OK, so my connection was a bit ropey as has been all too usual during 
'lockdown'. All soon to be remedied next week! ;-)

Indeed, a bit of a test during the Jitsi showed a drastically positive 
difference :-)

And without further ado, we have here some of the links we mentioned:

Here's a blatant advertising piece but still good for showing what a 
well designed data centre should be:

Tour the Allen Data Center

That example looks much better than some of the data centres I've been 
around where you might be left wondering what margin they may or may not 
have left for capacity. And whether those backup generators are 
regularly tested? And whether the is fuel checked??... Everything 

For a beautiful animation of how full-flow rocketry works, see:

SpaceX Starship - How will Starship tank autogenous pressurization 
systems work?

And John showed off some beautiful North Sea sunrises. Can we persuade 
him to set up a sunrise webcam? :-P

Somehow, I didn't get to mention my bits and bytes. That's something for 
another evening ;-)

Have fun!
