Re: Forum software update.

Small software update due this evening probably, this time carried out by the good folk at Envesko. It will involve a few minutes of downtime, though I doubt many members will actually notice.
Just for info.

"Intense Farming Better Than Organic."

Oh dear. The Bleevers will not accept. But best not to forget, these are only, like, scientists. Full of prejudice and religious nonsesnse, I expect. The study is a blow to the propaganda of the organic lobby, who base their methods on the appeal to nature fallacy, rather than the best scientific ev...

Suguru.

Anyone rather addicted to Sudoku puzzles, like me, might be interested in Suguru. They are a bit different and I'm finding slightly different strategies are required. I started with Book 1, which was quite simple, so I jumped to Book 10, and a couple of the puzzles had me stumped for quite a while u...

Re: Brexit consequences

The FT on "no-deal Brexit." More irrational scare-mongering, of course. Dominic Raab, Britain’s Brexit Secretary, this week published the latest in a series of notices spelling out what might happen in the event of “no deal” between Britain and the EU. By issuing such a huge tranche (28 were publish...

Replying to N. Farage on Twitter.

Re: Late night music.

My memory might be failing me, but several years ago I uploaded this Roberta Flack song to Youtube, and I believe I posted it as the very first item on this thread. Youtube deleted it for some reason, so I deleted the link. But it's back, for the moment at least. From Roberta Flack's "Quite Fire" al...

Re: "Bodyguard."

I've been saving them to binge-watch later - I hate waiting a week between episodes. Just watched episode 4 on iPlayer. Reminded me that with Jed Mercurio scripts, to expect the unexpected. And don't trust anyone or believe anything anyone says. But then, that sums up UK politics too, these days......

Re: Late night music.

Something of historical interest. Glenn Gould performing the first movement of Bach's Keyboard Concerto No.1 in D minor (BWV 1052), from 1960, and with an interesting introduction from Leonard Bernstein. Dated sound of course, and dated performance style, but Gould's crisp, clear performance techniq...

Something of a postcode lottery, I expect. Our local Rothamsted Research establishment has benefited from millions in grants.

"Bodyguard."

I've just managed to catch up on the third episode of this BBC drama, and there are three more to go. It seems to be a great success and is certainly gripping. The story-line moves on at a good pace and the acting is impressive, with a good script from Jed Mercurio, who also produced the excellent "...

Re: Brexit consequences

This could also be on the Boris Johnson thread. I get to the stage where I don't believe anything he says, and hardly anything that is said about him. He is simply disreputable. Boris Johnson has admitted he “deeply regrets” going down the Brexit route according to sources close to the former Foreig...
