Yes, this is Godfrey again. I am glad a lot of you found last week’s Cool Trick™ useful. However, wouldn’t life be pretty boring if you just keep getting useful information?

Last but not least, Eileen M. Uchitelle committed a key error this week.
That’s all from me this week, I hope you find this information useless! For a more informative view, check out (no pun intended) the commits here.
Okay, please don’t unsubscribe! 😭 Your favorite rotation of editors will be back starting next week to replace me, so I’m sure things will get better from here!
