One of the books I read this year, An Idiot Abroad, actually mentioned how it was 'discovered' just over a decade ago. I assumed it would have been in a remote area but at no point did I think it would have been as invisible as it was.

I feel personally attacked after going through this exercise... Highly recommend it!

Looks... interesting. I love the first and it's not a film that needed a sequel but I'll be watching it anyway when it's available in March.

This is a good point:
If only anyone could remember a time when advertising wasn't based on privacy-invasive tracking, we could know whether there were any successful small businesses back then.
Pre-internet, would I have bothered advertising as a small business? Probably not, but my location and product would have had to have been right for it to work at all. Pre targeted ads, it was probably a bit more of a hit and hope approach. I've said it before, Google had advertising working really well with AdSense all those years ago when it created adverts related to the content is was being displayed alongside.
You definitely get more bang for your buck with targeted ads, but it's not something anyone should be comfortable with.

A nice iteration, and the finish looks like it might be a bit better. Sometimes the buttons don't all line up perfectly with the current one. I don't think this changes the state of switches in Apple's Home app though, which can only register one click per button while the Philips Hue app lets you assign multiple so you can cycle through scenes and the dimmer switches actually dim. You can change that using Shortcuts, but who has the time to figure out all of the logic for that?

Does the Sun always rise in the same direction? No. As the months change, the direction toward the rising Sun changes, too. The featured image shows the direction of sunrise every month during 2019 as seen from near the city of Amman, Jordan
