  3. @kat Oh, I do. The knife-wielding maniacs always nod hello as you pass them in the street. The Aryan Vengeance Motorcycle Club, the Thirty-something Grandma's Group, the annual Foetal Alcohol Toddlers' Parade: these are the things you miss out on if you live in the big city.

  4. This is shocking. When did the # Hotel start staying open past 8pm? This is going to kill the tradition of sitting in the gutter with a sixpack of rum & coke and a box of period pain pills. http://ur1.ca/qs6y2

  6. @luke Non-free drivers seemed an acceptable compromise to support old hardware; # seemed the last proprietary hold-out in a war we'd won… Then # launched their non-free app store, I went back to install # on recent hardware and… #! I thought we fixed this!

  9. How is it that the # as a series of tubes is immediately considered ridiculous, but considering human beings as "hard wired", for anything, gets solemn nods?

  10. I agree with this considered opinion on something of utterly zero consequence: http://andydrewz64.blogspot.com.au/2016/11/doctor-who-or-doctor.html #

  14. @chalkahlom I shall take it all the way to the top, and send a strongly-worded letter to John Lloyd at his pied-à-terre in a corner of Valentine Dyall's old drinks cabinet at Broadcasting House.

  15. Last week's Now Show # is 403 Forbidden. # Radio 4, why hast thou forsaken me?! At least it wasn't the News Quiz.

  18. # I love # # In dial-up days `wget -c [URL]` was essential. Now it's still often easier, and certainly feels more "real", to open a terminal than entrust a web browser with downloading a stock-photo-bloated PDF. https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/wget.html
