Cycle paths and cycle lanes need to allow for unconventional bicycles. A happy side effect is it makes the paths more accessible. Too many Sustrans national cycle paths are really only suitable for leisure cycling on trail bikes.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Oh you lovely creative creatures - stop apologising for your work! Stop making excuses for it!

Your work is valid. You don't need to say 'sorry for the' or 'sorry it's a bit' or sorry anything. Everyone here is learning - some people have been learning for longer than others. Every single one of us knows that sometimes the paint splodges or the pen wobbles or we mess up somewhere.

It's fineeeee. You're fine. Own it, and carry on. <3 :bear_hugs: :bob_ross: :bowie_stardust:

Me: A MIDI pickup for my guitar sounds like something that would really boost my productivity and composition workflow.

Peppermint wine in the bottle - very sweet and not at all dry! The mead on the other hand is very dry, almost like a white grape wine. Most of both was kegged with one bottle made as a gift for a friend.

If anyone is looking for a deeply unpleasant bodging experience, try fitting an older generation internal geared hub unicycle with a disc brake.

Peppermint wine and peppermint mead. Hopefully this doesn't come out like mouthwash!

Got my 'absolutely not a British tourist' shorts ready for my trip to the States!

What do you do when you're still nursing a knee injury sustained 3 weeks ago due to a unicycle crash? Rebuild the unicycle with a faster, lighter carbon fibre wheel of course!

If anyone was wondering about riding a unicycle along Monsal Trail in the Peak District, I definitely recommend it. Views for daays

Liquorice wine attempt 2 - a slightly lighter colour than the first one for some reason! A lot weaker on the alcohol but a lot stronger on the liquorice flavour!

The liquorice """Wine""" is bottled - tastes strong and fiery, like brandy, but the liquorice flavour is definitely there! Time to age it in the shed!

Liquorice """Wine""" update: THE COLOUR HAS FINALLY TURNED! What an absolute beauty. Bottling day this weekend I think!

Racked my liquorice hooch to a secondary, still looking sandy - hopefully that'll settle!
