    I just deactivated my Facebook account. I never use it. I don't think there is an option to delete it.

    Well I just signed up for the 14K Ullswater Trail Race. Really looking forward to it. Not run a lot of distance since leaving the Army 7 years ago. Can't wait!

    Happy #FridYAY all. Have the day off from work. Got up early and took the dogs in to the Lake District. Forgot my phone though so couldn't take any pictures 😔

    Right. Pjuu. Good name? or not good name? Just to make sure it wasn't taken, I took the liberty of purchasing otter.social. Do you think we should change our name?

    Wow! That was an eventful #FridYAY. 12hrs at work, changed a load of legacy code over the last 2 weeks. Migration to AWS still in progress for another week but broke the back on it. Looking forward to getting some more time to work on Pjuu. Honestly, never thought I would say it, but Python 3 is nice!

    Happy #FridYAY all. Hopefully we will be upgrading Pjuu to a new version of Python tonight. Sorry in advance if there is any downtime. It should be minimal

    Sorry again for the downtime. The monitoring we put in place did not alert us 😟 I guess we need to go with a paid service.

    Well porting Pjuu to a newer version of Python has actually turned out to be pretty easy. https://github.com/pjuu/pjuu/pull/348 that is much faster than re-writing. We definitley need a new design around here soon.

    If any one is interested in the European directive Article 13 and what it could spell for sites which allow user uploaded content, heres a link:

    Hey all. I'm thinking about removing the character count on posts. What ae your thoughts?

    It may be nice to use Pjuu as somewhat of a blog. All your public posts are available at pjuu.com/<username>;

    ... well I bought an iPad. It's pretty cool. After everything that has gone on privacy wise recently. I think it's I appreciate Apple a lot more. I'm probably going to even get an iPhone.... That's hard to admit.
