@claudiom Penbwydd Hapus from a rather wet and wintery Wales!

Had my booster vaccine today. Very efficient at the local vaccine centre. I was jabbed and done within 4 minutes of my appointed time, 15 minutes wait to make sure there was no after effects and I was done and dusted.
Apart from a slight burning sensation in my arm for about 30 minutes I've had no other effects so far.

I pass this project regularly and I keep meaning to look up what's going on.

An archimedes screw hydro-power project!

Looking forward to seeing what comes of it. They reckon, 100kW, which is fab. Why there aren't more of these across all rivers I don't know.

We love the Slow Ways project. Many of us have probably walked Slow Ways routes without realising it! 🐌🚶

Support the project to link villages, towns and cities in Wales and the rest of the UK by walking a 'slow way' near you!

Here's their latest newsletter https://lnkd.in/dR9ZvTgS

Just a reminder that I run a wiki called Pass It On about where to send things at the end of their useful (to you) life.

It's really just focused on the UK at the moment - don't know if that will change in future.

The flying spaguetti monster has decided to send his son to earth too!

Fuel at my local station (one of the cheapest in the area) hit 146.9 pence per litre today. I'm expecting it hitting the wrong side of 150 by Xmas.

Been a long time since I went to a theatre, so tonight @gomez went to see Gomez.

Ok all you gurus out there, here's a question.

My Plex server (T20, 16gb ram and a couple of Tb of discs ) is running 16.04.7 LTS with ESM enabled.

If I were to actually type 'sudo do-release-upgrade' on the command line to go to 18.04.6 LTS, what is going to break?

I just put my phone down in order to go look for my phone!

Today is the other day in the year where I hate every device I own that has a clock display but isn't connected to the internet.

Really loving Brexit Britain!

Supermarkets using cardboard cutouts to hide gaps left by supply issues

Public mockery as problems with deliveries and a move to fewer product lines result in empty shelves

So petrol (gas) at my local station went up 2p a litre between me going to work this morning and going home this evening!

I wonder what it'll be tomorrow.

Remember when every TV pundit suddenly realized nurses, bus drivers, postmen, delivery people and janitors were "essential workers"?

Now, the same imbeciles are noticing that cooks, servers, truck drivers and others are also "essential workers". And that life without restaurants or opened shops really suck.

Soon, the very same idiots may well realize that moving entire industries to China and having just-in-time supply chains because $PROFITS is not such a good idea.

What follows is a small part of a much longer thread on Twitter
👇
Rachel:

"On British television, they are actually debating whether they should rescue migrants who are drowning.

Think about that for a second."

I have posted a few screenshots but I am not sharing any of the utterly reprehensible opinions.

I understand fully why people feel the way they do on both sides, but any human being, could one day, find themselves and their loved ones seeking refuge and safety in another land.
