it. Grind your own, even just at the grocery store.
3) Use decent-tasting, fresh water
4) Aim for decent storage conditions (not on top of your fridge)
5) Find the most recently roasted beans you can
6) Nice gear
7) Nice grinder
Handle 1-4 before tackling 5-7.

@amydentata What a fascinating thought! According to Wikipedia 2% of the global population and 2-6% of people with ancestry in western/northern Europe have red hair.
The number for people identifying as trans in the US quoted there is 0.5 to 0.6% but I totally agree that number would be higher if everyone lived in a tolerant and accepting community.
