I've recently learned how to use the physics in Blender. Here's a couple of short videos I made. The second is a virtual model of my desk with some added extras.

Scottish Parliament Elections

The deadline for registering, enabling you to vote in the Scottish Parliament Elections, is Monday, April 19th.


Your vote could make a difference.


We had a walk beside Castle Law this morning. Loganlea and Glencorse reservoirs can be seen in the distance. There were lots of lambs about and a coal tit posed for the camera.

Something new I learned. Today is the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Baugé. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_o

My favourite bit is:
"On hearing of the Scottish victory, Pope Martin V passed comment by reiterating a common medieval saying, that "Verily, the Scots are well-known as an antidote to the English."

:boost_ok: :ablobcatwave: Please boost this post if you would like the EFF to join the fediverse. :ablobcatbongo:

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.

I see the vaccinations are going well. I got my first last week, my wife is due next week and my son (30 yo and no health issues) is due before the end of the month. That's a lot quicker than I expected.

Please help by signing this petition against planned shooting ranges next to Samye Ling #Buddhist Centre. chng.it/mLw2nFPsVH

Somebody with a Lochmaddy phone number just tried to scam me. Apparently I've bought an iPhone from Amazon.

Has anyone had dealings with ?
I've got a problem with my Joystick and they said that they would replace it back in November. At first they kept telling me that it was out of stock but now they're just ignoring me.

I don't get some people. My neighbours are having a birthday party.

The video in this article shows Johnson standing in front of where I used to work. My PC was on the bench in the corner behind him but that was over 10 years ago.
By the way, I think he's talking mince in the video.

It doesn't happen too often but today it was clear enough for me to see Stob Binnein and Ben More.

Stùc a' Chroin stood out in the sun this morning. It's just a shame about the tree in the garden 2 streets down.
