"I do not use your crappy confusing dog’s arse of an application not because I do not care about my privacy or because I lack the necessary technical knowledge but because my name is Amanda and I’m a brain surgeon who works over 60 hours a week and has three kids at home. I simply do not have enough hours in the day to devote to deciphering the mess you just dumped on my lap to save yourself the effort of thinking about anyone else but yourself while developing it."

Thanks @aral

"Why aren't these underfunded institutions doing something expensive and complicated with an amorphous outcome and zero incentive?"

Has anyone put together a 'Most Anticipated' list for books coming out on small presses in 2019?

haha oops I forgot to change 'Invasion Day' before I shared my year planner with the rest of the organisation.

Not as heroic as when @Edwardshaddow did the same thing in his public library LMS calendar with website integration.

So far today I have found 7 conflicting but equally unhelpful suggestions for fixing my civiCRM problem, and accidentally archived my podcast to-be-listened list. It’s not even 9am yet 🙁

Talking of mace, here's a story. Briefly at Sydney airport they mounted those motion-detecting deoderisers in the gents that spray scent when they detect movement. At eye height. On the urinal wall. I noted this and started weeing a few feet away from it (one long wall, not individual urinals) and was halfway through when someone else came in.
