    I've heard of it being made with Latte milk, an earl grey tea bag, and vanilla syrup which replaces some of the sugar and adds a little extra flavour.

    As an addition to that a "Cheeky Vimto" is a student club drink in the UK. It's made with a WKD and 2 shots of port.

    Legally dubious, but as far as I'm concerned entirely moral.

    I think that's exactly what the arguament boils down to sadly. We can both agree that it's a great thing to share information when libraries are closed or even normally but when it comes down to copyright they're not follow the law and as such will probably lose anything in court if lack public outcry means it gets that far.

    What language is that in? Optimisation of algorithms is no easy feat so definitely something to be proud of.

    I second predestination, it's a great film and even better if you go in without any knowledge more than the strapline.

    This list looks like a great list for lockdown evenings since I've got a little more time. I'd love to go back and watch all of alien and mad max.

    Does the episodic critera you mentioned there remove video essays on where you don't require the video to get the content even if the youtuber produces their essays all on similar topics?

    The E-Ink kindles are being made and upgraded. Their latest ones (and other brand offerings) are now 300dpi which is the same as paper, and they're white like paper which is really nice. I think you're also thinking of "Kindle Fire" which is a different brand (with not different enough marketing) and they are just android tablets with amazons version of android.

    I can see there's been deleted comments as replies to this but I really appreciate tildes trying to be a more inclusive space and that Deimos is willing to moderate towards that. Also if you've got a less cis-heteronormative environment then you're more likely to end up with a more diverse community which is great for getting varied view points in a discussion.

    I don't think I ever realised the scale of the transport issue until I heard about major cities (think it was a texan one with 1mil+ pop recieving 3 passenger trains a week. I live in a small UK town (10000pop but merges into a 20000pop town). Both where I live and the place it merges into have bus routes that aren't the best but are useable to other places as well as both having a station with trains every half hour in both directions.

    Do you get a proper 2 hour lunch break or is it like mine in my last job where we went to lunch and ate it but then starting the work again took about an hour before we were properly doing it?
