    I see “it’ll all be over by Christmas” is now “it should be getting better after Easter”

    Tado challenges continue. Waiting on a support response.

    HWMBO made dinner for today and tomorrow as the Caribbean goat curry needs to fester in the fridge overnight.

    Tonight's viewing was Linotype: The Film (2012), about the eponymous typesetting machine and the people who still keep them going. Big nostalgia kick for me, as we had one at the school press in the late 1970s, when they started vanishing from the printing industry as phototypesetting took over, and to this day it's the most incredible and unlikely machine I have ever encountered. Seriously, it's like a Heath Robinson contraption raised to the Nth power; yet for nearly a hundred years it was used to set every page of every newspaper in the world, and a good percentage of the books too. A wonderful beast, if you don't mind being close to a machine that has so many moving parts it could remove multiple pieces of your body simultaneously just in the normal process of operating it, and is prone to squirting a powerful jet of molten type metal at your groin if something goes wrong; as one of the chaps in the film said, "This was pre-idiot-proof"

    Goodnight all

    Morning all if all there be

    Dry.

    What appears to be blue sky with fluffy white clouds, though I fell for that one yesterday.

    Warmer at 15.6 deg in here.

    1014 mBar and 65% RH.

    Morning all

    Dry out. Overcast with some wan sunshine. Currently 11 degrees and may reach 12. Unlikely to rain. Barometer down to 1020 mBar.

    First coffee has been drunk.

    I forgot to report the trundling of bins last night. These had been collected (and dumped on the pile in the street) before I got up.

    Morning all
    Pleasant walk earlier (a bit short, not even 5km). Light cloud with blue skies. Could be a nice day, although I suspect I'll be lighting the stove in the office again. Nothing to do with the cold, everything to do with burning the evidence.
