The IPv6 certification is actually pretty good fun. I've really enjoyed working through it so far, and when I have some more time on my hands I'll probably chip off a few more "levels".

I've just updated my website

sethmb.xyz

Not sure how I feel about it right now, so I'll likely push more changes to it over the coming days/weeks.

I've not had the best day today, but I definitely have my faith in humanity.

I got stuck at the side of the road due to some engine problems, and within 20 minutes two people had stopped to check if we were okay. The first one just checked if we needed water or food and if we had help coming - which was very kind.

The second guy to stop actually fixed the engine (albeit temporarily it did get us home).

The recovery team were going to take 6 hours to arrive.

People are amazing.

I've got a driving test on Monday morning.

My car developed a fault Friday evening, so I can't get it fixed before the test.

So I have been practising in my dad's car because I could take the test in that. It just broke down.

Because the DVSA doesn't really work at the moment, I'll have to wait at least 3 months before I can book my next test.

You can't make this up 😭

I ordered a badge from @fsfe a few days ago and today this arrived.

Needless to say I think I have enough stickers now.

Today I did my last ever A level exam. I feel so free.

is getting quite drastic with their ad-blocker blocker measures.

Maybe it's time to try and grow our and YouTube alternative communities.

I find this weirdly fascinating. Some and some have created a demilitarised zone of sorts.

Workers are moving down lines and guards from each group are standing face to face.

Is there anyone involved with who would be interested in doing a talk to a computer science class (A level) about what you do, in the UK? Midlands area.

If you are, or know someone who might be, let me know as I'd love to try and organise something.

Used @organicmaps on a hike earlier, was really impressed by the level of detail and the accuracy of @openstreetmap, so now I'm using @streetcomplete to contribute to OSM near me.

Didn't think I'd stumble across a Google Maps alternative that was actually this much better, wow.
