Schadenfuck A term soon to be adopted by remainers to describe their feelings when confronted with the ongoing Brexit car crash – an unusual combination of complete vindication and absolute abject horror (coined by the educationalist Sam Freedman).

Irony: Dry weather optimised bicycle chain lube being sold in Scotland.

Just witnessed whilst walking the dogs: a cyclist riding past a group of folks just hanging out and then throwing an egg at them.

The cyclist missed, but the group didn't.

Top-tip: when doing such a "prank" make sure you can out-pedal the fastest sprinter in the group, or things will end badly for you.

The latest episode of "The Naked Scientists" podcast was about catalysts and had a but about beer.

A new Linux smartphone is coming!

With an affordable price, too. Pine64 is behind this device running KDE Plasma.

KDE Neon creator Jonathan Riddell revealed this at Open Source Summit and it will be called PinePhone.

You can expect this open source Linux smartphone to cost $100+ for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage.

So I got the renewal in for my motorcycle insurance. £400+, yikes!
Within 15+ years no claims, I decided to shop around and got a comparable to cover my modified motorcycle *and* leathers etc for less than half price.
Who with?
The same company!

@WelshPixie hi! I've been AFK for a bit; what happened with your buddy and the weird evangelical shenanigans?

Sorry for the brief outage. MDADM had pulled a drive from the RAID and the server needed a bit of TLC.
All went well and props to MDADM for making the whole process just so easy.
SoftRAID for life!

Browsing the "Forbidden Books" bundle from Humble Bundle and came across this.

A bit of irony overload, no?

Having this now. Really rich and stouty. No, wait, really sharky. It's all teeth. Fantastic!

Supermarkets use the £1/1€ deposit locks to ensure you will return the trolley.
They also give out free "trolley coins" which are of no value.
So they are spending money on the locks and then on bypassing their own locks.
*WHY?*
It makes no sense.

Arrived at the source.
Drygate Brewery tap, Glasgow, Scotland.

Wander Beyond Brewing, "Bloom", Imperial Black Ice-cream IPA.
This stuff is AMAZING. Like liquid Black Forest Gateaux.

Aaaaannnnd, we're back.
Server survived the move. Huzzah!
