@seanodiggity This is a really good point, and now seems obvious in hindsight, thanks for your insight. @seanodiggity Is an EULA strictly copyright, though? @taliaualiitia This unfollow bug is a renowned Twitter bug, it's been happening to me occasionally for *years*It sounds like a really loud neighbour, was wondering which one to complain to, but I guess Queen are my neighbours tonight!Perhaps I've understated just how loud and clear this is, I can hear every note and vocal, well enough to sing alon… https://t.co/gwoCs1fo8fI can clearly hear the live Queen gig from 2.5km away, that's one decent sound system, hope I'm not expected to have a ticket ... :-) @seopirath Prioritise for familiarity, unless you've got time to learn the quirks. @upulie An apartment I rented way back, had enough room for the fridge in the kitchen, but no way to fit up the stairs.
