I'm not saying you need to panic buy anything, but now is the time to start getting _mentally_ prepared for some significant changes to daily life with COVID-19.
Start figuring out how you're going to handle any social distancing measures, and how you can work from home, if (when) general transmission gets going in your area.
Thinking about what you might need to do now will put you in a much better position to actually do it when the time comes.
I've got to say, I really like these Air Pods Pro.
The noise cancelling is excellent, transparency is great when dealing with traffic and stuff, and switching from computer to phone and back is a single click instead of a 10 second process like with my other (admittedly much cheaper) Bluetooth earphones.
Plus, charging in the case is fast and means I basically never have to worry about the pods themselves being charged.

I’m not a big fan of any of the parties I can vote for, but removing Boris Johnson et al from power is more important than any allegiance.
There is no “getting Brexit done”; just years of post-withdrawal agreement negotiations to end up worse than what we have now.
It’s time for us ALL to put nation before party and vote tactically, not tribally.
Could this be Twitter realising that it's increasingly out-of-control silo of propaganda is going to be on the wrong side of history? 🙏

Rails 6.0.1 was released a few days back: https://weblog.rubyonrails.org/2019/11/5/Rails-6-0-1-released/
What version are you running for your main project? (please reply if you're not using Rails, that's interesting too!)

Wrote something about my experience of the last fortnight in politics in London.
When a politician talks about “what the public wants”, it’s almost always actually about what they want.
“We’ve spent a long time trying to sort of fudge this thing and I think the British public really want us to get out. They don’t want more dither and delay...”
We are all sick of Brexit, yes, but that doesn’t mean we agree with your approach in the slightest!
Also, this "delivering the will of the people" rhetoric -- isn't it more important to be delivering the will of the people as it is _right now_ than as it was three years ago?
Can the Brexiteers really claim to know the will of all the 15-17yr olds who were totally unrepresented in the referendum?
Watching parliament for the last few days has led me to the conclusion that we need fundamental electoral reform to avoid this kind of impasse.
The last three years have been a case study of what happens when a government refuses to compromise, yet has no clear majority.
Some form of proportional representation would make coalition governments the norm, and force fundamental compromise as the only effective means of getting anything done.
