  • In a rare win for sanity and freedom Britain is abandoning legislation that would have banned "legal but harmful" speech online.  (Reuters)

    The proposed law was so twisted that it included criminal charges for executives of social platforms for the entirely legal speech of other people.

    This unsurprisingly provoked some pushback from said social platforms.

    The government - the nominally conservative government - is planning to return with more of the same but with a tasty won't somebody think of the children sauce on top.


  • I think everything I want from Ikea is in stock right now.  I could just set fire to my credit card and order a houseful of furniture in one go.

    Probably best not to.  Would save on delivery fees but leave my living room filled with flat packs when I've only just got it free of boxes.

    Going to end up with 90 feet of desk space.

1 One huge problem with the supposed "better for the environment” of inkjet printers is that inkjets have to be used regularly or their nozzles get clogged.  This might be fine in offices; however, home use is often sporadic, so buying a single laser printer that lasts you years is better than having to buy multiple inkjets that keep breaking because they're not used often enough.

3 I really can't see it:  the cost per page for a laser printer is something like half that of even a really good inkjet, or at least it was 20 years ago, and I doubt lasers have deteriorated or inkjets have somehow improved.

4 What was the last Epson laser printer you bought? I'm drawing a blank here.

5 I think I got a Kyocera, not an Epson.  I gave it away before the move anyway.
