There’s that but also something else was going on for Virginia Woolf — she didn’t like the hoi polloi writing letters just as many now disdain social snappery.

On “age-related trouble with names” that Mike mentions above, I think I have that but I also have an iPhone ;-) . Usually when I meet someone and cannot remember their name I do remember some other thing about them like wife’s name or part address or their organisation and so on, and since I put these sorts of things in my contact list on the phone I can usually retrieve their name. Of course I haven’t truly forgotten their name because I recognise it as being correct so it’s more a matter of retrieval from memory.

Mike, this is off-topic except that you have posted a lot about computers recently and maybe I should have emailed you, but I thought others may have the same experience. For at least the past several weeks the comments in TOP have not been refreshing normally. If I refresh the page (or go to another post and back again) then some of the later posts are missing but reappear on later refreshes. A current example is in the post “The Very Very Very Best Backup...” where sometimes Hugh Crawford's post at 01 April 0813 PM is the last post and at other times Isaac’s at 02 April 0810 PM is the last! This is mostly on Safari on my iPad Pro iOS 12.3 (but happened on 12.2 too) but also I have checked on that post on Safari on my Mac Mini MacOS Mojave. I know that sometime we get odd results if we log in when you are updating the blog but that does not seem to be the case here. Have you changed something about the commenting recently?
Well, I give you a ‘pinch and a punch for the first of the month’ since arguably you posted this after 12 noon from my point of view. You posted at 0943 EST which was 1345 BST here in UK and when your readers in, say, New Zealand read it it was already tomorrow!
For phones I’d like to see a convertible case that could fold somehow to make a grip, perhaps with a pop up wire finder. Bluetooth shutter button built in and switched on when folding out the case to make the grip.
