Minor UX problem on the underground: saw a European man who asked me "Does the number 3 go to Baker Street?" To which I said "all of them go to Baker Street". He had interpreted the numbers on the information screen to mean there were different tube lines (identified by numbers) running through the same platform, not just the order of the trains running and their destination. In the UK we don't give train routes numbers to identify them, but that is common practice around Europe.

This side project I'm doing it SOOOO TDD that by the time I finally wire everything together «it just work».
Also that has helped me majorly refactor some areas without losing faith that I'm breaking things 🙏
