lain: *makes pleroma*
almost everyone using pleroma: *uses mastodon ui*

Looking through the stats after my ride, 12.78 km total, got the battery down to 29% (198.8 Wh used). So, 15.56 Wh/km (I was doing a lot of full throttle and hill climbing in the last part of the ride, and had a headwind for most of it).

I'll take it.

That does mean that on my commute (roughly 16 km round trip), I'll want to bring the charger, though - on paper I *should* be good for the round trip, but better play it safe, especially because there's a fair amount of climbing.

Hey, finally got some good scooting weather.

Observations while I'm sipping on some coffee:

Weak regen is actually really hard to ride smoothly, because there's a brake microswitch that, a couple moments after you touch the brake lever, gives you max regen. Strong regen is much easier to control, as it's all on the throttle.

Hills, with my fat (115-120 kg?) ass, lol no. And, kicking under power gets front wheelspin.

The battery is at 67% after 6.36 km - at 280 Wh, that's 14.5 Wh/km.

we shamed people into not using WYSIWYG HTMl editors, maybe it's no surprise we have Facebook and poorly made pages with heaps of JS 🤔

My buddy's AS/400 9406-170, running OS/400 V4R4, and in particular, OfficeVision/400, IBM's office automation software for their line of minicomputers - it's a bit nicer than ALL-IN-1, if you remember that!
