I need a #NAS at home. Any recommendations for a device to buy?
I already have several 3½" harddisks, and I want to be able to root/flash it and install stock Debian/Ubuntu on it. Some some and quiet obv.

I would like to think I'm clever, but I just cannot figure out how to use LimeSurvey

When you upgrade @StreetComplete to the latest version which includes the new "check that the opening hours haven't changed" feature. 🙂

And done with the final day of the Foundation Board retreat/screen2screen meeting. Another productive, informative and interesting day. It's always nice to chat with the rest of the board, we get on well.

Like earlier in the year, I feel like I have a lot of tasks to do. There is no end of stuff to do

It's a little tiring, cause it's all so long, but I'm finding it productive & useful. 🙂

Want to clean up part of the map but want something a bit more familiar than what #HOTOSM is offering? I'm working on a TIGER and Building cleanup right now for #Oklahoma. It's a bit ambitiously sized, but I'm also trying to improve the #OpenStreetMap quality in rural areas significantly in addition to urban environs.

How many people remember that #StreetComplete is a thing? If you're #geocaching or playing #Pokemon Go, you might consider adding StreetComplete to the mix to help improve #OpenStreetMap while you're at it!

Lately, when I enable the Bing aerial imagery, it cases to hang & freeze. Does that happen to anyone else?

I've been doing for the past few days and it's been a really neat way to get into improving #OpenStreetMap little by little. Tonight I sat down to add ten nodes to a river, and ended up posting up over 1000 changed nodes just now. In addition to greatly improving the way for the Ibina River in the DRC in Africa, I added over 50km of previously-unmapped tributaries while I was at it, and tidied up a few nearby villages:

I'm now up to 9 days in a row, and 27 points. Onward and upward :)

Many thanks to @Doudouosm for introducing me to it, it's been very effective! #osmstreak #mapping #maps

Have you ever thought “Gee I wonder if you took data, and coloured the image based on the distance to the nearest building?”

No? What kind of person _are_ you? 😛
(red=0→1km, orange=1→2km, yellow=2→5km,green=5→50km, blue=>50km)

If you were making a map of of North Ameriuca (MX+US+CA), what Spatial Reference System would you use?
I'd like 'equal area', but mostly something that 'looks good'

The 14th Annual General Meeting of the Foundation will be held online on Saturday, 12 December 2020 at 16:00 UTC.

Someone made a recursive relation in which broke our Nominatim servers. Hilariously, it was in Chernobyl.
Here's how to fix

One of these days I will figure out what the @weeklyOSM form submission fields mean.

Until then, I'll just copy/paste the same thing in all the boxes. 😛😛😛
