I hope your day is filled with powerful Labour MP thinks a fetish is a "worry" and boldly declares he has thousands of them, the biggest of which is probably "the horses" energy today.

When my Dad was younger there was access to free university education, the local technical college (since closed) ran free evening classes for adults on home appliance repair and there was an adult education centre in town that taught, mostly for free but sometimes a small fee for materials, various things such as book binding, clock repair, history and English. All of that is gone now. Knowledge is now considered something those with privilege can afford not a right for everyone to access.

the new thinkpads have moved away from the ultra-slim trend in favor of a thicker, cuter aesthetic.

I've been a little quiet on here recently, so here's a little update: I have inadvertantly become "a streamer". I'm still not quite comfortable with that term but we'll see if it grows on me. Work is also kinda horrible at the minute so that's a thing as well. Anyway, if you want to watch me sing on stream, I'm iMartynOnTwitch on twitch.

"Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. ... When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." - CS Lewis

@iMartyn It's the dishonesty about goals that grinds at me. The rhetoric is “we want to hire the best people”. But today's recruitment process is deliberately designed to exclude those people from being hired.

If the goal is to recruit the best people: they are busy and already stably employed, with no time or desperation for this stupid make-work test. Instead, the process as designed fits people who have no job now and are willing to submit to unpaid hours of tests from dozens of recruiters.

This is crazy and expected to be done with the energy I have left over from doing a full day's work BEFORE I get an in person interview.
