Pinned toot

I'm Puffinux, my interests are , , spaces, , , , , , (cycling), , , and novels, and . I'm a very practical, hands-on sort of person who's happiest halfway through a project, soldering late into the night with the radio on.

More recently I've been learning about cooperatives, communal living, intentional communities, tech / energy and alternative, self-sufficient lifestyles.

I seek to learn as much as I can so as to contribute back to communities and help create a future that we can be proud to leave for the next generation and beyond, rather than the slow-motion train crash we're currently victims of.

I'm very open to both teaching and being educated.

I'm also the current admin of wiki.sunbeam.city , so hit me up if you have questions related to our wiki, or want a wiki account with which to contribute.

Why the hell aren't there free public showers?
How are you supposed to say you care what happens to the homeless if you aren't providing this service? We're at a point where "not getting hired for hygiene" is just code for "we don't hire people who aren't financially stable enough already to have their own private hygiene facilities".

If you want to show #PeerTube to friends but you're worried about NSFW videos appearing on the front page, you could try showing them this instance:

peertube.social

A couple of other safe interesting instances too:

VidCommons: a collection of creative commons and public domain films
vidcommons.org

Blender: the official PeerTube instance for the Blender foundation, including their films
video.blender.org

Baobab trees are some of Madagascar's most iconic trees, with 6 out of the 9 known species growing there. They can live for over 2000 years, and their trunks can grow to over 15m in diameter.

Others can also be found growing in Southern Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and Australia. Interestingly, the Australian and African species are nearly identical, despite nearly 100 million years being separated.

Accidentally opened a youtube video in the app, and it started playing a T-Mobile ad about unlimited data. Wonder if youtube allows targetting ads on people who are on data connections

Shout-out to The Bike Project in London, who take second-hand bikes, fix them up, and give them to refugees.

They also sell some of them to non-migrants to fund their running costs.

If you are in London and have an old broken bike you don't want, or you are in the market for a new one, they are worth knowing about!

for today is a rather sweet little daff named:
Narcissus 'Jack Snipe'

It's a miniature trumpet daffodil (only 30cms high at most) in the cyclamineus narcissus group, with dainty swept back petals. It doesn't mind partial shade, and grows well in containers as well as in the ground.
