Started to play 'The Longing', a game that ends 400 days (real time, not game time!) after you begin playing it.

"Children were presumably glad to be off school – until, that is, an app called DingTalk was introduced. Students are meant to sign in and join their class for online lessons; teachers use the app to set homework. Somehow the little brats worked out that if enough users gave the app a one-star review it would get booted off the App Store. Tens of thousands of reviews flooded in, and DingTalk’s rating plummeted overnight from 4.9 to 1.4."

From a great piece in the LRB.

Special delivery package routed to Edinburgh by mistake...

Got an MP3 player because I am old.

Doesn't use USB on the mp3-player end which sucks.

Doesn't recognise progressive jpegs for art, which is annoying.

Otherwise, I really like having an mp3 player.
