In a stunning plot twist, the killer turned out to be a cop!

The case closed, Poirot turned to a more challenging mystery: which current news story I'm subtweeting.

This remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is awesome


Every time I watch this video I see something new. Clippy hangs himself from a directory tree. That's an omen, right there.…

Looking forward to weeks and weeks of the German news mispronouncing the word "Brisbane".

Normally I delete royal news, but "Prince Philip: Politicians around UK to pay tribute to dyke" made me undelete to double check.

So TIL that actually he was a duke. Good to know.

One year ago the BBC explained the UK Covid-19 strategy: "... no scientists have spoken out against the UK government's approach" - although you'll need wayback machine to find those words.

It's been a year since I treated the BBC as a source of news.


Coronavirus: Why is the UK not shutting schools like other countries?

The government's top scientists are ploughing a different furrow to that of many other countries.

One key idea here: social media sites should have a safety card and demonstration same as airlines. You can't expect individual companies to volunteer, but as a regulation the entire industry would benefit in the long term.

A web hostile to women and girls keeps them from earning, learning, leading & making their voices heard.

It's a direct threat to progress on gender equality.

On #InternationalWomensDay and every day, we must fight for equality, online and offline.

How online gender-based violence affects the safety of young women and girls

NFTs seem to present a genuine dilemma. It's so easy to simply be outraged by the revolting environmental vandalism of the idea. But should I allow that to obscure the outrage at the systematic eradication from art of anything joyful and honest?

The ironic thing about the Impfpflicht für Pflegekräfte is that if you were close enough to hear it being announced, you're already infected.

Mood: festive


Thirteen years ago to the day I did something terrible. I can't reveal the details here, but it was really bad. Bad enough that I was cursed for my sin. Cursed, to subscribe to the Microsoft Teams blog. Take care, my friends. Take extra care.


Holiday parties & background fun with Microsoft Teams

Now is the time to bring some holiday fun to your Microsoft Teams meetings. There are many new features in teams that are perfect for your holiday gathering.

You can't make an exception that forces 20-somethings to endure Christmas with their families and expect them not to treat that exception as extending to New Year's Eve with their friends as well.…


Covid-19: Christmas get-together plan backed by UK nations

Ministers outline plans for "some limited additional household bubbling for a small number of days".

This is the public health equivalent of explaining to James Bond exactly how he's going to die.

I still think something like this would be smart. A series of planned, short-term lockdowns that give people some certainty, to get us through to March when vaccines (hopefully) and warmer weather are on the way.…

Don't forget to tune in next week, when Fivey Fox will be forcing the universe through simulation #22177! What's going to happen?

That was simulation #22176 by the way


In the future, overtaking at night means navigating through the ads the other car's headlights are playing at its driver. What a time to be alive (briefly)!…

99 smartphones are transported in a handcart to generate virtual traffic jam in Google Maps. Through this activity, it is possible to turn a green street red which has an impact in the physical world by navigating cars on another route! #googlemapshacks
