Apparently pixelfed.social is "protected" by Cloudflare. I'll leave you to do your own research as to why you might not like Cf, but if the privacy issues (e.g. m-i-t-m/ssl), and allowing hate-speech, terrorism, and the like aren't enough then try, perhaps, the thought that Cf going down brings down large chunks of the www and that might convince you - having a SPOF is A Bad Thing.

You can consider my account on pixelfed.social to be dead.

"Go to work on an egg"

I thought I'd probably have to do quite a bit of work on this egg because I took it in a hurry (eat, or take endless photos of your breakfast going cold? That's an easy question, really!), but apart from straightening this is not only straight-out-of-camera, it's also the one and only photo I took. Once in a while the luck I experience is the good kind!

-key -key -egg

It occurs to me that I should perhaps post my photos here instead of just on pixelfed and 365...

I'm minded to create a Mastodon client. It would be called Wolfie, and have the slogan "Freedom for Tooting!"

I imagine the only people who would use it would be Brits "of a certain age".

I was talking with some people the other evening and the conversation somehow got around to toy/model trains. J said he mixed his and his HO set together, which I said would have horrified me because they're different scales (1:32 and 1:87 respectively).

They now think I'm strange.

I know I'm right.

I must stop munching these Ritz crackers.

I must stop munching these Ritz crackers.

I must stop munching these Ritz crackers.

I just stopped munching those Ritz crackers, there are only crumbs left.

Oops.

Would you believe me if I told you it was a pregnancy craving? πŸ˜‹

I've created a new a/c on a different instance. Hopefully I won't get any nasty Cloudflare surprises from this one.

Google: just no. No way, no how.
Bing: it's Microsoft, so see above.
Duckduckgo: seems more like quack quack oops - way too many results in the wrong language for me, amongst other issues.

So... what search engine *should* I use that respects users' privacy and returns decent results? I would search for one but... see above.

Is the answer? What other options are there?

Oooh... Warm slippers! πŸ˜…

(I had to hurriedly bail the workshop out yesterday and my slippers got wet in the process, so I put them above a radiator to dry, resulting in me having the pleasure of putting toasty slippers on a moment ago. So... yay for rain and leaky workshop roof, I suppose? 😯)

Hello weirld!

I would say "world" but it's been weird for so long that "weirld" seems more appropriate.

Software developer by day. Sleeper by night.

In my free time I fail at DIY and gardening, and am a bit less unsuccessful at photography.

Irascible. Bearded. Gamer (board games and tabletop & freeform RPGs). Growing old disgracefully.

They're pikelets, *not* crumpets. With a mug of hot tea - no sugar, no milk - please.
