finally, a good thing on the bird site: this bot takes tweets written in BBC BASIC and renders them as they'd run on the Acorn original:
aaagh, bloody Urbane Cyclist need to take another **two weeks** on my bike cos they don't have the right Shimano shifter cable in stock. This is on top of the two weeks that they didn't contact me because my email address was getting caught in their spam filters.
When I get my bike back I'm gonna hafta count the wheels, that's how much I trust UC now

The cyclic relationships between what you see and how you feel and react means that any machine learning effort aimed at improving business outcomes for an advertising company will unavoidably optimize itself towards creating an audience that’s impulsive, angry, frightened and tired.

I AM REUNITED WITH MY FAVOURITE MOUSE!!!!!!!!!!1!!!
Years ago, I used to use an IBM USB Scrollpoint mouse. Rather than having a middle scroll wheel, it had an IBM-style Scrollpoint nubbin that allowed scrolling in both X and Y directions.A few years ago driver support was withdrawn.
