I do wonder a bit about this.

First off, kudos to them for turning the loss of $100,000 into a gain of (so far) $262,966 and counting. Wonderful both that someone had the courage to return the donation, and that the crowd-funding community stepped up to the mark. But that means after 2 days they've pretty nearly got back their usual annual budget. When the Indiegogo campaign has run its course they'll have what? Potentially 10 times their annual budget to play with? Maybe a bit less as publicity and donations tail off, but a lot more than they're used to having.

I just hope that they have considered how they'll use the extra money; they can't just spend it all at once or they'll have problems when they have to scale back again, so they'll need to do some solid long-term planning that both uses the windfall effectively and covers them for when things return to normal. Tricky little situation the've got themselves into.

Data use warning on closer inspection appears to be Microsoft Office eating data. The odd thing is I haven't opened it for months. It was only there because I hadn't got round to uninstalling so now it is gone and good riddance

+Henk Poley my OneDrive contains less than 2MB of documents. One is 7.6kB and updated most recently yesterday (its a Keepass .kdbx file so updates only when I add a new site password, also I should be on wifi when I save changes).  None of the others have updated since February.

My best guess is that because I haven't opened the app for months there was some authentication failing and triggering infinite retries. Alternatively I may have had some Sharepoint Online files from my previous employment being synchronised and someone added a load of new files. However that still leaves the question why it has to synchronise those files over a mobile connection. Given that I've uninstalled it there's probably no way to tell.

From the wikipedia page it seems stranger than you could possibly believe. About 125 of the things though the report is confusing and I think many must be in private hands.

As someone both ginger and Scottish, I find the ever reliable NewsThump has today spot on.
 
Ginger-haired people have been told not to even think about going near a window, let alone stepping out of the house today.

Sometimes I really wonder whether the Oxford Times realises that their RSS feed using the picture of the journalist as the image for each article really doesn't do them any favours.

Sadly they've also failed to have any presence on Google+ so I have no way to plus-mention them.

New? bug in the latest ingress apk. Holding a mod while you hit done leaves it permanently displayed. Have fun seeing what combinations you can produce like this turret-shield

At €33 for a 4 course set menu with aperitif, wine and coffee you can't go far wrong. Starter options include 6 oysters, mains included steak (nicely a point), and grilled salmon which could have been cooked a bit less but still tasted good with a pesto sauce. Then a couple of bits of cheese with a small salad and finally for dessert we both had isles flottant. Service was very fast, almost too fast when we finished the oysters and they cleared the finger bowls within seconds. Nice decor with lots of lights and lots of mirrors.
