I went to EuroDisney just after it opened. As a non-linguist, one of my lasting memories is the fantastic queue handlers at the restaurants who spoke multiple languages. One girl wore the flags of 10 countries, it seemed like such a waste of skills

It’s not pretty, but it’s much less pointy and is properly approved. I decided to override what little style sense I have and bought a couple of them

They've just announced a new version. I have their original (pictured) plus the 2.4A version (same height and thickness but longer), they work really well. The other one isn't pretty but works. They do a cable with a Fig8 plug that I use with Mac chargers that will make Jonny cry

There have been solutions to this problem for years. Well before Apple's Watch charger

If I remember my first aid training correctly, that’s a green stick fracture

If the park has Jurassic in the name I'd be wary

IS there a list of titles you're looking for? I have a box in the loft I haven't rummaged through for a while

I used the two fixes from Slack. Cancel pre-order allowing the first device to download. On the other device, look in purchases and download from there

I went to Bletchley Park fairly soon after it first opened to visitors and the guide told the story of Turing working a very long day to complete something, finishing after midnight, and then running to London down the Grand Union Canal to give his report to the Admiralty

While listening to this week's episode I was pulled up short on hearing you tell me the potential cost of my better shaving experience in pounds. I know that injecting targeted ads has been a thing for a while, but this is the first time I've knowingly experienced it

I went to see Ted Nugent in London in the late 1970’s. He came on stage, played a huge chord, and 2000 seasoned rockers simultaneously shouted ‘Fuuuucck’ and put their hands over their ears. I think he was definitely trying to outdo Spinal Tap

I’m in the UK and my wife once said to a couple of friends “Most Catholic churches are really ugly”. There was a slight pause and a Catholic friend said “You do know we used to own all the pretty ones don’t you?”

It probably came up in the research, but the hangers at Cardington that were used for the R101 are still there. Fairly hard to miss if you're in the area. They're used as massive film studios (Batman Begins, Rogue 1 etc)

So is the screen doing the 'listening'? i.e. The crayon is pressed on the screen and signals that it's active. Screen detects the crayon and knows where on screen it's located? I suppose the pencil works the same way, but it still feels like the crayon must avoid crosstalk

If there's no pairing I wonder how the Crayon knows which iPad it's on (and vice versa) Could you get crosstalk between devices that are close together?

I think it would depend on whether the ICO felt that there was enough evidence to justify an investigation. I assume that FB are doing theirs on the basis of the contract between the two companies, or because CA think it’s better to cooperate

😀They did manage to kill me, but given my skill level that doesn’t count as awesome
