  1. Constantinople. I knew it was named after Emperor Constantine, that threw me well over 100 years out with the first guess.
  2. #Yeardle #361 https://histordle.com/yeardle/ I call shananigans on today's Yeardle. How can a city be called something before the birth of the person it is named after?
  3. Cracking finish to Milano San Remo, with a mega-group of Pogacar, Ganna, Van Aert and Van Der Poel going clear on the Poggio. Van Der Poel then smashed them all from near to top and the whole descent.
  4. I told one of my subordinates at work that he had spelled a word incorrectly, but I found out later he was right and I was wrong. I didn't apologise at the time, and now I don't have his contact details.
  5. #Yeardle #356 https://histordle.com/yeardle/ Last ditch save, but stuffed my first guess average, out by 630 years.
  6. #Yeardle #349.04166666667 https://histordle.com/yeardle/ Yep, an easy one.
  7. I've figured it out. There is a Bitdefender extension called Anti-tracker. I have disabled it for P+B, and for another couple of sites I use frequently. Cheers for the help.
  8. I normally use Chrome and have just tried Edge. I didn't get the issue, but I got a message asking if I want to add an extension of my anti-virus software. When I added it, I got the same issue I was getting in Chrome. I've fairly recently changed my anti-virus to Bitdefender - are there any known issues with it? thanks
  9. For a few weeks I have been unable to view embedded tweets and You Tube videos, see example posts below. What is causing this and how can I fix it? Thanks.
  10. #Yeardle #345.04166666667 https://histordle.com/yeardle/ Damn, should have got that one. Beats 2 consecutive fails though.
  11. Genuine question: why do you say that? You obviously did want a relationship, otherwise you wouldn't have used those apps, so what changed your mind?
  12. There's a key distinction to be made here. Based on that quote, it's the character's racist view, not the author's (or strictly speaking, the 'narrator' of the book). Amending the language of characters in a book to appease a (to use a lazy phrase) 'woke' agenda is completely ludicrous and counterproductive. The language characters use informs us about them and their motivations. And how could authors, through their books, expose and challenge abhorrent views unless they are expressed in the first place? Changing the language of the Dahl books is different and more worthy of debate.
  13. The publisher has changed their mind: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-64759118 Remarkably, the article doesn't make it clear whether they will sell the original version instead of or as well as the updated versions.
  14. Both sound just the issue I had a couple of years ago where I'd wake up around 4-5am needing a piss, then I couldn't get back to sleep. I tried cutting out drinking anything after tea time, but it didn't work. Then I started drinking later (usually a cup of decaf tea about 9pm), which means I have to get up earlier in the night, around 2-3am. That means I'm still really tired and usually get back to sleep pretty quickly. Worth a try.
