I've spent most of my professional providing support to organizations. Also with various organizations, including Alternatives.

Earned a BA in & am currently doing some . I at Mostly read these days.


I just discovered that it's not possible to add alternate text for a photo in Twitter as we can in Mastodon. (I'm trying to remember to do that when I post a photo here.) But I can add alternate text if I post through HootSuite... except I looked at the tweet in Twitter and can't figure out how to actually see the text!

On our bird yesterday we met this lovely sycamore , estimated to be about 300 years old.

A Twitter user pointed to me that my software CryptoDonate is used in a neo-nazi website. The widget had a linkback to my blog.

I DON'T want my software to be used for evil or support hate.

It is Open Source and free for anyone to use. As an Open Source dev, what can I do ?

Took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to have a walk a Gateway National Recreation Area. Saw this lovely wineberry with its fuzzy red branches backlit by the Sun.

A bird walk in January may seem far-fetched, but we saw some amazing raptors (& a few others) this morning.

A bald eagle soared above us long enough to spot him with binoculars and watch for over a minute. He seemed to be enjoying the wind. But too far away for the limitations of my camera lens.

This peregrine falcon, on the other hand, posed on an old tire in the Kill (Dutch word for a creek) & I got a decent photo.

Also, back on the art/eyesore theme: TIL that the first of Wyland's 100+ whale murals, on the wall of a Laguna Beach hotel, was later painted over as an "eyesore." I mean, c'mon, really?

But since then, a friend of his bought the building, and he's recreating the original mural. On canvas this time, so he can move it if anything happens to the wall.

Happy to spot several Blue-throated Bee-Eaters (Merops viridis) perched on a tree and hunting for food near my workplace this morning in Singapore. Saw them taking off to acrobatically grab insects in mid-air.
