    “We handed you a pile of cold horse droppings on the understanding that you would change it into diamonds and rulership of the known world.

    “As you have failed to deliver these things, we have no confidence in you.”

  • Downside of working from home: spending lunch peeling the spuds to get the stew on for tonight.

    Upside of working from home: stew tonight.

  • /me declares RSS bankruptcy.

  • Starting to get a little bit excited about the Good Omens series.

  • Whatever your opinions of modern country music, Brad Paisley can fairly play his guitar.

  • Learning about the history of rationing in the UK. No reason.

  • I think we’re getting all the rain we didn’t get over the summer 😮☔️🌊

  • Giving Aldi’s 8.5p/litre diet cola a go. I wouldn’t say I have high expectations, but let’s see.

  • 🎬 Incredibles 2, at last. I laughed and laughed and laughed. Some sharply observed commentary on relationships and family life, too.

  • When your todo list app has a cache database that’s over half a gigabyte 😮

  • 📺 I caught up on the last few episodes of Cloak & Dagger last night. I like it a lot. It’s a bit more thoughtful than (most of) the Netflix/Marvel shows. Looking forward to seeing where season 2 goes and how Mayhem fits in.

  • Wanted: a way to automatically scrobble any Apple Music play, on any device, to Last.fm. The Apple Music web API has a “recently played” endpoint, but it doesn’t include timestamps. I’d want them for deduping and ordering :(

  • The combination of cookie notifications and GDPR popups on websites has me thoroughly trained to just click “Accept” everywhere. I’m sure that wasn’t the point of the legislation, but that’s what you get.

    And I care about this stuff.

  • Currently wondering why “UI like Slack” is a selling point.

  • Who knew unicycle orienteering is a thing?

  • Chatsworth House

  • Have not internetted in eight days. Did I miss anything?

  • 🌧️⛈️ Woo!

  • Aargh. Today was the last day of the school year (finally!) and the children are wired to the moon and will not go to sleep.

  • I don’t like beer, but I am wearing cargo shorts.


  • I hear a bit of thunder in the distance. #WeatherReportsAsAService

  • Is there some tradition or something that the Cabinet can’t sit at a bigger table they can all fit around comfortably, or meet in a bigger room? “To be part of the Government you must relinquish any personal space.”


  • It’s another day, and I’m still listening to Brad Paisley 🎵

    This is an unexpected development.

  • A little respite today, with a max of only 24º forecast, before it hits 28º tomorrow and up over 30º by the weekend.

    Jings, I hope the forecast is wrong.

    Yes, I am complaining about the weather 😄

  • Hands up if you’ve spent your Friday morning debugging PDFs in a hex editor.
