From the Netherlands I take the train to:

  • Paris (HSL)
  • London (HSL)
  • Belgium
  • Austria (night)
  • Germany (want to try night)
  • Poland (via Vienna or Berlin, usually fly back)

The infra is still a bit lacking but when I visited I found the drivers to be surprisingly decent with bikes & peds.

Management is probably also mouse jiggling…

Grew up in Boulder.

Still hoping for a train from the airport within my lifetime.

I’m sure all the neighbors will be stoked being awoken by a drone at 1 am 😂

Personally, I prefer a quiet neighborhood over faster delivery.

I’m pretty sure its only value is sentimental

Nah man, also great aesthetic value, that is a beauty. Makes me miss my old cruiser.

Social-right can be quite attractive if all the “left” has to offer is neoliberal BS…

Switching to a pedal assist bike could help with the range of you are open to expending some of your own energy.

Imagine we all pooled our resources to fund medical research through taxes only for private companies to exploit the technology and jack up the prices…

A brain implant for rich people isn’t necessarily “for us”.

I think OP was referring to HGVs and not pickups.

It was a bit to bumpy for the computer so we brought that with the metro.

Our washing machine broke last week and the first thought was to buy a replacement but I wanted to at least attempt a repair first.

The machine would still fill and empty water, but the dishes remained dry and there was a burning smell. So, I unplugged it, tipped it over and popped open the bottom cover.

Aside from the controller, the dishwasher was very simple: a drainage pump, a circulation pump, a heating element and some solenoid valves. A multimeter showed the (main suspect) circulation pump still had continuity which narrowed the search down to the pump’s starting capacitor. Seven euros and a few days later and it’s back in action!

The simple fix really gave me a sense of joy and satisfaction. It feels great to extend the use of something that I already have rather than need to consume more.

Can anyone relate? Any good repair stories?

I’m a big fan of the right to repair movement.
