    @alicebartlett Does that mean the `Lng`s are effectively the Lib Dems and must form a coalition with either `Long`s or `Lon`s?

    [Updated] The four main plug or cable adapters: the wrong size; the wrong specification; the right kind; broken. [Thanks @suegyford]

    @suegyford Good point!

    Programming, typing, typing, typing… sometimes it feels like making a sculpture by putting together atoms one-by-one. L.a.b.o.r.i.o.u.s.

    @gilest A friend in the US says he’s used scribe4you.com for ages, and it works alright. About $1/min.

    @phl I haven’t seen it. Not sure how good. Written/acted/directed by Lena Dunham who’s done ‘Girls’, so has been mentioned lots recently.
