@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.
The Observer reports on the reopening of the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store:
I’ve consciously been trying to check social media — including Mastodon! — less the past few weeks. And it’s actually working! I’m checking Facebook maybe twice a day and Twitter less than that.
Ironically, I also started a Mastodon instance here in that timeframe. Don’t worry, I’m still checking in a couple times a day.
