I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's

@Mmelulu Not as in age as in been on there and known forever.

Quick intro to those who haven't already been bored by me for 13 year on the other site. I'm a designer by trade, but I'm also a photographer by trade, and a visual artist of sorts by... you know, I write a bit. So like a full service human mess-up. I also collect things, have a bit of a lighthouse mind – so I have lots of vaguely interlocking interests which I tend to post about too much as each one pops up. Currently it's scale models (again) with bits of Baedeker Blitz stuff. Music always.

Unsolicited Nick pics. Here’s some Blitz ghosts for you. First raid on Norwich was 80 years ago tonight.
Rampant Horse Street after the second raid.

Quite funny watching dribs and drabs of the really old Twitter cohort appearing here. Hello!

@Zergling_man @non_saturatio @simonblackbourn I think I may need an instruction manual in crayon for all this.

A little project we've been working on. It's the 8th anniversary of the first of the Baedeker raids on Norwich in 1942 today. So a few of us got together and with the permission of Norfolk Record Office digitised the bomb map, an explanation of which is here with the map itself.

Good morning friends, this server is once again suffering under a heavy load of traffic and I am once again working on making it work better. Please be patient :tiredcat:

@nuala beaut! Have two ginger sisters and their brother who is curiously not orange but is a hole in space time.

@bob_ross I’ve messed something up and had to backtrack, so it looks like this currently.

😳 Understandable!
Well, pixelfed is another fedi place, with its own instances and all. You can see and follow their accounts from the federated timeline here in mastodon if you want.


@kitbest I’ll have a look. I’m an old Flickerite from the early days when it had lively communities/groups on it which was killed in about 2014 by the upgrades they did. Always missed that aspect, and Insta just doesn’t do it, it’s a marketing forum with photos in it.

@non_saturatio off to have a look. Last thing I joined that was the new Instagram was basically a front for NFTs, put me off fairly quickly.
