  1. Thanks. This is very exciting. On a quick scan, I only see one story I know I’ve read. I look forward to these each time.

  2. The Head of Zeus website has issues. They should ask their developers why the site is trying to load resources that are blocked by CORS.

    The good news is the book is available for pre-order in the usual places.
