In 1930 the Indiana Bell building was rotated 90°. Over a month, the structure was moved 15 inch/hr, all while 600 employees still worked there. There was no interruption to gas, heat, electricity, water, sewage, or the telephone service they provided. No one inside felt it move.

@dick_turpin Kudos for The Cure, The Smiths and I also love Lloyd Cole.

Impromptu day off work. Now embarking on a George Best style 24 hour bender.

@dick_turpin testing reply as I know you don't have many friends/followers.

@andyc@pleroma.stream @dickturpin strange. I was sure I followed the cc account from pleroma web but tusky claimed I wasn't following so I did. Now it's pending. I remember similar oddities when initially trying to link with @mjd

@andyc@pleroma.stream @basil @wyliecoyoteuk I was thinking it was some ruffian going for a burnup after some drink /drugs. Then I remembered, the park closes at sunset and opens at 6am.

@theru @pla It would undoubtedly be better for my health and fitness if I saddled up and rode 100 miles, 3 times a week but hey.

As well as the yellow bike photos from lengthy rides across America, I'll also miss @pla periodic Pleroma uptime and upgrade notifications so I decided to self-host a instance.

While his upgrades were quick, seamless and pain-free. I can guarantee mine won't be.


Just checked and the team at the top of the Premier league at 22:05 on 12 January has gone on to lift the trophy in 14 of the last 15 seasons.

@timttmy @dick_turpin Fair enough. I was also curious about mining and experimented. Like you, not to make $$$ but just curious...

@timttmy @dick_turpin 6 months to make c. $160. Is it worth your CPU usage and electricity bill ?

@dick_turpin I also hold Ethereum (and smaller amounts of Monero, Cardano and IOTA).

@dick_turpin I've made a little more than that but skirting around the specific whenever the wife asks :-)

@dick_turpin Yeah my lad triggered my interest (well he wouldn't flipping shut up about the joys of crypto and poker) before the previous highs (December 2018 ?).

Then it fell back, everyone said 'I told you so' and I wrote off my fun investment. This recent resurgence is most unexpected !

7 more sleeps till the corporate transition to Exchange Server. Eagerly looking forward to the outcry when 100k employees find they have to manually re-enter their entire calendars,

@basil Yes although they're not immediate neighbours. Like a plugin replacement for the outgoing family. 2 young kids, posh car. They have been heartily welcomed by the Street WhatsApp group. I'm reserving judgement until I find out what footy team he supports.
