@cooper @kev Ahh… the old ‘please power cycle your device’ trick eh… 🙃

Fabulous map from August 2013 showing where thrive in Serengeti National Park.

‘High-quality habitat is crucial to a lion pride; midsize prides generally control the best real estate and do better at holding on to their prime territories.’


Ahh, the best of British: awkward TV presenters… ‘so many knobs in one cockpit.’ 😂

Those familiar with their military ordnance will recognise the German, Russian and American variants.

Those familiar with will recognise the Danish version.

When you receive a commission asking: 'Please could you paint a Friday night at pub kicking out time, with all the fights, kebabs, and throwing up in gutters, but in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry?'

A fine example of what I can only describe as avant-Romanesque by Jim'll Paint It.


A marvelous exemplar of political posters.

Waugh stood in the 1979 election as the 'Dog Lover's Party' candidate. Classic British political trolling...

@jacklenox Haha! Love this meme. And great to have you back posting on Mastodon. 😎

Very much enjoying following people from Twitter here on Mastodon using the new bird site beta service. I would prefer it if people would post here instead, but then I wish for a lot of things…

One interesting hack, perhaps an unintended consequence?, is it seems to let me save videos which are posted on Twitter. I use to be able to do this directly from the Twitter app, but that functionality stopped a little while back.

Can anyone else confirm the same behaviour?


Well... that was less scary than I had expected. Successfully updated social.winter.ink to Mastodon v3.4.1. 🤓

@danarel Perhaps not as affordable as Namecheap, but an excellent host with some great technology offerings. I use their Jelastic solution which allows me to run several blogs and my own mastodon instance.

If your budget stretches, I can highly recommend Infomaniak.


Briar 1.3 was released! It features image attachments, profile pictures, disappearing messages and a re-organized settings screen.

@dajbelshaw @jamie It’s why I generally disdain both, and only use biennial occasionally.

@thoughtshrapnel I have found a fault in mastodon. It won’t allow anything higher than favourite or to apply multiple favourites to a toot…
