Hello, I'm a 🇬🇧, living in 🇳🇴. I write here almost exclusively in English but may occasionally reply to others in Norwegian.

I like minimalist cycles. I commute primarily by unicycle, penny farthing, (non-motorised) scooter (a.k.a. footbike) and "Halfbike™".

I also like minimalist tech: non-smartphones, old school digital watches, Slackware, Gemini/Gopher.

Professionally, I work for the as QA lead and release manager for the desktop (Win/Mac/Lin) version.

Well that whole straightforward move process was not straightforward at all and just meant I lost the 116 followers I build up.

Try and do a "Profile move" and it tells me I need an "alias" setup. Try and create "alias" to the new account and that just results in error (yes I tried lots of times).

So in the end I try a Profile redirect. That works… now I have no followers. FFS

This is my #introduction.

I’ve been online for a very long time and have had my own homepage since the early ‘00s.

I’ve dabbled in web1, 2 and 3; and think web3 is a very horrible idea as it is framed now. Crypto is worse.

I re-launched my homepage in the last year and post short updates regularly.

I’ve been a self-employed electrical engineer for 10y and focus on electrical safety, power system modelling and recently on solar development.

For my first #followfriday I have the following, some are from Twitter some are brand new friends:

@me
@molly0xfff
@mike
@velocipederider
@bgcarlisle
@cstross
@Robynw

There are way to many new pocket friends that I’ve made this week to include them all.

If you have any #ff suggestions that enjoy #renewableenergy #microgrid etc let me know!

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

I added links to my Strava, Uncyclist forums and Linux Questions profiles to my profile page here on the Fediverse.

We welcome with open arms those who have to flee from Putin’s bombs.

Our Temporary Protection applies to everyone fleeing the war from Ukraine.

So I most likely have Covid now. I tested and am negative but both my mother (who is staying with us) and now my wife have tested positive. In my wife's case it was the faintest line, so I guess for me it just has not shown up yet.

I will test again tomorrow, which also happens to be my birthday. Covid… what a lovely present 😆

I don't think I ever did one of these and there's 🍍 all these new people 🍍 so: #introductions 

I'm mostly a software engineer and #videogamer, with tangents to #cycling, failing to learn #Norwegian, and otherwise wasting a perfectly good B.Mus in #violin performance. I was a #moonkin (SERVER FIRST ALGALON 10), and now I'm a #Guardian.
