Next diary: Manager and issues from the project point of view

openstreetmap.org/user/qeef/di

It's nice to get inspired by the similar software, isn't it?

BTW the _merge_ functionality available in mappy.damn-project.org/ is inspired by some discussion related to HOT TM, too. My favorite part of the _make merge available_ story is that I've implemented it in 10 hours. Since the decision I will do it till the merge commit.

"[...] Facebook sent me a cease-and-desist letter. The company demanded that I take down the tool. It also told me that it had permanently disabled my Facebook account ... Pointing to a provision in its terms of service that purports to bind even former users of Facebook, Facebook also demanded that I never again create a tool that interacts with Facebook or its many other services in any way."

Hi @weeklyOSM weeklyosm.eu/archives/14876 Just small note -- It's more like " project get inspired by ..." than "Get inspired by the damn project ..."

I have not much to inspire you by, but sometimes interesting ideas to get (myself) inspired by.

Bad wording for diary entries on my side, though. Sorry.

I was thinking about dark mode for the project clients, particularly for client.damn-project.org/ and mappy.damn-project.org/ at least.

You know what? Try the links in Firefox with Owl add-on switched on. Howgh.

2489. Bad Map Projection: The Greenland Special 

title text: The projection for those who think the Mercator projection gives people a distorted idea of how big Greenland is, but a very accurate idea of how big it SHOULD be.

I just noticed that #Gmaps are being extra, uhrm, "helpful" these days. The apps I use that utilize their location services now show auto-magically renamed streets.

So, N. Domingo, for example becomes "North Domingo", where the the "N" actually stands for Nicanor.

Truth. I didn't like the "interaction with ticket only". Even for chat. SotM was online, wasn't it? So why to limit the communicatio?

This weekend is the global conference will take place online ( 2021.stateofthemap.org/ ), and I've helped them set up a mastodon⇄twitter cross poster, so there'll be lots of fedi toots from @sotm

Not sure why should be license violation -- have you read the Terms of Service?

docs.github.com/en/github/site

It's written there: "... or otherwise analyze it on our servers ...".

Well, I'm not a lawyer, but it's kind of clear to me.
