Good morning internet from beautiful Malta. A sizable chunk of Canonical are here for an Engineering Sprint. As a remote worker, it's great to get together with colleagues (and friends) in the same place to get stuff done. Even better in a pretty location by the sea :)

I watched one video of a guy driving an old Austin Allegro. Now YouTube is offering me lots of videos about Austin Allegros. This is not altogether a bad thing.

Approximately ~73% of crowdfunders I have backed across nearly 8 years, have been successful and delivered a product. Of the others, ~3% were cancelled, ~9% didn't hit the target, and ~6% were successful but didn't deliver. Not bad going. I keep a public track of them in a makeshift spreadsheet - docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d

Just had some re-heated left-overs, which reminded me...I love chicken wings. Saturday night especially so. I'm keen to know how other people do theirs. I tend to do this. 1) Break wings into flats & drumettes, 2) cover in mix of spices (usually home made, sometimes a packet), 3) coat in flour/egg/flour (sometimes spices in the flour too), 4) place wings on greaseproof paper in a tray in the oven, 5) Turn after 20 mins, 6) Another 20 mins, pour warm bbq sauce and back in oven for 10 mins. Done.
