Glad to see bsd.network back up! I can only imagine the hellish kind of load it's experiencing right now. :flan_despair:

So, it looks like the extra load from the birbsite exodus has had adverse effects on my main account's instance. So, until that comes back, I'll be here on the SDF one. 👍

Here's hoping they can bring it back up. 🙏

Okay, I'll jump on the (re) #introduction trend 🙂

I'm Dave, a #computing and #music nerd living in the #Dallas suburbs, but from Cornwall in the UK originally. Ex #academic #researcher, now a #developer.

I'm most likely to post about dance music on #vinyl, some #gardening, #cycling, and maybe US and UK #politics. Oh, and #computing stuff.

Very lucky to be married to @pollywaffle !

I've closed signups for now on mstdn.social :blobcathearts:​ Invite links still work though!

we gotta take the load off a little ❤️ There are many other instances out there and I hope stability there has been restored a bit!

The main reason I kept signups open is to ensure people could find a working new social home❤️ I know other admins are stuggling also and I wouldn't want people to never return if things don't work.. 😟

Also to prevent things breaking here, a little break in registrations :cathug:​ We will go open again ofc

Global Warming - Old science project 

I still have my files from year 10 and 11 (age 15-16) at secondary school in the UK, back in 1998-9...

Found a 23 year old leaflet about #GlobalWarming courtesy of a GCSE science project. Microsoft Publisher still opens it nicely!

Same things still need to be done... 😕

Looks like there are some technical difficulties on the bsd.network instance, so I'm on my alt for the time being. 🙂

For quite a few years now, I've sung with a large (often 300-person) men's choir that raises money for charity. This year my 12-yr-old son also sang, so we had our first concert where I got to sing next to him last night.
