If you're fiddling about with AWS CloudFormation, stop and go use Terraform or Ansible. 😉 If, like me, your specific use case means you have to, this is really handy: lono.cloud/docs/configsets/deb

I have no solution for this, and I can propose no better system, but it occurs to me while watching Pandemic 2020 on BBC2 that the biggest flaw of democracy is it creates a system where too many politicians, whether we or they like it or not, act in the interest of getting elected next time above the real interest of the people in the territory they are elected to represent.

Watching Pandemic 2020 on BBC2 in the UK, astounding and painful to watch how we all stood around and watched COVID arrive without doing anything.

Well, I've been drawing architectural plans in the evening all week, after meeting with the surveyor (online, of course) and delivering the result I think it's a good moment to open a nice Sardinian wine! Salute, @ArgiolasWinery! 🍷

That's it! A whole years-worth of clean data comparing our energy cost and use from gas boiler to high-temperature air source heat pump. I need to write up my findings!

Well. Lockdown lite for us here in . Non-essential shops shut, stay within a 10km radius, no parties please. Oh, and kids at home for a week (2 weeks for the older one). Not too bad, could be worse.
