@dsv Moxie never liked the idea of decentralization or federation (though he did try it once).

One of the community comment in the Signal issues told to "prove Moxie wrong" if you want federation.

I guess the current situation just did.

OK more tech support please. This time with #Signal.

I have more than one Google account on my phone, basically for different email addresses, so each account has it's own contacts list. I like it like this and it works well.

However, Signal only seems to pick up contacts from my main Google account. This is a pain and wasn't an issue with WhatsApp.

Is there any way to get Signal to sync with all my accounts? I definitely don't want to merge them.

I spent my childhood rolling down hills in old tyres.

They were really good years.

New profile pic of me and the tiny one 😁

Had an email from my local biological records office - two of my observations are new species for the area!

Feels like I've won an award. 🏆

So it's like two and a half thousand years ago in Athens right and there's this guy called Peisistratos and he's all walking around goin "Heeey, what's up guys, you know how my uncle Solon gave you all the right to vote in shit? Weeell it's kinda not great because the Oligarchs still kinda have all the power and regular dudes don't even get that much of the say, it seems like this Democracy thing might not be good after all? How about you all come with me and we overthrow the oligarchs and you install me in supreme unquestionable power and I'll give you a bunch of stuff in return, sound good?"

This was kinda going on all over Greece at the time, Oligarchs would get rich and Tyrants would spring up like prooop

proop

proop

prrrooooop

So the people of Athens are like "Fuck yeah, fuck these Oligarchs man, they're always being like rich and shit. And I'm pretty sure they're in bed with Sparta and that's just a dick move bro" so they put him in power and were like "we live in a tyranny"

Struck by the further restrictions on Healthy-Start compared to Best-Start.

That you've got to be earning £200/month LESS before you're disqualified for vouchers.

Vouchers are so much worse than the debit-card for Best Start too

Healthy Start is so much more heartless =(

Reading about the Free-School-Meals fiasco in 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 and that the company, Chartwell's, does not provide for dietary requirements sounds exactly like the government systems (Best Start 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 and Healthy Start 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 ) where the money can only be spent on specific food groups.

If you have any dietary requirements outside of a "complete" diet, you're screwed.

So I arrived back in the UK on Sunday after being in the US since the middle of December.

Good flight, Virgin were excellent as usual.

Then I reached UK Border Control at Heathrow.

Now we've reclaimed our sovereignty there are 2 channels. Channel 1 is for UK passport holders and those from about 7 other countries. I picked out US, Australian and Swiss flags amongst others. Channel 2 is for everyone else.

Now despite there being a fraction of the number of passengers as they're - 1/5

I'm thinking we should start a hashtag for calming photos of moss.

I met this little guy on the Fife coastal path near Kinghorn today. Such a little poser! And so bold, I got right up close. Really made my day. rhiaro.co.uk/2021/01/met-littl
