I would like to research the use of nanoparticles made from non-precious materials (so, not gold or palladium or anything of that sort) in chemical analysis, by the means that I've been talking about in previous toots, by attaching molecules to the nanoparticle surface that are capable of selective binding of ligands
Google Scholar is _very_ frustrating for any sort of proper research. I don't suppose anyone here has more familiarity with current research?
#AskMastodon Looking for Romantic tragedies (plays, opera, novels, etc.) from any time period. I’m outlining a dialogue-heavy satire about a cat who is turned into a man and must navigate a human dinner party, and am aiming for flowery, archaic language that contrasts with a modern setting.
I’m starting with Shakespeare’s tragedies and will happily watch and/or read any recommendations. Questions welcome. Boosts will be blessed 🖋📚☕️

I can't get my brick texture to accept a transparancy. It looks like when I put transparent space in the texture it fills the space in with the generic brick texture.
I was told I might have to change a pallette file, like the leaves have? But I'm not seeing that file in my folders. Do I need to make one?
I'm not sure how many people actually used the feature, but regular-Firefox just nuked the Live Bookmarks feed aggregation thing and left me without my main feed reader. Does anyone have recommendations for a separate feed reader software? I'm looking for:
- lightweight enough to leave open in the background on my eight-year-old craptop (VLC playing mp3s is probably a decent benchmark)
- actively maintained and updated, with no present reason to be concerned about maintenance being dropped
- functional on 64-bit Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1
(I'm eyeing Claws Mail - https://www.claws-mail.org/ - but I never heard of it before today, so I'm hesitating.)

6 hours and 3 GB later, I've safely concluded that HTTrack is ideal for downloading a small Tumblr blog (a handful of text posts and no reblogs), but is unsuitable for downloading a larger blog (one that's reblogged a lot and has a lot of images), because the tool downloads too much extraneous material (chunks of other blogs you've interacted with).
Please let me know of any lesser-known tools for downloading or exporting an entire Tumblr, other than Wordpress, TumblThree, or Soup.io!

I'm going to start studying Futhark runes. Anyone here particularily familiar with them? I'd appreciate guidance in avoiding sources that are racist/fascist, or that are based too much on the author's intuition/UPG. I'm looking more for sources focused on their history and practical/magical/divinatory use.
I've asked this once before but gotten no replies. So I am trying again
Is there a general purpose Android app that will transcribe my voicemail for me? My old LG phone came with an app that did this, but the new Moto X4 phone did not, and the Sprint app I had been using does not work with my new phone.
I found a mention of something called "HulloMail" and tentatively tried it but it looks horrible. is there anything GOOD
#AskMastodon #AskFediverse I'm looking for feedback and suggestions on running multiple accounts on multiples instances. I'm guessing you have multiple accounts it's because they fit different purposes. But I might be wrong.
How do you manage them? Do you follow the same people or maintain 2 very different follow lists? Do you post, x-post or boost the same content on all accounts, sometimes or never? Which tool or functionality are you missing that would ease managing those accounts?
