I don't know how I ended up on this page of experimental architecture, but I'm glad to have found how many turrets and cloches there were in the Maginot Line inter4.aaschool.ac.uk/wp-conte

(The Maginot Line is a huge line of defensive structures the French built to deter German invasion after WW1. Sadly for the French, the Nazis decided to go around it ๐Ÿคท )

I know a lot of Mastodoners are critical of , rightly so. I'm not gonna defend everything that's been done under the brand. Yet it's mostly good!

I warmly recommend everyone to try for themselves: you'll meet lovely humans and won't accidentally find yourself getting arrested.

So come on! I'll be at Berlin if anyone wants to catch up ๐Ÿ˜บ

Great turnout and atmosphere (no pun intended) at the today!

And what a diverse crew : (ofc) but also vegans coopers and so many more. Notable union presence which I was very happy about.

If you don't use WPS push button to connect to new WiFi routers, I highly recommend it!

Select the option in advanced WiFi preferences on your device (I'm using Lineage OS) then push the WPS button on the router. Typically a light will start blinking on the router and it will then connect on some seconds.

Has saved me a lot of time instead of entering horrible codes and it works even if the owners have changed the password.

Upright-recumbent tandem spotted in ! Ridden by a French couple; they said they love it and have been riding it extensively for 5 years. Sadly too big to fit on buses and trains and repairs can be tricky.

Casting of a concrete support at Dunbar train station for platform expansion.

Concrete is amazing, kind of like 'cold' lava: liquid rock you can pour and then sets. It's 'traditional' too, with some formulations (Pozzolana) being used in ancient Rome.

It's also really badly recycled, takes up loads of space in landfill and emitting loads of Co2 net. We need to use less of it.

Wow! Did my first query today and feeling like a weeezard ๐Ÿง™

Kind of like writing a formula in a spreadsheet, except that you can just use (or another existing database)

Great instructions on the Wikidata page: wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:SPA
