I'm sorry, but I just can't drink gin. It's such a Brit drink.

It's just a by-product of the industrial revolution!

Though, I do like the term โ€œgenderfluidโ€ for myself, it's less... agressive? than โ€œgenderqueerโ€.

I would use the term โ€œqueerโ€ to partially describe myself, and there's lots of flavours of the term that I really like. ๐Ÿ™‚

But I recognize that it hasn't been fully reclaimed, and that to many people that's the term that was used to insult against, and hate on, them. So to them, that's a term of hate. I recognize the validity, and respect, the fact that โ€œqueerโ€ is not for them.

State of the Map South East Europe (#SotMSEE) is over. And once again I am energized by the #OpenStreetMap community. The Kosovan & Albanian people I meet via #OSM always seem so nice and are doing cool stuff with FLOSS

It's a pub with a big no smoking sign, and ashtrays on the tables (and people smoking). Something tells me people in Kosovo aren't as big in rules and people in Germany...

I'm heading to Kosovo for #SotMSEE (State of the Map, South East Europe), a regional #OpenStreetMap event. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you want some #OpenStreetMap stickers, please feel free to get in touch. Over the next little while I'll get a more proper system in place.

(BTW the people/groups requested swag, I'm not just randomly sending OpenStreetMap merch to random places)

I want #OpenStreetMap to be better with promotional material, and I've been on a sticker vibe lately. So today I sent a packet of stickers to Bangladesh, and later fly to Kosovo and hand deliver some more.

open source, exhaustion 

I continue to move closer and closer to being done with open source, as a movement, entirely.

I am not seeing umbrella organisations that actually "do public good," and have lost faith in the ones I worked with previously. (HINT HINT)

I am seeing more burnt-out developers than I should who are dropping out of tech, incapable of supporting their families that way without murdering their consciences via substance abuse, prescription or otherwise.


a fun tip for happy children: you can remove anti-homeless bars by unscrewing the โ€œsecurity screwsโ€ with a security torx such as the ones linked below this post

Doctor: what seems to be the issue?

Me: my clitoris is swollen and my vagina is inside out

Dr: thatโ€™s a penis and testicles

Me: yeah thatโ€™s the problem

Remove the annoying โ€œa/โ€ & โ€œb/โ€ prefixes from diff with this command:

git config --global diff.noprefix true

There are only five songs.
1. I drank loads last night and I regret nothing
2. I met a lovely fair girl and she was fair and lovely
3. We will fight the Brits for ever and ever and ever.
4. I have left Ireland and shall never be happy again.
5. Those fucking fairies.

For work, I'm mostly a sysadmin, so I'm always SSHing into other machines and doing things. vim is installed everywhere, so that's handy

After all these years, is it time to move away from vim? Maybe I'll try out neovim. ๐Ÿค”

At this weekend #OpenStreetMap hack weekend in @geofabrik
I worked on a new idea for โ€œdelayedโ€ OSM replication, where changes aren't sent on immediately. This could allow proper community based anti-vandalism.
