I've decided to move my primary account over to @andybroomfield@toot.cafe.

More about my own want in helping the fediverse along less than current drama, and find a (slightly) less crowded space to be part of.

BN2 4/10.
Looks like it’s settling so should be fun to go out on the downs tomorrow.

Tax Return done for another year. Each time I pledge to do it early and each year I end up like the people in the post office in that Simpsons episode.

Best answer is to disable FaceTime or now. Don’t think I’ve ever used it.

Apple users, big FaceTime bug allows people to listen to your microphone before you pick up.


Wonder how this one slipped out, sloppy.


So now it turns out that unless Germany annexes the UK and helps us out of Brexit we are going to be rationing food and medicines. Which is certainly not what my grandfather ever expected


"The over-riding theme in all the no-deal planning is civil disobedience and the fear that it will lead to death in the event of food and medical shortages."
... So why are we doing this?

Arrest Blair fund is closing, as its been five years since last arrest attempt. George Mobiot is asking for suggestions for where the money should be donated to. arrestblair.org

Pledgemusic is not paying artists on time.


Just recived an email from one of the artists I support on there about the non payment (she has £6k outstanding). Horrid situation, hope it gets sorted soon.

Brexit, unsolicited pro Brexit mail 

Spotted this through the door yesterday. It’s Weatherspoons boss pro Brexit propaganda magazine.

Not a Weatherspoons customer and not been in one for a while, so don’t know why this is here. Not addressed to anyone in the house just shoved through letterbox.

Does this count as unsolicited advertising or election / referendum campaigning?
