1. I wonder if there’s a relationship between the frequency of cutlery use broken down by type and overall health

  2. When dealing with character encoding issues I repeatedly get this feeling that we need to throw away computing and programming and redesign it all in a way which prevents stupid, hard-to-debug problems from happening live in trees and eat pita bread all day

  3. Bagel dough didn’t rise much (think I killed the yeast with too hot water) so tried pittas instead. Verdict: success!

  4. Has a go at making a chicken mushroomey cheesey sauce thing (inspired by an amazing Italian place here). Surprisingly it wasn’t unsuccessful — needs a bit more cheese next time though.
