Got a HHKB. Never thought I'd be a rubber dome guy but the thock thock noise is incredibly pleasant.

I can't believe they chose Back To The Future over Blade Runner to watch on the massive screen at the cinema... Fools!

"Thomas Cook only took out insurance for the very largest personal injury claims. For agreed claims below this figure, up to a high aggregate amount, they decided to self-insure through a provision in their accounts. As Thomas Cook has entered into liquidation without ensuring any protection for pending claims, the vast majority of claimants who are not covered by the insurance - including customers who have suffered very serious injuries and loss of life -will be treated as unsecured creditors"

This constant blaming of the London fire service annoys me intensely. Just one example:

bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50237732

'Watch manager Michael Dowden - among the first at the scene - had received no training on how the materials used to refurbish Grenfell Tower would behave in a fire'.

The materials used to refurb Grenfell should never have been used in the first place. That should have been the first enquiry

How the feck could the fire service know how these materials would behave in a fire ?

Looks like they bit off a lot more than they could chew and it's been hell ever since. phoronix.com/scan.php?page=new
