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.

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.

There's no way I know of to find old spam that came into WithKnown while I was not getting notifications. I had thought that my scheme of jumping on spam as soon as possible after receiving (restarted) notifications had found them all. But no. Today surfaced a bookmark post that had accumulated 10 spams since August 2018.

Lotta continua!

Just wondering, what's so bad, the way Hans sees it, about the way Italy has handled the coronavirus?

Woke to an unsettling SMS and email from Ryanair telling me the return flight at the end of March had been cancelled. What about the outbound flight? I need to decide what to do.
