@dajbelshaw I have, yes. Has promise, but unfortunately I've locked myself into the Lightroom pluginverse. On my someday / maybe list to wean myself off proprietary and onto FLOSS :)

UB40ā€™s debut album ā€“ Signing Off ā€“ was the 1st I bought with my own money (Xmas 1980). Just listened again ā€“ as fresh and radical as ever. They never reached those heights of perfection again šŸŽµ

@dajbelshaw E.g. Lightroom, Photoshop, Garmin Express, Zwift. Tried them all on WINE under Linux with not much joy.

@dajbelshaw I do use Linux, but need Windows for some things that just don't work (or work well) on Linux.

@dazinism Ah well, back to to change my settings back again. They won't beat me - I am more stubborn than they are :)

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 ā€“ without any notice of intent to do so. And it reinstalled all the crapware tile apps Iā€™d studiously removed previously. I am seriously irked!

Ordered some handwarmers from Amazon, based on which I have been offered the autobiography of No thanks, but what on earth have handwarmers got to do with him?!

@neil Yes I POSSE out from Known to Mastodon using this plugin: Seems to be out-only though so no backfeed. I'm also experimenting with POSSE from WordPress but with poor results so far.

"The was supposed to replace the industry. Instead, it has replicated it.

Nakamoto wanted to create a system for that would circumvent governments, bankers, and corporations. Instead, Bitcoin is now a get-rich-quick scheme that retains none of the exciting, anarchist features it proposed and has created a secondary with financial shenanigans that mirror the ones that led to the global financial crisis."

Just finished migrating my mail, calendar and contacts over to @FastMail All working well (touch wood!) and via and syncing nicely with my Android phone :):

Either a lot of people have blocked me(!) or Mastodon is dying. Where *is* everyone?

@kev Looks like you've been on a similar journey to me (I've summarised mine here at - still need to move from Google Calendar though. Good tip about cPanel as I have that on my hosting at Reclaim - so will check it out!

@Greg I still cross-post some photos to Flickr and 500px but as an expoenent I should really wean myself off them!

@Greg I use the open-source hosted on my own hosted domain server. Has a Lightroom Publish Service plugin, so I can publish direct without exporting

@Greg My notifications went completely blank the other day, and haven't shown anything since!
