@nusenu is there any javascript parser for the contactinfo scheme? something that just turns the string into an object would be great.

Don't know how to code but still want to contribute to open projects? Consider open street maps!

OSM is the community built map of the world. Anyone can edit the map and all the data is freely available and usable in any of your projects.

Start in your own neighborhood. Maybe your street is missing or named wrong. Update the corner shop hours. Map the parks or sidewalks. Anything helps and many hands make light work!

First ride of the year. Between self isolation and icy roads it has been the first opportunity to do it really. I didn’t go very far but it is a start, at least I got it out the cupboard and went somewhere.

Thanks to @tj for fixing up the bike. It's working well.

Was thinking of @pla so I stopped to take a couple of pictures. Seeing his posts on the timeline were definitely a contributing factor leading to me going on a ride today. Sometimes you don't do something for so long you feel pretty detached from it, and those posts helped me to reconnect.

If you have any Sky Viewing Cards from the analog era which look like this -- I'd very much like to buy them from you... I've heard of old satellite dealers who kept stashes of the old Quickstart packs as souvenirs, they'd likely contain these cards.

It's been almost a year but I still hate the term "social distancing"

It's physical distancing we need, and social closeness more than ever!

I really want work to buy me a new M1 Mac, but wish I knew I could run an OpenBSD arm64 vm on it with X and Firefox/Chromium first.

Hello, I’m the reel2bits project main developper (a #FOSS self-hostable #soundcloud like with #ActivityPub federation).

boosts appreciated, thanks.

Arm really not happy today after flu vaccine yesterday. I'm happy to finally get the vaccine but if previous experience is anything to go on I'm going to feel like I've been punched in the arm for the rest of the day.

Hope it's warmed up enough downstairs that I can make breakfast. :blobcatmorning:

#DOFH excuse #1:

Admin executed random code from Stack Overflow.

Woke up before the central heating. :blobcatoh:

The context here is that my self-isolation ended today and I could go outside. I don't know if it was or not, because they lost my test sample.

It's really overcast today, dark enough I'd put my headlights on to drive, but it still seemed so bright after being inside so long.

Self-built IBM-XT compatibile #mini8088 #retrocomputer is up and running! Couldn't find a 28.636Mhz crystal, just a 14.318 one, so I'm stuck with a 4.77Mhz clock and a turbo mode of 7.16Mhz (no 9.55 for now).
Serial port, CF, audio, floppy and VGA all tested fine! Now I just need the smaller 8bit backplane and to drill holes in the brackets. #homebrewcomputing

Today I was able to walk in a straight line for more than 6 meters. That was different.

@embr Due to issues with customs, Pepsi and Coke become rare luxury goods for the ivory tower elite.

Forced to subside on Tesco Brand Diet Cola, the nation's despair deepens...

...until the Irn Bru Smugglers, Heroes of the Resistance, start smuggling in Barr Cola as a replacement.

"Is Barr okay?" or "Is Bru okay?" is not just said as a Britishism to disaster tourists dining at restaurants but as a rallying cry of unity in a divided land

All sides of the political chart salute the smugglers

@irl Would be nice if Mastodon had a way for admins to predesignate keywords as CW-worthy, and then offer those suggestions to posters when a message might match.


CWs are warnings of content such that those reading it are able to determine if they want to read it or not. If you're going to add a clickbait headline to your CW then you're missing the point.

Please do let me know if you catch me doing it because I have caught myself a couple of times and I'm sure there's other times I have missed it.

I think I'm going to try and limit my CW to a strict set of keywords such that I can avoid doing this.

What I want to know is when I can get that sandwich meets Dutch border guard experience in Euro Truck Simulator.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
