Some happier bike stuff: look at all these designs in the Bicycle Architecture Biennale: https://www.theguardian.com/cities/bike-blog/gallery/2019/jun/17/build-it-and-they-will-bike-the-second-bicycle-architecture-biennale-in-pictures
[NB: not all are built, some are concept designs]
From that article, I learned about https://thequeensway.org/ which has potential to be all the cool things the High Line isn't (I the High Line but it is basically a tourist playground). And I used to live by Parkland Walk which they cite on https://thequeensway.org/the-plan/plan-overview/ and cycled it regularly.
@vector hrm... I thought glitch-soc had rich text but reading the page now I don't think it does.
(don't worry, writing all that out answered my rhetorical question very thoroughly)
@vector I am interested in what people have to say, but don't know enough about Florence. I think I'm currently leaning towards glitch - although there are only 2 or 3 features there that I personally care about, I bet everything in the set is relevant to someone here. (I'd do patches if it were a personal instance, maybe)
@sunconscious this doesn't help you, but gods I hate the H1B system for doing this to people.
Hey Weirder Earthicans. We’re on 2.9.0 Vanilla Mastodon, but I am curious where we want to go? Florence has just released their first forked version of Mastodon and Glitch.social is always a pppular option, or we could just pull features as patches into our own fork as desired. What direction do you want us to go in?

OK, I'm asking for money (the first time ever). Please boost!
I need to come up with $175 to arbitrate with a law firm. If I can't come up with the $175 I am going to lose over $1,000— which will financially devastate me.
You can read about the whole situation here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-me-fight-an-unjust-invoice-from-a-law-firm
Please help, even if you can only give $3 or $4!
There's a lot of spambots going around now, and some real people showing their arses in response to Tusky's rickrolling thing. Thank you moderators of various other instances for quickly banning accounts reported by users. Together we can keep this a comfortable space and minimise cycles wasted on banal bullshit.

@distel I usually find that that group's done better research than that. But USians in general do tend to confuse European countries with their neighbours, as if the legal and cultural differences crossing the Germany-Denmark border were smaller than crossing Washington-Oregon.
@sunconscious Thanks. I think I was too focussed on looking through individual projects, but that overall view is exactly what I need to stop dropping packets.
@Tak Thank you, that is exactly what I was looking for. Not sure how I overlooked it in the UI.
