Yes, I know, today is Ada Lovelace Day, and I don’t have a post for you. It kind of snuck up on me, and doing a proper ALD post requires research. I just don’t have the time for that right now. So instead I’m going to dedicate this post to my mum, who worked as a chemist for the Central Electricity Generating Board (doing environmental testing, no less) back in the 1950s. That was a tough gig.
