Very pleased with my new knife sharpener. Downside: my thumb is now quite a few millimetres shorter :-(
DJ Tiesto isn't dead. Good. That means I don't have to keep playing his execrable version of Barber's Adagio for Strings
Why isn't there a for location? Why doesn't do it? Where did FireEagle go?
If judicial review overturns DEAct might that establish internet access as a de facto utility? cf
@richardm56 Are you happy to be associated with this sort of journalism?

My code is held in git, svn, bzr and hg repositories. That should cover it.
