@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

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

@britvulcan @lawremipsum based on pages at other mastos, for example tenforward.social/@chosafine/1 I don't think the description ever shows up on web.

@lawremipsum I think it's nice. Relatively unobtrusive. Definitely would be cool to have it display the text on click.

@hfrazey @firewally I really love that the new Franklin bridge exists to set an example of how good a Mississippi bridge can be. Gives us a bar to aim for on Lake & Ford.

I mean, make no mistake, people will LOSE THEIR MINDS about any plan that affects traffic lanes on Ford, but it's a start at least.

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 and Neighbors for More Neighbors. 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.
