#OpenStreetMap community recently looked at how #Crimea was mapped in #OSM and a working group decided that it should be included as part of Russia only, since they have physical control.

This seems to have really touched a nerve with some people...


Oh apparently networking on (18.04) servers is managed with now? That's another thing I have to learn and figure out.

Why yes wget, I would like you to print one line for every 50KB of this 70GB file I'm downloading. That'll really help my logs.

RT @Ciaraioch@twitter.com: Nothing quite sums up the gentle fatalism of the psyche than replacing "Goodbye" with "Good luck"


Does anyone have any resources, research, or examples of how "professional", "civil" or "hostile" have been used against marginalised people? Is this a big thing?

When it comes to "women in tech" with /#inclusivity, I often see calls for civility or complaints about hostility.

So which is it? Does requiring civil/professional actions and banning hostility help or hinder diversity (in tech/FLOSS)?

Apparently mince pies are just mincemeat in a pie. And you can just buy mincemeat. So that's easy.

I'm going to try to make mince pies for Christmas. I haven't seen them in Germany, and it could be a nice treat to give people. Plus they're tasty.

I am trying to explain Irish addresses to Germans. A client wants some list of postcodes in Ireland.
He's not going to have a good time.

Anxiety is fun because sometimes you think your entire life is a lie but it turns out you were just hungry

Is there any such thing as a libre e-reader? Looking for a #Kindle alternative.

Who ever thought algorithms for clipping polygons were so complicated and varied?

“They have nothing in their whole imperial arsenal that can break the spirit of one Irishman who doesn’t want to be broken.”

Just look at the voluble hatred towards an irish player, because he refuses to wear a poppy on display in this video. Scum barely begins to cover it.

Many Code of Conduct in the FLOSS/techie world deal with sexism and such. But I wonder if it's worth expanding them to include issues with corporate control? 🤔

It can be tricky to use a website for adding details to #OpenStreetMap, since the site might be up, but the venue closed. Pubs & nightclubs usually have photos or posts on their Facebook or Twitter accounts, so you can confirm they are still active.

I hope to make #OpenStreetMap the best open database of #LGBTQ venues!
