This morning, sitting outside a cafe that was actually closed because of the lockdown here, Syncthing made a believer of me.
I enjoyed, if that's the right word, giving blood and then plasma regularly in the UK. Since moving to Italy, I have tried a couple of times to donate, but they won't have me, on the grounds that I lived in the UK during BSE. I know I shouldn't, but I take it personally.

The internet couldn’t make its mind up. Cut an X. Cut a Y. Just a slit will do. Round the equator. Round the poles. Boil, steam, roast, microwave.

MTAOFC says to peel a strip (I cut a slit) put them in cold water, bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Then pull them out three at a time and peel. And by golly if it wasn’t pretty much OK. Better than boiling for longer and better than roasting.pesos
