i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Still going strong, battered and bruised, with new scars every day. But always friendly, even to our dogs (senses they are no threat)

Dear old street cat, battered but unbowed, met after a long gap, thanks to local road work interfering with our usual rendezvous

Billoo resting at the foot of a tree. He's injured his hind leg, and this morning had to be taken for a dose of antibiotics and painkillers. Currently not relaxed at all, for is now in a cage to prevent him causing himself further injury.

That's my handsome fellow, the feral cat with the friendliest meow, now very battered, one eye twisted, and a frightening open wound on his neck (hidden by his ear in this picture). But eagerly comes to lick my hand, get petted, and to purr loudly, whenever he spots me.

"Oh, what a tangled web we weave, 
when first we practice to deceive!"
(Sir Walter Scott, 1808)

#OOXML is a lie.

If you want to use an Open Standard for your documents use #ODF

I was looking at forms that are required by our Communications Ministry (Ofcom) that must be filled in to apply for a licence for a radio broadcast station, and all the forms are now in ODF format (they don't even supply them in MSWord or PDF any more. Ofcom also use OSM nowadays for all their mapping of transmitter sites..)

Yes! It's not raining, so here I am, pet me.

Right away please, I haven't got all day.
