I think my attempt to turn on WebGL has borked my PC

'course my problem with /finishing/ things can be a hindreance here!

I should quit my job so that I have time to just write free software mappy stuff the whole time

Yeah I know about Gnome Maps, that's what I mean, but yay that doesn't work now for me. (Plus it's only mapbox maps)

Maybe instead of all these complicated Javascript browser based map slippy map browsers, I should make a desktop based map tile browser.

πŸ€” And now I seem to have lost the ability to drag the map on osm.org....

Hmmm... Silly computers

How great, doesn't work on my . Apparently I don't have WebGL

People in should understand why self hosted open, non corporate, social media is good. Cmon!

Maybe when I get back from I'll start regularly summarising the fediverse on the diary system so people can know how cool we are

As much I love and use computers and a keyboard, sometimes you just need to scribble on some paper

I'm a long time person and even I need to sit down with a pen & paper to make sure I calculate slippy map tiles numbers properly. (I was off by a power of 2 before!)

@amolith The link to "Organizations, NGOs & Associations" on communitywiki.org/trunk is a dead link BTW

Want to help make () more useful for new people interested in ?

The is several lists of people who post about a topic here on the fediverse. It's a good way for new people to get started by finding people who share their interest.

And now there's a list for OpenStreetMap folk! πŸ™‚ If you toot a lot about and would like to help new people, request to be added to the list. Or use it to find other OSMers to follow.
