      Mrs LM made a lovely chicken fajita pasta bake for tea (I'm northern, so f**k off, it's tea). She can stay a bit longer.

        Just tracked down an unbelievably stupid bug deep down in a third-party product - I have the source, so I've been able to pinpoint exactly what's wrong. But of course I can't fix it; I'll have to sling a bug report at them, and in the meantime I have to try to find some workaround

        And it's raining steadily again. Might do the shopping anyway, as I'll probably have a better chance of dealing with the above after taking a break from it. Maybe a solution will come to me as I queue in the rain outside Sainsbury's, or better still, walk straight in because nobody else wants to risk having to queue in the rain

          News story on the BBC about Marmite rationing production nd only making the small jars due to a shortage of yeast extract now the breweries are shutdown.

          I now want Marmite on toast, but have no bread left as I ate the last of it for lunch smothered in pate.

                And there we have it: go to Sainsbury's around twenty to nine on a rainy Thursday evening, and it's just like old times

                No queue, I just grabbed a trolley and breezed on in. Hardly anybody else in the place besides staff; probably an average of one punter per aisle, all of them shying away from one another. Decent stocks of all the things they can get stocks of in the first place - only one Big Chicken left, mind, but that's all I wanted anyway. No normal flour, but loads of bread flour; not that I needed flour, I just happened to cut down there to avoid some hapless stranger. And no queue for the self-checkouts, although the big ones for trolleys were shut so I had to do that annoying pile-building on the tiny shelf of the normal ones.

                Anyway, all sorted now and one less thing to worry about for another couple of weeks

                  What's wrong with an opt-in to this crud?

                  Wonderful tool PowerShell I wrote a script to parse a 5GL language so we could build data diagrams and help files. Amusingly I was told by the head of crappy code development it wasn't possible < 100 lines later and wow! As an old fart I did consider VB first but I have to get down with the cool kids.

                  The problem with an opt in is that no one would. I remember users saying "oh it was from IT I ignored it" - we sent an email once a quarter with the 'call to action' in the subject, it was normally log out by 18:30 or similar.
