I'm happy to say that, right now, I'm well. I'm busy, but it's good busy. Still working at home, for the most part, although I did go on-site with a customer for the first time this week!
- Pleroma: I had another go at building an instance, thanks to community encouragement, and was successful this time! So I've now moved off Fosstodon — thanks so much for the great introduction to the Fediverse, Kev & Mike! — to a self-hosted instance. Registrations are open; I'll happily approve any non-bot sign-ups.
- My website: I'm playing around with the static site generator, mkws, created by fellow Yarn.social fan, adi! So you may see a bit more content on nfld.uk now. (I'm going to keep my Now page here for the time being, though.)
- Finally, I got a new Pi 3A! So far, it's hosting a WireGuard VPN, and a Vaultwarden (Bitwarden compatible!) instance. I'm also thinking about running LibreTranslate on it. Oh, I forgot to say, my Pleroma instance is running on my Pi 3B+, btw.
- Democracy Incorporated by Sheldon Wolin
- I came for inverted totalitarianism, of course, but am finding it a more challenging (and rewarding!) experience.
- Critical Reasoning by Jerry Cederblom & David Paulsen
- This was part of a correspondence course I abandoned years ago. Happily, I recently rediscovered it, and, in particular, its final chapter on how an amateur should best reason in a world of experts.
- The New Corporation by Joel Bakan
- This was my first foray in Bakan's catalogue; it won't be my last! I enjoyed how took a proper stab at solutions; not all doom and gloom.
