Напарник по дальним рейсам повредил руку, но был запасной вариант. В итоге вместо 70 км асфальтов получилось в группе 43 км, из которых километров 27 — грунты, тропинки между деревьями, дорожки с препятствиями, промоины, балки, пересыхающие ручьи и прочие прелести . Было с полсотни участников, на узких участках была каша, поэтому нарастил темп и держался недалеко от ведущего. Обратный путь по умирающему асфальту против ветра, и то недолго: завернули вниз на шлак вдоль кладбища, через километра четыре затяжной подъём, и даже асфальт мало кого радовал. В итоге так и приехал рядом с ведущим, за что получил вновь закономерное прозвище „сохатый“. Впрочем, до „кабана“ ещё далеко.

P.S. …Еле прошёл „карусельку“ у невропатолога.

What sets appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines:

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
