@quixoticgeek are you familiar with Stigler's Law of Eponymy, which was discovered by Robert K. Merton?

@cypnk NYC Resistor is prepared in case of Fortunato, in case of an event, in case of a foggy laser, and in case of witnessing.

@vaurora as @quixoticgeek mentioned: be sure to plan some trips out of the city sometime! there's so much to do buiten de grens.

@FrankEndrullat our stairs are a tight spiral, so the sofa (and the rest of the furniture) came in through the windows. The movers used a lift truck rather than the hoist, since it is much more efficient if you're moving more than one item.

@praseodym that would be fine (although still absurd considering the effort HBO took to sign up European customers), except that the PS4 and LG HBO Max apps no longer function.

This month HBO's new corporate parent rebranded it as MAX and locked-out non-US subscribers until "early 2024", right on the heels of a world-wide expansion of the former HBO Max streaming service.

VPN back to the US is probably the easiest way...

I've tried several solutions from
Mapertive "works", although it's Mono and really slow on this size data set. It took around ten minutes to produce this 16k x 12k image and I can't figure out how to control which POI are included.
