I may have inadvertantly posted this to Pixelfed.
Note to self: Must pay attention.

Cease and desist from Facebook to Barinsta, a FOSS Instagram client
At approximately 21:33 UTC July 26 2021, I have been hit with a cease & desist letter from a law firm repsenting Facebook. The letter was sent to one of my personal email address as well as Barinsta's public inbox (and as a result, it is published). In response, the source code has been taken down, and all promotional materials within my control has been adjusted to reflect the fact.
While I believe it is nearly impossible to fight a resourceful multinational firm and reinstate the app, we will still try to get as much resources as we could to navigate in this crisis.
At this dire moment, I ask you to do 1 thing: Please let others know what is happening here. Such bullying behaviour against a young university student is in no way excusable. Such bullying behaviour against many internet users is in no way excusable.
It has been an honour of a lifetime to serve as one of the main contributors of Barinsta. I am forever grateful for the countless supporters along the way.
Thank you & Best Regards,

How are food supplies? Are shelves in the supermarkets and shops at empty?
Especially interested in fresh fruit and vegetables.
Shelves here are not as full as they used to be, with some having vast empty areas.
Brex and Cov are where blame is being placed but I think it's just the former and would like more information.
Got some lovely fresh eggs from @withaveeay this morning as we passed on our walk.
They included a bonus gift of a giant egg as seen in the first picture.
Usually these eggstraordinarily large eggs simply contain masses more white and a standard yolk but, not this one! See picture two.
The yolk was more than twice the size of a standard one. So, whichever hen laid that is to be encouraged...as well as sympathised with of course
This made me smile!

So, I thought it best to test the 4x4 capabilities of my latest purchase, after all, we test every other part of a new car purchase so why not this major selling point of the Panda Cross? However, i I was reluctant to dive into the first bog I saw and get stuck. So, a grassy slope was a nice soft starting point.
It IS quite steep honest :)
Video won't upload to mastodon, too big. This is hosted on my /e/foundation nextcloud account and should play from there?
Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....
When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.
@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.
Just realised I spent so much time on the caption I forgot to put Anything on the post.
I do love me a huge old tree 😁
