@kensanata Some problems here: often, everybody has to leave on the same hour (that's why we have rush hours), so that scenario can't work for most people.

And even if it did, if my personal observations are correct, very few people buy and use cars because they need them, at least in places with proper transport.

Many keep cars b/c prestige or b/c it "frees" them to go anywhere they want. Many want large cars not b/c they go offroad or need space, but b/c it looks "cool" and/or "strong".

That is why I always vote against car projects if I can. Sure, it is a pain for car owners. It’s a pain for people depending on car owners. But apparently this pain is the only thing that pushes public policies towards better public transport infrastructure and that changes the way we live. We will need to work closer to home. Go spend holidays where all the tourists are. Walk more. That’s the way forward that doesn’t seem to end in the car apocalypse.

curl 'web.host/image[001-105].jpg' -o "trip#1.jpg" # Download images named image001.jpg through image105.jpg and save with different name. Note that curl's [] expression isn't a regex group expression and acts more like a bash brace expansion.

Just came home after cycling through rain. In January. In #Umeå.

Something is wrong.

On top of this, it seems temperatures will go below 0°C, meaning that all of Umeå will be covered by ice tomorrow morning.

Bike will be hazardous. Buses will drive off road. I might have to walk to work tomorrow.
