Tidiness certainly can be over-rated, although less so in the physical space than in digital space where searching is so much fast. Or, as I used to say of one long-term partner:

"A place for everything, and everything in a place."

Absolutely fascinating, and just a teeny bit disquieting. I love the idea of a fish-filled moat to keep them in. I'll probably stick this in the next newsletter.

Please Sir,

What does hypeisis mean?

The internet does not know and keeps thinking I mean hypnosis, which I do not.

Thanks

Is there no way to stop the idiocy of having to prove I am a human when I try to use my phone to access a site “protected” by @cloudflare?

I went to your site at https://simulacrum.party/, as advertised in your profile, to see what your interests might be, with a view to making a sensible suggestion. It returned a 404. So, you know, maybe tech is hard?

I have Chrome installed for one reason only: to chat with a good friend who won't use anything else. I used to use Adium, but it won't do it any more. What are my alternatives to interact with Google Hangouts?

I too have been ignoring Spotify's apparently magical Discover Weekly these past several weeks, not because I was feeling algorithmicly manipulated, but because I've just had more of a hankering to listen to whole albums. Unfortunately, unlike Phil Gyford, even when I was doing Discover Weekly regularly, it didn't seem to surface anyone in particular for me. Maybe I should try again.

Watched The Right Stuff, which I had never seen, for the obvious reason, and was very pleased to have done so. 🎥

Replied to a post on ruk.ca :

I was tempted by a fully electric car earlier this summer, but the cruel fact is that in a city or apartments, in which we have no access to a garage (or "box" as they are known here) there just wouldn't be any way to re-fuel. So I got a hybrid. Then, over the past few weeks, the city has been hard at work installing two charging stations on the corner. Currently they are not yet functional, and occupied by gas-guzzling SUVs.

When they are functional, I wonder how the city plans to keep other cars from occupying the spaces. I suspect they won't.
