Eh, we have the same problems here. As I heard, it's kinda hard to get to the Montréal Island as well. Although the few times I went it wasn't that bad, probably because I went outside the rush hours. Same for Québec City, the bridges are mostly always congested at rush hours.

In the beginning there was walrii. In the end there will be walrii. All hail our supreme leader :walrii: --Snektron



if you wanna throw money at me and/or CodeWalrus monthly it's here

DJ Omnimaga

Oh I see what you mean now. I thought you meant hard to get there in terms of being in the middle of nowhere in Pacific Ocean or being an island of like 9 people with no airport nor harbor.

And yes traffic in Montreal is ridiculous, but not as bad as in NYC area. If Long Island traffic is that bad, then no wonder why nobody went to Islanders hockey games back then...

If Long Island traffic is that bad

I think you misunderstood me... Long Island traffic is actually not as bad as the city traffic or even Queens traffic for that matter.  Long Island is made up of two counties (Nassau & Suffolk, which represents the "body and tail" of the island respectfully). Queens and Brooklyn make up the head of the island but are not considered part of long island but rather part of the 5 Burrows (Bronx, Staten Island, and Manhattan being the other 3).  What I was insinuating was regardless whether you're getting on or off the island, you're always going to have a difficult time and have half to most of your day spent on the road because of multiple things (congestion, accidents, construction, stupid people, etc...) preventing you from getting to where you gotta go in/out of the island.  If you're coming into long island, once you pass Queens, its smooth sailing the rest of the way cause you have officially entered into Nassau County and Long Island in general.

I thought I had posted here before, but... ?

Anyway, I only wanted to mention I met Jim & Stefan Bauwens and Vogtinator while at the FOSDEM 2017 conference a "few days" ago.
(I had already seen Jim actually)

That said, the list of other community people I've met in the past includes, in alphabetical order: critor, Elfprince, Excale, Jim Bauwens, KermM, Laurae, Levak, Lionel Debroux, Merth (+ some TIers that have been active (some many years ago, some more recently) in the community by publishing stuff etc., but idk if that counts :P).
I almost met DJ and Juju, too, while I was in Québec.

Wow, nice to hear. I didn't know you got to meet them in person. Which reminds me, I haven't seen Stefan in ages. I also didn't know Lionel had met any community member IRL (there was not a single picture of himself ever posted anywhere online during his entire stay in the TI community).

Too bad I couldn't meet you, but it would have been hard to do so as you were in Montreal only during school year and I worked all weekends. The only time I would have been able to meet you is on tuesdays, most likely. Not to mention I and especially Juju would not have been able to afford the bus trip (and possibly hotel) there. >.<

Personally so far I met Aaroneusthegreat in 2009, Juju multiple times from 2010 to present (not as much now due to aforementioned money issues) and PatrickD last Summer.

This is a signature.
And now......give me an internet!

To be or not to be.........is that even a question? Who gets to decide this anyways?

DJ Omnimaga

That is cool :D. Also I didn't know Kotu was really going to Germany O.O

* DJ Omnimaga wonders if anyone here plans to head to Canada next Summer once the snow melted on July 1st <_<

DJ Omnimaga

Lol I would definitively like to meet you anyway, :walrii: or not :P. Otherwise we can always meet at the Quebec Aquarium if you ever come here :P

And yeah such trip would be expensive, especially the hotel if you came during Summer, holidays or the Winter Carnival <_< (although if I was in vacation during the entire trip then an hotel would not be necessary :P).

Lol yeah I don't think I would spend multiple days hiking alone. We never know what can happen. In Quebec in some areas there are bears in the woods, so if you have food with you then say good bye to your food (and they can be deadly unless you know how to deal with bears). There are probably maps of areas at risk, though. I tend to prefer wandering around the city or nearby areas anyway lol
