            @dg01d There probably is a better way, but I don't know what it is 😉 Hacking worked OK though, and the incremental approach copes better with the inevitable edge cases.

              @dg01d As far as I remember, I made copies of all of the posts and then used a combination of very hacky scripts and Text Factories in BBEdit to make the conversion. It took a little while to figure out, but it worked well.

                @bestoftimes yes, that's the key thing.

                  @bestoftimes I'll probably back that Kickstarter too. I remember reading about his initial ideas a while ago, and it sounds great.

                    @tomcat Oof, my chemistry is rusty - iron phosphate? Maybe 😁

                      @tomcat I'm fine. Luckily I seem to have iron bones 😉

                        I slipped over on the ice this morning, and now my right elbow has a scar to match my left (from falling off my bike in the summer). It's good to be symmetrical, but my poor elbows... Apparently I fall elbow-first 🙄

                          I can highly recommend 'Go!' by Public Service Broadcasting if you are in need of pepping up. Great album (The Race for Space) actually.

                            @sbeebe Hehe 😂 I hope it makes sense now!

                              @jeremycherfas Robins are pretty tough :-)

                                @joanna It was a lovely moment.

                                  @jeremycherfas Robins do often sing in winter (maintaining territories I assume). It's a slightly different song, but they still sing.

                                    I made a recording of the Platform 2 robin on my phone. The quality isn't great, but you can just about hear his Platform 1 rival. http://d.pr/a/N59V

                                      Amazing robin song battle going on at University train station right now. It's Platform 1 Robin vs Platform 2 robin.

                                        @jeremycherfas That would be interesting to know! They are always fascinating programmes.
