Pinafore v1.18.0 released! https://github.com/nolanlawson/pinafore/releases/tag/v1.18.0 (thread)
Pillar 1 and 2 #covid19 test rates in England upper tier authorities, using the latest available data from @PHE_uk@twitter.com. Leicester really does stand out. Would be great to get retrospective weekly data, but not sure how likely that is 🤷♂️

mathematicians: "nice. Though don't bet on it always being hard. I mean, we solve hard problems all the time, haha."
cryptocoin nerds: "In fact, we're going to bet trillions of dollars on it remaining hard forever."
