A few month back, on another Saturday morning, I was running to a parkrun, down some twisty country roads.
I turned one bend to find an entire herd of deer blocking half the road.
I did not run past them, for I have a fear of spooking any animal bigger than me, and that goes double for a flock of them.
Later that same day someone completed a marathon in under two hours, and I was given my hashing name.
I've just heard that the #parkrun new year double is a thing of the past.
It is sad that I won't get to run another double, but I'm quite glad I'll now have no reason to drive on New Years day, and by extension stay sober on New Years Eve.
Thanks to mastodon I discovered #slowly, and thanks to slowly I've spent my Sunday afternoon writing 'letters' to strangers in Turkey, Mexico and Russia.
One of my colleague is developing a parental control system using a #mitm attack.
I suggested he brand it as "mam-in-the-middle"
A few years back I had a series of posts on my blog entitled reasons I fear I'm becoming an #hipster.
The posts have long since been lost to time, to the either, and also to the wayback machine.
It seems to me that here could be the perfect venue for reviving that series?
I never found much utility in #mapillary anyway, so deleting my account is no great hardship.
One of my Birthday presents was this Saw Doctors #cassette that is only seven or eight years younger than me.
Stranger with the Melodies, Copper, and We Were Three are some of my favourite Harry Chapin tracks.
They were also proving quite difficult to find on the MP3 stores I use, so I found this #cassette on ebay instead.
The #pinephone is far far too large to fit in my pocket - best I keep to my classic iphone SE.
The #pinetab is cool enough, but I already have a tablet that I hardly ever use, so don't think I need another one*.
Much as I would like to support @PINE64 I don't really have much use for any of their range at the moment.
