Moving Blog and Round Up

How many blog posts in the blogosphere start with “Well its been a while since”, or “I have not posted in a while”, or something along the lines of not posting in a very long time. 🙂 I will skip that and just jump into a post.

First up! I moved the blog from the main root domain to a sub domain of blog.sociallysour.org.. I have done this and moved it back a few times over the years. For now I am back to the idea of having the blog on its own subdomain. The root domain will be a splash type page to feed the other things I do. I have been active in using GNUSocial, think of it as a decentralized twitter you can host yourself. Most people use Mastodon and don’t host there own instances.. But I like to tinker, so using the FSF less popular GNUSocial was my cup of tea. Plus it has way less dependency’s than Mastodon and is still able to exchange with the other people in the “Fediverse“. If anyone cool would like a gnu.sociallysour.org account drop me a line and I will hook you up. I have deleted or stopped using most all social networking sites that I do not host myself or control the content.

In other news Oct 17th 2018 Canada was the 2nd and largest country in the world thus far to legalize recreational cannabis. I am happy to say that the country is still standing and people are not stoned and passed out int he streets (any more than normal).. It’s an interesting roll (lol) out in Canada that each Province did its own thing.. Places like Quebec as far as I know do not allow people to grow there own at home. All Provinces but Ontario have physical stores, and Ontario only has online mail ordering. With all the differences it will be interesting to see which places change and move to other systems over time. Ontario is going to get physical stores in 6 months, but they will be privatized stores and not an offical OCS Store.

I think that’s it for now.. See if I can remember to check back here and post something more often now. But you can always check out my micro blogging at https://gnu.sociallysour.org/hurt138
