@withaveeay Yes, I presume something of the sort...but it doesn't make it any less confusing for the casual dipper inner :)

This is why I don't follow sport!

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,

@Helen It was indeed.
Used to work in that area and have visited before but never while not working.
Many more people there than ever before but, comparatively, empty!
Local smoked salmon mousse and oatcakes to dip in it...heaven ๐Ÿ˜„

@welshpixie that's the one ๐Ÿ˜„
I use certbot to renew. Needs renewing quite often bit a great service for those uninitiated in the dark arts ๐Ÿ˜„

Thought I'd seen it all but this particular NC500 patron takes the prize for innovation. An en-suite tent!m

I shouldn't really mention its name though since it seems relatively clear unlike the rest of my country!

@withaveeay Further to this thread, I have just checked the box of eggs we are currently working from and can confirm they are 'shop bought' with a lion stamp.
Must have had an eggmergency and bought some.
Occasionally the eggs from Flossie's have some fresh and others with lion stamps ๐Ÿ˜

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.

@withaveeay It's a rare occurrence for us to resort to shop bought eggs but, on occasion, we have to. In this case I believe that may have been a lion stamped egg but I couldn't swear to it. Sometimes even fresh local eggs have light coloured yolks. Perhaps there are vegetarian hens as well? ๐Ÿ˜„

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

@athairbirb My wife was showing me some seedlings she had potted up when a sudden exclamation heralded the discovery of a Toad who had decided to burrow down into one of the pots!
Next day he/she/they had decided that the original pot had been discovered so moved two pots down :)

@CreatureOfTheHill Love them :)
Weve been known to collect loads of these, thnly slice and dry in the hot tank cupboard :)
Then mushroom all year round.
