A ways in we stopped at a Circle K to pick up some gas station chicken for a picknick. We had long since veered off the beltline proper though and cut through the woods. We got into a tiny bit of mud.

The various bridges and tunnels on the BeltLine trail are all painted with excellent murals done by local artists, and we passed by some of them.

Afterwards it was just a short jaunt along the BeltLine to the starting position where we hung out and had a drink or two while we waited for everyone to show up.

Then I transferred to the train. Art Center Station, serving Midtown, has some lovely carved murals on the walls that I don't know enough about.

I just got back from a group gravel ride! I only got a few pictures while we were stopped, but here they are 🧡

We all know the third R of the three Rs, RECYCLE. But don't forget the first two and more important Rs.

REDUCE............corporations to rubble.
REUSE............the resources they've been greedily hoarding for profit.

I learned that some people don't know that Social.Coop is accepting registrations. We are, so feel free to register or tell others they can.

I forget what it was called, but did anyone use that IRC client (I think it was an IRC client?) in like 1998 that let you create a 3d world and walk around in it and you'd join rooms when you entered a virtual room and you could talk to the people in it? I feel like Facebook's creepy metaverse is just that, except somehow it looks worse than that did in the 90s.

If anyone here is into or and also uses any compatible chat, join us over on bicycles@conference.samwhited.com and let's try to get a public chat room going! 🚲

Seriously though, who are all these people who look at cars and think "you know what works really well, never breaks, and also I have the same one for 10+ years? Computers and phones. I'd like my car to be more like that."

If any auto company execs are on the fediverse, I'd like to remind you that you can make an EV that's not also a smartphone for some reason. EVs can just have radios too.

Is there a website that has RSS feeds that just announce when the next season of TV shows will be released? I always end up 3 seasons behind because I've forgotten a show exists and I don't read things about TV shows to know when they're starting. I just want the information to come to me and I don't want to have to remember to go look it up once a year or so.

How is LaTeX somehow the only good document writing/formatting system, but also everyone who designed any part of it should never be allowed to touch computers ever again?

Would you be interested in a managed #Snikket / #XMPP server? I have a domain lying around so I'm willing to set it up and give out some invites 🎟️
