We took a drive with a visitor to see a bunch of waterfalls within 30 minutes of home. Late November is still great sight-seeing time, apparently. You just need to dress for the weather.
Stick with the video until the end for some bonus footage.
Looking for recommendations for a self-hosted #socialnetwork to organize a voter group. Easy sign up, notifications of events, publishing of how-to articles and reports from what the group is going to do. Good mobile support would be great.
https://cosmic.voyage just celebrated it's first year in operation. In 365 days we had 283 user-submitted logs to the QEC Relay 001. Amazing job everyone!
I'm putting together the year one anthology now and I'm just giddy. I'm rereading everything as I go and there's some truly great stuff here.
If you haven't been reading now is a great chance to jump in.

Hey, #NaNoWriMo people!
If you have not noticed, they added the feature to fix log entries. In the "Progress Updates" there are now little trash cans to get rid of entries, and you can also "+ Add a new update" to add the corrected entry. This one does accept and use both the date and time.
Need to back date an entry? This is how to do it.
Proof-of-Concept of the new signalling system done without removing the old one.

As the official spokesperson of Generation X, I just want to quickly let all the #millennial, #xenials, gen-zs, and so on know that you guys can take over everything as soon as its convenient. We applaud your dismissal of boomers and want to preemptively agree that we're terrible at everything. Seriously, we've known that our whole lives. It's nothing new.
Just do the things and fix the shit.

(The mini-bar bags also feature designs that encourage consumers to alchemize their trash into origami art.)
I had originally shared a link to the host instance on peertube where this video is held, but Mastodon didn't magically turn it into a pretty embedded link. Maybe that peertube instance is running an older version? Anyway, I followed that user from my account on toobnix, then grabbed the toobnix link and look at the sexiness we now have! :D
oooh, what a gem i just ran across on peertube
