    Every time I think about buying this I forget the name and have to hunt around next time I think of it.

    Scott Mills is terrible in several ways. “This girl is…” he starts, describing Iceland’s 40-year-old Svala.

    @anneshewring Did you hear earlier about the performer who can move one of her toes telepathically? This is full of wonders!

    @anneshewring It’s the least I expect!

    @jaggeree I think “surprise” is optimistic, but I guess so. I hope that the semis might include odd things that won’t make it, but fewer each year.

    Watching the Eurovision semi-finals. It’s very boring.

    @russss @tominsam Weird. It’s never worked for me. 10.12.4 on two different MacBook Pros (Early 2015 I think), either Thunderbolt port.

    @tominsam If I have windows on my laptop screen, if I unplug and replug an external display, they end up on the external display. Grrr.

    @iamdanw I imagine a jolly bus, lurching through traffic, you all singing “99 Bottles of Beer”.

    @schinckel (The apps that were on the laptop screen, I mean.)

    @schinckel If I have a window open on the laptop screen, then unplug the external display, then plug it back in, no apps remember their positions.

    (I’ve tried the apps Stay and Display Maid but you have to actively save window positions in order to restore them again.)

    Why can’t macOS remember window positions when un/plugging displays? This must have annoyed people who’ve worked on macOS over the years.
