That *I* have to spend my evening filling out a Mitigating circumstances form to address problems caused by institutional neglect of diligence and oversight is absolutely peak @UniofNewcastle

Kicking myself that I've (begrudgingly) been using Google Chrome for work things to separate out my work and personal lives but Chromium which is more friendly and open-source is right there.
