    I was walking the dog yesterday down by the river and looks like a family of Otters have moved in. Did get chance to get pictures but I’ll go again this evening.

    Morning all,

    Again, I'm trying to make time to work on re-writing Pjuu in an effor to re-kidle my love for working on it.

    A lot has changed on the web since Pjuu was written. I have some questions and your feedback would be appreciated. Questions in the comments.

    Today is bad day for IT in the UK. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2023/09/today-uk-parliament-undermined-privacy-security-and-freedom-all-internet-users

    I don't know what this means for Pjuu at this point. The site/software is maintained by ourselves and not an entity so I'm unsure at this point.

    I never thought that the UK would become a true survelance state but it has. The book 1984 came out of this country and we've clearly learned nothing from it.

    I've been following the AI revolution quite carefully. As would be expected for someone who run a website that still looks like it was 10 years ago, I was skepitical. But, it's amazing! What it can conjure from the simplest inputs it uterly outstanding. I don't trust it though. But I am watching. OpenAI should go back to being Open. Linux worked well because of it's openness they should keep that in mind. Microsoft may want the opposite but that's a failing platform, Azure runs on Linux.

    Afternoon everyone. I'm currently experimenting with some patterns for re-writing Pjuu. This is coming at a good time as I'm building a very large application for work where these patterns will be useful. I'll try keep people updated on progress before I'm ready to open it to the world.

    Sorry again guys. I got the alert about the SSL but unfortunatley me and @ant were very far away from computers.

    Well I made the wrong decision; concentrating on privacy. We we're around a few years before Mastodon and at the time privacy was my biggest concern with social networks. I didn't see how federation would solve the privacy issue but now, 10 years after I first thought of Pjuu I can assert I was incorrect. We don't solve the privacy concerns, there is nothing here that couldn't be solved by being a Fediverse node whilst still allowing us to chat with others... more in the comments.

    ☹️ I did add uptime monitoring but some reason it never pinged me about the SSL. Sorry all.

    Hi everyone 👋🏼

    We're planning on moving Pjuu's hosting over the next few weeks, just letting you all know in advance that there will be some planned down time coming. We're planning on moving to AWS. The cost of hosting there when I reserve the instances is substantially lower and we're already using S3 for the CDN so hopefully uploads will be quicker.

    Sorry everyone. Unfortunatley our nginx wasn't restarted after the certificate upgrade and it went un-noticed.

    Well finally moved in to my new house. Have everything pretty much set up and have 4G internet which isn't to bad considering I live in the country

    Apologies for the downtime again. The hook to restart the web server when the certificate updates clearly hasn't worked. I will look in to it.
