So - I'm going to assume that AFFG haven't made it over here yet and I'm going to air my concerns about Friday - in a hopefully safe space.
I have no problems with the vigil for democracy happening - I think it is a good idea, but I am terrified that it's going to be infiltrated by rent-a-mob and will result in violence - which will be splashed across the papers and TV as "nats are a disgrace to Scotland" or something.
Does anyone share these concerns?
A quick note for #TwitterExodusScotland it's not what you want to hear if you are hoping for a referendum this year. BUT - if we are left looking for legal options to force a Section 30. It looks like the Belfast Agreement has the period defined as SEVEN years. Meaning we could legitimately argue that Belfast Agreement has a defined period. SEVEN years will of course be 2021.
Page 5, Section 3.
Hmmmm have AFFG just paid people to stand there for the counter protest? Because.... spot the hat. #AUOBGlasgow
So, we've recorded an 84.7mph gust and an 84.3mph gust already - and the warning doesn't even start until 3am....

Right, bird site is a terrifying place right now. I'm shutting out the world because my anxiety can't take the stuff that is escalating in the real world.
Please could I ask that people who are posting stuff about war, hide it behind a Content Warning because some of us - are going to be in the fetus position watching cartoons and pretending everything is going to be fine.....
....as far as I know - today is neither Friday nor the 13th.....
So - I slept for a few hours, got woken up and ARGH! there must have been a power blip overnight. pfSense was down, complaining it wanted interfaces reassigning. XenServer down - which meant Unifi down.... 3 hours I have been running around trying to fix the network and get the internet back.
Hey weather - go away and leave me alone.
Also - the heating got upset by the power blip, so the house is cold.
Sustained brute force on SMTP since December 22. I'm blocking the entire 4Vendeta network 126.96.36.199/24 since the first attempts came from 188.8.131.52 and each time Fail2Ban has kicked in, the attempts come from the next IP in the sequence.
For what it's worth - DigitalOcean NL and Asia are not far behind being blocked either.
