After 3 days of driving I'm convinced that Ontario never ends

Any podcast suggestions for a roadtrip? I downloaded some hardcore history episodes but want to listen to some other stuff. I've been really enjoying ReplyAll which is kinda journalism stuff based around the internet.

After sleeping on it, I think #Mastodon should rename ‘instances’ to ‘Communities.’

Instances feels too technical and I see even savvy people struggling to understand it.

I argue communities would make much more sense. It denotes much of the purpose behind _why_ this service has different instances, and many people will already be familiar with the concept from Reddit (the, what, sixth most popular site on the net?).

I'm about to drive ~11000 kilometers over the next few weeks. I've downloaded ~65 gigs of new music but I'm still terrified of running out of stuff to listen to

tfw the nation that can't use the gear shift sells guns in their supermarkets

@thurloat never played! Will check it out and see if I can find it around town here.

@fuddster Valid! Never given it a shot, good call!

Ok I am not a fan of chess but my roadtrip partner for the next 4 weeks is a big chess fan.

A) how do I enjoy chess
B) what is a portable "quick" game comparable to chess that we can play

@Nuntius it's really a lot easier than I first expected it to be. I've got a base theme I built with tachyons css that is quite minimal - but I don't think it's good for public use as a lot of stuff is hard-coded, I'm not using the configuration file as I should, etc

Oh damn the spam is real currently on Moosetodon

All the #distributed, #federated #webapps in the world don't matter if they're prohibitively hard for people to run (ie #selfhost!).

That's how most of the world's #email ended up owned by #Google and #Microsoft.

So it's almost criminal that the leading #FOSS #selfhosting platform @yunohost is only getting €9.63 a week from their #Liberapay.

We can do better! Let's make it easy for everyone to host #Mastodon, #Peertube, #Wordpress, #Pixelfed etc!

Go, #Fediverse! Go!


freecampsites.net is officially my favourite website ever. I've got a solid Google Map going of over 20 (4+ star rating) free campsite coordinates across Canada for my roadtrip next week.

Some of these are in gorgeous locations, nearby other campgrounds that charge somewhere in the range of $60 for an almost equivalent experience

@ink_slinger Hahahaha live twitch stream everything and it may be doable

Reading Jake Kerouac just makes me want to drink wine and hop trains across the states. It's not a bad idea, but I wonder how feasible it is to live a beat generation lifestyle these days.

I've done my share of backpacking and roughing it across countries but these guys were the OG bums, I love it

@ink_slinger @allan I have friends in Banff so my original thought was Calgary > Banff, but if Jasper is nice to see I guess I can always drive up there anyways. Thanks for the thoughts!!

@ink_slinger @allan Awesome! Sorry, just catching up on this. Just did a bunch of planning last night and came across these two routes and was trying to make a decision.

I feel like I remember saying either Calgary > Banff or Edmonton > Jasper is like the 'best' roadtrip in Canada? Is it one of those or am I thinking of something else

My Google fu is broken..

I'm looking for an android app that will put a website in a dedicated browser profile or container with its own history and sessions.

Like duplicate copies of firefox focus for a bunch of sites.


@ink_slinger Oh damn! Shows how much I know. I honestly have done 0 planning thus far, this is good knowledge to have!!

Thanks so much

@allan @ink_slinger ah wonderful. Thanks for this! I am just taking the Trans Canada route but I am not in a rush really. If there is something really great I don't mind detouring!

@ink_slinger hahaha thats good to hear! I don't know a thing about Saskatchewan but I've heard online that it is sort of one of those drive-by provinces where nothing is a must-see... is that true
