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.

This feels a bit mad, but on the other hand, my partner is an epidemiologist working actively on COVID-19, so… 😷👐

Did a £250 online grocery order of non-perishables, in case there's a good reason to avoid leaving the house for a while...

The person sitting next to me has pulled their desk out of alignment from the row by about 6cm and my brain has immediately classified them as deranged.

How do you pronounce `sudo`?

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.

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: weblog.rubyonrails.org/2019/11

What version are you running for your main project? (please reply if you're not using Rails, that's interesting too!)

It is a lovely day in Brexit Britain, and I am an annoying goose.

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...”

(Boris Johnson, theguardian.com/politics/2019/)

We are all sick of Brexit, yes, but that doesn’t mean we agree with your approach in the slightest!
