This is definitely the last experiment.

Everything is back to monochrome except for the Forwarder. This time I have boosted the saturation of the red channel to give the Forwarder more ooomph!

Last experiment on this photo (I think).

I have re-colourised the mountain in the background as well as the Forwarder in the foreground.

Hmmm, I'm not sure about this experiment.

My OH is looking after the neighbour's hens during the holiday period.

It appears one of the hens has been ostracised by the others. During the day there are wee groups of hens outside, except this one hen on its own. At night the hens are all huddled together on their perches, except this one which is as far away from the others as possible.

Is it a loner or do the others not like this hen? I wonder what happened. ๐Ÿ”

This is cool. Embeddable maps powered by OSM - akin to Google MyMaps, but with less Google:

The sun was mostly obscured by clouds, except for a patch above the mountain in the background. That gave nice colour on the mountain, but the forwarder was a bit dull.

Consequently, the subject might work quite well in monochrome.

What do you think?

Today's trail pictures.
17 and change miles in glorious weather. The forecast was for the cloud to be below the higher peaks, so headed out to see if I could take advantage of the inversion and get above it. Did at times, but to be honest there was little cloud at all in some areas. Blue skies made up for that ๐Ÿ˜€

The Komatsu Forwarder 865 is an older model, introduced in 2012 and now discontinued.

This video shows a successor model, the 895, in operation. Note how quiet it is inside the cab.

You'll be familiar with the old meme, now updated for Brexit:

"...and if you believe that, I have a ferry service to sell you."

Freedom in a Box

My talk about privacy, decentralization, self-hosting, freedom of speech and FreedomBox.

It's a non-technical talk meant to spread awareness about the dangers of mass surveillance and the alternatives that exist to centralized systems.

Links to slides are in the video description.

Delivered at ThoughtWorks Hyderabad for the 46th edition of GeekNight on 2nd Jan, 2019.

I've just noticed that HM Revenue & Customs will be *requiring* VAT returns be made using 3rd party software, from April 2019 onwards.

Looks like all the suppliers are commercial & closed source.

So, to make payments to the government, VAT registered businesses will have buy software.
