I resisted updating this, but decided to make some other small modifications in addition to updating the number.

How big is 500,000?

This seems like the right solution to me. Instead of making targets and filling out maps, subsidies end up based on actual people signing up and staying with the service. Perhaps we'll even see some competitors in these rural areas from small businesses.

My new found knowledge is making me drunk with power! I have put an icon on the @conservancy room on Matrix too!

<evil laugh />

For those following along at home, most of the issues were permissions. The IRC bridge gives Matrix permissions based on IRC permissions. So you need to be op'd on IRC to reconfigure the Matrix room.

Now, in all its glory: matrix.to/#/#inkscape-devel:ma

Someone (thank you!) mapped the IRC bridge for on Freenode over to the Matrix room matrix.to/#/#inkscape:matrix.o and gave it a nice name and an icon.

I'd like to do the same thing for -devel but I can't figure out how to do it. Anyone have pointers?

Hoping they paid off the lawyers, the biggest winners in any class action lawsuit, with in-game currency as well.

The @inkscape About Screen contests never fail to impress me. So many great entries! I want this one on a t-shirt!

The "Do not track" marker was a useful way of signaling websites your intents, but today, we need a "No, I don't want to sign up for your streaming service" marker.

Learned about JMAP today, whose website frustratingly doesn't answer the question on whether it was named because J comes after I in the alphabet and it is a potential successor to IMAP.

Humorous typo in the Banggood deals flyer this morning.

Royal Photographic Society has released all issues older than two years online. 165 years worth! Love to see journals doing this to make history available.

Enjoyed using Mailspring as mail client for a while, but even more excited now that it is fully Open Source. Hope that it can continue to grow an improve now that it's fully GPLv3.

Today I learned that 4th graders can get a free annual National Parks Pass. Very cool. Makes it easier to get outdoors during a pandemic!

Stopped at the largest convenience store in the world, Buc-ee's New Braunfels, TX. I'll let you decide where largest ends and convenience begins.

Paris Hilton makes this story feel like click bait, but I think her shorter "PodPosts" sound like a good idea.

Great to see the OpenTTD folks going to Steam to let more people enjoy their work. Hope to see more Open Source projects meeting people where they are instead of only using traditional open source distribution methods.

Supporter of the transition to EVs, but I don't think we're taking into account the increase in weight enough. This will also cause more road wear, so I think we'll need to start taxing/registering base on weight. Also, gas taxes can't pay for roads.
