@eurobubba I’m in car 255, the first one on the train. Behind it are 256, 257, and so on. There are a dozen or so people in the corridor wondering how to find their seat reservations in car 254.

The Parkinson’s story is Project Veritas–level BS. And the doctor’s name is Cannard?! Come on, they’re just trolling us now.

@numericcitizen Wait till November before deciding that; Trump II is far from a done deal. If it does happen, though, I’m with you, getting out before the inauguration and not coming back.

May have found the place for Coffee Shop Office Hours in Prague. Stately Viennese-style hi-society cafés are not really the place to pull out the laptop & get to work. Lots of little hole-in-the-wall coffee shops but those can be a bit cramped. This one has elbow room, good coffee, nice vibe.

I’ve been coming here for over 35 years and I’m still discovering corners of Prague that are completely new to me.

Wore a sleep mask so the very early light this time of year wouldn’t wake me up. It didn’t work.

@manton Gorgeous! I loved riding the Cumbres & Toltec last year, will have to check out the Durango & Silverton next time I’m up in that part of the country. There’s a steam railway up in Germany not far past the border that’s on my bucket list too. I’ll definitely post pics here if I make it up there.

What happens if he’s in prison and he’s elected? He was convicted by the state of New York, can’t pardon himself. Does he exercise the office from prison?

@pratik Thanks, I suppose it makes sense, but I was expecting separate blogs to behave like entirely separate accounts. I’ll probably keep the two blogs I’ve already set up as they are, since they’re both “personal”, but I probably won’t end up moving my “business” blog here.

@eurobubba @help Shouldn’t cross-posting be automatic? My post only showed up on Masto and Blueski after I cross-posted manually from the Micro web interface.

@pratik It’s a bit of a kludge, but you could create separate desktop wallpaper for each space, with a name embedded if you want.

@danielpunkass Yup, likewise support staff (at least as of yesterday afternoon) studiously avoiding giving a straight answer when asked if they’re aware of these widely reported issues.
