Just discovered NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert ♥️

Good morning, world! I hope things will be better for you today than they were yesterday.

Just back from my morning walk to the shops. The card machines are now wrapped in cling film.

Oh my, writing takes so much time, doesn't it.

Optimising a system will always necessitate de-optimising one or more of its sub-systems. Optimising a sub-system will result in de-optimising the system as a whole.

Timeshift and variable playback speed, but for zoom meetings.
