Smooth upgrade to 35, as ever. Just a COPR repo that hasn't been updated yet, other than that everything looks fine. 😎

Yes, that is a guy in the bottom right corner, trying to stop a 30 foot fibreglass sail from swinging in a 30 mph wind. With a luggage strap. 🍿

Watching the neighbours having a fibreglass swimming pool delivered. In a gale. 🍿

You know what the biggest pity about our entire education system is? History, I would argue, is THE most important subject we can teach. It is THE way of learning from the past mistakes of humanity. And yet the way it is so often taught makes it the least popular subject.

Is this even legal?? "Accept cookies or create an account." I thought websites were obliged to offer a route that doesn't enforce collection of personal data in the EU? 🀷 // @neil

Just want to say a huge thank you to all the people who have responded to my request for help! Massively appreciated. Also, for the record, the Fediverse has soundly kicked Birdsite's ass in terms of community helpfulness, you're all awesome! 😎

Dear Internet, I'm helping an old man who's almost blind. His computer is really important to him, but he's losing what's left of his sight rapidly. He uses Windows on a normal PC. Can anyone recommend tools/settings/software I can help him try?

Why oh why did I not do this sooner?! Finally got sick of typing the same git commands over and over. πŸ˜‚ gist.github.com/gregharvey/943

Pushing my French to the limit, doing a boat license in France. 😬 Highlight, teacher telling us to do our CRR (radio license) in France cos he has a friend who did it in Dubrovnik and it was in English. 😱🀣 Lovely day for a long lunch at least.

This is quite exciting. I've been invited to come and try out for a new jazz band. 🎸 πŸ€— It's a bit out of my comfort zone, but it's all and I just love playing!

Waiting in one of the rooms of the local notary's office. All the records from around 2005 to 2008 as far as I can tell. Got to be a fire hazard! 🀣

Schools should be using #Nextcloud.

At least, that's what the French government thinks!

What do YOU think?

So that was scary. Got an SMS asking me to verify reception of a delivery (I received a shed yesterday, so it looked a bit odd but was plausible). Clicked the link, it opened in Chrome and asked me to "update Chrome for a better experience". ALL THE NOPE. So I backed out immediately, but happily I have Sophos Intercept X installed on my Android phone, because a second later it says "fokiicjhsz.apk is perceived as a threat, do you want to delete it?" HELL YEAH. And I didn't instigate a download!

So apparently This Is Us, of which I thoroughly enjoyed episode 1 last night, has 6 seasons following the same people! I kinda assumed it would be a different set of stories each episode, sort of like Black Mirror. The first one was so complete, if I'd gone to the cinema to watch it I would've left the theatre happy thinking "what a nice film". So I'm really not sure how I feel about 6 seasons of it. I'm wondering if I should just stop after episode 1 and pretend it was a film!

Just watched the first episode of This Is Us. Really nice show, cleverly written.

Thanks to I'm paying €30 and having to bring a dossier of my life to the mayor to get an 'attestation' so my dad can visit me in France for a week. πŸ™„
