@jon @tml @xtaran hmm, haven't seen much luggage racks on night trains. I thought you always had to keep in the cabin?

Trenitalia seeking more business in France

Good trains. Sensible company. Thoughtful offer. I wish them well! And some international trains - to Genova and Madrid - are being considered, as well as operation of 16 carriage trains to Lyon

If we want people to refill reusable bottles, it needs to be easier than buying a bottle of drink. That means a) not needing a bloody app to find where you can get water 2) water taps/fountains in the well walked passages of the station so you can fill as you go past and don't have to detour. iii) not have to ask someone to fill your bottle for you.

@quixoticgeek yeah, did not manage to fill up at Amsterdam cs, even when asking around.

Ready for interrail/bike journey! I think, I now hear my bike needs a cover for certain french trains.😅

So cycled across paris on the Brompton, 20kg backpack on my back and no assist. Quite happy with my 44 tooth choice.

@wmd@chaos.social avatar

It's also about the max I'd be happy to do with backpack on back. Just didn't want to pack/unpack for the ikea.

New things on this trip:

  • Travel with a bike
  • Travel via paris Montparnasse
  • Take the grand-ligne south on the west side. (Still haven't done a day train that goes over Orleans)
  • Cycle through paris

Todo (on this trip):

  • Cycle through the pyrenees with a serious climb.
  • Cross the can franc - bedous border.

Let's say I wanted to move my personal server from Arch to

Are there more modern webservers than nginx in 2024 that you can recommend from personal experience? Or is it still a good choice?

And are there alternatives to a dovecot + postfix + rspamd mail server?

Or calendar servers you like better than Radicale?

@wmd@chaos.social avatar

@blinry still an apache fan, which I'd call more modern and more feature complete than nginx. :)

Test ride! 2 Two times 20km. Already carried it down like this 6 flights of stairs .

(Edit forgot picture)

wmd,
@wmd@chaos.social avatar

I think the backpack is about 10kg at the moment. No issues with bridges yet in 2- gear. I think 20kg is going to work out. Stability of backpack could be better but required tweaking.

Smooth sailing, wind in my back, cruising in 3+ gear.

Very happy with the egrip upgrade.

wmd,
@wmd@chaos.social avatar

Side wind, still going well. No electric assist. Had a short race with a Zodiak, their idea...

wmd,
@wmd@chaos.social avatar

21.8km 1h15m very easy ride, couple of breaks.

Way back will be against the wind and suspect i will be using the assist.

@wmd@chaos.social avatar

Cycling back with a light head wind,, testing assist. :)

wmd,
@wmd@chaos.social avatar

Going full support. Has quite a kick, but already lost 1/5th.

wmd,
@wmd@chaos.social avatar

1h10m to get back. 3/5 leds on so between 1/2 and 3/5 of battery left after 22km.

Pretty convinced can do 40km on full power on flat terrain with a little bit of head wind. Impressive.
