There isn't much to say about me, but I'm a young lass living in Hampshire who's interested in walking, climbing, photography, computers, and all the usual gumpf.

This site contains lots of random stuff for/about/belonging to me that you may find of interest or use.

Pride

Occasionally, I get asked why I attend Pride parades.
Pride was born out of the fight for equality, both equal rights and equal treatment. Even in just the LGBT sense, neither are universal yet.

Comms Data Bill and privacy

Today, the Lords discuss adding an "amendment" to an already huge bill.
This amendment? It consists of guts of a previous bill that has been read, reviewed and declined by a group of MPs and Lords as unsuitable and inappropriate, raising many concerns, none of which have yet been addressed.

Transgender and Scouting

I've been an Explorer Scout leader in Itchen North, Hampshire since around 2006, after coming all the way up from Beavers.
Around about 13, I became consciously aware of some gender confusion in my life, feeling like I should have been female. Needless to say, I kept this to myself as I had no idea why, or if anyone else had similar thoughts. Looking back, there are lots of feelings and things that have happened that now make sense.

Spam mailing lists

I received an email today offering to sell me a spam mailing list.

Hi,

Would you be interested in acquiring a mailing list for your company marketing use?

"Case dismissed"

Well, the court case with Communicado happened on Monday and it went pretty much as expected.
Essentially the judge dismissed the claim because there were no quantifiable damages.
The time spent dealing with the spam and the money we spend on services to protect ourselves do not count as "damages" and so are not able to be claimed.
