the Flashposts: spontaneous jots and tittles.

Post fast, think later.


Just fixed an embarrassing bug that could prevent members from changing their passwords.

If you ran into it, you’re probably uttering Damn yer eyes Frogman! under your breath at the moment. Or out loud, even. I can’t blame you.

Of old when folk lay sick and sorely tried
The doctors gave them physic, and they died.
But here’s a happier age, for now we know
Both how to make men sick and keep them so.Hillaire Belloc, Verses, “On Hygiene”, London 1910

I was just informed by my Hyperlocal Affairs correspondent (Hi Mom!), that to pass the gate into the small branch (two clerks, one office) of a big inter/national bank in the nearby small town, one now has to briefly remove their mask in order to pass the facial recognition system (before promptly putting it back on, of course).

Let me out. This is not the future I signed up for.
