(Though to be fair, the person who said this was very happy that I'd provided them with a lump of steel to make their pans work with their induction cooker so they could make dinner.)

"Thank you good sir!", while polite, is not something I'm terribly happy to hear directed at me.

Otherwise known as "Rock, meet the Hard Place. You go over there, and I'll stand between you."

Oh okay, turns out I just needed "xinput set-button-map", not a full Xorg.conf. That's a relief.

It's the year 2019 and I'm having to write an Xorg.conf to make a laptop's touchpad behave correctly...

As far as I can tell, either the registration page doesn't like my email address because I tried to set it to ehiccard@<domain> (I have a wildcard recipient set up for the domain) and their system doesn't like the user part, or they don't like the fact that the domain part didn't have a """normal"""-looking extension like .com or .uk (and is instead a considerably younger gTLD).

I'm travelling outside of the UK in the next couple of months, so I've been advised to get an EHIC card, so if I break a leg it doesn't cost me the other one to pay for getting the first fixed.

So I go to the online portal, and attempt to create an account on the registration page...

As a corollary to this, a few nights ago a friend put my hair into pleats, and I had to put quite a bit of effort into not falling asleep. Very calming.
