Pinned toot

Oh, we should actually update our profile and pin something better, but for now...

If it wasn't clear from what we toot, we are recently discovered plural
On top of that, came the dawning realisation that when forced to recognise the others within, that we were not male. In fact the fronting construct personality, was just playing the male role for protection of the group
So, we are currently lacking in spoons because of dysmorphia that once it came on, became relentless.

Something by the way of a refreshed

Before this instance there was and before that

If you have come across those and see me here, you may or may not notice subtle changes.

I shared this with my OH 2 days ago.

It is not *exactly* me, but closer than I can articulate at the moment. Good enough.

My tribe is dysfunctional at the moment and in need of remediation.

I need to step aside and let them breath.

So I may not be the person familiar when I post.

I could make alternative accounts, but that's fracturing us when we need to come together. Indeed it is something to an extent, reflecting, I have done in the past.

Because you have interacted with me before, you *do not* need to in the future. We have no expectation. Mute, unfollow, etc... There are tools. Use them.

We desire to cause no discomfort, but this is *new* to us.

Equally, please continue if you like.

My language might change, be inconsistent and fluid. So do *not* stress or be precious about it in turn. No offence will be taken.

I need to write this all better, in a blog, not toots. But I feel an explanation is in order of sorts, here and elsewhere.

I used to describe myself as an anarchic socialist at heart. My tribe requires that of me now, or at least something better.

Maybe all of these decades we can find some semblance of lasting peace.

Ageing hacker, remembers war dialling. Into wandering the hills, bodyweight fitness, yoga, meditation & heavy metal.

Upped and moved to North Scotland. Here to climb trees, swim in lochs and wander the mountains.

Twice broken by modern life. NDE by self direction, only here because of the actions of a soul mate.

Rebuilt the first time and discovered spirituality, meditation and chaos magic.

Rebuild 2 currently ongoing. Delving into animism and shamanic practice.

Wasn't planning on foraging while in the woods this morning, but when presented with some lovely mushrooms, we can change our evening food plans 😀

Some really nice scabers and a penny bun 🍄🍄🍄

Reckon it's going to need probably three coats/applications.

Two would be fine we are sure, but given how long it spent under snow/ice this winter, three is probably better for timber low down.

Deck of the den sanded back and given it's first coat of oil.
Given the temperature, it will be dry soon enough 😀 Not that we intend a second coat until tomorrow.

The rest of the den is getting fresh paint later on. A brighter blue over the existing, and covering the cream with a bright yellow. Going for the beach hut look a bit like those on the Norfolk coast. Was tempted to go stripey, but our patience for painting is not that great.🤣

When it is hot, abandon the paths and just travel in the river as opposed to alongside it 😀

Mostly a wade, with a short swim.

(Selfie, eye contact)

May I get two followers to copy and repost this message? I’m trying to demonstrate that someone is always listening.

Hmm, what's that weird outgoing traffic on the network monitor? 🤔

<fires up nethogs>

Oh, that's SAMBA, and a quick look at the files, reveals eldest child is watching anime in her room from one of the drives on this box 🤣

Really should have guessed without looking... 🤦


We have a set of tools that can accommodate metric, imperial, JIS, various thread pitch standards etc.

However, it would be much easier if these were not mixed at random across the same damn part.

Hardtop manufacturers, we are looking at you...

Passed over the Linn of Quioch today.

Stopped and took shoes and socks off for a paddle as it was lovely and warm.

Stopped by Tomnaverie stone circle on the way back today.

Which it quite a nice spot. Phone camera does not do it justice 🤷

Where do you put your nuclear bunker when planning? A few feet from a stone circle apparently 🤣

An odd combination of old and new. 😀

Went for a shortish walk with our wife this morning intending to have lunch at the bridge and dangle our feet in the water.
Weather was so lovely, and water so inviting, it turned into a swim 😀

When cooking outside on a fire, the smoke tends to get in certain peoples eyes.
Some people can seemingly attract it. It follows them, or their chair, not sure which.

However, the pandemic does lend itself to providing a solution of sorts 😝

Does make getting the ketchup on your hotdog trickier though... 🤣

"This study, called for by autistic people and led by an autistic researcher, is the first to explore ‘autistic inertia,’ a widespread and often debilitating difficulty acting on intentions. [It] is unique in considering difficulty initiating tasks of any type in real life settings, and by gathering qualitative data directly from autistic people."

Now, we *only* have Chromium on the machine for use with the NHS Near Me video service. (Which could be made to work with other browsers, but 🤷)

But it baffles us that given it offers nothing appreciably different as a piece of software in terms of features or performance, that Chromium takes SO long to compile.

Indeed, Chromium compiling on all 8 cores will fail on 16GB of RAM, and needs 32GB to build consistently.

7 hrs vs 1 hr.
What does that extra 6hrs really gain other than heating 🤣
