@kim_harding @theferret And moaning to camera that "they don't want their kids to have to hide in a cupboard if they say they're English"; "no one serves meat and two veg any more"; and "we used to be a country of tea-drinkers, now it's coffee."
Word for word.

Shamelessly pinched from the World Bollard Association ™️

Think Asimov at his most boring when Hari Sheldon is explaining things.

Ah well.

I really enjoyed 3 Body Problem on Netflix

Remembered I'd read the first volume on Kindle unlimited ages ago but bought the trilogy

The second book is so hard to read. Full of people making speeches explaining things, like the SF written in the 1950s.

Really interesting characters with fascinating internal lives, but those speeches, just not necessary.

Needed a really good edit, but maybe it works in the original literary tradition.

Sticking with it because I want to know what happens.

Don't get me started on Ubuntu changing how system services are loaded because pretty a few years ago.

Has any other Linux head come across "doas"?

Man pages claim it's easier and better than sudo.

I just wanna get stuff done, why did someone solve a solved problem instead of doing something useful?

A sad day for human rights and a terrifying one for asylum seekers in the UK, who are made scapegoats for a failing government.

I was looking for a new gig because the company I work for is totally under resourced and I basically couldn't do my job.

They're offering me redundancy

That makes life a lot easier.

The good news:
Shabana Mahmood, the Labour shadow justice secretary has come out forcefully in support of the ECHR....

The bad news:
Shabana Mahmood, the Labour shadow justice secretary thinks the solution to the UK prison problem is to build more prisons....

And while she is right, 'Change will not happen overnight... We cannot wave a magic wand & return our legal system to its former glory'... lets hope at least the mood music will change quickly!
