The basic premise that "If the US lost the moon" we would be in a different place now. It is really compelling stuff. I can see that happening. Wow. "For all mankind".

Do people have "limbo" days? I have had one today because my daughter is getting married tomorrow, so like everything is ready but can't do any work, and people coming and going and nothing happening. It is weird.

Apple really have done M1 well haven't they? Single binaries with intel and M1 in them. Running intel binaries seamlessly with conversion to M1 on first run. I changed from intel to M1 and it has been a doddle - everything just works. Well done.

Wow, latest , native M1 code, impressive.

Someone in my office mistyped copy+paste and ended up as creepy pasta, and I really did not work out what they meant - this is clearly it!

This is @NHSDigital and @WelshGovernment expecting me to change my personal information to suit them, when GDPR actually requires the other way around - I have a *right* to rectification - for them to correct my data. My email *is* fewer than 7 characters, as a matter of fact.

I had not realised people did this, but seems like fun (for next weekend). I ended up updating my QR code library to be a bit smarter with images in the padding (all correct Reed Solomon on that!). github.com/revk/QR

And yes I used vim the edit the template to pass to the command line :-)
