(Actually, to be more accurate, the alarm went off but the volume was set to zero.)

First world problem?: my alarm failed to go off this morning after the alarm app was updated last night.

Rising this day with a full design to mind nothing else but to make up my accounts for the year past, I did take money, and walk forth to several places in the towne as far as the New Exchange, to pay all my debts, it being still a very great frost and good walking.

In case you needed to hate Jeff Bezos even more this morning: did you know that there's a .amazon TLD, and the nations of Brazil and Peru rightfully tried to sue Amazon.com for claiming it, but Amazon.com won the suit. This is so many layers of disgusting I can't even begin to catalog them.

People who make a voting plan in advance (what time they’ll go, which route they’ll take etc.) are significantly more likely to vote on the day. So make a plan! t.co/YOzLavjaN5

Ukpol, election 

There's a whole lot of people without polling cards this time and a lot of confusion about it. Make sure people know its not necessary if you're registered.
If anyone tries to stop you voting because of no polling card, report it. It's misconduct.

REMEMBER if you registered to vote but you don't have a polling card, *YOU CAN STILL VOTE.*
Go along to your polling station and give them your name and address, they will find you on the roll.

I forget mine a lot, I've never had a problem doing it this way.

Also you absolutely do not need a pen, but it does not void your ballot if you opt to use one. Just make your voting intention clear. #UKGeneralElection #election #ukpol

ssh is probably the most underrated tool I use every day. The capability for me to sit basically anywhere on the planet with an internet connection and remotely get stuff done over a secure connection is a boon. I don't think any other tool comes close to the usefulness of ssh.

I have a conundrum. Suppose I'm introducing my doctor friend to someone. I would say, "this is Dee, he is a doctor" or "this is Dee, she is a doctor". So if I was using the singular they, would I say, "this is Dee, they is a doctor"? Replacing "is" with "are" would sound more natural but would that deny the singular nature of the "they"?
