Aaaand I gave up on this one about twenty minutes in when birtherism came up. I really like the concept of the new year show, but it feels like it's gone completely off the rails.

Fact check Scotland brexit not 100%

Scotland has voted in favour of the UK staying in the EU by 62% to 38% - with all 32 council areas backing Remain.


Turnout in Scotland was 67%

New Episode Title: Conspriacy Gate!

WOW! this show was something else. I didn't realize there were so many conspiracy wonks in the group.

Regarding the !00% figure on Scotland voting to remain, I think he was referring to 100% of the areas, not actual voters. I assume Ken's quote 'with all 32 council areas backing Remain.' confirms that.

Windows on top

Windows actually supports the always-on-top function. It just has no GUI means of activating it. But some programs use it, most prominently media players.

There are third-party tools which make it available globally, such as Ac'tivAid, written by the staff of German computer magazine c't. A quick English installation guide is at Ac'tivAid also brings other Linux-Goodies, such as drag a window with Alt+LMB.
