RT BigBrotherWatch: It's ID card season...🤦
Voter ID doesn't stop fraud - it stops the poorest voting.
In 2017 there was 1 vote fraud conviction - in the ENTIRE country.
In 2019, a voter ID trial saw 2000+ people refused a ballot paper for forgetting ID.
Probably old news to some but this is shit. I won't be buying a OnePlus as a future replacement now.
So here I am, sitting in my Vauxhall Astra mark 3 outside the office and waiting. I'm wearing a skull bandana headscarf for face covering purposes and a Talking Heads t shirt whilst listening to Megadeth's Rust In Peace. #NewNormal
Is today a special #Windows will-play-up-more-than-normal Day?
Boot up Windows PC to connect to work's VPN - just hangs on a picture of meerkats. Eventually manage to reboot and connect to my PC - VPN freezes. Then my work PC at the other end of the VPN decides to hang.

So, over the weekend I explained to my technically inexperienced wife how basic Notepad and Wordpad in Windows are. I explained the extra functionality of other text editors such as my personal text editor of choice #vim, along with #emacs and others - even #leafpad.
It blew her mind!
She now wants me to show her how vim compares two files for differences and appends the contents of one text file to another!
My #daughter has a prospective new boyfriend. As per her request, I have aided her background check by reporting back on his LinkedIn and Twitter profiles.
He must be a loser - no Mastodon presence.
The worst nightmare of my bosses happened this afternoon - I'm working at home and, for a while, my #broadband dropped
Married, with a beautiful daughter whose career is currently better than mine!
