After persistent connection problems, I have moved instance.

Bit sad about that because @milan seems like a lovely bloke.

Anyway, I am now at @RunningInCircles if you read this.

I have managed to grab my follow list, so you might get a heads up in that regard.

rsync is great.
rsnapshot is a little automated backup system that builds on this and has saved my stuff many times ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Sunday, the day where there is an opportunity for a lay in.

Sometime just before 6:30am the body and mind conspires to wake and demand to be up and active.


Oh well, plenty of time for coffee and breakfast before a run.

It is interesting that net neutrality has not really been discussed with regard to the mobile arena. Or if it has it has passed me by...

Who decides what is classified as streaming? Easy to promote/demote media based on if it is included in the free portion of a contract.
Given the size of mobile providers, where there is even less choice than for an ISP, this could become a real issue without anyone noticing.

My colleague in my last workplace used to patch that way many moons ago ๐Ÿ˜€
He was teaching Python to kids when I left ๐Ÿ˜€

My youngest is in a dance show tonight.
Solo plus a dance with stunting as half of them are gymnasts as well as dancers, as is their teacher.

Will be fun I'm sure.

But for now I have Twisted Sister in the background as an antidote to the inevitable relentless pop and sweetness to come....

I must admit, next time I lose one and need a replacement, SOG would be what I would look at ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


This is currently my favourite blade ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Perfect tool for my time in the forest. Hammer can be used to drive huge nails into trees to improvise a ladder or for rigging gear...
Nice balance and hones to a good edge.

Leatherman on my belt for more general use these days.

Don't use the laptop much, but eldest child's tablet died, so she has mine at the moment.

Weekends kill my phone battery fast and I tend not to be around the desktop machine ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Though, to be fair, the laptop is also often purloined by the youngest for Minecraft ๐Ÿ˜› so I don't get to that much either...

Ohhh, so the reason why I cannot login to on my laptop is not because I cannot remember the password I used, or the email address.

It was because when I set it up, I misspelt the word mastodon before the @ in the email ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I am a muppet ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Now fixed and mastodon spelt correctly.

The advantage of your own domains for email is flexible email addresses.

Illegal in the UK, despite the fact that we have some otherwise pretty sensible knife laws ๐Ÿ˜€

Always carried a blade of some description on my person as a tool since I was young. I was thinking about how long when I gifted my Bowie replica I got from my father to my eldest the other week. I reckon I have been carrying one of some description or another for approaching 30 years ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

My preference has varied, but locking blades on anything folding for me ๐Ÿ˜€

Have fun.
Keep all fingers.

If you want to know why you should be pissed about EME/DRM in your browser, it's because it will not likely stop /me/ from finding a way around it to access that content through unauthorized means, but it will likely make it a pain in the ass for /you/ to access content you pay for, and that content you pay for /will/ be taken away from you eventually.

Postman brought this today...

Much faff to jump through the hoops required, but another piece of the puzzle sorted. ๐Ÿ˜€

They generally are ๐Ÿ˜€
It's what someone I know describes as "the dolphins" ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ

She is referring to endorphins, but I prefer the dolphin image as they always seem happy and playful ๐Ÿ˜€
