Roger's 2022 in 50 Words 01 January 2023

A friend likes to sum up his year in a set number of words, and I copy this fine idea. "Think of it as a short and un-boastful summary of the year, which nobody is expected to understand all of."

Polyglot programming, javascript dice roller, GURPS Dungeon Bash, a relief to everyone, Airecon, finally COVID, too many podcasts, the only masked person anywhere, Summer Stabcon in the Masonic Hall, Tekelilicon in the library, Tabletop Scotland, political despair, Essen!, house falling apart, the Anything Machine, fediverse, Advent of Code in PostScript.

A Happy New Year to you all.

    Not the only masked person anywhere, but we few stand together!

    Being fair I suspect many of the readers of this blog are still masking. But when I go out, I don't see any others.

    I'm pretty much the only person wearing a mask these days where I go. I saw one women of asian descent in Sainsbury's also wearing one in December, but that's all.

    They're a bit better near me, usually a few shoppers in Morrisons wearing masks, and the occasional pedestrian. I'll take my mask off on the way back with the shopping, but only because the street is usually deserted.

    I note that the USA has managed to develop and spread an altogether nastier variant at the same time that over here the Winter Flu appears to be about to achieve the Conservative Party's aim of finally destroying the NHS.
