Our Shetland correspondent is on her travels and, it seems, has been unable to post links to her latest adventures, so I'm posting them here.


Frances is taking her daughter Flossie to Bristol University where her daughter is doing a Masters degree in Chinese translation for a year. They chose to go for the 13.5-hour ferry to the Scottish mainland, followed by a two-day drive through Scotland and England. Most roads in Shetland are single-track with passing places...

How about the feeling one gets when a through testing of a function in a program proves it works correctly? :yahoo: Or when you discover that the "success" is simply due to not enough testing criteria. :wallbash:

Unfortunately, truth is often the last thing people learn, many of us even refuse to see it. There is an excellent series currently running on PBS that helps explain how our biases affect us in so many unconscious ways and actions. Most "social networks" have been using this science from their beginnings. "Monetization" is a compassionless god.
