Hi folks! I hope you all had a restful weekend.
Did you know?
Masks have been with us since Ancient times. We all wear masks whether they are physical or psychological at one time or another. Masks were used for Hunting, rituals, Death and even Shaming.
Here is an informative Ancient Origins article on Ancient masks.

This is a really cool guide on setting up your own Jitsi server. It really doesn't look that difficult. I like the way NotS explains the ins-and-outs of the process, very useful and interesting.

The Cabbage White is a moderately rare butterfly in Singapore.
