An inspiring day spent showing my RHE colleagues around affordable housing projects in rural Monmouthshire. It was very reassuring to know that both Rachel from Pembrokeshire and Keith from Ceredigion are passionate about their roles and the pressing need to deliver more affordable housing for local people throughout Wales. We were joined in Tintern by Sally Meyrick, the affordable housing officer for MCC.

Gadawais y baddon adar ar camera trwy'r dydd heddiw. Mae dipyn bach o ddŵr yn gallu gwneud lot o wahaniaeth.

I left the camera on the bird bath through the day today. A small amount of water can make a lot of difference.

Looking to move over here from Twitter, where I'm part of a great Mountain Bike community, and looking for something similar over on here.

Anyone know of anything relevant?

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

When I was editor-in-chief of Physics Today magazine, I solicited this article about the history of science in Wales. Here's how the author, Iwan Rhys Morus, justified the article: "Historians of science have tended not to pay much attention to little countries like Wales, just as Welsh historians have paid little attention to science. . . [But] Looking at science in a small country is a good way of getting at why place does matter." physicstoday.scitation.org/doi

Ro'n i wedi anghofio am Tŵt! Mi wnes i'r cyfrif yma tua thair blynedd yn ôl ond wedyn anghofio amdano fo. / I had forgotten about Tŵt. I made this account about three years ago but then forgot about it.

Hi. Like many others, I've created an account here, in case I find T*******r becomes unbearable.

Mostly I'll probably toot about food and drink. And books, bikes and rugby. Indy-curious too, times being what they are.
