Pinned toot

Welcome Tux :tux:

Gruntled to have had my first post-lockdown tattoo.

This awesome design (shout-out to the talented @kev 🀘 ) was jabbed into my skin today (by the wonderful Joana at Pulse ).

Couldn't be happier with how it's come out!

There's a vocal minority that seem hellbent on discounting as an ethical FOSS project, I'm aware this sort of stuff doesn't come from nowhere.

Personally, I'm of the belief that privatised usage information is okay and being opt-in (off by default) seems like a fair compromise such that those that want to share usage info, can.

What do you think?

Just remembered I lost my list of all 250+ bands I've seen live throughout my life and I'm sad again :oh_no_bubble:

Steps to recreate it are painfully underway...

Meanwhile in the U. K.
The New Forest National Park Authority (NPA) online database now tracks historic 'witch marks' hewed into the forest trees.

Ukpol, covid 

You would think that they would at least use ACCESS to track Covid cases instead of excel

You would think that at the VERY LEAST they wouldn't be going one COLUMN per case instead of one row per case πŸ™„

You'd think the folks in management there would be at the very least a little competent

Anyone else missing live music? It feels like forever since I was last in a sweaty crowd, I need that release.

Live sets do a little to scratch the itch but I pine for the atmosphere.

Anywhere, he's Tallah doing their entire album in a live set. Man can pull off a crop-top, fuckin' A Justin 🀘 amazing live set.

Finished loft ladder installation, gathered materials to board the floor up there tomorrow, installed a light, upgraded mem & GPU in my desktop and reorganised my desk... What a strangely productive Saturday it's been!

Excited to say I've introduced 2 real world friends to Mastodon in the last week!

Surveillance capitalism is the same as climate change, but for data:

- Some people have been warning about its consequences for years
- Most people don't care because they don't feel concerned, they can't see it affecting them

- When we will face the consequences it will be too late
- We can still do something about it, and the sooner the better

So I wad just talking about domain names and I happened to use as an example. To my astonishment, this domain was available (it isn't any more!)
