Bluesky creatives are thoughtstorming the new branding even as I type.

I suspect and hope that this functionality is used more for fuzzy logic than anything business critical. For example, if a feedback form contains the word 'complain' it gets routed automatically to
/dev/null the complaints department, whereas if it contains the word 'fabulous' it goes to marketing.
+1 for the home-made granola. I make this simple version but increase the butter and dial back the honey. I add chopped dark chocolate once it's cooled. The Cereal Killers' Buster Nut may have been similar but now I'll never know.
(El Reg: come for the insightful IT analysis, stay for the granola recipes. Who needs Mumsnet?)
So the PM wants us to buy more cars but his transport secretary wants us to drive them less.
OK, maybe this isn't completely contradictory. Climate control, surround sound, wi-fi, ergonomic seat - just leave them permanently on the drive, plugged in, as the perfect home office.
The important thing for any viable app is that it gets adopted as widely as possible. The government could be assuming that people will trust the NHS, as a brand, more than they'll trust Apple/Google.
If this is the case then they don't have to worry about distinctions such as centralisation/decentralisation of data, and anonymisation one way versus anonymisation another way, which will be of little concern to the vast majority.
With the cloud it could just be a matter of migrating data to a region that will remain within the EU. But then UK and EU27 data would have to be split between databases in two different regions.
It's then possible to imagine a crazy situation in which amalgamating query results from the two databases might be illegal, depending on where it was being done.
I thought the same: manage your source code from the pub - what could possibly go wrong?
In fact I imagine the most likely scenarios are seeing if some colleague has checked in yet, or reading the admiring comments on your latest refactor.
Though frankly if you're doing this in the pub you probably ought to find a better pub.
If client coders just want a small subset of the data, then traditionally they have to ask the developer of the server-side REST API to provide a method that returns just this subset. If there's only a standard GET method that returns everything, then the client has to incur the expense of calling that and then discard most of the response.
By giving the client the ability to select just what they want from a standard endpoint, GraphQL has the potential to speed up client/server development and/or interaction. However, there's the risk that in practice this approach will just transfer complexity from the API to the client.
I thought Dyson wanted to leave the EU because Brussels are going to limit the wattage of domestic appliances, ostensibly in order to save the planet from climate change. Their real reason for doing this, allegedly, is because Dyson's extra-powerful vacuum cleaners are wiping the floor (see what I did there) with the continental competition. The scoundrels.
So it doesn't really matter whether Sir Jim is in Singapore or not, as long as we Brits remain free to Take Back Control (TM) of our living-room carpets with the super-puissant suckage of our Mega-Cyclones.
We're not talking about whether the image itself, per se and on its own, is sexist, derogatory, offensive, stereotypical, discriminatory or otherwise.
We're talking about whether using it in an ad for a job is consistent with the spirit of equal opportunity that the company responsible pays the usual lip service to. Which it quite obviously isn't. Bahnhof are a bunch of sexist bros in a hole and should stop digging.
