@ultrazool I *wish* it was Austin. Houston’s suburbs were less fun.
@mrstth Ooh, fun! I SAID, FUN!! CAN YOU HEAR ME? STOP FOR A MOMENT… oh never mind.
@johndodds I’m (stupidly) the kind of person who spends a day swearing at the internet rather than making one phone call.
@johndodds Ooh, both good, thanks! I think I’m going to be doing some data munging whatever source I use.

@danjwilson Good work! Looks like that might be it. The deflator data leads to a bit of OECD I hadn’t come across. Ta!
@johndodds I have, thanks - almost but not quite, from what I can tell.
@johndodds Ta, yes I was hoping for more countries, and also not to have to find all the datasets individually. Plus a unicorn.
@Andrew_S_Hatton It was in there somewhere :)
