Funny story: the WEP town councillor was previously a member of Labour.
She was shocked - shocked! - to be expelled from the Labour Party for, er, standing for election for another party. She actually turned up to a Labour Party meeting after being elected for the WEP and was surprised to be asked to leave.
No-deal Brexit, or TERFs? Hard choice.
Why does this party, which is infested with TERFs and has one single solitary elected representative (on the mighty Congleton Town Council) get so many column inches in the Guardi- oh.
I've disabled IPv6 on my router and that's worked around the problem. What would actually solve the problem is the ISP not issuing broken IPv6 addresses to end users before they've implemented it, but that's too much to ask.
I suspect it's to do with the 5G rollout that they're doing round here shortly. I'd be very surprised if 5G wasn't IPv6-native, being a brand new technology and all.
It looks like my ISP, Three, are doing something with IPv6. I have an external IPv6 address, but it doesn't connect to any actual IPv6 servers.
That's why I've been having so much trouble lately - my OS thinks "great! IPv6!" and tries to connect over it, and then has to wait for the connection to time out before falling back to working IPv4.
Gross, don't even open
Walking back from getting my hair done earlier, my usual route takes me past the play park.
No kids in the play park, which is weird for a sunny day in the school holidays, but there was a middle-aged man sniffing the swing seats.
Can't we throw these people in the sea or something?
I see ex-Stoke City bruiser Robert Huth has taken to the BBC Radio 5 Live airwaves to moan about the abuse that players get on Twitter.
This is, of course, the same Robert Huth who was fined and banned for two matches by the FA for posting large amounts of, er, transphobic abuse on Twitter.
Computer help needed, Debian
I'm having issues with IPv6 on Debian.
The OS thinks I have IPv6 support, but my ISP doesn't support it. When certain apps (wget, Thunderbird etc) go to resolve an address, they get the IPv6 address first and obviously can't connect.
I can get around it with wget by using wget -4, but Thunderbird takes literally five minutes to send an email because it's spending ages looking for the IPv6 address that it can't reach.
How can I tell the OS never to look for IPv6?
Found a free way of listening to legendary radio station KPIG (Freedom, California) which charges for streaming access. Rock and roll, country, Americana and blues with real life presenters.
Not saying here how to do it, because it's a bit of a hack and it's limited in the number of people who can do it, but if you're really desperate to know then just ask.
Fun article in today's Times about the number of pirate radio stations operating in Dublin. I was there recently and can confirm, there are an awful lot of pirate radio stations.
The Irish authorities aren't nearly as interested as the UK authorities in closing them down - Ireland has a long tradition of "unofficial" radio.
The article is paywalled, so here it is on a PasteBin page.
Early 30s (she says hopefully). Trans. Urban Planning student. I've usually got the radio on. Sometimes I even like what I hear.
