Imzy was a pretty weak site though. I used it a bit. Mostly when alt-right types describe websites as `hugboxes` they're just upset about not being allowed to be racist, homophobic, or transphobic - but Imzy was the closest thing I ever saw to a genuine `hugbox`. In the dozen or so times I visited the website I saw very little genuine debate or discussion. The design was also annoying - ironically, not too dissimilar to the much-criticised reddit redesign - so I found little reason to become a regular there.

That's a real shame... I can totally understand that though.

Interstellar is just beautiful every single time. A top-3 film for me. Star wars is of course a perennial favourite. I also have an unwavering fondness for The Truman Show, which I can't quite explain.

I'm too young to have any memory of the 2000 election - besides being British, my age at that point was still counted in months - however this comment drove home (for perhaps the first time) how much recent world history hinges on the smallest things. It's a 'for the want of a nail' scenario of the purest form but one that played out on the very highest of stages. Crazy shit happens, indeed.

I enjoyed this article, the polygon generation was particularly interesting and although I've read a fair few articles on generating this kind of thing that concept was new to me. Thanks for posting!

I watch motorsport. All the time. If not that, I listen to an awful lot of podcasts.

DC-3  ·  1347 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Adjusting the mechanism of the hubwheel to match the growth of Hubski

Thanks for the response. I understand all the views you've raised and agree that right now it's not a pressing issue. I think it's a valuable part of hubski that there's a lot of importance attached to a circledot and this dynamic should continue to form a part of the community.

If you look through here you can see a wide range. There are a variety of binding methods but I've never had any issue with the staples.

Because it makes the hub wheel redundant. You've just invented Reddit.

Brady's channels are great, and he's hilarious on Hello Internet.

But Is it Webscale?

DC-3  ·  1349 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski, what are your side projects?

Badged because I truly respect people who do things like this. Thank you for your kindness, I'm sure many will benefit from it for years to come.

DC-3  ·  1349 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Does Hubski ever ban users?

Worth saying. I hope it's not a feature I have to use but I appreciate the thought you guys have put into this.

Keep us posted!

I know this was a while ago but I love my rhodias. Great design, great size, great ink friendly paper. I carry 2 everywhere.

Pan African - Papua New Guinea?

I would dispute that...

The air crash investigation special episode 'Crash of the Century' is well worth a watch if you're interested.

A fascinating wiki list of flags which share this peculiar property can be found here. The Bulgarian city flag is particularly attractive and eye catching.
