OK, down to 0 follows!

Folks, those of you who follow this account and are still active. Please do your instance admin a favour and unfollow this account as I'll be shutting down this server in about a week's time I guess.

My time with pleroma is finally coming to an end and I'm off to the greener pastures of GoToSocial.

Starting to move more to my gotosocial account.. trying to be a bit more discerning about who I follow, I may have been a little bit too enthusiastic with the excellent utility of trunk (https://communitywiki.org/trunk) with this account!

Hey, looking for advice which in an ideal world I'd not need to ask for..

I happily deleted my Facebook account a few years back and have no personal desire to create another account.. however, I was just notified by my brewer friend in Kochi that there is a new, non-visible and private, invite only group for Shikoku based brewers to communicate & collaborate and whilst I would not have chosen FB for this, I HAVE to be part of this group. I have an invite waiting for me when I create an account.

So, what is the best (I know not creating an account is best so please don't suggest that) way for me to use Facebook so that it doesn't get it's claws into all of my data elsewhere?

I'm thinking either a dedicated browser for this and only this (maybe firejailed?) or maybe even a VM.. but not sure how best to protect my privacy in order to join this community..

Any suggestions are appreciated.

@PINE64 pinephone pro looks great, nice work! How is the quartz64 coming along? Looking to grow my family of pine64 devices as soon as it is considered "stable"

The pinephone pro looks really good and I am tempted (particularly once I get my librem 5 refund.. if my order EVER gets to the shipping stage) .. but I am going to eek the life out of the FP3+ that I bought and only once it can't be repaired look to buying a new device.. hopefully a pinephone of some description when that time comes.

.. I will however be buying other pine64 products in the meantime and am patiently waiting for the quartz64 to be considered stable.

October Update:

Introducing the - $399

and PinePhone Pro pre-orders are now open to developers & shipping this year!

Posted 1 photo: One of three new vegan recipes books purchases today and the one I’m most excited about.. β€œThe Scottish Vegan Cookbook” by Jackie Jones.. very much looking forward to trying many of the recipes.

(https://jon.kelbie.scot/photo/2021/10/616ad19d/)

The front cover of The Scottish Vegan Cookbook by Jacki Jones, top half of cover is black with the book title in white and grey text.  the lower half of the cover is a very colourful array of prepared fruit, veg and leafy greens, dark red cherries and purple blueberries  to light green broadband and lettuce leaves.

@jambamkin I too have bought and tried them in principle.. it was a while back, and I might not recall the original Scotch pies clearly as I really only ate them in the first half of my life.. but the vegan ones were, as far as I remember, pretty close to the originals.. but yeah, I am as of yet still undecided as to whether I like scotch pies too.. I suspect its an eternal state.

and now working again on original server..

well, at least it got the heart pumping for an hour or so.. the coffee and red bull were very much letting me down.

OK, managed to resuscitate on another server.. but I probably have lots more configuring to do..

@athairbirb I do have a backup of the env so will try with it

@athairbirb I was getting the errors before I deleted the virtualenv, but then due to python nonsense it couldn't find virtualenv afterwards then any attempts to update or change my python install resulted in fuck tonnes of dependency issues

just tried to install synapse on another server with fresh python and it still doesn't compile the necessary wheel and they don't appear to have arm64 packages so I may be goosed

completely fucked the environment.. shifting it to another server and once I'm ready to shutdown pleroma I'll reinstall the OS and start afresh

importlib.metadata.PackageNotFoundError: virtualenv

I appear to have completely fucked my synapse install or python configuration by accidentally running a pip install as sudo.. I've not the slightest idea how to fix this and somehow unable to find a solution to this error:

Scottish music in Singapore

@jk hello from a tiny island in South-east Asia.

I thought you might be interested to know that some people have performed this evening, in the name of Traditional Scottish Music.

(More details: https://www.esplanade.com/festivals-and-series/crossing-borders/2021/scottish-traditional-music?FestivalNames=2021&Start=20211004 )

But of course, I have no way to verify if it is indeed traditional or Scottish πŸ˜…

Nevertheless, I hope this is interesting to you!

(And here's a shout-out to other people who identify with )

re: Scottish music in Singapore
@rogbeer excellent, it's nice to see the culture of my wee country being celebrated in another wee country! Thanks for sharing!

I have two relatively short-term research associate positions to work with me at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow. Previous experience gained via industry R&D or academia.

Β£36,382 to Β£40,927 per annum.

Closing date 13 October 2021 (extended from 29 Sept)

The purpose of both positions is to make a leading contribution to two EPSRC-funded projects that aim to make control systems for critical infrastructure more secure and reliable.

For both positions, all the project work can be undertaken entirely remotely, some School-related duties may require presence on campus and project work that doesn’t require synchronous interaction with the project partners and others can be done flexibly. The PI Wim Vanderbauwhede actively promotes a healthy work-life balance.
