Trying to be human, to see what the fuss is about. Talking politics, #RedSox, tech, & coffee. Girly swot.

The failure of the British State is not in thinking its methods are the best, but in thinking its ways are the only option.

Great Britain is only exceptional in its belief of its self importance and conceit.

The English Channel is not an impenetrable barrier, it is merely a trade route

Hey, it's December folks! That means cold weather, difficulty in getting food supplies, more Covid19 deaths, and Brexit blockades in a couple of weeks. Hope you laid in stocks to see you through the next few months while truck drivers refuse to queue for days to cross the Channel.

I've had a number of blogs, sites, infodumps and everything online for around 25 years, this is just the latest in that long line.
My main blogs used to be based on a version of Chryp which I tried to continue maintaining after it ceased being active more widely about eight years ago, and though I added some really great functionality to it the product was desparetly showing its age. Casting around for alternative light-weight FLOSS solutions I found Known [1] so I've forked it to play with and see it will suit my current purposes.
