Voted in the Dutch elections today! Ended up voting for the Green-Left party. From 9pm on I'm gonna grab some popcorn and watch the polls roll in. Anyone up for IRC tonight?

edit: me and a few friends also made our educated guesses for the division of parliamentary seats. Yellow is our average. This is what a splintered democracy looks like, in case anyone was wondering. ;)

The national bird of the Netherlands is apparently the Black-Tailed Godwit. Gaze upon it and feel the patriotism welling in your chest.

We call it a grutto. It used to be on our ƒ100 bills:

American bills need wildlife.

I'm certain that this is what you had in mind:

Not that wild.

Say what you want about the man, but the design looks very good.

What kind of time are you thinking of IRC? I never find the time to go online but I might be able to tonight!

veen  ·  272 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Somewhere after 9:30pm here, which is 8:30 in London and 4:30 East Coast time.

I should be able to go on IRC then!

Cool!

I am trying to test my connection. Is the irc SSL certificate outdated / am I doing this right? mk

rjw  ·  272 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Hmm, it works for me

mk  ·  272 days ago  ·  link  ·  

forwardslash?

I just logged on ok.

veen  ·  272 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Moar settings just to be sure. SSL + Nickserv right?

This link isn't working for you?

https://hubski.com/irc

For those of us who would rather hit it with Colloquy or the like, that link is the bane of our existence.

Hubski-hosted IRC craps out with like eight real humans in it and the interface often hates your name. Plus the fact that there are about nine idlers in there that have been idlers in there since 2013 is exasperating.

Blank screen. I think that's because I have Java disabled by default?

kleinbl00  ·  272 days ago  ·  link  ·  

So... lunch. ;-) I'll see if I can check in.

veen  ·  272 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Text me if you're earlier!

    Anyone up for IRC tonight?

I'll probably be online. Ping me when you're there.
