UB40’s debut album – Signing Off – was the 1st I bought with my own money (Xmas 1980). Just listened again – as fresh and radical as ever. They never reached those heights of perfection again 🎵
Today seems to be a techie woes day. My Lightoom > Koken Publish Collection plugin has stopped working properly, about to give up on it!
Goodness me, I am miffed with Microsoft. The recent Windows 10 update reset all my privacy settings, customisations and firewall rules – without any notice of intent to do so. And it reinstalled all the crapware tile apps I’d studiously removed previously. I am seriously irked!

Either a lot of people have blocked me(!) or Mastodon is dying. Where *is* everyone?
The new push notifications in mobile web for Mastodon 2.0 are reallllllly good, indistinguishable from a native app now. I just pinned my mastodon server to my home screen and I no longer have any need for a dedicated app.
