@Eden @hope @vector @mcmoots As far as we've been able to tell it was Sidekiq playing up. I've rebooted the server and so far it looks like it's behaving better. At least, I can now post images from both web and Amaroq again.
Please let me know if any of you see ongoing issues. It may take Sidekiq a while to catch up on federation, but local-specific issues should be resolved.
@dantheclamman Mine too. 100% of the sample, let’s publish our result!

One thing about yesterday's election: I think Canada has outdone Lord Buckethead https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/oct/12/canada-federal-election-maxime-bernier-rhino-party
@JordiGH It was fascinating looking at how the Victoria riding's PP candidate presented her party vs what Maxime Bernier likes to talk about.
Oh, and don't forget the other Maxime Bernier, who is possibly my favourite candidate in any election ever.

Just found a website that functions similar to amazon but supports independent bookshops instead of bezos’ offshore accounts.
It gives you the option to choose a bookshop to support, so if you live miles from your favourite radical bookshop and they don’t sell online you could in theory support them this way.
I haven’t used them yet, but I heard about it through the Reading Solidarity Centre so it seems to have the support of independent shops.

@matias93 thank you, again, for helping me understand what’s going down.
@distel Oh! That's lovely, and I can see why.
@distel Oh, I love that idea!

@distel Thanks, that actually is helpful to know. I'm going for black linework for this one partly because I think it'll work well for this subject, but also because it does seem less intimidating.
If, as everyone says will happen, I end up wanting more tattoos after the first, I could easily imagine getting a life-sized colour http://www.californiaherps.com/frogs/images/pregillahu05.jpg eventually.
@rabbithearth Thanks! Just as with every drug infusion / blood sample, it's just going to be a matter of getting over the initial fear.
@distel Do you have ideas of specific designs/subjects?
