Morning all. I have to continue the odyssey of taking a website to bit and putting it back together blindfolded. I may be some time.

I made a roller shutter for it the other night. Needs a lick of paint, but you get the gist.second pic is a dry fit.

Sorry if the site has been slow lately, there’s a cat on it

Anyone know why if I try and tweet a photo my publish button is greyed out?

Just found Funkwhale, this should keep me occupied reading things I don't understand for a while.

Is there a Fediverse version of Apple Music/spotify yet? One where artists get the subscription rather than some yacht owning talentless suit?

@DanielHunter There's two of you, is this some sot of dystopian nightmare?

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

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!

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:

😳 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.
