Ain't nobody does passive-aggressive sarcasm like Minnesotans on Nextdoor 😹

Hey local peeps, if you encounter a bike lane in Minneapolis this winter that is unplowed or otherwise poorly maintained, could you take photos and send them to me? I'm gonna try to collect some documentation and see if I can get it to the right people.

Alas, it would seem that I have yet again abandoned Mastodon. I feel bad about it because I believe in the federation and I want to support a healthy community, but I just don't feel a strong desire for extensive social media in my life right now. I so successfully purged FB and Twitter long ago that diving back in feels like sacrificing too much of my time and attention, which are in short supply right now. I may be back someday, but for now it's probably gonna be only very sporadic.

Just poppin' back in to say YYYYEEEEEEEEEAAAAAASSSSSSSS

Hope everyone is enjoying this Mailchimp server outage as a reminder that every link in your inbox is now hostage to a private corporation thanks to marketers' desire to track your every move

I passive-aggressively filled out the Hiawatha visioning form with a bunch of things that are incompatible with a golf course: form.jotform.com/composidore/l

Hey MSP friends, check out the first set of plans for the future of the River Gorge: surveymonkey.com/r/9Y7PTCQ

This papalo was sold to me as an "herb" but it is looking a lot more like a "tree"

Unbelievably, I have two different client projects right now that both use time zones incorrectly and both need to be un-fucked, probably by me. Come on, giant meteor, blow us back to the Stone Age already.

As a programmer, what's even less fun than dealing with time zones? Dealing with inherited production code that handles time zones incorrectly 😩

Today's small blessing: living close enough to St. Paul to be able to spectate on Nextdoor as people lose their minds about city trash collection 🍿 :flag_stp: 🔥

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.

Recurring contributors: @hfrazey, @brennen@mastodon.social, @Jennybellium, @densetsu, @iangreenleaf, @britvulcan, @joeld, @yeahno, @paulference, @billmk, @brandon, @benjotron, @june @wafflesoup and anonymous.

If you're a current Twitter user, here is a tool that can help Twitter friends find each other on Mastodon.
