Happy 25th birthday, Linux!

It that didn't blow your mind already, consider that Linux is now a fair bit older than Unix was when Linux was invented.

So, the Irish Naturalization and Immigration Service's web server is currently failing requests to download naturalization forms, it looks like it can't handle the load... #brexit

They posted to Twitter with the#brexit tag. It would be funny if it wasn't serious.

I'm sad today.

But to look on the bright side for a moment, perhaps we can now have a proper www.amazon.ie.

Interesting article, if a bit long.

When I was young, there was nothing so bad as being asked to work. Now I find it hard to conjure up that feeling, but I see it in my five-year-old daughter. “Can I please have some water, daddy?”“You can get it yourself, you’re a big girl.”“WHY DOES EVERYONE ALWAYS TREAT ME LIKE A MAID?”

Does anyone in the Dublin area have a tri-wing screwdriver I could borrow?   A driver won't do, the hole the screw is in is too narrow.   I'm engaged in a battle to the death with a Wii...

(Sorry for not making a post local to Dublin, I didn't set up a people-in-Dublin G+ circle).

I have a set already, thanks.  But the driver bits themselves are too wide to go into the hole.  

I solved the problem, badly, by buying a set of narrower security bits (Draper SKU 09550).   Although the screwdriver into which the bits were to fit was also too wide, the bits were narrow and long enough that I could turn them with pliers without using the screwdriver.  

Thus I now have a working Wii and a small collection of previously-unaccounted-for plastic coins.

Growing up on a farm, we sold the double yolkers for more. :)

Not sure I ever had a sunny side up twin for breakfast though... Just scrambled.

I've always believed seriously in the value of British comedy as a source of deep insights into our human societies.

"""What's the EU ever done for us?"""

Sometimes we need a little bit of humour.

I confess to some of the usage he's complaining about, but this is a great article. I'll miss him when he's gone.

Now here's a thing I had never expected to see.
This is the J.G.Harston reinterfacing of BBC BASIC (Z80) to run on the Sinclair Spectrum. I started work on this in the late 1980s, and in 2003 restarted work on it. BBC BASIC files. Install.htm, Installing BBC BASIC on the Spectrum. BBCBasic.rom, 16K, BBC BASIC language and system ROM.
