I'm going to forget this in about twenty-five minutes… So here it is for posterity.
I have just been required to sign a self-statement stating that my clean Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) certificate remains accurate.
So… I have said “Yes” to the question “Can you make a personal assurance regarding the system designed to avoid reliance on personal assurances?”
This comprehensive article from Alf Hornborg in The Conversation is exactly my position on environmental/economic change.
“The only way to change the game is to redesign its most basic rules. To attribute climate change to an abstract system called capitalism – but without challenging the idea of all-purpose money – is to deny our own agency. The “system” is perpetuated every time we buy our groceries, regardless of whether we are radical activists or climate change deniers. It is difficult to identify culprits if we are all players in the same game. In agreeing to the rules, we have limited our potential collective agency. We have become the tools and servants of our own creation – all-purpose money.”
Still tinkering with the 360 camera.
Still getting to grips with the Insta360 One X…
Quite pleased with this daftness.
A twelve-minute boring but attractive tiny-planet.
And a draggable 360 timelapse of the same journey. You need to watch on YouTube for dragging to work. (It seems they don’t enable it in embedded frames… Hmm…)
I’ll find a sensible use for it at some point I expect.

More greatness just stumbled upon.
Quite often, I’ll achieve a great throwline throw over the perfect limb, only to lose it when trying to isolate it because the throwbag snags on the far side and jumps clear of the limb I want. This alternative approach occurred to me this morning:
This might be old news to seasoned climbers, but it only occurred to me today…
Cor! What a great voice!
My favourite musician of the moment, and at last there’s a decent introduction to her online. Enjoy. She’s prodigal.
