Re: The Great River Passage Plan

> Pig's Eye Park I just spent some time looking into that whole area, it's pretty wild. There seems to be a ton of regional park over there, but it's next to impossible to get a map of boundaries or access points, and while it's apparently open for hiking the park is completely unmarked outside of t...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

This! But also for electric scooters and non electric bikes.
I really want a scooter but I feel like it would just get stolen if I actually used it to go places instead of joyriding and always parking it in the house.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

On the topic of e-bikes, the NYTimes Columnist Jamelle Bouie recently was on The War on Cars podcast to talk about his conversion into an e-bike evangelist. It's a good talk with someone who didn't come at the topic from any specific urban transportation expertise. Link I've followed him on Twitter...

Re: Suburban World Theater rehab - 3022 Hennepin Ave S

Reminds me a bit of the Oriental Theater in Milwaukee. I saw There Will Be Blood there on film and there's just something amazing about seeing a movie or a show in a place with that kind of character.

Re: Hennepin Avenue (Franklin to 36th)

I'm afraid the fantasy is sitting around wishing on a star that EVs will save us. The real fantasy is that transit will save us, given the political climate. There would have to be an order of magnitude larger investment in transit infrastructure to really make a large dent in the number of persona...

Re: Hennepin Avenue (Franklin to 36th)

A plan that doesn't make any accommodations for left turn lanes is absurd and should be discarded immediately. In other hot take opinions that will be unpopular here, there's not room for bike lanes on Hennepin. There are other viable locations for the bike lanes, but there are no other viable rout...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

The bigger issue at Snelling Station today is the limited platform capacity, which is not designed to handle stadium event crowds in any way, shape or form. It's not, at all, but by the end of last season I felt like they had finally figured it out pretty well. Loading the trains was going way smoo...

I've been all-in on Linode for years, but you don't get cpanel or anything with them it's just a bare VPS.

Re: Future of the forum

Yes, cPanel has it and many cPanel hosts have that turned on, but Site5 deliberately does not for their shared hosting. I prefer Let's Encrypt (both because of the $0 price and the superior validation setup)
Yikes. I can see why you're not a fan.

Re: Future of the forum

Site5 -- which wouldn't be my choice, but it is a nightmare to move a big phpBB install, so delaying that. Looks like you can enable AutoSSL in cPanel to get free SSL certs using Let's Encrypt: https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/installing-letsencrypt-certificates-on-site5-hosting-using-cpanel/30659

Re: St. Louis Park - General Topics

I use that MicroCenter all the time and I'm in Stevens Square, but taking transit there would be ridiculous. It's an hour one-way at a minimum, 40 minutes of which is walking. What about my relatives in Edina (I know, lol)? It's either a 50 minute walk one-way, or a 1h 20m transit ride one-way (incl...

Re: George Floyd murder and aftermath

Given the police's behavior captured not only on livestreams but also by the news media on live TV, I absolutely think ignoring calls to make a point is plausible.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

You can't just wave your hands and change how our cities have been built for the last 200 years. Using a bicycle as primary transportation in the suburbs isn't feasible. It could have been were our cities built around that idea, but they weren't. It would probably make sense to start taxing resident...
