Take that, anti-vaxxers →

Well, Linus Torvalds is never one to pull his punches! This time he's taken aim at the anti-vaxers in the Linux development community.

Please keep your insane and technically incorrect anti-vax comments to yourself.

You don't know what you are talking about, you don't know what mRNA is, and you're spreading idiotic lies. Maybe you do so unwittingly, because of bad education. Maybe you do so because you've talked to "experts" or watched youtube videos by charlatans that don't know what they are talking about.

But dammit, regardless of where you have gotten your mis-information from, any Linux kernel discussion list isn't going to have your idiotic drivel pass uncontested from me.

I'm sure someone, somewhere has collated his sprays in one convenient location. That's definately a website I'd read with cuppa and a half-dozen chocolate half-covers.

Incidently, my wife and I have had our first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, and are eagerly awaiting the second.

Bunch - macOS automation →

I can't believe I hadn't come across this utility until now!

Bunch is a macOS automation tool that takes a folder of plain text files containing lists of apps and commands to launch and provides an easy-to-use menu for triggering them.

Bunch is developed by Brett Terpstra, a well-known and prolific automation aficionado for the Mac. From what I can tell, Bunch abstracts AppleScript, shell scripts and apps by making them available as simple, plain text directives which are easy to write and run from the macOS toolbar.

I've downloaded the latest stable version to play around with, and if I think it's worthwhile, I'll post a review.

Bunch is a batch application launcher and utility for macOS.
