I'm sure this makes me incredibly bland and "basic," but I love the lofi hip hop vibe. It's perfect for just chilling with a morning coffee, but it also works really well for getting shit done at work...I can just block everyone out and listen to some chill beats while I write.

@evelynyap The visualization thing would be especially helpful because, for some reason, goeuro shows all trips as a straight line between the two locations, even though that's rarely the route the railway actually takes.

@evelynyap That sounds very useful. I'll take a look!

Black Banner Magic is an excellent podcast for anyone wanting to know more about the wonderful witchy weirdos who occupy parts of the left. It's certainly helping me understand what drives people to practice magic and why that doesn't necessarily mean they're anti-science/anti-materialist (some (most?) of them don't really even believe in "magic" as those of us not involved might think of it). It's super interesting, IMO.

I was just reminded of the fact that Apache Open Office (AOO) still exists and that Apache refuses to kill it, such that LibreOffice could take its place (and downloads! Many people still don't know about #LibreOffice and still download AOO, which hasn't seen a non-bugfix release in > 4 years).

Then I was reminded of this blogpost by the Apache foundation president, about how AOO just got "a shot of adrenaline" and was about to rise to new heights:

yeah, so anyway, i'm not a huge fan of blocking instances, but pleroma.site is blocking albin.social because it's basically a data harvesting and advertising operation

other instance admins should do what they want, but blocking it probably isn't the worst thing in the world

Anyone have a good site for planning train trips throughout Europe? I've been using goeuro.com, which is nice, but doesn't do great at planning trips where I'd want to, for example, get off the train for 3-6 hours but not have that city be my final destination.
