as many of you know, I spent a week at the London XR rebellion, well I have finally written a short article on what I saw, what I feel about it and if XR is even worth it for us in the first place.

Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I’ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.

My hand for scale, don’t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.

A really strange-looking lady just came up to me and handed me this card. Bizarre.

I'm just saying that if we replaced handshakes with mutual headpats, utopia would be instantly achieved.

As part of the "Making Tax Digital" initiative HMRC has changed the way businesses used to submit their VAT returns. This now must be done only by digital means without any manual entry or copy-paste involved.

This has an unfortunate effect on anyone maintaining their books on spreadsheet (and / or not using the variety of commercial systems) in that they will be unable to submit their VAT returns until they use a bridging software or a commercial offering.

On principle, I don't think one should be forced to pay money to submit their tax returns and in practice, I don't want to evaluate a load of different services which may or may not be safe to use. It was actually easier and safer to write my own solution, building on the work done by another developer - more power to OpenSource :).

I had to do this in my free time but the solution is now HMRC approved and fully functional. It is open-source, available free of cost for anyone to use from my hosting or can be self-hosted.

The tool is available here --> https://standard-vat-return.herokuapp.com

Hope this will help some.

Please pay attention to the propaganda! Do not applaud people surviving in this dystopia! Instead burn down the dystopia!
