    Ha, just saw that one too. I put this under ~life as it deals with pets, although in a historical perspective.

    It's not clear from the article, but I guess the key part is explicit consent. Both consent and dissent can be expressed explicitly (yes/no) or implicitly, e.g. through body language. I suppose the current law sanctions explicit opposition (no means no), without requiring explicit consent.

    We'll have to wait for an article on the actual wording of the law to be able to discuss it.

    When I met my lady we were both in our early thirties, and had recently bought our first computers. Serious stuff, no gaming. We did end up trying a couple of shareware games that came in the companion CD of PC magazines. She settled on adventure games (Indiana Jones and all that) while I was more into RTS (Age of series).

    We eventually connected our computers to play together. It was hard, she hates competing. We did some NFS (Porsche 2000), but it wasn't working. And Age of Mythology was way too violent for her taste.

    My most memorable gaming moment was when I figured out we could play as a team against two AI opponents, she would build and grow the economy, which she enjoyed, and I would lay waste to the enemy, my military funded by her. We would even record those games and discuss them afterwards :)

    I do "devops" and am curious what other people do with things like config management. I've seen saltstack in your sources, but it could have been "install only", so I asked.

    Out of curiosity (and if it's disclosable info), are you running the salt minion periodically on the production server?

    In case you missed it, there is a BBC documentary (from 2014) on the Guédelon castle works. Secrets of the castle.

    Heh, couldn't find anything more clear. Guess the scale is kept firm as described, and made to vibrate against part of the upper lip. I suppose it's somewhat similar to how they play the tree leaf...

    As for the tags, feel free to modify them as you wish, I was never comfortable with the system.
