I DON'T WANT SELF DRIVING CARS!!!!
✔️ I want boring things like public transit that comes so regularly I don't need to check a schedule.
✔️ I want fast passenger rail so accessible and easy it's preferable to suffering airports.
✔️ I want cities that aren't built around cars-as-default
✔️ I want the country to own it.
Also, since this broke in local news, I'll share it here too. The CO State Archives experienced an entirely preventable and horrific disaster in their woefully outdated building on 12/23-24 when pipes burst. This gives a sense of how bad things were. Records on every floor, including records that predate the state. Video from 12/24.
History Nebraska is advertising a Historic Site Manager position at Fort Robinson: https://history.nebraska.gov/historic-site-manager-fort-robinson/
I love so much about the idea of that job. I'm confident The Missus will go with me to Fort Robinson. The dogs are in 100%. Keishor will become a park trailhand or handyman. Robbie will be fine as long as there's high-speed internet.
OK, History Nebraska, sign us up!
Had to scrape ice off the car but the roads seem ok so far. Would def go slow and be careful of slick spots. #LNK
Until a friend pointed it out, I never realized the turbines by i80 are little baby turbines that don't actually produce much electricity. Like I knew it couldn't be much since it's only 2 of them but they're pretty ridiculously small now that I think back and compare to others I've seen #LNK
This bit of sycophancy disguised as journalism is pretty gross. It is a campaign ad, not a career retrospective. Among other things, how can you talk about the Ricketts years without a single mention of his child welfare debacle? https://journalstar.com/news/state-and-regional/govt-and-politics/ricketts-navigated-pandemic-and-record-floods-helped-enact-tax-cuts/article_b7980bf1-db46-59d4-bc24-6c519bed236d.html
Ack the image description is supposed to say "MW climbing" not "me climbing" 😅
My hunch here is that very few people see even aware of this Mastodon feature
So, a poll: prior to reading this thread, did you know that Mastodon by default will only show you public replies to a post if those replies have already been fetched into your server somehow?
(This only affects you when you view a post that originated on a server other than your home server - if the original post author is on the same server as you then you'll see all of the replies)
Hi I run this place, please feel free to ask questions!
I like bikes, pets, climbing at MW. I work at Love Library makin' websites.
