Trying to think of ways to invalidate a patent that looks perfectly valid to me, tbqfh.

This is my life.

Really want a nap, R doesn’t agree with that plan and is asking for dinner already instead.


it’s cup of tea time but i’ve not long had a coffee

Anyway, back to banal. Might have a fourth cup of tea.


many many experiences.

None I’d feel comfortable saying in a job interview/application :laughing:
