Against all odds and with a vain hope, I continue to submit applications to find work in Europe. Next year, it gets even more fucky. Thanks UK.

Going to start hosting some of my old research papers on Gemini for the lols. Not like I'm ever going to do my PhD.


And now thanks to @sir and his wonderful toolbox I have a proxy up and running:

This stuff is delightfully simple and I think I love it.

Just for gits and shiggles I thought I'd give a look in. What a lovely little protocol. I've started putting some writing on there for fun, seems like the perfect place for a small text-focused blog.


I spent a few days learning LaTeX specifically so I could write reports dunking on how bad my company is.

Funkwhale 1.0.1 has been released! It's a small release that brings a couple enhancements and several fixes for issues that could break installation and upgrades.

As usual, the full changelog and upgrade instructions are available at

Happy upgrade!

Happy Wednesday, Funkwhalers!

We're currently auditing the #Funkwhale documentation and looking for spots that need updating, clarification, etc. to make it easier for people to contribute.

If anyone here would like to help look through and/or and give us some feedback, that would be very appreciated!

COVID-adjacent, ukpol 

Dear young people of the UK,

Old people ruined your lives with their idiotic right-wing views and bigotry towards things they don't understand. That much is true. But we are the ones spreading the virus by insisting on breaking the rules.

Don't be thick, don't get people sick.

This little guy is coming to live with me this weekend

It's been over 6 years since I left Hong Kong.

European giant house spiders are my least favourite thing to find indoors, but they look nice when moved to the garden.

Literally any git forge would be better than Bitbucket.

I have to teach three people how to develop using git.


I'm not allowed to teach them using git-send-email, I have to use Bitbucket.


@agateblue I've been discovering scrobbling because of Funkwhale!

The new scrobbler funkwhale plugin works great, I'm quite happy with it!

I've redesigned the internals to use the API v2 of which is more reliable than their deprecated v1

CFO has officially informed the business of my move to integrations development. The clock is now ticking for them to back fill my position (which they should have done 8 months ago)

Funkwhale 1.0 - scrobbler plugin 

With the new plugin system, we'be bundled our first plugin, which allows you to scrobble to and other compatible implementations (such as Listenbrainz).

Once the plugin is activated on the server (via the FUNKWHALE_PLUGINS=funkwhale_api.contrib.scrobbler env var), you can visit your user settings, click "Manage plugins" et voilà!
