Went into town for lunch today. If you are going to have the firey buffalo wrap from McDonalds then you should probably prepare yourself for it. It wasn't inedible but I needed a McFlurry to calm the hotness down aftetwards. Maybe this is how marketing works?

I'm also suspecting that the downstairs hall temperature probe is faulty.

This heat is really really not fun. I've always been opposed to air conditioning at home because of the carbon emissions, but I'd really love to be in an 18°C home right now.

The Netherlands are also having problems with their signage due to the heatwave

BREAKING: In a huge victory, the European Parliament has voted 318-278 against #Article13 and #Article11—the disastrous #CensorshipMachine and #LinkTax copyright proposals.

That means we’re close to stopping these terrible proposals—and we’re gaining momentum.

(EN translation) "The case shows vividly how easily completely respectable citizens together with their families can become victims of severe fundamental rights interventions by a constructed chain of indicators. It is more than questionable to be bothered with totally exaggerated measures on the basis of such apparently untenable reasoning as a witness. The tightening of the Bavarian police laws in the last years seems to lead to the fact that those responsible no longer feel bound to the requirement of proportionality of interventions, "said Frank Rieger, spokesman for the Chaos Computer Club (CCC).

"While searching the premises [...] the police [...] decided to extend the search to premises also used by members of the CCC: the OpenLab in Augsburg. Here the officers were confronted with hackers in their natural habitat: substances to clean and etch circuit boards as well as hair bleach.
