Just signed up to pay @tursiops a bit of money every week for running tooting.ch. Nothing is really free, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are 'free' because they sell your data. @tursiops does not sell your data, so he needs to make money some other way to pay for the service. If everyone on tooting.ch paid him just a tiny bit a week, it wouldn't cost him money to provide this service for us. Make your happy: liberapay.com/Tursiops/

Official French government position if there's a 'no deal' is having a permanent job is a valid reason to get residency, and people who had a job prior to 30th March won't need a work permit. So that's something...

I guess it's time to update your Android device. Ahem... I meant it's time to pray your manufacturer of choice decides to provide an update for you.

I'm not sure the music school at Laudun is ready for this. 😂 9 year old on drums, his dad on guitar and me on bass and vox. School of rock! 🤘😎 m.soundcloud.com/greg-harvey-9

Anyway, mission accomplished. Got my cables back. They're great for live work, nobody ever accidentally takes your florescent pink cable! 😂

Still convinced we lost at least one box of books when we moved, seven years ago. Exhibit A, a dust cover with no corresponding book... 🤔

I also filed Complete Guide To Childcare under pets. I'm probably evil.

Tidying my bookshelves (having emptied them to retrieve a couple of cables I foolishly routed behind them five years ago) and found a Bible. Filed it under history and biographies. Why not?
