Diplomacy has failed for years and invasion is out of the question. I’m not sure there were many options other than trade sanctions

The UN-sanctioned oil embargo might have had something to do with it?

This doesn’t get said enough… I get stuck on problems all the time. I get confused, depressed, certain that I’m a bad programmer letting my team down. Everyone gets this way. Not just you.

Haha I end up saying something to this effect before I start every conversation about a piece of work. Unfortunately there is a minority of people who relish giving feedback as an opportunity to belittle someone. So there is still a need to be explicit with this directive

I’d be interested to see how long it would take Hugo to generate HTML for all our content. We’d have to account for constantly changing content on pages like live blogs too. Would take serious load off our content APIs. Would be a great challenge for a hack day!

Yeah, I guess it depends on your use case. The Guardian has tens of thousands of pages. Admittedly majority of people have less to worry about!
