@thinkMoult ah didnt realise OSM integrated Mapillary rather than OSC. Interesting.

Thats good to know. Thanks.

@thinkMoult great work! Ive been using + from for a while.
Adding new POI and notes. Streetcomplete being another good app as well.

I was wondering how OSM has been doing the Street level pictures.

Just looked up OpenStreetCam and looks like OSC might have Facebook tracking in their app... reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/ does it offer Facebook login?

Happy to announce I have contributed over 75,000 photos to #openstreetcam, that's nearly 1,000km of footage. This is the (one of the) #opensource equivalents of Google Streetview. This was possible thanks to a Waylens dashcam sponsored by Telenav!

Computer vision and machine learning learns how to recognise street signs and traffic rules from this footage.

Check it out! openstreetcam.org/

I cant read French. But I guarantee you passed with no cells and are now stuck at 1 cell and dying constantly. The invisible dagger throwing guys are the worst and unless I get an impaler or boots I seem to always get hit.

The upcoming patch, if not already out, gives an update to the story and a new "mini" boss.

@madrox @gentoorebel @gairsty go based upon budget and their protection / battery capacity.

I probably wouldnt bother with the top end for a personal pc. And if you live in a "developed" country they your power supply should already be "clean" so battery backup and making sure you don't need any extra power boards should be your first choice. Then worry about anything else.


Hrm. Well then... I think its coffee time. :coffee:

@cassidyjames the amount of people that hate the current conglomeration that is 10 is something I would not put by the wayside.

This could cause a lot of people to stay within the "MS zone" while /the user/ is getting the benefits they might have seen from use KDE/GNOME on a *nix system.

If they can market right, I wouldnt put it past MS.

When websites say "use our app, it's much better", they mean better for them, not you.

If you want to help reforestation, it's important to know about a process called ecological succession. This is how nature does it.

The plants most people think of as weeds are very important in this. Botanically, they're known as pioneer species. They're tough, tenacious, and will grow even in unforgiving places.

Pioneers lay the groundwork for larger plants to gradually take over, eventually making a comfortable environment for climax species, like forest trees.

I was fortunate enough to run 3x as my rack(s) . They were and still are solid units.

Sure the battery died after 10 years in 2of3 but the replacement battery purchase went smooth as hell. They even took the old one away for free.

My only tip, Before you purchase work out what your Wattage is and do a solf calculation of what you load is going to be. You should be able to see how long after a power outage your systems are going to last for.

before before:
USB 3.0 - 5Gbit connection
USB 3.1 - 10Gbit connection

USB 3.1 gen 1 - 5Gbit connection
USB 3.1 gen 2 - 10Gbit connection

USB 3.2 gen 1- 5Gbit connection
USB 3.2 gen 2 - 10Gbit connection
USB 3.2 gen 2x2 - 20Gbit connection

what the heck, why not 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2


@polychrome I believe .org are great candidates for this. Maybe hit them up

@gunnar you could also use or which are static site generators. So they ingest markdown and output html. Then you can copy your html to whatever server you want. Even an service if you want to be anon.

Having the ability to write blogs in any editor and then saving the file to a directory and building and syncing makes all the difference for me.

(You do have to host but you could buy any stupidly cheap service as its just HTML)

This is my first post on this instance. So I guess its time for

I first started using Mastodon back in 2017. I tried a few Finnish 🇫🇮 instances but they slowly degraded to unusable status. So here I am at Fosstodon! I've followed a few Fosstodonians proviously and I see this community is active and hospitable. I'm also a FOSS nerd so I think I'll enjoy my stay here.

My interest include:
- FOSS (obviously)
- Gaming
- Degooglifying
- Alternatives to Android (excl. iOS)

@hrthu @gwenn @jedie @yunohost

gah! I cant edit toots! I goofed up.
Seems its a fork purely for SMS/MMS encryption. No internet needed.

Sorry folks nothing to see here please continue on your daily lives.
