TIL, perhaps unsurprisingly, I am developing a regional dialect in French! ๐Ÿ˜‚ The only word I know for what in English you would call a breeze block is quรฉron (or cairon) which is apparently proper local (Occitanie). Nobody else in France will know what you're on about!

This is the first time this year I'm drinking a coffee in the garden in the morning and it's actually warm. Spring is springing! ๐Ÿ˜Žโ˜•

Is anyone else horrified by the amount of plastic waste in the healthcare industry? I know it's not the time, but there must be a better way than throwing away an apron and dozens of gloves for each patient a nurse pops in on? And what happens to them? Are they incinerated?

While the impact here in the Gard remains relatively low the CHU de Nรฎmes is reportedly taking on patients from the Grand Est. Seems patients are being scattered all over Europe to relieve hospitals there. I've heard Germany, Switzerland, elsewhere in France and military hospitals.

Last bag of coffee beans! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I will have no choice but to turn to Amazon, everyone else is shut. ๐Ÿค”

So my wife has bought some eco-friendly organic clay-based toothpaste. Which I have no problem with. Except the bathroom sink now looks like someone's been carrying out an amateur pot making class in it. ๐Ÿ™„

Everyone's amazed by Germany. It isn't rocket science. They paid attention. They saw what was coming. They observed what worked in Asia. They started ramping up testing capacity in January! A month before Boris was even telling people to wash their hands.

Also, if your server usually handles your traffic, you do something different and it doesn't, you probably shouldn't start by blaming your server. It's the one thing that hasn't changed!

Oh my, another great case of a developer installing a module with no idea how it works and what the consequences are. This time it's some reading time module that continuously polls to see if the person is still on the page. Worked fine in dev, less so when 1,000+ people tried to watch a webinar embedded in a page with that module polling away. ๐Ÿ™„

Coronavirus, climate change 

"While COVID-19 is playing out more quickly than the effects of global warming, the principle is the same: if you wait until you can see the impact, it is too late to stop it."

Spike of hospitalisations in the Gard today, but still no sign of a major wave of serious cases. We watch and wait.

COVID-19 Congo 

Fuck me, DRC as a *country* has just 50 ventilators. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
