The new stealthed destroyer makes its maiden voyage.  You'll never believe the captain's name.
General Dynamics Bath Iron Works delivered the first Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer to the Navy, Naval Sea Systems Command announced on Friday.

"Indeed, one of the advantages of tax havens is that they help hold governments to account. They make it possible for businesses to avoid the worst excesses of government largesse and crazy tax systems – including the 39 per cent US corporation tax rate. They have other functions too: it is simply wrong to say that they have no useful purpose. It is also wrong to argue that, if only corrupt governments had more tax revenue, their people would be better served."
Yesterday, 355 economists signed a letter co-ordinated by Oxfam arguing that tax havens have “no useful purpose”.

Log literacy -- a sadly neglected skill
People who come to this blog for the technical posts may have noticed that those rather dried up over the last couple of years. There was a highly boring reason for this -- having built a little guerilla build server with one of my colleagues, it suddenly ...

This is what a vote for Remain will bring you. The limits on vacuum cleaners didn't make the EU suck any less -- and now they're clearly running scared by delaying this.

Cycled round Grafham Water today.

Total excursion 66 miles, with the last quarter, from St Neots home, being into a steady headwind and mostly on energy-sapping road surfaces.

An interesting way of sorting development roles, in the context of whether programmers feel they have to become managers or not.

Not having wanted to get into the man-management/annual appraisal thing, unlike the people mentioned in this article, I pretty much arrogated a solver/finder hybrid role for myself through much of my career, and have been the happier for it.
