That's an awful lot of trees on the railways
@Gargron The fediverse is full of people who send you dog pictures on demand, yet you still get bored?!
...how about working on some long-open Mastodon issues? :P
@Gargron You could always pick a peertube instance and binge watch it's content. 🙂
Try this stupid game I made : idle-please.herokuapp.com
@Gargron Nap? Read an ebook? Code something for yourself, or for fun? Start writing your article? Stream videos of Malamutes and Huskies? 🐺
@Gargron reddit is always my go-to, or imgur with some good music/podcasts
@Gargron I travel between UK and Germany frequently, what data plan are you on? It's usually okay for me
@Gargron I do! It is...inexistent! :)
@Gargron People have no idea how much I'm paying for the useless garbage
@Gargron Arnhem-Cologne was fine but I know better than to use the onboard Wifi by now. Still it's almost always better to bring books and predownload movies.
@Gargron „mobile“ ... „data“ ... 😂
@Gargron your train is not too late ? We tried the DB to Hamburg here : late trains -> missed trainS etc
Even worse than our French SNCF :) but met interesting people !
@YannnSud i might have passed very close to you because I've seen trains going to Hamburg here haha
@Gargron ah no that was on 30th July :)
@Gargron Good opportunity for me to bring a feature request: Better UX for low internet speeds.
E.g. Ability to turn off picture download. (Although that might be a request better suited for #tusky)
Also, "Hoppla, ein Fehler ist aufgetreten" is not a satisfacting error message. I have bad reception and I know it. I just wanted to see if #mastodon works, no need to spam three error messages on my screen.
Also, mastodon is great, thanks for building it. 🙃
@hinterwaeldler you can turn off picture downloads in Tusky, uncheck the "show media preview" option
not sure if it was train or flixbus - but it's a real screenshot.
@Gargron Here in Munich, they’re testing free WiFi in suburban trains, but I think it will take decades to become usable and distributed to regional trains, too.
@Gargron I used both tethering and in train WiFi for decent intercontinental SSH.
Syncing data didn't move much, but most of the time remote shell was laggily usable.
@Gargron you can read my post about my thoughts on Mastodon and some other micro-blogging platform that gained a modicum of popularity. http://benedictfamily.org/2018/08/birds-and-mastodons-a-brief-comparision-of-twitter-and-mastodon/
I would be interested in your feedback and corrections.
@Gargron I would recommend a 2ds and Captain Toad
@jethro because of the storm last night
