Good day, and welcome to Bus Stop - a small talk message board. Each post remains on the site for only a day, after which, it disappears. Registration is not required, and small media files can be uploaded along with each post.

If you find this place empty, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's completely abandoned. Feel free to make a post to start a discussion, perhaps someone will see it and reply!

Bus Stop is intended to be a stress free environment for talking with strangers. Try to keep a relaxed demeanor when posting, please don't say or upload anything that might ruin the other person's day.
I hope we meet again.

Bus Stop uses an extended version of WakabaMark markup code for post formatting.
The basic features are as follows:
  • Surround text with * or _ to make it italic. _Like this_ or *like this*.
  • Surround text with ** or __ to make it bold.
  • Surround text with %% to make a spoiler
  • Make an unordered HTML list by beginning each line with *, or -. You can add line breaks in list entries by breaking the line and indenting the next line with one or more spaces.
  • Make ordered HTML lists by beginning the first line with "1."
  • Make quote sections by beginning each line with ">". Highlighting text and then clicking the post number will quote the selected text.
  • Make code sections by indenting each line by four spaces or one tab. Code sections get shown in a monospaced font, and are not otherwise formatted.
  • Make external links by just typing the URL you want to link to. Post references like >>0 can be created by clicking the post's number and are automatically turned into links. You can link posts from other boards like this >>>/test/#0. The first youtube link in the post gets embedded, unless the post has a file attachment.
If you want to make a large post with complex formatting you can test if everything looks right here.

Please fill the subject field with clearly defined topic when it's appropriate. It not only allows to browse this site like a regular image board by filtering the posts with the same subject, but also serves another purpose. Subjects have a longer lifetime than posts, it means that even when subject's thread is empty, it stays in the list for several days since the last post. In case this board is empty, this should help a new user or a person who hasn't visited the site for a long time to understand what kind of things were being discussed recently.

SJIS art can be displayed without any special formatting, as required proportional font is used on Bus Stop by default.
Bus Stop supports uploading of the following file types:
  • Images: jpg, png, gif.
  • Video: mp4, webm.
  • Audio: mp3
The maximum file size is 16MB.
EXIF data is stripped out from the images automatically.
The board's look can be customized from the options menu, which is accessible by clicking [+] in the bottom right corner of the sidebar. Available options are as follows:
  • [theme]: switches the visual style of the site.
  • [Mona]: enables the Mona font. If your browser has problems with rendering it, turn it off to use a system font.
  • [⟳]: enables auto reloading of the page each 90 seconds.
  • [?]: controls visibility of the info post.
Options are stored in your browser's cookies, be sure to enable them, if you want to save your settings.

Bus Stop is also available through this URL vip.bus-stop.net
This is the JavaScript-free mirror of the site, so if you like, you can use it to browse the scriptless version of Bus Stop without disabling JavaScript in your browser.
Please note, that you need to solve a captcha to make posts with disabled JavaScript.

User submitted themes are placed on different subdomains as well:

PERSONAL DATA USAGE
Bus Stop's page doesn't send any info to the server, besides your posts data and captcha id and answer when it's enabled. Some of the features like customization options require to have cookies enabled, but only to use your browser's local storage, without actually filling the cookies headers.
Our JavaScript code doesn't make any requests and isn't mandatory for the site's core functionality.
HTTP server's access logs are disabled. Bus Stop has a statistic system that counts unique posters and visitors by storing checksums of IP addresses in database. Internal logs contain IP addresses together with posts content in plain text for moderation purposes, such logs are stored on the server for 3 days, they aren't shared with anyone and Bus Stop's maintainer uses them very infrequently.

TECHNOLOGY
Bus Stop is built using the following open source projects:
Qt framework, libfcgi, cgicc, ClearSilver, SQLite3, Phantom Qt, QtCaptcha, spdlog, jQuery, Normalize.css
It runs with help of Nginx web server and uses FFmpeg, ImageMagick and ExifTool for media uploads processing.

Been thinking about going to Florence and want to take the train, which is a long trip but I like long train trips.
Still unsure, with c*r*na still hanging around strict rules and whatnot, I'm not sure if I should postpone that idea.

I want to take my bike and sleeping bag and just ride south for a few days but work won't let me.
So the only way i'm heading is to work.

I have an idea to travel across Finland on trains. The thing is I've never been abroad, and I don't enjoy much being outside by myself, but at the same time I'm frustrated that I don't have any adventures in my life and don't know what to do with my disposable income. So I think to visit 4-5 cities for 3-4 days each, and just live there without doing many touristy things.
I hope I'll find the courage to actually do it.

The only thing stopping is you is yourself. Just do it.

There's a fantasy I've had for a while about spending maybe 2-3 months traveling sort of aimlessly on a motorcycle, staying mainly at campsites. I guess step 1 to that would be getting a motorcycle. I'd also have to have enough money saved up to afford food & camping fees for that amount of time. I hope it's something I'll be able to do within the next 5 years or so.

3-4 days each + on a motorcycle = Kino's Journeys. Beautiful.
