@clacke Doh! I just saw your Gitlab notes, and realised the answer was "yes!". Fixed - awaiting Ken's ministrations.
Listening to the "This Week in Microbiology" podcast. They are discussing how Porphyromonas gingivalis, a bacterium that causes gum disease (ginginvitis), is implicated in Alzheimer's disease. Scary if true, but it holds out some hope for prevention - and warns us to look after our dental hygiene!
@clacke I was looking at the FOSDEM schedule earlier. Sadly no Perl Devroom this year, though there's a Perl stand. I've found the people on there to be very welcoming in the past. There are two Perl talks: one about parsing languages with Perl6 and one about "Perl11" a compiler that is planned to handle Perl 5 - and Perl6 in due course. Sadly, I'm not attending this year, but I'd have gone to these two talks if I had 😉
Finally cooked Christmas dinner for the family. Son & girlfriend were visiting her parents on the day, but sadly they both got food poisoning later😞 Then I got the flu (real "kill me now, I'm coughing my lungs up" flu) and today was the first day of being semi-human again. Made a nut loaf, and other vegetarian stuff. Very good.
@einebienezwo Hi again!
@NYbill I'm amused that the summary for show 2591 (which I'm just listening to) is spoken as "Any Bill troubleshoots a DIY kit of Ken Fallen's". Our name pronunciation fixes only went so far ;-)
@mcnalu @NYbill Andrew, just added your comment to HPR2551. Ken and I are working on a solution to the problem of espeak mangling names and handles. I have added a new field to the database and have rewritten some names so espeak gets them right. When it's eventually released it'll be "AnyBill" no more (and not "Nibble" either, and we can say goodbye to "Thel Ove Bug" too) 😉
Been debugging my keyboard this evening, trying to find out why the F10 key wasn't working:

@mcnalu Hi there! Since quitter.se is so flaky at the moment I'm using Mastodon on SDF in the meantime.

Now using Mastodon on SDF after quitter.se died.
