Today I happened across two wiseacres on Twitter -- and no I am not going to bother with a link -- who make me glad I am able to say nothing, there, in return. Turning off RTs doesn't help either, when people will insist on quote RTs when they have nothing of substance to add.

I fully endorse this proposal.

I'm prompted to note that the sounds our kettle makes depend on how recently it has been de-scaled, and I have no idea why that should be so. Our water is very hard, so I have observed this often, and it mystifies me.

I think it is a splendid idea to revisit indiewebify.me and reorient the expectations around that page. It does suggest that one fiddle with HTML, and that might well be off-putting if one is new to IndieWeb.

Hey, @FAOstatistics! http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#home has been unreachable for more than 24 hours. What's up?

Last night we watched The Rose Tattoo on iTunes. Strange film, shot on Key West, which was why we watched it, with Anna Magnina and Burt Lancaster. She plays a woman widowed by her cheating husband, who eventually falls for Burt. Dated, histrionic, fun. Tennessee Williams wrote. Now, a competition: who was the worst young Italian? Burt, in this, or Warren Beatty in The Roman Spring of Mrs Stone, another Williams classic?

Replied to a post on dezz.ie :

As a gardener myself, albeit without an actual garden, only a terrace full of pots, I could really relate to what Dezz.ie had to say.

But the really cool thing is that pink banner at the top of her site, and how it occupies the full window at any height until you scroll past it. That's intentional.

John Naughton asks: Also: isn’t herd immunity about vaccination, not infection?

Nope, it is about immunity. That may be the result of prior infection, or it may be the result of vaccination. Either way, what matters is the percentage of contacts who are susceptible.

Kudos to @Cockos for offering a temporary Reaper license to anyone who needs one to work from home.
