For the last couple of years, the cover to our dishwasher’s soap dispenser has had a hair-trigger open button. Now it has developed the opposite problem – you have to really mash it to get the cover to open 🤪

It is unseasonably warm this weekend so I nipped out to the woods. Feels a bit incongruous for it to be 50°F while everything is asleep for the season

Haha wut AmigaOS 3.1 feels out of place on an A1000 but it totally works with the Parceiro
