No avatars for me, either. Also, all my notifications have stopped.

Good job you didn't - it might have gone viral.

A word of advice, if you'll indulge me...

Most people give up on self-sufficiency because it's next to impossible. Think of it, instead, as a process of moving towards self-sufficiency. To my mind, the goal is to de-centralise as much as possible, both for yourself and your community. Grow some food between you and swap, use farmers' markets and local shops, exchange your time and services with each other, develop a local currency, form little groups to deal with all the things that come up, join the Agora - things like that. We can't do everything for ourselves - that's why there's so many of us.

Aim for somewhere between self-sufficiency and centralisation - I think that's a good and practical ambition.

I thought it was a "murder of crows", no?

Not if there's just caws...


Ain't I a stinker? ;)

So sad.

When I was very young, about 8 or 9, I came across two Asterix books in a tourist shop in Southport. I could only afford one, which I bought, and then (I'm ashamed to admit) I stole the other. It's the only book I ever pinched - and got a good hiding for it when I got home. It didn't dampen my love for Asterix, though, a love which has only grown over the years. Goscinny and Uderzo were the first comic creators whose names I learned and Asterix was the first comic I fell in love with.
