Scatterplot of turnout in Thursday's EU elections (across) and Remain vote share in 2016 (up) by @PJHeneghan@twitter.com. As you can see turnout tended to be higher in Remain areas. I've labelled Cambridge and South Cambs; unsurprisingly we are outliers.

I have come to the realisation that it might take a while for to issue a new release so it's time to build from tip of tree on my machines so I can enjoy roaming with terminals - and of course themes 🌈

Anecdotally my local ward was seeing brisker voting yesterday than for most local elections. However that data point is very dependent on when people walk their dogs. It will be interesting to see both the results and turnouts on Sunday.

@andygmckay@twitter.com This is a really interesting thread so I graphed it

Jeez the National Rail website takes some convincing to tell you the actual cheapest fares. Fortunately I knew they existed having checked on the excellent traintimes.org.uk website first. Tickets booked for a weekend in !

Every time I'm about to press the button on upgrading my ageing rig at home another processor vulnerability gets reported. As the mitigations get applied to my rig it's performance drops again. Video playback almost always causes the thermal limiting to kick in these days.

People who can't distinguish between etymology and entomology bug me in ways I cannot put into words.

It seems the language of the manuscript has finally been identified (tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10). It's not been fully translated so far but what has so far seems to match up pretty well. Fascinating.

The first two elections leaflets have arrived. The one has a 3 clause conditional before backing a . The leaflet is short and unambiguous about having another vote.

I think he means it's an embarrassment for Assange ...

Funny really, because if Assange thought there wasn't a strong case against him in Sweden, he'd surely welcome this as a way to avoid deportation to the US.

Who would have thought Salvador Dalí could still get even *more* surreal?

A museum has (with permission from the Dalí Foundation) put together a life-size interactive video exhibit using deepfake editing, actors, real footage and audio from interviews to get his expressions right. As part of the interaction, he takes selfies with visitors, which you can have texted to you.
