The slew of emails I've got from GitHub about this nokogiri vulnerability is reminding me of repositories I'd completely forgetten existed...

Incredible to watch 40-odd kite surfers doing their thing off Goring-by-sea. It looks like an enormous amount of fun...

Dreams can be weird, but one from last night was a cracker. @torgo was asleep at the foot of my bed, but his phone kept waking me up, then someone had left the TV on downstairs, then a neighbour came looking for his cats, all 15 of which were in my house for some reason, and then I think some aliens half-assedly invaded, and then I tried to sell dxw services to my local council (always be closing!). Utter nonsense. Stupid brain. Most of it was reasonably normal-dream-weird, but why @torgo?

BRB changing my middle name to “1202 alarm”

A souvenir from one of my favourite gigs. The warm up act was Fred (I think) calling a game of bingo...

Having a password field only appear after entering a username is a huge accessibility antipattern, isn't it? Why is everyone and their dog doing it now? It plays merry hell with my password autofill.
