Hey, you know what makes posts more accessible?

not writing them in one long run on word salad without any punctuation capitalization or other indication that you are moving from one idea or sentence to another or stopping and pausing for emphasis and differentiating meanings based on such cues

Rant, e-Roller

Empfehlungen für einen Wanderrucksack mit Laptopfach? :boost_ok:

I guess I'll have to add this hand saw to the everyday-carry of my cargo bike 😬
(sometimes you get lucky and the amount of good oak boards at the home improvement store is bigger than the allowable load that the bike can carry…)
