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

@hfrazey @yeahno I just have to slide in here to say that there's a grassy-expanse subdivision in Orono where all the streets are named after trees, including TRUFFULA TRAIL! As if someone read The Lorax yet completely missed the point!

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

@t54r4n1 there's some dumb history there about needing to narrow the bridge right of way and that squeezing out what was supposed to be the bike corridor. The good news is that the planners know it's bad and I *think* even have concrete plans to improve it in the near-ish future.

Also they know that whole intersection stinks and have medium-concrete plans to reconfigure it in the maybe-somewhat-near future.

Also the BEST NEWS is ✌️ Min! Hi! Line! ✌️

@lawremipsum why would you click on a link in an email you didn't request and weren't expecting?!

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

Comments accepted through October 25th. It's not the best format, but you should look and comment anyhow.

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

@t54r4n1 "500: An unexpected error occurred" maybe? That would actually make more sense than what I'm remembering.

@t54r4n1 @lawremipsum either of you happen to have a screenshot of this? I'm trying to remember what they look like… I think they just say "500" and nothing else, no words? I think I found the relevant code but I don't have time today to set up a dev environment and try to reproduce an error condition. Hoping I can just wing it.

@hfrazey taken out of context this tweet is just a good paradox

@james buddy your payment is getting to experience this glorious future that Google is leading us into

@divergentdave Yeah I saw some discussion about that on the GitHub ticket. Now after seeing the icon in the wild, I think that would add value and be very intuitive.

@james I believe this is the value prop of Google Now

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.
