This morning, flicking through a thing which has become unusual these days, a paper catalogue, I spotted a picture of a thing that could have been useful in a task that I have to do at some point in the future - a rotary sieve.

This sort of thing.

I read the details and carried on - without any interaction with the internet.

Now, about five hours later, I have just had a sponsored advert from Amazon on Facebook, offering me the actual thing I was looking at.

I didn't speak about it, as there was nobody else here, and there is even a bit of tape over the webcam.

They're surveilling you, as the Yanks would say. :strange:

For some weeks now, I have been a target of a campaign to get me to work in healthcare in Australia.

Specifically in the "Victorian Department of Health".

I initially took this to be a Tory government initiative for rationalising the NHS.

I am being repeatedly urged to download an app, which would come as a shock to my Nokia 3510i.

This app is apparently really useful, though, as it means that I can have "all my prayers" available all the time, and in five languages.

It's unclear about which languages they are, so I'm holding off on that, in case it's all Aramaic and stuff.
