Open source is wonderful, but for maintainers it's difficult, time consuming, and full of people who think you owe them something. This makes it *very* easy to burn out, and very easy to make mistakes.

Cool, one of my payment options was expired so @GoDaddy@twitter.com let a bunch of my long-standing domains expire — even though I have other payment options on the account — and now they're charging me $80 recovery per domain. *SPLENDID*. COOOOOOOL.

The space bar, when held down, controls the curser on your iPhone.... WHAT?!???!?!???!!!???!?? Did YOU know this?!?!? 😱🤯🤯🤯 Why was this not in the manual @AppleSupport @iPhoneTeam ?!?! 😂😂

Today I got this great book of photographs of the Liverpool music scene 1977-82. On page 56 there’s a photo of crowds waiting to go in to a Wah Heat gig and there, slap bang in the middle, is a 19-year-old me! My daughter Sophie, who is 19 now, is pointing me out. It made my day

Since yesterday’s Guardian story, there has been a lot of interest in @aendrew@twitter.com's bot that tracks the gender of sources in @ft stories. The core of the app is this open-source tool, which several other news organisations are also using bit.ly/2DFYiQQ

This little function maps `mv` to `git mv` when you're inside a git directory to track filename changes on git more succinctly.

```
function mv {
if git rev-parse --git-dir > /dev/null 2>&1; then
git mv $@
else
mv $@
fi
}
```
