I have the same problem. After going back to the opticians a few times, the solution I ended with was progressives that are great for long and middle distance (so good for driving and using the screen) but no use for reading or close-up work. For close-up I take my glasses off and hold the book/work a bit closer than I would have to with properly corrected vision.

I agree that no content from a public repo can be trusted, but at the moment I only use Git to pull from trusted private repos (which is probably a significant use case for people who are using Git in the workplace). That means yes, I need to update my Git client, but I don't need to sweat that I might already have been compromised by this vulnerability.

My defence against Americans criticising British coffee always used to be that the worst coffee I ever had was in a cafe in St. Petes, FLA. Then I had a coffee in a Starbucks at London Heathrow, and I was forced to concede to Americans that the worst coffee I ever had was indeed in Britain. :(

I, for one, will NEVER ride in or own a vehicle that does not have a steering wheel, foot-actuated throttle pedal, foot-actuated brake pedal, foot-actuated clutch pedal (where applicable), gear selector lever, etc. and I know I'm not alone in this

You never ride the subway, then? I don't think trains have steering wheels...
