@george TIL the aadl gives us access to Chilton repair guides! This is amazing
Here's a fun TIL: Because the ratio of terms in the Fibonacci sequence approaches phi, and because phi is close to the ratio of km to miles, you can approximate conversion between distances with adjacent Fibonacci numbers.
So 2 km ≈ 1 mile, 3 km ≈ 2 miles, 5 km ≈ 3 miles, 8 km ≈ 5 miles, 13 km ≈ 8 miles, etc, etc

A big advantage of Mastodon is the ability communities have to set and enforce a code of acceptable content. To that end, I've always planned to write one for this site.
As a starting point, what do you think about https://gist.github.com/cdzombak/f56d688298e9b522a3d0ac0f6b013a29 ? It's basically the same as the CoC on the original & largest Mastodon site (https://mastodon.social/about/more), plus encouragement to use content tags.

Experimenting with accounts on two instances, like on the birdsite.
This account/instance for local stuff. It’s like a neighborhood with all my neighbors.
@dzombak for other, online stuff.
We’ll see how it works! This Mastodon thing is one big experiment.
Missed #a2council tonight (doing bike things instead). Did this site hold up okay?
the past decade has taught me over and over that if we don't pay for our services they will eventually be monetized with ads. I'm extremely open to paying for services that provide value now. Will continue to donate to @instance to keep the server going for a2mi.social, paying for feedbin, etc.
