@_sn0ww Hoping to find the oomph to call the careers advice thing I was pointed at when made redundant in October. No hope of any benefit from it, I just need to tick it off to prove to.myself it's pointless :)bibbleco @bibbleco • 24 Feb 16:05 GMT
@Adam_SH69 @BBCNews As someone - a stand-up, I think - pointed out 30 years ago, "everyone /knows/ the Sun is a comic".
On that basis the current shameful state of the Torygraph makes it a far bigger danger.
@NHSuk Italy has 400 police officer per 100,000 citizens. England and Wales: 200*. But no doubt there's a section in county/ MA contingency plans covering voluntary pandemic lockdowns enforced by threats of revoked parking permits or council tax rises.

"[..] (Home Secretary) Patel allegedly questioned why police could not use force against @XRebellionUK protesters."
That would be an *exceptionally* stupid move. Outstanding, even in the closely-fought "worst Home Office decision ever" stakes.
Some people are still surprised to find there are malign actors nominally on the same side of a debate. https://t.co/4D59t68B5lbibbleco @bibbleco • 23 Feb 10:54 GMT

@GossiTheDog Remembering 2005, trying to get through to head of security that "We don't need a pandemic section in our BCP - we're CNI, there are pallet loads of Tamiflu with our name on in a warehouse somewhere" was a misapprehension. (Failed, of course.)bibbleco @bibbleco • 23 Feb 10:12 GMT
People who should have known better, please note -- this was obvious by the end of January, on here at least.
@GossiTheDog Mine just jumps on the bed, stands on me and yells her head off. Same when she wants a stroll round the garden at 2am.
Note to self: ensure next house has a catflap, or at least space to fit one. UPVC kitchen doors suck!
What's needed is something like a "Cyber MoT": an annual inspection of fundamental sagety-critical aspects of an org's cyber security, with the ability to issue "fail" notices for mandatory fixes. There are quite a few orgs out there that should be SORN'd. https://t.co/9aMRkVQAb9bibbleco @bibbleco • 21 Feb 12:06 GMT
Song for the day.
I'll never forget walking out of the backstage* at the Brixton Academy and realising I'd missed the start from the way different ribs and internal organs buzzed and resonanated with this bass line.

Methane: a thread. Lost count of the number of times I've pointed earnest but under-informed commentators at the various CH4 explainers on RealClimate. In summary: it's not good, but it's not going to turn earth into Venus. CO2 is a far more urgent issue. https://t.co/lBNr6CVrUebibbleco @bibbleco • 20 Feb 22:35 GMT
@Alex072001 @Life_Disrupted @thombo91 @IanDunt It's best of a bad bunch territory. Really disheartening. Awful as Bloomberg is, he's less bad than Trump and might have best chance of winning. Getting the openly kleptocratic white supremacist Russian mob out of the WH is more important than finding the next Obama.bibbleco @bibbleco • 20 Feb 11:33 GMT
@IanDunt Warren looks least bad to me, based on very skimpy impressions. Sanders and Biden would both be disasters.bibbleco @bibbleco • 20 Feb 11:29 GMT
@JonathanGormle6 @DaveThroupEA @Gary_Bywater I think you'll find (1) it's considerably more complicated than that, and (2) the EA probably know more about it than you or I. Here are some hints. Enjoy:
