At your nearest convenience please head to on the World Wide Web and after reading and digesting our good mantras and diatribes on the evils of Facebook and the like, consider signing up for your own account.

There most certainly will be bugs, and right now you can’t even sign in after you sign up.

  • There is a privacy policy and a terms and conditions… if you can’t click to see them when you sign up, please let us know, and we’ll give you a chance to slowly back away after reading them if you don’t like what you read — no hard feelings.

  • They’re very similar to the Terms and Privacy Policies found here: and but we’re also not logging IP addresses again (same deal applies to, if you’re wondering…)

But: due to an unfortunate link by someone we no longer want to have anything to do with, ever, we’ve been forced to launch now, a few hours ahead of schedule. Minus a support forum, which we’d hoped would be a cool feature, but hey ho… if you have any suggestions for free software sites like Get Satisfaction or Stack Overflow, please send them our way…

As ever, we are here to help and serve you, so please send questions and feedback our way and we’ll do our best to get back to you admit all the screaming hordes of fans this new website will surely not bring us.

Into the future!

Your pals, - Rob and Matt

It’s my belief that history is a wheel. “Inconsistency is my very essence,” says the wheel. “Rise up on my spokes if you like but don’t complain when you’re cast back down into the depths. Good time pass away, but then so do the bad. Mutability is our tragedy, but it’s also our hope. The worst of time, like the best, are always passing away.”

Another GNU social mockup.

Maymockup-sep2010.pngbe you've seen some of the GNU social mockups on the development site. Well, for our own version of GNU social (hereby called simply 'social') we have our own design in mind...

Matt has become somewhat obsessed with this program called Pencil -- it's free software, naturally, as well as being awesome -- and future designs will no doubt appear in similar form until we actually get around to building it.

Anyone fancy taking a stab at this next stage?
