I'm all for figuring out ways to support those with incomes threatened by the pandemic, but the reasoning behind this seems bonkers

It seems like the argument is equivalent to "those who choose not to spend money commuting or at Pret, or on office rent, should have that money extracted from their pay/profits".

Maybe just... tax everyone who still has a job to help support those who don't?

Just used the Royal Mail package collection system for the first time. Worked perfectly, zero hassles πŸ‘

@thomasfuchs does the transformer make a hum when it's on? We got one for the opposite use (US appliances in Europe) and it's too loud to keep on while the appliance is in use. Which in our case is a lamp, so basically, never.

Me to dev: "We don't need search infrastructure for these records, there's only 8 of them, and all code needs to pull its weight since it all has to be maintained indefinitely."

@jarkko mine (and friends) frequently crashes when going to sleep. It's incredibly frustrating, compared to the previous version.

@floehopper I'm also using FeedBurner; I think in part because I wanted a bit of resilience if my site went down (you know how reliable Vanilla is!). I'll be curious to see if you find any alternatives...

Only just discovered that the tweet site now lets you log in to multiple accounts at the same time. That'll be handy for LRUG at least...

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who cares about keeping the build green...

... and then I remember that yes, I _am_ the only person who cares.

I tried out HEY for a couple of weeks. It's definitely opinionated! I'm not sure the opinions are quite for me, but it's encouraged me to think a bit more about my own email habits.
