Never use a spellchecker. I do use a dictionary (dictd).

Six Stages of Debugging

Step 1 : That can’t happen.

Step 2 : That doesn’t happen on my machine.

Step 3 : That shouldn’t happen.

Step 4 : Why does that happen?

Step 5 : Oh, I see.

Step 6 : how did that ever work?

Never tried any kind of kniitting. My OH is a dab hand at kitting and crocheting (is that a word?). Division of labour means I've never been motivated to try. Should give it a go, just to see.

No. 😃 Not one of my skills.
The dog is a Scottish Terrier, but not Neachdainn.

Nothing says Easter more than a Scottish Terrier wearing floppy bunny ears.

Ah, that's why. I thought it was strange that you made the exact same typo several times.

I've seen way more embarrassing autocorrect fails. 😃

Ah, on Wikipedia, of course. Good find nonetheless.

I was wondering if it was something as simple as snow + don, and it appears it is.

Snowdon is Yr Wyddfa
Snowdonia is Eryri

Which begs the question: where on earth did the names Snowdon and Snowdonia come from?

Today was definitely a "taps aff" weather day, as shown in the forecast (except for viewers in Grampian).


"pay us or disable your ad blocking"
Honestly, never saw that. I can read the text without enabling any JS. If I want to see images some JS from origin and cdn has to be enabled, still don't see ads etc.

I don't think Samsung see this as a massmarket product, more an aspirational device and to make their £600 'phones seem cheap.

I'd be interested in a larger format device although I wouldn't want to hold a chopping board to my ear. Integration with a headset might be answer.

The Samsung does look cool. Although I would find the permanent crease down the middle of the screen a little off-putting.

Who should they speak to about reducing the cost down from £1,800?


Somebody switched the "f" and "g" keys on your keyboard? 😉

Thought it might. Nymphaea alba are quite common here, particularly as a lily added to ornamental ponds.

Interesting story about potentially using the moth to control Hydrilla verticillata. Using one invasive species to control another. What could possibly go wrong. 😃

Opus isn't always available as a download option from YT.

MP3 has near universal device support, Vorbis much less and Opus much less again (for my locally available set of devices).

While walking along the river at Springleaf Nature Park, Singapore, I saw a spot of bright red in the water. Getting closer, I saw it was this Red Water Lily (Nymphaea rubra) in full bloom. Spotted on 19 April, 2019.

On iNaturalist [ inaturalist.org/observations/2 ].

... and there is a butterfly resting on one of the petals.

Does it keep opening and display more petals, as time passes?
