RAdvent Calendar 2020 Is On

Yes, it’s happening again. The fun silliness never stops. During those long, empty lockdown days I amused myself with yet another iteration of the RAdvent Calendar. With three years under my belt, I felt this is an established “tradition”, so I had to come up with yet another fest of cheese and cheer. As in…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #46

Last week I was thinking that Christmas this year is going to be quite different from the usual. An opportunity to do something different, including starting the preparations for it early – and enjoying it longer. Christmas baking, decorating the house with wreaths and vases of pine and fir, and lighting candles every evening. And…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #44

Without further ado – the weekly round-up Lathalea is still recording the reactions to the Hobbit DOS.

Donations Follow-Up

Before I fritter away this day as well, I just wanted to actually get back to a couple of important things. RIP JustGiving Pages Following on from my suspicion the other day that all of Armitage’s JustGiving sites seemed to have been disabled, Servetus suggested I contact JustGiving directly and ask. I did, and I…
