Bea Groves-McDaniel

          I received my new certificate:

          It's Chris Maples birthday! Yay! 😄

          Just a reminder to all Big Ideas and Great Thinkers folk to let me know any ideas they might have for next term's courses. You can post 'em here, or email me by clicking the drop=down arrow at top-right and choosing Email Bea.

          Katie Hope Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Tolstoy

          Bea Groves-McDaniel Good-oh! Tolstoi seems a big possible!

          Katie Hope I've seen it said that Tolstoy influenced Gandhi who influenced MLK who influenced was it Mandela?

          Bea Groves-McDaniel But also influenced Wittgenstein

          Katie Hope of course, especially The Gospel in Brief and that story of it being the only book in the shop when he was in the army

          Changed the default avatar icons to the 'Human+' symbol, as it's a little less dull :-)

          Hi Toni! BitDefender was a little over zealous I think :-)

          Bea Groves-McDaniel Not yet! Message me a link, or if you don't mind BeaBook people seeing it, then post it here.

          Black Friday? How about Black Sunday instead?


          You've just got yer breakout rooms organised, everything is pootling along happily... and then Zoom decides to dump you out and refuse to let you back in. To your own meeting, no less!

          After a reboot and login, panic over. Ruddy computers 😏

          Just added a new 'emal me' contact item to the Logout menu, top-right.
          All the left sidebar items should be functional (if a little slow at times -- I'm working on it), and you are invited to test stuff.

          I also hope the current colour and layout are OK? There are other themes I could apply, but as yet OSSN hasn't the ability to let a user select their own theme. I'm sure that will come with time.

          I have no idea why text is full justified in posts... but I'll try to correct it if I can. It's a bit irritating.

          Dan Everett, talking about his time and experiences with the Piraha people, in Brazil:

          Changed the BeaBook theme so it's a little less obviously a Facebook fakebook. But let me know if you prefer the previous version.
