#endegelaende is gonna be busy tomorrow...
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 http://inter4.aaschool.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/element-1.jpg
(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 🤷 )

Also, because the UK uses first-past-the-post voting (💩) you may want to look at what other people typically vote to not 'waste' yours: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:United_Kingdom_Parliamentary_constituencies_established_in_1997
Predictit market for brexit by 01 Nov collapses to all time low https://www.predictit.org/markets/detail/5429/Will-the-UK-officially-exit-the-European-Union-by-Nov-1
Do not think that this will sink BoJo! It could, but he'll spin it around like "I did all I could, brought a nice deal to the table but those other MPs blocked me and the will of the people"
1 day til the next extinction rebellion! ⏰ Starting Monday 7th October there will mobilizations in over 60 cities 🌐 https://rebellion.earth/international-rebellion/
I know a lot of Mastodoners are critical of #XR, 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 😺
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.
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.
I'm finally gonna do it: read the W3C RDF 1.1 primer https://www.w3.org/TR/2014/NOTE-rdf11-primer-20140624/
Listening to the Prodigy.
Wow! Did my first #SPARQL query today and feeling like a weeezard 🧙
Kind of like writing a formula in a spreadsheet, except that you can just use #wikidata (or another existing database)
Great instructions on the Wikidata page: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:SPARQL_query_service/A_gentle_introduction_to_the_Wikidata_Query_Service
