Bah, fed up with #Windows10 During an unprompted update / system “maintenance” all of my Start Menu shortcuts disappeared. I’ve had to create new shortcuts manually for each. which has taken ages! (Note to self: must back up the Start Menu folders in case this happens again!)
Here’s a (rather niche!) micro.blog post I wrote for my local cycling group about how to merge separate GPS-recorded rides into one: How to merge GPX tracks easily https://microblog.raretrack.uk/2019/01/19/how-to-merge.html

#WhyIStayOnMastodon I hope that in the coming years the advantages of small communities will be recognized. The Fediverse is for me like a small collection of many exciting pubs where like-minded people come together. Such places have the potential to create subcultures, create their own language, own jokes etc.
To refer to my previous mail: Communities like the Restrealität (oldschool community for Berlin techno lovers) are exactly those subcultures I would like to see here.
Trying Mastodon Auto Share to see if I can POSSE from WP to Mastodon. If this appears, it's working!

Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
