AALLLLLLRIGHT YOU LUBBERS.

, the Java server for Fosstodon and the Fediverse at large, will be open as of NOW.

This is (as of now) a 100% vanilla Minecraft 1.16.* survival server. Server plugins are awaiting review and will be minimally divergent.

Everyone that's asked to be a part of it has been whitelisted if they provided their Mojang username. If you attempt to join on this URL and can't get in, then PM me here with your MC Java name.

Etymological weirdness:

First, “grocer” was “one who sold things by the gross (in large quantities)”—basically a wholesaler. Then the things they sold became known as “grocery”

Since much of what was sold was foods and spices, “grocery” drifted to mainly mean “foods”. And the people who sold foods, even though it was mostly in quantities for personal use, were the purveyors of grocery, so… “grocers”

This reinforced itself in US English, so that the stuff you buy at a grocer was called “groceries”. And then the place you buy them—a store of groceries—becomes a “grocery store” (regional; some places use “market”)

What a lovely little tornado!

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!
