Almost all of my posts are public, just because I want them to be public and thus findable. The search function in Diaspora is hilarious - it finds only users and hashtags.
I cannot even search for my own posts.
It turns out that here at pluspora, search engines are blocked for privacy concerns. See robots.txt:
User-Agent: \* 
Disallow: /

Now the effect is that mostly anything older than 2 days is gone. I find this unacceptable and want to ask the podmins of pluspora to re-think robots.txt.
Am I the only one who wants a searchable pluspora?

The Flying Train (1902) | MoMA FILM VAULT SUMMER CAMP - YouTube

"The Flying Train" depicts a ride on a suspended railway in Germany in 1902. The footage is almost as impressive as the feat of engineering it captures. For many years our curators believed our Mutoscope rolls were slightly shrunken 70mm film, but they were actually shot on Biograph’s proprietary 68mm stock. Formats like Biograph’s 68mm and Fox’s 70mm Grandeur are of particular interest to researchers visiting the Film Study Center because the large image area affords stunning visual clarity and quality, especially compared to the more standard 35mm or 16mm stocks.

Yes, there's stupid in Germany as well. Good to see the UK doesn't have a monopoly on stupid. (although 17k isn't that many. Especially as I think I saw something a few days ago where some of the organisers (or someone sympathising with them) predicted 7-8M attendees. Yeah, right....)

And what Starmer doesn't even mention is that a lot of people you'd never expect (like the Chaos Computer Club, all kind of privacy advocates, various IT experts, all the people who normally wouldn't touch a government app with a barge pole) are all pretty much praising the app, saying it does most things right (within the technical constraints) and recommend to download it

German public health services are provided not by one central authority but by approximately 400 public health offices, run by municipality and rural district administrations.
Yeah, and as they all fax their numbers of infected and don't work at the weekend, we only have inaccurate numbers

Cigarren aus OWL: Das westfälische Cuba

Sie kommen nicht nur aus Cuba – Cigarren werden auch in Ostwestfalen hergestellt. Der Tabakhandel und die Cigarrenproduktion und sogar der Tabakanbau haben in Westfalen eine lange Geschichte und werden bis heute noch in einigen wenigen Betrieben gepflegt. Auch alte Hansestädte hatten daran ihren Anteil, die Mitglieder der Westfälischen Hanse stehen heute in dieser Tradition.

Sophisticated Soviet spy radio discovered buried in former forest in Germany | Live Science
The radio has been identified as a model R-394KM transmitter and receiver — code-named "Strizh," meaning "Swift" — that was manufactured in the Soviet Union in 1987. It was carried by agents into Western Europe shortly after that, and only a few years before the fall between 1989 and 1991 of the "Iron Curtain" of communism that divided Eastern and Western Europe.
