A new Day One update is out with some nice new features, but it introduced a cosmetic issue for GiftttDy. A trick I used to manage data relied on the html bookmark tag. I used it because it was unique enough to parse for, but when html is rendered, this tag doesn’t show up. Well, it shouldn’t but for some reason, the new Day One is showing it.

I think these crows are smarter than some humans.
A small South Pacific island is home to a crow with remarkable abilities that have scientists hooked. New Caledonian crows make and use tools – including a kind of fishing hook. They can solve complex problems and have even been recorded capturing grubs by repeatedly poking them with a stick until they are so agitated, they bite.
