My gay friends, whether you're out or not, whether you know me or not: this does not end the hate, I know. But allow it to show you that there is also a lot of love: love for equality, if nothing else; love for tolerance, if not acceptance; love for humanity and personhood, if perhaps not salvation.

Not all of us were asked to vote; most of us will never be. But those who were asked, today, in this small and traditional and traditionally catholic country, said loudly and clearly that they believe that, whatever their other convictions, a loving commitment between a gay couple is just as valid and important for society as that between any other.

Those who voted "yes" may have had reservations, they may have had doubts, they may have been unsure. But they voted, and they decided, and the decision was that the world is a better place if we treat a marriage as a marriage, no matter what the gender of the participants.

Today, I am amazingly and unapologetically happy to live in Ireland and be a part of this community that has loudly declared that being gay may be non-standard, but that does not preclude a loving, committed relationship, valuable to society as a whole, and worthy of constitutional recognition and protection.

Ireland today lit a beacon in the dark. It is a long, long way until we are all equally in the light and these questions of gender, race, orientation, age, colour and so on are amusingly quaint. Nevertheless, a beacon was lit, and perhaps it may show some people the way.

Not only is this itself terrifyingly hypnotic, it also reminded me of one of +Nina Paley​​'s earlier works, "This Land is Mine": https://youtu.be/-evIyrrjTTY

Both this and This Land Is Mine are part of her forthcoming movie, Seder Masochism. If it's a tenth as good as her last movie, it'll still be brilliant...

I guess many of today's participants are members of the school's PA. They certainly take good care of us arrivals.

Not that facts are likely to get in the way of anyone's great narrative, but those people should watch out for the primary-coloured helicopters, just saying.
 
Today we announced we're extending the restriction on non-web-store extensions to more Chrome channels.

http://blog.chromium.org/2015/05/continuing-to-protect-chrome-users-from.html

I've read a number of grouchy posts on e.g. Reddit claiming this is all about trying to control what extensions users use, in particular because the web store doesn't allow things like Youtube downloaders.

The sad truth is that malicious extensions mucking with Chrome are by far the biggest problem we deal with today.  A HUGE fraction of Chrome users are infected with such things (or worse), and it results in an enormous number of problems, many of which get reported to us as bugs and help center requests, many of which don't.  (It was amusing that on the same Reddit forum people were whining about this were multiple other top-level posts on the same page begging for help with Chrome-targeting malware.)

To some degree, fighting malware is an arms race, and we won't be able to perfectly win.  But our previous restrictions here were able, alone, to reduce the number of support requests we got for such issues by 75%.   That's enormous.  Think about the magnitude of the number that represents, when you consider that Chrome has hundreds of millions of users.

So no -- this has NOTHING to do with trying to prevent Youtube downloaders or whatever.  We've been forced to this by bad actors, and we're doing it because we think it's in the best interest of our users.  I'm sorry that there are some people inconvenienced by this.  But at least I want them to understand that our motives here are what we say they are; there's nothing ulterior going on.

In some ways, it's like last weekend's runamuck, just longer, with only one Really Big obstacle.

And no worm.

Small but good selection of food; very happy to cater to kids. Not the most organised of people, but always friendly and helpful.

A decent pint, but sports TVs all over the place. Otherwise a nice atmosphere.

Always fantastic coffee. Coming here often will spoil you for life - you'll never again be able to have the stuff most places sell.

Shameless liars. Never again. Bought a used car here about two years ago. Would not ever want to do business with them again. They claimed they'd done a full inspection/service - a lie, a recent service we got independently showed that the (automatic) gearbox hadn't ever had any service at all. The suspension, tie rods and wheel alignment were also in far worse shape than could have been explained by 15'000 km we'd driven ourselves. They claimed the timing belt had been replaced on schedule (80'000 km, we bought the car at about 92'000) - a lie, it hadn't, as the recent inspection showed. Had it torn, the engine would have been totalled, and no warranty would have applied. It's a Peugeot/Citroen dealership, we bought a Renault (that someone else had traded in, I suppose). That, however, is no excuse - if they don't want to, can't, or won't service other makes, they should not claim they do. I'm prepared to accept lies-by-omission from a used car salesman, but this was straightforward, in-your-face false statements. Not, of course, written down anywhere.
