Large SUVs, and large pick-up trucks (not pulling or carrying anything) are totally pointless here but they are of course everywhere.

@lanodan everyone moving to the big-endian format used in East Asia, which coincidentally is also similar to the ISO format (year first, then month then day) would be good, actually

@ashshuota I use and Migadu, can't complain about either. Both have very responsive and knowledgeable support
